Park your vehicle at the Bridge Street Inn

Bridge Street Inn encourages guests to park their car and enjoy their legs.

We have been committed to maintaining and promoting a sustainable environment here at the Bridge Street Inn and in our local and global communities long before the massive California drought began 4 years ago. 

While 2016 has finally brought some rainfall, water is still in short supply in Cambria.

We have been able to achieve sustainability in conjunction with providing a comfortable and charming atmosphere at a reasonable price. Our imperfectly charming 115-year-old house exemplifies this belief that charming surroundings can easily be had by making do with simple things.


We strive to minimize use of resources, use least impacting products, recycle/reuse our waste products and positively contribute to our community. Please join us – we’d love to talk about putting beliefs into action and get your feedback as we continue to experiment. Many ideas have been successfully utilized and new ones are always welcome.

We use the following eco-friendly practices:


Minimize Use Of Resources:

  • Line dried laundry

  • No stay-over room cleaning

  • Old house, old carpets & old stuff

  • Owner & interns clean, maintain & garden (no special service contractors)

  • Chemical-free yard landscaping

  • Energy efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs and appliances

  • Bike, walk or carpool for errands and supply purchase and now use all Electric Vehicle, charged by power from on-site solar panels.

  • Minimal use of disposables 


  • Laundry water for yard irrigation

  • Lid sinks-toilets: Clean water for hand washing becomes grey water for flushing

  • Compost food scraps and yard waste

  • Recycle cans, bottles, jars & paper

Minimally Impacting Products:

  • Travel-size towels

  • Lid sinks

  • Biodegradable soaps & detergents

  • Non-toxic cleaning products (minimal use of bleach only when necessary)

  • Local produce and flowers, from our garden and/or local Soto's True Earth Market.

Help Us By:

  • Bringing & reusing your own towels when possible (we recommend travel towels)

  • Minimize use of wintertime heating (Bring warm clothes & bundle up)

  • Keep showers short

  • Turn off water taps when water isn't being used
