Cayucos and the Cass House
have a date with history
Or just a romantic getaway! This luxurious Restaurant & Inn in Cayucos,
CA offers five exquisite appointed guest rooms and an intimate dining room
that is open for dinner five nights a week, both of which are housed in the
meticulously restored home of the town’s founder, Captain James Cass.
Born in Bristol England in 1824, Captain James Cass crossed the Atlantic
31 times before the age of 19, but would ultimately call California his home.
James Cass built his house in stages between 1867 and 1875, at the time it served as the hub of
all cultural and social life in Cayucos. In 1993, after a 12 year period of abandonment, Gary &
Nancy Bagnall bought the property and spent 14 years meticulously restoring the house to it’s
original splendor, with the intention of turning it into a boutique hotel and restaurant. With the
same passion that James Cass invested in building the house, the Bagnalls made sure no detail
was overlooked before opening its doors to the public in the summer of 2007.
The ornamental, culinary and entertaining gardens that surround the house are available for
events or leisurely wandering and admiring. The Cass House is an ideal retreat for unwinding
and enjoying the relaxed lifestyle and beautiful scenery of California’s Central Coast.
