With a wine reception upon arrival, my wife and I sat for a couple hours on our patio and sipped the Paso Robles cab while watching the birds and...

There's something magical about those light-giving French doors opening from my suite to a patio with view of misty Morro Bay, a lounging lawn, garden of succulents, and weathered fishing boats.

This is a serene, quiet and beautiful property. The rooms are large and very clean, the beds very comfortable, which is a must for us. We had a lovely view from our room. The staff is excellent; responsive and personable. The included breakfasts were wholesome, varied and delicious. I would recommend this getaway to family and friends.

The bay was still and quiet. The grounds were beautiful and just asked you to sit down and read. For the more active, far off to the side,...

We are back and it is even better than a year ago when we were here. It is a beautiful place with impeccable amenities. One of the true hidden gems in California. Wine and snacks in the evening and wonderful coffee and breakfast in the morning. All while viewing the bay.
