With the common use of AirBnB, the traditional bed & breakfast may seem like something of the distant past. Perhaps it conjures up images of lace doilies and awkward encounters with strangers, but the truth of the experience is much, much different.

Today’s B&Bs offer guests a high-touch, personal and localized experiences and service that is difficult to find in any other type of lodging. From ocean views to on-site vineyards; communal patio space to farm-fresh, gourmet breakfasts, the features of SLO CAL’s B&Bs provide a varied and customized stay!

Good Morning Gourmet

Blue Dolphin Inn

Foodie or not, you can't beat waking up to the perfect omelet made with farm-fresh eggs, cheese from the local creamery and just-picked veggies from the backyard garden. Whether served in your room or in a dining room with a handful of fellow travelers, having a delicious, homemade breakfast is the way to start your vacation day. 

Room with a View...and a Sound and a Taste

Beach Bicycle

Fall asleep to the sounds of the waves crashing. Sip a glass of wine on the patio above the vineyard that grew the grapes. Sip your morning coffee in a Mediterranean-inspired garden. Whether you want to be close to the dining and nightlife scene or tucked away from the world, The views and atmospheres of beds and breakfasts in San Luis Obispo County are as varied as the landscape. 

Secluded or Spacious

While you may picture a small room with a shared bathroom when you think of staying in a Bed & Breakfast, but today's abodes offer a variety of different accommodations and most don't require sharing the facilities. Meet your new neighbors (or bring some along) under the oaks of the duplex cabin on a vineyard ranch. Soak in your private whirlpool tub at a historic seaside inn. Read your novel on the couch in front of your fireplace in a downtown master suite. From social to solitary, your perfect retreat awaits!
