You can't go wrong when you're staying in the Central California Coast.
“ It also neighbors some of the finest beaches in the state, championship golf courses, gourmet dining, farmland, fisheries, and the famous Hearst Castle.”
Between Los Angeles and San Francisco resides some of the most beautiful coastline on the planet. More than that, there are world class golf courses, wineries, spas and much more. These four boutique hotels offer luxury and comfort to make the most of your stay.
Apple Farm's Wine Country Inn
San Luis Obispo, CA
The delightfully charming Apple Farm Inn offers 104 individually decorated guest rooms, each with its own fireplace. Beyond well-appointed accommodations, Apple Farm has three acres of landscaped grounds to explore, including an old mill, a two-story gift shop, a relaxing massage center, and a legendary restaurant and bakery open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The homey ambiance of Apple Farm Inn makes it an ideal escape in beautiful San Luis Obispo Wine Country.
Halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco on scenic Highway 1, the popular Cliffs Resort is a full-service oceanfront property with breathtaking views and first-class amenities. But it’s far more than an alluring coastal location that dazzles guests. The Cliffs Resort is located in the heart of California’s Central Coast wine country with more than 200 world-class wineries. It also neighbors some of the finest beaches in the state, championship golf courses, gourmet dining, farmland, fisheries, and the famous Hearst Castle.
Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort & Spa
San Luis Obispo, CA
Committed to health and wellness for more than 100 years, this oasis rests atop natural mineral springs. It offers 72 guest rooms and suites, each with its own private hot tub. The beautifully landscaped grounds also feature an award-winning spa and treatment center, an on-site yoga dome where yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi, and meditation classes are held, and a restaurant featuring spontaneous garden cuisine inspired by the on-site Chef’s Garden. From here, guests can hike or bike along trails that lead to the ocean.
Talk about location: this casually elegant beachfront retreat sits at the southernmost point of 22-mile-long Pismo Beach, just three blocks from downtown. The rooms include featherbeds, fireplaces, and most have private balcony hot tubs. Guests can opt to have breakfast baskets delivered each morning. There’s also a third-floor restaurant with stunning ocean views. This is a great spot for beach weddings and meetings. Those seeking even more privacy will like the separate three-bedroom Beach House.
