Half way between San Francisco and Los Angeles you’ll find San Luis Obispo. A nice place to shop downtown, visit one of the states great colleges in Cal Poly, SLO, wine taste, or stop for a bite on the way to historic Hearst Castle. Or like us, you can spend the night one of their charming Inns like Apple Farm!
With the luxury of a fine hotel blended with a turn-of-the century Victorian Inn ambiance, the Apple Farm Inn is a wonderful place to stay, dine, shop, and wine taste all in one spot! There is so much to do on the property you don’t have to leave but to explore more of San Luis Obispo. Falling in love with the town and the Inn, it’s all the little things that makes it so charming.
Score mega points for checking in and grabbing some fresh homemade cookies that they also sell with other yummies on site! They were a perfect accompanyment to the Royal Kona blend coffee (I love Hawaii) in the room!
Speaking of the room, so gorgeous, so much space for one with two beds, turreted seating, a fireplace, and large spacious bathroom. Love all the cozy pillows everywhere to make each seating or sleeping space ultimately comfortable!Art in the room and in the halls are those to admire, including the mission print that we loved and actually visited the next day! The teacup night light and the fresh carnations in the restroom were precious added touches!Take a stroll around the property and there is SO much to see and do. We spent about an hour in the gift shop! With the restaurant serving meals all day, the adjacent bakery, and gift shop, you can find branded merchandise, gifts, jewelry, housewares, and branded merchandise.
The Old Millhouse is a reproduction of a 19th Century gristmill where you can see the 14 foot waterwheel in action. The water power allows Apple Farm to produce the ice cream they sell about 100 gallons a week! You can sample the ice cream inside along with their cider and even popcorn making the kids leaving with big grins!
Because of the weather, we couldn’t enjoy the pool this trip, but wow, what a fabulous gem we found in the Apple Farm Inn. Check it out if you’re in the area!
