The Premises 

Farmhouse-inspired interiors, lavish Italian linens and Aesop bath products – no design detail was overlooked at San Luis Creek Lodge, an elevated bed and breakfast in downtown San Luis Obispo with interiors by Nina Freudenberger, the arbiter of surf-shack chic. In this easygoing California city that’s almost exactly midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles off the cliff-hugging Route 1, the streets brim with art, culture, independent shops and character-filled cafés (there’s been a ban on drive-thrus since the 1980s). Just beyond, you’ll find surfers’ paradise Pismo Beach, dramatic coastal hikes and the vineyards of on-the-rise wine region Paso Robles.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

There’s no restaurant on-site but you’ll find the city’s best dining in San Luis Obispo’s vibrant downtown hub – it’s twenty minutes on foot or five minutes by bike.

Experience the Extraordinary 

Borrow one of the hotel’s stylish Linus bikes to explore San Luis Obispo; one of the city’s unofficial landmarks is Bubblegum Alley on Higuera Street, a 70ft-long alleyway where passersby are actively encouraged to stick their spent bubblegum on the walls (squeamish types, you can probably skip this one). You’ll find fresher fare at the famous farmers’ market (every Thursday from 6-9pm) which is more of a weekly block party than a place to do your weekly shopping – as well as fresh produce and street food, there are live bands, bars, a bouncy castle and face painting. The next day, walk it off with a hike on the coastal paths and (in spring) wildflower-strewn trails of Montana D’Oro state park. Or, if you’ve brought your board, head out and join the surfers at Pismo Beach (if you’re just spectating, you can watch them bobbing in the breakers from the safety of the pier). Conditions are optimal for creating premium wines in this region of Central California and the rise of the Paso Robles region’s prestige is proof. Book ahead for tastings at Tablas Creek in the Santa Lucia mountains, Austin Hope where there are outdoor cabanas facing the vines, or Justin which offers food pairings of cheese, charcuterie and chocolate with their Bordeaux-style blends.


You’ll find this former roadside inn in San Luis Obispo, a charmingly laidback city in Central California.


There’s a small airport in San Luis Obispo, but you’ll need to connect through a larger hub like San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas or Denver.


The San Luis Obispo Amtrak station has daily services by the Coast Starlight train (which travels between Los Angeles and Seattle) and the Pacific Surfliner (which travels along the coast from San Luis Obispo to San Diego).


A former roadside inn, the lodge makes the perfect overnight stop if you’re cruising California’s coastline and there’s plenty of free parking on site.
