The Cottage at Old Morro is the perfect glamping stop for your Central Coast adventure! Or maybe you've been off the grid camping and need a little refresher with a shower and a cozy bed! Either way, this tastefully appointed and well stocked cottage is perfect for a getaway to Paso Robles wine country, the beach, San Luis Obispo, hiking trips or the famous HWY 1!

The cottage is set in a beautiful spot at the lower end of our property under a mature and majestic grove of oak trees adjacent to a beautiful white barn with overhead twinkling bistro lights. The door off the kitchen opens up to an oversized sundeck where you'll find a vintage teak table and chairs where you can enjoy your morning cup of coffee or an al fresco meal. Our property is quiet, peaceful and, although close to town, feels quite removed. A morning walk on our quiet road is a great way start to the day. There is a seasonal creek that runs along the back side of the barn which often draws deer and wild turkey to our property. Downstairs you will find a full kitchen with stovetop, oven, service for four, coffee, bakeware, cookware and a sitting area with a large smart TV loaded with Netflix, ABC, and other streaming channels. Downstairs you will also find a full bathroom stocked with plush towels for your stay. Heading upstairs there is a California King memory foam bed with crisp white linens along with a sitting area and space to unpack your bag and stay a while. 

Shaded under the oaks with pockets of warm sun is a beautiful white barn, an oversized sun deck and a stunning landscape. There is a fire pit (check for fire ban), lawn games, full BBQ and large table all to share in a terrace between the cottage and the barn. Firewood is available for $8/bundle if fires are permitted, please check. Sorry, no pups in the cottage.  We love kids but find that our property is best enjoyed kid free.

Wow... amazing... beautiful... perfect. We absolutely loved the Cottage and our Host April! She is super responsive, friendly, and helpful! It is the perfect size and so very well decorated and outfitted to make the stay comfortable and enjoyable. There is a kitchenette, small fridge, lounge couch, and TV (but who wants to watch tv in such a scenic place!?) There is cornhole, and other games out by the deck! The location of the Cottage is perfectly between Morro Bay, Atascadero, and SLO to enjoy many vineyards, kayak, walk and hike! It couldnt have been any better. Thank you April for making my Wife's Bday Present so memorable!

My visit to the Cottage at Old Morro was just last week, but I've already recommended this stay to friends and family looking for a calming and safe getaway. April and her family did a fantastic job creating a space that is bright, welcoming, and yes, as previous comments mentioned, sparkling clean. Thank you, April and the Peet Family! You have a gift for hospitality and my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed the space and all the amenities you provided (e.g. a complementary wine, a book which describes local sites to visit, how you provided all things needed for a short stay - towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, kitchenware, a mini-fridge, the whole gambit). Overall, thank you! We loved our stay and hope to visit again one day.

The cottage was everything we could have hoped for and more! April was so generous and welcoming and helped us with everything we needed, and the setting is so beautiful. We had the perfect level of privacy and comfort, and we’re so sad to leave!

This cottage combined all the best of California into a neat, beautifully kitted out package. We so enjoyed our stay in this jewel of a cottage, cooking outside on the grill and eating beneath the oaks overlooking the barn. Thanks for making our stay so blissfull.

The Cottage at Old Morro is simply magical. Every single detail has been carefully thought out and beautifully done. We spent the mornings on the deck, watching the sun come up with our coffee, and enjoyed wine in the evening under the stars and string lights. April went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable, and her husband Josh was also available for any help we might need. The location is perfectly located in a spot where you feel far away, but can easily hop in the car and head to the beach. I cannot wait to go back! Thank you so much, April!

Exceeded our expectations in every way! The Cottage is immaculate, decorated beautifully, with every amenity, and more spacious than it appears in the pics! It’s location is peaceful and gorgeous, and the bed and shower are both better than many expensive hotels! It was a perfect getaway, and we look forward to returning sometime!

Staying here was like a breath of fresh air. The pictures do not do this place justice! Beautifully maintained and perfectly quaint, this place was all that and more. The cottage is far enough removed from the hustle and bustle, but just a short drive away from hiking trails, the ocean and countless wineries. Not to mention that April and her family were wonderful hosts, offering local recommendations and checking in throughout our stay. Couldn’t have asked for more. We will be back!
