After the Ostrich farm, everyone was hungry and tired. So what could be a better way to get energy than eating...
We found out this ice cream lab/shop by sampling one of their flavors during the Sunset Celebration festival, and because we were stopping by the town, we decided why not get ice cream. We parked about 3 blocks away from the ice cream shop so we would get a semi-workout after we got the ...
... the waves seem quite amusing for a while. However, nearly an hour and a half later we were still being thrown around in the back of the boat 'admiring' the whales and combined with trying to balance to take photos was enough to make more than a handful of people on the boat turn green and disappear into the toilets. Not as bad as some, but pretty close to feeding the fish herself, Lou spent the remainder of the trip chewing gum and staring desperately at the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Abella Garden Inn Arroyo Grande
The best B & B I have ever stayed at!
I cannot say enough good things about our visit at the Abella Garden Inn!
My wife & I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and wanted to get away for a few days to relax. From the moment we arrived the owner, Gina Glass, made us feel right at home, sparing no effort to make us feel welcome and comfortable. I felt like I was staying with an old friend.....one morning we even had breakfast with her in the kitchen!!!
The Inn is extremely well maintained, and very clean. The grounds are gorgeous, with a beautiful little waterfall and stream that at night is softly light and is complimented by the most enchanting music emanating from hidden speakers in the garden. It made for a most relaxing end to the days activities......
Gina is a wonderful hostess with an excellent knowledge of the Central Coast area...she directed us to several nice restaurants and shops in the area......She was an invaluable resource for sightseeing tips!
An example of Gina's special attention to detail: In casual conversation on the day of our arrival we revealed that it was our 25th anniversary. Then, while we were out for the day, she decorated our room in the most festive way, complete with a large "Happy Anniversary" sign draped across the foot of our bed which had been sprinkled with rose petals and turned down for the night!! It was really very touching and I will never forget the look of happy astonishment on my wife's face! It really made for a special moment....
Thank you Gina!
Terrific Unique Experience - great food
My husband and I went to the Abella Garden Inn in Arroyo Grande, California, for his birthday, and a much needed rest for him. I have to praise Gina for her hospitality. She is a wonderful hostess and has so much enthusiasm and energy. Just like being part of the family. The house was beautiful, the room very comfortalbe and the breakfast was spectacular. She even shared a recipe. It was so nice to be able to sit in the garden and just relax to the sound of the fountain and later share a glass of wine in the sitting room and listen to the rain. She provided us with information about the area, with directions to fun shops and wineries. We plan to go back the first opportunity we have.
Loved the Abella Garden Inn
The Abella Garden Inn is a fabulous bed and breakfast, made even more wonderful by the Inn's host Gina.
The Inn itself is gorgeous, with a wonderful garden area/gazebo/etc. The rooms are spacious and well decorated, and the atmosphere encourages one to relax (that's what you're there for, isn't it?)
Gina, a bubbly Italian lady, is a joy to talk to over breakfast. Speaking of which, her breakfasts should be legendary - She's an unbelievable cook, and her breakfasts are to die for. She manages to figure out something to "whip up" with whatever is on hand, and I could eat breakfast there every day of the week :)
If you're near Arroyo Grande / Pismo Beach, and you want to stay at a B&B, give her Inn a try - You won't be disapointed.
My wife and I spent our 6th wedding anniversary here. Gina, our insightful, boisterous italian innkeeper made us feel at home and comfortable. She prepares a dynamite brunch (I loved the fritata) and gave us a list of great places to visit while in the area. I would definately come back and reccomend this B&B.
If you are looking for a great bed and breakfast that is more of a home atmosphere away from home, you need to try Abella Garden Inn. Your host Gina goes out of her way to make you feel like family.
Naturally Gina being Italian serves the best breakfast, healthy and full of love.
The garden, gazebo and waterfall, and brook in the yard is beautiful and relaxing.
If you want a real treat after dinner try Doc Berstein's ice cream parlor on Grand in Old Town, Arroyo Grande, you won't be sorry.
PS, Our stay was September 23-25th, 2005
Abella Garden Inn, located in the little town of Arroyo Grande (just south of Pismo Beach) is a sweet, refreshing B&B hideaway, just off the 101 highway. The diminutive owner, Gina, greets newcomers enthusiastically -- like old friends returning from a long trip. The accommodations are top quality in every way; plush carpets, comfortable beds with the best covers and bedspreads, some rooms with hot tubs, lovely dining and sitting areas downstairs, and even a nice selection of VHS movies at no extra cost for your in-room entertainment, should you so desire (we did!). Gina is big on personal attention, and cooks up an amazing deluxe breadfast, the likes of which we've never seen before in a one-person managed B&B. Every detail is tastfully presented with Gina's "classy" touch! There is also a newly created garden area in the front of the property, with a small stream and waterfall, peacefully enclosed and separate from the surrounding residences.
Highly recommended if you're wanting to be pampered.
Don't let the neighborhood fool you! An Oasis awaits you at this beautifully appointed Bed & Breakfast! Come in off Oak Street in to a lovely garden of roses, hydranga's. Walk through the gazebo on your way to the office, past the bubbling stream and you excitement rises to see what's in store for you.
Your hostess, Gina Glass...what a breath of fresh air.
Outgoing,warm and friendly, she makes you feel right at home!
The Inn is nicely appointed - rooms are spacious and comfy with a spa for 2!
Movies to watch, cookies before bed, coffee if you need it in the morning, newspaper too.
Gina provides menus from some of the nicer restaurants complete with driving directions!
If you like to eat breakfast, Gina cooks up a terrific one, and you won't go hungry with any skimpy foo foo meal. Apple puff pancakes, crepes, fresh fruit, fritata, bacon, ham, sausages. We spent 2 days, and each was a gastronomic delight, extremely delicious!
We met some wonderful people, and a few repeat stays, and now I know why!
What a lovely place to stay near Pismo Beach!
Experience the Charm of Abella
We were booked at one of those "chain" outfits, only to find out they had over booked, and sent us to Abellas.
What a treat! This beautiful B&B is , the garden is lovely with a rock waterfall. The rooms are so inviting and more than comfortable, with the featherbeds and wonderful linnens.
The Charm of owner/hostes Gina is not to be missed, you feel like family and she brings all the guest together with her warm and open nature.
Breakfast was just as much a treat visualy as it was to the tastebuds. Gina also decorated our room for my boyfriends brithday, with flowers on the bed, candles all around the room, chcolates,and champagne. It was lovely,
Thankyou Gina for a wonderful visit. We'll be back
LOVED Abella Garden Inn
Look no further! Abella Garden Inn is thee place to stay in the San Luis Obispo area. I couldn't say enough about Gina and my experience at this friendly, warmly decorated, immaculately clean, spacious place to relax and enjoy. The food is abundant and much more delightful than a typical breakfast. Gina is attentive, detail oriented, and very entertaining to listen to. I loved how a 24-hour coffee & tea station is provided with snacks. Sherry is provided in the living room to enjoy at your leisure. A library of movies and board games are also provided. Appetizers and wine are provided every evening at 5pm. I was also impressed with our in-room spa. Gina sets the tone of the experience with her italian energy and was happy to recommend an itinerary of activities when asked. I could go on and on, but hopefully, I have said enough. My only regret is that I didn't bring Gina a little hostess gift, for she definitely deserved one!
After spending a long time trying to make a reservation, we came across Abella Garden Inn B&B. Gina, the owner had a lot of great ideas and attractions for us to see and described the B&B so beautiful we just had to stay. When we arrived it was PERFECT!!. The B&B was just as she described it and the food was delicious. Gina has a great sense of humor and makes you feel very welcomed. For a nice get-a-way We strongly recommend Gina and the Abella Garden Inn B&B!
