... The route is famous for the soaring views of the Pacific and the amazing wildlife and bridges since it was build in the early 1930s. We had a sunny day for it but it was a little hazy.
The road winds along and for us, going north to south on the right (we're on the sea-side), has great views of rock outcrops in a deep blue swell. The haze made it a little difficult to capture some of the views certainly added to the sense of scale.
... an extra dollar or 2 they put a scoop of cold crab on top to mix in n OMG is it ever good. Guess some of the Costco's carry their Clam Chowder Soup so I personally recommend for you costco shoppers you look to see if they carry it.

... is little room for towns on this coastline. We stop for lunch in Big Sur, CA and enjoy some great sandwiches. The landscape here is much different than the coast that we are used to. It reminded us more of the coast of Spain on our honeymoon. Green crops seem like they are everywhere, artichokes by the miles in Castroville. It's 4 pm in Monterey and Mark wants to see Gilroy, CA. Sara agrees, but is not quite as interested. ...
... to San Luis Obispo, a lovely town about half way between San Francisco and LA. San Luis Obispo has been named to be the happiest and the friendliest city in the US (according to several researches and some book by National Geographic) I had decided to stay 2 nights to discover the area. Verdict? My favorite Hostel in California (HI Hostel Obispo - Home away from home the moment I walked in the door), probably one of my ...

Serenaded last night by a chorus of frogs croaking in the courtyard outside our window, the scent of jasmine and white wisteria in the air. It is crisp, in the teens and a bit overcast, but the sun pops out because after all, this is sunny California. Had he been in a hotel room and not been behind the wheel of a car, he ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Abella Garden Inn Arroyo Grande
I cannot say enough good things about our visit at the Abella Garden Inn!
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.
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.
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
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!
