The Whitakers' trip to California - days 6/7

A travel blog entry by libbywhitaker

So we set off from Yosemite to Carmel, driving through a lot of flat, farming communities. The earth was very brown and dry, so there must be some truth in all the stories of drought. About an hour and a half in we stopped for some refreshment at a small town called Mariposa - we felt like we'd gone back in time as it resembled some of the old films we've seen on TV - a cute little place but not somewhere for a fortnight's holiday! Arrived ...

... we cut a sway through the crowd. We felt like we were in an episode of "Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous." Women discussed their latest Jimmy Choo additions while men laughed as they spoke about their latest business acquisitions. On reaching the pro shop I asked the young man behind the counter for the price of eighteen. "$495 are the green fees sir..." Needless to say we didn't play, still we ...

... and once held an entire zoo of animals. We didn't see them until driving past the estate the next day, but we did catch a glimpse of the zebras that still roam the Hearst land, one of the few remaining zoo animals.After the castle, we had a quick lunch and beer at the Scamp before heading over to Paso Robles. The drive was a gorgeous one that led us through countless wineries. I was outnumbered two to one on the winery front, so we headed to ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Back Bay Inn Baywood Park

    Perfect Romantic Getaway

    from

    We spent beautiful 3 days at the Back Bay Inn in Los Osos. This is the perfect place to getaway from everything and fall in love (again). We had Room 8 which is upstairs in the corner. It was large, comfortable and very private. We had no problem hearing people in the other rooms. We arrived in time for the wine and cheese hour. We took our wine and cheese and sat out on the lawn fronting the bay and watched the sun go down. The Innkeeper gave us the name of a local wine tour company (Central Coast Wine Tours) which would pick us up at the hotel. Amazingly, we were able to book 2 last-minute seats for the next day. The next day we awoke to the most gorgeous view of the bay. After enjoying our breakfast, which was quietly left at our doorstep, we spent an incredible day touring the Edna Valley wine tasting, having lunch and making new friends. We had dinner at Las Cazuelas Mexican Restaurant. We would highly recommend the Back Bay Inn to anyone and plan to return when we get a chance. It is our new favorite place!

    Pros: Location, location, location; Full continental breakfast delivered to the room; amenities; innkeeper; atmosphere.

    Cons: Bed is starting to sag. Las Cazuelas is typical - I was hoping for some more seafood dishes; parking is tight.

    Calm elegance

    from

    We just returned from one night at the elegant Back Bay Inn with its unobstructed view of Morro Bay. Wished we could have stayed longer. Hiking in Montana de Oro State Park a lovely addition.

    Birdwatchers Paradise

    from

    The Back Bay Inn has won our hearts for many years to come due to the incredible waterfront location that is so beautiful it is hard to describe.

    Baywood Park is a quiet area of Morro Bay and is the perfect place to enjoy all of the surrounding state parks, as well as Hwy. 1 up or down the coast.

    Our room was only 50 feet from the waters edge and was already equipped with a full size floor telescope as well as a pair of binoculars. And believe me, we used them every chance we got.

    The wildlife outside our room started at dawn and was a spectacular display of hard to find birds. All right outside our balcony window.

    The tide is fun to watch as different levels attract different species of birds.

    Breakfast was hand delivered first thing in the morning by the gracious innkeeper and we were happy to be able to eat without being forced to leave the spectacle taking place in front of us.

    We will be back with our friends...

    Beautiful spot on the bay

    from

    We stayed at Back Bay Inn for three nights this week. It was early November and therefore a quiet time of year, but in any case had no problems with any noise--in fact it was a very quiet spot. Our room (no. 8) was the upstairs room at the end, with a balcony looking over the Bay--a perfect spot for bird-watching, which we enjoy. Los Osos is a nice, small community. Don't look for night-time action here, although nearby restaurants Las Casuelas (Mexican) and especially Mare Blu (California cuisine) are excellent.

    California's little secret

    from

    We have traveled the west coast for years and actually believed we knew all the best nooks and crannys. That is why we were so surprised when we discovered this quiet little gem. We read a publication mentioning the Inn as one of the best and we were not dissapointed. Morro Bay is at it's best at 8AM waterfront breakfast.

    The innkeepers made our visit special. We will be back and back and back...

    A hidden gem on the California coast

    from

    We stayed at the Back Bay Inn for one night a few weeks ago. It's a shame we only had one night to spend there! It was so lovely and peaceful...our room was on the first floor with a patio right on the bay. There were colorful little boats in the bay, and the birds were fun to watch! Our room was a decent size, with a king bed and plenty of room for all our luggage (this was one stop on a 10 day trip). The innkeeper was really helpful with recommending restaurants and had menus for us to look at. In the morning, breakfast was delivered outside our room in a basket, which was a unique idea! The only drawback was that we had neighbors who were arguing very loudly in the morning, but I'm sure this is not a normal occurrence!

    This is a great place to stop overnight if you're driving up or down the coast, as it's about halfway between L.A. and S.F. It's also close to Hearst Castle, which is an amazing place to visit. I would highly recommend the Back Bay Inn to everyone!

    Lovely! Back Bay Inn/Baywood Park

    from

    We stayed 2 nights in August, in Baywood Park, at the Back Bay Inn Bed & breakfast. nice little town, extremely quiet! which was exactly what we were looking for. The Inn has only 13 rooms, all with views of the bay. Our room had a balcony and we really enjoyed being on the water. A basket filled with continental type breakfast is delivered to your room around 8am. There is also a little "Coffee & Things" shop right next to the Inn, which we used to supplement it with excellent coffee & extras, breakfasting on the balcony. Comfortable bed, nice hosts. ..... There is a good Mexican restaurant next door, and a GREAT upscale restaurant, Mare Blu, across the street (where we had a fabulous dinner). .... beautiful Montana de Oro State Park is just minutes away, and there are great places to walk, explore the beaches, bird-watch, or just plain relax. Planning to return soon!

    Wonderful! Can't beat it for the price.

    from

    This is a small, contemporary, beautifully landscaped 2-story inn located directly on an inlet of Morro Bay. Our first floor room with its own covered patio had huge windows looking out on lawn and inlet, and we thrilled at the peacefulness and beauty of this place. As the tide receded each day, hundreds of birds of all sorts swooped down and skittered along the newly exposed banks, and we watched their antics in fascination. Our room with king size bed was attractive and comfortable, and we were surprised and very pleased to find a basket of delicious muffins, fruit and orange juice delivered to our door each morning. We had our breakfast out on the patio, augmented by coffee from our in-room coffee maker. We'd planned to make this our base for touring the area, which we did, but really we hated to leave it each day! We visited in January, during a cold, rainy period, and still had a great time. It must be absolutely incredible during the rest of the year.

    An Inn on the Bay

    from

    We considered a multi-night, mid-January stay in Morro Bay, but the town was a bit too "busy" for us. A ten minute drive around the bay took us to the town of Baywood Park and the Back Bay Inn. All thirteen of the rooms featured either a balcony or a large window facing the bay, great for birdwtching along the flyway. Our room was large, and featured a king bed, gas fireplace, and a full bath. The in-room coffee pot got us started each morning. A short time later, a beautiful basket of fruit, baked goods and juice arrived at our door. If there was one short coming with the room it was it's relatively thin walls. We often heard the neighbors, but not to the point of a lack of sleep. The staff guided us to the town's Farmers Market, the amazing cliffs of Montana de Oro state Park, and excellent dining at Mare Blu Ristorante, all worth a visit.
