... time I could see the dam I had pretty much accepted it wasn’t meant to be. However always know that when you’re throwing a big swimbait it could be any cast. So as I neared the dam I set up on a sandy bank and threw past a large rock that was half in the water. Honestly it didn’t look that good. But what I learned about reading the landscape both above and below the water is that even though it may look bare out of the water often it’s ...
Up at reasonable time, repack my stuff, breakfast (forgo the potatoes today, too greasy). Checkout and cab to union station. The tour has booked me on the Coastal Starlight. Had to get there well in advance to check in & get my seat. Train was running a bit late. I have a window seat and when we finally board I discovered it is upstairs. Yay! The chap next to me was a very friendly Aussie who is now a US citizen, told me what ...
... sea lions that live under and around a pier at Avila beach. We tried to find the Hartford Pier with the seafood and sea lions. We didn’t find it yesterday because we didn’t realize little Avila beach has three piers and Hartford pier is the last one. But, we found it today! And saw the precious sea lions that I’d held out hope for and that Dave had doubted were there. I was elated!!! They are so cute!
So you could drive ...

After we left we were heading towards Avila Beach, but continued to drive through the Edna Valley so I could taste wine at the many wineries, but first we drove to the Tackle Warehouse (Dave was so excited) and he bought some giant lures. After that we went to Old Edna Town site which is in the center of the Edna Valley wine region and includes some restored ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Back Bay Inn Baywood Park
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!
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.
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.
Beautiful spot on the bay
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
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...

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!
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!
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.
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.
