Located in the rolling hills outside the picturesque town of Arroyo Grande lies this gem. The term B&B does not do this place justice, I think of it as more of a small private home with comfortable self contained guest quarters arranged around a beautifully landscaped grounds.
The hosts are friendly but carefully maintain the professional distance needed to let visitors find their feet, relax and wander around the grounds. They offered sage advice about distances to local attractions and certainly helped us achieve the goals of visiting certain places without knocking ourselves senseless with a long drive that we had initially thought of doing.
The breakfasts were too delicious and plentiful, Tony and Pat know how to lavish you with the most comfortable bed and softest sheets you'll ever find.
It is hard to say goodbye, so do stay for longer than we did.
If I had to find fault at all, it is that hard-core coffee nuts from Australia would appreciate espresso coffee over filter, but that is basically a cultural difference.

... our next stop. The story is here that this unfinished mansion was donated to the state who now run various tours through it. It is full of amazing and different styles and collected pieces built up over a number of years.

... They will try and meet us somewhere on the pier for a drink, but probably closed too. A beautiful day to sit by the pool for our bodies first exposure to the sun. We had our Christmas dinner, shrimp in butter and garlic white wine sauce with spaghetti. Better than any restaurant could deliver! Sat on the beach and watched the sunset, had a nice fire in our fire pit, dunked in the hot tub, read awhile and called it Christmas! Guess we will see the Coopers tomorrow. No ...
... For dinner we went into town with Vicky and Dale from the Rental Association. That evening we hung out at the campfire with the group. It's Friday morning, July 19th and we are on our way home. Thousands of miles later and 60 stops, our trip has come to and end. It has been an amazing experience and the best part is that we are still speaking. Till the next trip! Happy ...
... Pacific Ocean, which provides dramatic seaside vistas. The surrounding countryside visible from the mansion remains largely undeveloped.
The Castle was built on Rancho Piedra Blanca that William Randolph Hearst's father, George Hearst, originally purchased in 1865. The younger Hearst grew fond of this site during many childhood family camping trips. He inherited the ranch, which had grown to 250,000 acres and fourteen miles (21 km) of coastline, from his mother ...
... everyone who works there is dressed as a doctor (hmmm), but with a flat cap because it is British themed (obviously). We couldn’t care less, we are out on the razz!
At the bar, Noah asks to taste the beers as he's not heard of any of them. The ‘doctor’ behind the bar is very obliging but I still think it is difficult to taste test beers at a crowded bar in the middle of a world series ...
