Nestled in San Luis Obispo is quite possibly the most charming establishment on planet Earth. Apple Farm Inn is the sweetest hotel that we will be recommending and visiting for years to come. Mountain views and gorgeous gardens make this luxurious hotel feel welcoming and relaxing. Rooms, gift shop, and the restaurant are uniquely decorated. Each reminds me of grandma’s guest room. Our family felt at home from the moment we stepped in the lobby.
At check in we were greeted warmly. Kids were offered hot cocoa and adults were offered coffee or a glass of wine. Have I ever mentioned how much I love hotels that give out cookies at check in? I think I have. Apple Farm Inn is one of those lovely hotels! Stamp of approval!
We were also told to make sure to join the complimentary welcome reception on the porch later that afternoon. Apple cider and wine were served along with snacks while guests mingled. Free snacks on a beautiful patio with gardens in every direction? I’m game.
Our family of five stayed comfortably in The Apple Farm Inn. There are also Trellis Court Motel Rooms, and larger Millhouse rooms. Our room in The Apple Farm Inn was on the second floor. It featured two queen beds, a pull out couch, a huge bathroom, and even a fireplace! I would HIGHLY suggest staying in the Inn itself. While the other rooms are beautiful, staying in the main house is just so inviting. I was impressed by the size of the room and yet it still felt cozy.

This kids were thrilled to play in the pool. The day we visited San Luis Obispo was the only day on our entire trip that was warm enough to swim. The pool was small but lots of fun!
