Oh, the possibilities! Bridge Creek Inn and Garden Street Inn

Hello readers!

Everything I review or talk about on this blog doesn’t mean I’ve been there, but it definitely means I want to. So with that in mind, here are a few places I’m hoping to check out in the coming year:

Bridge Creek Inn Bed and Breakfast
San Luis Obispo, CA

Hubby and I almost stayed here one time for the annual fall harvest celebration in Edna Valley. Unfortunately our finances were very tight that year and we wound up cancelling the trip. But I have every intention of sticking to my next trip that includes this beautiful b&b. One of the proprietors, Sally Krueger, is a sweet and caring woman who charmed me right off the bat. Just in talking with her over the phone, I could tell that she would create a warm and relaxing stay for us. She asked if we were allergic to any foods, what our favorite foods were, and to please let her know if she could do anything to make our stay more comfortable. I think I could learn a lot from her!

One of the other aspects of Bridge Creek Inn that I like is the fact that there are only 2 rooms. Just 2! The more expensive room, The Golden Gate, ranges from $175 to $195 per night and features a king bed and a private sauna. The other room, Arroyo Seco, ranges from $150 to $165 per night and features a queen bed with garden views.

From the Bridge Creek Inn website: Nestled near the vineyards of the Edna Valley, just ten minutes from historic San Luis Obispo, the Bridge Creek Inn offers pastoral views of the Santa Lucia Mountains and a spectacular nightly show of uncountable stars.

Our custom-designed bed and breakfast is located on 10 acres of gently rolling hills with a seasonal stream. Here, you can retreat from the pressures of daily life by relaxing in our outdoor spa, visiting over twenty wineries close at hand, or exploring the scenic California coast.

Did I mention their refreshment hour featuring local wines? I’m ready to go! How about you?

Garden Street Inn
San Luis Obispo, CA

Hubby and I are generally the types who like to stay in small towns that resemble villages. Since we live in the chaos that is the Los Angeles area, we look forward to peace and quiet. The Garden Street Inn offers this and more while the location is just minutes from all that the city of San Luis Obispo has to offer. They also offer a wide variety of special packages to make your stay even more special.

There are a wide variety of rooms to choose from and prices range from $174 to $234, again something for every price range. From cozy and comfy standard rooms to lavish suites, there is surely something that will fit your tastes and budget. Each room is guaranteed to have a queen size bed, an armoire, and private baths. Their main suite offers a king size bed, which we just might have to splurge on next time we visit!

From the Garden Street Inn website: Classic decor reflects Victorian charm in the 9 guest rooms and 4 suites of this San Luis Obispo bed and breakfast inn – all with private baths, appointed with antiques, fireplaces or jacuzzi tubs and historical, cultural and personal memorabilia. The staff at the inn prepares a delicious breakfast each morning which is served in the McCaffrey Morning Room surrounded by original stained-glass windows.

Spacious outside decks and the well-stocked Goldtree Library add to our guest’s enjoyment. Evening receptions featuring local wines and hors d’oeuvres is served to lodging guests from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Looking for a b&b with a hint of privacy but still want that personal touch? The Garden Street Inn surely seems to be the kind of place to satisfy your needs. My bags are packed. Are yours?

SLO tip:  The Garden Street Inn is also pet friendly!
