About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to Cuesta Cottage! We hope you enjoy all that the Central Coast has to offer while staying in our cozy, relaxing house. Los Osos is off the beaten path: quiet and peaceful with access to it all.

From Cuesta Cottage you can walk to the edge of Morro Bay's water, just one half block away. Bring lawn chairs out for the sunset or sit at the picnic bench among the local's kayaks and sail boats.

Watch pelicans and terns dive right in front of you at low tide or enjoy the fullness of the bay at high tide. The cottage has a private front patio with a chiminea to warm and romance you and a side patio with a gas barbecue to grill on. Because it is so tranquil at night, you can hear the ocean.

Other short walks from the cottage include the Sea Pines Golf Course and its clubhouse cafe (2 blocks away), Cuesta-by-the-Sea boat inlet (2 blocks in the other direction), Monarch Grove where monarch butterflies overwinter (10 minutes), the Sweet Springs Nature Preserve boardwalk on the bay (15 minutes), and Baywood Park Pier with its restaurants and espresso bars (a 30 minute walk). Los Osos Elfin Forest also has boardwalks with nice lookouts just above the bay.

Montana de Oro State Park is 3 miles south as you drive past eucalyptus groves and spectacular views. Beaches, sand dunes, hikes, and wildlife abound there. The town of Morro Bay, its Natural History Museum, Morro Rock, the embarcadero, and the beach are a short 5 minute drive north.

Look for sea otters and seals in the bay by the rock and embarcadero. The aquarium and seashell shop are fun stops. Hearst Castle and the elephant seals sanctuary at Piedras Blancas is about 30 minutes north, and for wine lovers, there are many wineries to the east. Nearby Cal Poly San Luis Obispo offers a well-rounded performing arts program, and the town of San Luis Obispo is just beyond it.

There are many organic vegetable stands on Los Osos Valley Road right before you drive into town, so stock up on freshly picked fruits and vegetables and enjoy your stay!
