Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: I was born in Italy. Family is "Life!" That's me in the picture with my 2 grandsons---life is wonderful!! The Inn was used as a bed and breakfast for 23 years and now I offer it to your family and friends to enjoy and make many memories as I have done with thousands of guests, family, and friends throughout the years.

Why the Owner Chose Arroyo Grande, CA, USA:
A true family reunion requires that everyone stay in one home and not be spread out into 2 or 3. This property is the only one of its kind in this area that offers exactly that while also providing luxury accommodations in large suites most with private, full baths. You will not find another property in this area that can accommodate up to 30 guests in one home. Since it was built to be a bed and breakfast inn, the emphasis for the square footage was placed on the bedrooms with private, full baths and quality beds and bedding. The Dining Room and Living Room are also very spacious and accommodate up to 30 so everyone can eat together, play games, or relax and visit. The two lovely gardens are perfect for lawn games or outdoor dining. They are also hidden from the outside world and are ideal for intimate weddings. Imagine being only 2 miles from the beach and experiencing comfortable temperatures year round. Add to that a standard of cleanliness, details, and accommodations found only in professional establishments, and this property is hard to beat.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
1. One HOME with large suites with private full baths. 2. Still maintained as a luxury Inn. 3. Inspected annually by AAA and continue to be awarded 3 diamonds. 4. Centrally located and easily accessible to all the small towns and sights that make the Central Coast very desirable as a destination location. 5. 1/3-acre gardens for outdoor games, outdoor dining, and relaxation. 6. Immaculately clean. They say we should smell the roses; well, here you can actually smell the roses and the jasmine, and orange blossoms, and.....enjoy life and those you love.
