A place to Dream...

An Artist and Couples Retreat!

On the tip of one of the most amazing and pristine peninsula’s in California, and the world! A magical place where you and your love can stroll by the bay’s quaint paths and relax on the sandy beaches on the mouth of Montana De Oro 8,000 acre preserve. This is where the Dream Cottage sits, nestled against the Questa Inlet in the middle of the Morro Bay Bird Sanctuary. 150-foot eucalyptus trees are looking down next to the Dream Cottage. The perfect blend of forest and the sea.

Wake up to the night Herons, beautiful Blue Herons, Owls, Amazing White Egrets, Red Tail Hawks, Doves, Finches and more, all singing their own songs. An amazing song that is in perfect harmony with nature, you can’t help but be filled with joy and peace. Enjoy your coffee sitting on the deck overlooking the beach and sparkling bay as the white and brown pelicans arrive and lounge on the water right in front of your eyes.

An explosion of your senses: quiet,

The catamarans, the colors of the kayaks, waiting to be swept away on the beautiful back bay of Morro Bay.

Welcome to the Dream Cottage!

Most of the proceeds from every guest staying at the Dream Cottage will be donated to Joanie Feustel for medical and living expenses.

Morro Bay Dream Cottage is in the middle of the Morro Bay's Bird Sanctuary on the back bay of Morro Bay with windy sandy beaches you can explore and meander for hours.

We have 2-single kayaks and one double that our guests can use to explore the bay. Walk 50 feet and you are in the bay and ready for an amazing experience.

Chris and Shelene believe 'life is really short and if we are able to do what we love together and help each other along the way, what a great life!

By the grace of God we were able to buy our dream cottages, and live on a half acre of land. Surrounded by water on 3 sides on a very special and unique pristine peninsula. The Dream cottage is in the southwest part of the property with its own deck, very private. Chris and Shelene live in the main house. Our mother lived in the cottage and we would not see her for several weeks at a time, so the privacy is yours to unplug and relax.

This is our ministry as a family.

We would love to share our cottage with couples who just need to relax and rejuvenate. Watching the sunset or moon rays, both reflect off the water in spectacular ways. This is the place for you to find peace. It feels like a quaint artist retreat on the south of France. Our goal is to rent the dream cottage month to month. Give us a call to find out the availability.

About Chris and Shelene and Family:

They also changed the law nationally because Shelene was not given a simple $25 Group B Strep (GBS) test at 35 weeks of pregnancy. The cure was $10 worth of penicillin at labor. They started the Jesse Cause Foundation - Saving the Babies from GBS, named after their son.

Chris and Shelene’s Goal: To get every pregnant woman in the United States tested for Group B Strep (GBS). Accomplished in 5 years on August 16, 2002, Canada and the European countries followed testing protocol. They are on a crusade to eradicate GBS.

Shelene was not tested for GBS at 35 weeks of pregnancy, and their son Jesse almost died at birth and spent 2 months in the hospital. Jesse had 4 needless brain surgeries. We are now supporting This is a very important cause, Please support them! T

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed stayed at this amazing sanctuary! Sat on the deck, used the kayaks the Dream Cottage provides and went on walks right here on this amazing ppint and the sandy paths by the bay. We went to the majestic Montana De Oro State Park right here in the middle of paradise. Had wine on the deck and watched the herons fly by on the bay. You will be refreshed and rejuvenated when you leave. Chris and Shelene are our friends and we thank them for this amazing get away!

Morro Bay Dream Cottage, on Morro Bay in the Middle of the Bird Sanctuary.
average rating of 5.0 based on 8 reviews

A charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

Please note this is not a fancy place. There is no dishwasher or washer dryer. There is no bathtub. But there is a lovely town, beautiful hiking nearby, kayaks, and much wild life. The decorations in this cottage are fantastic! We made wonderful memories - fire with s'mores on the beach at night, whale watching, and long walks at the bird sanctuary. It was more than glamping and it was super sweet!

For thirty days we were guests at the "Dream Cottage" in Los Osos, California where we painted and photographed the beauty of the natural surroundings. Located on the bay, we were blessed with beautiful weather and surrounded by wonderful people and great hosts. This was a unique experience we will never forget.

Morro Bay Dream Cottage is Paradise at it's Best!

  • 5 of 5

A Romantic, beautiful magical cottage! The kitchen has granite counters, the view from the windows are spectacular, the living room fireplace is perfect and the WIFI is great! I loved walking outside in the morning and seeing the water while I was having coffee on the tree swing...then I would walk along the bay daily for about an hour...right out the cottage door. Oh yes, don't forget the 7 amazing preserve surrounding this beautiful place. I went to Montana De Oro every day, and it was only a couple minutes to get to this majestic 8,000-acre beauty! I was in the middle of a bird preserve with water on 3 sides! Downtown Morro Bay is 8 minutes away. You will LOVE it here!

The Prettiest place on Earth! A place ro RELAX and un-plug in the middle of spectacular beauty!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED The Dream Cottage and made so many amazing memories here, that we will remember for a lifetime. There is so much to do and about 20 pristine magical places to go and explore that rivals the best places on earth! 10 of these magical places are within one minute to 15 minutes from the Cottage. If I had my choice I could of stayed at the cottage and explored the whole time, relaxing on the deck, the tree swing, drinking wine and watching the sunset on the beach which is steps from the cottage, sitting on the catamaran and soaking up the bird sanctuary that surrounds, walking the winding paths and finding out where they lead...always a beautiful place. HIGHLY Recommend the Morro Bay Dream Cottage truly a place to dream, relax, un-plug, unwind and get Happy again! The cottage is designed to look like a magazine and feel like the quaint home you always wanted!

We were blown away how easy it was to kayak and how it took us to many adventures; one kayaking to the deserted beach (Montana De Oro) which takes about 10 minutes and is in the middle of a bird sanctuary!

We absolutely LOVED the cottage! Thank you Chris and Shelene for creating this place for us to be able to be still and appreciate this beauty!
