About Brian Mann
Brian and Leslie fell in love with Baywood Park 11 years ago, when they happened upon this wonderful hidden gem. Nestled on a little peninsula jutting out into the tidal estuary at the south end of Morro Bay. Surrounded by state parks and with the sound of waves crashing in the distance, this has been our most cherished refuge and source of peace. We are so glad we can share a bit of this special place with our guests.
Brian Mann purchased this Cottage in 2003
Why Brian Mann chose Los Osos
Close, easy stroll, to the little village downtown of Baywood Park, close to the Bay on both sides. A quiet street, with wonderful neighbors.

Dreamy little cottage!
We just loved this sacred space! There’s such a great energy here and the comfiest bed! All the details and character of this cottage made our stay very magical. We will definitely stay again! The hosts were easy to communicate with and they had the cottage stocked with everything we needed for an effortless and relaxing stay.
Cozy Cottage Getaway
My husband and I attended a wedding this past weekend in San Luis Obispo. After looking at several hotel options in the SLO area, I stumbled on this little gem. For half the price of staying at your basic chain hotel, we got so much more for our money. The cottage is charming and neat as a pin. The king size bed was incredibly comfortable, and we opened the windows and the french doors to get a lovely cross breeze. The kitchen is small, but had pretty much everything we needed (the Dutch door was a nice touch)! The bathroom is a good size and has a claw foot tub!
The garden is charming with lots of privacy (even though you're in the back of the lot behind another house). We loved sitting outside on the loungers at the end of the day with a glass of wine while listening to the birds chirping away.
Pretty much perfect. I would definitely come back since I really love the area. When you park in front of the main house it doesn't look special, but don't be discouraged, the cottage in the back is a little jewel.
Showed the place to a friend who ended up staying at the Hampton Inn and she wished that she had found it first!
A perfect get-a-way location!
What a cute little cottage. Amazing how well stocked with amenities in such a small space. Owner and front house neighbor very helpful getting the stove working the first night. Thanks, Mike! Really, the only negative was the futon. Not comfortable to sit or sleep on. But I can highly recommend this darling cottage as a perfect place from which to explore the area, and to come back and relax in.
Easy to find, Brian got back to me quickly. We would stay there again. 12 miles from SLO.
The things I liked are a comfortable bed and an open light vibe. We had fun during the day and it was a warm place to come back to. The fireplace gave it a nice atmosphere and warmed the place up.
We had a fabulous time, everything was perfect - the weather was just the right temperature for hiking around the area!
If you want to just kick back and relax, it's perfect, if you want to explore one of the most beautiful areas in the world, you have a perfect home base. Great restaurants within easy walk or drive. Fresh Ocean air. Friendly people everywhere you go. Small mountain town type atmosphere right on the Bay.
