This beautiful home will welcome either the solo traveler or families, we are ready for you! Enjoy the deck while you relax by the chimanea, or get into the spa for total relaxation! The house has three bedrooms, and the upstairs room can also also has a queen sized bed. There is a very comfortable sofa bed in the fireplace room.

About Leslie A. McKinley
Now that my kids are grown, I would love to share my home with you. We are all set up for grandchildren, or for adults! While you are here, I can go and have some fun in this great 1956 Ford Thunderbird...
Why Leslie A. McKinley chose San Luis Obispo
This property is the perfect place to enjoy while you are in SLO County - we have wonderful vistas, toys (if you bring the family), a bbq, a park right down the street, - everything to make your stay relaxing, enjoyable, and memorable.

Wonderful in a beautiful setting
My family and I really enjoyed our stay and Leslie was a terrific host! We were able to check-in right on time and the little ones in our family spent countless hours in the toy room! We loved our stay with the beautiful lake in the background and would highly recommend this house to anyone else looking to stay in SLO!
You were wonderful guests! I am so happy that you had a good weekend, and that the children were happy - Happy Children, Happy Times! (or something like that )... But it does help when the kids are occupied, and the goal is to have the entire family enjoy their stay. The Grandchildren's Play Room is a great place for them to play while you take a breath on the deck... and enjoy some time with family! Take care.
Comfy home and the back patio is sublime
Leslie's place is a great respite. My three friends and I had a wonderful weekend. The house has a great location and is comfortable. It's a short drive to Montana De Oro, Morro Bay, Jocko's, and SLO.
The most amazing thing about Leslie's place, is the back patio. The view of Laguna Lake and its residents is hard to describe, it's so relaxing, beautiful, and, well, just sublime.
Leslie herself is a charming person and a good communicator - any issues and she will respond asap. By the way, we had no kids with us but the upstairs kid's lair is amazing.
I am so happy that you had a good weekend, and that you were able to get away and have some respite. You already know that you are welcome back anytime, and that I know how much a break is needed... Yes, my deck is a little slice of heaven on earth, I totally agree. I love it too, and love that I am able to share it with others. Take care, and know that you are welcome here any, any time!
Excellent Gathering Place with an Amazing View
Leslie's home was the perfect place for our friends to reunite for a fellow Cal Poly alumnus' wedding. Not only could we fit 10 people here, but we were able to gather outside on the amazing deck and enjoy the gorgeous view of Laguna Lake and mountains. The home was clean and all the beds were ready and made for us, including the pull out sofabed. Leslie was so accommodating and warned us that the hot tub wouldn't be available to us before we got there, which we appreciated. She left us a little welcome gift and was always reachable if we had questions. Will defiantly re-book this place when we all want to meet up again.
I am so glad that you enjoyed your visit, although I know that we were both disappointed that the spa was out of commission. It took three weeks to find the part for it, a huge flaw in the spa system! I now have a new person working on the spa and should not ever have that happen again, so sorry! And you are right, the deck is definitely the most relaxing place ever! So happy to hear that you would like to re-book, I would be most happy to have you all back, you would be most welcome to come back.
My “framily” loved the place! The view was definitely amazing. We even had some folks popped up a tent and slept on the deck. This house has everything you could ever need, from toiletries, to garbage bag, propane for the grill and more! Did I mention loads of towels and beddings that could accommodate a huge family? Thank you Leslie for letting us enjoy your home. And thank you for always being so thorough when communicating. We had so much fun! we wished we could’ve stayed a bit longer.
Loved it! loved it!
What a beautiful, clean house at SLO. Great view of the lake and mountains. Close to
downtown and surrounding area (beach cities). Leslie Mckinley home was very clean
spacious. Would recommend anyone who is interested to spend time at a home rather
than a hotel/motel. Thank you Leslie.
Mr/Mrs. Asato and family.
Our Family Get-Together at SLO Lakeside Lodge
Leslie was a wonderful hostess, and everything we needed was in her lovely home. Along with our adult disabled daughter, two of our other sons & their families joined my husband and I for some quality time, and the Lakeside Lodge was a perfect venue. We spent considerable time out on the deck which overlooked the beautiful lake and scenic hills. The four children (aged 3 - 9) had fun riding the old-fashioned cars & tricycle, the porch swing, playing ping-pong in the garage, and exploring the upstairs "kid haven," (you can tell that Leslie loves her grandchildren!), while all of the adults enjoyed the indoor & outdoor furnishings. We enjoyed yummy meals and snacks prepared on the outdoor BBQ, as well as in the well-stocked kitchen. We were able to quickly access a variety of restaurants, parks, beaches, downtown SLO, hiking trails, and even a neighborhood golf course.
Jim and I were glad to have booked the Lakeside Lodge, and Leslie's great hospitality would make us look into staying there again in the future.
This property is located in the middle of wine country - there are currently over 300 wineries in SLO County. We now also have a thriving brewery business in SLO County, brewery tours are also available. There are 8 golf courses with a 30-minute drive, beautiful beaches, Big Sur is one hour away; or drive to 1.5 hours to Santa Barbara for the day! It is all within reach from your haven in San Luis Obispo.
