The Apple Farm is a “highly popular” San Luis Obispo hotel, says Fodor’s, just off Highway 101 and a 15-minute drive from several Edna Valley wineries. Clad in painted clapboard and with a working mill in the courtyard, the farmhouse is reminiscent of a cute B&B, but with its own gift shop and a bevy of facilities.
The on-site bakery and restaurant has an impressive breakfast menu, filled with the likes of blueberry pancakes, steel-cut oatmeal and local 'cowboy' sausage with eggs. During the rest of the day, all-American dishes (club sandwiches, cobb salads and pot roasts) are in plentiful supply. Make sure you try the signature Hot Apple Dumpling. Guests are welcome to bring their own bottle of wine to dinner, and there is no corkage fee if that bottle is from the San Luis Obispo area. There is also a daily wine reception (3.30pm-5pm), featuring local wines and appetisers.
In the vast surrounding gardens, there is a heated pool and Jacuzzi, which are open all year round. The spa has a range of more traditional treatments, plus more signature massages using apple cider Shea butter and pumpkin.
Rooms are filled with country décor, antique furniture and floral fabrics, and all have gas fireplaces and either four-poster or brass-framed beds. Fresh flowers and a welcome basket of apple juice and local chocolates are included as standard.
There is a facility fee of $4 per room, per night, which covers Wi-Fi access, daily drinks in the lobby, two bottles of water in the room, daily newspaper, daily cookies in reception and Apple Farm Label Wines at the daily wine reception.
