Interaction with guests
We believe the Green Cottage On Morro Bay provides you with a peaceful ambience -- one where you feel like you are visiting your favorite aunt's very special beach cottage, and she's given you the key while she's away sailing in the south seas. We do not intrude on your escape, rather are nearby to assist in any way we can if you need something, and to answer questions.

We are happy to provide detailed information (ahead of time) of our favorite restaurants, wineries, hiking trails, things to do and places to see. That way you can do all of your research before you get here, if you want. All you have to do is ask.

My husband and I have been to Green Cottage many times over the years. This past summer we spent 3 weeks there, and now we find ourselves returning next week for yet another stay! The cottage has truly become our home-away-from-home. We are drawn there by the peace and tranquility of the bay, as well as the endless variety of...

Management response:

We love our return guests. We get to know them and what they like and find interesting and make suggestions of interesting places to go and things to see. We've recommended a real wild west, 100+-year old saloon and the Hearst Castle, the Performing Arts Center and the Port San Luis Lighthouse, and Farmers Market too. We love to hear...

We loved our Mothers Day stay at the Cottage. This cottage is located near a estuary. Sitting on the deck in the morning and watching the tide and birds is so tranquil. Pandora has thought of everything to make the stay perfect. There are great books, movies, the kitchen that has everything a cook would need and more. The location...

Management response:

We put ourselves in the shoes of our guests, and try to provide everything they might need, whether it's oyster knives or trail hiking books. And, if there is anything they do need, we're seconds away and can provide almost anything. Although, I have to admit, we do not have individual marrow forks or a Versailles food pusher. We do...

Quaint, charming and well-appointed, the Green Cottage is the perfect escape for relaxing, rejuvenating and reflecting. This quiet, peaceful place feels like a world of its own. It is my home away from home!

Management response:

Our guests return for many reasons: a home-base for exploring, a quiet respite for introspection, or a place away from day-to-day busyness. We have hosted famous writers, photographers and musicians and songwriters. The Green Cottage is credited for inspiring two new pieces of music by Eric Tingstad. It's true, there is something very special about the Cottage, and it inspires...

About the neighbourhood
A Perfect Hideaway – Come and stay awhile

Halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, quietly sitting between the Pacific Ocean and the rolling hillsides of open ranchland is the small town of Los Osos. It’s nestled along the southern tidal estuary of Morro Bay, on the smog-free coast of Central California. Los Osos is a short 20-minute drive from San Luis Obispo through lush agricultural and cattle grazing countryside, a short 5-mile drive from Morro Bay (home of the well-known Morro Rock) and is just a few hours drive from major metropolitan areas.

The community is easily reached from Highway 101 on Los Osos Valley Road or from Highway 1 on South Bay Boulevard. With a population of nearly 15,000 the town is off the beaten tourist tract and is surrounded by thousands of acres of...

It's easy. Take Highway 101. The Green Cottage is halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, quietly sitting between the Pacific Ocean and the rolling hillsides of open ranchland, in the small town of Los Osos. Nestled along the southern tidal estuary of Morro Bay, I sit on the smog-free coast of Central California.
