Location + Surroundings
Glampers will relish their stay at this English Tudor style chateau in the heart of California. Not far from the village of Chorro the chateau is located on a 400-acre ranch 2.3 miles from Highway 1. While feeling far away far from San Luis Obispo, the property is close to the historic mission town is only a ten-minute drive away. The beautiful chateau is a mile or so up a partly dirt but well-maintained country road and feels like a home, not a rental. Read More

The ranch is great for simple pleasures, and guests will never be short of things to do. Glampers can hike around the property looking for wildlife, read outside on the lounge chairs or gather around the fire pit as the sun sets.
The library is stocked with an eclectic collection of books, and the chateau also offers a CD player and music library, games, a pool table, DVD players, and a video library. Outside, guests can make use of bicycles, a deck, and outdoor grill.
Off-site, glampers can explore the Santa Lucia foothills or take a drive along the beautiful pristine coastline. Glampers can follow the Whale Trail and watch out for humpback whales breaching from one of the six Whale Trail lookouts found between Oceano and San Simeon. Sea lions, otters and other species of marine life are also easily spotted in the area.
A must-see for glampers in the area is Hearst Castle near San Simeon. Built by early 20th Century media mogul William Randolph Hearst, the castle was the haunt of many famous names from Charlie Chaplin to Cary Grant, the Marx Brothers to Winston Churchill. The castle was the inspiration for Charles Foster Kanes Xanadu in the movie Citizen Kane.
Golfing glampers can practice their swing at Avila Beach Golf Resort which has a great set of 18 holes, right in front of the Pacific Ocean while non-golfers can enjoy the views from the beach at Montana de Oro State Park, also a hiking and biking hot spot.
The region also offers cinemas, water parks, festivals, museums, a marina, restaurants and a zoo.
