Talk about local history with the current owners, Peggy and Tom O'Malley, who were both born in Atascadero. Tom grew up next door in a house built by his father in the 1940's. Tom's first job was working in the 'Colony Orchard' at the historic home right next door. The main house was built for Harry and Minnie Peterson in 1927 by Russell Pysher, the brother-in-law of Minnie Peterson. He was also the head carpenter at the Huntington Hotel in Pasadena for most of his career. Harry was one of the first businessmen in Atascadero and Minnie was a local artist. Some of her work is now on display at this home along with paintings of local scenes painted by Tom's grandmother, mother and other local artists. Ironwork in the living room and dining room was created by Edward Trinkeller, a craftsman who worked on Hearst Castle. Peggy and Tom continue the tradition of using local craftsmen to faithfully restore, maintain and expand their home. For example, local artist Mark Greenaway created the many wayfinding signs in use around the property.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1995

We bought this property as our family home in 1995 because of its beautiful location and interesting local and personal history. We love living in Atascadero as well as being close to so many great places to explore: To the north we have; Hearst Castle - 45 min., Cambria/Cayucos - 35 min., Morro Bay - 20 min., Paso Robles - 10 min., Historic Templeton - 5 min. To the south we have; San Luis Obispo/Cal Poly - 20 min., Avila & Pismo Beaches - 30 min., Los Olivos, Buelton,Solvang - 1 hour & 15 min. We are also located about 1/2 hour from several lakes: Nacimiento, San Antonio, Santa Margarita, and Lopez. Because of our interest in California History we are pleased to be close to three of the original California Missions; San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, San Miguel de Archangel, and San Antonio de Padua.

Enjoy a peaceful hilltop with abundant wildlife. It is especially relaxing to watch the quail, deer, and squirrels.

If you would like to have a family picnic or BBQ ask us about reserving a picnic or BBQ area at no extra cost.

As a gift from us you will be treated to coffee and muffins made with fresh fruit grown on the property.

Gorgeous with birds!

My husband and our dog just spent four lovely, quiet nights in a spectacularly private setting at the guest house. We looked out upon the largest, most beautiful oak tree we have ever seen. For birders, this is a bit of heaven. Tom and Peggy have planted a wide variety of trees, shrubs, flowering plants and edibles throughout the grounds and the birds were enjoying the banquet. From the hawks and merlins overhead, to the sapsuckers and acorn woodpeckers, the California Towhees to the ever calling oak titmouse, you will delight in vast array of birdlife. What a treat!

We stayed several nights at the guest house at the Portola Inn during the summer. The guest house and surrounding property are absolutely charming. Tom is a great host -- accommodating and very friendly, and had plenty of local recommendations for us. The guest house is peaceful, restful and very private. Highly recommended.

I stayed in the guest house on this property for 6 months while I was in the area for work. I have no complaints. The house was perfect for me and my dog. It is quiet and secluded and although the owners lived on site they gave me my privacy.

My stay at the Portola Inn guest house was fabulous! It's such a cute little place and in a great location. The owners were very nice and we enjoyed talking with them about Atascadero. I would definitely stay there again.
