Escape the fast-paced world in the Green Cottage on Morro Bay, a very private Cottage. The Cottage is quiet, cozy and sits next to the water on Morro Bay, California. It is a peaceful and romantic guest hideaway for lovers … lovers of nature, art, thought, books, wine, adventure, discovery, solitude and soul, but especially for those who love and love to nurture themselves. There are no jangling phones, fax machines, blaring TVs, traffic sounds or other intrusions on your retreat.

The Cottage says:

“I have a tale to tell, my very own…won’t you come inside awhile and help me sing my song? I may be just a small beach cottage, but step into my entry and you’ll be welcomed by an eclectic mixture of art and antiques collected by my family over the years and lovingly displayed to create a romantic and intimate environment to inspire you during your stay.'

'I sit on a bird sanctuary on the rural Central Coast of California, where I enjoy unobstructed 280 degree views of the Bay and mountains.

'I offer you the opportunity to immerse yourself in nature, in romance, here in 'the middle kingdom' as National Geographic once called my region of California. I am your natural escape, your refuge and your home base for exploring all that is around me and all that is within you.

'Come and stay a spell with me. Read one of my intriguing books filled with short stories or watch one of my many DVDs. Make tea or cook a gourmet meal in my fully equipped kitchen to enjoy by candlelight or under the stars on my kitchen’s deck. Snuggle into my sea foam green king-size bed.

'Curl up with a good book in my corner reading chair, peruse original art on my walls, and discover my handmade baskets and carvings from South America, the South Seas, and local Native Americans. Enjoy a glass of award-winning Central Coast wine as you sit quietly on my deck and watch the pelicans, herons, snowy plovers and peregrine falcons while the sun slips silently into the horizon.

'I have seen and heard many things in my three score and ten years. Like all places where people dwell, there is a spirit here that has been shaped by the personalities, conversations, and temperament of those who have spent time here. I have been occupied by travelers, adventurers, writers, painters, photographers, romantics and naturalists…and by my owners’ four generations of artists and lovers of life. Their presence lingers in the air and invites you to both partake and contribute your own essence to my evolving character.' --- The Green Cottage on Morro Bay

About Pandora Nash-Karner

The Cottage has been in our family for two generations. We have lived on the bay for over three decades and love it, and love to share it with others. The Cottage was originally built to shelter the duck hunters and fishermen who were attracted here, but it was soon bought in the 1950's by our parents and was used as a residence while they built their dream home next door. The Cottage has been our family's guesthouse since then and we've just made it available as a vacation rental. The charm as a family retreat has been retained through the complete refurbishing received in 2009. We have designed the Cottage to provide our guests with the perfect opportunity to immerse themselves in the Central Coast experience. We are not the Best Western -- just the opposite. What our guests won't find here are ringing phones, blaring TV or fax machines -- all by design, although we do provide wireless internet service and a 38' HDTV for watching DVDs, plus over 300 DVDs to choose from. We want the cottage to provide guests with the ability to ESCAPE the fast-paced world. We've tried to provide everything we can think of to make our guests feel pampered and comfortable.

Pandora Nash-Karner purchased this cottage in 1950

Why Pandora Nash-Karner chose Los Osos

This has been a private guest house for our family for over 6 decades. When it is not used by the family, it is available for visitors.

What makes this cottage unique

The bay is part of the National Estuary Program, as well as a designated bird sanctuary. There are many places nearby to view birds, including a private dock. Morro Bay is an important stopover on the Pacific Flyway and winter home to numerous bird species. The north coast area of San Luis Obispo County is a haven for artists, wine and food aficionados, water sports enthusiasts, antique collectors, hikers, mountain bikers, equestrians, and people who appreciate quiet, undiscovered get-away locations. When the lure of open spaces calls you, follow winding country roads to award-winning vineyards for wine tasting, or to grassy hilltops for a picnic overlooking the Pacific. Beautiful Hearst Castle is just 35-minutes away, and beyond that is the splendor of the Big Sur coastline.

San Luis Obispo's initials -- SLO -- precisely describes the speed a visitor should use in examining the area's treasures and pleasures. Go to fast and you'll miss of the off-the beaten path venues hidden back in the hills and canyons like the Pozo Saloon, See Canyon apple farms, Tibor Canyon organic olive oil Ranch or the charming town of Harmony, with a population of 15.

Quite by the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

This trip was my Mothers Day gift to myself. What a wonderful gift it was. Perfect weather! Warm Hospitality! My companion guest was mother nature. My spirt was rejuvenated by watching the tide changes and the birds. Quite and peaceful. If you need to decompress from life, this is the place.

Thank you for a wonderful time.

Owner's Response: What a great way to treat yourself is a weekend away at the Green Cottage On Morro Bay. "Knitting Lady" came down to knit and ended up touring the county, and knitted too. She even got me started knitting. Who knows, maybe I'll do an afghan for the Cottage.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We visited in mid May to 50-60 weather. The green cottage exceeded our expectations. The place was clean with beautiful views and many small amenities. Take advantage of the kitchen - it's a great complement to the local fish market, roadside stands and farmers markets.

Location was close to the beach, San Luis Obispo and state parks. We particularly enjoyed visiting local olive farms.

Hosts are extremely helpful.

Owner's Response: These first time visitors were up and out exploring the bounty of our county early each morning. The Cottage has 3 notebooks filled with information, articles, brochures and trail maps describing the myriad of adventure opportunities in San Luis Obispo County. There are menus and winery information too. The hard part is, there usually isn't enough time for our guests to see it all, that's why so many of our guests return time and time again. Come see why.

Tranquil getaway in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This is a unique little cottage set in a beautiful, quiet place right next to the estuary. My husband and I rented it to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We loved just sitting on the deck overlooking the water but we also enjoyed the surrounding area. We kayaked right in front of the cottage and spent hours hiking in Montana de Oro State Park which is one of the most spectacular parks I've visited. It's very close by car and you can even walk there from the cottage. The cottage is very comfortable, well equipped, clean and you can see it is loved by the owners. We really loved the peace and beauty of this place and hope to go back.

Owner's Response: Kayaking right off the beach in front of the Cottage is a great way to see the bay and the estuary. Bring your kayaks, canoes and/or stand up paddle boards, or rent them locally. The voice at the water's edge, speaks to the soul. Come visit. Stay a while...and listen.

Little Green Cottage a Gem

  • 5 of 5

Once again I returned to this relaxing hide-a-away. The place is immaculate and the views spectacular. Come here to relax or go on a hike or just watch nature. The town of Bayview is a sleepy town that time seems to have left alone and it is just a short walk. I'll be back.

Owner's Response: This couple knows our area very well, and nailed it with the description of "sleepy little town that time left alone." So true! And Baywood is a lovely 15 minute walk from the Cottage, going right by a wonderful nature preserve called "Sweetsprings." We think that's why so many people love it here, and return again and again.

The most magical cottage on the entire coast

  • 5 of 5

I have traveled the world; North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and the islands in between, yet I can honestly say that no place I have ever stayed has been so magical as the Little Green Cottage on Morrow bay. It is hard to imagine a place that is simultaneously more relaxing, adventurous, artful, and inviting as the Little Green Cottage. Unbelievable, REALY, Unbelievable.

Owner's Response: High praise indeed from this well-traveled couple. It is really so very nice to have return guests. We get to know them and assist them in pointing out the sites, adventures, restaurants, wineries, and natural areas we know they'll like. There is so much to do here, the only problem we have is guests complain they don't have enough time to enjoy all the special places in San Luis Obispo County.

Repeat Guest

  • 5 of 5

I have started to loose count how many times I have enjoyed the Green Cottage. Definitely my go to place to stay when I need to be in the area whether for work or play. This time I arrived by train, a fun and relaxing way to travel from Orange County.

I joined friends for an Art show in SLO, Dinner in Cambria and a movie premier at Hearst Castle. There is so much to do in and around Morro Bay.

The cottage is everything it says it is and more....simple put it is PERFECTION. A must stay on any travelers bucket list.

I have already booked my next visit in October!
