We are proud to invite you to enjoy and delight in one of our two Vintage Farmhouse's Rental Cottages both ideally nestled right in the very heart of the Edna Valley Wine Country, San Luis Obispo, Ca. We also share one of the very best wineries right here on site!

The guest cottages are loaded with charm, comfort and character not found elsewhere. Famous Suite Edna Farmhouse is a restored circa 1908 vintage farmhouse packed with charm, comfort and appeal. With two sunny exterior porches and one covered porch you are sure to see a bird or two in flight...

The newly restored and appointed DeSolina Cottage known also as the Edna Valley Bridal Suite, is the newest addition to our collection of vintage farmhouse cottages situated at the Old Edna Town site.

Separately rented, Suite Edna has solid maple hardwood floors and a large, fully equipped French Country kitchen along with a picturesque view of the MacGregor Vineyard and an antique farmhouse table that seats eight. There is one king size bed master suite, two bedrooms, one vintage bathroom with claw foot bathtub/ shower and a laundry room. It also boasts 3 beautiful porches, some with vineyard views and outdoor furniture to enjoy. Both the front and back yards are huge and breathtakingly beautiful, while also being full of blooming and fruit bearing trees. Walnuts, plums, peaches and apples surround in delight as do the overhead twinkle lights that allow for outdoor gatherings in the evening. The front yard is fully fenced in white pickets! The entire home is yours for your stay. BBQ and picnic tables on site.

The separate, freestanding DeSolina Cottage known as Edna Valley Bridal Suite is a 100 year old Cottage with solid hardwood floors, brand new kitchen which faces an expansive seasonal hay field with mountains views and plenty of sunshine and shade. The lovely travertine island seats six very comfortably is the highlight of the kitchen. The ample sized bathroom offers a full sized vintage claw foot bathtub/shower combo as well as his and her above counter sinks and hand painted antique cabinetry. The queen size bedroom is amazing with so many special touches and attention to detail...'let's dream the night away'. Both quiet, and peaceful, this bedroom has been tastefully fitted with Antique French country textiles.

Provided is BBQ and outdoor living areas with seasonal flower garden and 2 porches to sip and nibble! The side yard has its own very private outdoor bathroom complete with shower and private sunning area. An outdoor shower to enjoy after a long day at Pismo or Avila Beaches.

Both farmhouse and guest cottage sit on 2 beautiful tree laced acres in the gorgeous Edna Valley, San Luis Obispo, California next to a renowned wine tasting room with delicious deli. Minutes to both downtown San Luis Obispo, Cal Poly and many lovely beaches, golf courses, hiking trails, equestrian facilities, not to mention internationally known wineries just a hop skip and a jump from the Old Edna site, the property is ideally situated. We welcomed Sextant Winery and Gourmet DELI to our property in 2009 today they are expanding their collection and growing a lovely clientele.

The Old Edna properties are a peaceful, romantic haven tucked away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life; perfect for extended stays too, weekly, monthly both are an ideal respite for a traveler that enjoys STEWARDSHIP traveling... we’re up for anything, just ask.

For the history buff in you please note that most all the original structures still remain and many a tour has been given as we have so many things to share. The original Town site was built by the Tognazzini family in the late 1800's. Back in the day you would find the EDNA DEPOT, general mercantile, post office, dance hall and even two saloons...The DeSolina Studio Cottage renovation is the newest addition to the Old Edna Town site.

Here you will discover that there is a seasonal creek shaded by many surrounding 100 year old trees a few steps away from the Suite Edna Cottage. The original stagecoach road that linked San Luis Obispo and Pismo Beach runs through the property, known as Pismo Blvd.

When you arrive at the crossroads of Old Price Canyon and HWY 227, you are truly at the center of the Edna Valley...The HUB, the Valleys namesake where you are surrounded by vineyards filled with Chardonnay, Pinot, and Rhones.

There is always something to do on the property. Walk down Pismo Boulevard and see the creek, visit our adorable mini goats at Blue Belly Barn, pick plums, walnuts, apples and peaches from our trees, or see Kienun's tree house - a favorite sitting up high in a centuries old pepper tree.

Edna Valley is just ten minutes away from great restaurants with breathtaking ocean views, mineral hot springs, horseback riding, biking and hiking trails. It’s always relaxing staying close to what you have chosen as home. This sweet cottage awaits you. Relax under our century old trees, unwind and feel the magic that is OLD EDNA!

Keywords: Mineral Springs, Cal Poly and Beaches nearby. Two acres completely restored farm house. 10 minutes from San Luis Obispo, Cal Poly or Pismo Beach. Wine Country. Large outdoor areas for relaxing.

with so many wedding venue's such as Greengate Ranch and Vineyard, Biddle Ranch Vineyards and the Flying Caballos nearby, Old Edna a perfect place for you and your guests to stay.

About Pattea Torrence

Pattea Torrence and her husband Jeff Kocan took ownership of the two-acre town site in Edna Valley in 2000.

Pattea's interests include, Architecture, Interior design, Construction, History and Nature.

A true labor of love, 18 years, and lots of $$ they transformed and brought back to life the historic townsite including the farm house, tin building and many surrounding out buildings with charming touches and inspiring detail for design.

Pattea adores people making this chapter in her life very rewarding!

Pattea has been featured in two hard cover books as well as countless articles showing her body of interior and exterior design work.

Pattea Torrence purchased this farmhouse in 2000

Why Pattea Torrence chose San Luis Obispo

'My family has been visiting this town site since 1970's and I fell madly in love with it.'

I could not get EDNA off my mind, I just knew I was destined to live out many years here on site. My goal was to raise our son in the Country, while I worked away at the restoration of each and every building introducing him to farm-life, offering lots of animals to love. he was nearly born here on site and is now 18 years old.

He is a Hay farmer He continues to makes his momma so proud!

'My family & I hope you enjoy its beauty & charm as much as we do.'

this property is an Historic Landmark an EDNA VALLEY Icon.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The views are exceptional out of almost every widow. From vineyard views to Happy Hay planting fields, everywhere you turn you will see beautiful, picture perfect vignettes, you will also find remnants of the former Old Edna Townsite.

New to our property is a former root cellar turned wine cellar where one can share stories about their time spent in San Luis Obispo County, the Edna Valley and so on.

Christmas Bliss

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights across Christmas at this wonderfully comfortable and charming farmhouse, and although it was too cold to enjoy the porches, the indoor space was perfectly cozy whether at the kitchen table or in the living room. There is a rooster on the property and he fulfills the pre-dawn duties with diligence. It was not a problem for us but a light sleeper might find it annoying. Cooking in the farmhouse kitchen was no problem, as it was amply stocked with dishes and cookware, and the gas stove was easy to use. The home is beautifully decorated, with little surprises on every shelf. Beds are super-comfortable, with luxury linens, plenty of blankets, and more pillows than you could use. Pattea added some Christmas decor to give the house holiday spirit, which was perfectly suited to the rest of the home. Probably the most delightful vacation rental home we've ever had. Thank you to Pattea for making our stay perfect. We can't wait to come back!

Amazing Anniversary Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights at Old Edna and had the entire farmhouse all to ourselves! What beauty surrounds this beautiful old house! The grounds are well cared for, and designed for comfort and relaxation. I loved having 3 porches to enjoy while drinking our coffee, eating our dinner, and relaxing with our wine in the evenings. The inside was also just a place of rest and beauty!! Gorgeous furniture and old world charm set this place apart! I loved every aspect of Old Edna! The animals made it feel like home, the antique buildings made us wonder about the activities and people that have enjoyed this place for many many years!! What a fun history lesson we got from the owner and a new friend, Pattea. We took trips to downtown SLO and enjoyed the shops and restaurants, went whale watching in Morro Bay, and spent time in Avila Beach eating dinner while watching a beautiful sunset over the harbor. So much is so close and so easy to access. We even stopped at Hearst Castle on our way to Old Edna. I loved that this beautiful home away from home is off the beaten path and yet so centrally located to visit many fun sights easily. If you love wine, the tasting rooms are everywhere!! There is even one on site and a cute deli in one of the out buildings. Loved this place and can't wait to share it with friends and family! Thank you Pattea!! You are a special lady!

A magical farmhouse experience!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Old Edna. Pattea has created a charming and magical farmhouse experience. The beds are so comfortable and the kitchen is well-stocked with all kinds of tools for making homemade meals. The entire home is well decorated and very clean. Our kids, ages 6 and 9, loved roaming around the property. There were chickens and goats to feed, as well as a very friendly turkey named, Leonard. If you haven't tried Sextant wines, don't miss your chance to pop into their tasting room... just steps from the front door of this house. I almost am afraid to say anything else because we don't want to compete for a reservation with anyone. We HIGHLY recommend this wonderful home!!!

Unique, fun place to stay in SLO!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three weeks at Old Edna this summer and LOVED every minute of it. My children (aged 12,10,6) fed the goats every morning and evening and chased the chickens all around the yard. The house is full of little nooks where you can disappear by yourself without leaving the property. The outside reading cottage is a great place to relax with a book and a glass of wine. Pattea was an amazing host - she was always around when we needed something, but never in the way. Some days I felt like a house guest and not a paying customer! Another bathroom in the main house would be helpful, but in light of all the wonderful reasons to stay at Old Edna, this certainly isn't a justifiable reason to stay away!!!

Fantastic! A special memory for our son's wedding!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a memorable place to stay for 4 people to enjoy during the event's of our son's wedding. It was so much fun, filled with charm and old fashioned hopitality! The owner is fantastic in every way. We loved our time spent here and highly recommend it to anyone! I can't say enough positive things. This is run the same way I would run a vacation rental, as a particular person, that is saying a lot! Great place to enjoy special events with friends or family!

great spot for Cal Poly families

  • 5 of 5

This farmhouse cottage was so comfy and meticulously decorated. Mom, dad and our two teen daughters had plenty of space to relax between tours of Cal Poly and hikes in the hills. Pattea, the creator of this homey cottage, was the highlight of our visit. She's super friendly and is a talented artist as she conceives, decorates and maintains this lovely spot on the planet. Imagine looking out over a white picket fence, smelling flowers blooming, seeing the misty hills and watching the grapevines send out their first leaves of the season. Truly paradise.

The kitchen was an awesome sunny gathering spot, fully equipped with appliances, utensils and dinnerware. The beds were comfy as was the living room couch.

Aside from being convenient to Cal Poly, the cottage is near to the beaches with Pismo being the closest. I think it was a great value and a super worthwhile respite destination for our family's spring break. Stay at Suite Old Edna. You'll love it.
