About the property

Our OutHouse is a very comfortable and architecturally pleasing two bedroom barn with full bath and gourmet kitchen.

The OutHouse was recently designed and constructed (circa 2006) to a great extent with high quality re-purposed materials. The OutHouse is very substantial, well insulated, boasts steel windows and doors.

The views and vibe are great and the property is ideally located in a rural setting between SLO and Avila Beach.

The patios, garden, bbq and outdoor shower and second 'half bath' located in our Garden Kitchen area are always appreciated by our guests...

Beautiful spot!

I loved being out in the countryside. Jim and Kay could not have been better hosts! Great suggestions on restaurants, activities, drives etc! Their place is very special.

Wonderful trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time for a girls weekend at the OutHouse! Despite the stormy weather, we were cozy with the wood burning stove and extra blankets in the house (even though it really wasn't ever very cold in the house). The beds were comfortable and so cozy, and the kitchen was wonderful. The dogs were so sweet and we loved spending time with them as well. We did have the power go out a couple times due to the storms, but Jim always checked on us and there were lanterns and candles ready in the house so we had no trouble. The setting is spectacular and we can't wait to come back!

Fantanstic Experience All Around

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property (Aka...See Camp Ranch). It was attractive to us because we had my son college basketball team in town playing a tournament and needed a large place to entertain, eat, and relax. Staying at "SEE CAMP RANCH" BARN was excellent experience from start to finish and exactly what we needed, and as we had hoped.

The property is excellent, fun, and perfect for large groups. Jim, the owner was great to work with, very helpful and attentive. Jim and Kay went way out of their way to help me prepare for dinner the first night. They picked a menu that everyone enjoyed, enough to food to feed 21 young men twice! I really don't know how I would have pulled off such a great meal without their help! The property is built with a lot of thought and talent. The boys were able to play a few games of pool and/or ping pong before the coach had them on the half court to do walk throughs. Beatrice and Stuart Little, the friendly dogs, were there to greet the myself and the boys everytime. We didn't get the chance to experience the fire pit, however it was there ready with plenty of firewood! The Barn itself is beyond amazing! The main room held us all comfortably, Plenty of seating. Beds were comfortable and rooms with spacious. We were all impressed with accomodations.

Overall I cannot recommend this property any higher! The place is beautiful, rustic yet modern and has everything you could possibly want or need.

We had amazing long weekend in this great Barn... in a great town....with great group of young men. We can't wait to come back to SEE CAMP RANCH

Thanks Jim!

All the 5 star reviews are true, and yet still can't describe how amazing this place is...

  • 5 of 5

Truly an exceptional property and location. The hosts Jim and Kay were kind and thoughtful, providing great recommendations for whatever you are interested in. To say the property is one of a kind is an understatement, the combination of seclusion, creativity, and attention to detail are unparalleled. It's a perfect location for a small group to really enjoy the area (SLO, Pismo, Paso, Avila Beach) and yet you'll be tempted to just stay and enjoy all the magic the property itself has to offer. Totally worth the cost and the experience. We're already planning when we can make a return trip to this hidden oasis.

SLO Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (13, 10 and 8 year old kids) spent two nights here and only wish we would have allotted more of the vacation time to this stop. The OutHouse is exactly as it is represented in the pictures and Jim and Kay could not have been nicer or more accommodating.

The house is secluded enough to give a great sense of privacy, while also being centrally located and a quick 15 minute drive to either the beach or downtown SLO. We certainly plan to return!
