About the property

Centrally Located To All The Fabulous Places To Visit In Slo County

Welcome! This charming 1920's 2 bedroom 1 bath Craftsman style home is located on one acre and less than 2 miles from the heart of Atascadero.

You can travel in any direction and explore some great places in SLO County. There is Paso Robles Wine country, Paso Robles Event Center with the Mid-State Fair and Lake Nacimiento to the north, to the east there is the Carizzo Plains National Monument, to the west there is Morro Bay, Cayucos and the Pacific Ocean, to the North West there is Cambria, San Simeon including scenic Hwy 1, and to the south there is quaint Santa Margarita and Santa Margarita Lake, San Luis Obispo, Grover and Pismo Beach. San Luis Obispo County also boasts the Los Padres National Forest with plenty of hiking trails that can be accessed near Atascadero.

The Cottage was simply built in the 1920's and updated with function in mind. It is one of the original Colony homes in Atascadero. It is well suited for four people. It has a front porch with rockers that you can enjoy the evenings on...even take your meal there. There are two bedrooms; one with a queen size bed and the other with a double bed. Both have a dresser and a closet in their rooms. A full size oven and stove, microwave, dishwasher and full size refrigerator are provided in the kitchen. The bathroom is equipped with a shower/tub combination and a heater for your comfort. There is a BBQ in the back yard that is stored in the shed near the house, and a table and chairs for outdoor use. There are a number of oak trees on the property which gives the front yard a park like setting. Deer meander through the yard each evening and you might even see a turkey every now and then. Walk the 'San Clemente loop' and enjoy the diverse architecture of homes and landscaping along the route.

Interesting points of Atascadero: There is fabulous weather. The average high in the summer is 90 degrees, low is 56. The winter highs are 62 and lows are 37. The summers can be gorgeous with warm days and evenings. There is a great park and lake where you can rent paddle boats, canoes, feed the ducks or have a family gathering and rent BBQ pits. Located near the park is the Charles Paddock Zoo. Atascadero hosts many events such as wine tasting, Christmas in the Park and other holiday events each weekend in December, and a summer concert series. A great place to find out more information on Atascadero is the Atascadero Chamber of Commerce at www.atascaderochamber.org

We hope you enjoy your stay here.

About Charles and Donna Evans

Charles and I bought this house just before we got married in 1981. While we have moved for employment, this home has never been far from our minds, and we love it. Our daughter Sarah lives next door and will help you get settled or give you some great tips about the town.

Why Charles and Donna Evans chose Central Coast California

When we were engaged to be married we knew that our first order of business was to buy a home. Finding the right home proved to be hard and nothing seemed to satisfy us both. Then the realtor brought us to this little home on an acre. As we turned into the drive way and our eyes settled on the front porch, we knew we had found home.

What makes this cottage unique

While we have neighbors around us, the property has a very rural feel. There is a church across the street, so it is busy on Sunday mornings, otherwise fairly quiet during the week. The house is located on a hill. Many people walk this street for exercise and has been nicknamed the San Clemente Loop. No two houses or properties are alike, so it is interesting to walk the loop or 'block' and see the different houses and landscaping.

You know what I love about this neighborhood? First off the neighbors on either side are great (one is my daughter...of course I would say that!). The second thing I love is the way it smells, the grass especially in the summer with the oaks has an earthy fragrance that just seems to help relax me.

It is Perfect! Cute and country. Super clean and gorgeous property.

  • 5 of 5

It was an ideal sweet spot for a getaway. The cottage was fabulous, very comfortable beds, and clean linens. Great location, close to stores and way to get to the highway. A quick 30 minute ride to get to Pismo. Can't wait to go back

A little bit of history - an honest bargain

  • 4 of 5

This is a very welcoming space, conveniently located to reaching the beach or exploring inland. It is nothing fancy, but it is also well priced and sufficiently appointed. What I would say is that heed the warning about its lack of air conditioning. If it's summer and you loath heat, this may not be the right place for you. I love warm summer evenings, and to be able to sit on the porch or BBQ in the back is heaven for me on vacation.

Super nice people next door help make sure things are a-okay.

It could use a bit of inexpensive updates and a bit more/better furniture for the number of people the place holds (why the 4 stars), but honestly given that most of what you'll be doing is away from the house it's a great option.

Nice cottage, great location

  • 4 of 5

This is a cute little cottage in a nice, quiet part of Atascadero. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cookware, even had olive oil, salt and pepper, and other supplies for cooking. Washer and dryer were also a plus. Would definitely stay here again. Owners were very responsive to questions and with directions, etc.

Cute, simple cottage

  • 4 of 5

For a quick trip, this cottage was perfect. It was a short driving distance to all the wineries and downtown Paso Robles. The rooms were cozy, beds comfy, and the kitchen was spacious. The neighborhood is adorable! We felt very safe there and it was quiet. We even saw deer!
