I recently hosted a bachelorette weekend at the Silver Lining Cottage, and could not have been happier with our choice. Before we even arrived, Larry and Elkie felt like old friends, based on their excellent pre-arrival communication. We were warmly received upon arrival, complete with fresh eggs from the chickens waiting in our fridge for the next morning.
We awoke to a gorgeous garden and stellar views, and found the location to be perfection (I lived in SLO for ten years and didn't know about this hidden gem)--ideally centered between the beach cities and downtown SLO, and even closer to Avila Valley.
This will be my go-to recommendation for groups planning weekends in SLO moving forward, perfect for girls weekends, two-family get togethers pretty much anyone looking for a serene setting, plenty of space, and friendly people.
This was our very first time to use Airbnb & our experience was extremely enjoyable. Elkie & Larry were there to meet & give us a tour & a bottle of wine. The Cottage has a beautiful view of the valley & is close to both SLO & Pismo Beach (ask about the bakery with the cinnamon rolls). The Cottage is far more than you expect. It's cheerful, comfortable, & cozy. It has two large bedrooms, a large barbecue, several outside areas to enjoy your morning coffee, & table tennis & air hockey tables. If you like fresh eggs there are eight hens that provide daily. I guarantee that we will be going back very soon. Ed & Karen T
Better than I expected! Lovely cottage home. Larry and Elkie are incredibly friendly and thoughtful hosts. They set up the place with fun games (ping pong, foosball, and air hockey) and little touches that made our stay even more pleasant, like juice and eggs in the fridge. The property has a great view of the hills around it, and a beautiful garden outside. Bring your camera.
We had such a wonderful time at Elkie and Larry's cottage! The property is GORGEOUS, comfortable, and relaxing. It had everything we needed for the weekend, and the fresh eggs from the chicken coup were awesome. It was the perfect location - feels far away and secluded, but was only a 10 minute drive to downtown, tasting rooms, shopping, etc. Both of them were so sweet and friendly. I would definitely stay here again when visiting SLO.
We had a lovely stay at Silver Linings Cottage. I think its ideal for families and I have three teenagers who definitely enjoyed the ping pong table, air hockey and the other amenities. The view is lovely from the second floor and having the upstairs to ourselves and the downstairs for the teens worked out great. We also enjoyed the chickens and their fresh eggs every morning. Elkie and Larry were away so we missed meeting them, but they were very responsive with phone and texting and all our needs were met. Highly recommend.
SilverLining is an amazing place to stay! We were there recently for a wine tasting outing, and the location of the cottage could not be more perfect. We were a couple of exits from downtown SLO, Pismo beach and lots of wineries. Our 4 year old thoroghly enjoyed all the game tables and loved the chicken coop outside the cottage. Oh and the breathtaking view! Will definitely stay there again if we ever are lucky enough to go visit the region again! Thanks Elkie and Larry for taking such good care of your guests!
A beautiful house close to town and the beach. It was in the perfect location with the most amazing view. I definitely recommend and would stay there again... Such a wonderful experience!
The silver lining cottage was a wonderful place to stay. Elkie and Larry were very welcoming and had everything we needed. It is a beautiful setting, in a convenient location and a great place for our family to get together at. We hope to return soon!
Our stay at SilverLining Cottage was spectacular. Elkie was friendly, responsive, and helpful in communicating prior to our arrival. She responded almost immediately to our request to stay, provided a list of things to do in the area/a restaurant guide, and checked in with us to make sure we had directions and let us know we could check in early if desired. The house and property were lovely, complete with a gorgeous view, a brand new chicken coop with fresh eggs, and some new pinot noir vines. We were even lucky enough to be there to catch a big, orange full moon rise directly in front of the upstairs balcony--was quite the site. We were also very impressed by Elkie and Larry's thoughtfulness and hospitality. They came by to welcome us with freshly baked cookies, some ice and fresh OJ, yogurts for breakfast, and had provided some local wine for us to enjoy. During our stay we slept very comfortably and were well-situated to check out some of the best the central coast has to offer (including wine tasting in Paso Robles, an oyster and music festival Morro Bay, a day hike at Montana de Oro, and some culinary adventures in downtown SLO). When not out and about, we enjoyed playing cards, darts, air hockey, and ping pong at the house. I would highly recommend SilverLining Cottage to anyone interested in planning a visit to the area.
What a fantastic place to stay! Great location and wonderful hosts that think of every nice touch to add to the place. We had a great time with hiking, beaches and town nearby. Nice just to stay and enjoy the wonderful view and setting of the cottage as well.
