Join our flock for a weekend getaway! Nestled in the scenic Laguna Lake area of SLO and populated by five free-roaming chickens, you'll find a peaceful, newly remodeled retro oasis for two! 5 min from downtown - 10 min from beach - 10 min from Edna Valley wine tasting - walk to Laguna Lake and Irish Hills Open Space trail and iconic Madonna Inn.
Cool and cozy retro style studio, garden, and patio area for hanging out and having coffee. Here, our chickens Dolly, Frenchie, Belinda, Beyonce, and Loretta roam free about the grounds. Ba-kawk!
This unit is best for two people, because it's--well--cozy! Be aware that there is not much space for lounging or additional guests. Although the space is on the smaller side, it features lots of light and charm.
What's "rustic" mean? Our feathered friends free-range about the property, so you will experience a clucking good time. This unit is located in our back garden, where tomatoes grow and bees buzz. The sound of chickens will rouse you in the morning (earplugs are provided by the bed if needed). We do our best to clean up any "chicken drippings" between guests, but this is a rural and rustic environment with gravel, grass, and dirt, so this is not the best environment for your stiletto heels. You get the idea!
Mini kitchenette area stocked with dishes,
microwave, sink, mini fridge, coffee maker and coffee.
Rustic hen-speckled patio area for having coffee and enjoying the SLO life! Brand new bathroom with shower (please bring your own toiletries). Comfy full sized bed. Wi-Fi. Private entrance with outside light to help you get in and out at night in the dark (note: It gets quite dark here, so we also provide a flashlight).
Interaction with guests
We love to say hi and give traveling advice! Your hosts are a downtown small business owner and a freelance writer who writes for the local alt weekly paper and the annual VISIT SLO Guide, so you are in luck! We have the local love on tap.

Pleased to meet you! I am a freelance food and wine writer and musician from sunny San Luis Obispo, California. My husband, Reid, owns a comic book store downtown SLO (Dr. Cain's Comics) and also enjoys playing music and petting all kinds of dogs. We are odd ducks: We love classic country, punk and bluegrass, raising chickens, vintage shopping, and gardening. We are big on art and good sushi. Wherever we go, we make a point to try the best local restaurants, bars, record shops and thrift stores. We love suggestions for what to do and see. As homeowners and hosts, we understand how important it is to follow the house rules. We are respectful, fun-loving and very appreciative of a good night's sleep! When hosting guests at our "Hen House" we always love to give great local recommendations for coffee, offbeat attractions, or just where to find a quality bite. Please feel free to contact us, and see you soon!
