Escape to The Kaleidoscope Inn & Gardens, a beautifully restored Romantic 1887 bed & breakfast Victorian home with an ocean-close location on the California Central Coast – midway between LA and San Francisco in Nipomo, CA. The inn is located just off Highway 101, near acclaimed Jocko’s Steak House, Pismo Beach, Edna Valley wineries, San Luis Obispo, Solvang, Hearst Castle, and several Missions. Imagine yourself relaxing in the spacious living room, reading in the welcoming library, savoring a cup of tea on the spacious wrap-around veranda, experiencing serenity while strolling the acre of lush gardens, practicing croquet on the lawn, or sharing a private candle-lit dinner for two in one of the gazebos.
We offer all of this…and much more! Weddings, teas, showers, and other Special Events are graciously hosted in a number of locations in our acre of charming gardens. Weddings of up to 300 guests are accepted. Coordination services available in-house. In addition to Hearst Castle, local activities include just about anything one could wish for….world class golf, numerous wineries, spas, hot springs, miles of pristine beaches, horseback riding (in the hills or on the beach!), famous Nipomo dunes, kayaking, sailing, whale watching, deep sea fishing, lakes, bird & butterfly watching, abundant hiking (including the Los Padres National Forest and Montana de Oro State Park), road or mountain biking, antiquing, scenic drives, Missions, Hearst Castle, and a wide variety of superb restaurants.
