Great soothing stay on the waterfront!
Reviewed 1 month ago

This is a lovely family owned business right on quiet waterfront at Baywood Park/Los Osos. There is a great restaurant adjoining called the Blue Heron and breakfast and lunch can be had at the Back Bay cafe. A voucher is provided for a delicious breakfast there. The gardens are lovely to walk in with hummingbirds and Monarchs in season.
There is a small wine reception every afternoon also, and there are some dog friendly rooms. Many great places to eat and stroll are nearby. The Sweet Springs reserve is a short walk away.
Pictures are of views from the room and boardwalk that runs a few feet from your doorstep!
Great stay!

Barbara and I stayed in the ADA room in the main building with the most wonderous view of the water and experience of the tides. Loved the early morning fog, birds and sounds. A bonus are the local residents who walk the coastal access trail and fill you in on everything, natural and human history. Bathroom and space in room, top notch. View of bay from the bed was perfect. Service and staff worked well--just pleasant all the way around.

Quaint & Cozy Inn

This is the second time we have visited Los Osos and stayed at the Back Bay Inn, and our visit this time was just as nice as the first. This small Inn has wonderful grounds right on the water, great for walking, relaxing for the sunset, and bird watching. Both times we stayed in a room that had a kitchen which was great for storage (traveling with kiddos) of extra food items. Room stay comes with breakfast at the Back Bay Café which is delicious - try the frittata if they have it! - and they do a fun little wine reception in the afternoon with snacks. The rooms are a bit dated, but still comfy and spacious. Highly recommend for a quiet stay off the touristy path of Hwy 1.

Found this lovely bed and breakfast place while moving out our son for the semester from Cal Poly SLO. Needed to find a place to get out of the heat and Los Osos and Morro Bay are 10-15 degrees cooler and very close to SLO. Our room faced the bay and is situated near the Baywood State Park. Room was comfy. Had a great dinner at the Blue Heron which is on the premises

Fantastic location for family destination wedding!

We loved the Back Bay Inn for our niece's wedding! The setting was beautiful. We had been to Morro Bay before, but never just south to Los Osos. We had a large 2nd floor room, but saw many other rooms also, because it was all family and friends staying there for the weekend. The view was gorgeous, as was all the landscaping of the spacious grounds. Breakfast was included from the menu at the little cafe that was open to the public. The staff were extremely accommodating of our wedding group. The large reception tent for 120 fit perfectly on the lawn. The manager told us that we were the nicest, best-behaved wedding party that they have ever hosted! When the reception ended at 10 pm, a large group walked around the corner to a great little bar "The Merrimaker", where a live band was playing for more dancing. We would stay there again, just the 2 of us. It's very close to Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo. Great place for long walks, especially at low tide.
