Resort Overview

From late October through February, thousands of migrating Monarch butterflies cluster in the limbs of the Monterey pines and Eucalyptus trees near Pismo Beach. Like these beautiful insects, you’ll discover it’s a wonderful place to spend some time.

They holiday here, undoubtedly, for the quintessential California experience. This means surfing, of course, as well as horseback riding along the tide line or strolling the length of the Pismo Beach Pier. From Pismo Beach, it’s easy to tour wineries, go on a whale-watching tour, take flight in a biplane or head 55 miles north (a one-hour drive) to Hearst Castle, the palatial home of the late publisher William Randolph Hearst. If you make this trip, just make sure that your ride is a convertible and the Beach Boys are playing on the sound system. This is California at its classic best.

Helpful Hints
  • Please plan 13 months in advance for best availability. This is a small resort and it does fill up quickly.
  • Monarch butterflies migrate to this area every year. The four month monarch season begins late October and lasts through February. You can view this spectacular event by taking the butterfly trail which is only a quarter mile from the resort.
