Looks like it was a beautiful place to visit. I checked the website in November and did not notice that it was closed in December. Nice walk over to see it through the gate.

We had a private tour of the adobe and gardens led by staff from the historical society. Very interesting history of a middle class family from the mid 1800s to early 1900s who occupied this building in the center of town. Well worth the $10 and very enjoyable.

Who knew? I have lived on the Central Coast for years and never knew this was here! It's fun to discover a treasure in your own backyard. Our family visited one Friday afternoon and enjoyed the tranquil charm of the place. The gardens and landscaping are a refreshing combination of huge old trees and plantings along with newer ones with... More

Wander through the gates of the old adobe and you'll feel as though you've stepped back into early California. The adobe is in great, nearly original condition (looks like they just got a new shingled roof), and the gardens surrounding the adobe are charming, bountiful, and beautifully maintained. Some of the trees in the garden were planted by the Dallidet... More

Tranquil little garden. The train depot is very cute and worth reading the history boards. It's a small property and the house has very limited hours.

Very limited hours that it is open. Very good docent explained the history of the Dallidet family and its relationship to the city of SLO.

What a beautiful hidden gem right in the center of San Luis Obispo! We were in the gardens to attend a late afternoon early evening wedding. It is a fabulous place for a wedding or other function. The grounds are well kept and easily acessible. There were restrooms which were very clean also. It is a quaint quiet retreat if... More

I got here Sunday at 2pm and it was closed. A couple walked up and said that they have tried to visit several times, but it was always closed even during the hours it's supposed to be open. My daughters and I walked around the perimeter and were able to see parts of the garden and an old street car... More

We had an hour to kill and was glad that we found this nice little "secret garden" and re-lived the history a bit.... very quaint.

Dallidet Adobe is perhaps tricky to find. It's right in the middle of town in San Luis Obispo, but access is up "secret" streets due to a busy shopping center that was built....perhaps to hide it away! The Gardens are old and fabulous ~ a retreat from the busy outside world. Volunteers will take you through the grounds and the... More
