I am a writer and photographer by trade, and have stayed at The Green Cottage on several occasions while working on projects. It is the perfect creative retreat! I love gazing out over the bay, and passing the hours nestled in its familiar embrace. I highly recommend it for those seeking solitude and nature.

Absolutely wonderful peaceful place. Like living inside a piece of art, Green Cottage is lovely in every dimension. Perfectly clean with a thoughtful assortment of dishes, cookware, books, puzzles and games. Beautiful view of Morro Bay with a resident Blue Heron. Surrounded by parks with interesting hiking trails and beaches. We will definitely return to Green Cottage.
