The Seaside Motel in Country Home Magazine

country-homeThe famous Country Home magazine went Antiquing. They picked up their bags and traveled to the Central Coast of California in search of the best junk – read antiques – in the west. “Here’s where they went, what they saw, and what they found…why there? The junk is plentiful and very cool—a great start! But the people win your heart. They’re part cowboy, part hippie, part surfer, and all laid-back. There’s no big-city attitude here. And then there’s the amazing scenery. How many places can you go and enjoy the mountains, swim in the ocean, visit garden and artist communities, take in the tumbleweed town, and tour wine country — all in one weekend? Oh, and the weather’s great too! Click here to read more reviews.

Rick with Reese, Rebecca with Rooney

Rick and I have been so blessed this past year with TWO granddaughters! Reese Violet was born on the 4th of July to our youngest son Rocky, and his wife Ali. Reese is such a go-getter! Already learning to stand, at 9 months! Rooney Jane followed seven weeks later, born on August 19th to our eldest son Rusty and his wife Renée. We love to hear her laugh and see her grow! We are overjoyed having these two adorable little girls in our family and just love spoiling them to pieces! more

Customer Reviews

“We have needed a restful vacation like never before and this stay at your motel was beyond anything we could have dreamed of. The sound of the ocean lulled us to sleep, though the comfy beds and beautiful room didn’t hurt. Your motel is beautifully decorated, your garden phenomenal and your friendly hospitality THE BEST! Thank you, thank you, thank you, for allowing us to stay in such a fabulous place.”
