OutHouse...Forest Bathing in an extremely cool barn

Bedrooms 2
Half Baths1
Space 139 m²
Property type barn

About the property

Our OutHouse is a very comfortable and architecturally pleasing two bedroom barn with full bath and gourmet kitchen.

The OutHouse was recently designed and constructed (circa 2006) to a great extent with high quality re-purposed materials. The OutHouse is very substantial, well insulated, boasts steel windows and doors.

The views and vibe are great and the property is ideally located in a rural setting between SLO and Avila Beach.

The patios, garden, bbq and outdoor shower and second 'half bath' located in our Garden Kitchen area are always appreciated by our guests...

Very uncommon property, loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the quiet, open land that this guest home sits on. We loved the owners, and their detail to the very cool finish of this rustic, unique. My wife and kids loved it. We also loved the outdoor shower that was like a warm water fall, and we loved the pool table and ping pong and the sweet dogs that hung around and protected us from the wild turkeys and deer :)

We would love to come back again. Such a great trip. Everything was also very clean and well described by the notes and guest book. Very well done.

Great spot, quiet and relaxing....

What a beautiful job the Millers have done with this property and the accommodations! Friendly and discreet, they were completely attentive to our every want and whim. The Outhouse was charming and functional, fun and cozy. I love what Jim has done with all the building and grounds. It was perfect for our needs while we attended a wedding in the area and then took some extra days to play around in the area. We loved it and we will be back!

Simply put, it was perfect for us! So unique and such fun!

  • 5 of 5

We chose the OutHouse at first glance as it totally suited our occasion to be in San Luis Obispo - our son's wedding. His wedding was at the Spreafico Farm, reception in the barn, so finding a barn for us to enjoy with our friends from Ireland was just a perfect match.

Our hosts could not have been more friendly and welcoming - willing to chat with us about the unique character of their property, which is a sight to see in and of itself. We are all enamored with the outdoor shower, and we have each resolved to add one to our property at home! So lovely to shower under the stars and the oaks!

The kitchen was a treat to work in, and there was everything we needed. The total dark and quiet at night (also quiet during the day) was so restful, which was a lovely antidote to the activity of the wedding!

We had some lively games of pool and table tennis and enjoyed an amazing dinner cooking on the outdoor BBQ. And we all slept very, very well!!

We had the pleasure of renting the OutHouse for the Cal Poly graduation weekend. From the quiet location to the great amenities to being greeted each morning by four-legged friends Bernice and Stuart Little, this place was perfect for us. It stayed comfortable even with exceptionally hot weather. Highly recommended.
