Sanitarium Bed & Breakfast
Written by Samantha Schoech

Sanitarium Bed & Breakfast, San Luis Obispo, CA

From the whitewashed walls and glass-doored cabinets, it’s easy to imagine the 1800s, when rattled patients checked into this sprawling Victorian for peace and quiet. But these days, stays at what’s now the Sanitarium Bed & Breakfast are enhanced by in-room massages, organic eggs, and claw-foot metal tubs that could fit a family of four. With spare simplicity and works by local artists, the rooms create a calm not found in a typical hotel. From $190; two-night minimum; or 805/544-4124
