The Heart of the Central Coast - California

Welcome!!!!  We are located by Highway 101 for easy access and between two major cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco on the Central Coast.

Did you know that Atascadero means “mudhole”?  Atascadero is a Spanish name, and it means a muddy place.  We are not muddy; we are friendly and clean.  We are located in some amazing beautiful, rolling hills area of the Central Coast. Atascadero was originally home to the Salinan Indian tribe.

The first civic building in Atascadero, The Printery, had the first rotogravure presses west of Chicago. Lewis then published the Atascadero News newspaper and the Illustrated Review, a photo/news magazine. The centerpiece of Lewis' planned community was an Italian Renaissance-style building, which was the home to Atascadero City Hall and the Museum until it was damaged in the 2003 earthquake. Atascadero was built between 1914 and 1918 with bricks made from local clay, this unique and beautiful building has become one of California's Historical Landmarks (No. 958). Atascadero was incorporated in 1979. Today, with nearly 28,000 residents, Atascadero is the third-largest city in San Luis Obispo County. 

Many of the very principles that E.G. Lewis envisioned for his "utopian city" are ensured through the city's general plan, which includes preservation of open space, protection of trees and hillsides, the keeping of domestic animals, and large lot sizes. It was Mr. Lewis who first had the vision in which he foresaw the future of Atascadero as a creative, rural community.

The City offers many recreational possibilities such as our Downtown and Sunken Gardens area, golf, scenic roads and trails, shopping, restaurants, and the Atascadero Lake Park and Zoo facilities. Accommodations are available to include numerous Motels, Bed and Breakfast Inns, and the Carlton Hotel described by the editors of the Tribune as the "jewel" of the Central Coast.

We are close to all entertainments in the county – Mid-State Fair, Hearst Castle, Pismo Beach, Paso Robles Wine Country, Lights of Sensorio, Santa Margarita Lake and Nacimiento Lake.  All within 30-40 minutes’ drive through the country rolling hills.  We have an RV Rest Stop for you to enjoy these entertainments throughout the year and we take reservations.  

Please browse our website, we also encourage suggestions to improve our Lodge.
