Winecoastcounty is excited to announce the launch of their Stewardship Travel Program. Stewardship Travel embodies ecotourism’s qualities of appreciation for place and culture, adventure, enjoyment and learning, but takes one step further by also providing clear opportunities to participate in regional conservation and preservation. Stewardship Travel is about adding a bit of “doing good and feeling good” to your vacation.
Interested in “doing good and feeling good” during your next vacation to Avila Beach and Avila Lighthouse Suites? We’ve partnered with the Avila Beach Tourism Alliance and WineCoastCountry for a new Stewardship Cleanup Kit opportunity.
During your next stay at Avila Lighthouse Suites ask a front desk associate for a cleanup kit which includes a collection bag, gloves and Marin Debris checklist. When you spend a hour or two collecting marine debris and litter with friends, family, or on your own, you help protect wildlife and make a difference during your visit. After your stewardship outing, return your checklist to the Avila Lighthouse Suites Front Desk. You’ll receive an Avila Beach Appreciation Stewardship Tote Bag, one per checklist.

The Paso Robles Inn would like to invite you to Un’WINE’d in winery row in one of their 18 newly renovated Winery Themed Deluxe Mineral Spa Rooms. This unique partnership with local wineries creates an intimate wine country experience starting at check-in. Relax in-room next to a cozy fireplace or enjoy the private hot springs mineral spa tub. Each room infuses various winery characteristics into the décor, ambiance and amenities.
Some of the unique decorative items include a real grape vine in the Ancient Peaks Winery room, to wine barrel chairs in the DAOU room, to beautiful murals over the spa tubs and glass lamps filled with corks. Other touches include wine barrel art, sculptures, coat racks and photography from the vineyards.
In addition to the enhanced wine décor, each guest receives a complimentary glass of their namesake rooms wine in the Inn’s Steakhouse Restaurant or Lounge, as well as a complimentary wine tasting at the vineyard.
From small, family-owned wineries, to nationally known brands, the wineries chosen by Paso Robles Inn are unique and worth a visit. The concept is an opportunity to strengthen the partnerships already in place with the Inn, and to broaden exposure to each winery partner in a new way.
Take a stroll through Winery Row with the Paso Robles Inn’s Winery Partners including: Ancient Peaks Winery, Broken Earth Winery, Castoro Cellars, DAOU Vineyards, Donati Family Estate Winery, Eberle Winery, Hope Family Wines, J. Lohr Winery & Vineyards, Le Vigne Winery, Peachy Canyon, Rio Seco Winery, Robert Hall Winery, Sextant Wines, Tables Creek Vineyards, Tobin James Cellars and Vina Robles are among the winery partners. Because Paso Robles has a growing craft beer movement, the Inn also selected a brewing partner for the concept; Firestone Walker Brewing Company.

We believe no family member should be left behind during your visit to the Central Coast, and this includes four-legged travel companions! That’s why we happily offer dog-friendly accommodations for you and Fido at four of our hotels; Pismo Lighthouse Suites, Paso Robles Inn, BEST WESTERN PLUS Shore Cliff Lodge and BEST WESTERN PLUS Shelter Cove Lodge. We strive to provide a comfortable stay for all guests and provide furry friends with dog beds, treats and bowls as well as a designated play area and pet relief area. As part of our dog policy we collect a $20-$25 nightly dog fee with the intention of donating 10% of the pet fee to the Woods Humane Society.
The Woods Humane Society is an animal sheltering, adoption and welfare nonprofit organization based in San Luis Obispo that annually places over 1,100 dogs and cats into loving homes. With the dedicated staff, hardworking volunteers and financial contributions of the community the Woods Humane Society has a 97% adoption rate for all the animals who temporarily call their state-of-the-art facility home.
We are excited to announce that from the 2012 pet fees collected from our hotels we were able to donate $4000 to the Woods Humane Society. Our donation will support the ongoing care and sheltering of homeless animals in San Luis Obispo. Woods Humane Society may use the donation to purchase supplies such as food, new toys, and comfortable dog beds, cover costs for micro chipping and spay and neutering, which each animal receives before they are adopted. With our annual donation to the Woods Humane Society we feel a sense of satisfaction knowing we are helping local homeless animals find their permanent home.

Every year, a group of Cal Poly Engineering Students begin the PolyHouse project as part of a Project Management course developed for the Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering Department at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. PolyHouse renovates the home of a local family struggling with issues related to disabilities. The project gives students an opportunity to learn project planning and management, help those in need and gain exposure to the benefits of community service.
This spring PolyHouse hopes to help three families in the San Luis Obispo community. The Pismo Lighthouse Suites, a Martin Resorts hotel, is proud to provide overnight accommodations for one of the families during their home renovations. The family the Pismo Lighthouse Suites is hosting has two disabled sons. One son is able to move around the house in his motorized wheelchair while the other son has no muscle function and relies on other people pushing him around in his wheelchair. The PolyHouse team plans to install a lift to transport one son from his bed into his wheelchair and possible around the house. In addition, they will attempt to make the house more wheelchair friendly by widening halls and doorways and installing hardwood floors.
To read more about the other families and for more information please visit: http://polyhouse.org/new/home/index.php
The success of completing the PolyHouse project is very dependent on acquiring donations from the community. To contribute to PolyHouse click here.
