Pink bathrobe, anyone?

If you’ve ever been to San Luis Obispo, you probably know the storybook Madonna Inn (if not, you should check it out). What most people love about the iconic property is the tradition -- it’s virtually unchanged from when it opened 45 years ago.
But that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvements.
The hotel is in the midst of building a $3 million day spa on the property that will feature outdoor hot tubs, yoga, pilates and exercise rooms, a 30-foot waterfall and a 90-foot pool with a sloping entrance – “like walking into the ocean,” the project manager says.
Read an update on the progress here and then start planning your visit for late summer or early fall, when Madonna Springs is expected to open.

If you can’t wait that long, take a look at our story on three other spa getaways in the county, also featured in the new edition of Vintages, our revamped magazine spotlighting wineries, dining and other attractions the county has to offer. Pick one up in one of the county’s many winery tasting rooms.
