“Local history in a peaceful setting”

Dallidet Adobe and Gardens
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Who knew? I have lived on the Central Coast for years and never knew this was here! It's fun to discover a treasure in your own backyard. Our family visited one Friday afternoon and enjoyed the tranquil charm of the place. The gardens and landscaping are a refreshing combination of huge old trees and plantings along with newer ones with modern walkways that are easy to navigate. The house itself was only partially open due to some renovations being done. Our docent was friendly and informative, helping to bring the history of the place alive. The entrance we used is tucked at the end of the street as you walk through a parking lot... but keep going! Kudos to the people who work hard to make this a beautiful retreat from modern life.

Wander through the gates of the old adobe and you'll feel as though you've stepped back into early California.

The adobe is in great, nearly original condition (looks like they just got a new shingled roof), and the gardens surrounding the adobe are charming, bountiful, and beautifully maintained. Some of the trees in the garden were planted by the Dallidet family over a hundred years ago.

Make a reservation for a docent led tour. Wander the pathways, and enjoy the sweet scents of a garden in bloom.

Tranquil little garden. The train depot is very cute and worth reading the history boards. It's a small property and the house has very limited hours.

Very limited hours that it is open. Very good docent explained the history of the Dallidet family and its relationship to the city of SLO.

What a beautiful hidden gem right in the center of San Luis Obispo! We were in the gardens to attend a late afternoon early evening wedding. It is a fabulous place for a wedding or other function. The grounds are well kept and easily acessible. There were restrooms which were very clean also. It is a quaint quiet retreat if you want to relax for an hour or so.
