  20. Are there apple trees? Are you an actual farm? The Apple Farm is actually not a farm, but we do have quite a few apple trees sprinkled throughout our property. In the fall, guests are encouraged to pick any apples that you would like. Our original owner liked the name Apple Farm because it evoked a nostalgic Americana feel and decided it complimented our warm hospitality and charming rooms. San Luis Obispo does have wonderful u-pick apple farms in See Canyon. We definitely recommend a visit if you are here during apple season.
