The Apple Farm &The Fabulous Fairmont at Christmas

4 Days, December 23rd - 26th Sold Out / Waitlist

Join us for our annual “Christmas away from home” tour. Perhaps you’ve done the cooking (and the cleaning) for more years than you can count. Or perhaps your family gatherings aren’t always the best example of holiday spirit? Or you just would prefer to spend the holiday in the company of friends. No matter the reason, we welcome you to our Christmas family.
Travel by SuperCoach III to San Luis Obispo, where you’ll spend two nights at the popular Apple Farm Inn. It’s just the most comfortable place you’ll ever stay in, and has the distinction of being the most popular accommodation in our 35 year history! Cozy and comfortable. A welcome wine and cheese hour greats you.
On Christmas Eve, enjoy some selected sights in and around San Luis Obispo (details to be announced soon). Attend Christmas Eve services at the historic mission (optional). On Christmas Day, head north to San Jose, where we enjoy a holiday feast at the Fairmont Hotel, which also provides our luxurious accommodations for the night. Need some additional holiday cheer? The lights and sounds of Christmas are right outside your front door.
On the 26th, enjoy an included breakfast before boarding the Capital Corridor train for the ride back home, arriving in early afternoon.
