May Deadlines Approach For Hearst Castle Reservations And Tickets

NorCal MINIs' Hearst Castle Overnight is Saturday June 12 through Sunday, June 13, 2010. It includes a Saturday morning run down Highway 1 through Big Sur to Cambria; a night at the San Simeon Pines Seaside Resort; a tour of Hearst Castle on Sunday morning, and a run home via Highway 101 after a late lunch in Paso Robles. Sound like fun? We've made it easy to participate but space is limited.

We will meet at 8:00 a.m. in the parking lot in front of Whole Foods at 800 Del Monte Center, Monterey, CA. Bring a Picnic Lunch. We will stop at one of the State Day Use Areas in Southern Big Sur, Mill Creek or Sand Dollar Beach, for a leisurely lunch after conquering most of the Big Sur twisties.

At about 3:00 p.m. we will check-in at the San Simeon Pines Seaside Resort. We have reserved a block of their best rooms at the special rate of $120/night, not including tax (with tax $133.20). NO PETS PERMITTED. YOU MUST BOOK YOUR ROOM DIRECTLY WITH THE RESORT BY CALLING 866-927-4648 AND REFERRING TO RESERVATION NO. B0329300N BEFORE MAY 11, 2010. (More rooms may become available however, there are no guarantees once these rooms are gone. If you cancel you must do so before May 29, 2010 to avoid charges.)

We have reserved a 10:30 a.m. Hearst Castle Tour that starts with a 40 minute film and is followed by a 55 minute walking tour that covers approximately 2/3 miles and a total of 170 stairsteps. For those with accessibility issues, an specially designed tour will start at 11:20 a.m. If you will need to book the accessibility tour make sure you tell us when you pay for your reservation.
