Central Coast (CA)
An elegant winery estate house with attentive innkeepers.
Located just off the main highway, which makes it convenient for day trips around the Paso Robles wine country, this distinguished white country house is striking. On semi-private grounds shaded by palm and oak trees, there are just nine guest rooms and suites on this oversized property. Each comes with its own gas fireplace and balcony, satellite TV, plush spa robes and nightly turndown service. There's a full range of accommodations, from simple rooms with queen-sized cherry wood sleigh beds to the ambitious 1000-square-foot Diosa Suite, which has its own private rooftop deck and exterior staircase entrance. All achieve a richly decorative modern style. The innkeepers pride themselves on providing 24-hour customer service. Full hot breakfasts are made to order by a chef, with a menu of entrees placed in your room the night before. Complimentary wine and appetizers are served every afternoon, and an evening dessert is also included in the rates. There are gardens for relaxing on sunny days and a fireplace in the elegant common lounge. Public tastings are available daily at the winery just across the road.
