Vines, views, and art will make your stay at this unique modern vineyard home as memorable as the fabulous Central Coast wines. The exciting visual character of the home's architecture playfully borrows from the areas agricultural roots. Seemingly endless windows and an open floor plan provide commanding views. Comfortable modern furnishings, outstanding local artists work (available for sale), and vineyard cuisine invite you to stay.

Had a fantastic time staying at Christopher Joyce. Loved the modern aesthetic of the place, and Joyce was a wonderful hostess. Other reviewers were right in comparing her to being like an aunt you go visit who takes great care of you. She was warm and friendly and put out an amazing spread each night for happy hour, and her breakfasts were to die for. Loved her attention to detail from everything to the plates to the decor. Loved the quiet being out in the country away from all the noise. Pro-tip, if you don't love dogs, don't stay here. She has two cute little ones who like to patrol the vineyards in the morning with the neighbor dogs and the comforter on our bed had dog hair on it.

Joyce is the ultimate host. The hype is true, her breakfasts are to die for. The room was gorgeous, happy hour was just lovely, she's dog friendly (WONDERFUL!) and we will be back!

We recently stayed at the Christopher Joyce Vineyard and Inn. Celebrating our anniversary Joyce (the inn keeper) was very thoughtful. When we arrived she already had flowers in our room and invited us to appetizers and wine that evening. We decided to join her and the other guests. She even got out a bottle of sparkling wine and taught my husband how to saber it. ( Opening the bottle with a large kitchen knife by breaking the top of the bottle off cork still in the glass) Totally cool since we had never witnessed on before. Looking back I wish I had recorded it. She also was great an accommodating our dairy food allergy. Except for the very bright morning sun (no black out curtains), it was a wonderful time. Thank you Joyce, for a trip we will never forget.

Our 2 night stay at Christopher Joyce was a terrific experience. Joyce was a gracious hostess, great cook, and helpful guide. We would strongly recommend staying here for a restful visit to the area.

We got together with old friends at the Inn (three couples). Joyce welcomed us the day we arrived with tasty hors d'oeuvres on the back deck, overlooking fields of grapevines bathed in afternoon light. The Inn is spacious and modern with interesting art and expansive views. Our room had a beautifully appointed shower clad in stone with dual shower heads. There was also a deep, Japanese-style soaking tub we never got around to using. Everything Joyce prepared for us food-wise was excellent. Her breakfasts were substantial, and set us up for our long days of wine-tasting. The wines she paired with food were also quite good. Joyce is flexible and unflappable: we originally asked her to make us dinner one day but as our plans changed during the day, we simple called her and worked out alternate plans. The Inn is a great place to relax and decompress.

The perfect blend of luxury (at non-luxury prices), friendly interaction, local art, and fantastic views. As a local winegrower, Joyce has the inside scoop on notable wineries, places to visit, and great restaurants. Her spreads of breakfast and evening hors d'oeuvres are full-on gourmet experiences. Highly, highly recommend a stay here - then come again and bring friends!

Joyce was a gracious hostess. The meals were artistically presented, creative and super delicious! The views from the Inn were to die for including the sunrise and sunset. Awesome stay in the the Christopher Joyce Vineyard Inn--so peaceful and relaxing.

My husband and I stayed here in the upstairs Loft for 2 nights. This was our first time at a B&B, and this won't be our last, we will be back! It's actually a plus that this Inn is about a 10 minute drive to downtown, because you can get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. In the evening, we had great appetizers, cheese, and wine. The beautiful sun sets over to the west of the Inn and you can sit out on the deck to watch it. In the morning, the sunrise is even more spectacular over the east hills. At night you can see the moon and the city lights to the east. Tips: 1. Head back for appetizers in the afternoon after wine tasting, this was a highlight of our evening. One night we just went into town for Thai food take out because we weren't too hungry and wanted to enjoy a night in. When we checked in, we were welcomed by Joyce's fresh homemade appetizers, so come hungry! 2. Bring shoes you don't mind walking in the dirt/vineyards so you can enjoy a morning walk around Joyce's property. 3. The breakfast was gourmet and a foodie's delight. It was better than breakfast outside! 4. The upstairs Loft is the biggest room and I liked that it had it's own entrance, but all the rooms are special and have unique features to them. Enjoy your stay, you won't be disappointed!
