This bed and breakfast is absolutely wonderful. The vineyard really adds to the pleasure of the stay. The scenery is to die for and the host is warm and friendly. The breakfast was fresh and different every morning. We really enjoyed the hot coffee, fresh fruit, assortment of just out of the oven muffins, and delicious main dish. We had a very pleasant stay and would most definitely stay here again.
The price was extremely good for the quality. Beautiful gardens, nice large room with lovely antiques and comfy bed. I really enjoyed the central air conditioning. And it is so quiet at night. Nice to have use of the living room and TV room too. The collection of carriages is fantastic. And Larry let us bring 3 friends over for breakfast at a small charge -- that was nice. I am so happy we found it.
We have stayed here for the past two years in the Victoria Suite. The property is 100 acres of grape vines and olive trees. You are free to roam around at your leisure. The rooms are lovely, the breakfasts are very good, and the hosts are very accomodating. I would definitely recommend this B&B.
Our room was on top of a hill overlooking a lovely valley in Templeton. The sunsets were amazing, only to be outdone by the sunrise. As the sun came up, the colors of the vineyard came alive. We walked the property often, but at this time of day you can hear the cows and other livestock. The loudest noise belonged to the humming birds who would wiz by as they feasted on the flowers surrounding the house. Larry escorted us on a tour of the vineyard and olive trees onsite, which was very informative. Kristi was a gracious hostess, and we would certainly stay at Carriage Vineards again.
