This is the coolest place to stay! It was so comfortable to stay in and it was so private! We drove up to deer on the property and woke up to wild turkeys outside. It was the coolest thing to see!! Property was stocked with food for breakfast and snacks, way better than a hotel room!! They did such a great job! Found the place from a friend that stayed and will ONLY stay here when I go to Paso Robles now!!!!

Gorgeous, Peaceful Getaway!

Amazing Vineyard views accompanied by comfortable accommodations in the quietest part of Paso Robles I have ever been in. My husband and I stayed here over 4th of July weekend and it was so lovely and quiet - we were in heaven! We've recommended this spot to all of our friends and family.

Great Place!

Quiet, Peaceful and Authentic

This quaint guest house is simple and charming, tastefully appointed, stocked with all you need and provides a quiet, peaceful and most importantly, an authentic experience staying in the midst of the vineyards. You can hear the silence! If you prefer to be off the beaten path just enough to enjoy the serenity of the area, this place is great.

We like Dunning Ranch

My husband and I recently stayed at Dunning Ranch in the one bedroom suite, it was perfect for us. The Ranch is off the beaten path, so you can expect peace and quiet. The place is cute, amenities are all there, as well complimentary snacks. We would recommend Dunning Ranch to friends, and return ourselves.

Storybook cottage

4.2 on May 12, 2014

If you want a peaceful, storybook cottage setting, quiet and away from it all, this is the perfect place. Beautiful big oak trees shade nature trails, deer wandering around. We loved the coziness of Suite 1. Our host, Christine, even supplied us with cream instead of 1/2 and 1/2 for our coffee, at my request! They aim to please.

Private retreat close to all the best Paso wineries

4.2 on April 09, 2014

Dunning Ranch Guest Suites met and exceeded all our expectations. It was so quiet and private - we literally had the place to ourselves (except for the sweet black cat who slept on the front porch wicker chair each day). The historic house was delightful - it still retains it's charming, traditional "farmhouse" architecture of the 1930's, although the interior has been modernized to include every convenience we needed. Although the location is slightly "off the beaten path" it is still within 5-10 minutes of all the best wineries and only 10-15 minutes at most from downtown Paso Robles and Templeton. We tried two of the recommended restaurants, McPhee's and Artisan, and they both lived up to their reputation. Great getaway adult weekend!

Beautiful and secluded

The cottage had a beautiful setting. We woke up to deer outside our window! Loved it!

Wonderful, Peaceful Retreat

We have stayed many times in both suite 1 and in suite 2. The first time you arrive it's a little hard to find, but that's part of the charm. Once you're there, it's wonderfully private, quiet and serene. Christine, the inkeeper, is friendly and courteous. She takes wonderful care of the place. The freindly cat, Charlie, is the icing on the cake.

Lovely getaway in Paso Robles!

Dunning Ranch Guest Suites provided us with the perfect stay for our first trip to Paso Robles this past weekend. It was a little drive up the hill, but the seclusion of the property made it all the more relaxing. We woke up to a family of deer roaming by the yard. Bedding and furnishings in the suite were comfortable and made it easy for us to feel at home away from home. Christine, the innkeeper, was very nice and gave us lots of tips on where to go and coupons for free wine tastings. My girlfriend and I stayed in suite 1. We had a fun romantic weekend and I felt real proud of myself for booking this place.
