One night here is worth a week elsewhere! Quiet, peaceful. Fabulous lunch in the winery. breakfast included the next morning was delicous and lots to eat! The owner himself checked us in -- early to boot! The sheets were so luxurious I ordered some as soon as I got home. The 10 nozzles shower was too hi tech for me but it was a treat! I think I'm clean! A two hour walk in the vineyard was so delightful-- birds a plenty, tweeting for all they were worth! Such a lovely time. Don't miss the wine tastings which are included-- fabulous zinfandel, best I've ever had. Could have had one more chair in the room is my only suggestion.
We just spent 2 beautiful fall days in the Mourvedre Room at the Inn to celebrate my birthday. Ana gave us a warm welcome and introduced us to the winery and the Inn. Heather and all the staff were friendly and provided us with excellent service. They all stopped by to see if we needed anything during our stay.The wine in our room and the daily hors d'oevres platter was a special treat, quite enough for dinner one night. The Inn is now one our favorite special places to spend time in the Paso wine country.
We were headed north for a wedding and decided to break up the trip with a visit to Paso Robles. We're not wine experts but we do enjoy exploring wineries and we love to stay at bed and breakfasts. The Opolo Inn got good reviews so we thought we'd give it a try. The minute we turned down the long driveway through the vineyards, we knew we had made the right choice. It's more of a working winery than an inn which made it that much more delightful. The three guest rooms are tucked away on a hill overlooking the estate. The building is surrounded by vineyards, gardens and even a chicken coop. Fresh eggs for breakfast! We wandered into the tasting room late afternoon and discovered tastings were complimentary during our stay. That's a nice touch. Next, we took a hike up to a hilltop to watch the sunset. It was simply beautiful. We returned to our room to open one of the two complimentary bottles of wine we received. Add to that an appetizer tray that was so large it served as our dinner. We enjoyed the wine, cheese and crackers while sitting on the deck listening to the cicadas. The deck is shared with the other two rooms but still private enough. Before breakfast, we made ourselves a cappuccino and took our morning walk through the vineyards. It was so tranquil. Breakfast was fresh-made, delicious and plentiful. We were so impressed with our surroundings that I forgot to take pictures of the room or breakfast. ;) The photos on the Opolo Inn website are accurate. The room was nicely decorated and very comfortable. I'd like to come back in the winter so we could use the fireplace! Our stopover was short but we will definitely be back and plan to bring friends!
Charming place with lots of character! The proprietors were very helpful and friendly. The room was kind of tucked away in the eaves. It was quiet and comfortable. We were there during unusually hot weather so no a/c was a problem but this was not the fault of the Inn or the owners. Breakfast and happy hour were very nicely done. Would recommend and stay again.
Sundance BnB was the perfect stop for our honeymoon! The location was perfect - nestled among the rolling hills of Paso Robles, outside of the hustle and bustle. Our room was absolutely gorgeous with all of the bells and whistles that we could imagine. Lastly, the food and service at Sundance was remarkable. Every morning we were treated to a gourmet breakfast served by friendly staff. Sundance is a must-stay if you're travelling in the Paso area!
This place was the perfect romantic getaway that we were looking for! We highly recommend it to all couples! We stayed in the Indulgence suite and it was a gem. The owner and the chef were very friendly and entertaining. They made us feel very welcome and at home. Our only piece of advice would be not to get on the bed unless you're done for the night. It's so comfortable that it was hard to get out of. My husband and I had a great 1st year anniversary here and we'll definitely be back!
My wife and I have been coming to Paso Robles for the last 15 years and always stay at the same place. This year we wanted to try a bed and breakfast and found one that was completely off the beaten path it was secluded it was elegant and it was quiet. The grounds were absolutely beautiful. The decorations of the rooms and the breakfast made by Chef Alma was amazing.
Beautiful house on a ridge with outstanding view that will take your breath away.our suite was lovely with a small private outdoor patio leading to the charming grounds gazebo, pool and other seating areas.the staff were friendly, helpful and made you feel very well taken care off. Jorden made great breakfasts and appetizers which were done in a very surprising presentation. They not only tasted great but were cleverly presented. She was so charming we really enjoyed talking to her. Shirley was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and recommended wineries and restaurants. She has a wealth of knowledge and was willing to share it with us. We really appreciated her help. A great place to destress, unwind, be romantic and leave the real world behind. Great for special occasions as well. We will be back!
The upstairs suite was just the right size for two and was very cozy. The stocked mini fridge was a great idea that had a great variety of essentials. This was key since the nearest restaurant or market was a good 15-20 minutes away. It was very clean and had all the comforts you would expect. It is a vary quiet and secluded spot, very peaceful. The bed was soft, and a nice sitting chair would have been great. Overall we will be back. This place feels like you are in your own private estate in the middle of wine country.
The Inn is lovely and serene. Good value. The winery and the vineyards in walking distance was great. Spectacular grass area with vineyard view; a romantic spot for catching a sunset with a bottle wine and appetizers compliments of the Inn. It was a great anniversary celebration all expectations were meet. We enjoyed every breakfast. We had engaging and pleasant interactions with all the staff. For some reason could not give "Outstanding" for any ratings.
We recently stayed in the Decadance Suite. My goodness the details were looked after right down to the doorknobs. The in-room hot tub and fire place didn't get much use because it was summer but the walk-in shower seemed to have endless hot water. Coffee and breakfast were prepared for us. The pool was nice and partially secluded from view of the house. All in all, it was a good break from the demands of daily life. I look forward to returning to that or another of their properties.
We stayed upstairs in Apartment 1. It's spacious, has a comfortable bed, lots of water and snacks in the kitchen (no stove or kettle) and overall a really a great place for two people, and a dog if you have one. Our only negative was that my spouse is 6"2' and because it's an attic, the roof was pitched and he had to watch his head. We had lovely people staying below us who we could hear during our stay. And you share the outdoor area, but it's so nice it wasn't a problem. Overall I guess it wasn't as private as we would have liked but it was better than any hotel room in town. We also visited the winery which was fantastic!!! (No dining on site but there are barbecues)
We stayed for second time. Another great stay. This time the weather was excellent and the use of the pool was a must. Its great when the owner is there. We seem to get more than we could ever expect and its greatly appreciated. We always manage to get a dinner out of the deal thanks to the owner, even though Saturday night is normally the only night they serve a dinner. Breakfast is always good, we've become friends with those who own and work there. This trip we were offered a two for one deal that we couldn't pass up. We will be back. Thanks again Lane Although I would still like to see Starbucks coffee there in the morning lol
I recently stayed here with my boyfriend during a trip up the California coast. The views were amazing, the staff were very friendly, and the rooms were perfect. Can't recommend this place enough, and we will definitely be back. We did not take advantage of the dinner, but may definitely do so in the future. Enjoy!
Very private cottages nestled underneath a canopy of oaks next to a running creek surrounded by some of the finest vineyards Paso Robles has to offer. The sounds of nature surround you. The interior has all the comforts you could ask for. A perfect setting for your favorite bottle of wine.
What a wonderful experience. We went to sleep looking at the stars out our window and awakened to a beautiful view of vineyards and hillsides with a songbird serenade. The weather was nice, so we chose to dine outdoors. The food was delicious and well presented and you could not ask for a prettier setting. The attention to details in every aspect was amazing and Alma and Neil were wonderful hosts We are already recommending Sundance to friends.
The venue is lovely and well cared for. The property is on a smallish lot, but very pretty. The size wasn't important, since there is so much to see and do (and eat!) in easy walking distance, The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable, with plenty of tips and ideas for things to see and places to eat. The breakfast was great and some of the dishes were very unique. As to value, I've paid more for a lot less. Very satisfied.
When my husband and I decided to marry, we chose Creekside Bed and Breakfast because it was convenient to our children and their families, on in LA, one in Sonoma, and because we would have the entire property to ourselves.The rain that weekend in January wasn't the best weather for our photos shoot, but the warmth and hospitality we found at Creekside was beyond helpful! They recommended both our photographer - who was wonderful - and our cake baker - who produced a delicious and incredibly beautiful cake, making life much easier for us, based in Arizona. The breakfasts were delectable and the added touches of chocolate-dipped strawberries, which were completely unexpected, made out weekend that much more special. I recommend Creekside without hesitation!
The Dunning Family took great care to see to our comfort and satisfaction. We loved the house (Suite 2) and the location was very convenient to the local wineries we wanted to visit, as well as the towns of Paso Robles and Templeton where we had very nice dinners. We would definitely return here and also recommend it to others.
When we showed up where we had reservations someplace else and found that it no longer existed, we were stuck "homeless" on crowded wine festival weekend! Lane and his family came to our rescue in a big way, even though he/they had nothing whatsoever to do with the snafu. Purely out of kindness, compassion, and generosity of spirit, he found a way to accommodate us. He took a situation that could have been a nightmare and gave us an experience that was far far better than our original plan would have been. I cant wait to stay at High Ridge Manor again. Of course the views are extraordinary, but the customer services was, too, as was the easy comfort of eating and swimming and wine-tasting. We were escorted to the wineries we requested so we could enjoy ourselves responsibly, got to shoot some pool in the game room and munch on popcorn fresh-made in an old fashioned stand up machine. All of the above and the tasteful decor, grounds and family warmth made this an experience we will never forget.
This place was beautiful , peaceful , and comfortable , very homey too. I had a great nights rest so the bed was pretty comfortable . The fridge was stocked with stuff for breakfast and snacks, plenty of coffee and wine also ! Gorgeous grounds to take a walk and about a 2 mile ride away from the main road . A real private get a way
I can't begin to express how much we enjoyed our stay at Opolo! From start to finish, it was spectacular. The staff was so friendly and we enjoyed chatting with everyone we met. I honestly felt like we were among friends and family. The property was perfect! I wish I could take all my morning walks around a vineyard, 7,000 steps never felt so good. The breakfast each morning was beyond any expectation I had and our evening cheese plates were just as wonderful. I love to garden and seeing the newly planted gardens near the Inn made me feel so happy and the "bird nerd" in me loved all the different birds that visit the property each day. My husband and I are already trying to figure out when our next trip to the Inn at Opolo will be. Oh and the coffee machine in the dinning area is amazing! That was the best "machine" coffee I have ever had!!
First time wine tasting. High Ridge Manor was located near many great wineries. The room was outstanding as well as the breakfast. We couldn't stop taking selfies with the incredible views behind us. Would recommend to friends.
My husband & I spent our 4 year Wedding Anniversary here & it could not have been more perfect. When we arrived, we were immediately made to feel welcome. We received a tour of our room & the house. Our room was beautiful, we stayed in the Decadence Suite. From our private entrance with a glorious view to the fireplace to the Jacuzzi Tub, down to the flowers & the Happy Anniversary Card. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud surrounded by fluffy pillows, and the clean crisp sheets. The hospitality was on point. We truly felt like royalty. The food was mouth watering, Bree really knows her way around the kitchen. And the entertainment! It could not have been funnier. It was so much fun just sitting in the common area, drinking wine and having great conversation with the other guests & the staff. The memories we made this weekend will be with us forever. Alex, Bree & Shayne are amazing. This whole weekend was worth every penny. We will definitely be returning!
