Susan O'Reilly is a native of Florida. Trained as an accountant, her last position before running Alta Cresta Orchard full time was as a Senior Applications Consultant with SAP America. Her specialty was assisting corporations with the implementation of SAP's Consolidation Accounting Software and in SEC Reporting.
Ron Sanders originally from Alabama then Florida worked for 40 years as an environmental engineer. He most recently was employed by CertainTeed Corporation as “Western Environmental Manager” with responsibility for assuring environmental compliance for CertainTeed’s manufacturing facilities in the western US and Canada. In July 2009 he retired to devote all his energies to tending to the growing of olives and production of Alta Cresta Orchard’s award winning extra virgin olive oils.
Both Susan and Ron are avid gardeners. Knowing that gardening would always be a part of their lives and anticipating a welcomed change in their hectic lifestyle as retirement approached (influenced a bit by the reality show 'The Good Life' admits Susan) they began to look for a lower stress rural environment with an ideal outdoor climate. The Florida humidity can be oppressive during a large part of the year, so they began a search for a place with a drier Mediterranean-type climate. Their search quickly focused upon California. Paso Robles Wine Country, not well known at the time, was a chance discovery during an impromptu visit to the area in 2002. They wanted a place that was rural but still easy access to a city. Paso Robles fit the bill. They located an ideal property, but the seller was not quite ready to sell at the time. They contacted a local realtor and asked her to watch the property and contact them when it came on the market. They got the call from the realtor several months later and Alta Cresta Orchard was born.
Susan O'Reilly purchased this cottage in 2005
Located high on a crest and overlooking the serene and beautiful Olive Orchard and neighboring vineyards of the Creston Valley, the Olive Cottage Bed and Breakfast was originally built as a guest cottage. In 2006 it was remodeled with added extra conveniences and touches and transformed into a high-end Bed and Breakfast. The Olive Cottage Bed and Breakfast has every amenity one could ask for: a complete kitchen, serene and spacious bedroom, living/dining room and full bath. The private veranda overlooks a valley of vineyards and rolling fields of grain. Guests can prepare a dinner in the fully equipped kitchen or choose to go out to one of the outstanding local restaurants after a busy day exploring Paso Robles Wine Country.
My husband and I stayed at Alta Cresta a couple of nights back in late June and had a wonderful time. The cottage is comfortable and beautiful - a real retreat. The morning breakfasts were simple and tasty and the bottle of wine waiting for us - from a local vineyard - was perfect with the french bread and olive oil. It was also great being a little bit outside of downtown Paso Robles because it made for some fantastic views and a very quiet two days. The grounds of Alta Cresta are gorgeous and the owners make the perfect hosts - helpful and gracious without being intrusive.
If you've been, you know Paso Robles is just a great place to be - and Alta Cresta made it even better.
Such a beautiful guest house! Very nice details and construction, great layout, plenty of space. Best part are the views of olive orchard and the rolling vineyard hills beyond. Amazing sunrise and sunset! Definitely reminded me of the Tuscan hillside. Very private and quiet property and a very short drive to town and also wine tasting. Nice amenities with outdoor patio, wifi, cable tv, great stereo, fully stocked kitchen. And of course delicious olive oil made on premise!
Tranquil,beautiful sunsets on private veranda. Private cottage with seperate bedroom, bath and living quarters which were prefect for us since one of us gets up a lot earlier than the other. Great location looking over Paso Robles for wine tasting and visiting downtown Paso Robles. You will not want to leave.
Love the cottage as we walked thru the cottage on our arrival I was Happy happy happy an when we walked out on the veranda all I could say is AWESOME VIEWS FOR MILES.. Enjoyed a glass of wine in the evening just watching the sunset. The cottage was very clean and I highly recommend that you should stay here :)
My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Alta Crest Orchard Olive Cottage. It was a perfect place for my 60th birthday. The cottage was beautifully decorated. Walking around the olive orchard was so quiet and peaceful. The wonderful olive oil, fresh bread, morning pastries (which were provided every morning) are great for a breakfast out on the back patio, where you can enjoy a great view of the surrounding hills and Paso Robles. We will be letting our family and friends know about this place.
My husband and I stayed at Alta Cresta a year ago, but it sticks out as one of the best locations we have ever been to. We fell in love with the area and the Olive Cottage made our trip as we traveled down the coast of California.
The house is comfortable, well cared for, spotless, and full on luxury. The owners provided wine, cheese, olive oil, and bread at check in which made our first night lovely. We were able to have a lovely walk all around the property and enjoyed seeing the hills, vines, and trees everywhere.
The owners could not have been more kind, helpful, and wonderful hosts. We were so sad when we finished our last bottle of Olive Oil upon our return home.
I would recommend this property to anyone.
Gorgeous property! The view from the back patio is stunning. Property owners are extremely accommodating and ensured that we had our privacy. We had a wonderful stay and would absolutely stay there in the future!
