Sometimes in San Luis Obispo County you can sleep in a vineyard, or at least next to it. Such is the case at Rock Basin Vineyards & Guest Homes in Santa Margarita, located off a vista-rich country road along which you can buy fresh eggs. A delightful retreat, you get an entire house to yourself, but you can wander the property, visit with the animals or just sit by the pond and watch the meadow grass ripple in the wind.

The property was purchased in 1979. In 2003 I donated the old cabin to CAL Fire for a training exercise. The Vista House is my new replacement home and was completed in early 2005. It sits on the old cabin site and has a spectacular view of the vineyards, mountains, fields and valley. I am please to share with my guests the abundant natural beauty of this unique setting where I live in harmony with the land, the animals and nature. The photo of me was taken in the vineyard at springtime as the new vine growth was beginning to push.
The Vista House is my second vacation rental at Rock Basin Vineyards. The Windmill House (#40846 on vrbo site) was so well received by vacationers, I decided to open the Vista House to guests, too. Both homes provide clean, modern conveniences in a quiet, rural setting that is a short 20 minute commute to downtown San Luis Obispo. The properties are available for weddings, garden and engagement parties, reunions, seminars, corporate retreats and workshops.
The beautiful and peaceful Las Pilitas Valley affords visitors a chance to really get away from 'it'. Nature is as close as a step outside with deer, coyotes, bobcats, and a multitude of birds of every variety in abundance. Our rosy sunsets and starry nights are spectacular! The area is very popular with bicyclists because of the mountainous terrain and quiet country roads. Wine lovers enjoy our vineyard tours and tasting the fruit of the vines in Santa Margarita. Book your stay soon and experience for yourself why we have become so popular!
