Oak Flat Retreat is down a tree-lined road on a 42 acre property, which provides privacy in a rustic setting of rolling hills and Oak trees. This Cozy bungalo is filled with quality art and antiques that compliment the overall feel of this getaway. The property has been restored and equipped with upgraded and new amenities to make it not only a comfortable stay, but a perfect place for entertaining with an open floor plan, comfortable seating, and plenty of room for outdoor entertaining.
Remodeled in 2001, with the notion of making the outdoors accessible the space is outfitted with double hung windows, screen doors and porches designed to take advantage of the great views, fresh country air and beautiful light. While sitting on our porch swing with a glass of wine, and watching the wildlife in their natural setting, you’re bound to have a restful yet inspiring experience!
Enjoy a full cooking and dining experience in our fully equipped kitchen, complete with open dining and living areas, or call our resident chef and local favorite who with little notice can prepare dinner and fill the kitchen with seasonal fruit and vegetables.
All the comforts of home: quality linens and mattresses, wireless internet, printer, fax, and scanner. Flat screen TV and stereo with surround sound.
The loft apartment (rents separately) has its own heating and cooling systems, ceiling fans and many windows that make for a light and airy space. Accommodations include a trundle bed and sitting area with laddered loft space complete with two twin beds for the more agile guest. This space also offers a claw foot tub and kitchenette.
The converted barn/studio that serves as an artist workspace includes a painter’s easel, movable large work table, and a large utility sink. The wood burning stove, large windows and rolling barn doors are perfect for natural light. This space also serves as a teaching or entertainment area with over scaled leather furniture, ping-pong table, wine storage and full-sized refrigerator.

Oak Flat Retreat was originally purchased by an artist pair whose primary residence is in Southern California. We were looking for a beautiful country place, where we could paint outside year round. After looking in a variety of places for several years, we came to visit friends in Paso Robles and fell in love with the area. The moment we saw this property we knew that this was our perfect retreat.
In 2000 our plans for a simple remodel of the existing home grew from opening a wall here and a window there, to a complete remodel including porches on all sides, new windows and doors, new beamed ceiling, new roof, fireplace, complete kitchen and master bath remodel, wood floors as well as new A/C and soft water systems. Not to mention the exterior stone, paving and drip systems. We never intended on building a larger house, planting grapes or raising farm animals because we wanted to come to Paso to relax and enjoy family and friends.
As the wines of this area are being discovered and grow in popularity the influx of new restaurants, tasting rooms, organic foods and artistic people continue to change the demographics of Paso Robles. We continue to be amazed at the speed at which our community is growing, but are thankful to be surrounded by large ranches and farms that for at least our lifetimes will help to preserve the country way of life.
Being in Paso is not only a feast for the eyes and taste buds, but the joy and simplicity of gracious country living is food for the soul!
