Paso Robles Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description
Farmhouse, 1 Bedroom + 1 twin bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Overlook Guesthouse is a spacious and newly re-decorated one bedroom which was the original farm residence and part of a larger building containing a garage and Ron's play space with wood and metal working tools. All who see it think it is charming and surprising. There is a large fenced yard and patio.

Overlook Guesthouse is located on 10 private and gated acres which is home to Overlook Driving Center, a place for the training and competition of modern carriage driving horses. We would be happy to offer you a ride and some interaction with our horses is available. If you have your own horses, we invite you to bring them. They can be stabled quite near the guesthouse.

This property is in a quiet neighborhood of 10 acre properties, which is virtually surrounded by vineyards. The location is convenient for visiting the area cities and attractions, while maintaining a truly country atmosphere. Over 100 wineries are within touring distance, as well as many fine restaurants, parks and beaches.

This guesthouse is a good choice for those who want a quiet and private location for work or rest. Ron and Linda, your hosts, will do all we can to customize your stay to your pleasure.

Linda is a retired carriage driving judge and trainer, which itself was a second career after many years of residential design and drafting. Now, she has 4 horses, who keep her physically active and able to compete in horse shows and trail rides. They are John, Cari, Johnathan and Clare. She also enjoys flower and vegetable gardening, though without much real skill or knowledge. There is one resident dog, a miniature Poodle named Joseph. The family is rounded out with 6 hens who give us (and you) fresh eggs.

Linda Fairbanks purchased this farmhouse in 2010

Ron's family has been in Paso Robles since 1890. They were farmers and ranchers. We built this structure and used it as a caretaker quarter until 2010, when it was refurbished to be used as a vacation rental. We chose this location because of it is ideal for our sport of carriage driving and centrally located to the local cities.

This is a comfortable place for quiet work or relaxation. It would be a good place to write or paint or do any creative work. There is a 14' x 19' bedroom, a large and airy bath with shower and a living/dining/kitchen space which is conducive to conversation. The large patio is part of a large and shady yard which is fenced to allow dogs to relax outside. There is a covered stall and paddock next to the patio for those who travel with horses. We can even loan a miniature horse if your children would like to experience being around a horse. We encourage visitors to enjoy walking on the property, visiting with the animals who live here and also the natural ones who share this bit of land. There are many rabbits and quail, occasional deer and fox, many hawks, meadowlarks and crows. We enjoy feeding the ducks and chickens every evening. Chicks are due to hatch today (October 15). The newest addition is guinea pigs, Walnut and Rosie, who live in the carriage room. We love their little noises and soft coats. Their cage is rather large and they love it when we re-arrange their toys and furniture. The olive grove is growing well and our first harvest is in the brine cure now. Overlook is hosting a learning weekend for carriage drivers on October 26. The carriage driving continues here with 3 Overlook horses getting use every week in addition to the visiting drivers who practice here. Finally, we have added a telephone to the amenities inside the guesthouse. It is for local calls only but we hope it will be a convenience for guests.

This is a wonderful place for people and dogs. The hosts, Linda and Ron, were very hospitable. We stayed one week with our two dogs, a Golden Retriever and a Gordon Setter. The apartment was large, modern and comfortable with a largish enclosed area and kennel for the dogs. The property was fenced, and we were able to visit with the resident horses, goats and dogs. The drive to town, Paso Robles, was easy and a traffic free 10 minutes and San Luis Obispo was an easy jaunt. We will definitely stay there again.

Wow! We had a very relaxing and enjoyable week in Paso Robles and this vacation rental. We loved the horse pulled carriage ride and the fresh vegetables from the garden. The location is soooooo quiet and you can see TONS of stars at night. We were able to bring our two little dogs along and they loved roaming around the farm. This home is less than 5 minutes from one of 100s of wineries located in the Paso Robles area. Thank you for a great stay!

Just came back from a short getaway vacation, having had a pleasure of staying at a very clean and well maintained countryside property. Linda and Ron are very hospitable and we felt truly welcomed there. We even got chance to meet their pet horses. I highly recommend this place to everyone who appreciates little pleasures of countryside life!

Diamond in the Rough!

Linda & Ron were most accomodating, even taking a last minute call to allow us to arrive a day earlier! This "gem" is truly a wonderfully spacious place with an inviting and comfortable aura. We loved the goodies left in the refrigerator for us, along with having internet, a wonderful huge enclosed patio with BBQ and firepit. The grounds were serene and peaceful. Ron & Linda are gracious and available if needed. We highly recommend this "Diamond in the Rough!" The location is perfect for visiting downtown Paso and lots of wineries, along with shopping. Pet friendly was a plus, with accomodations for the pet too! This will be our place to stay while visiting Paso Robles in the future!

Owner's Response: Pat and Dick are ideal guests and we would welcome them back any time. We loved their friendly smiles and they were clean and neat. The limosine was a great touch too!

Terrific!

It was very helpful to have the basic food items - (butter, bread, coffee, etc.) We have made many stops on this trip and had to buy those items, eat them once or twice, then leave them there. Also, the movies were grat, and my daughter loved the dominos, kites, games, etc. The books look very interesting-only if we had more time. This place is just terrific. We absolutely loved staying here and we would love to be able to come back soon. Thank you for everything and we all really enjoyed meeting the horses. Also, the magazines were good choices and everything is so new and clean looking. Thanks again for everything.

Thanks so much for your hospitality. The photos on VRBO don't do this place justice. We were pleasantly surprised with the amount of space.
