Central Coast California Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

Amazing location and breathtaking views! Nestled in the coastal foothills just off California Scenic Hwy 46 West - exactly halfway between the quaint artist village of Cambria (10 min.) and gateway to the spectacular Paso Robles/Templeton wine region (just outside your door).

Newly remodeled cottage from the ground up. Enjoy top of the line furnishings, amenities and touches that one would expect from a nationally renowned artist. The large master bedroom is a Southeast Asian retreat with unique pieces from Nepal and Thailand. The queen bedroom takes you back to early California. The kitchen is fully stocked and has granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. Relax with a cool beverage on the patio overlooking the vast farming valley below or tuck yourselves back in the shade of the oaks and bay trees off the rear patio. 100% privacy enables you to enjoy the additional outdoor shower, use the massage table, read or watch the red tail hawks soar peacefully above.

Nearby Activities: Hearst Castle, Wine tasting, Farmer's Markets, Morro Bay Estuary and Bird Preserve, Cayucos Beach Town, Summer Music Festivals, Paso Robles/Templeton Wineries.

Fabulous Home

  • 5 of 5

First off I cannot say enough about the kindness of the owner. Lisa's hospitality helped make our stay relaxing and enjoyable. We had quite a rain storm our first day and she called in the afternoon to check on us and make sure we were doing OK. This along with her advice on places to dine and shop helped us to plan a wonderful vacation.

Now to the house. My husband and I were vacationing with our friends and the four of us found the house the perfect size for our vacation. The kitchen is lovely and has everything necessary for meals in, if you choose. Super comfortable bedrooms and den made relaxing very easy. In addition to a great house, the location is perfect. You are close to the coast, downtown Paso and Templeton. We highly recommend this house and it's beautiful location overlooking the vineyards.

The Dream House!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at this cottage for the third time, and it never disappoints. We refer to it as "the Dream House" because it's the best vacation rental we've ever had. The location is perfect: near the summit of the coast range, up on a hill overlooking a vineyard, off by itself; 10 minutes from Templeton and wineries and 10 minutes from the coast. So you're close to everything, but all you hear up there is the occasional distant cow. The house itself is ideal: the bed is incredibly comfortable, the kitchen is well outfitted, there's a gas grill--everything is well kept up and clean. Most of all: the owners are absolutely wonderful. Correspondence is reliable, professional, friendly. They give you plenty of space, but they become pals if you give them half a chance, and they provide all the information about the area you might possibly need. We always feel warmly welcomed when we arrive, and we're always sorry to have to leave. We love the central California coast for the hiking, the beaches, the wineries, and the rolling hills. But if we tried to plan a trip there and the Dream House weren't available, we probably wouldn't go. You'll fall in love with this place.

Owner's Response: Dear Wonder Woman and Distinguished Professor, The nasty flu bug, deadlines and exhaustion prevented us from sharing a bottle (or two) of wine this time around. You officially have a rain check for your next visit! Maybe we'll join you for a hike as well. Happiest wishes for a peaceful, healthy and creatively inspiring 2015.

Right in the middle close to HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5

We had a little bit of heaven on the top of a hill. Our visit to this wonderful property was magical.

The views from the porch were awesome! We even saw Bald Eagles and a beautiful Red Tail Hawk. The location is great, so close to Cambria, Morro Bay and all the wineries around Paso Robles. The beds were so comforatble and the cottage was immaculate. The owners were so flexible and accommodating, we felt right at home. The hill makes for a vigorous morning walk pass the vineyards with the little birds scurrying across the path,including some wild turkeys!

We spent a day out to breakfast at the Cowgirl Cafe and a Farmers Market in downtown Paso Robles.

Lisa even shared fresh goodies from her garden. Our gatherings on the porch in the evening were so much fun. We hope to come back soon!

Perfect Weekend Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We managed to explore San Luis Obispo, Morro Bay and Cambria during the day but the best part was making it back to the cottage each afternoon for our own local wine tasting on the patio with our friends. What a beautiful home and peaceful setting... exactly as portrayed in the photos ... exactly what we needed :)

Owner's Response: Vicki and Gordon - To date we've been left: sticks of butter, opened bottles of red wine with 2" left at the bottom, an occasional egg or two … but never has a guest given us a personal artwork! We were so honored. Thank you, thank you. We'll look forward to another visit and next time we should meet. (: Lisa and Randy

My husband and I stayed in this awesome cottage with another couple. It was a peaceful resort with gorgeous views! We were able to BBQ and sit out on the front porch while enjoying a nice glass of wine. While it was hot at the wineries, it was cool up at the cottage - yet still great weather to sit outside. Wifi and TV kept losing signal, but it was kind of nice to be off the grid for a weekend. We had an amazing weekend at the cottage!

Owner's Response: You guys were awesome … thanks for leaving our special place so nice. We'll look forward to seeing you again … book in the GREEN spring for a real treat! Cheers - L & R p.s. the wifi and tv are in tip top shape now … we had had a power outage in this area that made everyone's service go wonky.

Perfect....just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Our annual ladies wine jaunt (just two gals in need of a break from the city). We come up every year and usually stay at area hotels. This time we decided to give this a whirl. Soooooo glad we did! The house is situated right in the middle of wine country, so it is very convenient to tastings. We did not have an agenda so we just let our stay "unfold." Lisa gave us some wonderful suggestions, and we read guests recommendations...and every winery, restaurant, or trek we took turned out fabulous. The house has such a lovely feel to it, and we found ourselves just hanging out half the time.

We will definitely be going back. Thanks Lisa for your "perfect day" was just that!

Perched atop the Stromsoe Vineyard, a producing 5 acre vineyard of Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio, you'll enjoy a country retreat setting. It's only 2 minutes to the first wine tasting opportunity on the 'west side' in the York Mountain AVA. Our location is generally 15 degrees cooler than downtown Paso in the summer. You can visit dozens and dozens of fine wineries within a 10 mile radius. Be sure to take a sunset stroll on one of our uncrowded, pristine beaches less than 15 minutes from your door!

Close proximity to downtown Paso, its wonderful restaurants and wine events - this location has it all!

Other Activities: Boating, basketball court, shopping, kayaking, wildlife viewing, health/beauty spa, hot air ballooning
