Paso Robles cottage description

Named for the doves that we hear in the trees on quiet summer mornings, Dove Haven Cottage is a cozy (600 square foot) cottage nestled in the heart of Paso Robles wine country. The cottage is on a road that ends at the fence line of 800 acres of rolling pasture land, so there is almost no traffic. While it is in the country, it is only two miles away from downtown Paso Robles, which features many events, such as wine and olive festivals and the California Mid-State Fair, as well as many excellent restaurants. The cottage is located by our home but is separate and private with it's own small patio underneath redwood trees....a great place to read and relax. Subdued lighting and a clawfoot bathtub make it easy to unwind. High-definition cable television with music channels are provided, as well as internet service for your laptop. The gas fireplace provides both warmth and atmosphere on winter evenings. A complimentary bottle of one of our local wines (or a bottle of sparkling cider if you prefer) is our gift to you to enjoy in front of the fireplace or outside in the shade of the redwood trees.

Keywords: Peaceful, private, old fashioned, premium wine area, great weekend get-away for two

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1995

                          About the owner: Dave is a retired construction contractor...having built both his home as well as the cottage, when he and his wife, Lynne, decided to settle in Paso Robles 12 years ago. They have two grown daughters, an Australian son-in-law, and have recently become grandparents. Because they have lived in this area for over 40 years, they are familiar with many of the beautiful areas on the central coast.

                          Why the Owner Chose Paso Robles:
                          We built the cottage as a "home-away-from-home" for visiting friends and we are offering it as a vacation rental in between visitors.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Nestled in the heart of wine country, the cottage offers a special place to relax and unwind. Enjoy the old-fashioned charm along with modern comforts. Since the cottage is located half way between San Francisco and Los Angeles, it is a convenient spot for a restful weekend.
