Paso Robles farmhouse description

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 on the property.

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.

              Car: Necessary

              Ron and I realize how difficult it is to imagine where a place is and what the area is like. We would be happy to visit with you on the phone to help orient our guesthouse to the type of local sites you are interested in. On our property, we offer carriage Driving with Horses, Contact and interaction with Horses. Carriage rides offered by appointment. Overlook is a place where carriage driving is taught and where local drivers come to practice for competitions. This is a great spot to fly kites and we keep some in the guesthouse for your use along with board games. The Chicken Condo is home to our 10 hens. When possible, we supply fresh, free range, homegrown eggs to our guests. There is also a house for the 3 ducks who live at Overlook. A horseshoe pit is a popular game, along with a garden chess set. Our new olive grove has given its first crop and the 2014 crop will be large enough to make oil and eating olives. One can often see herds of bicyclist flashing by on nearby Cripple Creek Road and occasionally a hot air balloon will glide by or roar its burner to rise as it goes. We love the sun rise and sunset views, especially when there are clouds. Often, guests will stroll the approximately 5 acre grounds around sunset with a glass of wine to catch the best color in the sky. They choose that wine from the many tasting rooms in the general area, some as close as 3 miles away. Sometimes, guests will arrange to be picked up by professional drivers to do their wine tour, but mostly they enjoy the pleasure of finding their favorite wineries by searching on their own. Many guests have now become members of wine clubs at tasting rooms and come back regularly to pick up their wine. There are too many options to list, but there are lots of brochures and suggestions in the guesthouse. We hope you will leave a note or a card telling of your own finds.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: 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.

              Why the Owner Chose Paso Robles:
              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.

              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
              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 kennel next to the patio for those who travel with dogs and want to leave them while they sight-see. 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 was delicious. 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.
