Overview

About the property

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 countertops 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. BBQ in your own "park" complete with picnic table and shade trees.

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! Please note: for the comfort of the majority of our guests this is a NON-SMOKING property.

About Lisa and Randy Stromsoe

We moved from Los Angeles to the charming village of Cambria in 1979. We raised our daughter and son in Cambria until we found this slice of paradise on 25 acres just 13 minutes inland from the coast. We've enjoyed a large organic garden every year and we are currently looking forward to our 5th harvest of Pinor Noir and Pinot Grigio wine grapes from our 5 acre vineyard.

We are artists by trade and find this location to be peaceful and inspiring.

Lisa and Randy Stromsoe purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Lisa and Randy Stromsoe chose Central Coast

Two years ago we decided to remodel an existing cottage perched on the hill above our vineyard. The views are spectacular. We began offering the vineyard cottage as a nightly vacation rental in April of 2008. We've had many return guests ... everyone loves it! When we don't have rental guests, my husband and I like to lay on the grass and look up at the millions of stars.

What makes this cottage unique

After a day of wine tasting and the warm ... sometimes TOO warm weather of Paso Robles, guests love to return to the cottage which is only minutes from the tasting rooms yet up to 15 degrees cooler. We enjoy the coastal influence on many hot summer days. We love to pack a sweatshirt and head to San Simeon Cove or Cayucos for a beach walk at low tide ... no crowds. The counties BEST restaurants are 15 minutes in any direction from the cottage! Paso Robles, Templeton, Cambria and Cayucos.

Great location. Perfect for a wine retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Lisa & Randy for providing a wonderfully decorated cottage. The decor was exceptional. The rolling hills and peaceful environment was exactly what my wife and i expected. Excellent location between wineries and the coast in Cambria. Could not ask for a better location. We will come back again!

Owner's Response: Hey Matt - We hope you and yours had a blast in Paso. SOOOO much beer, right? Come stay again. You can see Randy's amazing studio where he makes Sterling Silver and Pewter pilsners, tankards and any kind of drinking, eating and celebrating vessels for Kings and Popes and regular people like us. Thank you for leaving your bottles of treats for us. We took them camping. Cheers!

Beautiful property and amazing owners!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the most magical properties I've ever experienced! The cottage is very clean and beautifully decorated. The night sky was breathtaking. And, the privacy and seclusion of the home almost require dancing on the patio. Thank you for the incredible experience! We'll definitely be back.

Owner's Response: We are so happy when our guests really take in the experience of being up on our little, secluded hilltop hideaway. Sometimes I literally gasp when I look up at the night sky - it seems huge! Thank you for being wonderful guests and we hope you'll have the chance to return soon.

Quick 2 night Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Lovely private home nestled in oak trees and vineyards. Very private, clean and well appointed. Great for a family or a couple for a get away. Close enough to the coast so temperatures are very moderate but close to both Cambria and Paso right off the 46. Would definitely stay here again in the future.
