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.

The most incredible owners!

  • 5 of 5

To anyone who is looking at this listing as a possibility for vacation rental, let me assure you are making a great choice! My boyfriend's family and I were supposed to stay for a weekend getaway to celebrate my boyfriends 30th birthday. Unfortunately, the weekend we flew out was considered some of the worst weather conditions California had in 5 years. So we couldn't safetly make the trip to Paso. Lisa (property owner) was intouch with me and guiding me the entire process. She made my trip unbelievably stress free. All my money was refunded and I look forward to going back sometime in the near future!

A Dream House!

  • 5 of 5

We've never stayed in a more perfect place. The cottage is perched high on a hill, with wonderful views and quiet serenity. It's brilliantly decorated and outfitted, with two comfortable bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, TV & wifi, a gas grill, and everything else you might want. Everything is clean and well maintained. It's ideally situated if you want to explore wineries (mostly to the east, toward Templeton/Paso Robles) and the coast (11 miles to the west). We also found it a good base to do hiking in and around Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo, and to watch elephant seals north of Cambria. Lisa and Randy are warm, accommodating hosts, happy to help with information or, in our case, last-second scheduling changes. We've stayed here 4 times now, and hope to return as soon as possible. We've rented many properties from VRBO, but this cottage has been the biggest hit. You'll love it! And, yes, we always refer to it as "the Dream House."

Comfortable and beautiful property - you will not want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Lisa and Randy's property in Templeton was so comfortable that we hardly wanted to leave. We chose to stay there because it was centrally located among wineries and near beautiful coastal hikes and beach towns, which I am glad we experienced. But it was equally enjoyable to sit on the ample outdoor furniture at the cottage and watch the sunset. The house is well-equipped with all the basics (and more) to make most local activities (or staying still) totally accessible. It was a great place for a weekend getaway!

Shangri-La on the Central Coast

  • 5 of 5

Lisa, the owner, had the cottage in pristine condition upon our arrival. The cottage is simply beautiful and so peaceful. The comfy porch furniture was placed just so to offer us a stunning view of the property and hills that surround it, and the stars at night were amazing...even had a clear view of the Milky Way above us! Lisa was a phone call away if needed, but otherwise gave us our space. This cottage is perfect for 2 couples or 2 people such as a girlfriend getaway. It is exactly in between Paso Robles and the coast (Cayucos). The temperature was not too hot, not too cold. Wonderful and I hope to return sooner rather than later!

Beautiful PLace Adjacent to the wine country

  • 5 of 5

Great rooms with a view nestled between Coastal Live Oak forest and small vineyard. Very quiet with a great view. The kitchen is well stocked and there are laundry facilities. Just minutes away from the western end of the wine country. Had a bit of a scheduling glitch but our host more than took care of the situation. Would definitely recommend to anyone staying near Paso Robles or the coast. Would stay here again.

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.
