Property description

More amenities than any hotel could offer this licensed vacation home located in the rural area of Atascadero. This spacious no smoking, no pet home is ideally located to see the Historic Hearst Castle, within 50 miles of more than 300 wineries and close enough to visit any of the dozen beaches in the area within a 30 to 60 minute drive, or play golf on a couple tough courses. Car shows at the top of your list? This home has covered parking and an abundance of space so there is no need to worry about your precious vehicle - there is enough parking for all. Summer evenings are warmer than the beach or southern locations yet we are cooler than the northern sister city of Paso Robles. Any time of year you can enjoy activities ranging from cycling, hiking, historical tours of California's missions, surfing, golfing, fishing and of course wine tasting. For the little ones there is the Paso Robles Fire House Museum and the Atascadero Zoo. After a fun filled day you can come back and enjoy a glass of wine in the hot tub or take a dip in the pool. This vacation home truly has it all. In case you need a little more space for guests than the 3000 square foot main house - there is a Casitas ideal for two. The Casita is also ideal for a romantic stay (they are not rented to different parties at the same time so if you have rented the main Lodge you will not have anyone other than your invited guests on site. The same is true if you have rented the Casita.

Car: Recommended

We are a no smoking, no pet Estate in a quiet residential area located about 2 miles west of highway 101 off the Traffic Way off ramp. We are in a bit of a canyon so wifi is sketchy. There are about a dozen beaches within 15 to 25 miles west and wineries are as close as 5 to 30 miles in any direction. Hearts Castle is a must see while your in the area. It is a wonderful area for cycling, hiking, seasonal ice skating, sight seeing and best of all relaxing.
