About the property

Wine Country Estate

This spacious 4 bedroom, 3 bath home is in the heart of wine country - on over 3 acres in a rural setting of Atascadero. Spacious no smoking, no pet home easily accommodates 10 to 12 guests.

Want to save book direct by calling owners at eight zero 5, four, six 6, five one 66.

The main living, dining, and kitchen are open and spacious so you will never feel crowded. Everyone can join in the fun, whether preparing a meal or snacks in the kitchen, playing billiards or swimming.

Any time of year you can enjoy activities ranging from cycling, hiking, kayaking, surfing, golfing, fishing, and of course just relaxing. Sightseeing or wineries at the top of your list? The historical Hearst Castle is about an hours drive north, there are 2 of California's missions to tour and our region is at the top of the list for world-renowned wineries, so many it will take you more than one visit to visit them all. On a clear night, the stars (not city lights) light up the sky and we are so close to the beaches you can choose from more than a dozen and be at most within half an hour. If car shows are on the top of your list there is at least one a month in the area. This home has covered parking and an abundance of space so there is no need to worry about your 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. For the little ones there is the Paso Robles Fire House Museum; the Atascadero Zoo and paddle boats at Atascadero Lake. After a fun-filled day, you can come back - enjoy a glass of wine in the hot tub or take a dip in the pool. This vacation home truly has it all. In the event more space is needed the Casita may be booked for an additional fee. The Casita is also ideal for a romantic stay. The Lodge and Casita 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. So bring the family, invite your friends and have a wonderful vacation at the Gateway to the Central Coast.

Beautiful property and a great place to stay--couldn't have been more comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This is probably the most comfortable of the many vacation rentals I've stayed in. Casual, clean, and exceptionally well-maintained and equiped, my group of friends and I had a wonderful time. We came to the area for a long weekend of cycling, wine tasting, and dining out, but the property is so enjoyable when we weren't cycling we ended up just hanging out. We cooked up many a meal in the kitchen (other than food, it had everything we needed to prepare meals and store leftovers) and on the wood deck with its large gas grill. Our group of nine, including a couple of daytime visitors, found the place very spacious both inside and outside. The deck has plenty of seating and includes a nice hot tub and pool table, and around the corner from that is a pool with more area for lounging. Inside and out, the place is very well cared for and feels more like you're staying in someone's home rather than a rental. The owners are located near by and were very accommodating and unobtrusively checked-in with us by text from time to time to make sure we were comfortable. Additionally, the location is quiet and secure, yet just a short drive to restaurants and other activities. If you are a cyclists, the area has many great rides, Peachy Canyon being one of my favorites. We hope to return to the area again, and this place is our top choice to stay. Thank you Linda and Gary for the exceptional hospitality and beautiful property!

Beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The home is large enough for a big family or group of friends and well appointed with everything one needs for a weekend or a week away. We only rented the property for three days over a weekend and enjoyed the swimming pool (unheated) and looking at the stars at night. The listing was accurate regarding the location and the layout of the rooms. The property is very clean. Linda provided excellent customer service when the hot tub was found to not be working and unusable during our visit. I would recommend Sculpterra Winery, Justin Vineyards, Il Cortilo restaurant and Bistro Laurent restaurant for dinner (Paso Robles). There is a Vons in Atascadero that has everything one needs. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed to make breakfast in the morning for 10 people - including some welcome items from Gary and Linda - and the living room worked well for conversation and board games. We spent a lot of time out of the home exploring wineries and dining options in Paso Robles but while we were there we found everything easy to use and labeled well. There are lots of deer to see in the area. Gary and Linda have a beautiful place and work hard to make you fell welcome and at home. Thanks for everything!

Owner's Response: James - Gary has installed a new hot tub heater. So next time you return maybe for a winter excursion you can enjoy the hot tub. Thank you for leaving the home in such perfect condition we enjoyed having you all.

Fabulous home for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We were a collection of ages from northern and southern CA, meeting in the middle at Atascadero. Eleven in all, including 3 between 3 and 8 years old, 4 in their 30s, and two of us "elders." The big pool, hot tub, and beautiful pool table out on the deck were all huge hits. The house is spacious and comfortable, easy on a single story, and wonderfully equipped with toys and games for all ages. Linda and Gary are consummate hosts, including wine and chocolates as a welcome! Atascadero turned out to be a brilliant location, hot during the day for swimming in August, and cool enough for a sweater at night. We made easy day trips to San Luis Obispo and Paso Robles, wine toured down to Cambria, and stopped in Morro Bay. We also visited the neighborhood zoo, with its gorgeous red panda, Malaysian tiger, and spider monkey. We didn't quite get to the pedal boats on the lake. Next time! We will definitely be back.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing spot for a little vacation. Our family loved this house and all it had to offer.

The bedrooms are all spread out so almost everyone can have their own private pocket to themselves; along with their own bathroom. Super clean, all amenities provided, Linda has thought of everything.

The pool, hot tub, pool table, corn hole, etc., all gave us tons to do. The house felt very comfortable and is very big. It was so nice to drink wines that we had gotten the prior day while laying around the pool, watching deer roam in the hills behind the house, listening to music and firing up the BBQ.

We will definitely be back.

Thanks for providing the perfect home away from home.

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We visited this property for a long weekend to celebrate my daughter's graduation from Cal Poly . We had 4 generations in attendance, from my 88 year old mother to my 5 year old granddaughter. We all had a fabulous time! The pool and Jacuzzi were a big hit, but we also enjoyed playing pool and cornhole. The house was spacious and very comfortable, and it had every amenity you could ever need. It was close enough to SLO without getting in the fray of the traffic and congestion that happens during graduation week. We have recommended this home to others, and we will definitely be back.

Very comfortable, private property with plenty of room for everyone!

  • 4 of 5

Positives; Labeling of where items were placed was great, nice amenities upon arrival (wine and chocolates), very quiet and private even though neighbors were not that far away, plenty of room for everyone, and owners put lots of effort into making their guests comfortable. Definitely a place that worked for us 4 couples.

Negatives; Issue with the hot tub that owner tried to fix but was unable at the time, was not able to get the heat lamp working although the owner was able to (maybe too tricky for guests?), would have been nice to have a DVR to record sports during the day so we could watch at night, garbage disposal would have been nice, wireless worked but kept kicking us out after a short period of time so had to sign back in.

Overall, you have a lovely place and we all could tell that you take great pride in making it a comfortable homey rental. Thanks for a lovely stay!

Owner's Response: We are truly sorry the hot tub was not working while you were here. We have purchased a new one, however, we did find it was working after you had left. We do not have a garbage disposal as we are on a septic system. We are sorry we have not been able to get an internet service provider that is more reliable - we do have that noted on the website and we apologize again for any inconvenience it created.

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, sight seeing and best of all relaxing.
