Luxury and Privacy among the ancient oaks
Lynne and Tim Martin
About Lynne and Tim Martin
We traveled for almost five years without a home base, living in HomeAway/VRBO properties internationally. Lynne wrote the best-selling Home Sweet Anywhere, How We Sold Our House, Created a New Life, and Saw the World about our adventures. It's now published in eight languages! We packed this house with every amenity we longed for as we traveled. It's minimalist but wildly comfortable with gorgeous linens, brand new appliances, heavenly beds and furniture, total privacy, high ceilings, big windows and a commodious outdoor room where we can enjoy the nature all around us. We want to share all this peace, comfort and beauty with you when we hit the road now and again! We are certain you'll love it! For a few days, a few weeks, or even longer, it can be YOUR Home Sweet Anywhere.
Lynne and Tim Martin purchased this House in 2015
Why Lynne and Tim Martin chose Templeton
Creekside Cottage is unique. It's on a gorgeous country lane covered with an arch of oaks. There are no neighbors nearby, and the simple facade belies the dramatic interior, where fifteen-foot ceilings and huge windows embrace a magnificent stand of old California oaks. Resident deer, squirrels and hundreds of birds are our only neighbors. And yet, Trader Joe's is 1.5 miles away. There are 200 wineries in the area, and the beach is twenty minutes away. This is the perfect place for one or two couples to get away and enjoy the magnificent central coast!
What makes this House unique
Our home is wheelchair accessible. The master bath features a roll-in shower and accessible private toilet. Doorways are 28" wide. You can enjoy a day of touring wineries or the area's other attractions and retreat to your private oasis for a completely relaxing, romantic evening! You'll receive a signed copy of Home Sweet Anywhere when you arrive! It's just the thing for you to read on a sun-dappled lounge by the creek!

Beautiful property in serene neighborhood.
We are two couples who like to visit what is in the area but also appreciate having a quality place to call, “home” while traveling. This property served us well. It was within 15 minutes of wineries and restaurants. It also boasts a gourmet kitchen and grill to enjoy when you have an evening at home.
This getaway is so charming. Lynne is a wonderful hostess. The home is just lovely and the creek side views are so calming and stunning. We will be back! Thank you Lynne!
Thank you for being such lovely guests. We look forward to your return!
Highly recommend! We had a lovely experience staying at this house. The location is secluded and serene, yet very close to Paso Robles and wineries. The house is a beautiful new construction that is spacious with the bit of “hygge” charm. The perfect getaway for both the winter and summer months. The hosts are welcoming and generous, as well. I highly recommend staying here!
Thanks for your kind words. Please return soon.
This beautiful home could not have been in a more perfect setting or location for our getaway weekend with dear friends. It was on a winding country road that made it feel secluded, and yet it was close to all the surrounding areas making them very easy to get to. We were within easy access of Highway 101 which made it only a short hop to Paso Robles' town center and also Highway 46 which took us directly to the coastal town of Cambria where we found a hiking area overlooking the Pacific coastline. And there seemed to be a winery around every corner! Tim and Lynne's home was so warm and inviting and had every possible amenity to make us feel like we could just sit back and relax and enjoy the beauty around us. We took full advantage of the patio with the fire pit and grill and view of the wooded hill behind the house. Trader Joe's, which was practically around the corner, was ideal for our extra food needs so we could prepare our own breakfasts and even a couple of our dinners. We hated to leave this delightful sanctuary and highly recommend it to anyone wishing to leave their hectic schedules behind!
Thank you so much. We're happy you enjoyed your stay and hope you'll return soon!
Peaceful, beautiful, utterly relaxing ...
Loved our stay! A perfectly peaceful, tastefully appointed, wonderfully cared for home --- and just far enough off the well trodden path to be blissfully quiet, yet close enough to the action to be utterly convenient. We really, REALLY loved our time at the Creekside Cottage. Kudo's to the Martin's. We're already planning an annual return. :)
A delightful house in a great location!
This house is absolutely lovely and the hosts are A+. It has a wonderful layout, with an expansive outside area perfect for lounging, reading and listening to the sounds of nature. The location is super accessible to local wineries, a Trader Joe's and the lovely town of Templeton, where there are some local restaurants and a farmer's market on Saturdays. Lynne and Tim are thoughtful hosts, communicative, responsive and attentive to many details that make these type of rentals just right!
Oh, thanks so much for the lovely review. It thrills us to make our guests happy. BTW, kudos to you for being perfect guests. Everything was in tip top shape. We appreciate that so much. The dishwasher was even emptied.
Please come back. Returning visitors get special privileges for being so considerate.
There are 200+ wineries in the Paso Robles area, many with world-class reputations. Our tiny town of Templeton offers a Trader Joe's market, and upscale restaurants and boutiques in a gentrified country setting. We are twenty minutes and a spectacular scenic drive away from the beaches at Cambria. There is a small zoo just minutes away, two local multi-screen cinemas, car festivals, wine festivals, olive oil festivals, concerts in the park, big-name live concerts at wineries and the Mid-State Fair in Augusts. Paso Robles, just ten minutes away, boasts a huge water park, antique and boutique stores, and sophisticated restaurants and bars There's even Uber service if you want to indulge in frivolity!
