Hollyhock Vineyard's Cute Cottage..Quaint Secluded Getaway on small Vineyard

Bedrooms 1
Space 275 sq ft
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Studio cottage w/ kitchenette on beautiful 10 Acre Vineyard Property!

Come stay in the middle of the Paso Robles wine country and enjoy the peace and relaxation in a quaint cottage that takes advantage of views and the lifestyle of the Paso wine region. The studio has a queen bed, a pull out couch, table and chairs, kitchenette, new bath, BBQ and private sitting area in front of cottage!

The property is a working vineyard containing 8 acres of mature Grenache and Mourvedre vines. All grapes are currently supplied to Tablas Creek for inclusion in their Patelin line and recently won Double Gold for the Grenache Rose. Tablas Creek was recently ranked #1 winery in the country.

Please note that Hollyhock Vineyard is a working vineyard, and we are surrounded by farms. While the unit is thoroughly cleaned after each guest, unfortunately that does not always keep all the dust and bugs from getting in. It is also possible you might hear rural sounds such as tractors, pigs, goats, horses, cats, dogs, frogs, owls, bugs, and other animals during your stay. For these reasons, this property is not like staying at a hotel, but we hope this adds to the charm of vineyard living for our guests.

There is a main Farm House and another studio cottage on the property listed with VRBO as well (#784836, #686401). Feel free to book all three listings for a family or group getaway and have the whole vineyard to yourself!

There is a community Bocce Ball Court that is shared with the other two cottages, ample parking, and you are welcome to peruse the vineyards. At the top of the hill is a bench and a great spot to open a bottle of wine and enjoy the views. Feel free to pick from the many fruit, olive, almond, and walnut trees on the property.

Well behaved dogs are welcome with a $25 pet fee per stay. If you leave your pup at home please ensure they are kenneled. The vineyard is a great spot for dog walks and is completely fenced in if you would like to let the pup roam. However, if there are dogs staying in one of the other cottages please respect the local leash laws. Please no pets on the furniture or beds.

Within a few miles are many of the best wineries in the country. Victor Hugo's Winery is across the street if you are looking for a winery within walking distance. There are several others within biking distance as well. Of course we highly recommend the drive to Tablas Creek to sample wine from our vineyard! Please see the guidebook for more recommendations!

Downtown Paso Robles has fantastic restaurants, tasting rooms, and shops. Our favorite spots include Artisan, Thomas Hill Organics, Il Cortile, Buona Tavola, and the Pony Club bar. If you like beer, make sure to check out Firestone Brewing, Barrel House Brewing, and The Pour House.

Downtown Templeton is a cozy farm town and has a great steakhouse called McPhees, and a lively wine bar called 15 degrees.

Necessities and groceries can be found off of Niblick Road, less than 5 miles away: Albertsons, Walmart, CVS, Kohl's, Starbucks, Chase Bank, Chevron, and more.

Biking: If you are looking to get some exercise and enjoy the scenery you can ride your bike to many of the local wineries. Leave your wine purchases at the wineries and pick them up another time with your car.

Walking: you can step out our gate and meander around the neighborhood easily. Olive trees on one side and goat cheese producer on another. Convenient to all yet rural feel.

Uber and UberWINE: Yes Uber is here... and they now have a wine tasting service too!

Fetch: Will pick up dinner, groceries, beverages and will deliver to you. Hours 11 a.m to 2 a.m.

About Julie and Bill Lapp

Julie is originally from the Bay Area CA and Bill is from New England. After owning (and renting) a beach cottage in Kennebunkport Maine for the past seven years and recently having a baby girl we decided that it was finally time to get a vacation place a little closer to our home in the Bay Area.

Julie and Bill Lapp purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Julie and Bill Lapp chose Templeton

We asked ourselves, why choose another beach home when we have such amazing vineyards here? We purchased Hollyhock Vineyard in late 2015 and are excited to continue the high level of service set by the previous owners Lisa and Philip. Bill works in high technology and travels the USA to visit customers (and is now a part time farmer and vineyard manager). Julie is a middle school counselor (and part time rental property manager).

What makes this cottage unique

We love visiting Hollyhock Vineyard with our family and Golden Retriever Cappy. Cappy is the happiest pup in the world when he gets to race around the 8 acre property and say hello to the neighboring goats, horses, and the ground squirrels he can never seem to catch.

Perfect family gathering spot.

Enjoyed a large family gathering to celebrate a Cal Poly Graduation. Rented all three properties and couldn't have been more impressed. Great weekend.

perfect small cottage as described in the middle of wine country

  • 5 of 5

Great little cottage tucked in the Templeton Gap section of Paso Robles wine country. It was relatively private and perfect for a weekend getaway.

The property is stunningly beautiful & the room spacious

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location and views. No one else was on the property. While the cottage is equipped with necessities, basics like cream & sugar for coffee, lotion for after shower would be nice. I let the owners (or property manager) know, we would be staying there the night we get married and the following day. It was really late when we got there so not having coffee with cream & sugar in the morning was a bummer. Since it was our wedding night a welcome package would've been nice. Similar to hotels, maps of wineries in area, where to rent a bike or get a taxi to visit wineries would've been nice. While I loved our stay and the cottage, some attention to details like examples above would further enhance the stay.

Wonderful place to get away

  • 4 of 5

I wanted to get away from the office for a few days. This cottage was the right solution. It's out-of-town, but not so far that groceries and restaurants aren't within easy access. It is on a working vineyard and the main windows look east up the vine-laden hill. I was free to walk the property and enjoyed doing so. There's a bench at the hill's top with 360 degree views. Pretty nice.

The cottage itself is full of light, warm, and comfortable. It has a tub and a towel warmer. The kitchen is adequate for one or two people, but I only found a small frying pan for the one-burner stove. The cottage has a microwave and toaster oven. There's a Weber gas grill outside and a nice table and chairs.

It's a good place that I'll book again when I need to get away.

Peaceful and Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. We were there mid-week, and had the place to ourselves. Everything was very comfortable (especially the bed). Loved the towel warmer in the bathroom too. We stayed with our 2 dogs and enjoyed walking through the vineyard with them in the mornings and evenings. Great wine tasting nearby.
