Private cottage set on a 37-acre farm that boasts a 2-acre private garden

About Barbara & Dan

Barbara and Dan Have poured blood, sweat, and happy tears into this farm which they one day hope to live on! You can learn more on our web site at

Barbara & Dan purchased this chateau / country house in 2005

Why Barbara & Dan chose San Miguel

When we first saw this property, it had absolutely no improvements. The only thing it had going for it was the one Oak tree (where we now do our weddings), and it had the potential for good water (from what we could tell with the cottonwoods growing in the creek). But Barbara and her Dad had a vision, and the property was a blank slate.

Such a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is such a great house. Barbara was so accommodating. We arrived late, but had homemade jam, fresh eggs, milk, butter and bread waiting for us. This cute home is unique and close to wineries all around Paso. It is about 35 minutes to Morrow Beach, 50 min to Avila Beach and if you are willing to go a couple minutes more an awesome place to eat is Ember in Arroyo Grande. There is a gas fire pit in the back overlooking the heart shaped peaceful. We really had a nice time and cannot wait to return.

Absolutley Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage along with their other bed and breakfast for our wedding. Owners are so easy to work with and very accommodating. The property is spectacular! We have gotten tons and tons of responses from our wedding guests, they all were very impressed with the venue. I highly recommend staying here.

Great hosts, beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Barbara was an amazing host! She went above and beyond and way out of her way to accommodate us for a last second trip when she was out of town. She gave us an tour of the home and the entire property, suggested wineries and restaurants to go to, was always available for questions, and even left us some jams made on the farm and wine from a local vineyard.

The property itself is amazing. The cottage itself is cozy and comfortable - perfect for a secluded getaway. The property is on a farm where weddings are thrown so there are beautiful accents and installations everywhere. The farm is huge and has a walkable trail with nice views of surrounding vineyards. The stars at night are also a must see.

Location is perfect - you are in the center of a trail with a million wine tastings on the East Side. You are only a few minute drive away from downtown and any of the vineyards on the West Side.

This is the only place I will ever consider when visiting Paso Robles!!
