About Eric Kaltenbach
Having traveled extensively for business and pleasure, Eric and Candice know how to make their guests feel comfortable and welcome. Their goal is to create an atmosphere of relaxation while creating the ambiance of stepping into a Tuscan country cottage. Although Eric spent years in the corporate world, his passions include gourmet cooking, fine wine, music, landscape photography and spending time with his wife of 27 years, Candice. Candice, who retired a number of years ago, was an accomplished hair stylist with an impressive client list. She was also part of a well-known auto dealer family dynasty in Orange County California. The Auto Group was sold in 2014. Candice loves style, design, cooking with Eric and reading a good novel on the veranda overlooking the olive orchard.
Eric Kaltenbach purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Eric Kaltenbach chose Paso Robles
We purchased this property to have an opportunity to make some of the finest extra virgin olive oil in California. And, to share a piece of this beautiful country estate with our guests. We love the Tuscan architecture, the location on a High Ridge, and the views of vineyards in the distance looking over the olive orchard. We truly feel that we are living in Tuscany every day!
What makes this Cottage unique
The views are amazing. Actually the cottage has better city lights views at night than the main house. No matter the outside air temperature, you will find yourself hanging out on the veranda. The sunsets are super great. There are lots of birds including quail, owls, and hawks. Deer roam nearby in the late afternoon.

The hosts were fantastic. Very helpful with recommendations for wine tasting, food and hiking.
Stay here! You will not regret anything. Views, tranquil setting, and close to some of the best wineries. Plenty of wildlife to enjoy on a quick walk. We will definitely return.
Terrific view Beautiful place lovely time
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Alta Cresta. Eric and Candice were lovely hosts, making sure we had everything that we needed, without being ever present. The cottage is beautifully and comfortably furnished, the view is gorgeous, and the location was perfect - out of the way, but accessible to what we wanted to see and do.
Absolutely stunning property
Amazing, beautiful, relaxing. Eric and his sweet wife were so accommodating and kind. We look forward to our next stay.
What an amazing cottage. The first word that comes to my mind is classy. Everything was built so sturdy and with such attention to detail. The cottage was decorated in a beautiful way. The thoughtful goodies left for us on the counter as well as in the fridge were such a thoughtful extra touch. We have stayed at a lot of places in Paso Robles but this was by far our favorite and we will be back. The views were amazing!! I would seriously not look anymore and book this place as soon as you can. I can’t wait to go back .
No other word but Perfect!
This was the perfect cottage for our 35th anniversary! The cottage is beautiful, clean, private and has the most spectacular views. The patio is perfect for relaxing, sipping wine from the many wineries, and watching the sun set. The owners are wonderful also. We had a small problem with the rental car and Eric quickly grabbed his tools to help. We only wish we didn't live so far away so we could stay here more often.
What a property! The comfort level was amazing: gorgeous layout, fantastic view, and obvious attention to every detail. The owners welcome you with their warm personalities and gifts of breakfast and snack items, including their own brand of olive oil made from the magnificent olive orchard on site. Will definitely plan to return again! A+++
There are over 250 wineries in the greater Paso Robles area. Many wineries offer wine tasting, some for a fee, and many have nice picnic areas. Downtown Paso has great restaurants that are just a few minutes away. Bring your sports car and enjoy the great country roads around the Central Coast.
Rates & Availability
We love kids and pets, but we feel that our Olive Cottage and the surrounding area is best enjoyed by adults. Thus, we have a policy of no pets and occupancy is limited to two people. Service animals must accompany their owners at all times and may not remain unattended in the Cottage.
