About the property

Our reviews say it all! This is the perfect wine destination venue.

Situated one quarter of a mile off the road, the Willow House provides peace, quiet and security for guests. There is easy access to the multitude of wineries in the area, with helpful knowledge from your hosts who have witnessed the growth of the industry in the past 23 years. Although wine is high on the lists of visitors, your hosts can be very helpful in guiding you to the best of restaurants, attractions and other highlights of the area. Willow House comes completely furnished, with separate bedrooms and baths for each couple. A top of the line BBQ, and a kitchen full of all you'll need to prepare breakfast or a full meal. The expansive deck is a pleasant evening rest spot for each to contemplate the view with a favorite glass of wine. We consider, and guests agree, that our beds are the most comfortable and we spared no expense in selecting the best beds available. . We also pride ourselves on the cleanliness of the unit.

About Dick and Kim Rogers

Dick, a retired Homicide detective. Kim is a retired corporate executive. We came to the Central Coast to farm organically. We did this for fifteen years and at the same time operated Hollyhock Farms Bed and Breakfast. We retired from all that and assumed the life of the fully retired. That didn't last long as we have a beautiful Bungalow that is just begging for visitors. So, we're back in the fold as a Vacation Rental.

Dick and Kim Rogers purchased this bungalow in 1994

Why Dick and Kim Rogers chose Templeton

Back in the mid-ninties, We realized that the hustle and bustle of the city was wearing us out. The search was on. We visited virtually every county in the state. San Luis Obispo County won out. When we were operating the Bed and Breakfast, many of our guests marveled at how "complete"our lives had become and, not surprisingly, they took up the search and relocated to San Luis Obispo County. It is, simply put, Valhalla.

What makes this bungalow unique

Take a look at the photos and say, Why Not? We are on a beautiful piece of land with views and sunsets that are superb. When we go to bed, there are no cars honking, no sirens and, no arguments next door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Oh, what a time we had! Kolleen and Larry were exceptional guests. They not only left the Bungalow spotless, but came to our party for "Prime Time" and we spent hours under the stars tasting some of Paso Robles' fine port. We're looking forward to their next visit...soon. Thanks, guys.

  • 5 of 5

The view in the photo is really this breathtaking in person. We enjoyed wine on the deck in the evening and coffee in the morning. We couldn't get enough of this location! The bungalow is decorated super cute and has everything you need. We have already booked our next trip back to this bungalow and can't wait!!! The owners, Dick and Kim, are truly the nicest people, and we look forward to seeing them again on our next trip:)

Beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

This property has a wonderful view and a great yard. The deck is perfect for reading a book or sipping wine at the end of the day with friends. Inside is nice and cozy. Dick and Kim have a few of the necessary supplies in the kitchen which was nice. It was a very enjoyable weekend.

A wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This place is pure delight! A perfect place to spend the evenings after a day of wine tasting. The view is spectacular with horses and deer coming down the hill in the evening. It is so peaceful with no traffic and neighbors at a far distance. Only the birds waking yo up in the morning. The kitchen is fully stocked with spices, plenty of pots and pans, and coffee! We will definitely come back again and again!

Loved it!

Beautiful home and property. Very quiet and private. Hope to visit again. Very clean! Planned to go out but ended up cooking in because we didn't want to miss the sunset.

Beautiful, quiet and clean!

  • 5 of 5

Dick and Kim Rogers have created a very special place for people to stay. This bungalow is spacious, immaculate, comfortable and relaxing. We go to Paso every year with our friends and this is by far the best place we've ever stayed in. My only hesitation in writing this review is sharing this hidden gem with everyone else! Kim and Dick have thought of almost everything to make your stay a wonderful experience. We arrived late on a Friday evening and they had the place all comfy with the heat on and lights lit to make our arrival easy. Top that off with a welcome bottle of delicious Pinot Noir from a neighboring winery and homemade cookie bars and we felt like we were staying with friends. We felt complete privacy during out stay so for those worried about being on the same property as the owner, fear not. The main house is up the hill and you will truly feel alone. We enjoyed coffee in the morning on the patio and a glass of wine and the beautiful sunset in the evening. We will be back!
