"There were 7 of us, 3 couples and 1 single, so we all had a bedroom/bath suite to ourselves, with 1 bedroom left over. 3 of the group were visiting from Italy so we enjoyed exploring the area of vineyards and olive groves, taking in a great tour of Halter Ranch underground cellars. The area is like a young version of what they are used to in Italy, and it was fun to talk about the comparisons. We all love to cook so the large kitchen, fully stocked with cookware and serving dishes, with 2 sinks and plenty of countertop space was perfect for 3-5 people working at one time. We set big platters of food on the large peninsula between the kitchen and dining room and feasted every night. The local community is a nice place to walk in the morning or evening light, with hills to get your blood pumping, views of the lake, and deer and wild turkey grazing on the properties. When we arrived on Christmas Eve, we found the home decorated beautifully and we immediately made ourselves at home with a fire, the Christmas lights and a long-awaited reunion! The interior design of this home is professionally done and the home is stocked with everything you need but your clothing and groceries. There are 2 outdoor living/eating spaces and a ping pong table which we used. This is a beautiful place to stay with a group, especially if you enjoy wine tasting, craft beer, olive oil tasting, or boutique shopping in Paso Robles. In our case we did not experience the restaurants, but heard some rave reviews from the locals. Next time!"
