Spectacular View in the Middle of Wine Country: Private 1-Bedroom Guesthouse

Atascadero, California

This small, 1-bedroom, 1-bath hideaway can sleep 2 people comfortably. It is situated in the hills of west Atascadero on the backside of the coastal mountains, high above the valley that stretches for miles. It is perched in the oak trees making this a spectacular, private, “tree-house” setting.

In addition to stunning views, this apartment is located in the heart of wine country with easy access to the central coast beaches, hiking trails, and restaurants. Paso Robles, with over 300 wineries is 15 minutes away, and San Luis Obispo is a 25-minute drive. Avila Beach, Cayucos Beach, Morro Bay, and Cambria are approximately 20-30 minutes away.

Airy and cozy, this place is newly remodeled with all new stainless steel appliances - dishwasher, microwave and stove, granite counters, tile flooring, fireplace, AC, flat-screen TV with DVD player and a queen-size bed and full pull-out bed (in case 2 people want separate beds). The outdoor patio overlooks a million-dollar view and a place to watch the wildlife; a perfect place to relax for a quiet morning coffee or sip the local wine while watching the beautiful sunset.

Owners, Bill and Paula, are retired educators and world travelers. They will be glad to give you suggestions about special places to visit and things to do in the area. With advanced notice they can arrange a driver for you to go wine tasting. This is a place you will want to come back to as often as possible.

    We really enjoyed our time at Paula and Bill's guest house in Atascadero. The guesthouse looked just like the pictures posted on VRBO. It was the perfect size for us. We were visiting Paso Robles on our trip and it was a very hot weekend. When we arrived at the guesthouse it was noticeably cooler, with a nice breeze. We did not even need to run the A/C! We really enjoyed the peaceful serenity and beautiful views at the patio during the early mornings and at sunset. We look forward to staying here again in the future!

    This property is small but everything a couple or single would need. Very comfortable bed. View of Atascadero foothills is amazing. Abundant wildlife, deer, turkeys, hawks, squirrels. Close to so many things. We went to Morro Bay twice. It’s about a 20 minute drive. Only negatives were not too comfortable sofa and some construction noise from building next door. Mostly a great experience for the price.

    The first thing I noticed was the view from the deck. Stunning! The property is small, but comfortable and well appointed. I found the bed comfortable as well, and I'm pretty picky. The property is attached the owner's house, but is at the end and facing away, so it has a feeling of real privacy. I stayed here for a solo meditation retreat, so I never left the unit over the 3 days I was there. It was quiet, peaceful, and meditating on the back deck in front of that view was rejuvenating. The only flaw I found was that you can easily hear the refrigerator when it turns on since there isn't really room for a door on the bedroom. I'm a heavy sleeper so it didn't bother me at all, but it might if you're a light sleeper. I'll definitely be coming back again.

    From the moment my husband and I set eyes on the beautiful surroundings, we felt rejuvenated. The website description and pics are a small enticement to what awaits you. You will see deer, turkeys, woodpeckers and beauty while staying at Bill and Paula's cottage. While staying there, we had a health emergency. I had to call 911 for my husband. Needless to say, I was stressed and worried. My angels were Bill and Paula. Their presence gave me the support I needed. My husband had to stay overnight in the hospital. The morning I was to leave, Paula came to the cottage and offered her assistance. Bill loaded the luggage and all our belongings in the car. Bill and Paula also took our bikes off of the car bike rack and stored them on their property until my husband was released from the hospital. I truly don't know how I would have managed those days without Bill and Paula's help. They are a wonderful and compassionate couple. I will never forget their kindness! So, if you are looking for serenity, beauty, comfort and security---this cottage is for u.

    This was our first time staying at this type of property in the Paso Robles area. The property was beautifully maintained, and the views from the patio were amazing. Our accommodations were excellent and the host provided items that we weren’t expecting (coffee, creamer, iron and ironing board to name a few). The host was easy to communicate with and gave instructions for anything we needed to know. We will definitely stay here again in the future.

    Very clean guest house right outside wine-country. The kitchen had all the utensils that were needed to cook meals each night after wine-tasting. When you walk out the front door there are unreal views of the valleys surrounding the place. It is great for a weekend away. Was chilly when we stayed and the unit had 2 heaters (once is a faux-fireplace) that was quick to warm the place up. Would 100% stay again.

    Similar to others, it's the location and view that really sells this guest house. Such a variety of beautiful scenery (and temperature) within easy drives. Even did the Sequoia NP in one day - we thought it was well worth the drive (~3 hours one way). Owners were not on site during our week, but were attentive via emails or texts, nonetheless.

    We stayed at this very cute tiny house as a base to visit wine country. We thoroughly enjoyed this property and especially enjoyed the view and watching the wildlife ~~ turkeys, deer, and many acorn woodpeckers. It was a great base for visiting Edna Valley wineries. The only suggestion for the future would be to have a small cooler available to pack a picnic for the day.

    Bill and Paula’s little retreat is a perfect slice of paradise. Quiet, clean, a beautiful view, and everything you need in accommodations. Within 10 minutes to everything anyone would need. Our hosts respected our privacy and even kept us informed of Paula needing to be out of town with Bill being home if we needed anything. For travelers with 2 people, it’s just right. No doubt about it, would stay again!

    My husband and I stayed for two nights. Early morning coffee on the porch with awesome views and deer. More deer in the evenings. Little fireplace heats the place well and the kitchen had everything we needed. I would suggest bringing your own pillows as the four on the bed are completely flat otherwise our stay was wonderful!

    Just what it advertised, Spectacular view, quiet and peaceful.

    We enjoyed the nice, clean property and did not want to leave the deck overlooking gorgeous views. We saw several deer, wild turkeys, and lots of woodpeckers. All the amenities we needed were provided. It was fine for us, but the shower is small and may be difficult for someone with mobility issues. Would definitely stay again! Thanks Paula and Bill!

    My husband and I spent three wonderful nights in this small apartment overlooking beautiful hills near Paso Robles. Each day we went out exploring and wine tasting, eager to get back to our oasis on the hill. We ate breakfast and a dinner outside on the patio, where we watched deer walk by and quail in the field across the way. We were so lucky to have a family of acorn woodpeckers nesting in the oak outside the door. We watched the adults come and go feeding the babies we could hear cheeping inside. The kitchen is well equipped with everything we needed for simple dinners (no oven) and breakfasts. Quiet nights were restful in the comfy bed. We've already recommended it to friends and will consider ourselves lucky if we can go back one day.

    Amazing location!!

    This was an amazing location with a beautiful view. It was exactly what my husband and I needed. The guesthouse was clean, quiet and equipped with everything we needed. I loved that they provided coffee and tea, and that it was equipped with a fridge, stove , microwave, toaster oven and kettle. We slept in on both days and made our own breakfast. Paula and Bill were very friendly, helpful and easygoing. We definitely will book this place again without question and will recommend it to anyone that's headed that way. Thank you again Paula and Bill for a wonderful stay.

    Owners were very responsive. Everything was clean and true to description

    Lovely little space for 2 people for a few days of wine touring. Much better value $ on the weekends than hotels in Paso Robles. Bed is quite comfy, and we felt the bedroom was slightly bigger than the pictures suggest. All areas were very clean and well-kept, including the bathroom. Doesn't look old or run down at all..our guess is the owners re-invest $$ to keep it looking tip-top. All appliances operational; plenty of kitchen supplies/accessories. The small patio really has a spectacular view, and is a great place to hang out with wine/cheese/apps as long as the summer sun isn't beating down DIRECTLY on it at mid-day. Most of the time there is a nice breeze. No A/C, but it never felt HOT or stuffy inside...even in June. Full access to DirecTV, DVD player. Couch folds out to a bed, but I think 3 people is a squeeze here...1-2 is perfection. Property is tucked several back roads off the highway which = super-quiet but slightly longer commute times. Watch out for deer when you're driving...they're everywhere! The towns of SLO and Paso are both reachable in 30min. Great experience. We would go back...and we are picky, lol.

    Beautiful, quiet location! Spectacular view!

    This was a great find. The house was perfect for 2 and a great central location for the entire Central Coast area. The weather kind of put a damper on our trip but it was nice to have a beautiful little house to stay in rather than a hotel. The views were beautiful. Just wish we could have explored the area a little more. Next time. Definitely will be back!

    If you are looking for a few days away with your partner with the best view we saw of the area, solitude, a comfortable place to lay your head at night, and everything you need in the kitchen, then stop looking and book this guest cottage. Paula and Bill were wonderful, helping us prior to our arrival with all our needs and were here to greet us when we pulled in late on the first night. Enjoyed watching the wildlife within feet of the cottage while sipping our coffee and the roads around were a great place for a morning run. We hated to leave but look forward to coming back again

    Private hideaway in the hills

    5/5 Stayed Aug 14, 2016
    Submitted Sep 2, 2016

    First let me say that as we were packing up to leave the guesthouse we were already talking about coming back. It was wonderful to wake up, get a cup of tea, and sit out on the patio and watch the woodpeckers in the trees or the family of quails running by. The evenings were spent with a glass of wine watching the sun set, hoping to see the small family of deer as they were out foraging. If we didn't know the guesthouse was connected to the main house we would swear we were the only people there. It felt like our own private hideaway. We met the hosts, Bill & Paula, our first day there and they were very friendly and had great suggestions for dining and wineries. The guesthouse was exactly as shown in pictures. It's a small space but perfectly comfortable for two adults to stay in. The mattress was comfortable and my husband and I had no problems sleeping at night. The decor was nice and one could relax, get comfortable, and forget you're not in your own house. The house was very clean with plenty of towels and pillows. Originally, I was hesitant to book this property because I am very much a beach person and we always stay somewhere near the ocean. I let my husband talk me into staying here and I'm so glad he did. First, the price of the guesthouse would have paid for an average quality hotel room and we were able to relax much more than if we had stayed in a hotel. We were able to go grocery shopping for breakfast goodies and snacks and save a few dollars vs. dining out for all meals. Secondly, we were a short drive to Cambria, Morro Bay, or Avilla Beach. We were close to any of our usual haunts we vist when we come down to the central coast. And lastly, did I mention how peaceful it was? It's hard to relax when you're sitting on a bed in a hotel room. We would sit on the porch and watch the sunset and listen to the birds. There were no bugs to worry about and no traffic noises. This is definitely a place to go to get away.

    Lovely guesthouse.

    Bill and Paula were great hosts. Just ask them if you need to go places in the area. This area is very strategic so me and my wife were able to explore Cambria, Cayucos, Morro Bay, Avila Beach, Pismo Beach and San Luis Obispo in two days. Paso Robles wine country is only 15 min away, but we did not include it in our itinerary because we will need an extra day to explore it. There are too many activities you can do. As for us we did hiking, walk the beaches, shopping, food trips, etc. The tree house is a home for us and we had everything we needed. Try having coffee on the deck in the morning and watch the deer and the birds hover around the trees or a glass of wine in the late afternoon. What a way to relax and forget about the busy world.

    If you want center of town, this isn't it. It's about 10 minutes off freeway into the hills. But if you are the type who is out and about and then wants a pretty peaceful place (well the morning birds can be a bit noisy, but the deer are pretty darn quiet) to return to - bingo! Atascadero location makes it easy to chose going south to SLO/Edna Valley, coastal towns from Morro to Cambria (even Hearst if desired) and north to Paso Robles and Templeton for wine, food, outdoor fun. Why 4 not 5? Cottage has basics - no oven but there is a BBQ available. It is small so we found ourselves moving stuff around - not a lot of space to unpack and put away. Also, if you have scent sensitivities there were a couple wicking air fresheners and scented laundry detergent. Otherwise this place is a perfect blend of amenities, location, and price. The owners were gone most of our stay and in there absence they have a lovely neighbor who assists them and made sure we were settled. We did meet them on our way out and as eveyone else has stated - warm, friendly and genuinely concerned that you have a nice stay. We booked last minute ad they responded promptly - from their own vacation! Highly recommend

    My mom and I traveled to Atascadero for a weekend. Super cute little apartment with great use of space. It's small, but doesn't feel small because of all the natural light. The view is pretty amazing, and we saw lots of wildlife passing by. Bill and Paula were very friendly and they gave us some passes for free tastings at two of the local wineries (both of which we used!). If we ever come back to the area we will definitely stay here again.

    This was a delightful place for us to headquarter while attending a wedding, touring the area, and just relaxing. It's very private and quiet. The owners were away, so we had the large property (not the main house) to ourselves. (Their friend Laurie checked with us to make sure everything was alright.) The apartment is small, but it works. It had all the essentials. There were birds--above and below us, a doe with triplets, and big oaks framing the views. The bed was comfortable and there were adequate blankets. It tends to be windy on the hill, but that helped keep the apartment cool, and we still read outside behind the glass windscreen. We had occasional problems negotiating the TV system, so some further instructions might be helpful. The wifi was slow to come up for our 3 Apple devices, so you may need to be patient. We'd definitely stay here again if we have the opportunity and have no hesitation in recommending it.
