Charming

We stayed in the cottage and loft for the weekend and had a lovely time. We enjoyed the tranquil scenery over looking the vineyard. The cottage is charming. I loved the decor and all of the little details. Nancy and Owen are the perfect hosts. They had little snacks and drinks waiting for us on arrival. The kitchen is wonderful. We made breakfast and dinner each day. The pots and utensils are great, just like home! They even had ziploc bags and foil to make putting away left overs easy! Honestly, these two have thought of everything! It was a dream weekend getaway! I can’t wait to do it again.

Love the Loft

The cottage is such a nice place with very thoughtful amenities secluded in a vineyard. The location is close to town in the foothills, the views at the cottage is really nice. You won't be disappointed, we are looking forward to book our next visit! I would highly recommend staying at this place.

Wow

“WOW. What a fantastic home! Nancy and Owen were very accommodating hosts. I was unsure of what time we would be getting in and Nancy was very kind to offer a later check in. Their home is stunning and the grounds are beautiful. The guest house space is lovely- impeccably well kept, and spotless. It is quiet enough to be restful, and near enough to town to pursue activities. Coffee, tea, snacks, chilled beverages, and beautiful handpicked flowers provided. Plenty of clean towels. The bed was comfortable and the shower was exquisite. Everything felt brand new! We especially enjoyed the deck overlooking the vineyards. There was also a helpful guidebook with local spots that our hosts recommended. Overall, a wonderful stay, with thoughtful, homey touches and great hosts. 10/10 recommend- thank you Nancy and Owen!!!!!”

Birthday Celebration

This was our second time to the Grapestake Cottage. It was delightful as ever. The accommodations were so inviting that we didn't want to leave.

Very special stay

We rented out the entire Grapestake Cottage (Cottage Suite and Loft) with another couple. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Nancy and Owen were outstanding hosts - thoughtful, helpful and unobtrusive. They have a beautiful property. The cottage and loft are cozy, clean and expertly designed and decorated. All the amenities and details contributed to a luxurious stay. The location is truly fantastic, not far from Paso Robles downtown or many of the top wineries of the region. From the cottage, you will wake up among the grapevines to beautiful views of the surrounding vistas. We would highly recommend to anyone looking for a getaway.

Lovely stay

What a lovely stay we had. The Cottage was the perfect spot to spend our anniversary. Nancy and Owen were wonderful hosts and all the little special touches did not escape our attention. We will definitely come back.

Paso Robles: Getting Comfortable at Grapestake Cottage and Vineyards

Oh dear me, what kind of karma do I have? Apparently the best. I’m sitting at a dining table, in a one bedroom cottage, set apart from a large estate, perusing an antique piano turned into a display case, a couch and two armchairs – that all recline – a beautiful modern kitchen area with everything you could possibly need for a welcome stay – from coffee maker to teapot, corkscrew to sweet and salty snacks and a large fireplace, television, another seating area…and that’s just in the front room. (Ed’s taking a nap in the bedroom so we may get there later.) I am just starting this article and it’s slow going as I find my eyes drifting to one of many windows where the sun has begun to set behind the patio, garden and vineyards. If this isn’t my heaven then I don’t know what is. ## The sun has now set, but before it grows too dark I see little bitty lights in the tree on our patio. I’m itching to go out and sit at the table and open a bottle of wine. But we’re in Paso Robles. And since Grapestake Cottage is so inviting, I forget for a minute that I have winery appointments. I made a quick evaluation of our calendar and decide that on at least one of our nights, Sunday, we will be bringing in a pizza, opening one of the many wines we’ve purchased to enjoy on the patio, watch that sunset again, and then retreat inside when it gets cold to flip on the fireplace, take our shoes off, don one of the provided terry robes, put some popcorn in the microwave, put our feet up and get cozy. We also made sure to set some time to get to know Nancy and Owen, our hosts, a wee bit better. As far as how they treat their guests, and circling back to how we felt our accommodations were far and above the standard, Nancy explained, “I’ve traveled with Owen on many trips and have often been irritated by asking to pay for items like water bottles and snacks. So we put a lot of thought into what a guest would like that we would also appreciate.” Come check then out for yourself: https://www.grapestakecottage.com/ https://www.instagram.com/grapestakecottage/ Eve Bushman has a Level Two Intermediate Certification from the Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET), a "certification in first globally-recognized course" as an American Wine Specialist ® from the North American Sommelier Association (NASA), Level 1 Sake Award from WSET, was the subject of a 60-minute Wine Immersion video (over 15k views), authored “Wine Etiquette for Everyone” and has served as a judge for the Long Beach Grand Cru and the Global Wine Awards.

Wonderful cottage in a beautiful vineyard setting

Couldn’t ask for a better location: great views of the surrounding vineyards, valleys, and hills. The cottage is beside a cozy courtyard with gorgeous rosebushes and olive trees. Incredible sunrises and sunsets. Easy drive to many wineries for tastings and a cute downtown with good restaurants and bars. The cottage itself is charming, clean, and comfortable—manages to combine an old-fashioned feel with modern amenities. (My personal favorites: the gas fireplace and spacious shower.) Fridge and pantry well-stocked with drinks and snacks. Very restful sleeps on the luxurious bed and easy to relax in comfortable living area. Hope to be back with my wife before long!

Fab and Peaceful Stay

My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay at the cottage. The hosts were absolutely lovely and so helpful. The towels and amenities are top notch. We appreciated the snacks in the room after the wedding we were in town for. Should we ever be back in Paso, we would definitely stay here again! Highly Recommended.

Enchanting

Enchanted! That defines the experience we had at the Grapestake Cottage. It is truly a sanctuary that relieved our stress, brought comfort and gave us a break from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. It's like a fairy tale home surrounded by beautiful vineyards and glowing scenery. When the gracious owners, Owen and Nancy, told us to make ourselves at home, this was the first time that we really felt that way. We highly recommend this rare find and give it five big stars. We look forward to coming back to this magical place.
