CV is in Templeton, CA, in the heart of the Paso Robles wine country, a region that is competing with Napa and has some 265 wineries. The owners, Larry and Geraldine (Gerry) Smyth, are grape farmers (not vintners). They grow grapes for sale to wineries. They are out in the country, and have vineyards, olive orchards, a few horses, and... More

My wife and I stayed at the Carriage Inn B&B for a couple of days during our honeymoon trip through California Wine Country and found this B&B nestled in the vineyards of Paso Robles to be a most wonderful and charming place to stay, especially fitting for a honeymoon in our opinion. Larry, the inn keeper, not only runs the... More

My husband and I absolutely loved our long-weekend getaway in Templeton, staying at this lovely B & B! Charming rooms decorated in Victorian style, with antiques, and super clean and quaint! Quiet and relaxing, just awesome! Each room is named after a carriage, and on our last morning there, we even decided to take Larry's real-life horse-drawn carriage ride through... More

We had an excellent stay with Larry and his crew. The accommodation's were exactly what we preferred. Larry was very knowledgeable and helpful with anything we needed to know or cared to see in the area around us. The grounds were very well kept and beautiful. We met some very nice people on our stay and would highly recommend a... More

We were searching for a spot to stop between LA and San Francisco and found this little gem. It was just off the path close to Paso Robles. The room was spacious and pleasant. Larry met everyone in the morning and had the staff prepare an outstanding breakfast. He allowed us to tour the vineyards and walk around the olive... More

Great stay half an hour from the coast. All was very good an so nice. Good wine and many things to visit over there. Not very cheap for a B&B but it is more a hotel than a B&B and the money is good invested! If we are at the westcoast we come back to you. Morro bay is also... More

We decided rather last minute to visit Central Coast Wine Country and were concerned we wouldn't be able to find availability at a B&B that was nice and affordable. Based upon other Trip Advisor reviews, we checked out Carriage Vineyards B&B and were delighted to find weekday availability that matched our needs. We have stayed at other B&Bs over the... More

My husband & I stayed at Carriage Vineyards to celebrate my birthday. We were looking for a quiet and peaceful retreat. We stayed at the coachman's studio, which had AMAZING views and was very private. The breakfast was delicious and we were very close all the back road wineries and fairly close to downtown Paso Robles. Larry was a great... More

We booked here for the weekend of the Firestone-Walker Invitational Beer Festival. The location is a little out of the way, about 10 miles from Paso Robles, but quite nice to be in the middle of an actual working vineyard. Having breakfast served each morning and conversing with other couples who come from far and wide is great, you really... More

My husband and I stayed at Carriage Vineyards in April for the second time and our experience was just as great as the first time. Larry is wonderful. He is there when you need something but also gives his guests privacy. I appreciate this. We stayed in the studio and it was wonderful. The studio was clean and had great... More
