Top notch B&B located in the midst of a vineyard - nice trail to walk and birdwatch. (Saw a pair of Varied thrushes, bluebirds, a Northern flicker and 8 other species on a short walk.) Lots of wineries for tasting Rhone varietals and California Italian varietals nearby. Beautiful fall color. Comfy beds, scrumptious breakfast, helpful host Larry. Don't miss a... More

We really enjoyed this place. It was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast and we were so impressed with the lodging and food. The manager was even kind enough to allow our two young daughters to stay as well. Very hospitable and a must stay if you are in the central coast.

Thank you for your kind words. It was a delight to have your family here! We normally do not accept children under eight but when you called and we had no other guests that a child would be a concern, I welcomed your reservation. Glad I did, your girls are sweethearts!! More

Second time that we have stayed here and can't say enough about what a lovely venue it is--quiet, great breakfast, nice room, and very accommodating/friendly host in Larry--who makes you truly feel as a guest in his home. He gave us great recommendations for dinner and vineyards to visit, too! Definitely worth a repeat visit!

We spent a week in the suite in the middle of the vineyard. What views!! Totally an enjoyable experience! We enjoyed sitting at our outdoor table to take in the vineyard views. The stars at night were amazing, away from the city lights. We did have a good view of the lights of Paso at night. Great value and service... More

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
