This bed and breakfast is in the heart of California wine country. The grounds are beautiful with a vineyard and olive orchard. The host, Larry is there if you need him but otherwise you feel like you are home. He has a wonderfully carriage collection and two beautiful horses to pull them. He was very helpful planning trips to the... More

We stayed 3 nights in the Vis-A-Vis room, which was wonderful. A quiet stay at a very nice BnB. Lots of great advice on wineries and places to eat. The breakfasts are wonderful and nicely presented. Make sure to walk over to the actual carriage house and look at this collection. Thank You Larry.

Loved this Bed & Breakfast in the wine country of Paso Robles. It's kind of off the beaten path, but so worth staying there. Loved the Carriage House display of antique carriages and being able to hike around the property and see the awesome views from the top. You won't be disappointed!! Great breakfast and Larry is such a personable... More

We really enjoyed our 1 night stay at Carriage B&B. It is in the middle of no where. However, there are many vineyards near by. Larry is a great host and served a nice hot breakfast. He told a few jokes while we ate breakfast. He was very helpful in guiding us to visit some vineyards and suggested dinner places,

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.
