This 130 year old charmer has the ambience to make sure you take your busy life down a few notches. The house was built by the founder of Templeton and is just captivating. Only for a few guests as the owner now takes care of you personally so has limited excess visitors you can be sure of being graciously attended... More

We were greeted warmly upon arrival and delighted with the comfort and privacy of the room. The breakfast was delightful and we enjoyed a nice visit with another couple visiting the area. I highly recommend. We were able to walk to local restaurants and visit local winery stops nearby.

Came up from Redondo Beach for a few days of wine imbibing and really, really enjoyed our stay in the Garden View Room at Dianne's delightfully cozy and historic Inn. The 130 year old Victorian is stunningly kept and decorated, a very timely, classy and subtle run on Halloween. Our room was very comfortable, including the bed. Nightly, I soaked... More

Relaxing stay in this charming home. Dianne has decorated with loving care and a sense of wit (bird's nest on a candle holder for example). We were upstairs in the main house with a smaller sitting room attached -- could have had our granddaughter with us! The breakfasts were delicious, coffee excellent and accessible when we awakened. The location is... More

Very relaxing stay at a beautiful b&b. Diane was a wonderful host, breakfast was amazing, room clean and bed comfortable. Private entrance was ideal as our room was in the main part of the house. Highly recommend a stay hear especially if doing a wine tour. Great value for money.

We had a lovely room in the main house downstairs. The bed was very comfortable, and the room was nicely decorated with a sitting area. We loved the claw foot tub with shower. We used the little patio after a day of wine tasting. You are very close to all the winery’s in Paso Robles. There were two very good... More

Last weekend, my husband and I traveled from Monterey to Paso Robles for the town's annual "Lavender Festival". We have stayed and many B & B's before, and, frankly, are somewhat wary as we enjoy our privacy and have often been disappointed with the suffocating hosts. HOWEVER, we are so thrilled that we took a chance on the Country House!... More

I stayed at the Country House Inn during the last weekend of September and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The room was clean and cute, and granted, it doesn't offer all of the amenities of a nice hotel room, (ie, bring your own shampoo/conditioner and hair dryer, plus no TV), but I was still very comfortable. The property is quaint and... More

While this wasn't a terrible experience, we were dissappointed by the room. The actual experience didn't match the website pictures and description. Also the room was missing a few ammenities like a hair dryer and shampoo. It also looked like they were behind on the overall maintenance of the property. The breakfast was good.

This was our second stay at the Country House Inn. We spent 2 nights each time. This place is charming, beautifully decorated and in a great quiet location. The hostess, Dianne Garth is a great cook and a really nice person to get to know. The Inn is beautifully decorated. We are already planning our 3rd stay in April when... More
