Vicki and Kenny have the perfect personality for innkeepers, for it is their warm and welcoming demeanor that makes the experience what it is. Anyone can stay in an old house, but when you have people who are eager to make you comfortable, have decorated their home with loving care and touches of history and also are great cooks and hosts, that's what makes it special! Vicki prepared a delicious dinner our first night and was nice enough to share her wonderful chicken fennel soup recipe, which my husband is cooking today. We spent 3 fun days at Emily's House earlier this month, for a little break on our drive home from San Diego. Since we are frequent visitors to wine country in Napa, Sonoma and Livermore, we decided to visit an area we weren't familiar with. Kenny escorted us on a fantastic wine tour, complete with box lunches, and we visited 5 wineries as well as an olive oil tasting. It was quite a treat to have someone else do the driving (while we did the wine-tasting!) and he filled us in on the background of the area. Vicky and Kenny could answer any questions we had about the area, gave us tips on restaurants and even made a reservation for us on our second night. The location can't be beat, just minutes from the cute town square. We hope to return in the near future.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This farmhouse of the past is ready for you to enjoy. Built in the tradition of a bygone era but infused with the modern conveniences of today. This 4 bedroom and 2 bath home was carefully styled to create an atmosphere reflecting the warmth and history of a vintage home. Emily's house is located in the National Award-Winning Main Street City of Paso Robles. While visiting Paso Robles, take advantage of the numerous activities including gourmet dining, wine tasting, and antique/specialty shops. During your stay at Emily's House, be sure to take a drive and explore the canyons leading you to charming wineries, Lakes Nacimiento and San Antonio, ending with the beautiful central coast. Emily's House has a gourmet kitchen boasting a beautiful table that seats up to 14 people. This is the perfect kitchen for those of you whom love to cook (we offer complimentary cooking supplies). The kitchen is light and airy, bringing the outdoors in, with large windows and french doors leading you to the rear deck and the large fenced in backyard. Because this house has such a wonderful sense of warmth and family, we have choosen to call it "Emily's House," after our first-born granddaughter. We have been told it is known as the "Happy House" by the original owners. We look forward to carrying on that tradition as well. It is our hope that our guests experience comfort, elegance, and an unforgettable place to call home. Perhaps someday you too will fall in love with beautiful Paso Robles! If you are in town, give us a call...we would be happy to give you a tour. Or maybe even little Emily and her gang could show you around! ... more less
