“Lovely B & B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

My husband and I were on our first trip to the Paso Robles area and decided at the last minute to try to stay at a vineyard rather than a motel chain. So glad we did. Corinne and Marlowe were wonderful hosts and the place is beautiful. would love to come back in warmer weather to better enjoy the vineyards and the beautiful garden.
Our second night, we did a wine tasting of their wines and shared a bottle we had bought at another vineyard. Breakfasts were amazing. They run this B & B the way you wish all B & Bs were run. Absolutely delightful.

Room Tip: We stayed in the room above the "Barrel" room without en suite bathroom. Hosts were nice e...

We made last minute plans to visit Paso Robles and were fortunate to find an available room at Winemaker's Porch. Everything was perfect-- from the hosts to the rooms to the ambiance. The breakfast was truly outstanding and, best of all, I was sent off with a slice of amazing apple pie. No doubt we will return and recommend the place to our family and friends.

This place is picturesque as it sits on the edge of a beautiful vineyard. The host and hostess Marlowe and Corinne were great company when we were looking to chitchat or learn more about Paso and they were none intrusive when we wanted quiet time for ourselves. Being centrally located we were surrounded by some of Paso’s most popular wineries and just minutes away from the main plaza down town. We went for our anniversary in early December and despite the brisk nippy mornings the weather was great and we had a great time hopping from one winery to the next trying olive oils and great wines. As bed & breakfasts go this is one of the best ones we’ve stayed in. If you want an romantic central CA wine experience this B&B is where you should stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Estate Room which is on the first floor of the main house and has a great view of t...

Having stayed at B and B's across the country, I can say the Winemaker's Porch is one of the very best. Accomodations, gourmet breakfasts, advice on local restaurants and wineries to visit, private wine tasting and hors d'oevres, fresh baked cookies, beautiful setting, attention to every detail down to different dining room centerpieces each day are just some of the things we appreciated. We stayed two nights in the two beautiful rooms over the barrel room to celebrate my son's 29th birthday. Corinne and Marlowe were our excellent hosts. You will be delighted with your visit, just don't make reservations when we are lucky enough to return!

Room Tip: Bordeaux is exceptional. Burgundy is very nice and has a private bath, but it's down a flight of...

We stayed in the Burgundy Room at the Winemakers Porch and we were the only ones there. What a wonderful and special stay we had. After a couple of horrible experiences in LA the experience with Corinne and Marlowe (and their wonderful animals) was the remedy we needed to get us back on track. Corinne's breakfast each morning was something to look forward to and we were treated like royalty and nothing was too much trouble. In fact when we arrived we were invited to use the upstairs bathroom of the Bordeaux room (another gorgeous room with a kitchen), rather than the bathroom downstairs. We were provided with suggestions of things to do and also introductions to various win makers in the area by Marlowe each day as well as hand delivered coffees to our door each morning.

Allowing us to bring the two friends we were travelling with but who stayed elsewhere to our private wine tasting was just that extra touch that makes a place excellent and the wines and snacks are superb. We were so impressed with the wines we bought a few to take with us on our continuing journey. Thanks so much Corinne and Marlowe.

The Winemaker's Porch is a simply amazing place to spend time while in Paso Robles. Corinne and Marlow are the most gracious hosts, Corrinne's breakfasts are delicious gourmet meals, and their B&B is beautiful!

The Winemaker's Porch at Frances James Winery is simply one of the best places I've stayed at. Period. Yes, the grounds are lovely, the views spectacular, the proximity to the "Backroads Wineries" ideal, but the 2 things that make this place extra special are Corrinne and Marlowe. The couple who own and operate the B&B.
We always stay in the Estate room, which is attached to the house. The view is gorgeous, as you get to overlook the vineyard, and since it's close to the kitchen (not too close to be noisy) you get to wake up to the smell of the wonderful breakfast they create every day. Seriously......really good breakfast.
Our first time there, I actually proposed to my wife in the dining room at breakfast and we went back for our 1st anniversary.
Another great part of staying there is sometimes Marlowe will invite you to his barrel room for a private tasting of his creations, which are very tasty. And when you visit the "Backroads Wineries" (which in my opinion are much better than the big wineries) and you mention where you're staying, you're instantly part of the cool kids club.
So stop reading this far-too-lengthy review and book your room already!

Room Tip: Choose the Estate Room for the best experience.
