I wanted a getaway from the hustle and bustle of every day life so I booked this cute B&B through airbnb.com. Valerie and John Blasingame's house (and company) fitted my needs completely!
Valerie and John gave me the perfect balance of solitude and company during 2 day/1 night trip there. They did not bother me as I sat in their back yard for 5 hours just absorbing the fresh air, thinking, and watching the sunset. However, we had wonderful conversations at night and also hours of talking during breakfast the next morning. John's secret French toast is to die for!!
The location is very close to Temecula's wineries as well as Old Town (~5 minute drive). They have a beautifully decorated home suited to the season. The room was complete with snacks (and homemade cookies!), plenty of closet space, robes, and blankets as well as a book with brochures and coupons for Temecula. You also get your own personal back doors to the yard. The bathroom also had many essentials that you may need (toothbrush, comb, deodorant, etc). If you fancy dogs, you'll love Coco, the little Yorkie who loves to give you kisses and let you know you're not alone. :)
I believe one of the most important aspects of staying at a B&B is feeling like you're "at home". Valerie and John were very much like two very loving relatives who knew when to be beside me and when to let me have my alone time. I definitely did not feel like I was intruding on them or they on me.
Thanks Valerie and John!!
