My sister and I (middle-aged women) spent 2 days in Paso Robles, staying at Templeton, a short drive south. I chose Carriage Vineyards based on the reviews here and they couldn't have been more correct! The property is lovely (a tad hard to spot the sign on the road at first, but Larry tells you that in his welcoming e-mail/confirmation), sitting back off the road some ways. Altho it was rainy/misty most of the time we were there, there was enough break in the clouds the first night to see incredible stars with no light pollution! Breakfasts were all you could want from a B&B: wonderful quiche with fresh fruit, fresh OJ, and muffins. Larry recommended several wineries (with discount coupons, thank you!) which were not on our list, but we added them and could not have been happier with them. We had the vis-a-vis suite, a 2 room suite with a bathroom. Perfect for singles who want their own bed (or travelling couples). Larry was a wonderful host with great knowledge of history of his family and a keen interest in carriages (hence, the name). If you like rosemary bushes, the property abounds with them--I had to sweep my hand across them for that wonderful fragrance every day. My next visit to the area will include a return stay!
