This was our very first time at this B&B and we just loved it! Philip is a great guy, there isn't anything he can't do! From B&B owner to winemaker to great chef to musician, he's done it all and it was wonderful to be on the receiving end of all his talents. First, the place itself is a little piece of heaven. It is about a 20 min drive from 101, up picturesque and windy hills until you reach the very top where the house has spectacular views out toward Morro Bay and the surrounding hills. You really feel like you are away from it all. Our room was comfy and had a little patio area. There is no TV in the room but we honestly didn't miss it one bit. It was nice to soak in the large tub and read a good book in the comfy queen bed. The common areas are great to hang out in as well, particularly the outdoor areas. Philip prepares a great breakfast each morning and you have your choice of eating it inside or outside. We ended up on the outside patio with the great views, chatting with our fellow guests. There are 3 rooms and even though they are near each other, we never heard our neighbors and it was all very quiet. It would be great to reserve all 3 rooms with friends so you can have the whole place to yourselves. We might do this next time!
Philip is also a wonderful winemaker! We stopped by his tasting room in Downtown Paso and just loved his wines. Even if you don't stay here, definitely visit the room and give his great wines a try.
It may be a little bit more of a trek to get to Paso (it's another 10 mins up 101 once you get down to the freeway ) but it is SO worth it!! The drive itself goes by so quickly because there are so many things to see along the way, especially the Texas longhorns! Phillip's hospitality, great cooking and fantastic place make it a very memorable getaway. We will be back! Thanks Philip!!
