Emily's House B & B
Ranked #12 of 30 Paso Robles B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 17, 2013

My husband and I have stayed with Vicki and Kenny at Emily's House twice now... and each time it has been so comfortable and relaxing... like going home to visit with family, but without all the awkward family drama that is sure to arise with the blood relatives. The first trip was a romantic weekend away after the hectic holiday season (I work in retail so November and December are always a flat sprint). And our second trip we invited another couple to come along and shared the hidden treasure we had discovered earlier in the year.

The rooms are well appointed, sparkling clean and charming. The beds are amazing: the perfect blend of firm mattress, thick, plush feather bed to sink into, and soft sheets that pull you into an amazing slumber... better even than a Westin "Heavenly Bed".

Vicki is a fantastic cook. She provides a varied menu for breakfast, we've had her sweet and her savory dishes, and it's hard to say which is my favorite... but her butternut squash and kale strata might just barely edge out the blueberry stuffed french toast... but only slightly. You can also arrange to have a home cooked meal and bottle of wine as part of your stay, and we've done this both trips. Vicki is passionate about fresh local produce, and uses her past experience as a personal trainer to compose well balanced, healthy meals that are still a treat to the tasebuds.

We've also had the great pleasure to be able to have a wine tour with both Vicki and with Kenny.... what a great day. We had a customized trip where they referred us to some wineries based on what we like in a wine, but also incorporated our must visits, a lovely picnic lunch and more laughter and mirth than we can remember.

I can't recommend any more highly taking the opportunity to spend some time in this lovely home. The people are warm, the food is amazing and the entire time is a pure joy. We love Emily's house and plan to return often.

Room Tip: Each of the rooms are wonderful. I'd be happy to stay again in any of them.

We chose Paso Robles for a five day trip because we wanted to enjoy a little fall good weather, wine country, and fine restaurants. Emily's House proved to be the perfect B&B to explore the town and surrounding country. Vicky, our hostess, was very solicitous of our needs, and quick to offer helpful suggestions. In a town of great food, Vicki consistently turned out memorable breakfasts, including rich French toasts, Mexican baked eggs, and a seasonal vegetable frittata. We opted for her wine tour and dinner at home and both were great experiences. The wine tour was very reasonable compared to the commercial trips and allowed us to customize the wineries we wanted to visit as well as enjoy the benefit of her experience. Lunch on the veranda at Croad was perfect! Dinner was a delicious respite from our nights out on the town. Vicki is a talented cook and she has great local materials to work with.
The setting is a century old house that has been remodeled. The bathroom was modern with a powerful shower; the decor emphasized period pieces that complemented the house. I slept well every night.
When you book for a B&B, decide whether you want to be able to walk downtown-- a very fun place with good bars and restaurants and shops, or if you want to stay in the country. We wanted to be able to get around without relying on our car and the location two blocks away from the town square was very convenient.
We will return!

Room Tip: The east room is large and has a modern bathroom. it was comfortable for a 5 day stay. Great showe...

This is a lovely place to stay - calm and peaceful yet full of charm and character. My bedroom was quiet, very comfortable and the perfect place to recover from a transatlantic flight. You get a really warm welcome here from Vicki, charming, ebullient and always happy to give help and advice as well as make the most delicious breakfasts! Just a stroll from the centre of Paso Robles and well placed to explore the surrounding vineyards it's situation is excellent. Book now!

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.

Welcoming, warm and wonderful--that aptly describes the feel good vibe of Emily's House. My husband and I recently spent two nights at Emily's House and we hated to leave. Everything was top-notch. The meals Vicki prepared were delicious and ample. Vicki even treated us to freshly baked brownies accompanied by a very nice late harvest Primitivo on our last night. The resident pets, Chloe, a miniature dachshund, and Hammy, a lovely-eyed tabby, provided spurts of entertainment. Check out Kenny's pride and joy--a 1965 GTO in pristine condition that was handed down to him by his Mom.

Last weekend (Fri-Sun) we drove to Paso Robles for a wine tasting vacation and stayed at Emily's House B&B in downtown Paso Robles. We LOVED it! The house was beautiful, the room was great, small and quaint, and the family that runs the place were amazingly nice, helpful and generous. They went out of their way to make us feel warm and welcome and even went as far as going to the store to buy me beer aafter a long hot day out in PR. Their dog; Clio was wonderful and the meals ( breakfast both days and dinner the first night) were gourmet and a delight!. We WILL return and bring friends. A great place for a family gathering or even a wedding/reception. Sunny and warm and well located to downtown, which is a walk away. A try pleasure. GO! you won't regret it.

Room Tip: get the one with the bathroom in the back of the house. great view of the back yard

We just drove back home yesterday, after a 2 night stay at Emily's House, and I can honestly say that it was better than I expected. Vicki made us feel right at home. She was very attentive and friendly, making our getaway feel genuinely personal. We came here on a Living Social deal, which included a wonderful 4 course dinner on one night, and not to mention the delicious breakfast each morning. Location can't be beat, just a few minute walk to downtown. I would definately recommend staying here. We hope to be back soon.
