Yes, my boyfriend says if I use amazing one more time in my blog, my conversations, etc. he's going to lose it. Well, I tried to come up with all these fancy titles but at the end of the day, I thought to myself what would be the first thing out of my mouth if someone asked me about Inn Paradiso. I would in my over excited voice say, "OMG! It's soooo amazing!", in a voice similar to one in "Valley Girl" circa 1983 with Nicholas Cage!

From the beginning, we had nothing but a pleasurable experience. We made our reservation with Cindy who was very helpful and walked us through the process of what we could expect. She asked for any dietary restrictions, etc. She informed us that she would be on vacation and Donna would be assisting us. We arrived a bit early to Paso and Donna graciously assisted us while I was in my frazeled - got to get out and wine taste mode...she was very patient, sweet and gave us a wonderful overview and tour of the property. The property has three rooms. We ended up staying in the Maria Sabina room which is located on the second floor of the building. There are two rooms upstairs and one downstairs. Off of our room was a lovely outdoor patio that looked out over the pool, while it's a shared patio with the other room we had the entire porch to ourselves. They had lovely vintage wicker chairs, with John Robshaw fabrics and a lovely teak bench outside. They left candles and matches outside so you could create your own ambiance. I appreciated that since I love candlelight. We would relax after being out all day with a nice glass of wine. The property itself is unique to the area. There really are no words to try to describe the property other than it's even better in person. It's hard to capture the essence of it and how magical it really feels when you are there.

The two upstairs rooms look over the main common area - you can keep the door open or closed. Our room was spotless, lovely linens and robes from John Robshaw as well as spa robes for those that like longer robes. Our bed was super comfortable. Our room had a nice shower with great water pressure with beautiful soaps. For those that like to relax there was a separate spa like tub with lovely bath salts, toiletry items, fresh rosemary, and a candle for you to relax. They stocked our room with wine glasses, fresh water daily, lovely chocolates, almond bark and nuts (assortment changed daily), a kettle, a french press for those that enjoy coffee and an assortment of teas. It also had a small refrigerator incase you needed to keep something cold. Fresh rosemary grown on the property was sprinkled throughout the room along with a vase of fresh flowers. I found these touches thoughtful and nicely done.

Breakfast was served daily. They served breakfast in the main common area on a lovely table that Steve the owner had converted from a large piece of redwood that was found on the property. Fresh flowers on the table, beautiful vintage silverware, and lovely little details for those that enjoy presentation and aesthetics. We stayed three nights - the first morning (I don't eat eggs and had only requested fruit) my boyfriend was served a "Cup of LIfe" which consisted of home made yogurt, granola and fresh fruit and an omelette (have no idea how to spell since I don't eat eggs) with fresh veggies, beans, and various items. I was served an assortment of fresh fruit which was delicious. The breakfasts for the remainder of the stay were incrediable. All the eggs are fresh, veggies from their garden, and flowers picked from their property really make it make special.

We were able to meet and spend time with the owners Steve and his girlfriend Gisela. We found them both very charming, down to earth, knowledgeable about the area and very approachable. I love to antique and only blame Steve for me spending too much money since he recommended several places to shop. Donna the Inn Keeper was friendly, warm, attentive and if you needed something she was available and helpful. We couldn't have found a warmer group of people. We really felt like we were with old friends.

We are already looking at our schedule to figure out when we can come back. This is the ideal getaway for people who are looking to relax and enjoy their surroundings. There are no tv's in the rooms or in the common area. I am a tv junky and found it a welcoming break. It's the perfect place to read, spend time with friends, your signficant other or your family. For those that like to wine taste, we found it easy to access all the wineries and in the ideal location after a long day to hop into down. Some places are further out but Inn Paradiso's location made it easy to come home and change and head into town for dinner since it was close to downtown. I know they mentioned the property is still evolving as it's been a process for them to refurbish Inn Paradiso. My only feedback as a guest would be (like one of the other reviewers) is it would be great to have a few lounge chairs and a little table by the pool for relaxing. I have no doubt this is something they will do but I selfishly am saying this because the next time - we want to be lazy and do nothing but lay by the pool and read! LOL!
Overall, this is one place not to be missed and is a breathe of fresh air for those that love design and architecture. We will definetely be coming back. While we want them to thrive in their business.....secretly, we want to keep this hidden gem to ourselves for selfish reasons.

A big thank you to Gisela, Donna and Steve for making this a memorable trip for us creating a space where we can come and relax, enjoy, and recharge our batteries. The only negative is we had to leave but the positive is we will be back. We look forward to our next visit.

Fabulous find! We went to wine country for our 25th anniversary and could not have picked a better place to spend it. The INN was everything we expected and more. Tranquil, romantic, clean, great location. Our room was wonderful; king bed with comfy linens, a fireplace and huge jacuzzi bathtub with a shower for 2! Everything was spotless and the details such as beautiful decanters filled with filtered water, the most amazing bath products, robes, large comfy pills placed in just the right places. The innkeeper, Cindy, is wonderful. She is attentive and available anytime. She prepares the most amazing organic breakfasts, served in "courses" We began with the "cup of life" a soup with herbs and fruits from their gardens, and the fresh eggs from their own chickens and the homemade yogurt.The great room is a wonderful room to sit by a beautiful fireplace, read, or just relax on the oversized couch and chairs. The antiques and collectibles all over the property is beautiful. We will be back!!!

We stayed two nights in Feb. as part of a long President's Day weekend. We had stayed here several years ago, once, when the property was under a previous owner. A nice visit, the room very nice, but the property was then in serious need of a lot of attention. The grounds were untended, the house had lots of things not working, etc.

Based on all the recent rave reviews, we decided to give Inn Paradiso another try. What an amazing transformation. The potential of this magical place has now been fully realized. The grounds are impeccable, the stonework detailing and masonry is beautiful, the house has been fully tended to with beautiful woodwork complementing the original timbers and architecture. The pool area looks most inviting as well, surely an added bonus if one is here in the heat of a Paso summer. A visual delight all around.

Cyndi has replaced Dawna as the resident hostess. She is a delight. Charming, engaging, hospitable, and accommodating. She is a wizard in the kitchen for breakfast, yogurts, spelt pancakes, oatmeal, all simple (as we had requested) but delicious, filling, and as fresh as could be. Her broth, tofu and fresh greens soup our second morning was pure magic. And, thanks to Judith for her most able assistance in the kitchen in the mornings. Oh, special kudos to Cyndi for her marinated olives in the evening.

We had the place to ourselves given our mid-week visit. The Inn has 3 rooms in total in the main guest house. Each room is well separated from the others, so even if the Inn is fully booked we expect all guests would have complete privacy. There are so many alcoves, spots to sit and simply unwind, both inside and out, that one can easily get lost in the tranquility and calm of the Inn.

And, of course, it is perfectly situated as a home base for wine touring. We most highly recommend this gem. The Inn now truly lives up to its name.

We spent a romantic week celebrating our anniversary at the Inn Paradiso. Everything about our stay was wonderful. The property is quiet and beautiful and the Inn buildings themselves have a magical feel due to the original woodwork like I have never seen before. Our stay was really made special by Donna, who prepares a gourmet organic breakfast of yogurt, granola, fresh figs, eggs, pancakes and whatever else you request! Donna and the owner Steve were gracious hosts and clued us in on which wineries and restaurants were local favorites. We can't wait to go back!

We went to Paso Robles for two nights and had the best weekend getaway ever. Where to begin? It was an aural sensation the moment we arrived -- from the golden/amber colors of the hills this time of year to the sumptuous bedding and exquisite line of bath scents, linens, and robes, it was beautiful at every turn. Steve, the owner, has the most incredible tree, a Decorative Chinese Pistachio with boughs of tiny crimson balls growing in gorgeous clusters that is surreal. We were greeted by Dawna when we arrived and she showed us around the 3-room house. It feels like an old lodge but updated and beautifully decorated with really great mid-century furniture and art. Dawna suggested an amazing Cab Franc for us once we settled in and made our stay as inviting as it could be. The next morning, Dawna made the most superb organic breakfast -she makes her own yogurt and mixes in berries, nuts, and other delicious flavors. The fresh egg omelet was incredible, the yolk a rich flavor which I mistook for butter. Dawna got the eggs from the chickens next door. Steve suggested wineries for us to visit (all excellent,) and where to go for a dip in one of the natural hot springs nearby. Starr Ranch is not to be missed. The 400 persimmon trees full of thousands of orange fruit blew us away. Our second breakfast was equally tasty and good - a warm tofu broth followed by spelt pancakes and an apple compote. If you're going to Paso Robles, there is no other place to stay than Inn Paradiso.

We spent only one night, in the Carlos Molina room, and enjoyed every minute of the experience. We were greeted at the driveway by the inn keeper and given a tour of the property. Our room was well appointed- loved the double shower and claw foot tub. The linens were luxurious and the bed was comfy. Breakfast was absolutely delicious-the best we've had at a bed and breakfast. We'll definitely come back again.

We stayed at the Inn a few weeks back and can't stop raving about it. The inn itself is architecturally stunning and the owner walked us around and showed us all the beautiful wood, iron, and stone work that was done by local craftsmen some years back. The rooms are clean, well appointed, and both romantic and relaxing- our room had a spa tub with bath salts which I was happy to use after our trip up to Paso Robles. The service is very personalized and you can tell the owners take notice of small details that will improve their guests' experience. Breakfast was beautifully prepared and we were offered a glass of wine after returning from a day out in the town. We're looking forward to coming back to Inn Paradiso soon.
