“Don't go here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

I'm hoping that will keep people away since this really is the type of place you want to keep a secret. We really have never had such a wonderful experience at a B&B...anyplace. Not only is it set in fabulous surroundings (the views are indescribable), but the house itself is a contemporary architectural masterpiece. Somehow it combines concrete, wood, and metal and manages to exude a rare country charm and coziness that is truly unique. The innkeepers Ron and Felisa are the absolute role models for perfection. We felt like friends by the time our short stay was over. We cannot say enough about our stay at Comus House. We will only stay here when we visit the area again.

Room Tip: The Janis has a nice soft bed, it's a bit smaller and has no windows that open at night. The Di...

Our stay at Comus house was simply divine. As fairly seasoned travelers, Comus House is definitely a solid five stars in luxury and comfort bed and breakfast point of view.
First impression: WoW. Main door opens and you are invited into the living room. High ceilings with floor to ceiling windows. Very grandiose and your eyes are instantly drawn into outside. Vineyard is what you see and you feel very serene and relaxed.

We stayed 2 nights: dirt worshipper and pelletiere. Both are very clean (important factor for us), and great, each with their own appeals. Dirt worshipper has corner windows so you get a great view of the vineyard owned by Denner, and it is bigger room. Firm mattress is exactly how we prefer our bed. Water pressure in shower is good. Although, we later found out that Pelletiere bath is superior as it has shower and separate tub with even stronger water pressure. Comus offers shampoo, conditioner, and in Pelletiere room, you get bonuses like bath salt and bubble bath. Pelletiere room is on the smaller side but we did not mind this. Actually, we prefer this room (although the mattress is softer, but that is personal preference).

During our stay, breakfast was served outside in the patio which we loved. Everything was yummy and filling. Table presentation was a bonus. You can make your own coffee (with the fancy expresso-like-machine) and snack on the delicious blueberry or chocolate with banana sliced pound cake while you wait for your breakfast to be served. I love their wine hour as well. Since they market themselves as B&B, food needs to be quite good, and we think they succeeded in this area. Comus House does have an infinity pool and I believe jacuzzi overlooking the vineyard, but due to city's regulation, guests are now allowed to use them. I know it's very tempting but guests who enjoy their stay should respects the rules.

The innkeepers, Felicia and Ron were friendly, approachable and gave us tips on wineries in Paso Robles. We would definitely come back to try more wineries and would stay here again.

Room Tip: 3 rooms (pelletiere, dirt worshipper and ditch digger) get lovely natural light and faces the breath...

It literally has taken me a week to write this review because this is a place I'm not sure I want to share! And I've been told I'm not the only one who stays here and feels the same way! We were so lucky to stay at the Comus House after friends of ours invited us for a surprise 50th birthday party. If first impressions are everything, then this place is it. From the winding driveway up the hill and through the vines to the detailed custom architecture to the gorgeous infinity pool overlooking the vineyard covered hillsides, this is heaven. Our friends couldn't get over how incredibly peaceful and relaxing this place is. And to add to this heaven on earth? Ron and Felisa are the gold standard (platinum?) when it comes to the perfect hosts. This is no little country B&B, this place exudes style. From the tantalizing gourmet breakfasts in the morning to the fabulous 4 o'clock wine and cheese spreads, to the handwritten thank you note we received when we returned home, we were delighted with their incredible attention to detail. They love what they do and it shows. We were "wowed" and then some. We stayed in the Ditchdigger room which was spacious and comfy. We will most definitely be back. Shhhh...

This is a very special place. We stayed 2 nights in The Pelletiere, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Three of the 4 rooms overlook the gorgeous valley and rolling vineyard hills. Everything is set up for comfort, and it's hard to leave the inn to taste the wines of the region, but you must make time for that as well. The outstanding wines of Paso Robles is a secret that's beginning to get out.

Our hosts, Don and Felisa, couldn't have been nicer, and their breakfasts were wonderful. They laid out a cheese plate for us each evening, along with a nice glass of a Denner wine. The inn is a part of the Denner Winery (some of the best of the region), and wine club members get a discount at the inn.

The house is available for sitting and visiting, and so it is ideal to book with friends.

Room Tip: The Pelletiere is the only room with a tub, if that's important to you.

This gorgeous house sits on top of a hill in the middle of beautiful Paso Robles wine region. The 360 views of the surrounding Denner Vineyards is absolutely breathtaking. The inn is comfortable, very tastefully decorated, and very convenient to the bulk of the westside vineyards. The afternoon cheese & wine pairing, the views, and the hospitality of the innkeepers, Ron & Felisa, makes this b&b a perfect spot for a weekend get away!

We stayed at the Janis room which was comfortable but small. We recommend the DitchDigger or DirtWorshipper.

Room Tip: DitchDigger or DirtWorshipper would be our choice.

Stayed at the Comus House for 3 nights in early July. We had the Janis room which is in the front of the house. There are 4 rooms total. The rooms and the house in general are immaculate. The house is unbelievably beautiful. Felisa is a great host and cooks a fantastic breakfast in the morning. The views from the house are unreal as the house sits atop a hill overlooking much of Paso. The convenience of the house cannot be beat. You are within an easy drive of all of the great wineries in the area. Only negative is that the House has a beautiful pool with an infinite edge which looks out toward the valley and the "Tuscanesque" setting, but the County will not allow guests to use it. You have to sign a statement acknowledging that you won't use it. But that minor flaw would not prevent me from booking this B&B in the future. The cost is well worth it.
