The Summerwood Inn was the last stop on a 4-day driving journey we took from Oregon through California. When I first read the TripAdvisor reviews, I was a little bummed to see that Summerwood only ranked 13 out of the B&Bs in the area - but from the moment we approached the front door, I knew we'd made the right choice.
The building is absolutely lovely. Entry doors lead you right into the common room which has a large fireplace, plenty of plush seating, good reading light, and a buffet where some sort of goodies will await!
We came in late, about 1/2 an hour after the evening hors d'oeuvres and wine had been put away - yet the young woman who greeted us still brought us complimentary glasses of wine to our room AND, when we expressed interest in some basil-infused brownies the chef had recently prepared, she immediately returned with a bunch of them for us to eat. THEN, we expressed our delight with the in-room truffles and she returned with 4 more of those! We immediately felt right at home, more so than any of the previous B&Bs we had stayed at on our road trip. Plus there was a complimentary bottle of wine waiting for us, and although we have not had it yet, another guest did try it and said it was very good.
The young woman recommended several restaurants for dinner - when we chose one, she got on the phone right away and discovered they were booked - we made a second choice, and she called them right away and made a late reservation. Dinner was great.
Our room was the Moscato Allegro - very spacious, on the ground floor. Huge bathroom, great bed with tiny stepladders up to it. Easy-to-use fireplace and great view of the grounds and vineyard from the back patio. No negatives to speak of, other than there was a large group staying at the Inn and they came back from dinner very late, and decided to talk (very loudly) in the common room - so we could hear that in our room. But we're pretty flexible people and it was not a big deal at all.
Breakfast was excellent, lots of options to choose from (including vegan), and we sat with a lovely couple who were up wine tasting for a few days.
I can't wait to come back to Summerwood and next time I do, it will be for a Paso Robles wine tasting adventure when we can spend more time at the Inn and tasting the local wines.
