You first enter the vineyard between two big oak trees and are promptly greeted by Riley, the dog, and his owners Marlowe and Corrine. This is a true indication of what is to come during your stay. Not only are the views breathtaking, the breakfasts gourmet and delicious, the beds comfy, and the wine tasty, but the hospitality is top notch. Marlowe and Corrine make you feel very welcome during your stay. The delicious homemade breakfasts and the well-groomed grounds make you feel as though you've stepped into a magazine. Marlowe and Corrine are more than happy to help you plan the activities for your stay and are even willing to call and make reservations if needed. Your room has all of the ammenities. Whether it's fresh coffee (or tea) in the morning, a soft robe to wrap in, a picnic basket for your travels, freshly picked flowers at breakfast, or that one item you accidentally forgot, it is all there for you. This trip was my husband's first experience at a Bed and Breakfast and I have to say he was thoroughly impressed. I, too, after having stayed at a few in the past was also very impressed. This stay truly made our entire trip. We are now looking forward to the next time we can make it to Paso and catch up with Marlowe, Corrine, and, of course, Riley.
