“Peaceful, close to nature, comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

Very enjoyable stay. The home is comfortable, clean and attractive. Good bed. Plenty of privacy. Beautiful property. Relaxing patio. Kitchen, dining, family rooms open to quests. Owner, Larry, is cordial and available for help or suggestions about restaurants and wineries. Beautiful weather. We would like to return and stay longer. We are Sr. citizens. There were two other very nice couples of various ages. We all seemed to enjoy the B and B. Not handicap accessable.

Room Tip: We were in the Phaeton Suite on the ground floor. Very comfortable and quiet.

Thanks for your kind words! Glad you brought up the question of disability limitations. I am very sensitive to that with handling my lovely wife who was in a wheelchair for over three years. As a B&B with five rooms or less, we do not need to comply with ADA requirements. However we have hosted several in the Phaeton suite. There is one small step and the entrance is concrete. The other rooms all have stairs to gain access.

House - very nice
Bedroom - very nice
Grounds - very nice
Proprietor - Larry welcoming but busy. Little interaction with guests.
Breakfast: disappointing
1st day: egg quiche tasty with side of fruit, store-bought muffins, canned orange juice, coffee
2nd day: repeat of 1st day
I always look forward to great breakfasts at B&Bs - fresh juice, assortment of baked items, main dish that changes from day to day. Didn't find that here and for that reason, have to strike it off my list for return visits. Felt sorry for another couple that was there four days.

First of all thanks for the comments that were kind!

We appreciate input from guests that can help us improve. There are some things that need to be clarified. We have over eight different recipes that are used that do have a variety guests say they like. If this guest was served the same thing for the second day that was a mistake. (I think it was one of our veggie dishes) We try to vary and provide a selection. The OJ is fresh bottled and not canned. The pastries were made by Esmeralda here on the ranch. The other guests had a great time and indicated to me they liked the breakfasts.

We feel we offer a good product at a reasonable price and will keep trying to improve. Larry

Larry, the owner, is the most welcoming of hosts. He's gracious and generous and provides great recommendations of wineries and restaurants to check out.

We stayed in the Phaeton Suite and couldn't have had a better experience. I highly recommend taking the Grape Ed 101 class taught by Larry himself. There, you'll go on a personalized excursion on his Mule go-kart as you truck around the beautiful vineyard, navigating through the vine rows and stopping by to say hi to his cows and horses.

We'll come back again for the quiet, beautiful, and relaxing stay. But mainly we'll come back to say hi to Larry again.

Good for a romantic getaway, flying solo, and for families as well.

Room Tip: We (2 people) stayed in the Phaeton suite and enjoyed it very much

Property was comfortable, well-maintained and very clean. It is located on a pretty piece of land and the staff were as friendly as you could want. Breakfast was delicious and there are many nice touches like complimentary beverages and snacks, chocolates on the pillow and DVDs for viewing. the owner is helpful and very nice. I would stay again.

Room Tip: Vis-a-Vis suite was a great value and very nice.

My wife and I were searching for a last stop before returning home from vacation so we tried this B&B in Templeton wine country. What a delight! You can be out of touch with urban life if you wish or you can visit as many wineries as you like. Larry, the owner, has great suggestions for wineries and restaurants. Larry also runs the vineyards and tends to them, so showing up as he does every morning at breakfast truly shows his pleasure at having you stay. The room was very comfortable and up-to-date and the breakfasts were excellent. And his Grape Ed 101 is an extra bonus. Stay for a few days, as we did, because you really can relax!

This was the best accommodation we had during our 2-week stay in the US recently. The bedroom was spacious and comfortable, the bathroom had everything we needed and the snacks and drinks etc, plus information about local eateries, plus a comfortable lounge and DVDs to watch really made this a 'home from home'. We also enjoyed admiring the great collection of carriages, although we didn't have time to ride in one. It was also excellent value for money.

Right when we drove up and got out of the car I was amazed by the breathtaking view! My husband and I strolled through the vineyards that night and enjoyed the beautiful scenery.
We had a delicious breakfast, were amazed by the collection of carriages, took a carriage ride, and participated in Larry's Grape 101 class. We had more fun in 24 hours then we have had all year! Larry is a great host. He was so kind, knowledgable, and had some hilarious jokes! We can't wait to go again !

Room Tip: Loved the Suite
