About this listing
We're delighted when Guests tell us they enjoy our upper story Guesthouse Apartment not only for its privacy and serenity, but also for its comfort and convenient central location. The lower level, with its separate entrance, houses a collection of books and a gallery of fine art photography open to the public by appointment.
All furnishings emphasize comfort and convenience (pillow-top queen size bed, soft water showers, thick-cushioned furniture, cable TV with free HBO, and free Wi-Fi). Beautiful views of surrounding foothills, oaks and pines framed by alcove windows in living and bedroom areas; skylights enhance dining and living room areas. Private garden and deck offer unobstructed views of spectacular night time sky. Many local restaurants offer fine dining, but fully-equipped kitchen also invites a home-cooked meal - just bring your favorite food and beverage.
Warm summer days give way to cool evenings for a restful night's sleep, but central air and heating assure year round comfort. Convenience and privacy afforded by off-street parking, private gated entrance, and enclosed garden.
Centrally located for hiking and biking trails. Midway between San Francisco and L.A. Only 15 minutes to either Paso Robles to the north (wineries, movie theaters and restaurants) or San Luis Obispo to the south (Cal Poly, theaters, shopping, restaurants). 10 minutes to nearby historic Santa Margarita Ranch (Ancient Peaks Winery and Margarita Adventures' zip-line tours, Sunset Magazine's annual Savor the Central Coast and other special events). Scenic drives to Morro Bay and nearby beach towns in 20 minutes (Hwy 41), or Cambria and San Simeon (Hearst Castle) in 40 minutes (spectacular Hwy 46).

Interaction with Guests
We'll greet you when you arrive since the Guesthouse has its own gated entrance and parking, but after you know the “where" and “how", entry is easy. We respect our Guests' privacy during their stay, but we're also happy to share the art gallery if you have a desire and time in your schedule. And we're always available to respond to any questions or requests.
