Set on 2 1/2 acres and just six minutes from the charming main square, RefugioPasoRobles boasts two state-of-the-art vacation suites, each with its own deck and fire-pit—plus a huge, entertainers-dream kitchen and expansive dining patio with Weber grill. Blazing-fast internet speeds make this the perfect place to shelter.

There is a back-up generator that provides power to the whole property in case of temporary electrical shutoffs.

The space
RefugioPasoRobles is a contemporary Spanish-style guesthouse, a peaceful retreat, and a place to wind down at magic hour with a glass of our excellent local wine on one of two private decks, or the large patio. Indulge your inner chef in your dreamy, fully equipped kitchen: two 4-burner Gaggenau cooktops, two convection ovens, two dishwashers, huge, French-door fridge/freezer, ice-maker and dual-zone wine cooler. Super-efficient heating and A/C. Or travel 6 minutes to the center of Paso and all its wonderful dining options. We call Refugio a "B and B," but the second "B" stands for a bottle -- of great wine.

Refugio is an idyllic, semi-isolated spot in which to "shelter-in-place" on the Central Coast. At 7 minutes from the center of town, Refugio is within the delivery zone for all Paso Robles establishments that offer delivery. Farmer's markets are open and full of incredible produce.

Cleaning and Disinfection: Since the advent of COVID, we have taken additional steps beyond our usual cleaning procedures to insure the safety of our guests, our cleaning staff, and ourselves. All hard surfaces are throughly disinfected with bleach solution which is left on for 10 minutes, per CDC guidelines. Bath and bed linens (including pillow protectors and mattress pads) are washed at the maximum temperature; our extremely competent housekeeper, with us since our opening, wears a protective mask and gloves at all times when preparing Refugio for guests.

Where you’ll be

Paso Robles, California, United States

Refugio is in the bucolic heart of California’s Central Coast wine country, in a rural-residential area of oak-dotted 5-acre ranchettes just six minutes from Paso Robles leafy main square. Many nearby properties have horses and other livestock. Great for walking!
