Our family of five enjoyed every minute of our stay! The location is a plus: close proximity to Cambria, San Simeon, Morro Bay, Cayucos etc...they are all within short distances and made it easy for us to visit different places each of our 3 days in the area of Templeton. Karen was more than a delight and excellent host. Even when away, she made herself available via text or phone call and always with a smile. Our family lucked out, we visited Sun-Wed and we enjoyed the house all to ourselves! The sunrises were amazing out on the balcony patio as were the evening hours too in company of the roaming deer. The atmosphere was tranquil, yet open to family laughter and good times. We enjoyed dancing night, swimming, hiking, picking fresh vegetables from the garden, ping pong, and overall great family memories. We'll be back again soon, but next time we're bringing the large extended family too! Gracias Karen and the facilities group that maintains the grounds/home. Best Regards,
It was an amazing experience staying at the Dancing Deer Farm. This a hidden secret I rather keep to myself, but I want everyone to benefit form the amazing hospitality, gorgeous views, and the local organic garden products we had the joy of having. Lastly while the pricing alone made an impossible deal to beat, Karen and Peter where the kindest and well rounded hosts I have ever come across. Enough said. Just experience it for yourself!
The house is such a nice, clean and quiet place. Even we arrived late, the manager Karen was still waiting for us to show us around the property, all the things we need to know. We love sitting in the backyard enjoy our meals, walking around the trail and exploring the vegetable garden. This is the first time my sister and brother-in-law stayed in B&B, they were so amazing that I found such a beautiful place. We will definitely revisit the place again.
We had a great stay at Dancing Deer, a perfect break on our family road trip. It was peaceful, beautiful and just what we needed. Karen was also great in accommodating our needs. Would love to stay again in the future!
