About the property

Renovated 1940's Cabin Tucked In The Rolling Hills Of Highway 46 West

Very cute and updated cabin tucked in the middle of wine country under beautiful oak trees and rolling hills. This cabin has a full bath (rustic shower trough tub), living area with full kitchen, and new queen size bed. Cabin has amazing views of local vineyards and is only 2 miles from town and 15 miles to the beach.

This cabin was originally built in the 40's during WWII and was used on Camp Roberts as a military bunker. Its a very unique, charming, quite, cozy place to stay. Ride your bike or drive to local winery's or take a 15 minute drive to the beach. We are right off Highway 46 West. Located in the 'Templeton Gap' you can escape the heat, guaranteed cooler weather here with a slight afternoon breeze from the coastal influence.

Free parking, out door space, BBQ, and gorgeous views. Less then 1 mile from Paso Port, Hunt Cellars, Niner Wine Estates, Eagle Castle, Fat Cat Farm, Lone Madrone Winery, Shale Oak Winery, Red Soles Winery, Linne Calodo Cellars, Turley Wine Cellars and many more.

Owners live on property but your stay will be very private. We have a ranch dog, Percy but she is very friendly. We also have outdoor cats and livestock.

charming, private, with great views near wonderful wineries

  • 5 of 5

The cabin reminded us of summer camp, with s'mores and a feeling of rustic woods, but our summer camps were never decorated as lovely as this. One stop at Trader Joe's and we had everything we could possibly need, as everything else had been provided for us. We definitely will be returning. Thank you again, Staci!

Beautiful cabin!

My fiance and I had a wonderful stay. The cabin was adorable and had everything we needed (even farm fresh eggs for us in the fridge :)) We visited wineries during the day and came back and cooked steaks and had a fire. It was perfect!!

Very cute, private cabin in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my husband on a recent trip to the Paso Robles wine country. The cabin was very cozy, and a great to come back to after a long day of wine tasting. We really enjoyed making s'mores by the fire pit, and the heater inside kept us warm during the chilly nights. The location was private, but also provided easy access to local wineries and the towns of Paso Robles and Templeton. We loved our stay and will definitely come back!

Charming, well-appointed cabin in the heart of wine country

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could ever need, plus so many extras. Beautiful, peaceful and private setting in a perfect location for the west end wineries. Slept like a rock after a night making s'mores and great bird watching right at the cabin. The trough tub and rain shower along with stocked coffee and creamer was a nice way to start the day. Percy the lab and the sweetheart of a cat also came to say hello. Everything was so easy too - getting there, accessing the cabin and heading out I the morning. We will be back for sure. Thank you for wonderful stay!
