My husband and I had a business engagement in the Paso Robles area and were fortunate enough to meet someone who recommended the Asuncion Ridge B & B. The location is about 10 minutes off the freeway, high in the hills. I have to admit that my husband and I were wondering what we had done as we followed the precise directions provided by our host to reach the B & B. (Try to arrive during daylight as your GPS won't work in the hills). However, when we reached the house at the top of the ridge surrounded by rolling hills and the ocean in the horizon, all concerns quickly evaporated.
We were warmly greeted by the housekeeper who showed us the house which is exquisitely decorated with views from every window. We were shown to our room with it's king size bed, private bath and lovely patio with chaise lounges for relaxing. Wine glasses and wine from their vineyard were on the counter to enjoy. Phillip, our charming and hospitable host, joined us later in the afternoon. Philip is also a chef so our breakfasts in the sunny dining room with the other guests was a perfect way to start the day.
We look forward to returning to Asuncion; it was lovely, both food for the soul and for the stomach. Phillip is the perfect host. We are hoping to return with friends as Phillip is also available to host private parties. Thus, you could have a private dinner (you choose the menu) with no concerns about driving after having had a bit of the grape. Just a few steps to your bedroom when the evenings festivities are over. Now, that sounds like a great plan!
