The place is quiet, peaceful and filled with beautiful deer, turkeys and did I mention deer? What a treat is was to share their space. Morning, noon or night, you will see them. They are skittish so they will likely run if you try to get anywhere near them so admire them from a far and with your camera.

We were up in Suite 1. It was perfect for the 2 of us. Our friends, party of 4 rented the downstairs, Suite 2. The whole set up was perfect! The remote location was ideal with all the natural beauty surrounding us and to top it off, a wonderful little winery...right there with us. The roads are winding and narrow so we didn't drive in the dark or after drinking. If you plan on visiting wineries or are there for events, best to Uber which we did and worked perfectly!

The 2 days went by too quickly but we sure enjoyed the picnic bench over looking the vineyard watching the sunset over the hill with glasses of wine. Yes, I can see us returning here again...hopefully soon!

We stayed in Suite 1 with our dog and loved it. The place is secluded and quiet but right in the middle of wine country. Our dog was right at home and loved all of the places that he could investigate without his leash (which is a treat for him). The group that stayed in the house downstairs was friendly and quiet and most of the time i couldn't tell they were there.

Kris actually provided daily housekeeping (which is really rare) so the place was always clean and the linens were fresh. We didn't pay an extra cleaning fee or pet fee so it was really nice knowing there was only 1 "price" for staying!

The WIFI was easily accessible and FAST.

Peaceful, quiet, remote setting next to the Dunning Winery. Rented the upstairs suite which was like being in a tree house. Christine welcomed me and provide a quick overview of the suite. There is a small refrigerator and microwave. Christine had the refrig stocked with orange juice, milk, cream, coffee, butter, cream cheese, potato chips and protein bars. The counter also provided cereal, popcorn and other snacks. All which was much appreciated during our two night stay. On the second night, we came back and there were freshly made brownies waiting which we enjoyed with a hearty bottle of wine after grilling our steak from J&R Meats, Paso Robles. A lot of effort and thought is given into making your stay enjoyable and comfortable.
My recommendation for improvements- Some of the furniture could be updated. The mattress is soft and the couch is starting to break down. I would also recommend upgrading to a larger flat screen TV. There was free wi-fi, but the speed was so slow it took 15 minutes to download my email and I gave up. Overall the place was clean, but the windows were dirty and the place could of used a light dusting.

the Villa is what you want here....high on the hill with a Tuscan vista and miles of vineyards, mountains and things like out of a Kincaid painting. Bob Dunning make a pretty good wine too. The whole place is anything but commercial...its classy yet simple. elegant yet folksy, and compared to the in town options a real bargin !!!

This vineyard is very off the beaten path, GPS is strongly recommended if you are getting in late a night. Stay in the guest villa. It is at the top of the property with spectacular views of the vineyards, and at night Paso Robles in the distance.

Then there is the room, very private, very romantic. The spa tub's windows overlook the vineyards. The bed is extra comfy. Coffee and breakfast are in the kitchenette so as there is no one to disturb your time at the inn.

The owners have gone to great lengths to give their guests ultimate privacy, and it was just great. We will stay here again, and recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Stay in the guest villa.

This was our second visit to DRGS. Both times we have traveled as three couples and had the whole place for the weekend. We really enjoy the well stocked refrigerator for breakfast and snacks. Christine, the manager, was happy to resupply bottled waters. Suggest that you take some bug spray for sitting out on the porch in the evenings as there are some "no see ums". We weren't bothered by noise from the other suite, but it is an old cottage so don't go there expecting a soundproof room. We look forward to returning again!

Dunning Ranch is wonderful! My husband and I enjoyed a relaxing stay. We felt like we were guests in someone's charming home. The cottage is full of all the amenities you may need for your stay. We loved the beautiful evenings on the back porch and walking the property. The guest house is quiet and secluded, yet just a short drive to downtown Templeton, Paso Robles and wineries. I highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a unique and comfortable getaway. Looking forward to another vacation here!
