We didn't want to leave!!!
This chic, renovated barn is beyond fabulous. The accommodations are luxurious and private, and the only neighbors were rabbits, birds and deer. I picked this location for a getaway with my girlfriends, who couldn't stop raving about the comfortable beds and linens, and the well-appointed decor. What class! Pristine in cleanliness and soothing for the eyes, we had a difficult time pulling ourselves away from the cottage to go winetasting! It is a secure estate, so we were able to sleep with the windows open to take advantage of the fresh air at night and awaken to birds chirping in the morning. All of us stressed-out gals got some deep sleep! The spacious porch is key! We had coffee in the morning overlooking the stunning south vineyard, dined alfresco, and spent the late nights star gazing. Windows from the baths and the kitchen look out onto north vineyards as well -- we were surrounded by picturesque views! (This posting lists the cottage as having one bath, but there are two -- and one has a tub!) The owner had excellent and prompt communication (unlike others I'd experienced), and exceeded expectations in accommodating the needs of our group. We were thoughtfully welcomed, and given perfect directions and instructions. The owners' Asuncion Ridge Winery tasting room is in Downtown Paso, and we were offered a complimentary tasting for our group. Despite the good restaurant choices available Downtown, all their wines were delicious -- so we ended up changing our plans and purchased wine there and shopped for dinner provisions so we could make dinner at the cottage to be able to maximize our time at the location. However, two nights was too short of a visit! We didn't make time to take advantage of the bocce court or the wood smoker -- all so beautifully well lit in the evening. It was truly a perfect, relaxing escape, but next time I will plan to stay longer! And I will absolutely recommend this location to friends. What a treat! Thank you, Michael, for sharing your property with us!
