Red Barn Loft
Enjoy Real Country Relaxation in Paso Wine Country.
I have always wanted to sleep in a red barn! Haven't you? Now is your chance. This adorable red barn is fully equipped with all the conveniences of home along with the added bonus of a rooster for an alarm clock. Enjoy the sunrise from the deck while rocking on the swing with a cup of joe or in the evening with a glass of Paso wine during sunset.
About the Property
This 1000 sf, 2BR, 1BA quintessential red barn is the perfect escape to the country...wine country that is! Paso Style! Located in Templeton's highly desirable westside, this newly updated barn unit has easy access to all of Paso Robles Wine Country's top wineries. Just minutes from Turley Wine Cellars, Rotta and Venteux Vineyards. Right off the 101, it has easy access to 46W and is just minutes to Trader Joe's and downtown Templeton.
Both bedrooms have very comfortable queen beds. One bedroom features a 4-poster bed frame while the other is adorned with very stylist country chic decor and a desk (if you must work). This barn has excellent hi-speed Internet.
The open concept living space has a comfy couch and side chair with enough seating for 4. A 36" SmartTV is ready to stream all your favorite shows. Don't forget your Netflix account number! Open to the living room and kitchen, the dining area has a solid wood table with seating for 4. The kitchen is well-equipped with all the essentials to whip up some gourmet meals to pair with your latest Paso Wine acquisitions. A full-sized fridge, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven and plenty of serviceware add to the complement of kitchen gear.
The peninsula has two wooden stools for the guests to hang at while entertaining the chef.
Central heat and air conditioning, along with a large ceiling fan in the great room keep you comfortable year round.
Wake up to the rooster crowing, while sipping on a cup of coffee. Rock on the swing on the large deck while watching the sunrise. Or sip and savor a Paso blend to a beautiful sunset. This is true country livin'. Can't you just smell the bacon cookin'? Get a true respite from your busy city life and enjoy the country life and star-filled skies.
You could not be in a better, more central and convenient location to hit up some of Paso's most prestigious wineries on the famed Westside. You are just 3 minutes to downtown Templeton, 7 minutes to downtown Paso and 30 minutes to other Central Coast destinations: Cambria, Pismo Beach, and downtown San Luis Obispo. There is easy access to 101, which makes your day trips a breeze.
Trader Joe's is a half-mile away along with J & R Meats which offers local grass-fed beefs and other meats. In the same shopping plaza is Pier 46, the area's top fish market and restaurant and Merry Hill Coffee shop for you java junkies. In downtown Templeton is Nature's Touch Nursery & Harvest, a fully-organic grocery store with provisions from local farmers. Larger grocery stores include Albertson's and Food For Less, both about 7 miles in either direction off the 101.
For a small town, Templeton provides lots of eating out options. McPhee's is top on the list and perfect for that special occasion. Ian (McPhee) cooks up fantastic farm-to-table fare. Other local flavor includes AJ Spurs (Western flavor) and Jacks's (wood-fired cooked burgers, salads and lots of TVs for viewing sports). Enjoy a glass of wine and an appetizer or cheese platter at 15 Degrees Wine Bar before or after dinner. To start your day, you can't go wrong with Joe's for an All-American breakfast or The Kitchen for a bit more gourmet breakfast or lunch delicacies.
After you've exhausted the Templeton restaurants, the Paso restaurants are also outstanding. What's your pleasure: Italian, Irish, French, Mexican, Asian, Argentinean, Organic or Seafood? Paso has them all and more. There's even a new Speak Easy in town, called Eleven Twenty-Two. You're in wine and foodie heaven.
There is so much to do on the Central Coast. Of course there is wine tasting and wine events. But once the taste buds need a break, there are so many other activities near by. Golf anyone? Paso Robles Golf Course is a great course for the novice. The more serious golfer might try Hunter Ranch. There are dozen other courses around the area as well. While the guys are golfing there are plenty of spas for the ladies for a day of beauty treatments. Take in a concert at the Vina Robles Amphitheater. There is not a bad seat in the gorgeous 2500 seat music venue. For the more adventurous types, there are plenty of hiking trails and a zip line to amp up the adrenaline.
Venture out to the local towns. Go antiquing in Cambria. Visit the Elephant Seals and Hearst Castle in San Simeon. Collect shells on Moonstone Beach. Drive an ATV on the beach at the Oceano Dunes. Check out the fantastic Farmer's Markets - Saturdays in downtown Templeton and Thursday nights in San Luis Obispo. Days of endless fun awaits you on the Central Coast.

“We had a very good and relaxing time at the red barn. We enjoyed it’s close proximity to local attractions, yet seclusion from everyone else especially given the current circumstances. The place felt very private. Communication with the host was easy and she was very responsive. We saw the owners that live in the main building once or twice and they were friendly. There is a Trader Joe’s very nearby that comes very handy. The only reason we don’t give this place a higher rating is because basic amenities that most other places have such as coffee, sugar, salt, oil etc. were not included. Overall, we had a good experience.”
This place is simple and perfect. Gorgeous location, spotlessly clean, far enough away to be private, close enough to civilization if you need it. The hosts are terrific communicators and very accommodating. We'll be back!
What a great spot. It’s so peaceful and close to everything you need.
This is such a happy place!
Lovely quirky barn living with all the amenities with such a Wonderfully peaceful surrounding. Very central to San Luis Obispo, Paso Robles, and Cambria!
“We had a wonderful stay in this quaint, but updated barn loft. It was a perfect home base for trips out to Hearst Castle, the elephant seals, wine tasting in Paso Robles, and seeing the Sensorio art exhibit. The barn loft is located amongst several farms in the hills with beautiful views. Perfect for couples and families.”
Beautiful, spacious, and quiet. It’s close to everything, but feels like you’re staying in the countryside. Kathleen is a fantastic host! I can’t say enough good things about this space.
Kathleen was great at communicating the rules of the house and provided an easy check-in experience. This rental was in a prime location and perfect for our stay.
Enjoyed our stay in the red barn loft. Great location - close to wineries and not far from Paso Robles. Very clean and comfortable house and quiet neighborhood with great views. We were concerned about the rooster in the description, but only heard him once during our stay - and it wasn't even that loud. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again on future trips to Paso Robles. Kathleen was very responsive with great communication.

Delighted to be one of the first to review this great spot. Nestled at the end of a "no outlet" residential road right off the 101, we had no problems finding the Red Barn after dark - thanks to Waze! 🙂 Very convenient for any Paso Robles area exploring, the barn features a comfortable open space, with plenty of room and a real private feel. Neighborhood kids were friendly too. WiFi worked great (once I found the code on the kitchen message board over by the refrigerator) and Kathleen was quick on communication responses. I love the "no key" key pad method for entry wherever we stay and it worked great for this visit. Would highly consider as a Paso Robles residence for our next visit to the area.
