About the Property
NEW LISTING! Located in a quiet neighborhood in the rolling oak-laden hills of eastern Atascadero, this retro ranch-style home will feel nostalgic and homey and is just minutes from the 101 and walking distance to downtown. Enjoy one of several great hiking trails in Atascadero, take a stroll around Atascadero Lake, or grab a fresh croissant at Hush Harbor Artisan Bakery or a glass of local zinfandel at Fossil wine bar while shopping in Atascadero’s adorable budding downtown. Get to Paso Robles, Santa Margarita, SLO or the gorgeous beaches of Morro Bay and Cayucos in less than half an hour. It’s a great central location to explore the area... and, of course, over 200+ wineries in the Paso Robles AVA.
This 1950’s ranch has been preserved with its Mid Century Modern flair: authentic wood paneling, hardwood floors, knotty pine cabinetry and wainscoting, and classic period details. Large picture windows let in the golden central coast sun and gorgeous countryside views. Its classic charm will warm your heart. It's the perfect getaway for 2 or 3 couples, a small family with kids or a group of friends for a wine-themed weekend.
The primary bedroom dons a King bed and a picture window looking out to the gorgeous views of Pine Mountain. Sip coffee in bed while enjoying the scenery.
Bedroom two features a 2-queen bed bunk. It sleeps 4.
A full bath between the bedrooms is updated with classic mosaic tiles, vessel sink, and subway tile in the bath/shower combo.
Walk through the front door and be charmed by an original wooden wall divider as you walk into the bright and spacious living room with 2 side chairs and a large sectional with seating for 4. Relax and enjoy the awesome mountain views through the large picture windows or your favorite TV shows on the 43” SmartTV. Don’t forget your Netflix or Prime account numbers so you can stream movies and other favorite entertainment.
Off the living room is the dining room with a brick fireplace (non functional) and dining table with seating for 6. There’s also a stand-up piano for the musically inclined. The dining room opens up to the classic Mid Century Modern kitchen, which is fully-equipped with all the essentials to whip up some meals to dine inside or al fresco. The kitchen has an electric 4-burner stove, microwave and full size refrigerator. It’s stocked with all the cooking utensils, small appliances and staple spices necessary.
A half bath and laundry area is just off the kitchen for guest’s usage.
Off the back of the house is a patio area with seating for 4, a gas-powered fire pit and a BBQ for your use. On the side, there is a picnic table in the shady, grassy side of the house. Dine alfresco while enjoying the views.
We provide personal amenities including soap, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion, paper products, kitchen necessities such as dish soap and trash bags. There are plenty of linens and bath towels. Laundry facilities and detergent are both in laundry areas. The kitchen is also stocked with the essential staples: coffee, tea, olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and spices. There is dinner service for 8 as well as plenty of serving necessities.
This home is just a five-minute drive or a peaceful 20-minute walk down winding tree-lined streets to downtown Atascadero where there are coffee shops, wine-tasting rooms, bars, restaurants, great local shops, and a craft brewery or two. The Atascadero Lake Park offers free summer concerts from June through August every Thursday night. Pack a picnic basket, a bottle of wine or two, your beach chairs and enjoy local musicians belting out everything from jazz to rock and blues.
Vons is the nearest grocer, located 5 minutes away on El Camino Real. Just 5 miles up the 101 on Vineyard Drive in Templeton is a Trader Joe’s. While at the Trader Joe's you can pick up some fresh caught fish at Pier 46 Fish Market or grass-fed local meats at J&R Meats.
Wine, beer and spirits tasting, hot air ballooning, horseback riding, water park, jeep rides, ziplining, hiking, nature walks, Animal Zoo, Farmer's Markets, concerts at Vina Robles Amphitheatre, spas, beaches, Morro Bay, Hearst Castle, Cambria...take your pick. There are endless options to play until your heart's content. And don’t miss Paso’s latest attraction, Sensorio. Designed by artist, Bruce Munro, the “Field of Light” exhibition is a 15-acre walk-through experience through over 58,800 stemmed spheres.
Home is spacious, quiet, and tastefully decorated. Our one-year-old daughter loved being able to wander the circular setup of the house, “play” the upright piano, and watch deer graze a few steps away from the living room. Just a couple notes for future visitors: as others have noted, there are no blackout curtains. There are eye shades provided, but if you have a lil’ one who needs complete darkness to nap, prepare in advance. Also, the bedrooms can get COLD, even with the wall heaters on. We stayed at the end of December when temps at night were in the low 30s and ended up having to bundle our daughter up in extra layers and a fleece sleep sack. At one point, the thermostat we brought with us (yep, we’re those type of first time parents) read 59 degrees in her room. A couple other minor notes: the shower pressure is very low, if you care about that sort of thing. And checkout policies require that you strip the sheets, start a load of towels in the washer, and take out the trash. So make sure to budget time for that in the morning of your checkout!
It was a lovely home to stay in with beautiful views from that back window especially sunrise & sunset. Even loved seeing the resident deers (5) of them. Very convenient to downtown & stores. Would stay there again. Agency always was available to answer any questions. I was even able to check in early.
The house was clean, roomy and the view was really beautiful! The beds were comfortable and the shower was nice. We didn't cook much, but the kitchen was nice and simple and clean.
Great location and nice house.
Very spacious and nicely decorated house. Large side and backyards which were very private due to surrounding shrubs and trees. Many deer and birds.
Kathy’s place is beautiful and very cozy. The views from the living room and master bedroom are amazing. We spotted deers near the backyard and few pretty blue birds too. The house is super clean and hold all the essential amenities one needs for a weekend away from home. We loved our stay at Kathy’s and would love to book again when in town
I loved spending time in this home! All amenities were great, the view was amazing, and the host was very helpful. I really appreciate my time spent in Atascadero and would go again with no hesitation!
Beautiful views & convenient to center of town
We loved our short stay here. Beautiful little house, has pretty much everything needed. Calm and quiet area off the Main Street but still very close to everything.
Retro ranch was beautiful! Plenty of seating for hanging out both inside and outside. Everything was clean and there were plenty of linens and kitchen supplies. The bathroom even had a hairdryer and diffuser which one of our guests was very impressed with. Parking was easy and the neighborhood was quiet. Great communication with host. Overall fantastic stay!
Literally perfect , just as described. Not far from the beach , quiet respectful neighbors , and very very clean ! Loved it !!!
Great view, lots of deer, and the cutest retro ranch you’ve ever stayed in! Close to the highway makes for easy travel to and from the house. The home includes a big living room, big bathroom, and comfy beds. Highly recommend!
We had a wonderful stay here, would recommend to anyone who wants to check out atascadero area. The place was a little hard to find at first, because it's in some winding neighborhood roads, so make sure you use GPS. Very close to downtown, 5 min drive, and about 10 min from Paso Robles, and 15-20 min to wineries on vineyard Ave. Check in was easy. The outside of the place looks a bit shabby but inside is very cute, retro mid century modern style. We appreciated the nicely remodeled bathrooms and that half bath by the kitchen/laundry room when you have multiple people. The kitchen has all the basics, nice to have coffee and a coffee grinder. No dishwasher though so if you plan to cook you have to wash dishes by hand. They had an assortment of board games and puzzles. TV was great, esp Apple TV since we don't have that at home. Wish the sheets were more soft, a bit scratchy but the beds were comfy. It would be great to have blackout curtains in the rooms bc the sun is so bright early in the morning but they provided eye masks which was nice. If you are bringing an electric car you need to use the outlet in the laundry room as the one in the front of the house was not grounded and wouldn't work. You can also find plenty of places to charge in the area and even at some of the wineries. I would avoid parking in front of the garage/under the tall tree in the driveway, my car is covered in tree sap from the past few days. Really nice and quiet neighborhood. Overall we enjoyed our stay and ç.
Cutest little place with the best view! So clean and aesthetically pleasing!
Beautiful, spacious home. Not too far from Pismo Beach. Thanks for letting us stay. Beautiful home.

Wonderful house in a wonderful location! We were 20 minutes out from our wine tasting locations and the view from the house is beautiful. We had a deer friend who would stop by to say hi every morning!

Had a great stay! The host was very accommodating and helped us check-in early. They were also very responsive and were quick to help us with requests/drop off essentials.

This is a really lovely home, well-maintained and beautifully situated. The location is great for exploring the area and it offers very good value relative to the high-priced scale of the region. We also appreciated the family-friendly touches, including the fun board games! It's worth noting in warmer weather that the wall unit air conditioner isn't quite up to the task of keeping the full living space cool - though the bedrooms have their own units and are very comfortable. We'd stay here again.

Thank you Kathy for opening up your beautiful home for my parents and partner to enjoy this past week. We had such an incredible experience after not being able to see each other much over the past 15 months during the pandemic/shutdown. It is such a lovely space and we love how open the living room is for individuals to do their own thing or come together when it makes sense. Will definitely plan on returning!

The views are, indeed, outstanding. This place is in a very quiet and relaxing neighborhood, just a few minutes’ drive from the main drag in Atascadero and very freeway-friendly. We kept saying throughout our trip how cutely decorated it is. The only real downside is that the curtains in the master bedroom don’t block hardly any light and, this time of year, the early morning sun hits hard and fast. A sleep mask (or in my case a dark t-shirt covering my eyes) is essential if you want to sleep past 6am. Other than that, we simply loved this place! Great job on stocking it so well. Other notables include the deer that hang out literally in the backyard and the mountain lion I saw strolling down the street. Would definitely stay again.
