The Cozy Cottage is a 5 star in country living. It has beautiful views and the owners are very friendly and accommodating.
Our stay was an enjoyable weekend. It took my wife and I back to our childhood when visiting our grandparents. While mine didn't live in the country, they did live in a small town and my grandfather had various fruit tress and grew a variety of vegetables which I was able to help plant. As for my wife's grandparents, they grew up in the Paso / Atascadero area. In time they bought a 3+ acre parcel of land just outside of Atascadero. My wife has fond memories of her grandparents. As a child, she would enjoy her visits waking up early in the morning, with her grandparents already awake. Grandma preparing breakfast and grandpa outside feeding the cows and horses. She enjoyed being in the country, surrounded with animals, riding horses and the smell of oak trees.
The Cozy Cottage has this atmosphere to us. It was very quiet and relaxing. They had two horses which Ed gave us permission to feed apples and carrots. There were jack rabbits in the yard as well. While we would highly recommend staying here, please keep in mind, it truly is country living. If you don't want a little dust on your shoes, this may not be the place for you. But then again, perhaps you shouldn't visit Paso Robles. Whether you are visiting for the fair or wine tasting or pretty much anything you do in Paso, you're going to get a little dust on your shoes lol.
