Description

Donkey Ridge Donkey Ridge, where you can enjoy spectacular views of vineyards, orchards and the rich agricultural land that this area is known for. Not far you will find winding roads to backroad wineries. Pomar Junction, with it’s historic rail car and caboose and Victor Hugo, specializing in small hand-crafted lots of wine are just two favorites. Take a trip to nearby Templeton and shop for fresh, local sustainable and healthy foods direct from the farmers who grow it, every Saturday at the Templeton Farmers' Market. You will enjoy antique shopping, boutiques and fabulous Western Style and California cuisine restaurants pairing with local wines. Changing it up? Check out Tin City where you will find Barrelhouse Brewery, Tin City Cider and Wine Shine with its Flavored brandies made with juice from local wineries plus whiskey, vermouth, bitters and anything else this upstart distillery can concoct. The eclectic, bright 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bath house has a laid back feel. After a day of exploring, as daylight fades, sink back in your chair, pour some wine and watch the sun slowly dip behind the hills from Donkey Ridge.

Great place to stay - August 2018

This is a great place to stay. It was lovely with everything one could need to enjoy a vacation. Close to restaurants in Paso and wineries in Templeton. Easy to get to and very relaxing. Mimosas sitting there enjoying the view. What else is vacation about. One thing is there is no shower in the master bedroom/bathroom. Very strange as there are two other full baths. But we were fine. Lovely room sizes, comfortable beds with upscale linens, and lovely decorating. - Nancy S., Williamsburg, Virginia

A perfect Getaway - July 2018

Donkey Ridge was the perfect home for our group (3 couples out for a wine tasting weekend.) The home was clean and well appointed and also well decorated. We loved hanging outside and watching the sun go down over wine country. It was quiet but also easy to get to our Paso favorites. We loved how much Tin city has grown since our last trip to the area. Victor Hugo Winery (minutes down El Pomar) is the BEST around. Thank you for a great stay...hopefully, the shower in the master is working soon and I would recommend some large towel racks in the master as well. Otherwise, the home is perfect and by far, our favorite we've stayed in the area! - Erin H., Laguna Niguel, California

Getting away from it all - May 2018

Off the beaten path, this house was the perfect place to rest and relax with friends. We were close to dozens of wineries and only a ten minuite drive to the highway. The house is newly upgraded and stocked with anything you might need. We enjoyed the sunset while bbqing on the back patio. - Anonymous, Cypress, CA

Beautiful, tranquil, relaxing - July 2018

Donkey Ridge was a perfect home for our two families. Each couple had their own room and our 4 kids shared the third room which was plenty spacious for them. The house is lovely inside and the views are magnificent from every direction. Tranquil setting at the house with lots to do in the area. Loved it! - Anonymous, Denver, CO

Gorgeous home with breathtaking views! - August 2018

The home was beautiful we especially loved the decor. It had everything we needed. We couldn’t get enough of the gorgeous views. Sunset and sunrise were the best times to sit out on the little yellow chairs and soak it all in. We were there for a wedding but hope to go back and visit again soon. - Anonymous, ,

A gem at Donkey Ridge - October 2017

Excellent setting for a wine tasting vacation in the Paso Robles area. Home is as described, clean and well appointed for vacation needs. Sunrise views watching deer frolic in the fields to sunset skies toasting the day make this rental an excellent choice. The short drive to town is manageable and worth it to enjoy the views. Very comfortable bedding, the bone is very clean and inviting. Beautiful kitchen, living area has views breathtaking. This home added to our vacation experience and I rent it again without hesitation. - Anonymous, Northfolk, Virgina

Response from Paso Robles Vacation Rentals® - October 2017

Gorgeous and relaxing! - October 2017

Donkey Ridge was a gem! We loved every square inch of the property. The photos do no justice to it all. The view was amazing and it was a pleasure to wake up early to see the sunrise every morning. The house was very clean when we arrived. Loved the decor and all the choices of games that were available to us. We didn’t get a chance to use the fireplace since there were no instructions and we didn’t want to risk damaging anything. The other issue we had was very minor, there were no cutting knives. We like to cook so with such a great kitchen, it was difficult for us to cut fresh vegetables. We did help ourselves to the fresh rosemary growing in front of the house. (Really brings out the flavor in steaks) Other than the missing cutting knives and lack of instructions for the fireplace, we have nothing negative to say about the property or the management company. You all did a great job in managing this home.
Thank you for letting us stay at Donkey Ridge! - Diana S., Berwyn, PA

Exceeded Expectations - March 2018

Enjoyed this home so much celebrating my 50th Birthday with a girls trip. We wanted to spend more time hanging out in the house than out and about. Incredible view and decor. - LANETTE D., Poway, CA

Donkey Ridge - April 2018

This was a great place. Awesome views! Very very clean and updated. No complaints except they could have had an extra mirror in the upstairs bedroom with the twin beds. We always go to Paso for wine tasting and will now make this our home away from home. We will definitely stay there again. - Anonymous, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA
