Asuncion Ridge
Ranked #19 of 30 Paso Robles B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We had high hopes for this B&B based on the glowing reviews we had read but it actually still managed to blow us away! The location is wonderful, although it's easy to reach Paso Robles for the town and nearby wineries, you feel like you're in your own world and away from everything. It is incredibly peaceful and the rooms are gorgeous and very comfortable with everything you could need. We were very well looked after with a delicious breakfast cooked for us and some of their own wine on our arrival. A wonderful place. The owner, Philip, also recommended some local wineries and we did several tastings which I would also recommend.

Room Tip: We were in the Zinfandel suite which was gorgeous. It doesn't have the view down to Morro bay bu...

There really is nothing to add to all the previous reviews, only that believe them. If you like quiet, understated elegance, knock your socks off beautiful countryside, feeling welcome and cared for - this is the place. It is especially suited for a group using all three rooms. Phillip makes you feel as if it is your house while you are there.

We just returned last night from three glorious nights at Asuncion Ridge Inn. No need for me to repeat the rave reviews you will find here, but I will add that the little touches Phillip does (like a lighted makeup mirror and cushy robes in our room) make this place really special. We were with two other couples so having the place to ourselves was nice. However, the place is roomy with plenty of quiet or private spaces to sit and read with a glass of wine. Phillip even has many books and magazines for his guests' to enjoy. It was hard to do anything but look at that view though. And at night on the patio there were more stars than I've seen in years. So restful. The drive up was longer than we anticipated, but on those curvy paths there was so much to see! The views were beautiful, but reaching the top where the inn sits, the views were spectacular! If you walk just past the inn to the next hill, you can also catch the sun as it sets over the mountain. I recommend taking that easy stroll with a glass of 3 Sum, one of our favorite wines from Asuncion Ridge vineyards.

Room Tip: Any room is nice, with its own sitting area outside.

My husband and I just spent 2 nights at this amazing B and B. Number one the view is unbelievably breathtaking. The house is beautiful and comfortable. There were snacks and wine waiting when we arrived. We enjoyed an amazing evening watching the sunset sipping wine. The next morning Philip prepared an amazing breakfast Philip is one of those rare hosts that makes you feel like you are being spoiled but you are no trouble at all. I can't say enough about this wonderful experience. Other than it would be nice to keep it a secret.

We stayed for one night at Asuncion Ridge. Directions were provided by the owner, Philip. We found our way to the homestead. Wine and nibbles were provided on arrival.

The property is amazing, located high on the hill, with breathtaking views. Breakfast was magnificient, the wines sesnsational. A great night.

This was our very first time at this B&B and we just loved it! Philip is a great guy, there isn't anything he can't do! From B&B owner to winemaker to great chef to musician, he's done it all and it was wonderful to be on the receiving end of all his talents. First, the place itself is a little piece of heaven. It is about a 20 min drive from 101, up picturesque and windy hills until you reach the very top where the house has spectacular views out toward Morro Bay and the surrounding hills. You really feel like you are away from it all. Our room was comfy and had a little patio area. There is no TV in the room but we honestly didn't miss it one bit. It was nice to soak in the large tub and read a good book in the comfy queen bed. The common areas are great to hang out in as well, particularly the outdoor areas. Philip prepares a great breakfast each morning and you have your choice of eating it inside or outside. We ended up on the outside patio with the great views, chatting with our fellow guests. There are 3 rooms and even though they are near each other, we never heard our neighbors and it was all very quiet. It would be great to reserve all 3 rooms with friends so you can have the whole place to yourselves. We might do this next time!

Philip is also a wonderful winemaker! We stopped by his tasting room in Downtown Paso and just loved his wines. Even if you don't stay here, definitely visit the room and give his great wines a try.

It may be a little bit more of a trek to get to Paso (it's another 10 mins up 101 once you get down to the freeway ) but it is SO worth it!! The drive itself goes by so quickly because there are so many things to see along the way, especially the Texas longhorns! Phillip's hospitality, great cooking and fantastic place make it a very memorable getaway. We will be back! Thanks Philip!!

We've stayed at Asuncion Ridge with friends for the past four Memorial Day weekends. Twice we rented all 3 rooms and had the place to ourselves. The first time just the hubby and I, and most recently with friends - their third Memorial Day getaway with us.

As soon as we get home, we all want to book the next year!

The three bedrooms are all different sizes, nicely appointed, wonderful linens, great art, stunning views. We have dibs on the largest and most expensive room, the Pinot Noir Suite - 1,000 feet of luxury. King sized bed. The bath (huge tub and glassed in shower are stunning, with oak tree views and plenty of privacy. The Zinfanfel and Syrah suites are smaller, but no less stunning.

The common areas leave enough room for everyone to sit together, sipping some of Philip Krumal's excellent Asuncion Ridge wines and chatting. There is alwaqys an open bottle, and some almonds and other snacks out. A bonus is when Phillip is there joining in the conversation. He is one of the reasons to stay here. Gregarious, interesting, winemaker, innkeeper, tender of herb garden, musician. You'll be friends before you leave.

On the first night, Philip asks what time everyone would like breakfast the next morning, and the first time, asks about any diet restrictions, preferences, etc.

In the morning, 2 French Presses and coffee grounds waiting for the early risers. Boil the water, make your own 2 pots. Once everyone is up and about, a buffet of that fabulous french press coffee in a big carafe, fruit juices, yogurts, fresh berries and melon and granola are laid out with plates, glasses, silverware on a white flowing tablecloth on a buffet off the kitchen.

Everyone sits together at the large table (tho' on our first trip - just the two of us - another couple opted to sit on the patio overlooking Morro Rock 8 miles down the mountain. I can't blame them, it's a gorgeous view.

Soon, the aroma of some savory, eggy delight wafts through the house. This year we had three breakfasts, so three different baked dishes. First one was a ramekin filled with a crustless quiche of pancetta and gruyere, next morning Chorizo (usually vegetarian) and pepper jack,and last morning we had a new creation. New this year was French Toast 4.0. Rather than the previous slices of eggy french toast folded over blueberries or some other fruit, 4.0 was a bread puddingy baked treat with apples and cinnamon in the middle, French toast points imbedded in the eggs. Not too sweet, even tho' it was apple pie apples.

The wines (will cover in my review of the tasting room) in downtown Paso Robles are scrumptious.Sometimes there is a port waiting after you return from dinner or a long day of adventures.

The winery inn is fabulous, nestled among ancient oaks, long-horned cattle that graze on neighboring property (most of the time) and are worth a photo stop on the winding road to the inn. The inn location and vineyards enjoy a 2,200 feet elevation, so the Asuncion Ridge wine club is appropriately named the 1/2 Mile High Club. It's perched in the southern end of the Santa Lucia mountains with a vast view to the west, including sunset and Morro Rock 8 miles away.

It's a 30 or so minute drive to downtown Paso Robles, and a 40 minute drive to Cambria on the Pacific Ocean from the Inn. So it's a perfect place to set up housekeeping for visits to the fabulous west-side and far west wineries nearby. Just ask Philip, and he'll suggest a day or two's worth of excellent wineries to visit. Or just bring a book and nestle into one of the inside cubbyholes or outside sunny or shady patios, and lose yourself in contemplation. I do both on every visit!

Room Tip: Rent all three rooms with friends, and take the place over.
