“Mellow fruitfulness of Autumn”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

Wonderful Autumn scenes of leaves and vines in the setting sun greeted us from the windows of Summerwood Inn. After a 7 hour drive from Las Vegas we arrived at Summerwood last week to find a log fire, enough hors d-oeuvres to feed an army and the excellent Summerwood wines to wash them down with. This was our first visit so we didn't experience it before the refurbishment but can now vouch for a really good boutique hotel environment but with a more homely welcome including excellent breakfasts and the feeling that nothing is too much trouble. It was cold in the evenings but each room has a log effect fire which makes you feel so cosy we couldn't bear to leave it. The bathroom was cold in the morning though(one of few criticisms).

Summerwood is one of many excellent wineries around Paso Robles and we also enjoyed Peachy Canyon, Rotta, Shale Oak and Casatoro. For us it is just a shame that so few wines are exported beyond the US as production levels are low (often resulting in high quality). Lucky Californians to get these wines to drink!

We were among the last guests to have the pleasure to stay at the Summerwood Inn before it closed for extensive renovations. True the decor was a little tired, but the service, location and little "extras" they offer make this a special place to stay. For example, the food, which is prepared the innovative chef is just fantastic. You get a hearty breakfast (and nicely, they let you pick off a menu so it's not the same dish for everyone), heavy appetizers (burrata, fennel salad, a frittata, olives) and Summerwood wines in the early evening, and then cookies and coffee before bed. Honestly, they feed you well at Summerwood. After a long day touring vineyards, we ended up not going back out for dinner! I also liked the size of the room (very spacious) with a fireplace and a small balcony that overlooked the vineyards. Staying at the Inn entitles you to a free tasting and special deals on their label. These were just some of the great perks. I generally like to try new hotels when I travel, but when we go to Paso Robles in the future, I know we'll always stay here. Plus, I'm just so eager to see how the renovations turn out--it's going to move from a great hotel to a truly special place.

Stayed here in October 2012 and loved it. Saw some mixed reviews so had some doubt but was very pleased.

Pros:

Easy to find and just a mile or two off the main freeway, yet feel secluded
Set up wine tour for us with Grapeline Tours
Excellent breakfast (did I say wonderful French toast with carmalized bananas)
Beautiful view from 2nd floor balcony (over looking mature vineyards)
Large room with the largest bathroom I have ever seen in a B&B
Room and lobby very clean
Helpful and friendly staff
Great appetizers and wine
Beautiful area

Cons:

The room was so large that the avarage size TV in the corner appeared to be too small for such a large room.

Overall:
We heard that it needs to be renovated that the rooms and lobby were showing some age. We did not see this though some of the outside stairs and railings showing wear and in need of paint. After making this observation, we were told that they are closing down for six months (beginning November 2012) to renovate the whole place. Our room the Syrah, was large and did not need any renovation, but they are still going to refresh all rooms. Can't wait to see how wonderful after all this is done. I would highly recommend this B&B.

Room Tip: The Syrah room was large with a great view. Make sure you get to the wineries in the area.

I have been a big fan of the Summerwood wines for almost 4 years, and my daughter, son-in-law and myself had the opporunity in October 2012, to visit the winery and stay at the Inn.

I was very pleased with the overall property and every member of their staff goes the extra distance to make sure that you are pampered and satisfied with every detail. The room was great along the late night deserts they put in your room when turning down the beds. Breakfast was amazing on the outdoor patio, allowing us to soak up the view of the vines and rolling hillside.

Elizabeth at the wine tasting room was simply amazing. She is extremely knowledgeable on every wine they offer and was a pleasure to visit with. It was also impressive to meet the wine maker and to see the barrel room. I do not know how Summerwood ranks in size among other wine makers, but they are huge on quality and service to their customers. I am looking forward to visiting after the major remodeling of the Inn.

my Wife and I have stayed here many times in the last few years. We are members of a few wineries in the area and try to get to Paso Robles twice a year . Summerwood is a very peaceful and tranquil place to stay. We usually book the twilight room which is not a "floral" as the other rooms. It has a view of the front part of the home , which is not as good as the other rooms that face the vineyard. That view is exceptional. The wine that they give you in the room is always great. In fact , the Summerwood winery has great wine , although a little pricey. when you book a room you get breakfast served every morning and it has always been great. You also get wine and cheese in the afternoon , Something my wife looks forward to everyday. The rooms could use a little updating but are still nice. We do really like this place , it feels like home.

We stayed here on our Honeymoon for one night in April 2012 and wished we could have stayed for the entire week!!! I'm telling you- this place is spectacular. The service and the food were wonderful. We had chocolate covered strawberries and champagne waiting for us in our room when we arrived. The inn keeper brought us breakfast in bed the next morning and made us a picnic lunch in the afternoon. The chef is extremely talented with gourmet treats! The grounds are immaculate with beautiful flowers and fresh herbs growing. Our room had extraordinary views of the vineyards. Trust me- we will be going back for our anniversary! We love the Summerwood!!!

I really can't say enough good things about the Summerwood Inn. My husband and I enjoyed every single minute of our stay. Each morning we woke up to a beautiful view of the vineyard and then walked down to the gorgeous patio to have a gourmet breakfast prepared by the chef. The Inn is located near many of the wineries in Paso so my husband and I spent a day biking to 5 of the closest tasting rooms (Including Summerwood's) which were all fantastic. At 5pm, we would go back to the Inn to enjoy the hors d'oevres and wine, which were also prepared by the amazing chef. The entire staff is absolutely lovely and very helpful. As a couple reviewers noted, the decor at the Inn may seem a bit dated. It really just adds to the charm. They did mention that they are going to renovate this Fall/Winter. I can't wait to go back and see the improvements.

Room Tip: We stayed in Syrah and LOVED it!
