Up at reasonable time, repack my stuff, breakfast (forgo the potatoes today, too greasy). Checkout and cab to union station. The tour has booked me on the Coastal Starlight. Had to get there well in advance to check in & get my seat. Train was running a bit late. I have a window seat and when we finally board I discovered it is upstairs. Yay! The chap next to me was a very friendly Aussie who is now a US citizen, told me what ...
California is well known for its wines, and I discovered they have a wide range of varieties other than the Zinfadels and Merlots they are know for back home.
Alan and Denise took us to Paso Robles region to try some of the local wines. It was a stunning day and great to see ...
... while overhead pelicans, cormorants and seagulls flew past. Soon we were driving along Big Sur, with its impressive coastline of cliffs and rocks and several bridges built in the 1930s. We stopped off for a burrito before continuing on, the road becoming more twisty and the pampas grass giving way to scrubland. An RV in front kept the speed down to under 30mph, much to the frustration of many drivers. We arrived at the San Simeon motel ...
... Castle in our sights for the afternoon. The California coast is special and Morro Bay is a highlight. The massive rock/mountain just offshore creates a dramatic scene, both up close for miles down the coast line.
Just before San Simeon, we hang a hard right and negotiate our way over the coastal range to Paso Robles. This was a tip from Keely in Escondido, “Paso Robles is the most romantic little artsy town, with the greatest olive oil shop ...
... That will come in the fall.
Many of the neighboring fields were growing gold hay and purple hay. I have no idea what purple hay is, but it is pretty to look at and provides an eclectic picture intermingled with the grape fields.
We first visited Tobin James Winery. The building was very rustic, with a kind of southwestern theme. They did not allow dogs inside, so Beamer and I sat out on the porch while Steve went inside. He came out ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Orchard Hill Farm Bed & Breakfast Paso Robles
Our 4th visit to Paradise
This is our 4th return to a Shangri-La retreat. The pastoral views from bedroom windows and Normandy farmhouse style make this a charming oasis from city life.
The owners are friendly but protect your privacy, and having two suites away from their main house means you own the property!
The location amongst the wineries is superb, and the gourmet breakfasts are the best. There is no TV, and no internet, which is a definite plus for romance.
The only negative is that with only two rooms, this place fills up fast on winery weekends.
Great B & B
Charming B& B in the heart of Paso Robles wine country. Separate building with two rooms w/bath share a common kitchenet and living room. Wonderful decoration, many thoughtful details. The owners have wonderful tips on where to go and what to see. Breakfast in the main house is always different with fresh fruit and juice and delightful egg and vegetable dishes. The farm is on the top of a hill with great views, fresh breezes and delightful trees and landscaping. Oh, did I mention private balcony and fireplace!
As wine lovers, we travel often to Paso Robles, and I can't imagine a more welcoming place to come "home" to after a day of wine-tasting than Orchard Hill Farm. The two cozy bedrooms, which share a common living/kitchen area, are located in a hilltop carriage house with gorgeous view. Owners Debbie and Doug Thomsen live in the nearby estate, where Debbie serves a gourmet breakfast in her dining room or in the backyard, depending upon the season. Not only is Debbie a fabulous cook, but also has insider's knowledge of the best wineries, restaurants, etc., which she happily shares with her guests. She has even gotten us tickets to concerts at nearby Castoro Vineyards at the last minute. Debbie is the consummate inkeeper: fun, personable and connected to everything you could want to do or see in the area. Her thoughtfulness shows in many ways: a refrigerator stocked with water and bottles of white and red wine; freshly baked slices of cranberry, banana or other breads to nibble on; a bathroom basket containing every possible item you might have forgotten to pack, from toothpaste to hairspray. No detail of guests' comfort is overlooked. While there are lots of lodging choices in Paso Robles, we will always return to Orchard Hill Farm for the hospitality, incredible views from the private deck, comfy beds and wonderful, welcoming hosts.
There are some places that make you feel so good you never want to leave. Orchard Hill farms is just such a place.
My wife and I were guests at Orchard Hill 2 days mid-week late June. We had originally booked at Le Domaine, but the inn keeper there had to cancel our visit on short notice due to a family commitment. Orchard Hill was recommended as an alternative. We made contact with innkeeper Deborah Thomsen, who was most accommodating in booking our visit.
Fabulous Orchard Hill Farm
We just returned from a long weekend in Paso Robles, staying at Orchard Hill Farm. Orchard Hill is the best kept secret of Paso Robles. The Thomsens' hospitality was fabulous - warm, welcoming and unobtrusive. Both Debbi and Doug pride themselves on knowing the area and going the extra step to help find just what you are looking for. The accomodations are elegant but comfortable and if you like antiques you will enjoy looking at all of Debbi's finds which are throughout the carriage house and on the grounds of Orchard Hill. Breakfasts were delicious and not the run of the mill B & B fare. Plan a get-away and stay with the Thomsens at Orchard Hill Farm.
Orchard Hill Farm in the heart of Tuscany-like Paso Robles wine country is a delightfully decorated two-bedroom bed-and-breakfast, perfect for those who want to get away from it all and relax. Situated at the top of rolling hills with views of vineyard-covered hills, woods, farms, and the owner's gardens, it's quiet and beautiful, yet only minutes from wineries and fine restaurants. The owner, Debbie, is an interior designer by profession, so expect nicely tasteful and artfully arranged light country decor that's both elegant and simple. Each bedroom has its own full bath, and decks with wonderful views. There's a common room with gas fireplace, sitting area, dining area, and a kitchenette that includes a full-sized refrigerator and stove-top burners.
What a great place! This place has it all. Wonderful views of the surrounding vineyards from your private balconies, privacy (the accomodations are separate from the main house with only two units and a large shared area), a great hostess who loves to share her knowledge of the surrounding area (she steered us to some wonderful restaurants, wineries, etc. and we spent a very pleasant two hours with her each morning over a delicious breakfast), and very comfortable beds. You really feel like you are out in the country at the farm yet you are only a few miles away from wineries, restaurants, and a 20 minute drive to the coast. We passed by many other Inns and B&Bs in our travels through the area, and while they all looked appealing, I can't think of one that I would have preferred to stay at than the Orchard Hill Farm. I hope to return there some day.
We just spent a few delightful days at Orchard Hill Farm bed and breakfast in the Paso Robles wine region. The lovely guest house was perfect for our party of four. Our hosts, Deborah and Doug Thomsen could not have been nicer, or more accomodating. They treated us like friends, not just customers. Attached is a copy of an email I sent to Doug and Deborah. Hopefully, it will encourage others to try this lovely establishment.
