Paso Robles area - Lodging suggestions, must be kid friendly
The title says most of it but I am also curious if anyone can recommend a cabin as well. We have always B & B'd in Cali before. Will be traveling in April over Easter weekend. Thx, SA

There's a poster on the Europe forum who's from Paso Robles. Do a search for "student in france" or Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. She probably could help.

The girl in Pau ?? I had forgotten that is where she is from. Thx

For kid friendly, I'd think about staying in the Morro Bay area (unless there's a specific reason for Paso Robles. Morro Bay has the waterfront which would be fun for smaller kids.

Finally got to this board -- I hope I can add my 2 cents ..<BR><BR>&quot;Kid Friendly&quot; is hard because Paso Robles is catering to the wine-tasters and older tourists. The town has 26,000 people, and it's easy to navigate, but there isn't things for kids to do unless you want to drive to the beach or going horse back riding.<BR><BR>San Luis is the bigger city 30 minutes south which is home to middle-class families and our university Cal Poly. It's very touristic for students/adults but not kids. <BR><BR>I would also suggest Morro Bay or Avila Beach, which has been completely rebuilt and the weather shouldn't be too bad.<BR><BR>Santa Barbara is definitely bigger and 2 hours south with a GREAT zoo and it is right on the water.

Sorry, I should have been more specific. My daughter is only 9 months old. There will be 4 adults + her. Many of the cottages &amp; what not won't take kids of any age &amp; we're not into resorts, etc. Just looking for a relaxing spot close to either the wineries or the beach. We are some of the previously mentioned 'wine-tasters' &amp; that is our primary reason for going but would not mind staying @ the beach either. The options are much greater in the Sonoma area w/Bodega Bay &amp; etc. but we were looking to explore the Paso Robles area this time. I have to date, found one place that kind of fits. Thats why I was hoping someone had some first hand knowledge.

Okay,<BR><BR>I did a little research and here is link to B&amp;Bs in Paso Robles found at the Paso Robles Chamber Commerce:<BR><BR>;category=Lodging:Bed+&a mp;+Breakfast+Inns<BR><BR>Arbor Inn (PO Box 3260, Paso Robles, CA 93447-3260, (805) 227-4673) has a good reputation (once a winery) and has been around for a while. Unfortunately I can't find a website! But I just found that Frommer's rated the Arbor Inn (along with Paso Robles in general, wineries, etc.) and you can find that at<BR><BR>Anyways, I hope this helps .. I checked out many of the websites for local B&amp;Bs and they are quite lovely.<BR><BR>

We rented a beach house in Cambria, I believe it is only a 20-30 min. drive to Paso Robles wine country. We enjoyed staying in the peaceful village of Cambria. There are several vacation rental companies in town. What a beautiful area to visit.

Cambria is a beautiful and relaxing place to stay and is a scenic 30 minute drive from the vineyards in Paso Robles. We stayed at the Fog Catcher Inn. Across the street from the beach and has nice cozy rooms with fireplaces. Breakfast is included, and I noticed lots of families staying there on my recent visits. <BR><BR>The places book early, so you'll need to commit soon.
