The Inn Paradiso Will Make Your Next Visit To The Paso Robles Wine Region A Dream Come True

By Brent Lambert

You don’t need to be a wine lover to enjoy the treasure that is Paso Robles, the stunning wine region that’s only a 3-hour drive north of Los Angeles, halfway to San Francisco. From the area’s exquisite natural beauty, to its ‘fountain of youth’ secrets, to its incredible food and irresistible locals, Paso Robles is nothing short of a dream destination. But to take your stay to the next level there is only one place on your bucket list of hotels: the magnificent Inn Paradiso.

Nestled just a few minutes’ drive east of all the very best wineries in Paso Robles, the Inn Paradiso is any traveler’s dream come true. Owned, operated, and curated by Steve Werndorf, the Inn Paradiso is much more than just a hotel — it’s a living art gallery as well. Each of the inn’s six suites comes with its own unique theme which inspires the artwork within.

The Carlo Mollino Suite was named after the 20th century Italian designer, photographer and furniture maker. The María Sabina Suite honors the legendary shaman of the same name who rose to global prominence for her groundbreaking healing work with magic mushrooms in Oaxaca, Mexico. The Octavio Paz Suite was named for the Mexican poet and diplomat who won the 1990 Nobel Prize for Literature. The Antoni Gaudí Loft brings the spirit of the iconic Spanish architect into every detail of its design: from the sculpted iron hinges and ornaments, to the carved wood elements (in the 1970s the loft was a hidden room, used by drug dealers who owned it at the time to hide their contraband). And two brand new suites also just opened: the two-bedroom Paradiso Apartment with its huge stone fireplace, steam shower and professional kitchen; as well as The Studio, a light-filled art studio with a wood-burning stove.

Each morning when guests come down to the dining room for their delicious breakfast (complimentary, of course), they might want to unwind afterwards in the massive log structure living room space of Inn Paradiso. Anchored by its enormous stone hearth fireplace, the living room is quite possibly the coziest in all of Paso Robles. Whether you want to curl up with a good book, or watch the sunset by the fire, this space has the miraculous effect of making all your worries disappear.

If you come back home to the Inn Paradiso after a long, hot day of wine-tasting and want nothing more than to cool down and rehydrate, the property has a dreamy kidney shape pool waiting just for you. Surrounded by tall cypress trees, your leisure time by the pool will have you convinced you’re in the middle of Tuscany.

The New York Times raves about the Inn Paradiso, describing as “like no other place.” With just one visit you will understand precisely what this means. And you will most definitely want to return again and again. Visit to book your stay.
