Honey Oak House at Laraneta Vineyards

Enjoy magnificent views across the vineyards . . .

A true Paso Robles Wine Country Experience

Honey Oak House is not just a Bed & Breakfast but a real getaway experience. We are located in a small valley of rolling hills, cattle ranches and vineyards. Laraneta Vineyards surrounds us with Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, providing a spectacular environment for our guests to enjoy at their leisure.

The house itself is a quarter century old family home. It has been converted to provide a true Bed & Breakfast experience for a limited number of guests. The name was a gift when one January an ancient oak near the house was pruned and a bee hive discovered. The bees have since left but the name remains.

gourmet kitchenThe three guests rooms at Honey Oak House are named for the three varieties of red grapes grown in the vineyards. All of the rooms have porches with table and chairs from which guests may enjoy the sunset over hundred year old oaks while sipping a glass of wine. This tranquil end to a busy day is one of the pleasures that makes Honey Oak House so unique.

Enjoy a walk along the drive in the early morning . . .

All the rooms have satellite TV, food centers, hair dryers, magnifying mirrors, air conditioning and internet access. The food centers have a garbage disposal, small refrigerator and microwave oven.

Porches surround Honey Oak House that are a favorite place for guests to relax and enjoy the natural surroundings. Sitting on the porch, enjoying rolling hills and the grape vines that surround you, it may be hard to believe but you are in one of the most popular tourist areas in California. Honey Oak House is 5 miles from Hwy 101, 12 miles from Paso Robles and 10 miles from Atascadero. Cambria is only 35 minutes to the west, San Simeon and Hearst Castle 45 minutes, and Lake Nacimiento a 30 minute drive to the east. There are golf courses, thermal hot springs and antique shops within a 15 minute drive.

the great room

Large, common room with big screen tv for your evenings.

While staying at Honey Oak House one feels a world away from LA or San Francisco. The clear clean tap water comes from a well. There are no street lights along Templeton Rd, no signals or noisy traffic. At night the stars shine out brightly and the moon is bright enough to walk by.

When you stay at Honey Oak House you will have a very personal experience. Melinda & Joe Laraneta are your hosts. The vineyards and olive orchard are an integral part of each day’s activities for the Laranetas. Joe & Melinda like nothing better than taking guests on tours, answering questions and tasting the wine and extra virgin olive oil they produce.

California's Central Coast is an area known for the production of excellent wines, olive oil, and the congeniality of its residents. They are busy people like most but they always have time for a smile. If you are looking for a weekend away from the city, Honey Oak House offers a True Paso Robles Wine Country Experience. For more information or to make a reservation please contact us. We look forward to having you as our guest and welcoming you to our home.
