       Very comfortable for us. 




Our group of 3 couples and 2 children enjoyed the space to spread out. The kitchen was well equipped and large; the stove and refrigerator were excellent for this size house. There were plenty of chairs for the dining table and lots of china and tableware available for meals.

We loved the pool table and hot tub - we may return during swim season to enjoy the pool.

Amazing place for family and friends! 





We truly enjoyed our time here. It was the perfect location for us to spend time with my son who goes to Cal Poly SLO. The drive to the campus was easy. This property is gorgeous, the home is well maintained, and the owners are very attentive. We appreciated the attention to detail throughout the home. The pictures are accurate; however, they cannot truly capture the peaceful setting. We will be back! Thank you to Linda and Gary for everything.

Spacious, lovely, fun, conveniently located, country home 

Dates of Stay:  August 31, 2018

We rented this lovely home for 3 nights over a long weekend. There were 8 adults and 2 children and we all enjoyed this very clean, spacious, comfortable, quiet home. Gary and Linda, the owners, are very responsive and attentive and live close by. When we arrived, they had a gift basket with 2 bottles of wine and other items for us. 
The kitchen is nice and spacious and well stocked. Everything is labeled so you know where to find things in the kitchen. There are some basic spice items provided as well that are nice to have if you do want to cook. 
This home is in a great location. It is easy to get to Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo and many wineries are a short drive away. We also went to Hearst Castle one morning. 
We had a lot of fun in the home. It has a nice swimming pool (unheated), lots of pool toys, a nice size Jacuzzi, a great pool table on the deck, darts on another deck, corn hole, games, etc. 
We also rented the nice Casita behind the pool. The kids actually enjoyed having their own space to hang out. 
There is only one TV in this large home. There are no TV’s in the bedrooms. And they don’t have a DVR to record shows. Also, Wi-Fi is spotty and did not work well and my Verizon service also did not work well. So we were forced to disconnect from our electronics and enjoy the beautiful surrounding, talk, play games, watch the deer in the backyard, etc. 
Overall, this is a lovely home for families and friends to hang out in.

I organized a little trip with some of my old Cal Poly friends.  I found Lodge West on VRBO, but booked directly with Linda with no problems.  The house perfectly fit all of our 5 little families.  We had kids ages 1 to 8 and they all enjoyed the house.  There were plenty of toys and books for the kids to entertain themselves.  The kids also loved the pool and piano.  Pool, hot tub, pool table, and bbq were all utilized.  There was even a crib, high chair, and lots of other baby gear available for use.  Everything is clearly labeled and Linda was very easy to reach when we had any questions.  All the rooms were quite roomy and there was lots of space from any neighbors so everything felt very private.  It's not very far from the freeway and the grocery store and a short drive to SLO for our Firestone tri-tip ritual.  Overall, we had a fantastic trip and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

We stayed at this fantastic house over Memorial Day Weekend 2018 with three other families. All together we were 8 adults and 6 kids ranging from 8 mo to 5 years. The house was PERFECT! We call it Rancho Relaxo. There was plenty of room for all of us. The rooms are a nice size and beds comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped, and the bathrooms were nice and clean. It’s also a very safe house for kids and Linda was so sweet in putting out heaps of toys for the kids to play with, as well as a high chair and crib in one of the rooms. We used all of these things! The hot tub on the deck was great. We also spent lots of time by and in the pool. The pool was big and nice and clean. The property itself is also just gorgeous quiet, private, and looking out onto oak trees. The older kids loved exploring the woodland. We also played out front where there’s a nice lawn. While there are lots of activities to do nearby (zoo, fire house, beach, etc.), were found ourselves having enough fun to simply spend the full 3 days at the house. Honestly, we can not say more about this vacation rental - it was just awesome. As one of the dads commented, the vacation was surprisingly relaxing and enjoyable (despite 4 families and 3 infants!) and that’s because the house and property were so great and Linda and Gary were so kind. We WILL be back to Rancho Relaxo

This is probably the most comfortable of the many vacation rentals I've stayed in. Casual, clean, and exceptionally well-maintained and equipped, my group of friends and I had a wonderful time. We came to the area for a long weekend of cycling, wine tasting, and dining out, but the property is so enjoyable when we weren't cycling we ended up just hanging out. We cooked up many a meal in the kitchen (other than food, it had everything we needed to prepare meals and store leftovers) and on the wood deck with its large gas grill. Our group of nine, including a couple of daytime visitors, found the place very spacious both inside and outside. The deck has plenty of seating and includes a nice hot tub and pool table, and around the corner from that is a pool with more area for lounging. Inside and out, the place is very well cared for and feels more like you're staying in someone's home rather than a rental. The owners are located nearby and were very accommodating and unobtrusively checked-in with us by text from time to time to make sure we were comfortable. Additionally, the location is quiet and secure, yet just a short drive to restaurants and other activities. If you are cyclists, the area has many great rides, Peachy Canyon being one of my favorites. We hope to return to the area again, and this place is our top choice to stay. Thank you Linda and Gary for the exceptional hospitality and beautiful property!

The home is large enough for a big family or group of friends and well appointed with everything one needs for a weekend or a week away. We only rented the property for three days over a weekend and enjoyed the swimming pool (unheated) and looking at the stars at night. The listing was accurate regarding the location and the layout of the rooms. The property is very clean. Linda provided excellent customer service when the hot tub was found to not be working and unusable during our visit. I would recommend Sculpterra Winery, Justin Vineyards, Il Cortilo restaurant and Bistro Laurent restaurant for dinner (Paso Robles). There is a Vons in Atascadero that has everything one needs. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed to make breakfast in the morning for 10 people - including some welcome items from Gary and Linda - and the living room worked well for conversation and board games. We spent a lot of time out of the home exploring wineries and dining options in Paso Robles but while we were there we found everything easy to use and labeled well. There are lots of deer to see in the area. Gary and Linda have a beautiful place and work hard to make you fell welcome and at home. Thanks for everything!

My Response

James - Gary has installed the new hot tub heater. So next time you return maybe for a winter excursion you can enjoy the hot tub. Thank you for leaving the home in such perfect condition we enjoyed having you all

We were a collection of ages from northern and southern CA, meeting in the middle at Atascadero. Eleven in all, including 3 between 3 and 8 years old, 4 in their 30s, and two of us "elders." The big pool, hot tub, and beautiful pool table out on the deck were all huge hits. The house is spacious and comfortable, easy on a single story, and wonderfully equipped with toys and games for all ages. Linda and Gary are consummate hosts, including wine and chocolates as a welcome! Atascadero turned out to be a brilliant location, hot during the day for swimming in August, and cool enough for a sweater at night. We made easy day trips to San Luis Obispo and Paso Robles, wine toured down to Cambria, and stopped in Morro Bay. We also visited the neighborhood zoo, with its gorgeous red panda, Malaysian tiger, and spider monkey. We didn't quite get to the pedal boats on the lake. Next time! We will definitely be back.

My Response

It sounds like it was a perfect vaction and thank you for the care you gave our home. Our area truly has something for everyone.

We had a relaxing and fun family vacation. We enjoyed the time we had there to unplug from work and reconnect with our family and friends. The house was spacious, comfortable, clean and quiet.  The pool and spa provided lots of fun for the kids and we really appreciated the plush pool towels that were provided. We took a few day trips to Avila Beach (kid friendly beach), Morro Bay (kayaking and salt water taffy) and Cayucos (whale and dolphin watching off the pier)  which were fun excursions but we always found ourselves wanting to get back to the property to enjoy the pool and spa “one-more-time” before sunset. We enjoyed BBQ ribs, hot dogs, and hamburgers in the back yard and snacked on s’mores in the evenings while star gazing. The kitchen was well stocked with plates, bowls, glasses, cookware and just about anything you could need.  You can tell the owners go to the extra effort to make sure their guests have a quality stay. The weather was hot and sunny when we visited but we were very comfortable because of the cooling afternoon breezes and the many windows that allow you to capture the cooler night air with lots of ceiling fans to keep the air circulating. I truly look forward to visiting this property again. Thank you for giving us the vacation we needed.

What an amazing spot for a little vacation. Our family loved this house and all it had to offer. The bedrooms are all spread out so almost everyone can have their own private pocket to themselves; along with their own bathroom. Super clean, all amenities provided, Linda has thought of everything. The pool, hot tub, pool table, corn hole, etc., all gave us tons to do. The house felt very comfortable and is very big. It was so nice to drink wines that we had gotten the prior day while laying around the pool, watching deer roam in the hills behind the house, listening to music and firing up the BBQ. We will definitely be back. Thanks for providing the perfect home away from home.

We visited this property for a long weekend to celebrate my daughter's graduation from Cal Poly . We had 4 generations in attendance, from my 88 year old mother to my 5 year old granddaughter. We all had a fabulous time! The pool and Jacuzzi were a big hit, but we also enjoyed playing pool and cornhole. The house was spacious and very comfortable, and it had every amenity you could ever need. It was close enough to SLO without getting in the fray of the traffic and congestion that happens during graduation week. We have recommended this home to others, and we will definitely be back.

Positives; Labeling of where items were placed was great, nice amenities upon arrival (wine and chocolates), very quiet and private even though neighbors were not that far away, plenty of room for everyone, and owners put lots of effort into making their guests comfortable. Definitely a place that worked for us 4 couples. Negatives; Issue with the hot tub that owner tried to fix but was unable at the time, garbage disposal would have been nice, wireless worked but kept kicking us out after a short period of time so had to sign back in. Overall, you have a lovely place and we all could tell that you take great pride in making it a comfortable homey rental. Thanks for a lovely stay!

We are truly sorry the hot tub was not working while you were here. We have purchased a new one, however, we did find it was working after you had left. We do not have a garbage disposal as we are on a septic system. We are sorry we have not been able to get an internet service provider that is more reliable - we do have that noted on the website and we apologize again for any inconvenience it created.

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Linda & Gary's house! The house was very clean and spacious. There is so much to do with the pool, hot tub, pool table, deer watching, croquet set, and is perfect for a family gathering. We had 6 adults and 4 children (age 5 and under) and there was plenty of space and activities to keep everyone entertained! Linda & Gary also provided a high chair, crib, baby monitor, & toys when I told them the ages of the children which was so convenient! We really enjoyed our visit and would definitely book the Lodge West again if we are in the area!

We made this house our base camp for our daughter's wedding at nearby Santa Margarita Ranch. It is spacious and absolutely beautiful. On the morning of the ceremony, the 3 hair & makeup artists asked for the place with the best natural light, and were delighted with the large back deck - with each having their own electric outlet to set up their station for the girls in the wedding party, with gorgeous views as a bonus. The backyard also served as a relaxing spot for a post-wedding BBQ for the immediate families on the day after the wedding - with everyone enjoying the pool, the hot tub and the billiard table. The house itself is extremely comfortable, with nicely appointed bedrooms, cozy linens, and lots of seating areas both inside and out. The kitchen is very well equipped, with fully functional appliances and nicely labeled drawers and cupboards. Owner, Linda, went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed and her care for the house really shows.

Our large family all shared this wonderful home that was well situated between wine country and beach towns. The layout was clearly well thought out in the building of it, so that there is a central outdoor deck with hot tub that overlooks open scenery, with the pool area to the side. We didn't rent the casita but the 4 bedrooms were large enough for the 7 of us plus 2 kids. The hosts were readily available but left us to our privacy throughout the stay. Overall we would definitely come back!

We would return to this property in a flash! An annual gathering of eight friends, six from the Bay Area and two from SoCal found this location a perfect central meeting area for our 3-day retreat. And the host property owners were as friendly, accommodating and welcoming as we have ever experienced. The moment you walk into the house, you are greeted with a comfortable country great room, beautifully adorned with inviting sofa's, lounges and a grand dining room table that became center stage for our evening meals and entertainments. Then, there is the kitchen! It was expansive and fully loaded with quality cookware and appliances. Oftentimes there would be six of us milling around in the kitchen, all at the same time with plenty of room to spare. Most of us love to cook and pretend we are 5 star chef's, thank God for good wine! All were impressed with the kitchen. We woke each morning to a family of deer, birdsong, gentle breezes, a soak in hot tub with our coffee and plenty of privacy. In the afternoons, cocktails and billiards on the outdoor backyard deck became a favorite gathering place. The Casita, framed by the pool, proved to be perfect for one of our members. Atascadero is centrally and perfectly located in the heart of Pinot Noir wine county, local farmer's markets and day trips to SLO and the small town of Templeton. This location is a treasure!

I agree with the other reviews. This property is superior. It is spacious, very clean and well equipped. Gary and Linda are friendly, helpful and unobtrusive. We were busy getting ready for a wedding and never did need the tour from the hosts since everything is so well labeled. Forget the crowded, over-priced beach properties. This is better! The pool is spotless and you'll have the place to yourselves. My family of seven adults couldn't stop thanking me for finding this fabulous place.

This home is perfect. We were 2 adults and 6 boys and we had a wonderful time. The pool and two jacuzzi's kept the boys busy from morning to night.

Linda and Gary, the owners, were there within moments of our arrival to show us around and explain all the inner workings of their lovely home. I would return In a heartbeat if I am in the area again!

The house was beautiful and has something for everyone, there is plenty of room for a large group. The pool was really nice and the outside deck area was perfect, what a great backyard! We even got to see some deer. Town is close including a large variety of wineries and some golf courses. Morro Bay was just a short drive to enjoy the beach and buy some fresh fish. Next time we are in the area we will stay here again! I highly recommend this rental property for the perfect family vacation!

The property is as advertised and highly recommended. The hosts were very good about communication and settings things up for a smooth move-in and stay. The amenities are great, especially for a large group. We would love to come back and stay at this property. The two minor things I would highly recommend from the hosts to improve is the wireless and adding extra toilet paper and towels. The wireless is not very strong and has a limited range. I would upgrade. Apart from that, everything was excellent!

This house and property absolutely exceeded every expectation that we had! The pictures on the website do not do it justice, it is much larger than it appears, with the master bedroom (and Jacuzzi tub) isolated from the other three bedrooms in another wing of the house, so we never heard our 14 month and 20 month old grandchildren crying in the night. The TWO hot tubs and pool were a wonderful perk for the grandchildren and adults alike, and it was enchanting to see a doe and two tiny fawns come down the hill in the “back yard”, while another evening there were 5-6 deer in the front of the house, including two bucks with decent-sized antlers. The kitchen was spacious and had everything a person needs to cook a gourmet meal, as well as a nice BBQ grill on the rear deck. The pool table on the rear deck was also very popular! The entire house was very clean and organized, with all switches and drawers labeled so there was no confusion at all; it was one of the easiest houses to stay in that we have ever rented. Pool towels were provided separate from the bath towels, and a very nice croquet set provided a new experience for several family members who had never played the game before. Lots of parking space with two spaces covered by a carport, and room for multiple other cars in the drive. The house is set well back from the road, with a wooded hillside in the back, and so was extremely quiet. We also rented the casita back by the pool, a small house with its own bathroom, kitchen, and queen bed and sitting area, which was perfect for one of our couples. The owners Linda and Gary dropped by the first afternoon (after checking with us) to give us a tour of the house and property with all its amenities, and show us how to work various equipment and appliances, and were extremely helpful and personable. We only had one question, “Why did you ever give up living in this house?” It made for a truly special time for three of our children’s families to get together for 4 days while our fourth child was getting married nearby in S.L.O. When we left, my wife and I both wished we could have stayed a month. We give it our strongest recommendation for anybody needing to accommodate a large number of people. We had 8 adults, two teenagers, and two babies, but there was so much space indoors and out that it never felt “close” in the slightest, and in fact one could entertain quite a few more people than what we had and still be extremely comfortable. We're ready to move in!

We truly appreciated the review and as we said it was just time for us to down size a little and let others enjoy our beautiful area. Thank you so much and we hope to see you in the future.

Gary and Linda were gracious, accommodating and welcoming. Our time on their beautiful property was just amazing. We have no complaints! Note that the area has spotty cell phone coverage. This was true with Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint.


Owner Response:

Yes we are in a little bit of a canyon and depending were you are located on the property reception may be spotty. We apologize for this, but our location is worth it.

Thank you so much Linda and Gary for the wonderful stay at Lodge West! Your home was even more beautiful than the pictures showed. The home was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed for our stay. The spacious house was perfect for my family of teenagers as well as my mom and dad and my brother's family of little ones. The pool and 2 hot tubs were amazing! We loved grilling on the back deck, which was so private as it backed up to undeveloped land with rolling hills and lots of trees. The house was an easy drive to town with grocery stores, as well as a short drive to nearby wineries and beaches. My entire family agreed that it was the best vacation rental that we ever stayed at. Linda and Gary were wonderful hosts and thought of all the little details to make us feel at home. Thank you!


Owner Response:

We are so happy you had a great time you have a wonderful family and it was so nice to also meet your mom and dad. We do hope you will return in the future and thank you for graciously caring for our home.

We so enjoyed our stay but more than that. Even before we arrived, Linda was working behind the scenes getting some baby items we needed such as a crib and high chair. Then when we arrived, we also noticed they had provided a number of children's toys and books for our grandson to enjoy. The house, pool, and jacuzzis (yes two), and grounds are so enjoyable including the daily visits from deer and wild turkeys. Gary and Linda met us soon after arriving and were more than gracious and accommodating. The home itself has a large living area and open kitchen which made it wonderful to entertain our extended family. There is a large bedroom with private bath on one side of the house (allowing for some private time for my wife and I) along with three bedrooms and two baths on the other side with easy access to the outdoors. The views from front or back of the house are beautiful with a large green belt in back and private views from all sides. Bottom line, this home was more than we expected and our kids just kept telling us how wonderful the stay was for them. I highly recommend this vacation rental for any visit to the Central Coast area. It is very convenient to town with easy access to Hwy 101 and all that the local wine country provides.

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the care and consideration you gave our home. We love sharing our home with folks and it makes it enjoyable for us knowing others enjoy it as well.

This was a great property and as described. There were many things to do, all was clean and well-maintained. The kids enjoyed the stay, as much as the adults. Even though we see deer in our area, we enjoyed watching the herd of about 20 deer that came to visit each evening. It was maybe a little over a half hour to the beach, but was an easy drive, with little traffic and no need to deal with all the people after leaving town. Plenty of room for cooking, as well as two tables to use for eating and games and a kitchen counter. The owners were very accommodating, leaving a turkey roaster for us to bake our turkey in. This was our first time to rent a house this way for the whole family and it was a good experience.

We always enjoy meeting our guests when they arrive even if we are not able to meet all the guests. This area is a perfect for families living in different areas to meet in the middle. Thank you for your care of our home.

If you're looking for a great get-away that still has all the comforts of home, look no further. The owners met us when we arrived and were very friendly, accommodating and informative.We were traveling with a large group including a baby and didn't have room in our vehicle for the crib. The owners went out of their way to provide a lovely crib and mobile for our convenience. How nice! The home has a very private feel without feeling isolated. We felt there was plenty of room to relax, even with a large group. We had read the pictures don't do it justice and that was right! It was better than described, spotless and up-to-date. The town it's located in is small but there are sufficient businesses to satisfy any needs one may have. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone and we personally are planning to stay again in the future!

This is truly a great place for large group! It is a short distance to town. Pomar winery is about 25 minute drive which have good wine & great views. Linda & Gary are a really nice couple. They greeted us on arrival. Then came back when we have settled & gave a grand tour. The home is immaculate, spas / pool clean & grounds well maintained. The patio is perfect place to hang out with plenty of shade. The photos don't do the home justice. I wound reserve this home in a heart beat. Thank you Linda & Gary!

We recently rented Lodge West house for a long weekend - two families. The house is large and the property very well maintained. Comfy inside and out - perfect for a getaway. The owners were there to greet us and show us around. Very friendly and quick to get back to us when we had questions. The area is beautiful - convenient to Paso, Templeton and wineries in the area. We had a great time just hanging around the house - sitting by the pool (sunny!) and eating outside on the deck.

I stayed at Linda & Gary's home away from home for the 2014 summer solstice to celebrate a wedding in Santa Margarita and it was truly spectacular. Linda & Gary gave us a quick tour when we first arrived to show us how to use the amenities, and quite a lot of amenities there are - 2 hot tubs, 1 pool, a casita with bathroom, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, AND a pool table for kicks - it was really quite impressive. The pictures don't give the size of the house justice, because it is BIG and perfectly spacious for a group of people that wish to get away to a warm pool vacation. Only issue we had was with getting a cab to drive us back home, so i recommend rides be pre-arranged days in advance. Would love to stay here again and would highly recommend this fabulous home owned by a lovely couple :).
