I don’t know what else to call our stay with Kath and Wills - everything was Perfect. The location was perfect - woke up to a stunning view of the rolling hills of Paso Robles covered with vineyards. Reminded me of Tuscany. Plus you were close to everything, but away from the hustle and bustle. The room was perfect - we had a king bed (the Siena suite) huge shower, whirlpool tub, plush carpet - wonderful! Then the food - wow, just wow! We had Sunday Supper at the Villa - Chef Carter (former executive chef at the Playboy mansion) prepared a spectacular meal, all the guests brought a bottle of wine, so did Kath and Wills. It was great sitting around the table, enjoying a wonderful meal and talking to the other guests. Then there are the breakfasts that Chef Carter prepared. I’m not sure which one I liked best. They were all delicious, and we were so full we didn’t eat lunch. Plus, eating out on the patio, watching the hummingbirds and goldfinches made for a wonderful start to the day. All in all, all I can say is just go! You will have a wonderful time.

Property's Favorite Review
This was our second visit to the Canyon Villa. We had a four day stay in this wonderful home and everyday was special. We were greeted warmly as old friends. Our room was beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. Housekeeping is unobtrusive, fast and careful. The staff are warm and welcoming and simply want you to have a good time in their home. Every morning we were able to enjoy a walk on the property. Breakfast was always on time and the food was exceptional. In the evenings, we arranged to have a charcuterie board prepared to accompany the wines that we discovered. All the food was fresh, farm to table, chosen and exquisitely prepared by our own personal master Chef Wills. I can only say great things about our visit to the Canyon Villa. I have already made our reservation to return. I look forward to enjoying the company of our hosts and their staff.

My husband and I found this beautiful gem and can't say enough amazing things about The Canyon Villas. Chef Wills and Kath were genuine hosts who truly know the meaning of hospitality. Their attention to detail made our time there very special. We spent a day cooking with Chef Wills in "kitchen stadium" and it was neat to see his creativity come alive as he shared his years of culinary knowledge with us. The food was spectacular and absolutely beautiful. A true work of art made by an artist. We also loved Sunday Supper as we were able to share a meal with Chef Wills and Kath that he prepared. We also enjoyed telling stories and just chatting with them. Chef Wills and Kath know how to do it right and we are forever grateful for the time we were able to spend at The Canyon Villas. Add it to your bucket list. You need to go. We hope to return.

This was our second visit to Canyon Villa Inn and it was just as spectacular as the first. The hosts, Kath and Wills, provide exceptional surroundings and service. They are attentive without being overly so. The location, high on a hill, offer peace and quiet and exceptional views. It is about 5-10 minutes west of Paso Robles, so conveniently close to vineyards, but also easy to get into town. Chef Wills is a true artist with food. Breakfasts and late afternoon small bites are as good as anywhere. In fact, the respect for food ingredients and presentation remind me of Europe, where they also respect food (sadly not so common in the U.S.). I highly recommend extending to a 3-night stay to include Sunday evening so that you can join the spectacular Sunday dinner prepared by Chef Wills, where a local wine maker also joins and provides a wine tasting and presentation prior to dinner. Inn guests bring a bottle of wine to share at Sunday dinner. The Sunday dinner is elective, and we've participated both trips and absolutely love the relaxed surroundings and conversations with the hosts and other guests.

Spent a fantastic long weekend at the Villa for a birthday celebration and can’t wait to return! Kath and Wills run a top notch place. It is a beautiful setting and so welcoming and clean. The breakfasts and wine hours are amazing, and the Sunday dinner is ridiculously good - so much so that we arranged a private dinner at the Villa on Monday - which I highly recommend. We ate at several great restaurants during our stay, including the Michelin starred restaurant at Justin (which I would also highly recommend), and the private dinner at the Villa was the best! One of the best aspects of our stay was getting to know Wills and Kath and the other guests staying there with us. We will definitely be back!!

I cannot think of a better place to relax. Canyon villas exceeded our expatations. The room was sensational, the meals we had done by the owner Chef Wills and his wife Katherine were incredable . Their kindness, help were nothing more than great. If you need to relax in the wine country of California think about this wonderful place

My husband and I had a fantastic experience staying at the Canyon Villa! We stayed at the end of April. The property has panoramic views of canyons and vineyards. The suites are beautifully decorated and exceptionally clean. Chef Wills and Kath are wonderful hosts. In fact, Kath put together a very special couples package for us at the price point that I was seeking. It was a luxurious splurge but well worth it! Our package included a custom four course dinner by Chef Wills with a paired wine selection. That was fabulous! We had a couples massage and monogram robes to take home. We also had a lovely Canyon Villa monogrammed insulated wine bag for our wine purchases at the local wineries. A three course breakfast is included with every stay and a wine hour with select wine choices and chef prepared snacks each night. We met new friends and we really enjoyed the entire experience. It feels like a very secluded intimate stay but it's only minutes away from all that Paso Robles has to offer. We plan to come back with other couples in the near future! We highly recommend the Canyon Villa for a romantic couples get away!

Elegant, relaxing with marvelous hosts. Our second time here, we hope to come more frequently. The layout, the food, the decor. Stay once and you will be back. The breakfast is delicious and beautiful. Ask about staying Sunday night when they cook dinner. Wonderful food. Paso is a place to wine and dine. To come back and relax at the Villa is perfect. Get away from from everyday life here. The owners are meticulously clean. They do so much to be sure you love your stay

My husband and I had an absolutely wonderful anniversary weekend at the Canyon Villa with incomparable proprietors Chef William Carter and Katherine Bloxsom-Carter. This was our 5th visit to the villa in 9 years. It just keeps getting better. We ate wonderful food prepared by Chef Wills, drank many great bottles of wine, and made new friends. The rooms are comfy and cozy with unexpected extravagances such as pillow spray, heavy robes, and room heating by an electric fireplace. While there is wifi, don't expect to plant yourself in front of a television or computer. This is the place to go to unplug and get back in touch with each other, the wonderful area, amazing art, great wines, and wonderful food. Chef Wills frequents the local farmers market for the freshest ingredients and prepares as much from scratch as humanly possible. It is a joy to watch him work preparing every detail and seeing the passion he puts into the food he conceives.

Oceanside, California2 contributions
Our family and friends just returned from another visit to Paso Robles, one of California’s premier wine regions. While a wine-buying trip is always a treat, our trip was made even more memorable because of our stay at The Canyon Villa. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Kath, who, along with her husband, Chef Wills, is the proprietor of The Canyon Villa, we felt the tension from our six-hour drive melt away. This is our third visit to The Canyon Villa. Often when returning to the site of a well-loved memory, the new experience fails to live up to what we remembered; that is not the case with The Canyon Villa, as the quality of the accommodations, services, and experience remain exceptional. Because The Canyon Villa is intimate, with only four guest bedrooms, the experience is warm and inviting – like staying at a villa in the Italian countryside, only better! Every evening began with Wine Hour, including thoughtfully selected wines from California’s central coast and small bites masterfully prepared by Chef Wills. While excellent culinary experiences may be found locally, after returning to the Villa after a day of wine tasting, we found no reason to venture out again. Instead, we arranged to have Chef Wills, a Michelin Star-trained chef, prepare our dinner each night – and let me tell you, each dinner with its artistic presentation was as much a treat for the eyes as it was for our tastebuds. After dinner, we settled in front of the living room fireplace, knowing that we would soon be rewarded with an excellent night’s sleep in a spacious guest room overlooking the rolling hills of Paso. Each morning we were treated to a delicious breakfast complete with freshly baked croissants, followed by a fruit course, and then the main course. Fortified, we headed out to visit one or two of Paso’s more than 350 world-class wineries. When traveling to Paso, we always plan to stay three or more days over the weekend to enjoy Sunday Supper, a five-star evening featuring wines presented by a local winery and Chef Wills’ fantastic cuisine. The Canyon Villa, with Kath and Chef Wills’ warm hospitality, is our happy place! We’ve already booked our next visit.
