Lirio Cottage is named for the lily pads in the pond just steps away. Nestled under a majestic Valley Oak; this rustic, but civilized, canvas cabin, complete with running hot water, shower and bath allows for magnificent views in every direction. As you awake in the morning, the rising sun warms you as the songs of the Blue birds, Red wing blackbirds, Juncos and Dove gently fill the air. By mid-day, the 200 year old oak gives shade and perch to the Red tail hawk and young Bald Eagles, who keep watch over the open range. By sunset, the cattle graze to your west and shadows fall over the vineyards and open prairie. As the moon rises, one by one a chorus of frogs sings out; joined by a Great Horned Owl and coyotes in the distance.
Family owned, the Enney Ranch is an 850 acres cattle and grain ranch situated on a ridge over looking the "wine country" of Paso Robles. Sit back and enjoy the vast open space; the peace; the quiet serenity of the Salinas Valley back country. Hike the canyons and enjoy spring wildflowers or simply sit and watch the grain dance in the wind. Or, if you're looking for more cultured pursuits, wine tasting at one of the award winning Pleasant Valley Wine trail wineries is just minutes away. Just make sure you're back by sunset to enjoy the most spectacular views of the day.

The vibe at Lirio Cottage

My sister and I had the most incredible stay at the cottage on Enney's Ranch! Where to start... well to begin with, the 1.5 mile drive up a dirt road to the property on the hill was incredible, with views of vineyards and rolling hills. We were then greeted by the host, Kenneth. He was so warm and friendly right of the bat! When we inquired, he gave us a bit of history about the property and how he ended up there, which was all very interesting! Then he gave us a brief tour of the cottage and the amenities, which included an ice chest filled with a bucket of ice and two wine glasses- perfect for the bottle of Tobin James we picked up on our way to the property! We enjoyed our wine and snacks on the patio, a perfect place to unwind and enjoy the views. Shortly after, the two dogs, Bandit and Blue, came down to hang with us and were SO well behaved! They watched us prep our dinner and snacks and never once tried to sneak any for themselves. At sunrise, we took a walk up past the main house, to a hilltop with 360 degree views of rolling hills, Oak Trees and Vineyards. We met Kenneth, his two kids and his friend up there and had a lovely chat with them before they left us on our own to enjoy the sunset. We cooked dinner around the campfire, with firewood provided by Kenneth and enjoyed the vast amount of stars that are visible at night. In the morning we were greeted by an incredible sunrise, with beautiful light filtering in through the windows. A highlight of the cottage was the semi-outdoor tub. A not to miss feature for sure! The cabin was well stocked with towels, cooking utensils, coffee, french press and so on. I highly recommend booking a stay here. You will leave wanting to go back again for sure!
The tent cabin at Solana Farms makes for a great base camp to explore all that Paso Robles wine country has to offer. Set well back from the main road, it provides comfortable, pet-friendly accomodations for your family getaway. Host Kenney Enney and his two four-legged companions make sure you have all the necessities you need to make your stay at Solana Farms a memorable one. Just a short drive into town, and minutes away from buzzy Paso Robles, Solana Farms is the ideal location to disconnect and unwind. But with so much natural beauty around the farm, you may never want to leave. We hope to be back soon!!
Cannot say enough good things about the Lirio Cottage on Enney's Ranch. From the clarity of directions and details about the space, to the surprise of how awe inspiring it truly was, the experience was top notch. Somehow, Lirio Cottage and the surrounding ranch are even more beautiful than it is in the stellar pictures! Not even sure how that's possible, but it's true. Our pup had an awesome time playing with Kenney's friendly dogs on the ranch, as did we: one pooch was our tour guide on a peaceful hike through the rolling yellow hills of the ranch. As excited as we were to explore the wineries of Paso Robles, we were more stoked to come home to Enney Ranch - to sit outside on the deck, enjoy the coolest bathroom of all time, and look at the stars. Thanks to Kenney for being such a welcoming host and for making/sharing this place.
