Storage Containers to an Inn in California!

Many years ago we visited Cass Winery, enjoyed lunch and a wine tasting … all delicious! The Paso Robles area in California has doubled in number of wineries since we first visited the area about 20 years ago. Yet now we were back to see and stay in their Geneseo Inn.

While eating lunch at the winery many years ago, we had seen plans/sketches for an inn to be constructed of storage containers. Really? I knew I wanted to return when that project was complete! So, recently we stayed overnight in the Ebony & Ivory room and parked our car right below our “storage container” which allowed for easy access to move luggage into our room and keep the car out of the sun. I did look closely to see how our room had been constructed with the storage container; absolutely fantastic use of the container!

When you stay at the Geneseo Inn you are a wine club member for the day, so our wine tasting at lunch had been complimentary along with “happy hour” as we settled in our room, plus any wines we chose to buy were discounted!

The room was spacious and very comfortable with everything and more you would want here: refrigerator, bathrobes, eye masks as there is plenty of light coming in through skylights in the morning and a nice deck area. Our breakfast was included in our stay so we ate it on the back deck. Absolutely delicious breakfast!

Cass Winery/Geneseo Inn staff look forward to you staying on property with their many activity offerings: archery, eBikes to ride on property, corn hole game, hammocks to relax in, axe throwing, horseback trail ride, walking through the vineyard, sitting fireside, happy hour and food at the cafe. We found it very easy to relax and enjoy the quiet and I really hope they add a spa soon too!

It is a pricey place to stay overnight, but the next time I can it will be with plans to star gaze! They do advertise some special nights to do that too! Want to celebrate a special occasion? This is the place to visit and stay a night or two! Go and enjoy!
