When the guests arrive at the Temecula Ranch House B&B, co-owners Tanya Giansante or Kristen Lacombe, take them on a tour of the property.
With just under 5,000 square feet, there are pathways around the house and many hidden spots to sit and talk. The large front porch offers an old-fashioned early Americana look.
They have gardens, an Olympic pool and spa in the back. The pool-side bar is perfect for meeting the other guests and for parties. Tanya and Kristen use their backyard for weddings and get-togethers for up to 50 people.
There is a taco bar and grill if guests want to do-it-themselves instead of going to a restaurant.
Encircled by trees and enclosed with leaves and branches, the hidden Zen garden provides a private place for meditation.
After a day of wine tasting, this beautiful setting seems to call the guests back to relax and experience nature. We also arrange massages at the pool or in your room.
Tina feels, “We are hidden in the middle of the country, away from all of the craziness of the city and in the backyard of the wineries.”
Our guests may wish to ride a hot air balloon We work with the company and they land up here near us on top of the mountain. Especially on Saturdays and Sundays you can see from 10 to 20 balloons across the sky.
Most visitors want to take the wine tasting tours but there is another side of Temecula to experience. You should try some of our unique restaurants around Temecula with all styles of cuisine.
La Cocina de Reyes Mexican Restaurant’s interior looks like a traditional adobe building.
When you enter the Vail Ranch Steakhouse, visitors immediately see the meat in the dry aging room. The tender cuts are as great as some of the Las Vegas steakhouses.
Walk around the authentic Old Town, a traditional western town that looks like a movie set. Old Town has restaurants, shops and all types of businesses.
The Temecula Ranch House B&B is located in Temecula, California’s Wine Country. For information, call (714)-91`3-3383.
