Our stay at the Sundance Bed & Breakfast in Paso Robles, Calif., was as close to perfect as I have ever experienced. Innkeeper Alma Ayon is also an incredible cook, serving up a wonderful three-course breakfast in addition to a lovely afternoon reception hour with only good wine being served. No scrimping here. I got to check out all the rooms in this lovely four-room inn, and all were understatedly elegant. I can't wait to go back.
