About Clay, Fredericka, and Elizabeth Thompson
We are the Thompson family: Clay and Fredericka and (daughter) Elizabeth. We are the owners of Claiborne & Churchill Winery, founded in 1983 and located in the heart of the Edna Valley, just outside the charming town of San Luis Obispo, California. We have remodeled the original farmhouse on the property so that one-half is now a vacation rental.
Clay, Fredericka, and Elizabeth Thompson purchased this Cottage in 1990
Why Clay, Fredericka, and Elizabeth Thompson chose San Luis Obispo
We fell in love with this area and its wine culture while traveling up the California coast on a business trip, away from our hometown of Ann Arbor, Michigan. Not long after, we left our jobs in Michigan, moved to San Luis Obispo, and began working in the local wine industry, beginning our own small wine production in 1983. In 1990 we were able to purchase our present property, and in 1995 we built a small winery and tasting room using eco-friendly "straw-bale" construction methods.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our guest cottage is an ideal place to relax, wind down, and "wine-down," as we say. It also makes a perfect base from which to explore this beautiful area. A dozen or more wine tasting rooms are within a fifteen minute drive, and the ocean is only five miles away, with sunning, surfing, and beach-combing opportunities. The charming towns of San Luis Obispo and Arroyo Grande are each within a ten-minute drive, each with its own shopping and cultural amenities. The local restaurant scene offers a variety of quality experiences, from casual to fine dining. Outdoor adventures such as biking the backroads or hiking the local trails are readily available.

A perfect place for a wine weekend!
Our stay could not have been better! The nicest people! A beautiful house!! A tasty dry Riesling!!! I am looking forward to staying there again soon.
We were in SLO for a long weekend for a wedding. This rental was the perfect spot for the weekend and the location right next to the winery could not have been more perfect. We enjoyed some great tastings at the tasting room. Was about 10-15 minutes from downtown SLO which was perfect as it was still pretty close but we felt a little secluded and away from everything. Would recommend this rental to anybody. The hosts were fantastic and very attentive as well.
Would stay there again. Very happy about our stay. Thank you.
Guest Cottage at Claiborne & Churchill Winery, Edna Valley
This very clean and cute cottage is a perfect place to place yourself
fora family of four or one to two couples. Weather your in the San Luis Obispo area for wine tasting or just need a two day to longer stay for any reason this is the perfect place for your stay. The room rate is very reasonable and the hospitality and friendliness Elizabeth and her staff exemplify is terrific. I highly recommend a stay at the
Claiborne & Churchill Winery Cottage. The winery and tasting facility and well manicured grounds are right next door for your convenience if you want to walk from the very private yard you have at the cottage..
The house is clean, beautifully located, comfortable, and all around amazing! Thank you so much!
SLO day getaway
We had a great stay at the winery guest cottage while our daughter attended SLO day orientation at Cal Poly! The cottage was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed including a wonderful welcome basket with wine! The setting is just beautiful and we had fun tasting the wines next door. It was the perfect spot for our stay! Thank you Elizabeth!
