Lovingly preserved and freshly restored, this rustic beauty sparkles! Architecture is reminiscent of Yosemite's Ahwahnee Hotel, with cathedral ceilings, stripped redwood beams, and 4 river rock fireplaces. This idyllic retreat was built in 1930 by Pebble Beach residents, Grace and Paul Veeder to relax and entertain guests.
Cherished by our 5 family generations as a private hideaway home, The Ranch House is now offered as an exclusive, executive family retreat that today's multiple generations can treasure as they enjoy precious time together.
Exquisite kitchen, 2 quaint bathrooms (pedestal tub/shower in the guest suite and a candlelit fireplace shower in the master suite) with custom furnishings throughout. Careful preservation and upgrades adorn this historic treasure.
Just 15 minutes from Carmel, and its coastal fog, The Ranch House at Garzas Creek soaks in Carmel Valley sunshine most of the year. Minutes away to golf, horseback riding, shopping, fine dining, & wine tasting.
Our 3 bedroom / 2 bath rustic Ranch House comfortably accommodates 8 - 10 people (2 queens and 2 bunk beds) with Sheraton Sweet Sleeper mattresses and luxury linens for the most discriminating travelers. The Ranch House offers the best of yesterday with the luxuries of today.
We invite you to come discover this exceptional retreat, in a secluded canyon on 50+ acres, (1/4 mile off a quiet residential road). Features include: custom kitchen with radiant-heat tiled floors, tiled counters, custom redwood cabinets, spacious great room with majestic river rock fireplace, original wide plank redwood floors, original 'twig furniture,' Native American and early Californian art, 8' pool table, massive outdoor stone fireplace on terrace, new private hot tub, seasonal creek, and plenty of land to hike on and explore with exclusive, private trail head access to Garland Regional Park.
Equestrians, bring your horses on vacation, and stable up to 3 horses steps away from The Ranch House in our covered shed row, with 12 x 24' stalls. Ideal for trail riders and show horses. Trail riders will enjoy private access to 4500 acres of rugged mountain terrain, mountain streams and hidden Redwood Canyon in Garland Park.
Horse show participants will have peace of mind, knowing your equine friend is under your watchful eye - away from the bustle of show grounds. You both will relax in comfort, quiet, and convenience. Show venues are nearby. The Carmel Valley Trail and Saddle Club is a hack away. Pebble Beach Stables are 25 minutes away. Monterey County Fairgrounds are 30 minutes away.

About the owner: Mom and Dad are our 3rd generation family partners. We are grateful to them for allowing us to use The Ranch House as a place where we can come and stay when we're in town, and rent to you the rest of the year! We think Great-Grands Paul and Grace, and Granny and GrandDad would be pleased, too! This is a family enterprise, and we feel truly blessed to share our heritage with you.
Why the Owner Chose Carmel Valley: Samuel F.B. Morse was our Great GrandDad's friend from Yale. He persuaded Paul and Grace to buy almost 800 acres in Carmel Valley, and a handful of lots in Pebble Beach in the late 1920's. They loved escaping the fog on the coast to visit the Carmel Valley sunshine. Nice choice!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Be properly warned. There is never enough time to enjoy your stay at The Ranch House. Time here is so slow and charming, you will almost feel you are in a dream. But no matter how many nights you stay, it is NEVER enough time, and the last day at The Ranch House will come too quickly. So plan to stay an extra day whenever possible!
