              Enjoying the view at the Cottontail Creek Ranch 04/24/2009

              VRBO Bear stayed here:


              When my bear family and I arrived at the Cottontail Creek Ranch, we instantly felt at home!

              This luxury ranch retreat is nestled among some of California’s most breathtaking rolling hills. The location beckons you to enjoy the outdoors and everything the Central Coast has to offer. Whether you like to hike, fish, horseback ride, surf, or just simply hang out and enjoy some of the most awe inspiring views this home has to offer, this is the place for you!

              Our gracious hosts, Roger and Susan, made our arrival special in so many ways. From the beautiful fresh cut flowers in every bedroom to the delicious fresh fruit picked right from the ranch orchards to the awesome homemade cookies, no detail was overlooked. They took us on a tour of their 850 acre working ranch and we marveled at the incredible view overlooking the Estero Bay. The fresh air carried the fabulous scent of their orange orchards and flowers blossoming throughout the property. Plus, we were free to eat anything that was ripe and ready for picking on the grounds. We enjoyed lemons, oranges, avocados and fresh herbs. It was simply amazing! The fabulous surroundings, wide open spaces and views truly recharged our spirits.

              The home itself rivaled the ranch’s outside surroundings. From the historical Monterey pine floors to the custom woodwork, this home really showcased the owners’ personality and artistic flair. Susan’s whimsical artwork and Roger’s intricate woodwork throughout the home exuded warmth. They truly put their hearts and hands into making sure that we felt right at home.

              Cottontail Creek Ranch featured 5 luxurious bedrooms, each with their own personal baths. Everyone had their own personal space to retreat to and relax. The home’s floor plan was perfect for togetherness and included great family gathering spots like a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, spacious dining room as well as the large living room with its massive rock fireplace. Every room had an incredible view to enjoy. We spent evenings around the great fire pit or soaking in the steaming spa reminiscing about the day’s adventures. It was the perfect home for a reunion or celebration!

              If you must venture away from this private paradise, Cottontail Creek Ranch is in close proximity to the vineyards of Paso Robles, fabulous seafood in Morro Bay, and the quaint coastal town of Cayucos. It’s also a convenient home base to launch an excursion up the coast to visit Hearst Castle or explore the craggy coast of Big Sur. We have not stopped talking about our visit to the California Central Coast and the Cottontail Creek Ranch.

              Thanks Roger and Susan for a great stay!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1999

              About the owner: Sons Kristopher and Michael with Susan and Roger sitting on the future floor of their Cottontail Creek Ranch house vacation rental. It is like walking on liquid carmel corn! The tree was planted in front of our home place in 1911 by Mary Magetti and was 90 feet tall when it finally had to come down. Very sad but also we are reminded of all the shade it gave us over the years. Now it is show cased in our Cottontail Creek Ranch Home as flooring, bar top and moulding. Although Roger has passed his love for this special place can be felt everywhere; From rock work, the pool and the orchards. My sons, staff and I carry on the ranch life style and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

              Why the Owner Chose Cayucos:
              How did we get started in the Vacation Rental business? In 1999 our family had been living on Cottontail Creek Road on the Magetti Ranch for 20 years when the adjoining property came on the market. We wanted to expand agriculturally which we immediately did by adding more avocados, more cattle and oranges to the ranch. That left the question, what do we do with this extraordinary Cottontail Creek Ranch home built in 1978? Our goal is sustainability and the vacation rental does that as well as fulfills the home's destiny by entertaining tourists from around the world. The house truly combines luxury and homeyness while the views beckon you outdoors. We feel that Cottontail Creek Ranch is the perfect location for sharing this part of old California with others. The byproduct of this has been meeting wonderful people.

              The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
              'So much to Do or NOT, Close to everything the Central Coast has to offer' is what I tell potential guests. If you choose to venture out and leave the ranch the first wine tasting room is 15 minutes away and the beach is 12 minutes the opposite direction. The climate is moderate with a marine influence without a lot of fog and the extreme heat of inland, ' JUST RIGHT'! Staying at the ranch can be restful and quiet or full of activity, your choice. The location of our home makes it easy for our guests to enjoy the great outdoors without leaving the house, the patios and porches. You can also fill your days with hiking, walking and biking the property then take off for some wine tasting and beach activities or drive to Hearst Castle for a tour and the Big Sur Coast. We share any fruit and vegetables that are ready for harvest. We normally have oranges, lemons and limes all year long. Seasonally we have avocados, herbs and artichokes from the edible landscaping. It is great to live off the land.
