The Hacienda commands a hilltop, affording those who stay here a fantastic view of our own valley and the rolling acres of Dancing Deer Farm that we're so happy to share.

The house is beautiful and remarkable. A large and lovely estate-style home, outfitted to accommodate your large group. You will enjoy the fully equipped gourmet kitchen with two refrigerators, a commercial quality gas stove, and all the cookware, small appliances, dinnerware, silverware, glasses & utensils you would expect.

There is a media room/library with a 50-inch large screen flat HD TV, VCR, DVD player, and Dish Network Satellite Receiver with 500 channels, as well as many bookshelves filled with options for your reading pleasure.

Or venture farther and enjoy beaches, wineries, Hearst Castle, Spanish missions, hot springs, restaurants and shopping - everything from charming, locally owned and run shops to outlet stores are easily reachable by car.

The property is owned by a non-profit organization and is located in a private valley near the ocean close to Cambria, Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo on California’s gorgeous central coast mid-way between Los Angeles and San Francisco. We are located in an area of wineries and estate homes, close to everything but with very serene privacy. That rare privacy combined with convenience to all amenities is one of the reasons we chose to establish Dancing Deer right here. It's so very peaceful and beautiful and just a wonderful place to connect, unwind and rebuild.

As rental space for your retreats, workshops, meetings & gatherings, Dancing Deer Farm provides the perfect environment for many types and sizes of gatherings and activities.

We aim to support family bonding and celebration. This is a place meant to foster community while supporting practices to help restore and enhance the earth’s own systems.

Car: Recommended

With the coast only a 30-minute drive away, you can easily visit the beach for surfing, paddleboarding, kayaking, sailing, windsurfing, and parasailing in Morro Bay, Cayucos or Cambria. And just north of that, visit the elephant seals and Hearst Castle in San Simeon!

If you are here during the summer months, the Mid State Fair in Paso Robles is always a favorite activity, and easy to get to at only 8 miles away! Head south 30 minutes into San Luis Obispo for more central coast fun, including hiking some of the Seven Sisters of San Luis Obispo - our famous peaks of volcanic remains!

We have hot springs just a few miles away, and on site healing practitioners offering a variety of healing modalities, so if you'd like to ensure your stay is relaxing and rejuvenating, we've got you covered!

And if you like good food and good wine - this is the destination for you! With nearly 200 wineries in the county (two are directly across the street from us!), and a farmer's market almost every day, your taste sensations will be pampered and nourished!

If lake activities are your thing, it is a short drive to several area lakes: Santa Margarita, Nacimiento and San Antonio. Enjoy fishing, camping and boating activities!

Take some time to appreciate our state's history with visits to some of the original California missions - Mission San Antonio de Padua, Mission San Miguel Arcangel, Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa and Mission La Purisima Concepcion are all within driving distance.

Come let us show why some have called this the Happiest Place in America!


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2007

About: This property is owned and operated by the Center for Reuniting Families, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. On November 15, 1994, the Center for Reuniting Families was incorporated as a non-profit educational organization with the following purpose: To establish and maintain programs providing both teen-oriented and adult assistance to educate and encourage choices that are positive for the individual, family, community and for the greater stewardship of the earth through experiential exercises and to develop a teaching institution disseminating educational material to the public. In addition to our core goals, at Dancing Deer Farm we provide a venue and shared resources to other non profit organizations who address the challenges of creating ecologically and economically vibrant and healthy families and communities. Through these collaborative efforts, CRF is a center for education, research, and demonstration to develop strategies for a sustainable future.

Why Paso Robles:
Dancing Deer Farm isn't just another place to stay. With the focus of our non profit work, visitors can quickly feel the healing, calming and supportive energy that infuses this property. We encourage everyone who walks this land to be healthy, happy and respectful, and when that is done, you can't help feeling all of those things within yourself! It is our intention to have all of our guests leave our property feeling better than when they came.
