Templeton house description

Shanagolden Ranch Retreat and Vacation Rental

Shanagolden is named after a little town in Limerick, Ireland that is said to be a place of great peace and tranquility.

Our lovely, rustic two story home is situated off Highway 46 West, in the heart of California's Central Coast Wine Country, on 100 private acres of oak tree covered canyons. Like its namesake, it is a magical place of serenity and peace. The spacious front courtyard and sun deck provides a spectacular view of soaring hawks above the surrounding hills and canyon.

The house is a charming combination of antique and modern furnishings and sleeps eight comfortably with two queen size beds, four twin beds and an additional queen size futon in the upstairs sitting room. All linens and blankets are provided. Our kitchen is equipped with plates, utensils and cookware.

Our self-catering kitchen is equipped with plates, utensils and cookware. Eggs, bacon, bread and cereal are provided for you to cook and enjoy at your leisure.

The downstairs living room downstairs has a cozy wood stove and our upstairs sitting room has a record player and a nostalgic collection of old LP’s from Jazz to Rock and Roll, Folk and Classical. There is a DVD and Video player with a selection of old movies. There is no TV and no internet service.

We are twelve miles from the coastal beaches of Cambria, Cayucos and Morro Bay and just minutes away from many local wineries. Wooded walking trails along the creek offer quiet times for relaxation and meditation.


Summer (June - Sept.) $200/couple, $250 -$350/groups. Weekly = $1,500
Winter (Oct. - May) $150/couple, $200 - $300.Groups. Weekly = $1,000

A recent review:

By Winos (Los Angeles, CA)
'Kristin was very helpful and very accommodating to our large group. The house is very nice and in a very relaxing area off of the 46. It is very close to the wineries and we had no problem getting to them for tasting. Thanks for everything, I definitely recommend staying here!'

For information please call me at the number listed.
