Monterey farmhouse description

6 People MAX PLEASE! No Exceptions!

THIS IS NOT A PARTY HOUSE OR A PLACE FOR LARGE PARTIES.
Children over 10 are preferred at the ranch.

The Red Feather Ranch is where you'll find our old farm house. She sets upon a hill, is surrounded by mature trees and centrally located with immediate easy access to Highway 101 and 156, and only moments to the beach.

The ranch is secure, fenced and gated.

Bring your horses too! We've got 2 pipe corals and covered stalls with runs available for your horses on the property.Well mannered dogs welcome with owners approval.

Very clean and comfortable, well appointed kitchen, all that you need for a superb vacation. Enjoy listening to the hummingbirds while taking in the Fremont Peak views from your private back porch. Pick fresh veggies and fruit from your own garden box, when in season.

Relax around the outside fire pit or inside near 'Old Faithful', a very competent wood burning stove (the farm houses main, but reliable source of heat). Also an EdenPure heater is available for your use.

The property houses a few really nice and cool chickens. All colors and flavors of hens and a couple of roosters.

There is also a dog, a cat and one horse that live here.

Ride your horse, mountain bike or jog from the property to spectacular Manzanita park where there is 100's of acres to explore. It's heavenly! The park sports magnificent ocean and valley views. A baseball diamond is also present on the grounds.

Thank you for finding us on VRBO!

                      About the owner: To own property in the Monterey Bay has been a long time dream for us both. Don't ever give up on those dreams, they will come true. Ours did!

                      Why the Owner Chose Monterey:
                      Location, location, location and the views are incredible. We absolutely love this area of the fabulous Monterey Bay. Did I mention the location? This is Paradise!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                      The Red Feather Ranch has great views of the surrounding mountains and peaks of the lovely Monterey Bay and San Benito counties. The sunrise and sunsets are some of the most beautiful we've seen. The peace and quiet of the property is just amazing. There is public transporttion just minutes from the ranch with easy access. Did I mention the views?
