Property description

We offer accommodations for guests wanting a unique experience in the countryside within reach of civilization.

One that includes rest, relaxation and possibly exploration.

One that could include - horses - horsemanship and serious training or simple trail riding.

Bring your horses - let them enjoy a change. (The grass is usually green through June).

On the farm -
There is a cozy two bedroom, two bath rather rustic farm house decorated in an eclectic post modern way mixed with a certain country flair. A few nice pieces of mid century furniture. Interesting art work on display.

This is a working horse farm - expect what comes with that... We are set up to accommodate your horses (up to 4) and we are set up to train all levels of horsemanship from the beginners to Grand Prix showjumping... talk to us if you are interested in training, lessons, horsemanship clinics.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: This was a working farm for our family for the last 30 years... now it's an empty nest re figured for your enjoyment. We trained horses here and raised kids - still do.

Why the Owner Chose Half Moon Bay:
Why not experience what it's like to wake up to the sound of song birds... to the nicker of a horse and the crow of a rooster...? Get up do chores or not - sleep in and sit in the hot tub. Bring your horses - where else can you do all this and get to the airport in an hour and the beach in 5 minutes...

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Family friendly Horse friendly Great local surf spots Best beaches Great restaurant
