A beautiful setting with plenty of room for everyone.
This house was truly amazing. It was remote and it was total bliss. We loved being able to all be together for our 20 person family reunion. My only feedback is that it would be nice if the mattresses were updated. I would love to go back someday.
Can't wait to be back
We had such an amazing weekend here, only wish the stay was longer. Such a special place. The house had everything we needed and Ann was super responsive whenever we had a question. Really hope we'll get to come back in the summer to enjoy the pool as well.
Very nice, family style residence with a country ambiance!
One of the cleanest and homiest environments we have stayed. Near Pinnacles National Park that is a must see location we thoroughly enjoyed. Beautiful grounds even in winter.
Magical oak tree oasis
We had a cousin's getaway at Ann's wonderful home. The pictures really don't do the property justice: its sprawling grassy lawns, huge oak trees, big pool, beautiful gardens. Not to mention the well-appointed bedrooms and absolutely breathtaking views of the valley from nearly every spot on the property. We loved her place and can't wait to return!
A beautiful spot to enjoy with friends
Mesa Del Sol is magical. You could spend a whole weekend just relaxing on the property—swinging by the grassy lawn, taking a dip in the chilly pool and hot tub, feeding chickens, walking around the little pond, cooking and eating in one of the many outdoor kitchen spots, soaking up the views over the river and canyon... We did this, and also went up the road to Arroyo Seco for some river exploration and hikes. The sleeping space was great for our crew of 6 families. And the house is full of love—which you can see in the small touches of how each room is appointed. It's a special place!
Our Wedding Site
If you are looking for a memorable destination full of beauty and fun, this is the spot. My husband and I were lucky enough to be married here a couple of weeks ago. We had about 20 of our closest family and friends up for the weekend to stay, and about 40 more guest came to join for the event. There was ample space and plenty of beauty to look at, even in the winter. The river was rushing, the trees changing, and ripened pomegranates for the picking! The house has everything you need-heat, space, storage, tools, and all of the comforts. Ann, the host, is extremely accommodating and thinks of everything! She was available to us but we didn't even need to ask for help-she set us up perfectly. I can't imagine a better place to be married or spend the weekend with loved ones. We will be returning!
5 miles up Arroyo Seco Rd. is the Arroyo Seco Recreation Area with off road hiking and biking and lots of water fun. Wine Tasting opportunities near by abound (along with private wine tasting and vineyard tours at Mesa Del Sol).
