Property description

The Guesthouse at the Flying Caballos Ranch sits next to our century old farmhouse and is located in the rolling hills of Edna Valley, minutes from wine country and downtown San Luis Obispo.

Built in 1952, this 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom guesthouse can accommodate up to 6 guests (2 doubles, 1 sofa sleeper). Each room in the home is unique and has been decorated with the utmost attention to detail. The guesthouse features a full kitchen, dining room with seating for 4 guests, and a cozy living room with sofa sleeper. The guesthouse has a private entrance, large fenced front and back yard with BBQ and patio furniture, and a single car garage. Come enjoy the beautiful views of Edna Valley!

The Flying Caballos Ranch offers several other historic homes that are available to rent. Please be sure to check out our other properties on the ranch (Farmhouse #174490, Cozy Cottage #228510)

The Flying Caballos Ranch was originally owned by the Alfred Madonna family in the early 1900's and encompassed several hundred acres, operating as a dairy farm. The Madonna's grew their own vegetables, vineyard, and orchard. They hunted deer and fished for salmon, all on the ranch. Currently, the ranch consists of approximately 100 acres with horse and cattle grazing, a year-round creek, and unobstructed views of Edna Valley and Islay Hill.
