The 650 acre ranch upon which skyhouse is located, is situated between the Pacific Ocean of Los Osos and San Luis Obispo, (a 30 min. drive from SLO and a 20 minute drive from Los Osos) in the Irish foothills at the very end of Clark Valley road. The ranch is a rugged, oak covered, hilly piece of land, with pockets (approximately 14 acres) of organic sub-tropical fruit orchards and fields (including feijoas, passion fruit, African horned melons, pepino melons, persimmons, Asian pears) and all organic unusual vegetable varieties including blue potatoes, tomatillos, blue and green corn, yacon and heirloom tomatoes. There are free roaming horses and Texas Longhorns and plenty of wildlife including: red-tail hawk, quail, owl, bobcat, coyote, raccoon, fox, wild boar, deer, the illusive mountain lion and the very occasional black bear.
While the biggest lure of Sky House is to relax in its serene surrounding with the awe-inspiring views, activities on the ranch include self- guided hikes along the 650 acre piece of land ranging from creek walks to hikes up to a manzanita lined ridge and self-guided tours of the organic farm with walks in the various orchards and fields. Please give a call during your stay to see if anyone has time to give a tour, or can manage a few visitors in the field during work hours, and possibly show you around elsewhere. (Tours are donation based, we recommend $5 per person)
Outside the ranch, activities in the central coast range from visits to the nearby beautiful state park of Montana de Oro (Los Osos), surfing in many a destination along the Pacific ocean (we can guide you as to where the surf in good and less trafficked), wine tasting amongst the rough 200 or so wineries of the area, elephant seal gazing in San Simeon, and tours of Hearst Castle, whalewatching off Morro Bay harbor, visits to the local farmers markets where we may be selling our own organic produce, site-seeing in the local beach towns of Los Osos, Morro Bay, and Cayucos and tours to San Luis Obispo with good dining in all of the above mentioned towns (we will gladly give recommendations).
