About Lolly and Lindley

Architecture, Anthropology, the Sea, and History; we love to travel following these themes and especially enjoy the Santa Cruz Mountains. Our family enjoys the central coast region and has for more than a century. You are invited to view our album on the linked YouTube slide show and then let us help you find the hidden paths around Santa Cruz and the San Lorenzo Valley.

Lolly and Lindley purchased this house in 1978

Why Lolly and Lindley chose Ben Lomond

The Oak Tree is AMAZING, as are the birds who come to rest. We chose this property 40 years ago, partly because of the open flat sunny meadow surrounded by forests with distant mountain views and partly because the geology is as varied in each direction as the potential activities nearby.

If you are looking for crowds, noise, fog, traffic -- go someplace else. We are tranquility, blue skies, white fluffy clouds, bird song, deer, wild turkeys and brilliant starlight. Once in the house you may not want to leave but the redwood forests, beaches, and cities of San Francisco, Monterey, Carmel, San Jose, Palo Alto and Sunnyvale are all with in reach.

Ben Lomond Bungalow, in Santa Cruz Mountains is place that defines California Central Coast living at its best. The line between indoor and outdoor living spaces dissolve. Now you have the chance to enjoy our hard work great neighbors, trails, and access to every thing on the central coast including the zip line at Mt Herman as you move from platform to platform through the tree top canopy.

On the mountain, two miles from our country retreat is a venue for quality music at the Don Quixote's Interntational Music Hall.

Fishing license and small craft rentals are available at Loch Lomond or the Santa Cruz Wharf as well as other places around the county we can help you find.

What makes this house unique

Behind the property you will find Quail Hollow Ranch, an equestrian park first developed by the founders of Sunset Magazine as their weekend home. The trails around the ranch lead you past a pond, year round streams and a host of wildlife. The sunset trail above our home leads to a panorama vista overlooking the coast and nearby valleys.

The rich and varied history of the region is recognized as one of the most significant biological treasures in the state of California, the Zyante Sandhills Zone support a unique community of plants and animals found only in Santa Cruz County.

We are close to many state parks and the redwood trees beaches and fun and creative shopping areas. We look forward to sharing our list of fun places to play and eat; however, if you are not able to escape leave work, satellite conference rooms and office space is available within two miles.

Guestbook comments from the owner

2010-07-17 "(5 out of 5) This is a great home in a wonderful area. Everything you need is there including a fully equipped kitchen! Big yard with beautiful views. There are tons of outdoor activities to do, including a one of a kind zip line through the Redwoods at Mt. Hermon. Our family definitely enjoyed our 3 month stay in Ben Lomond."

Great short weekend - Taking a break from Silicon Valley

Owner's Response: Yes Blake, the sentence that runs through my head is so close but a different world. I used to commute to San Jose and loved getting home. Now I commute from further away, but still love getting home. We just harvested an arm full of tomatoes, and lots and lots of onions. The veggie garden is now replanted with new fall crops. It is not to early to book time for summer 2018.

Santa Barbara California

Lovely location & setting.

  • 4 of 5

Owners very attentive and always responded quickly . Handy person/ property manager was very helpful and prompt with dealing with our concerns. Comfortable for two couples but very little space for storage of personal items and the third space for sleeping one person was not at all comfortable. Kitchen excellently equipped. Hot tub was great.

A little disappointed in cost for value but all in all a good time was had by all. We do recommend this home for overall comfort, setting and location.

Also do not like VRBO’s communication/web site/manner of billing. It was very confusing.

Owner's Response: Alice, thank you so much for your thoughtful review. We are glad you enjoyed the house, the yard, and the area. We agree the third bedroom (den) with a fold out over size chair is not a comfortable room. The extra pad to put on top of the slip mattress helps, but it is still cramped to spend much time in. We hope this problem is solved next week by removing one of the alcove walls that will permit a much better sleeping accommodation. At 1,100 sq. feet extra storage is always going to be a premium under the bed, in the garage, or out in the barn. Although the VRBO can be confusing at a glance which is problematic for even long term users because the web site has transformed several times it is comprehensive. Once you spend some time looking at the site it is easy to know the square footage, the configuration of bedrooms, types of beds, house manual, instructions for the hot tub, and heating systems, directions, and directory of local businesses. That said we are delighted to have the opportunity to speak or text with our guest to provide assistance as needed. We hope you had a chance to get to know this fabulous area.

Compact with lovely gardens

  • 5 of 5

Close to Felton, Ben Lomond and a short drive to Santa Cruz. Very relaxing, with a very nice outdoor area and BBQ. 2 decent sized bedrooms and a couple of other sleeping options for extra quests, clean, and well equipped. We enjoyed our stay very much.

The house is very comfortable and has everything you could need. Came from Sacramento where it has been unbearably hot. Wouldn't you know it the first day here was unusually hot (at least for Santa Cruz). Second day cooled down some then it was nice and cool like normal. Fortunately the air conditioner in the front of the house cools that part down then by bedtime you open up the doors and use the fan. It is actually pretty close to a lot of stuff. The kids enjoyed zip lining. We went to the boardwalk. Had lunch one day in Capitola and hung out at Davenport Landing Beach one afternoon. Every evening enjoyed the hot tub.

Quick outings might include the nineteenth century Mt. Hermon conference grounds where you may choose to whiz down a zip line (known as the longest on the central coast) through the tree canopy. Or the picturesque Village of Ben Lomond where the smell of chicken barbecue always wafts from the parking lot of the Ben Lomond Market. Rent a fishing boat or Canoe at Loch Lomond (3 miles up the hill) or fish off the wharf or on a deep sea fishing charter. Did you know that there are very deep canyons off the central Ca coast.

Follow paths to incredible vistas along coastal edges and high mountain trails that overlook the Monterey Bay and Pacific Ocean. Behind our backyard is the Sunset Trail head leading from Quail Hollow Ranch Park. This 300-acre historic horse ranch is currently a nature preserve and home to a few horses, but offers 15 hiking and equestrian trails.

The HIstoric Mountain Village of Boulder Creek, home to one the worlds greatest Redwood Forests, is where you will find the streets found in a number of Hollywood movies because its historic charm is evident as the quaint shops of artisans, antique dealers, are mixed with the local fabric of the mountain community.

Roaring Camp Railroad is where you will find a variety of well loved adventures. Travel back in time aboard a nineteenth century steam train ride from the Redwood Forest to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, Municipal Wharf, and Main Beach (AKA Steamers Lane); additional seasonal events are offered throughout the year.

A memorable stroll down Pacific Ave or West Cliff Drive might include a Monarch Habitat, Surfers Museum, or tour the UCSC Marine Lab with child docents.

Hiking through Big Basin Redwood Forest is a lifetime memory or visit the Highland Park or the 3 remaining Historic Logging Villages. Henry Cowell Redwood Forest and State Park is home to a centuries old Redwood Grove that features a self-guided nature path. The park has a picnic area above the San Lorenzo River. Anglers fish for steelhead and salmon during the winter (catch and release).

State Parks surround us, Big Basin State Park, Henry Cowell Redwood State Park, Historic Wilder Ranch State Park, Quail Hollow Ranch Park, UCSC are an easy drive. Go a little further to find Sea Cliff Beach State Park, Elk Horn Slough in the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, Point Lobos Nature Preserve, and even Big Sur. North along Highway One you will discover elephant seals at Ano Nuevo, Davenport, the home of Odwala Juice and Bonny Doon Winery, lighthouses, and many remote isolated beaches, wind surfing, and other unique enterprises

Shop till you drop on the Pacific Avenue Mall and enjoy the street musicians. Folks say the nearby Pasatiempo Golf course, a Alister McKenzie design, is as good as you can get for public (semipro) golf. Golf-week rates it #3 in California. The Seymour Marine Discovery Center is part of the Joseph M. Long Marine Laboratory, a research and education facility of the University of California, Santa Cruz just 10 miles away or drive a little further to the Monterey Bay Aquarium,

Visit Santa Cruz's 300 historic homes dating from the 1850s through 1930s and its 247 structures of architectural significance that dates from 1930 through 1950.

World class jazz every Monday at the Kuumbwa Jazz Center in Santa Cruz is open to all ages. Santa Cruz Farmer's Market is every Wednesday located one block off of Pacific Avenue.

We are an easy drive to almost every where on the central California Coast and the San Francisco Bay Area. Take day trips to explore the California Coast from Big Sur and Carmel-by-the-Sea, to the Golden Gate Bridge and streetcars of San Francisco.

Colleges and university visits are a natural from Ben Lomond Bungalow. UCSC is 12 miles, CSU San Jose and CSU Monterey Bay are about 30 miles, Stanford University is about 40 miles and UC Berkeley is 70 miles.

Visit up to forty-five different Santa Cruz wineries. Winemaker Wednesdays at Shadowbrook Restaurant features 2 to 4 wines from local Wineries in a spectacular river front setting.

Barrel Tasting & Wine Dinner is held at Bonny Doon Vineyard every Thursday where you can glimpse into the winery & cellar. Barrel tasting is followed by a hosted three-course, prix fixe family style dinner paired with wines of Bonny Doon Vineyard.

Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, recognized as the best seaside park in the world, offers free concerts on the beach Friday nights. Don Quixote’s International Hall of Music, a tiny mountain venue offers fabulous intimate experience.

Only 30 miles from the hustle of San Jose and Silicon Valley we are in a world apart. Magic is here on Ben Lomond Mountain located between San Fransisco and Carmel nestled in the hills above Monterey Bay.
