About Ron and Laura Komers
"Plateau Edge" was inspired by our son, Alexander. He has cerebral pralsy, is quadriplegic, and has intractable seizures. We needed a way to pay for his 24/7 nursing to sustain him in our retirement and after we are gone. Having Plateau Edge with our organic farm and being chefs, gives Alex a future and provides a beautiful place for our guests. We have had wonderful guests which has given our family such joy! My husband,Ron Komers retired from Riverside County as Assistant CEO, HR Director. I am Laura Loring Komers, a green architectural designer. We have combined our knowledge of people, eco-life, farm to table foods, design and architecture to create 'Plateau Edge'. The Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve creates such an amazing natural environment; Plateau Edge is on the Edge of the SRPER. We invite you to come to Plateau Edge, watch Hawks fly, stars shine, and get the fun, rest, friendship, and family time that you are seeking!
Ron and Laura Komers purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2008
Why Ron and Laura Komers chose Murrieta
This area is beautiful; the beach weather comes over the mountains, only 14 miles away as the crow flys; the weather provides seasons but is perfect for sports and recreation year round; and this area has the only natural plateau in Southern California (8300 acres) that is literally on the property's doorstep. This area is one of only 7 Areas in the world to have a Mediterean Climate. This climate can grow almost everything, avocados, wine grapes, vegetables,fruits, flowers. Our organic farm is on an adjacent acreage and we do grow everything!! This area is the best kept secret in California!!!!
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
The property's architecture has a lot of connectivity to the outdoors with over 2,000 square feet of decks and 2,500 square feet of patios with glass doors that open up to those areas. There is the "Barn pavilion" which is 32'x 52' and features dining for up to 50 with Barn wood tables and wicker chairs, a seating area with sleeper sofas and a sofa for movies, a partial kitchen, a sound and communications system, and a gigantic smoker right outside the door. Plateau Edge also has a playground with volleyball, badminton, and horseshoes, and a pergola with a view. Plateau edge is Placed on 5 acres of a tree-filled property (manzanita, oak, and pine)with amazing views in a rural setting for gatherings, hiking, biking and the Plateau--and wine country. Waking up to the magnificent sunrises and taking walks is everyone's favorite but evening stars out on a deck is fabulous too! This property truly combines the conniving with nature of camping and the luxury of a beautiful home. There are hawks, barn owls, and many birds unique to the plateau that you will hear and see during your stay. And with our organic farm on an adjacent acreage, there is every seasonal fruit and vegetable available for our guests use.

Above and Beyond
Our extended family rented the beautiful home, chateau, and pavilion at Plateau Edge. There were comfortable sleeping spaces for all of us, several living spaces for relaxing, reading, or chatting together, and a large kitchen and dining area where some of our favorite family times took place.
The kitchen was stocked with dishes, appliances, cookware, and utensils and we prepared 4 days worth of meals (for 18-24 people) with ease.
The property and surrounding area were beautiful - and we enjoyed taking walks, watching the sun rise and set, relaxing in the jacuzzi, and playing ping-pong with the kids.
My favorite place on the property -however- was the barn pavilion. It was set up for our family Christmas and Christmas Eve celebrations ... with two beautifully decorated farm-style tables that would have accommodated far more than the 24 guests and family members we had for Christmas dinner. We used the 42 cup percolator for our coffee each day, and industrial sized refrigerator in this area stored the ingredients for our meal prep.
A sitting area was also in this space, as well as a large screen tv and plenty of space for everyone to be together (siblings and cousins even had a dance off.
I hope to return to Plateau Edge ... and would definitely recommend it (and it’s owner/property manager) to anyone wanting to enjoy the beauty of California!!
The house was perfect for our family reunion with 19 of us!
The house has a beautiful setting and plenty of space both inside and out so that we could spend time together and also have alone space when needed. We enjoyed having the big table so that we could all sit down for Christmas dinner together. There was plenty of space for a poker game, board game, sitting and visiting, and watching a movie at the same time not being in the same room. Laura and Ron, the owners took great care of us and made sure we had everything we needed. We had a week together that we will never forget. The house and barn together worked out perfectly for us!
Perfect family reunion rental
We rented Plateau Edge and the sister property next door for a family reunion with 10 "adults" (50-85 yr. olds) and 10 "kids (18-16 yr. olds) the combination of the two houses was perfect! Great hot tub at each house (beautiful pool that can be heated for your stay), well stocked kitchens. Plenty of dishes, linens etc.. large gathering spaces plus smaller nooks and crannies to "get away". Laura, the owner, and Cari, her assistant, are flexible, generous and communicative. The food we had catered was delicious (especially all the baked goods!!). Highly recommend for your next gathering.
Home away from home!
Our experience at Plateau Edge was surreal. The place is simply amazing! The house has all the amenities & facilities that you can wish for during your vacation stay. The views from the house are to die for. The hosts and their team were extremely pleasant and helpful throughout our stay. It felt like having a home away from home. It a perfect place for family reunions and getaways. I totally recommend Plateau Edge for a once in a lifetime experience.
Amazing Family Reunion Weekend!
We had an amazing time at Plateau Edge last month! We hosted my dad's 90th birthday and family reunion. Laura, Ron, and their team were amazing! They helped us all along the way through planning the stay and the meals for the weekend, preparing all the amazing food, serving the birthday dinner, and playing host to our guests. They were so warm and welcoming! Their were 28 of us but the house accommodated us well. It was comfortable and the views were spectacular! We can't wait to plan our next event at Plateau Edge!
Perfect Wedding Weekend Stay
We rented Plateau Edge for our accommodations for our Murrieta Weekend Wedding. We invited family and friends to stay with us in the house and received rave reviews from everyone! Laura is a wonderful host, even offering our guests wine tastings by the pool. The cookies and fresh baked goods Laura prepared for us were unbelievable. The "barn" area was the perfect setting for our casual rehearsal dinner and was decorated beautifully. My Husband and I even spent a night under the stars on one of the balcony beds. It was overall lovely. Highly recommended.
A mile down the road we have a communal pool, 2 tennis courts, basketball, game room. The game room has the following: pool table, ping pong, pop a shot basketball, and pinball machines.
Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve with horseback riding and mountain biking, adjacent to Lake Elsinore with water skiing. Temecula Wine Country a short drive away.
