Large House, 3 Bedrooms, outdoor spa Convertible bed(s) 2.5 Baths Sleeps 6-12

Come enjoy our secluded mountain estate, complete with luxurious amenities and fantastic views. Located within Monterey Peninsula's prized sunbelt area. It may be foggy in Monterey, Carmel or Pebble Beach, but just few minutes away at your Mountain guesthouse, you'll often have sunny days.

We are just down the road from The River Road Wine Trail -- a country drive that winds through 12 exceptional vineyards and wine-tasting rooms. A very special afternoon! Hikers and Mountain Bikers will love the Fort Ord National Monument, which runs behind our property. A trail head is just down the road from us!

The Mountain House is a 2800 sq. ft. multilevel mid century ranch set on three fenced acres, all professionally landscaped with big back and front yards, vegetable gardens and many Oak and Eucalyptus trees. Very private and gated with parking for over 10 cars. Large multi-level decks all around the house. 3 Bedrooms (our property will sleep 10-12 adults comfortably). 2.5 Baths.

About front desk at Hotel 1110

This property is professionally managed by a local small hotel :'Hotel 1110' in Monterey. Please don't hesitate to contact the hotel front desk for further inquiries and any other questions about our vacation home. 831-655-0515.

Why front desk at Hotel 1110 chose Central Coast

If you are a large party and appreciates seclusion with panoramic mountain and canyon views with large outdoors facilities for lounging and cooking, this place will please.

Most people know that the Monterey Bay area is famous for its natural beauty and popular events, but locals know it also has very quirky micro climates. Sunbelt properties close to the ocean, like Corral de Tierra and Carmel Valley, are prized and at a premium. Summer days can be cold and foggy in Pebble Beach or Carmel, and just a few minutes drive inland finds a warm, sunny day. A gloomy day in Salinas turns into a pocket of sunshine a few miles west where we are. The Corral de Tierra area, also known as John Steinbeck's Pastures of Heaven, is a sunny jewel.

Unlike any other vacation rentals our mountain estate has everything and is very close to all the Monterey Bay area has to offer.

What makes this house unique

Gated secured lot accommodate up to 10 cars, outdoors grilling experience, centrally located to all activities in Monterrey Peninsula... Jazz festivals..car racing... Pebble Beach Concourse...Aquarium...Golf events

Great house, beautiful scenery!

  • 4 of 5

The Mountain House is really great for large groups. It has lots of space, especially the Master Bedroom and bathroom attached inside. The pictures do not really do justice, it's a household you have to see in person to actually admire what beauty and potential it has. The BBQ area and Deck was probably the most popular areas for our guests to lounge and mingle, other than that every single room had lots of room to lounge. We picked this placed because we decided to do our Engagement Photoshoot here as well, and I must say, if you don't plan to be indoors, I suggest you lounge outdoors and admire the scenery this house is surrounded by. There was one incident where 2 really big stray dogs came to our door, but luckily they had collars on and we called the owners who were only down the street from us to warn them that they got loose. So if you see those dogs, they're friendly & please report them back to their owners! All in all, if you have a large group, there's lots of bedding sheets, pillows, air beds and cots for your guests. As for cooking, there's lots of utensils and cookware, and tons of space to prepare for your feast. We will be booking again!

Yikes!!!

  • 1 of 5

The house was not the problem... but the uninvited four legged rodent or rodents were. Its presence was unbeknownst to us on the first day eventhough there was evidence. It wasn't until the second morning with the holes in the plastic bags chewed through and the slices of bread and bagels eaten that we noticed the droppings among the food on the kitchen counter. I understand that field mice can make its way in from the outdoors through no fault of his but when I requested some correspondence re the "problem" via phone or email, the owner was unresponsive for two days. When he finally did respond, he said "STOP HARASSING ME!" I had merely wanted his response to the information and how we can renegotiate the contract if possible because we had chosen to leave one day earlier due to this uninvited guests as one of the reasons. The owner went ballistic ... clearly not a person who is in any way concerned about his guests. Thankfully... our family enjoyed being together in the house. The worst part of our experience was not even the mice, but the negative and disrespectful attitude of the owner throughout. Because of him... I would not recommend the house.

Great place for a large gathering!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful views. Great layout for large gatherings. Property owners were responsive and very pleasant! Only reason we didn't give it a 5th star is the because the kitchen could use a little upgrade. Thanks for a wonderful stay to celebrate a 50th birthday!

Nice Place, Difficult Owner

  • 2 of 5

My friends and I actually enjoyed this home during our stay. The kitchen pots and pans could be updated to accommodate 12 people if you are cooking. You can expect the ovens and stove top to take a while to heat up but luckily the outside fire pit provides another heat source for cooking. I just had to bring my own fry pan large enough to accommodate for my guests as the 8" one provided was pretty scratched up. Costco sells great pans for just a few bucks so those can easily be replaced. The surrounding area is also nice, woods and nice views off the balcony. With the woods also came some wild life. Saw a few Hawks, deer, and some rodents in the mountains. We found a few rodent droppings in the kitchen upon waking up which wasn't so pleasant. Not a big deal as I grew up near the mountains and dealt with that quite a bit so I'm used to it. The only real issue we had was after checking out, Nick claimed there was "excessive dirt and linen soiling" after we left. When asked about it he said he'd provide pictures and receipts of professional house cleaning but never did. Unfortunately I don't think this owner is being honest and only intends to keep our deposit. It's unfortunate because we really liked the house itself. very relaxing, I just wish the owner was as relaxing to deal with. I would not recommend this place to a friend at this time.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at The Mountain House! It was the perfect place for our friends to get together for the weekend and relax. The house was just a short drive from Monterey and Carmel, but with the houses amazing views and relaxing vibe it was nice to stay in and chill. Very friendly and great service from Hotel 1110 I would definitely like to return.

Great House for lots of People

  • 4 of 5

This house was great for large groups of people. It had multiple decks, an outdoor fire pit/barbeque, lots of seating, etc. The location was a little out-of-the-way but it is only about 25 min. from Monterey and 10 minutes from the nearest Starbucks. The property needs a little love and the house is an odd mix of new and old decor with a bunch of chickens/roosters thrown in. The pluses: great for lots of people, a BIG, roomy house, great outside areas, lots of parking. The minuses: the refrigerator was extremely fishy-smelling, most of the halogen lights were burnt out in the kitchen, the WiFi was sketchy at best, the shower in the hall has no water pressure, no spatulas (for the barbeque or anywhere), and at some point, the receiver must have disappeared because there are speakers but nothing connected to them.
