Property description

“Pastures of Heaven” on 1600-Acre Historic Pine Canyon Ranch

What We Offer: 'Peace, Privacy, and Proximity'
(Only 20 minutes from Monterey.)

The guest wing of our adobe ranch house offers unsurpassed views of over 50 miles of valley and mountains, as well as, unobstructed views of sunrises and sunsets. With 2 ½ miles of ranch above and below the private wing, you will enjoy the peacefulness of being away from civilization. Located in the mid-ranch foothills, just up from our big red barn, over 50 species of birds are frequently seen, as well as, wildlife, horses, and cattle from the comfort of your private deck. Accommodations include a complete kitchen, queen size bed, futon, fireplace/heater, internet and cell phone service, bathroom, deck (with BBQ), and of course, spectacular views from inside and out.


Location/ History:
Nestled in the Santa Lucia Mountain Range half way between Salinas and Monterey, our 1600-acre family ranch is rich with ancient Native American, Spanish, homesteader, and outlaw history (We published a book on life on the ranch.).

Nearby Sites and Sounds:
We are centrally located in Monterey County, with Monterey, Carmel, Santa Cruz, wine tasting, Pinnacles National Monument, Laguna Seca, Carmel Valley, Steinbeck Museum, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, Pebble Beach, Big Sur Coast, Vision Quest Ranch, etc., all within about a 15 to 45 minute drive. In addition, we offer hiking (guided hikes only).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1942

About the owner: You will be the guests of Rod and Susan Neubert. Rod, a Rotarian, grew up on the ranch and published an account of his experiences and the colorful Old West history of the Pine Canyon area. Susan, with a degree in Biology, is a horse and nature enthusiast, as well as an avid bird watcher.

Why the Owner Chose Salinas, CA, USA:
This area from the Spanish era on has been known as 'Buena Vista' because of its spectacular views. Our upper ranch was Steinbeck's inspiration for 'Pastures of Heaven'.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
'Peace, Privacy, and Proximity': We are out in the country, yet a short drive to many local attractions. (Only 20 minutes from Monterey.)
