About the Property

Near the Pinnacles National Park, West Entrance

The Inn at the Pinnacles is a Mediterranean style home. We are just 1.5 miles from the West Entrance to our 59th National Park, the Pinnacles National Park. We also occasionally operate as a Bed & Breakfast when not renting out the entire home.

Our home is located on 160 acres of the Brosseau Vineyards Private Estate, Chalone Appellation, Monterey County, California. The surrounding vineyards and hillsides offer a peaceful, serene setting, with a spectacular night sky for stargazing.

Enjoy hiking, bird watching, rock climbing and picnicing at the Pinnacles National Park, a stroll and picnic in the vineyards, a game of bocce ball or horseshoes, an afternoon swim in our lovely pool, watch the sunset over the Santa Lucias, and enjoy an evening of stargazing in this rare 'dark sky' setting away from city lights. Chalone Vineyard and Tasting room are our neighbors. Other Monterey County wine tasting rooms are just a short drive to the River Road Wine Trail.

Our home has 7 bedrooms, each with a private bath. Six of the bedrooms can accommodate up to two adults and two children under 16, or three adults. Our seventh room has a double bed and can accommodate two adults. Our standard rate is for one to two persons per room, after two, there is an extra person charge of $50 per person per night. Only registered guests may have use of the Inn, guest rooms and its surrounding property.

Cancellation Policy: A 30-day notice is required in order to receive a full refund of your deposit. Your deposit will be forfeited if notice is less than the required number of days and we are unable to re-rent the room. The first day of the stay is counted as the arrival date, consecutive days cannot be counted as separate arrival dates. No refund will be given in the event of delayed arrival or early departure. Please call or e-mail for availability and reservations.

Please remember we are located in the country and co-habitating with wild animals who share this beautiful place. Some of the roads to the Inn are single lane, and unpaved, and the terrain may be uneven. Microwaves are provided in guest rooms and may interfere with pacemakers.

The Inn at the Pinnacles is a NON-SMOKING facility. Anyone smoking in guest rooms or the main house will be assessed a $250 fine. NO PETS ARE ALLOWED. Guests are responsible for any damages to the house, furnishings or fixtures.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

Why the Owner Chose Soledad, CA, USA:
When we first purchased this property in 1978, the land was undeveloped and had been used for cattle grazing. We bought the property with the intent to plant a small vineyard and also as a weekend getaway from Silicon Valley. Our first planting was 16 acres of Chardonnay and one acre of Pinot Noir wine grapes. Over the years we added more vines and varietals to include Syrah and Cabernet. We currently have 45 acres in vines and sell to about 10 winemakers throughout California. Our son manages the vineyards and has his own label, Brosseau Wines. In 1998 we decided a Bed and Breakfast would be a nice addition to the property. We started construction in 2000, and opened in April of 2002. We are now in our senior years and are offering our home occasionally as a vacation rental home.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
The beautiful vistas, and sunsets, the peaceful sounds of nature, and the scent of the wild grasses make this a unique place to come for rest and relaxation.
