About the property

Hilltop Vineyard Family Estate, 118 acres, Overlooking Wine Country; Views!

Gorgeous hilltop views from this retreat away from home. Jones Ridge Ranch and Vineyard sleeps up to 12 people comfortably.

Stunning views, 4 bedrooms, 3 bath, gourmet kitchen, large dining and living room. Full gourmet kitchen with all the amenities you need including double ovens, warming drawer and SubZero refrigerator. A deck spans the length of the house overlooking Vineyard Drive and surrounding vineyards. During September through November, watch the crews harvest the wonderful grapes grown in the vineyard. Eastern views include sunrise and moonrise. Far out of town so the stars sparkle at night. Peaceful, quiet, relaxing but minutes from some of the best wine tasting Paso Robles has to offer. Lots of hiking opportunities on the 118 acres of woodlands and vineyard. Walk through the Chardonnay, Cabernet and Merlot vines, or visit cattail bog where wild cattails grow. Watch the deer run about the property, listen to the owls, play horseshoes or pingpong. Whole house audio (and on the back patio) throughout allows you to listen to your favorite source of music while enjoying the views. Grass for kids to play!

Unfortunately we cannot hold events at our property but it is a great place for you or your guests to stay while attending your event in the area.

This is NOT a party house. We are located in a private, gated enclave with neighbors nearby and sound travels far. Best suited for families or couples, quiet gatherings and relaxation.

Please note Holiday/Event weekends require a 3 night minimum stay.

About Jennifer Jones

We are a family who was looking for a peaceful getaway where our kids could roam safely and freely outdoors.

This is NOT a party house. We are located in a private, gated enclave with neighbors nearby. Best suited for families or couples, quiet gatherings and relaxation.

Jennifer Jones purchased this estate in 2012

Why Jennifer Jones chose Central Coast

We looked for 6 years and with the help of a local agent found this property and immediately fell in love with it. We love being there, seeing the scenery change and exploring it every time we visit. This is a second home for us.

Here's why we love Paso Robles:

What makes this estate unique

This hilltop haven is secluded, quiet, woodsy where we feel we are away from it all but it's in fabulous wine country! We get to grow grapes! It's got a bog that we've dubbed 'Cat Tail Bog' as it's surrounded by cat tails. The 118 acres is forested where we like to hike, explore, and just be outside. It's relaxing, quiet, got stunning views and is just heaven.

The house was built 9 years ago and is a custom home with every detail, even whole house vacuum, included. Custom tile work, views from every room, it's all so comfortable and relaxing. The open floor plan has great flow and doesn't feel cramped with 10 people! Pingpong in the garage is fun and we love to hike after watching the sun rise on the deck. We barbecue in the evening while watching the hilltops turn colors with the sun going down and enjoy the wildlife and a glass of wine in the tranquility.

It's a great place for gatherings with the open floor plan that brings the outdoors, in with all the glass doors that open up to the views of vineyards, hilltops, birds and sun/moon rises.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hello Jennifer,

Thanks for the expeditious refund.

We value the experience of Jones Ridge Ranch and Vineyard and hope to return later this year. The tree incident was only a minor inconvenience of nature and ( Property Manager) and the removal crew were very responsive in dealing with the incident. We are also appreciative of the staff at Pasolivo for the use of their landline to contact Mindy about the tree; our cell service (AT&T) was not available in the area.

The elegance of your property and tranquility of the ridge are the primary features that attract us back to Jones Ridge. The subtle daily climate changes and constantly visible and audible wildlife contribute to the experience....

Incredible, comfortable, beautiful getaway house!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing weekend at Jones Ridge. The place was perfect for our group of 10 people celebrating my husbands birthday. The rooms were great and 3 bathrooms was amazing. The kitchen provided all that we needed, the dining table fit us comfortably, and the couches were sooo comfy. We loved hanging out at the end of the day at sunset out back with our bounty from wine tasting and watching the woodpecker that flies back and forth from tree to tree out there. If you get up early enough in the morning you can hear him/her lightly pecking away. They supplied lots of games like corn hole and a swing the rope thing, board games and more. We all just felt very relaxed in this exquisite and inviting home. Also, the directions were perfect as it's pretty far out, but all of us made it up there! Thank you Jennifer for providing the space for a special birthday weekend. We will be back!!!

Amazing property! Amazing location, Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time. The home was well equipped to accommodate 5 couples. We will definitely stay there again. So much better than a hotel, but that's obvious. Very peaceful, and great proximity to fun wineries that we love.

Thank you so much!

Ryan C.

Perfect weekend at Jones Ridge Ranch

  • 5 of 5

Another wonderful weekend at Jones Ridge Ranch. The weather was rainy & threatening, but we still enjoyed the warmth of the house, the wood-fire grill, beautiful vistas, & the lands around this gorgeous estate property. Looking forward to our next trip already!

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Jones Ridge Ranch was a breathtaking find. It's very secluded & a bit removed from town, but that provided ample motivation for some great home-cooked meals. While the Santa Maria-style grill took some getting used to, the flavor of the local wood was a wonderful addition to the food we prepared. Incredible views from the patio & each of the bedrooms; the sunrise each day above the cloud bank in the valley below was amazing. A very special property. Definitely hope to return on our next trip!

Stunningly Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

I had read the reviews, one which said that the photos did not do the property justice--and that turned out to be a significant understatement. It was stunningly beautiful, with a panorama that made you feel as if you had been magically transported into the hills of Tuscany. There were nine mature, accomplished individuals in our group, all successful in different professions, and all well-traveled, and we were all mesmerized by how lovely the setting was. One night, all nine of us sat in the deck, stunned by the awesome view of the night sky, with a view of the Milky Way as clear as I have ever seen. I don't ever recall a group of adults sitting as we did, in stunned silence, just watching the sky. Everyone in our group asked me the same question: How did you find this place? (and when can we return again?) The house is extremely comfortable and cozy, with everything you need provided, and designed in a way that all rooms face that magnificent view. I could go on, but you get the picture. I commend Jen and her family for their magnificent house, and thank them for letting us be guests there. We all agreed that we should return.

Located just off Vineyard Dr. between Thacher and Whalebone vineyards in the heart of the beautiful Central Coast wine region, Jones Ridge Ranch and Vineyard is a secluded hilltop retreat with breathtaking views on 118 acres of hiking, forest and vines. The one mile, paved driveway, meanders through an operating vineyard leading to the house. Relax and enjoy a glass of wine while sitting on the deck or walk in the wooded areas surrounding the house. Minutes away from over 200 wineries, day adventures, local shopping and Farmer's markets await your visit to Jones Ridge Ranch and Vineyard. We can be found on maps between Thacher and Whalebone vineyards on a private 1000 acre ranch once owned by Hollywood producer King Vidor.

We are not set up to hold events such as weddings or parties.
