About Kathy

My husband and I have been happy owners of this property since 1996. We immediately fell in love with the panoramic view and privacy! We think you will love it too.

Kathy purchased this house in 1996

Why Kathy chose Central Coast

This property sold itself to us with its never ending picturesque views and the charming character of a once active almond orchard.

What makes this house unique

In the past few years vineyards have sprouted up and surrounded us, there is no better place than this! We will gladly send you off in the right direction for wine tasting and weekend fun if you desire to leave the property at all! We are centrally located just minutes from anything you may desire. We have the small historic town of Templeton to the west, walk back in time with a stroll down Main Street. Paso Robles is just to the north with all of its unique boutiques, restaurants, wineries and a large event almost every weekend. If you choose to visit the coast, the beach is appx 30-40 minutes away. Owners are on premises for all your trip needs. 'LIKE' Crooms Moonlight Ranch on Facebook!

Amazing sunsets in the heart of wine country! Just minutes to Paso Robles
average rating of 5.0 based on 20 reviews

We loved the location and the view! The owner left fresh eggs and cheesecake,

  • 5 of 5

This location appears to be in the country. It the middle of the vineyards, but within 5 to 20 minutes of all the wineries. We were welcomed with fresh eggs and English muffins for breakfast, a bottle of bubbly and a cheesecake. The inside is lovely and we enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and sitting out on the deck eating dinner and enjoying our wine! I have never stayed in a more welcoming and clean VRBO. I would stay here again in a minute! Thanks again for the wonderful food and the fresh flowers!

Beautiful, relaxing, and comfortable get away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our 2nd wedding anniversary. The outside deck was our favorite part. We enjoyed beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The house was very comfortable with everything we needed. The host went out of her way to put fresh flowers throughout and surprised us with an anniversary treat. It was a little out of the way, but that's what we were looking for. It was very relaxing and great wineries nearby. Would definitely recommend for a quiet, beautiful weekend.

A Perfect Wine Country Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

We came from San Francisco to meet friends from L.A. for a few days of wine tasting and enjoying the beautiful country around Paso Robles. The Croom's Moonlight Ranch house was the perfect retreat for us! We were greeted warmly by Kathy, her husband and their gentle boxer Marley. The house was much bigger than we had expected with a large deck overlooking the vineyards where we spent our mornings drinking coffee and enjoying the myriad of treats Kathy so generously left for us; homemade monkey bread (!!!) eggs, english muffins, orange juice and more. It was also a great place to hang out in the evenings under a sky of stars. The charming town of Templeton is about a 10 minute drive, with restaurants and cafes. The small infinity pool is a bonus, although with the cool temperatures in the morning and evening and so many places to explore during the day, we hardly had time to enjoy it--another time!

A peaceful and relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Crooms Moonlight Ranch was the perfect place for our recent girls weekend in the Paso Robles area. Kathy our host was so kind and accommodating from the moment we first booked until the morning we left. The house was stocked with everything we could need. The only thing we needed to bring was clothes and food which we picked up at the Trader Joe's in Templeton. Although, we didn't need eggs as our host provided them fresh from the ranch and they were delicious! The house had plenty of room for the three of us and never felt cramped. We really enjoyed the large deck located directly off of the family room area. We enjoyed exploring the wine region and had two fantastic wine tasting experiences one at Chronic Cellars and a great tour at Adelaida Cellars. After our days exploring the area the ranch was a perfect place to return to and enjoy an afternoon by the pool.

Crooms Moonlight Ranch was exactly what the three of us were looking for to relax and reconnect. We look forward to staying there again sometime!

Beautiful place to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Croom's Ranch. Kathy was so accommodating. This place is beautiful inside and out. The kitchen is spacious and great for cooking in. The pool is a stunning infinity pool. The deck attached to the family room is spacious and has a beautiful view overlooking the vineyards. We made a bunch of plans, but found ourselves not wanting to leave the ranch. When we did, we found that the local wineries were just as gorgeous and fun as those that were located in Paso Robles. Great location for visiting the coast and Paso Robles. I am a pretty critical person when it comes to vacation rentals, and I would definitely give this place 5 stars and visit again. Thank you Kathy!
