About Marjan Kelsey

Greengate Ranch has a history dating back to the 1800’s as a dairy farm, but is best known for its rise to international acclaim under the ownership of Jay and Dorothy Stream, who occupied the ranch from the 1950’s until 2012. The Streams, often in partnership with Jay’s client, the legendary Wayne Newton, bred world class Arabian horses after turning this majestic piece of land into a top notch horse facility. Jay Stream was a Past President of the International Arabian Horse Association (IAHA), inspired the Arabian Horse Society and was President Emeritus of the World Arabian Horse Organization (WAHO), having served as President for 31 years. His international recognition popularized the ranch as it became home to world class Arabian events and extravagant galas and auctions attended by celebrities, royalty and luminaries from the Middle East who traveled half way across the globe to visit Greengate Ranch.

Jay Stream has since passed away and Dorothy Stream moved to Arizona. The property and all of its facilities had fallen on hard times and were in need of a substantial restoration project. A local family purchased the property in July of 2012 and immediately went to work restoring the grounds and structures to their previous grandeur. Virtually every structure, pasture, fence, and dwelling has been completely overhauled. A brand new riding arena and a 75 acre vineyard are the latest additions to the ranch. The owners take great pride in restoring this once proud property that sits at the gateway to historic Edna Valley. We aim to provide the premier ranch and vineyard experience in California. We hope to see you at the Ranch soon!

Pictures don't do this place justice!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing - the pictures just don't do this place justice! The house was very accommodating and Marjan made the process very easy. The location of this house was perfect, allowing easy access to both downtown SLO and wineries. We definitely hope to return again!

Thanks Marjan!

I fell in love with this place!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this place for my daughter's 2015 June graduation weekend and absolutely fell in love with the house and its surroundings! The pictures on VBRO were excellent but I can't even describe how truly beautiful the place is until you see it for yourselves. The weather was fantastic, have a lot of sunset pictures and gorgeous background pictures wherever you stand outside. Accommodations were excellent, plenty of beds, bathrooms, amenities, living space, kitchen space and bar space for all. Bocce ball and horseshoes outside was a definite plus, along with shuffle board and ping pong table inside. You could get lost in the place, it's so big! Both sides of grandparents had their own bedroom/bathroom to retreat to when family and friends got too loud so privacy was not a problem (almost everyone had their own bathroom too). I hope we can rent again in future since no other house we've rented can compare. Excellent service in greeting us and making us feel welcome. Admiring the surrounding vineyards, mountains and seeing their beautiful horses were added treats. I know our whole family plus their friends will remember this place for a very long time. I highly recommend this place for a vacation of a lifetime.

Perfect for big gatherings

  • 5 of 5

Honestly, I wish there were 6 stars for this property because this place deserves it. This house really exceeded all of our expectations (which were pretty high, due to the description and the fantastic photos on VRBO). We rented the house for a 10th anniversary celebration with 8 of our closest friends. The house was more than enough room for all of us, and every detail in the house is well thought-out and high quality (2 air mattresses, just about everything you'd ever want in a kitchen, poker chips in the game room, etc.). Almost all of the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms. The best part of the weekend was all of the time we got to spend outside on the huge dining table and the couch with a firepit. The huge chef's kitchen and outdoor grill area and patio were perfect for having a big cookout on with all of the food we'd bought at the SLO Farmers Market. All of our friends agreed that we would absolutely come back and stay at the ranch house! Would be perfect for smaller family reunions, gatherings of friends, and pre-wedding gatherings.

SLO is really a great area to visit. Besides the Thursday night Farmers Market, downtown SLO is worth visiting for its great restaurants and shops. We really enjoyed Novo, Big Sky Cafe, Scout Coffee, and Sidebar. We also spent a couple of days visiting wineries in Paso Robles (our favorites were Denner, Turley, Adelaida, and Whalebone) and had a fantastic dinner at Artisan Restaurant in downtown Paso. The Montaña de Oro State Park is a 35 minute drive from the house and definitely worth a visit.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there with two families (totaling 18 people), renting out the ranch house and the carriage house for the weekend. It was a fantastic location - plenty of room for the little kids to run around, pet and feed carrots to the horses (and ride if they were a little older), plenty of room for the adults to roam around, play horseshoes and bocce. The houses are really top notch and they have thought of everything - plenty of dishes, utensils, towels. It was a huge bonus too that almost all the bedrooms had their own en suite bath. We weren't wanting for anything and everyone at Greengate was incredibly helpful and easy to work with. I would highly recommend it.

Four families, each with young kids, fit perfectly in this house, with plenty of room to spare. Total peace -- kids running around getting dirty, parents not worried about where they were, just perfect. The house has everything, all new, with more room than you'll know what to do with. A wonderful find.

Spectacular location and house

  • 5 of 5

We needed a location for a holiday family gathering, with accommodation for two families, and feeding a total of 30 people. The house was perfect in all respects: a fully equipped kitchen, 6 great bedrooms, outside barbecue and patio, a room where kids could be apart from the adults and entertain themselves, wonderful views and setting. It could not have been better. Very helpful management. i would highly recommend.
