PROPERTY AMENITIES:

This property is ideal for small family reunions and get-together's, corporate executive retreats, accommodations for nearby weddings, or for those wine enthusiasts interested in sharing the cost of a large, beautiful home and property by bringing a group of 4 - 5 couples.

A comfortable 3,500 sf two-story home; each room is decorated with a country theme that is quaint, inviting and relaxing. This fabulous property has everything from a beautiful baby grand piano in the music room to 2 separate family rooms with high definition flat screen tv's in each room - one room for the adults and the other for the kids or watch two separate football games at one time!

PROXIMITY TO WINERIES

Cripple Creek Mountain Ranch & Vineyard is located in the heart of the 'eastside' wineries and vineyards of Paso Robles. Paso Robles is fast-becoming the premier wine producing region of the Central Coast. The Central Coast rivals the Napa Valley featuring more than 200 wineries and vineyards in the region noted for their excellence in quality (this region is approximately 10 times the size of Napa).

On almost any given weekend one can find activities such as wine tastings and festivals, biking events, rodeos, and the famous Mid-State Fair.

RANCH ATTRACTIONS

Cripple Creek Mountain Ranch is a working ranch with a vineyard of cabernet sauvignon grapes surrounded by beautiful fruit trees, gardens (both flower and vegetable).

Please note, this is a dog and cat-friendly property.

At any one time during the summer you might be able to walk out to the gardens and pick peaches, nectarines, plums, apricots, apples, cherries watermelon, lettuce, corn, artichokes, cilantro, potatoes, onions, chives, squash, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and GRAPES!!

The ranch also has a small (220 vines) vineyard sloping down off of the pool. In 2009 we had our first harvest and crush. We bottled that barrel in April, 2012 and every bit of it has been consumed (yes, it was that magnificent)! We just bottled our 2011 barrel and critics say it is even better than the 2009. In addition, we have two barrels from 2012 which should be bottled this April. And our 2013 harvest was another bumper crop with 2 barrels! The little vineyard that could . . . :)

Cripple Creek Mountain Ranch & Vineyard is great fun for families with children as well as adults who appreciate the sweeping vistas and the intrigue of a gorgeous vineyard sloping down off the pool and entertaining areas.

Relax, away from it all, at this very magical place!

I fell in love with this magical place the first moment I saw it. My daughter and I were out for a Sunday afternoon drive in the country when we happened upon a private road with a realtor 'For Sale' sign. My daughter begged me to drive up the road to view the property. Reluctantly I turned onto the private road (worried we might be bothering the owners or tenants) and drove up to the very end of the lane which led us to the 'top of the world'. That innocent little side trip changed our lives forever . . .

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

The peacefulness of the ranch. And, of course, the views . . .

You are minutes away from Paso Robles, Atascadero, Templeton and San Miguel yet you feel as though you are in another world. Birds sing from dawn to dusk. Magnificent sunrises and sunsets. 13 acres away from it all 'on top of the world'.

Spacious 2 story country home overlooking the Creston valley below with vineyards,

ranches, the Huer Huera river and more to feast your eyes upon.

Large outdoor entertaining areas with a pool and jacuzzi.

Even though this is Central California, we have a distinct change of seasons and I love that!

A new adventure for Christmas!

  • Submitted: Dec 28, 2013

We rented this home for our family at Christmas this year. It was absolutely BEAUTIFUL inside and out. We had seven Grandchildren there at one time, and the home was very kid friendly, as well as the ranch it's self. They fed and petted the animals and kept very busy enjoying their surrounding as the adults did as well. The home is huge and we never felt cramped at all. Joanie and her husband Joe although present tending to the animals, never invaded our privacy, they were very nice and helpful and welcomed us with holiday cheer! Highly recommended by me and very thankful to the Green's for their kindness and hospitality.

The property is a nice property. However, the home is docorated with personal items and several photos of themselves and their family. The home and the outside of the property is a bit kitchy, or some may say it's cute. The owners are onsite during your stay to be sure you are following their list of rules. I've never had such a long list of things we're not allowed to do and we rent vacation homes several times a year. They say they live in the house part of the year when it's not rented. When rented, they live in the guest quarters. The owner works around the property and has all his tools and supplies in the garage to the house. I would not recommend walking on the wooden part of the deck around the pool unless you want splinters. If you take a morning stroll, walk down the middle of the drive because they discard the horse and donkey droppings along the side of the long dirt entrance driveway. Keeps you from getting close to the horse corral I guess, unless you want to stand on a burm of droppings. The house is clean until you look closely. We left it cleaner than when we arrived. We would not rate this property as a 5 star rental. If you don't mind the above, you will enjoy the view from the yard and it is off in the country so it's quiet.
Owner's Response: IF YOU WANT A CITY VACATION, CLEARLY CRIPPLE CREEK MOUNTAIN RANCH IS NOT FOR YOU.

Quite honestly, I was shocked to read this review. But, the statement that their experience was more like a B&B is definitely taken as a compliment.

As to the other issues expressed in this review, I am not sure how the person writing this review could have been so misinformed. He or she obviously did not read the details in our VRBO listing. Cripple Creek Mountain Ranch is a working ranch and we state that pretty clearly. In addition, contrary to one of their comments, we do not live in the vacation home at all.

Next, even though I do not charge a cleaning fee, I hire a cleaning crew to come in to clean the home and the jacuzzi is cleaned and filled with fresh water for each group. I have NEVER before had a complaint about the cleanliness of the home.

Finally, in the seven years we have been in business, I can't remember when we received less than a 5 out of 5 review. If you want to get a better perspective on past guest experiences at the ranch, please read the other 30 or so reviews before you come to a conclusion.

Clearly, nothing would have made this reviewer happy.

Wonderful Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 30, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
My family, friends and myself absolutely loved this place. It was the perfect place to celebrate with family. After everyone left my husband, son and I had a wonderful mini vacation. The owners are great. You can tell they have spent a great deal of time making a wonderful home and place for people to visit. So many charming details. Our son loved all the animals and I enjoyed feeding the horses apples. The pool and hot tub were a nice treat. If your looking for a place to get away from it all but not to far from town this is the place. Nice and peaceful. We will definitely stay again!

New Years Getaway above the clouds

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 27, 2013
  • Stayed: Dec 2012
We rented this beautiful home over New Years with 2 other families. We had a total of 6 adults and 4 children from the ages of 3 to 7, plus a one-year-old baby. The house was big and spacious, clean, and cozy. The views were spectacular. On the first morning there it felt like we were in the clouds as a fog had engulfed everything around us. It was wonderful to watch the fog slowly disappear and the vineyards around us slowly appear. the second morning was completely different as we awoke to warm and bright sunlight that lit up the beautiful kitchen and made us want to rush our breakfast to visit with the animals and sit in the hot tub.
The owners were out and about a few times while we were staying at Cripple Creek. They were very welcoming and friendly, yet gave us our space and peace.
Our kids loved the animals. We fed the chickens with our leftover food and gave the horses apples.
We never actually left the property during our 3-day-stay as the kids were entertained just by running around the big house and visiting the animals, playing in the hot tub or playing hide-and-seek inside the house. We also played a couple of games of soccer on the front lawn. The kitchen is fully stocked and we all love to cook together, so there was no need to leave the house.
I would recommend this place for a family reunion or get-together of friends. Great for any season!

Perfect Place for a Girls Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 31, 2013

This review is long overdue! I stayed at Cripple Creek Ranch this past October for three nights with 9 of my close girlfriends from Cal Poly. From the get go Joanie was extremely responsive to emails and phone calls so I knew I was in good hands. It just so happened the day before our group was set to arrive it had been raining all day, making the driveway somewhat unstable. I received a call early that morning from Joanie letting me know that the road may not be in driving condition, however she was going to do everything in her power to get us up to the property, aka enlisting her son-in-law to drive us up the hill to the property if our cars could not make it. Turns out we were all able to make it up the driveway safely without the help of her son-in-law, but it's that kind of hospitality that Joanie will offer if you stay at Cripple Creek.

The views are amazing, there is plenty of room in the house, the animals on the property are a fun bonus, the kitchen is fully stocked, there is plenty of toilet paper, the beds are comfortable, there isn't a bad thing I can say about this property. I would definitely consider coming back here!

Only item to note for future renters, the closest grocery store is about 10-15 minutes away so if you don't want to drive far while you're on property. Stock up on groceries before you get there!

Thank you Joanie!
