About Susan

Susan delivering eggs to a neighbor on her horse runnamucca/

Susan purchased this house in 1999

Why Susan chose Cayucos

We moved to Cayucos in 1976 and then discovered the Magetti Ranch on Cottontail Creek Rd. We raised our children in our 1886 home and still live here today.

When Cottontail Creek Ranch went on the market we wanted to expand agriculturally and it happened to come with a big unusual home on the property. The rest is history. This ranch is unbelievable ....

What makes this house unique

The ranch is located out of the way and yet so close to everything that the Central Coast has to offer.

Just 14 minutes from the beach and 15 minutes the opposite direction to the beginning of the Paso Wine Country.

Cayucos is old town at its best. 6 star restaurant and 5 star too.

Enjoy a day at Hearst Castle and come home to your private ranch ....

The ranch

  • 5 of 5

When you wake up in the morning and the sun rises and you hear the rooster down below at the farm, close to the pond, you really wonder where you are. You are surrounded by rolling hills slowly traversed here and there by dark cows. Hawks are circling high in the sky. Everything is peaceful. Still, you must be in a civilized world: below you there are straight lines of avocado trees. And, in the middle of them is the dusty trail by which you arrived yesterday, the only access from the outside world.

The house where you stay is a modern, octagonal lodge built half way up the slope of a hill. It is open on all sides and completely surrounded by decks where you can sit in the sun or the shade as you please. All rooms have their personality. You can feel that they have been furnished by a real family ready to share its own memories and prized possessions. Now all the rooms are occupied by members of your family – or your friends. And this is how you start the day at the Cottontail Creek Ranch. In a moment, all guests will come together in the front room, which is the kitchen. Because from there, especially, one has a complete panoramic view of the ranch. The view goes all around, miles away, across the hills, to the horizon. It is yours. There are no buildings, no roads, no cars, no electric lines in this view. The only people who share this paradise with you are the tenants of the farm, far below. You would have to climb the hill above the house to realize where you are. From there, you would find the ocean to the West, and in the South, through the haze, you would see Morro Rock.

There are a lot of things for everyone to do inside the house, on the ranch and nearby. This morning, some among us (the youngest) have insisted on going to the beach. A few others prefer to bike. A third group is going to visit the Hearst castle The elders are discussing a well-planned visit to vineyards around Paso Robles for wine tasting. And then…

Then, tonight we shall gather around the antique barbecue and, later in the evening, around the campfire with marshmallows, among crickets, under a starred sky. After that, we shall surreptitiously take out the telescope we brought with us and sneak a look at planets and stars. The air is so pure and the night so dark that here we can discover celestial objects that we have never seen at home.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had 15 guys getting away for a bachelor party.... and this place was perfect for our group. We did not want the typical Vegas trip, but wanted to be able to spend quality time with a close group of guys. We hardly left the house and pool area, and enjoyed every moment. The setup/design of the home was very unique and fitting as there are multiple areas that accommodate groups of people for "hanging out". We would have 4 to 5 groups of people in different places at any given time, (house hot tub, pool/pool house hot tub, fire pit, living room with fireplace) and wouldn't even know that the others were even there. The landscape was breathtaking with rolling green hills. Unfortunately, we never made time to do the ridge tour with Susan, but will have to do it next time. Great hospitality, and great accommodations. Cottontail Creek Ranch is one of a kind!

Thanks for everything Lyons!

50th Birthday Celebration with friends; new and old - great memories created!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about what an amazing experience we had at Cottontail Creek Ranch! It was the perfect location for a long weekend to celebrate my best friends Birthday! The accommodations were exactly what wee needed for a large group of 13, everything was very clean and updated. The kitchen was ideal for seating a large group with everything you could need to entertain. We spent a wonderful afternoon wine tasting in Paso Robles which was only 15 minutes away. The fire pit was a favorite gathering place at the end of the evening - it was so peaceful and the stars were amazing! The owner, Susan was very personable and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. She even gave us a personal truck tour of the property that offered breath taking views of the ocean and Moro Bay! We had such a great time and would definitely return again!!!

70th birthday celebration with kids and 6 grandkids - the oldest being 6

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time. The house and property was perfect for kids and their 6 little ones. The house was cozy and comfortable with toys inside and out. A separate building was great for building forts, playing ping pong and setting up trains. The adults had bocce ball, badminton, fire pit and wood barbecue that kept them interested. Really remote and beautiful but 20 minutes from the beach and spas. We loved it.

Family Gathering at the Ranch

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a fabulous unique location for your next family or friend gathering, Cottontail Creek is for you! There is something special for every member of your group to enjoy. On our second family get-together, our six grandsons, who begged for us to take them back, spent lots of time at the heated pool, playing ping pong and basketball, hiking the hills, and walking to the lake in hopes of catching a fish. The adults enjoyed cooking in the beautiful modern kitchen, sitting around the firepit, and taking hikes on the trails and roads.

The bedroom set up is perfect for families with each one having their own bath and several rooms have extra beds for children. The house is very well equipped with everything you need for a weekend or for an extended stay.

This beautiful property is very close to the charming towns of Morro Bay and Cayucos, but you may never want to leave. We live in the county and find that going someplace close to home with our entire family of 16 is much easier when there is little travel needed. This is a paradise just 20 minutes away!

Cottontail Creek Ranch

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect spot for our family to gather together in celebration of Ted's BIG birthday. The ranch is so beautiful with such picturesque landscape and vistas. The house interior is appointed attractively and has a warm feeling. The kitchen and dining area worked well for fourteen people. We were blessed with fabulous weather which meant the pool, spa, badminton, fire pit, and hikes were enjoyed by all!

We look forward to a return visit to Cottontail Creek Ranch!
