Susan purchased this house in 1999

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 ....

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.

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!

CTC COMPANY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the ranch was truly unforgettable. The owner personally greeted me with fresh out of the over cookies and took time to show me around the property step by step. We checked every inch of the house to make sure everything was working and in place. I rented the house for a work strategy meeting that started out over the weekend with our families and morphed into a business meeting. For the family portion we cooked dinner at the house, relaxed, swam, visited, played games then the final day took a wine tour followed by a catered dinner at the house. For the sales meeting we used the more than adequate room that already had screen's, white boards, note pads, etc... Everything we needed. This was followed by another amazing catered dinner and of course fun times around the fire pit. The staff was amazing and treated us like family. We will be planning another trip to CTC Ranch. I hope if you are reading this review you take my word for it, come to CTC ranch you won't regret it. It's got whatever you need trust me.

OUTSTANDING PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for the outstanding hospitality! My 13 person group has stayed in multiple large houses and this was by far the best --comfortable beds, incredible views, with gourmet and high end amenities that were all up and running. The hot tub was comfortable and ready to go, the heating was perfect, the kitchen was well-stocked with great utensils and appliances (which is great since we love to cook!). The property itself is just beautiful with incredible vistas, hiking, and great inspiration for our yoga class. Our amateur photographers were busy capturing the ambiance throughout the stay. There was a great authentic oak wood grill, the firepit was all set up for a beautiful campfire experience, and the warm cookies, farm fresh eggs, and recipie support for the ranch ground beef from our hostess put the entire experience over the top. Thank you from our entire well-rested group!

PERFECT RENTAL!

  • 5 of 5
All the other reviewers have it right -- and it is no surprise that 17 of 17 reviews (so far) have given it 5 out of 5 stars. 100 out of 100 stars would be a more accurate measure. We found the property while looking for a place to host a small family gathering that would be a halfway-point between those of us from Southern California and those from up North. The location was exactly right, and as so eloquently described in the other reviews, unbelievably beautiful and perfect in every detail. Our group consisted of 7 adults and 4 children (ages 3, 4, 9 and 12) and there was more than enough room for everyone. The house was spacious and laid out in such a way that our early-rising and energetic youngsters didn't disturb some of us old trolls who wanted to sleep in a little. I should also mention that it rained for much of our stay, and that didn't detract from our enjoyment of the property in the slightest. In some ways it even enhanced the beauty and tranquility.

Because of the short, winter days and our busy schedule of events, this trip went much too fast. I'm looking forward to returning to the Cottontail Ranch with my family again and again. I've rented vacation properties from VRBO and other similar organizations, and there's always a small amount of uncertainty when trying out a new place. Please let me assure you that this is as perfect a rental I've ever experienced, that more than exceeds any expectations built up by the glowing reviews or beautiful photos.

Happy New Year to all,
