Lovingly preserved and freshly restored, this rustic beauty sparkles! Architecture is reminiscent of Yosemite's Ahwahnee Hotel, with cathedral ceilings, stripped redwood beams, and 4 river rock fireplaces. This idyllic retreat was built in 1930 by Pebble Beach residents, Grace and Paul Veeder to relax and entertain guests.
Cherished by our 5 family generations as a private hideaway home, The Ranch House is now offered as an exclusive, executive family retreat that today's multiple generations can treasure as they enjoy precious time together.
Exquisite kitchen, 2 quaint bathrooms (pedestal tub/shower in the guest suite and a candlelit fireplace shower in the master suite) with custom furnishings throughout. Careful preservation and upgrades adorn this historic treasure.
Just 15 minutes from Carmel, and its coastal fog, The Ranch House at Garzas Creek soaks in Carmel Valley sunshine most of the year. Minutes away to golf, horseback riding, shopping, fine dining, & wine tasting.
Our 3 bedroom / 2 bath rustic Ranch House comfortably accommodates 8 - 10 people (2 queens and 2 bunk beds) with Sheraton Sweet Sleeper mattresses and luxury linens for the most discriminating travelers. The Ranch House offers the best of yesterday with the luxuries of today.
We invite you to come discover this exceptional retreat, in a secluded canyon on 50+ acres, (1/4 mile off a quiet residential road). Features include: custom kitchen with radiant-heat tiled floors, tiled counters, custom redwood cabinets, spacious great room with majestic river rock fireplace, original wide plank redwood floors, original 'twig furniture,' Native American and early Californian art, 8' pool table, massive outdoor stone fireplace on terrace, new private hot tub, seasonal creek, and plenty of land to hike on and explore with exclusive, private trail head access to Garland Regional Park.
Equestrians, bring your horses on vacation, and stable up to 3 horses steps away from The Ranch House in our covered shed row, with 12 x 24' stalls. Ideal for trail riders and show horses. Trail riders will enjoy private access to 4500 acres of rugged mountain terrain, mountain streams and hidden Redwood Canyon in Garland Park.
Horse show participants will have peace of mind, knowing your equine friend is under your watchful eye - away from the bustle of show grounds. You both will relax in comfort, quiet, and convenience. Show venues are nearby. The Carmel Valley Trail and Saddle Club is a hack away. Pebble Beach Stables are 25 minutes away. Monterey County Fairgrounds are 30 minutes away.

Mom and Dad are our 3rd generation family partners. We are grateful to them for allowing us to use The Ranch House as a place where we can come and stay when we're in town, and rent to you the rest of the year! We think Great-Grands Paul and Grace, and Granny and GrandDad would be pleased, too! This is a family enterprise, and we feel truly blessed to share our heritage with you.
Colleen Marquez purchased this cabin in 1930
Samuel F.B. Morse was our Great GrandDad's friend from Yale. He persuaded Paul and Grace to buy almost 800 acres in Carmel Valley, and a handful of lots in Pebble Beach in the late 1920's. They loved escaping the fog on the coast to visit the Carmel Valley sunshine. Nice choice!
Be properly warned. There is never enough time to enjoy your stay at The Ranch House. Time here is so slow and charming, you will almost feel you are in a dream. But no matter how many nights you stay, it is NEVER enough time, and the last day at The Ranch House will come too quickly. So plan to stay an extra day whenever possible!
The house was INCREDIBLE! We had such a wonderful time. The house was simply gorgeous!! The things that you bought are first class. It was very fun to be the first guests. We had a great family weekend. We hope to return soon!
So peaceful. And a hot tub in the woods!? Mr Gary the caretaker was amazing - kids still talking about the chickens and horses. And he & his lovely wife took us on a beautiful tour of the horses! We were amazed by the chain of state trails in the area - connecting right up to Garzas. Our 4yo and 6yo had no trouble hiking 6 miles each day. And - you can see the ocean! A class act all around. Keep this one a secret! Amazing linens, bathrobes for all, and radiant floor heating. Thank you all. This was better than the Monterey Aquarium. And we found the best newts I've ever seen. THANK YOU GARZAS CREEK!
I have never stayed in a place where the charm of days gone by met up with the comforts of the present day so seamlessly. i.e: The bathroom has a gorgeous river- rock century old fireplace, but also has heated tiled floors! So much attention has been paid to the details inside and outside of the home. It was often hard to decide if we would rather stay indoors and enjoy the comfort of the home or go outdoors and explore the acres of wooded wilderness. Our only regret with our stay at The Ranch House was that we didn't stay longer. I HIGHLY recommend this home!
The other reviews say it all - its charming, cozy, comfortable and Colleen is a peach! Here's what set The Ranch House apart for our family: we wanted something close to the Holman Ranch event venue (it is!) needed to sleep 10 adults (it did!)
had to evoke all kinds of sentimental childhood memories and keep the current crowd of "kids" occupied (check and check!) There is already talk of going back for a warm weather reunion. Loved it-
I chose the Ranch at Garzas Creek for a last minute birthday "staycation" celebration for my husband. While I only live 15 minutes away from the Ranch, I felt like I was a million miles away! It was perfect from the first inquiry I made, which was answered within minutes of being submitted. The owner was gracious and welcoming, and arranged for me to preview the house before committing. I don't think there could be a photograph that captures the feeling of this home - the feeling of peace, the rushing sound of the creek, the "in the middle of nowhere-ness" (although there are amenities clost by) that you feel as soon as you step inside the gate. The exquisite attention to detail, the spic and span cleanliness, the historic charm and well thought-out amenities (especially the hot tub and the pool table!!) all made for a fabulous epxerience for us, and for a handful of our local friends, all of whom raved about the place the minute they walked through the door. We are all in the hospitality business, so we recognize the extra effort the owners have put in place to ensure a seamless stay.
My only regret was only booking two days. If we could, we would have stayed a week or longer. We will definitely be back and I highly recommend it to anyone considering a stay in the area, or anyone from the area looking for a getaway for themselves or their friends and family.
We loved spending six days here with our dog. The house is charming and very comfortably and thoughfully furnished -- good beds and linens, good kitchen appliances, radiant heat under the floors. Loved the hot tub, the outdoor fireplace, being near Garland Ranch Regional Park's miles of trails, cooking "just-laid" eggs from the Ranch's chickens. We plan to go back next September. Our dog was very happy here. It's legal for a dog to be off-leash on the Garland Park trails, as long as the dog is in the human's sight and under voice control. There are two good restaurants within a mile or two -- Bernardus and Cafe Rustica. Enjoyed wine-tasting in Carmel Valley Village (about a mile from house).
Our family (six of us) spent five wonderful days at the Ranch House. We were greeted by the caretaker who introduced us to the house, gave us some history, and informed us of the trails to be hiked, which we did first thing the next day at Garland Regional Park (trail just outside the house). The house was so comfortable and spacious with authentic decor of days-gone-by. The owners have done a fabulous job of restoring this gem. We loved sitting in the hot tub and listening to Garza Creek flow by; had lunch and dinner outside beside the huge fireplace; and even witnessed sheep shearing! Everyone who works on the ranch was so cordial and gracious - we want to come back! Thanks, for making this time such a treat.
