“Pastures of Heaven” on 1600-Acre Historic Pine Canyon Ranch

What We Offer: 'Peace, Privacy, and Proximity'

(Only 20 minutes from Monterey.)

Our newly remodeled guest wing of our adobe ranch house offers unsurpassed views of over 50 miles of valley and mountains, as well as, unobstructed views of sunrises and sunsets. With 2 ½ miles of ranch above and below the private wing, you will enjoy the peacefulness of being away from civilization. Located in the mid-ranch foothills, just up from our big red barn, over 50 species of birds are frequently seen, as well as, wildlife, horses, and cattle from the comfort of your private deck. Accommodations include a complete kitchen, queen size bed, futon, fireplace/heater, internet and cell phone service, bathroom, deck (with BBQ and fire pit), and of course, spectacular views from inside and out.

Location/ History:

Nestled in the Santa Lucia Mountain Range half way between Salinas and Monterey, our 1600-acre family ranch is rich with ancient Native American, Spanish, homesteader, and outlaw history (We published a book on life on the ranch.).

Nearby Sites and Sounds:

We are centrally located in Monterey County, with Monterey, Carmel, Santa Cruz, wine tasting, Pinnacles National Monument, Laguna Seca, Carmel Valley, Steinbeck Museum, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, Pebble Beach, Big Sur Coast, Vision Quest Ranch, etc., all within about a 15 to 45 minute drive.

You will be the guests of Rod and Susan Neubert. Rod, a Rotarian, grew up on the ranch and published an account of his experiences and the colorful Old West history of the Pine Canyon area. Susan, with a degree in Biology, is a horse and nature enthusiast, as well as an avid bird watcher.

Susan purchased this farmhouse in 1942

This area from the Spanish era on has been known as 'Buena Vista' because of its spectacular views. Our upper ranch was Steinbeck's inspiration for 'Pastures of Heaven'.

'Peace, Privacy, and Proximity': We are out in the country, yet a short drive to many local attractions. (Only 20 minutes from Monterey.)

Great experience. More than just an overnight stay, but a feeling of history and life on a ranch.

We visited over a 3 day weekend with our 3 boys. Rod and Susan were great, taking us out to see the chickens (and pick up some eggs!), their horses, and a walk around the meadow. They also showed us their museum room, with some very interesting old artifacts and provided a copy of Rod's book about stories from the Ranch. We really felt like their guests rather than just overnight renters. Our boys said the tour was the best part of the trip. Also, part of the guest room area has adobe from the original house, circa 1920s. Plenty of old stuff scattered around the property (old wagons, sheds, cattle bones, etc.) that created great questions from the boys.
Overall, a really great experience; relaxing, and great way to talk to our boys about history, life on a ranch, and life in the country.

We'll never stay in a hotel again; that's for sure. What a beautiful, tranquil place. Rod and Susan couldn't have been more gracious and the rustic house was just the perfect place for us. Unfortunately, we had so much planned that weekend that our conversations were short, but my husband went home and looked up all the trails and history of the property and we'll be headed back there soon. Beautiful nighttime view of the Salinas Valley from the deck and bedroom, birds abound, and all you could need by way of gadgetry is in the kitchen. Enjoy...we did!

I loved sitting on the deck with a good bottle of wine and enjoying the amazing view. The unit was cozy and clean inside. My kids loved visiting the animals on the farm especially the horse program that Susan provided for them. We've done a lot of intro to horseback riding programs, but this one was the best! Because there are six horses they got to observe them together interacting in a more natural setting. It was great! Adjacent to Wild Things AKA Monterrey Zoo. Very close to Carmel and Monterrey for day trip and provides a quiet and restful retreat after a long day of site seeing. And the stars are fantastic!

My husband and I spent a long weekend at this guest house and absolutely loved it. We spent the days in Monterey, Pacific Grove, Carmel etc. and loved coming 'home' at the end of a long day. This guest house is very clean. Kitchen has all that you need. The views off the deck are truly spectacular. I can't say enough about Susan. She answered all of our silly city-slicker questions and introduced us to all the animals, which was a real treat. On our last night two deer were right out in front of the deck. Perfect way to end our little trip. In addition to this wonderful rental, I so appreciated the simplicity of their rates. I wish other vrbo's would do the same. I look forward to returning.
