“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.
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.).
