The Acorn is located 2 miles south of Carmel across Highway One from Point Lobos State Park - one of the most magnificent and picturesque areas on the West Coast. This property is located on approximately 5 acres on the top of a knoll overlooking Carmel Bay, Pebble Beach and Point Lobos. Surrounded by open space and park land, the Acorn is a very private setting yet only a 5 minute drive to a new Safeway, shopping and Carmel-by-the-Sea shops and dining. Golf, scuba diving, hiking, beaches -- all close by. Big Sur is a scenic drive just 40 minutes south on Highway One. In addition to the main house, there is a charming guest house with full accommodations.
The Main House: The main house features a king master suite with sliding glass doors that provide romantic, breathtaking views of Point Lobos and Pebble Beach and access to the home's expansive deck. There is also a queen bedroom with separate bathroom and dressing room that also has access to the deck via sliding glass doors. Two additional bedrooms each have two twin beds. A sofa bed in the parlor/game room provides additional sleeping accommodations.
Guest House: The guest cottage is a charming, cozy 2-room cottage with a king bed, full bath, kitchenette and laundry. This unique cottage provides ultimate privacy from the main house should you so desire. Yet it is close enough to provide additional guest accommodations for friends or family.
Please note , no Events of any kind are permitted at The Acorn Ranch Home.

Gorgeous scenery: loved the wild life
Great place, waking up every morning to see wild turkeys in the pasture was a highlight for the grandkids! They also loved the horses grazing in the pasture behind the house!
The scenery from the house and back porch was breathtaking!!
We also enjoyed the short drive to town and the closeness of the supermarkets and fresh fish market!
Warm, inviting home with picturesque ocean views
My family had a wonderful stay at Acorn ranch. The views are extraordinary and the home and the property are lovingly maintained and well stocked. My girls loved seeing the horses when they arrived and the front yard and garden made for an epic Easter egg hunt. We've vacationed in the Carmel area for 20 + years and this home may be our favorite. Thanks again for an amazing vacation. Vic
Very nice for my family
Everything worked and the home was beautiful great views.
An incredible property in every way!
We have rented many great houses, but Acorn will undoubtedly go down as one of our favorites. Not only is the location and views incredible, but the house itself is so wonderful---there is not a corner in it that does not make you think of the history of the place and the loving extended family that made it their home for all those years.
Just minutes from Carmel and Pt. Lobos, it feels as if you are on a farm in the country. Our toddler loved the horses, the cow, the cat, and the huge wild turkey family who all share the property. The house is also the best equipped we've ever been in. We cooked almost every meal there and were astounded that we were never missing a tool or pot--all the kitchen essentials...and more.. were there.
We were also so impressed with how quickly Mark replied whenever we had a question ( wifi) or problem ( lights). Thanks so much to Sara, Patrick and Mark for an fantastic family reunion.
Thank You so much for your kind words, and for taking such good care of the Acorn. Please come back soon!
The Whisler Family
Wonderful house, wonderfully and fully equipped, a highlight of an already spectacular trip.
What a view, what a house
We had a group of 10 of us (all family ) from around the world. The house was fantastic, the views and location were magical, and the whistler family were very helpful with anything we asked for. The house is well stocked if you want to cook a gourmet meal, or go get food and sit around the large table. The house is arranged so that people could have privacy to do their own thing or equipped for a large group to gather and talk and play games. The location is fantastic, we hiked, golfed, shopped, took wine tours, went to Big Sur and just relaxed. Thank you for sharing this wonderful home
