The 6,000 sq. ft. Plateau House is beautifully situated on 5 wooded acres located on the edge of the Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve (8300 acres) where nature and eco-architecture harmonize to provide serenity, natural beauty, luxury and outdoor activities in a unique ecological environment. Conveniently located between LA and San Diego in Southern California's Wine Country (53 wineries and counting).
The Plateau House sits 50 ft from the trailhead (horses and mountain bikes) to the Sylvan Meadows-- leading to wooded areas with streams, vernal pools, Manzanita, and grasslands dotted with rare and ancient Engleman Oaks.
"Plateau Edge" was inspired by our son, Alexander. He has cerebral pralsy, is quadriplegic, and has intractable seizures. We needed a way to pay for his 24/7 nursing to sustain him in our retirement and after we are gone. Having Plateau Edge with our organic farm and being chefs, gives Alex a future and provides a beautiful place for our guests. We have had wonderful guests which has given our family such joy!
This area is beautiful; the beach weather comes over the mountains, only 14 miles away as the crow flys; the weather provides seasons but is perfect for sports and recreation year round; and this area has the only natural plateau in Southern California (8300 acres) that is literally on the property's doorstep. This area is one of only 7 Areas in the world to have a Mediterean Climate. This climate can grow almost everything, avocados, wine grapes, vegetables,fruits, flowers. Our organic farm is on an adjacent acreage and we do grow everything!! This area is the best kept secret in California!!!!
The property's architecture has a lot of connectivity to the outdoors with over 2,000 square feet of decks and 2,500 square feet of patios with glass doors that open up to those areas. Placed on 5 acres of a tree-filled property (manzanita, oak, and pine)with amazing views in a rural setting for gatherings, hiking, biking and the Plateau--and wine country. The property has all the amenities for entertaining and having fun with outdoor dining and sleeping, ping pong, horseshoes, and darts. There is a jacuzzi and a shared pool and firepit. Waking up to the magnificent sunrises and taking walks is everyone's favorite but evening stars out on a deck is fabulous too!

My husband and I had our wedding last weekend at Plateau Edge, and we could not have asked for or dreamt of a more perfect wedding. Laura and her family and staff are the most genuine and generous people we've ever met. As my husband and I were planning our wedding from across the country, Laura made everything easy, fun, and stress-free. We fell in love with Plateau Edge the moment we saw it, and we knew that we were well taken care of because Laura has a true passion for making people happy.
The venue itself is impeccable. We were able to fit 16+ people each night in the main house with room to spare, and Laura was kind enough to open her home to us for our rehearsal dinner barbecue. Views from both sites are breathtaking, and the house has everything you could ever need in it, so there's no need to spend time worrying about any extras you need to pack. My mom even put together our homemade wedding cake from the main house kitchen, and we were able to cook breakfast each morning for 16+ people with ease.
The ceremony site and reception hall look like something out of a fairytale. Laura uses beautiful wildflowers to decorate and the entire place smells like roses and lavender. Nearly everyone at our wedding commented on how it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to. You can customize your wedding or event just the way you want to. For us, we had a family member create a music playlist --- or you can hire a DJ. You can bring your own catering or cook yourself --- or Laura will have her impeccable staff cook for you (and really, after you try any of Laura's food, you will never want to go anywhere else again!).
Everything Plateau Edge does is top-notch. You are able to maximize your time with your family and friends and enjoy being made to feel like you are in the hands of the best quality and service available. We only wish we could repeat the time we had there over again and again. We already cannot wait to go back for anniversary parties and family get-togethers.
I cannot thank Plateau Edge enough for making our wedding more beautiful than we could have possibly imagined.
As stressful as weddings can be - this was not the case. There are so many nice things that I can say, because the wedding turned out perfect. So I am just going to say thank you. Thank you Plateau Edge for welcoming us into your home. Thank you for treating us like family. Our wedding was beautiful! Our flowers were beautiful! I can still taste the grilled prawns in my mouth! And my Grandma can't stop talking about the wedding cake! The lavender and succulent bouquets! Awesome! Thank you for not letting me worry. Thank you for just taking the time to talk to me because I KNOW how busy you are with everything. We love you all and hope to be back soon.
With love and light,
Mr. and Mrs. Hernan Rivera
One year ago today, the company I worked for was gearing up for our first retreat... in a different city over 1,000 miles away from our headquarters. With the help of Laura, her family, and her wonderful staff we were able to hold a retreat that was not only beautiful but life changing. Laura and Ron are beautiful people inside and out, and it shows in the beautiful oasis that they have created. I am so honored to have met them.
As the adage goes… there’s a first time for everything. I’m doing a first….. I was never big on making comments on social media, I figure there are too many people doing that already and didn’t want to clutter the cloud with more. But writing this review I felt that I had to….just my way of saying thank you to our wonderful host family over the weekend.
First of all let me say how lovely this family is…Laura, Ron and Alex. Laura is the most genuine human being you could ever meet. So warm and accommodating an extra ordinary mom. And Ron so helpful and welcoming, who give tips to look out for when you’re out and about wondering their orchard. And Alex, it was a pleasure to meet him, I must agree with Laura he’s indeed a handsome young man.
I have booked a lot of rental property over the years for family and friends but never have I experience the kind of accommodation and comfort this place offers.
My big family enjoyed the warmth of the rustic house and the homey feel of the barn. The kids had a lot of space to move about and places to explore around the property. They enjoyed the pool from across the property while the adults relaxed on the Jacuzzi. You really feel you’re so far from the hassle and bustle of the city when it’s just about 20 min down the hill to downtown Murrieta. Watching the sunrise in the balcony and an early morning walk on the property with it’s avocado grove and lines of grapevines was priceless.
When Laura told me all we need are clothes and grocery, she wasn’t kidding. You can even cross out the grocery and be served /catered by her and her staff. She did a dinner for our parents 60th Wedding Anniversary it was a delight… you really taste how fresh and organic the food is.
If this doesn’t convince you maybe knowing she bakes heavenly goodies might. You are greeted with a tray of cookies that melt in your mouth, and cup cakes that she bakes for the kids when they swim are moist and luxurious. And the piece de resistance… breakfast croissant that will make your day.
I would like to think that we have connected with a long lost friend and will be so looking forward to our next visit. Our big thanks to Laura, Ron, Alex and the staff for a vey enjoyable and relaxing weekend.
Till next time around “Au Revoir”…..the Ann Family
Five stars is simply not enough to rate Plateau House! We have rented several VRBO homes in the past, upsizing as our family has grown. The Plateau House, operated by Laura and Ron Komers, was absolutely the best place we could have ever chosen for our family gathering. We were 9 adults and 8 children (all under the age of 12!). Not only are they the most friendly owners to work with, but also Laura and Ron pay so much attention to every detail. They truly make sure that they do whatever they can to make every event there special. It was so kid friendly, and our family loved the outdoor activities- the pool, ping pong, horseshoes and volleyball. And the food was spectacular. Laura had a tray of fresh baked cookies waiting for us, and also prepared the most amazing croissants for our Sunday breakfast. One evening, we arranged for Laura to cater a special family meal, which included the best lasagna we have ever eaten, a lovely salad from their organic gardens, nitrate free grilled sausage, and fabulous cupcakes. The décor and the food were magazine photo worthy. When we posted the photos to friends, they were all asking us where on earth we were having this wonderful celebration. All of our gang agrees that this is definitely a place we would love to visit again!
I have two experiences to write a review on about this beautiful property and the owner Laura Komers. We rented this property for not only lodging for our friends and family but to host our wedding.
Wedding: Hiring Laura and her staff was the best decision we ever made. She made the whole wedding experience a relaxing one. All we had to do was make a few decisions prior to the date and literally show up for the wedding, she personally took care of all the decorating, catering, and event logistics. Her staff is welcoming and very accommodating. Our guests could not stop talking about the property and the food provided during the wedding. I would highly recommend her for any future weddings!!
Lodging: The house is HUGE and has EVERYTHING you need. All you have to bring are the clothes you will be wearing. The sauna was clean, and was used every night to relax. The views are beautiful and when you wake up you can watch the sunrise from the balcony. She even brought over the most amazing home made croissants. If you are looking for a place to spend time with friends and family this is the place to book. Her customer service is outstanding, she is passionate about her property and works hard to keep everything nice.
Thank you Laura!
