About the property

Farmhouse, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Peaceful country setting on the Olivas de Oro olive orchard with neighboring vineyards and wine tasting. Rancho Olivas de Oro is a working olive ranch with 140 acres of century old olive trees. We also raise Katahdin sheep to graze on the grass and prune the lower branches on the olive trees. Lambs are born April through August.

Enjoy the peace and quiet of the country with the benefits of being close to other activities. We are centrally located, just 15 miles to the downtown areas of Paso Robles, Templeton and Atascadero, 38 miles to Cambria and Hearst Castle, and 29 miles to San Luis Obispo. You've got lots of choices. Take the day to tour the many wineries in the area, take a scenic drive to the coast and Hearst Castle, or visit San Luis Obispo for a day of shopping in the boutiques. We are located on The Creston Winery Trail and are part of The Backroads Wineries. Gourmet meals await in downtown Paso Robles or make your own in our well-appointed full kitchen. Finish your day by gazing at the stars by the fireplace with a glass of local wine.

The farm house has been newly remodeled. The master bedroom (The Sevillano Room) features a California King bed, lounge, writing desk and private bath. The second bedroom (The Mission Room) features an Eastern King bed and a comfy reading chair. The third bedroom (The Arbequina Room) features a Queen bed and a sitting area.

There is a lot of privacy in the home. The bedrooms are on opposite sides of the house and are separated by a large common living area which includes a full kitchen, dining area, living room, and sitting area. There is a porch with seating in the front of the house and a porch and sunken patio in the back of the house. Enjoy the gas BBQ, patio seating, dining, and gas fireplace in the sunken patio overlooking the rolling hills of the orchard. If that's not enough room for you, wander around the 160 acres of olive trees or stop in the tasting room to try some or our olive oils, olives, vinegars, dirty martini juice, and ranch goodies.

We start off your stay with a bottle of local wine and some of our olive oils and vinegar with bread. The showers are stocked with our olive oil soap. We also provide coffee and sweeteners.

You may also use this location for family reunions, weddings and other events. Please contact us to find out more. There is also an additional charge events.

If you want something closer to town, we also have a vacation house in Paso Robles just 2.5 miles from the center of town. www.vrbo.com/827477

About Marti Menacho

We've been growing and making olive oil since 1999. We love good friends, good food, and good wine. We enjoy entertaining and cooking and are always trying new things.

Our original olive orchard was in Oroville in Northern California. It was a great orchard, but not in the place where we wanted to be. We were lucky and received an offer from a developer to buy the land. He wanted the land and we wanted the trees! It was our opportunity to move our trees to the land that we wanted. We purchased the ranch in Creston and moved 2000 century old olive trees from Oroville to our ranch in Creston in 2007.

Marti Menacho purchased this farmhouse in 2005

Why Marti Menacho chose Central Coast California

We had been coming to Paso for over 20 years to visit friends and attend the wine festival. We always hated to leave. We enjoy the sense of community and quality of life, the beautiful countryside, good wines and dining.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We love the serenity of the land and the peacefulness of the sheep grazing while listening to the tinkling of their bells. Star gazing, sitting next to the outside fireplace and enjoying a glass of wine from a neighboring winery is the best.

Wonderful Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Thank You so much! We had a wonderful family weekend. Your ranch was close enough for great wine tasting during the day and made for a great place for a family BBQ in the evening. We all loved the outdoor sunkened patio and fireplace and the blanket of stars which we never see in the Bay Area. Your Olive Oil tasting room was a fantastic way to start and end our trip! Can't wait for the return trip.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice. We loved the patio. It was dark at night so the stars we're amazing! It was also fun to see the sheep. We really had a nice time.

Great Stay at Rancho Olivas De Oro

  • 5 of 5

Stay there was great, plenty of room for the six of us, very comfortable. House was well furnished and clean, grounds were great, as was the olive oil tasting experience. Rachel was great in walking us through the difference in the various oils. In the evening we enjoyed the fire in the sunken patio, watching the stars and the birds out hunting. Watching the sheep was also a great experience. The place is also centrally located allowing us to visit Morro Bay, wineries in Paso Robles etc. The only con we had during the whole experience is that it would have been nice to have a hand rail to get down and back up from the patio. The disadvantage of all of us being senior citizens.

Perfect country getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here took us away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and put us smack in the middle of an exquisite olive farm. Plenty of fun for adults and kids too (they have sheep you can look at from the house). Property was clean, well maintained and we felt like we were well taken care of. Short 20min drive into Paso Robles or Atascadero. Would highly recommend staying here.

Olive Ranch & Vineyard make a perfect setting for weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the ranch. Kids had so much fun watching the sheep dog chasing the sheep and it was hilarious when the dog got chased by the herd of sheep :)

Don't miss the olive oil tasting room, informative and a lot of fun. So many vineyards with wine tasting nearby. BBQ and drinks in the sunken patio was a great way to end a lovely weekend. Thanks Marti!
