About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6 People MAX) Please NO Exceptions!

6 People MAX PLEASE! No Exceptions!


Children over 10 are preferred at the ranch. Not a house for toddlers!

The Red Feather Ranch is where you'll find our old farm house. She sets upon a hill, is surrounded by mature trees and centrally located with immediate easy access to Highway 101 and 156, and only moments to the beach.

The ranch is secure, fenced and gated.

Well mannered dogs welcome with owners approval.

Very clean and comfortable, well appointed kitchen, all that you need for a superb vacation. Enjoy listening to the hummingbirds, red tail hawks and blue jays while taking in the Fremont Peak views from your private back porch. Pick fresh veggies and fruit from your own garden box, when in season.

Relax around the outside fire pit or inside near 'Old Faithful', a very competent wood burning stove (the farm houses only main, but reliable source of heat). Also an EdenPure heater is available for your use.

The property houses a few really nice and cool chickens. All colors and flavors of hens and a couple of roosters.

There is also a dog, a cat and one horse that live here. Please do not allow children to chase the animals that live here.

Ride your horse, mountain bike or jog from the property to spectacular Manzanita park where there is 100's of acres to explore. It's heavenly! The park sports magnificent ocean and valley views. A baseball diamond is also present on the grounds.

About Tisha Warren

To own property in the Monterey Bay has been a long time dream for us both. Don't ever give up on those dreams, they will come true. Ours did!

Tisha Warren purchased this farmhouse in 2009

Why Tisha Warren chose Central Coast California

Location, location, location and the views are incredible. We absolutely love this area of the fabulous Monterey Bay. Did I mention the location?

This is Paradise!

What makes this farmhouse unique

The Red Feather Ranch has great views of the surrounding mountains and peaks of the lovely Monterey Bay and San Benito counties. The sunrise and sunsets are some of the most beautiful we've seen. The peace and quiet of the property is just amazing.

There is public transporttion just minutes from the ranch with easy access.

Quiet little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at the ranch with our 2 young girls and our 2 mothers. The 3 bedrooms plus 1 full bath upstairs (and 1 full bath downstairs) worked out perfectly for the six of us. After a day of visiting Carmel or Monterey/Cannery Row, we'd head back to the ranch, take evening walks in the neighorhood and spend quiet evenings relaxing indoors. We started off our mornings with breakfast, taking a walk on the property where the kids would forever play catch with the ever-active Wyatt, feed sweet gentle Lucy some carrots, or just watch/hear Eddie the rooster crow and the hens roam the property. Considering we were on a ranch, I was very impressed with how clean the inside of the house was; the kitchen was spacious and had lots of pots and pans, fully stocked. We'd love to come back one day. My mom enjoyed it so much she thanked me again for taking her and told me how much she enjoyed the ranch. Tisha and Linda were so nice and helpful. We were sad to leave but we had to get back to reality... and also discovered we left our wedding band at the ranch! Tisha found it and mailed it to us! We are so grateful for our time there and for the ring! Our girls have great memories of this trip!

Loved our stay here, so much fun with all the animals, I wish we could of stayed longer.

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place. Bring carrots for Lucy the horse! Get ready to throw the ball for Wyatt the dog. If you love animals this is the place to stay!! Cats and chickens too!. I wish we could of stayed another couple days to see more coast and around town sights. And to spend more down time with the animals. I would recommend this house to any family. Lots of room with two good sized beds and two twins everyone has their own space. And love the fully stocked kitchen! the owners were so nice and hospitable. I will defiantly come again if we find ourselves in that area again. :) Thank you so much!!!

Quite simply...... relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family just spent the weekend at Tisha's place at red frather ranch. The place is about 15 to 20 minutes away from Monterey and 30 minutes from Santa Cruz. We spent our saturday at the aquarium (which not to mention was amazing)and afterwards had a bite to eat and got back to her place in 20 minutes. Probably one of the most relaxing evenings we have spent in a long time. The pictures on the web do not do it justice. The place is Spacey. Easily accommodates 6 people. it has satellite TV, comfortable furniture and a kitchen that doesn't lack anything. ☆☆☆☆☆

Truly Wonderful !!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first experience with Home Away and I was blown away . There were so many special touches <3 Fresh Flowers in multiple rooms . Beautiful décor. The beds and pillows were so so comfortable . If I had forgotten anything she had it covered :-D We ran out of coffee and the next day we found a fresh new can on the back porch . We took our coffee onto that porch every morning and the view was incredible . I don't know if I just got incredibly lucky with my first experience with Home Away but I am looking forward to trying it again next time I travel . And if I am lucky enough to make it back to Monterey I can only hope that the Red Feather Ranch is available :)))))) Thank you again for such a wonderful experience and for so many Great Memories
