About Lobitos Creek Ranch

Working Ranch and Retreat

Built about 40 years ago for a young, growing family, the Ranch has been lovingly refreshed to provide a retreat for guests ranging from couples to families and from private, non-profit organizations to corporate groups. While you’ll feel worlds away, we’re only 40 minutes from SFO and 15 minutes from charming Half Moon Bay with its many restaurants and shops – not to mention within an hour of top Northern California destinations from San Francisco to Silicon Valley to Santa Cruz.

A 10-minute drive up a paved and winding road brings you to our secluded getaway on a ridge above the Pacific Ocean, punctuated by ancient Redwoods. Walk out our doors to experience the Redwoods or drive 10 minutes to pristine beaches. The hiking trails on our property and custom-guided horseback rides provide centerpieces for family vacations, corporate retreats, and even weddings. Our guests often provide their own meals, but we can arrange a private chef.

Animal and Kid Friendly

Your children are welcome, with the caveat that supervision is key, since this is a working ranch. We are dog and pet friendly but your pets need to be on a leash, and prevented from disturbing our cattle and horses.
