The Main Ranch House
"Breathtaking and Spectacular!"
The centerpiece of the Ranch is the Main Ranch House, with four bedrooms, three baths, a sleeping loft, a greatroom that includes a wood burning fireplace, full dining area, display kitchen, deck access and downstairs, our “theatre” – legacy to the Lobitos Creek Ranch days as a post-production facility for filmmakers. The great room combines conversation areas, cozy fire seating, dining and our eat-in kitchen, configurable for large groups as well as smaller ones.
Including the loft, we sleep 6-8 people. Two en suite “masters” have private baths, one with private deck access and an outdoor shower and the other upstairs, with treetop views of the property. Two guest rooms open off the great room, one with a queen and the other with a double. Both have closets galore and share a bath just steps away. Last is our loft above the theatre – think of a tree house, with steps vs. branches to reach this cozy extra private sleeping space.
Amenities include an HD theatre with a big screen TV, an expansive deck with outdoor dining overlooking our orchard of fruit trees, our vegetable garden and miles of coastal rolling hills. Just off the deck is a fire pit for evenings ‘round the campfire, a hot tub, an outdoor mattress pad for stargazing, and picnic tables on the lawn.
For conferences or retreats we have an attached business center in the main house with desk space for five simultaneously workstations. Wi-Fi connectivity is available throughout the Ranch and comes by way of a solar powered microwave repeater that delivers broadband data rates for videoconferences and streaming. Our cell coverage can be spotty; strong in some places and sometimes unavailable in others. We don’t think that’s a liability. In fact, we think a retreat from technology only adds to and enhances the beauty of our surroundings and the sounds our abundant fauna and flora.
Private parking is just across our sizable lawn area and all throughout the year we have native flowers including daisies, daffodils, naked ladies, iris, edible nasturtium and of course the iconic California State Flower, the Poppy, with its delicate orange petals. We don’t cut down milkweed plants anymore that we know attracts the endangered Monarch butterfly. We always love seeing their exquisite and intricate orange and black design.
