Our home is surrounded by multiple patios and edible landscaped gardens.

You and yours will enjoy private country life yet close to everything the central coast has to offer. The owners share their new 20 yd. lap pool/ spa/ kids step with their guests. The home is in the midst of a spectacular 850 acre working ranch with seasonal creeks and rolling hills. You will need nothing but your food and clothes. Chefs are available by advance reservation.

Cottontail Creek Ranch is the best location to experience Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo, Cayucos, Cambria and Morro Bay.

Within a scenic 12 minutes to the beach and 15 minute drive is the premier Paso Robles wine region, the quaint beach/surf town of Cayucos and Morro Bay. A beautiful 30 minute drive to the fabulous downtowns of San Luis Obispo, Paso Robles and Cambria. Visit famous Hearst Castle or Big Sur up scenic Highway One and return to your own private paradise. Whether you feel like being active, or simply just relaxing, Cottontail Creek Ranch is your paradise found.

Ranch philosophy is to share this great place with others and build appreciation for ranching and the land.

Cottontail Creek Ranch is getting greener. We just installed 2 new solar systems for generating electricity and hope we can make our foot print a little smaller.

We make it easy for our guests to recycle and compost to make a difference as well.

Your home away from home is all about attention to detail.

Guest suites/rooms are private, featuring king to queen-size beds with private bathrooms. Luscious sheets and fabulous beds and pillows. Whether from the spa, fire pit or you bedroom enjoy phenomenal views of our private valley and hillsides .
