Worlds away but less than an hour to San Francisco or Silicon Valley, the Main Ranch House is cozy and comfortable yet private.

Perfect for family reunions and leadership offsite gatherings and retreats. Anchoring the great room, the dining room and gallery kitchen, designed for group dining of up to 14 individuals, is a working fireplace that heats this elegant rustic and modern home. En suite master and guest master bedrooms have private baths, while two bedrooms on the main floor share one bath. Downstairs, a theatre can be arranged for family movie nights, or for corporate media presentations, for board room-type discussions, think tanks and leadership training sessions. Outside, overlooking rolling hills and miles of hiking trails are stables, a fire pit, gardens, a hot tub, a sauna and a sweeping deck with outdoor dining and lounging areas that view the orchards and pastures that surround our property. Within an hour of top Northern California destinations from San Francisco to Silicon Valley to Santa Cruz. There are hiking trails on the Ranch for visitors.

Great views, beautiful property

We had an amazing weekend here. The house and property are beautifully maintained and there are some great hikes nearby. There are horses and other farm animals on the property that our kids loved. Also, it's very close to half moon bay. If you're looking for a beautiful secluded weekend, this is definitely your spot.

5/5 Excellent

Howard Family reunion

I have previously submitted a review. Once more I will say that the Lobitos Creek Ranch is in a beautiful setting. Everyone enjoyed the facilities. Steve, the owner, was very accommodating and responsive to our needs. We would definitely love to come back.

5/5 Excellent

A perfect rustic retreat

Steve is a wonderful host and Lobitos Creek Ranch is a beautiful hidden gem. I am so glad I found it! It was the perfect setting for my girlfriends' weekend. Be sure to take the hike to the Hobbit Tree... you won't regret it.

5/5 Excellent

Idyllic

Gloriously rustic and remote. Friendly host, friendly horses, and a wandering feral cat named Ruby who is aloof, but friendly too. We had a wonderful time celebrating my wife's birthday, with a campfire, hot tub time, and a great kitchen for making group meals. Easy access to great hiking, and a nice deck if your speed is more relaxing and looking at great views.

5/5 Excellent
