Susan purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1999
Why Susan chose Cayucos
We moved to Cayucos in 1976 and then discovered the Magetti Ranch on Cottontail Creek Rd. We raised our children in our 1886 home and still live here today. When the ranch up the road, Cottontail Creek Ranch, went on the market we wanted to expand agriculturally and it happened to come with a big unusual home on the property. The rest is history. This ranch is unbelievable ....
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
The ranch is located out of the way and yet so close to everything that the Central Coast has to offer. Just 14 minutes from the beach and 15 minutes the opposite direction to the beginning of the Paso Wine Country. Cayucos is old town at its best. 6 star restaurant and 5 star too. Enjoy a day at Hearst Castle and come home to your private ranch ....

When arriving at the property there was so much to see. The house was fabulous and fully equipped with everything we needed for necessity to fun activities to keep us occupied during our breaks. The bedrooms were all comfortable and the simple touch of carefully selected Christmas decorations made it feel like home. It rained for a couple of days and the sound throughout the house was glorious... Waking up each morning you could see the cattle grazing on the hillside and listening to the moo's back and forth was fascinating. We will definitely come here again hopefully in the spring so we can experience the blooms and other parts of nature.
Thank you for being fabulous guests.
Glad the the ranch and house were everything you had hoped for.
Next time green hills, creeks running, tennis and swimming!!
Merry Christmas to your lovely group
Fantastic location and wonderful host
The description of the property is spot on. However, Susan's warm generous spirit sets this property apart from all others that we have rented. We would highly recommend the CTC Ranch and commend the Cayucos Land Conservency. If it were not for work, we would return in a heart beat.
Short list of the highlights: 12-15 person fire pit for smores' and more, using a "Santa Maria" type grill for the first time and the food tasted fantastic using oak wood, hiking to the fishing pond and watch the kids' excitement of catch and releasing fish with help from a neighbor, late afternoon on the veranda and listening to the cows, feeding chickens and last but not least..the swimming pool. Another insight....the kids did not pick up an ipad for most of the time and played outdoors.
Guests like the Moris make it all worth having people in our home.
The pleasure was mine hosting them and hope they return very soon.
It was great to see the family making use of this special place.
Until next time
Family Vacation at Cottontail Creek Ranch
Our whole family from the grandparents to the grand kids had a great time. There was something to do for everyone - from swimming, hot tubing, hiking, games, movies, tennis to boccie ball! It is only a short distance from the ranch to Hearst's Castle, Piedras Blancas and Cambria. Susan is a wonderful host and her thoughtful added touches made the whole experience wonderful!!
Great family and guests. I hope to see you all back at the ranch soon.
Fun, beautiful place, very accommodating
Nice owner whose home was very clean and beautiful
Absolutely beautiful house and property!
We couldn't have been more pleased. A perfect getaway for our group.
Hope you will return soon
Fabulous Place for Family Vacation!
First of all, Susan was a wonderful host, she always answered my emails and phone calls within minutes. She was able to accommodate all of my requests and went out of her way to take care of all of our needs.
The house is absolutely gorgeous, very well-maintained. You can tell that Susan loves this house and all the property around it. We were met in the kitchen with a huge bowl of freshly-picked oranges and avocados! There are various little ornaments and trinkets around the estate, done tastefully, showing a true love for the place. Everything was very clean, and we did not find any disrepair on the 850 acres. We enjoyed talking to Susan and reading various articles about the ranch and Chopper. Such a fantastic story!
What we loved most was that for our family of 18 never had to leave, except to buy food. There were so many things to do at Cottontail Creek Ranch. We enjoyed the Bocce ball, horseshoes, two jacuzzies, swimming pool, endless walking/running trails (some are NOT for the faint of heart!), ping pong, board games, gorgeous fire pit, an enormous kitchen that’s large enough to accommodate several “chefs”, lounge chairs on the patios to sit outside at night and enjoy the zillions of stars. It was such a relaxing place, so quiet, so lovely.
Susan offered to take us in her truck to the “ridge” where she described the hills around the property and told stories of the land, her family, the history, the conservancy. It was so interesting, and such a wild ride! Breathtaking views to the ocean, Cambria, Morrow Bay. Well-worth the experience.
All in all, I heartily recommend the Cottontail Creek Ranch for an event for a large number of people. You will be so impressed with the serenity and peacefulness that will surround you.
