Description of the Cayucos vacation home rental
Cottontail Creek Ranch is a destination in itself. Beautiful luxury home with all the amenities including a 60 foot lap pool with spa and kids step. Add the Tennis Court and there is Something for everybody! The rolling Hills and private valley are beyond comparison. Whether you wander around or sit on one of the patios and just soak it in.. Close to the beach and wine tasting.
The Ranch house has it all. 8 bedroom, 6 baths, lofts and game room. Decks rap and ramble all around it, taking in the views of the private valley and the surrounding hillsides.
Comfort is what is all about. Big groups or small you won't want to leave. Fully equipped kitchen with a 5 burner gas cook top and extra large double electric ovens. Fabulous linens and towels provided for that perfect sleep. Out door Oak Bbq(wood included) for the best bbqing you will ever do.
Hens willing, there will be fresh eggs in the refrigerator. Freshly picked lemons, limes, avocados and oranges (if they are still hanging on the trees) will be in the fruit bowl. Fresh herbs out the kitchen door.
And if your timing is right vegetables in the garden.
There is also a fabulous hand crafted fire pit to gather around under the stars ...and have s'mores or just visit.
You will be amazed at the bird watching whether from the decks or the ridge top. Golden Eagles nest above the house.
It is a beautiful 1 mile walk to the fishing pond where the kayaks will be waiting for you.
Family and friend gatherings and retreats of all kinds seem to be our niche. Just over the hill is premier wine tasting. Just down the road beautiful Estero Bay, up the coast Hearst Castle and further on Big Sur.

Perfect for Large Family

November 1, 2016

We recently enjoyed a long weekend at Cottontail Creek Ranch with our large family. The ranch is absolutely breathtaking and feels very isolated, even though it is only a short drive to nearby towns. Sadly for us, it rained (extremely unusual for this time of year) and we were unable to use many of the outdoor facilities or go too far from the house, but we made the best of it. The house was spacious and we enjoyed the well equipped kitchen with spectacular views. The upstairs lounge with a fireplace was also a favorite spot for us to gather. We did make great use of the outdoor fire pit for roasting marshmallows and the hot tub on the upper deck. Susan was wonderful to deal with prior to our visit and was very welcoming on our arrival. She took some of us for a drive up to the top of the mountain to enjoy the breathtaking views to the ocean. Susan was always on hand if we needed her throughout our stay. Miriam and Jose at the ranch were also amazing and helped make our stay very special. The little ones enjoyed feeding the baby cows and seeing the chickens. All of our guests had a wonderful time and we would love to visit again in sunny weather. Highly recommended!

We had our ladies retreat here. It was absolutely indescribable. The Lyons are the ultimate host and hostess leaving eggs, oranges, avocados, fresh vegetables, fresh flowers in each room, and giving us a tour of the ranch. We hope to return; we did not have enough time to explore all the property had to offer. Definitely a place we want to return to again and again.

Fantastic experience
May 2011

Seven couples held a Tuscan cooking school reunion at the Ranch and the facilities were just great. We cooked for three days and wine tasted at several close by outstanding wineries such as Villa Creek, Denner, RN Estate, McPrice Myers, Clayhouse and Turley. Susan was so helpful and even joined us for one of our Tuscan dinners. We even had a Bocce Ball tournament. All seven couples loved the luxury accommodations. We would do it again at the Ranch anytime.

Amazing Multi-Family Vacation
Stayed in August 2010

Cottontail Creek Ranch was the perfect spot to enjoy quality time in the beautiful outdoors with our friends and family. Six adults, two teenagers, and nine children easily and harmoniously fit into the spacious ranch house. We enjoyed hiking, fishing, kayaking, swimming, surfing -- even ping pong! Highlights of our stay included making fresh squeezed orange juice every morning, and having smores around our own campfire every night after dinner.

Indescribable Hospitality!!!
Stay in August 2010

We stayed with 2 other families in this wonderful house. The setting is breathtaking and the house is perfect for several families or a big extended family. Not only are the physical aspects of the location perfect, but the hospitality and warmth that Roger and Susan provide make this a one of a kind vacation spot. We felt instantly at home with welcome we received from the Lyons. I can't recommend Cottontail Creek Ranch highly enough.

Stunning weekend at Cottontail Creek Ranch
Stay in October 2010

We took 6 adults and 8 kids to Cottontail Creek and had a wonderful family vacation. The location of the property is simply stunning with magical views across the valley and to the hills beyond. We loved the magnificent kitchen and dining area, the large pool was perfect for kids and adults,and the firepit was superb for smores. Picking oranges and making fresh juice was a highlight but the kids favorite was the truck ride with Susan and Roger ending with a ride on Pumpkin the nanny of the herd. Susan and Roger are perfect hosts and have created a memorable treat for all to enjoy. We'll be back !

Vacation Rental by Owner Bear stayed here - 04/24/2009

When my bear family and I arrived at the Cottontail Creek Ranch, we instantly felt at home! This luxury ranch retreat is nestled among some of California's most breathtaking rolling hills. The location beckons you to enjoy the outdoors and everything the Central Coast has to offer. Whether you like to hike, fish, horseback ride, surf, or just simply hang out and enjoy some of the most awe inspiring views this home has to offer, this is the place for you! Our gracious hosts, Roger and Susan, made our arrival special in so many ways. From the beautiful fresh cut flowers in every bedroom to the delicious fresh fruit picked right from the ranch orchards to the awesome homemade cookies, no detail was overlooked. They took us on a tour of their 850 acre working ranch and we marveled at the incredible view overlooking the Estero Bay. The fresh air carried the fabulous scent of their orange orchards and flowers blossoming throughout the property. Plus, we were free to eat anything that was ripe and ready for picking on the grounds. We enjoyed lemons, oranges, avocados and fresh herbs. It was simply amazing! The fabulous surroundings, wide open spaces and views truly recharged our spirits. The home itself rivaled the ranch's outside surroundings. From the historical Monterey pine floors to the custom woodwork, this home really showcased the owners' personality and artistic flair. Susan's whimsical artwork and Roger's intricate woodwork throughout the home exuded warmth. They truly put their hearts and hands into making sure that we felt right at home. Cottontail Creek Ranch featured 5 luxurious bedrooms, each with their own personal baths. Everyone had their own personal space to retreat to and relax. The home's floor plan was perfect for togetherness and included great family gathering spots like a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, spacious dining room as well as the large living room with its massive rock fireplace. Every room had an incredible view to enjoy. We spent evenings around the great fire pit or soaking in the steaming spa reminiscing about the day's adventures. It was the perfect home for a reunion or celebration! If you must venture away from this private paradise, Cottontail Creek Ranch is in close proximity to the vineyards of Paso Robles, fabulous seafood in Morro Bay, and the quaint coastal town of Cayucos. It's also a convenient home base to launch an excursion up the coast to visit Hearst Castle or explore the craggy coast of Big Sur. We have not stopped talking about our visit to the California Central Coast and the Cottontail Creek Ranch.
Thanks Roger and Susan for a great stay!
