Property Description

Nature is calling. This charming 2000 square foot home sits on 160 acres east of Santa Margarita on a private gated ranch. The home is located in a valley and is surrounded by large rock formations, hills, oaks, and pines; lovely views from every window. There are several (hilly) hiking/riding trails, and a seasonal creek runs through the property. There is a horse corral and hitching posts if you would like to bring your horses. For a number of reasons this is not an appropriate site for a wedding.

The post and beam construction and custom woodwork throughout the home are breath taking. There are 2 master suites (each with a full bath) and a sleeping loft. A second loft overlooking the living room has a desk where you may set up your laptop and use the free WiFi. There is no cell service but a land line is available for your use. The vaulted ceiling living room has a gorgeous stone wood burning fireplace. The covered front porch is a great place to relax and watch the local wildlife (pretty much every critter that lives in this county could wander by) or to enjoy a glass of wine. You will enjoy cooking in the fully equipped kitchen and having your meals at the kitchen table where you can take in the lovely views. The laundry area is equipped with a utility sink, washer and dryer. Additional creature comforts: central air conditioning, AppleTV, DVD player, jetted tub. While the location is a little remote, there is a boutique winery Soaring Hawk (weekends by reservation) at the adjoining property, and it is only half an hour from many great places, San Luis Obispo, Paso Robles, Templeton, Avila Beach, and Morro Bay. The home is about 6 miles from the little town of Santa Margarita, right off the 101 freeway north of the Cuesta Grade from San Luis Obispo. It has a gourmet restaurant, The Range, Ancient Peaks winery, ziplining, Dunbar brewery, Porch Cafe, Home Santa Margarita (features Joanna Gaines furnishings) and a few other spots for you to discover. If just want to "chill" that works too!

Super quiet, rustic retreat among the trees

Great "hideaway" near Santa Margarita where you can go "off grid" and enjoy the great outdoors on the trails that take you around the large property....and maybe glimpse wildlife. Very spacious and clean home. Highly Recommend

Calm, rustic, retreat

We came to celebrate Cal Poly Family weekend with our daughter. While Whisper Valley wasn't all that close to campus, it wasn't the worst drive ever. The morning we left we saw: a tarantula, bobcat, bald eagle (my first ever!), skunk, wild turkey, and a ton of ground squirrels. The house is large, despite only having 2 bedrooms and a loft. If you h... Read More

Fantastic stay, total privacy

We absolutely loved staying at this beautiful home. It has a lovely antler chandelier. The master bedroom and bathroom are huge. The loft bedroom is actually inside the 2nd bedroom on the main floor, a little less privacy there. Perfect for the kids. The home has beautiful custom wood trim. We loved the cicada bugs singing to us each night. We actu... Read More

A heavenly retreat just inland from the Central California coast

Our family had a most enjoyable stay at this rustic getaway hidden amid a California oak forest. Although utterly quiet and peaceful with abundant wildlife, the property is only twenty minutes from Highway 101. The house, complete with all amenities, is beautifully constructed with lots of exposed wooden beams and redwood highlights. A memorable ex... Read More

You want secluded? This is it! You want to see wildlife and birds. Yep. We loved the big porch out front. During our stay it got quite hot (107) but most times it was nice out there and you can have dinner on the porch. Amenities. The MBR is very nice. Comfy bed too. If you are a foodie the kitchen is adequate but not stellar. There is enough equip... Read More
