Do you want to feel like a very welcome guest in a beautiful setting? I could not have felt more special than I did for the three days and nights I spent at Highland Ranch. The food was great, the climate perfect, at about one thousand feet above sea level it is spared the Pacific fogs of northern California but benefits from the cooling breezes off the ocean. The trails on and around the ranch are well maintained and the wranglers are well trained, friendly and knowledgeable.
If you are looking for a quiet low key place to escape Highland Ranch is worth a visit. I hope to return again soon.
Our German Shepherd Dog loved swimming in the many ponds on and around the ranch. To our surprise she interacted well with all the horses she encountered.
