Our group of 5 couples had an amazing time at Horsetail Ranch. Kena was super helpful during the booking process and shared a bunch of different restaurant and winery recommendations. The property was promptly ready for us at time of check in and had a bunch of different outdoor games that our group enjoyed. The views from the back patio area are stunning and we enjoyed cooking dinner outdoors and watching the sunset every night! I would highly recommend this place and would definitely visit again.

Our family stayed for two weeks at Horsetail Ranch. It was perfectly appointed with everything you would need for a comfortable stay - comfortable beds, high thread count linens, plenty of bath towels and towels for the spa. The home is spacious and super comfortable. The property is beautiful with plenty of room on the 150 acres to walk and hike on the property and the views in every direction are gorgeous. The house was spotless when we checked-in. No detail was left unattended. The owner was responsive and very friendly. We would love to visit again soon!

We were so completely blown away by the beauty and tranquility that Horse Tail Ranch offered to us. We were 12 people for a family reunion - there were enough beds and plenty of space to hang - cook and eat in luxury. WE played outside - around the fire and in the jacuzzi. WE just loved being outside night and day and everyone found their little corner to read and relax.

This place was perfect for our family event. It had spacious accommodation for all 19 of us. The kitchen had everything you need to cook large meals which could be served indoors or outdoors. The bedrooms were all decorated beautifully and the beds were very comfortable. This villa had plenty of parking. Our party including all ages and everyone had plenty to do and see, including hikes on the property, visiting wineries and coastal towns or just sitting in the hot tub and watching the sunset. Beautiful place. We will visit again.

This property is absolutely stunning with spacious acres of rolling hills, a pond and dock at the bottom of the hill, and a beautiful outdoor patio with a hot tub! We celebrated our Mother's/Grandmother's 80th birthday here and it was magical! There was plenty of space for everyone in the family to stay as well as a nice kitchen and living room area! We loved our stay at this beautiful home & would love to come back again!

This place has it all!! This past weekend's weather was equally matched by the beautiful surroundings and amenities that Horsetail Ranch has to offer; five bedrooms, full kitchen, lake, peace and quiet (to a mom this is everything!!). The Villa could not have been more perfect. Maybe it was the fire pit, the company (my besties) or the star-filled sky. The Rose during the day was nice too. Taking walks every morning to the Lake is a must. Lots of local wineries nearby and local shops and restaurants were all great too! Highly recommend this place to anyone that needs that much needed break or just a quick getaway. I am already married, but if I wasn't this would be a top contender. Maybe I'll bring my husband next time for our anniversary and renew our wedding vows. :)

My fiance and I wanted the venue to be our wedding. We didn't want over-the-top decor, or ornate art and tapestries. We wanted the location to speak for itself. We selected HorseTail Ranch for that very reason, and it delivered in every regard. The property is an incredible representation of the central California coast. When you are there, you know exactly where in the world this glorious piece of land rests. The views are stunning, the house itself gorgeous and so well maintained it's hard to imagine everything is not brand new. When it comes to hosting our wedding, the owner was amazing to work with, the onsite staff more helpful than we ever could have hoped for, and (again) the sights, sounds, and ambiance of the entire place is what made our wedding so special. We could not imagine our perfect day being held anywhere else.

I visited the ranch during a friends wedding. I was extremely impressed by the awesome landscape and the overall location. The house was very nice and well decorated. That experience was Great and I hope to return back for another event. My family and I are talking about maybe renting the ranch for a family get together next summer.

HorseTail Ranch offers everything you could want in a country escape ... - Beautiful, serene location - Large, well-kept, extremely clean home - 5 oversize bedrooms (3 with ensuites) - Well-equipped kitchen, large pantry, wine fridge, beer fridge ... the list is long :) - Laundry (with detergent!) - Beautiful outdoor space with BBQ, firepit and spa - Responsive, helpful hosts happy to assist with ancillary arrangements and answer any questions - Crystal and Brian are the fantastic, friendly on-site managers who are there for you if you need, respectful of your privacy if you don't - C & B also offer great horse riding options for all skill levels (Central Coast Trail Rides) ... and they have a menagerie of pets and farm animals for the kids to feed :) Our family Thanksgiving was fun, relaxing and indulgent thanks to all involved in HorseTail Ranch. We will definitely be returning with other friends. If you are considering the Creston / Paso Robles region for a few days R&R, you should definitely have this place on your list.

From the moment she said yes, we knew that we wanted an intimate, fun, outdoor wedding where we could have our best friends and family relax together for a weekend. We didn’t want to be limited to the standard 4-10 PM window (or midnight if you’re lucky!). That’s how we found Horsetail Ranch and that’s why we drove down to see it. We’d never set out to find the most beautiful wedding venue in California, but when we got to the property it took our breath away. The house, the cabin, the hills, the oaks, the views, the hawks overhead. So classically California, rustic but modern, quiet and peaceful but very alive. We had more venues we had to see that weekend but we looked half-heartedly; we knew the other places didn’t stand a chance. Once we picked a date and signed our contract, the owner Kena helpfully laid out all of the services we’d need to arrange (porta potties, insurance, day-of planner, etc) with recommendations and was really responsive and understanding as she helped with all of our many questions and concerns all the way up to the day of the wedding. Though she has some preferred providers, we weren’t boxed in and were able to choose the vendors we wanted and go DIY where we could. She was also really generous with site visits as our plans got more concrete, and flexible in accommodating our ideas. Brian, the caretaker who lives on the property with his family, was a real pleasure to work with. He loves the land and the houses and he takes great joy in sharing it with guests. Any time we had an idea or a problem to solve, he knew immediately how to make it work and seemed to genuinely enjoy being involved in putting together a memorable ceremony and reception. We had a barbecue for our guests on the evening before the wedding and I will never forget Brian driving back and forth between the Cabin and his house as he thought of fun new games for us to play with. The main house is stunning. It has a huge, two-story main room with a well-stocked large kitchen, dining room, and living room. There are also five bedrooms, three with their own bathrooms, so your guests will have plenty of privacy when it’s time to get away from the party. The Cabin is less private but sleeps quite a few and is a really cool space to stash your groomsmen. It has unique views and a great covered area for hanging out. We had our night-before-the-wedding barbecue there because it’s a great space in its own right and also kept the ceremony/reception area at the Villa a surprise. Our goal was always to have a wedding our guests would remember as relaxing and fun. Horsetail Ranch was the perfect place for that. Our friends and family got to know each other over a long weekend; we played lawn games and barbecued; we stayed up late after the dancing was over, laughing in the hot tub under the stars. The look on our guests’ faces as one after another they told us they’d never been to a more beautiful venue was just a nice bonus.
