Local Guide

Cottontail Creek Ranch invites you to experience the wide open spaces of the Central Coast and our early California heritage. At the ranch, you can hike to the ridgetop and rejuvenate with an ocean-view sunset overlooking the entire Estero Bay, or kayak and fish at our private pond. Within a scenic 15 minute drive, is the premier Paso Robles wine region and the quaint beach/surf town of Cayucos. Visit famous Hearst Castle or Big Sur up Highway One and return to your own private paradise. Whether you feel like being active, or simply just relaxing, Cottontail Creek Ranch is your paradise found. Below are only a few of our favorite things to do within a short drive from the ranch or even on our 850 acre private property. Take a day trip and do the self-guided Roger “Chopper” Lyon Land Conservation Legacy Tour.
