Wonderful to find old California in your own backyard. It is fun to imagine living here with horses and other animals back in the old days. Think about how the music must have sounded from the old veranda? How much fun to play up in...More

I love to hear the old stories, hear the history and see the architecture. This place has a lot of history for the area and it's a great place for a wedding venue. Check out the hand hewn beams in the stable area. Very cool.

The Adobe has come back to life with beautiful restorations and family events - also weddings! Their buildings are fixed up - 28 years ago the only restoration was the chapel. GREAT new landscaping shows what grows well in our drought.

A great place to visit to get the feeling of what hacienda life was like in the 19th century. The courtyard garden is beautiful and the rooms have enough furniture and fixtures to bring the place to life. This is a county park and exceeds...More
