We transitioned to the coast from Silicon Valley. The tranquility and beauty of the California coast is a wonderful contrast to the hustle and bustle the the valley. We enjoy road travel and have completed several cross-country road trips throughout the US.
We will welcome u-pick of our olallieberries during berry season (a California coast specialty that is in season from the end of June to the beginning of August).
We have a bull mastiff/pit bull mix named Roscoe. He is very friendly and enjoys visitors whether 2 legged or 4!
Our favorite road trip took us up to Bellingham WA to get on the Alaska ferry. We disembarked at Skagway, Alaska and drove up towards the arctic circle in the Yukon. We pulled over in many locations as we crossed Canada and returned through Glacier National Park.
Pescadero is a small community (pop. of about 650) in an agricultural area. The town is located on a portion of the original stage coach line (our address is on Stage Rd) and has a rich history. Two miles from the beach to the west and a few miles from the redwoods to the east.
I really appreciate the host letting me stay on their property for the night. They have a beautiful Farm. It was so peaceful and quiet, all I could hear was the wind. Thank you again for letting me stay.
We just enjoyed two fantastic nights at Rancho Oso Reble. The hosts were gracious and welcoming. Their berry picking farm is charming, peaceful and private. Even though you can simply stroll to the Pescadero shops you feel safe and secluded on their farm. It’s a great base from which to explore the local area which has fantastic beaches, hiking trails and easy access to Half Moon Bay and the San Mateo coastal parks. We also brought our dog along who enjoyed meeting Roscoe, the four legged farm manager. They enjoyed the freedom of fenced acres to roam. We’ll be back for sure.
We enjoyed our stay at Rancho Oso Roble. The hosts were warm and friendly. They provided great recommendations, and downtown Pescadero is only a 10 minute walk! We stayed in a hay field with our porch facing the property line of trees and wildlife. The kids loved finding a weekend fort in the trees where they counted quail. We missed the berry harvest, but the vines made for picturesque scenes up against the foggy hill tops in the background.
Roscoe is the hosts’ dog who is a very sweet older gentleman. He got along with my two black labs well.
Pescadero businesses are typically open from 11 am - 4 pm. We missed seeing most businesses because we are up and out early, but it looks like a lot of cute shopping. There is also an independent coffee shop, a restaurant, and an independent gas station. We LOVED the Mexican food in the gas station, and they had cute seating outside in the back.
Our first Boondocker's Welcoma and really ideal. Utterly peaceful, quiet, the sound of scrubjays and California quail... The delightful hosts greeted us with berries from their farm, mmmm.... yum! And gave us useful tips about the small town. We were also greeted by their old sweet dog. Our dogs were so tuckered out from traveling that they didn't meet him, but I am sure that even our nervous dog would have been fine with him. The field we camped in was flat and level. When we left, I marveled at the generosity of the people who make boondockers welcome work so well -- thank you! We will definitely be back one day!
This place is the best kept secret in California. Upon our arrival we were greeted by our host with a huge welcome, beautiful smiling face and a lovely treat of fresh, organic Olallaberries straight off their farm. Our dog was ecstatic to be able to run and play all over the enormous property with their dog. We relaxed watching them knowing the entire place was securely fenced and our eight month old Labrador couldn’t run off and get lost.
Definitely would love to stay here again sometime soon. The entire area was breathtaking and we fell in love with Historic Pescadero.
The hosts were so kind and friendly and the place was beautiful! We spent a wonderfully quiet foggy night there, and enjoyed every minute!
