    About this property

    6 Acre Ranch w 5 Casitas+pool/hot Tub - 30 min to Julian

    ★Get the Julian feel w/out the Julian prices!★ Escape to a 6-acre, 1940's country ranch retreat under giant oak trees w/5 adobe casita suites, lodge & mountain views in Warner Springs. Cool off in the pool or star gaze from the hot tub while sipping your favorite beverage. This dark sky community is a perfect getaway from city life & is located just 30 minutes from Julian & Anza Borrego State Park. It’s a great place to hike, mountain bike, horse camp or off-road w/access to trails & the PCT. Built w/ handmade adobe bricks, Ranchita Margharita was designed for large gatherings, but can easily accommodate smaller groups. It is a great place for events, reunions, retreats & camps & even had movie stars like Jimmy Stewart stay in the 40’s. Guests have access to: ★The entire casitas building: 5 casita rooms w/private entrance Attached bathroom/shower Fireplace Ceiling fan & space heater 4 rooms are bunk style with either queen or twin bunks There is no central heat or A/C, but guests have never found this to be an issue due to large oak trees & adobe walls. It does get cold in the winter. . ★A 1500 sqft lodge with: Full kitchen Dining room/living room w/stunning sunset views Double-sided stone fireplace Outdoor deck overlooking duck pond TV w/ Netflix DVD player ★Pool & Hot Tub (not fenced) ★Wifi & excellent cell service ★Farm animals: donkeys, goats, pigs, horses, chickens, sheep, & cows. ★Direct access to trails & 2 miles from the Pacific Crest Trail (ride/hike to Eagle Rock). ★Horse amenities: 8 12x12 stalls Round pen Water buckets Water access ★24/7 onsite caretaker ★Top notch hospitality from host (when on property) & caretaker. “Dave was the most hospitable host. It’s a quiet, dark-sky community. The lodge area is also great to hang. Would definitely book again!” Ranchita is considered a more rural setting. It may not be a fancy resort, but is extremely quaint and relaxing. “If you want to stay at the Hilton, this isn't your place, but if you like the country and exceptional hospitality, this is it. Highly recommend to help unwind from city life.” Bring your own groceries to make meals in our fully functional kitchen or drive to restaurants 10-30 minutes away. If you’re needing a unique place to horse camp or host an event, family gathering, retreat, camp or even a wedding, Ranchita is it!

      We will be back!!

      We had such a blast ! There was something for everyone and the caretakers Jesus and Graciela made us feel welcomed and at home . Thank you for everything !

      5/5 Excellent

        Great for big groups, or not!

        Host is very accommodating, Dave was very nice and available when he was there. He definitely likes to get to know all of his guests and shares stories and shares his cooking as well! We were a group of 14 adults and 8 children and everyone enjoyed themselves in the big space we had for barbecuing, along with all the friendly animals, pool and hot tub. We were able to use the 6 rooms in the property and not just 5 like it says in the listing and the confirmation. Only suggestion I have is maybe investing a bit more time in the spider control in all of the rooms. Almost all rooms had big sized spiders all around corners or on the ceiling, we all completely understood it's a ranch and that's common but there are products out there to deter them. Linen was clean, bedding was clean as long as nothing touched any walls (spiders). Nonetheless this was not a reason to ruin our stay and we would love to come back soon! Hopefully the bugs and spiders inside the rooms are more controlled or deterred and not clearly visible.

        5/5 Excellent

          Awesome Place

          Our stay was nothing short of amazing. Very peaceful and relaxing spot. Our family had a great time swimming, interacting with the farm animals, and enjoyed the outdoor environment. Dave was an awesome host and interacted wonderfully with all of us. His cooking was awesome as well. Overall great place to spend some relaxing time with your family.
