PROPERTY Description

Chateau / Country House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10 max)

Custom built English Tudor style home located on a 400 acre ranch. This secluded ranch borders Cal Poly State University property and is situated 2.3 miles from Highway 1 on a part paved/ part all-weather gravel road. The house has 4 bedrooms and 3 baths and sleeps 8-10 with a king, 3 queens and 2 twin beds. It has hardwood floors and granite counter tops. The kitchen is fully equipped and has an adjoining sitting area where guests can relax on a couch, enjoy the expansive view and chat with the chef while he or she prepares meals. The library is stocked with an eclectic collection of books. The home has high speed satellite internet access and good cell phone reception. There are 2 HD flat screen TV's (the downstairs TV is 47') connected to a satellite dish which provides premium channel programming. Each TV has a DVD player with a selection of titles. The living room, with its mahogany paneling, leather couches and piano arrayed before a magnificent fireplace, is reminiscent of a British gentleman's club or hunting lodge. Outside, the patio and garden have ample seating with both a wood-burning Santa Maria style bbq and conventional propane grill for your outdoor cooking experience. During the wet months, the outdoor fire pit is ideal for roasting hotdogs, marshmellos or just sitting around the fire under the stars.

Mike Kirschner, one of the owners' sons, lives in the stable building located approximately 100 yards downhill from the main house and is available to answer questions or help guests with any problems that may arise during their stay.

Guests are encouraged to bring their hiking boots and binoculars. The ranch is surrounded by rural Cal Poly property with its extensive system of dirt roads on which one can literally bike or hike for miles. For a more adventuresome and secluded experience, guests are welcome to explore the ranch itself which is home to deer, turkeys, coyotes, raptors and other native animals and birds. Those energetic enough to hike to the top of the ridge above the house will be treated to a spectacular view of Cal Poly and San Luis Obispo in the valley below and the Pacific Ocean ten miles distant.

Whether you are visiting this area to sample its world-famous wines and restaurants, to explore its pristine coastline or simply to relax and unwind, you'll be glad you selected the Stenner Creek ranch as your home away from home during your stay.

Beautiful rolling hills with spectacular views! Felt a bit like Tuscany!
One feels like they are in the Italian countryside. Olive and oak trees surround you and all one hears is the wind through the tall grass, the red tails, and the creek. The backyard is perfect for celebrating “anything!” The house itself is full of character. Only difficulty are the locations of 3 great bathrooms. Two are only accessible through the 2 master bedrooms. Other than this little inconvenience, this house is a gem in the rough! Can’t wait to return!

Nice large house and yard
We had a great stay and the house was perfect for our group. I wish we had more time to enjoy the yard and the scenery. The drive to get to the house was a little longer than I expected, but Not too bad since we brought everything we needed. Chuck was very accomodating and easy to communicate with. Overall would recommend!

Perfect location to relax for the weekend
My group had an amazing time staying at this house. The pictures were spot on to what we experienced there. The kitchen was fully stocked with the tools to cook breakfast and dinners. We couldn't connect to the Wifi but still had 5 bars out in the valley, so it wasn't much of a problem. The communication with Chuck on planning to visit this place has been top notch. He always responded to my emails within a few hours. Thank you for making my first VRBO visit as smooth as possible. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone with a large group that wants to get away from the city life.
