Property Description:

Seven Oaks Ranch is a beautiful 350 acre preserve just outside Santa Margarita in Pozo Valley, the heart of Central California. Historic San Luis Obispo and California Polytechnic State University are a mere fifteen miles away from our ranch which is surrounded by over 200 vineyards and wineries. The beaches of Avila, Pismo, Shell and Cayucos, as well as San Luis and Morro Bays, lie within a 45 minute drive from the ranch. Also within that range are the quaint historic towns of Templeton, Cambria, Paso Robles, Arroyo Grande and Los Osos.

The Missions at San Luis Obispo and San Miguel, as well as the Hearst Castle and Pozo Saloon, also provide entertaining afternoons. Even with the surrounding activities, many of our guests are very content simply enjoying the peaceful atmosphere our Seven Oaks has to offer. Rolling hills covered with many trees of different varieties surrounding four seasonal ponds and streams provide you with the opportunity to picnic or read a book under an oak giant that has been shading that spot for over 500 years. Imagine!

Several ponds and streams usually manifest themselves during the months of February through May and can evaporate over the summer season. Drought years sometimes leave us stream and pondless until the next fruitful, rainy season.

Seven Oaks welcomes you with three available ranch homes, two of which are exclusively dedicated to the vacation rental market.

The three bedroom, two bath MANZANITA HOUSE, nearer to the road, has a deck off the front with a gas barbecue and an enclosed 6' cedar fenced backyard area for pet containment. The large master bedroom has a king bed and a cozy sitting area. The smaller cowboy room has a bunk bed with a double bed below and single above. The third bedroom has pine walls and a cal king bed. The bathrooms are not attached to the bedrooms but are directly outside the bedroom doors. Each bathroom is supplied with a hairdryer.

The large living, dining, and kitchen areas are light and cheery with a wall of french windows and doors and a great skylit ceiling. The tastefully furnished and decorated areas are supplied with standard appliances, cable television, satellite internet and unlimited national phone services excluding 4ll calls.

The GREAT OAK HOUSE, for larger groups, has five bedrooms and four bathrooms. Three bedrooms have cal king beds, one bedroom has a queen bed and the remaining bedroom has twin beds. The second level master bedroom suite is the only upstairs area and is approximately 700 square feet. It has a separate seating area and an outside deck with patio chairs and an umbrella table which is shaded by a number of aging oak trees. The first level master bedroom has a jacuzzi tub. The queen bedroom also has a private bathroom. Each of the four bathrooms is supplied with a hairdryer. Two of the the bedrooms share a private outside patio with entrances from their rooms.

A separate fee structure, approval and special arrangements must be made for parties exceeding twelve people.

The GREAT OAK HOUSE has three flat screen televisions. One is located above the bar in the large pool table room with a wood burning stove, where easy viewing from the four wing back chairs create a lovely, relaxed afternoon happy hour location. A 60' flat screen television is placed in the comfortable living room, also with a wood burning stove, where larger groups can gather for the movie experience. In the den, just off the large kitchen and sitting room, is a 40' flat screen television for more intimate and informative viewing. The kitchen bar seats four people, just adjacent to the large dining room, where two 7' x 4' dining tables provide ample, comfortable dining for 16 people.

The covered and lit patio off the pool table room has a gas barbecue with a side table and burner. The front deck leads to a bonfire ring surrounded by 8 chairs looking toward the windmill and 50 year old barn. A 20' picnic table shaded with two umbrellas is available for outside dining.

The PINE TREE POND HOUSE, occupied by the owners, is sometimes made available for special occasions and events such as family reunions, weddings, church or specific interest group activities (bicycle or car rallys, corporate retreats, wine and horse groups, graduations, etc). The two bedroom two and one-half bath home has a small kitchen, two large living areas and spacious deck. Two wood burning fireplaces provide cozy living, and the family dining and game room areas are enclosed by a light and airy french window wall and door system.

The entire ranch is available for the use and enjoyment of its guests. A topographical map of Seven Oaks Ranch is supplied to visiting guests with suggested trails and activities. We also offer free wine tasting from one of our local wineries, Ancient Peaks, and child care can be arranged with prior notice.

Special supervised adventure type activities may be available and conducted by the owners if schedules and time permit. (i.e. Off-road ranch excursions, skeet shooting at Shotgun Hill, Hay rides etc.)

We hope you embrace the adventure and experience of Ranch and country living as much as we do.

Keywords: ranch property w/several seasonal ponds, extensive hiking, walking, riding trails (bike and horse), wine country, Cal Poly SLO, wonderful seasonal wildflowers & wildlife, beautiful, peaceful setting.

About Greg

History of Seven Oaks Ranch Central Coast Vacation Rental Family Home

Owner Greg Reaume is originally from Pasadena, CA. After earning a law degree from the University of San Diego he went on to create a commercial contracting business in Los Angeles, CA. Greg has 3 sons, a daughter and 5 grandchildren.

Having first acquired the interest in the ranch over 30 years ago, it has always been his plan to create a compound for his family. The vacation home rental idea seemed the perfect solution, creating a place where the extended family and friends could congregate on holidays and reunions, while simultaneously generating income to service and maintain the property. Since Greg loves meeting new people and establishing new friendships, vacation rentals became the perfect vehicle.

Horse shoe pits, a bocci ball court, bon fire ring and fabulous country landscaping are featured at the Great Oak House.

This property is currently rented for $580 per night.

Greg purchased this farmhouse in 1991

Why Greg chose Santa Margarita

Central California is, in our opinion, California's best kept secret!! Low density living in an incredibly clean, clear and green environment gives the area and the people a comfortable, secure feeling where stress and tension seem virtually non-existent. The area offers just about every type of life style experience and adventure all within about a 30-40 mile radius. Beaches, bays, lakes, mountains and streams along with great wine and horse country make San Luis Obispo a spectacular place to live or visit and vacation. We've traveled extensively and find this place to be among the top spots in the world. Come judge for yourselves.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Retreat atmosphere, pristine central coast great oak shrublands, acres of trails, seasonal ponds, california untouched.

Reviewer Comments:

Coming form the city, this house was a wonderful get away for the weekend. It gets you one with nature but still at the comfort of glamping. We choose this location as it was midway between San Francisco and LA as we had families coming from both directions. The house was huge with a lot of activities to do onsite. The billiards room was a hit with my family and they had lot of games to keep us entertained. There is not much to do around it as its located in the suburbs. It is extremely hard to locate at night so try to reach in day light. The directions were not clear towards the end. Overall the amenities were great but there were a couple of hiccups. We could not get the heat going night one so it was very cold but the owners live close by and came to our rescue night two. We saw a lot of deer's, turkeys and lizards in our backyard. It was a great experience overall.

Great for a large family get together

  • 5 of 5

The house is immaculate and fun.

We had two couples, two kids and two independent seniors to fill up the five bedrooms and it was very comfortable. You'll definitely want to stock up the kitchen, as the nearest store is about a 20 minute drive, and the town of Santa Margarita offers basically a saloon and a feed store. The house sits with a few others on over 300 acres of land with paths winding through it. You won't be able to see it all, but it's very peaceful and lovely. Great for long walks and photography.

There is a living room with cable TV and DVD player and drawers stocked with movies from the 80s. Then there's the POOL ROOM where everybody played and which has a separate seating area by a stove fireplace. Several other nooks throughout the house for reading a book and many outdoor gathering areas.

Three of the bedrooms have private bathrooms and two have to share, but it was never an issue. The upstairs bedroom is huge with it's own terrace. At night you might be woken to wild turkeys roaming about. We had deer come wandering by in the morning.

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you'll need for a dozen people. The dining room I believe seats 14 at the table and five at the kitchen counter.

Don't plan on using the internet much here, as service is rather slow, but works fine for emails. The house heating/cooling only works in certain areas of what appears to be an older house that has been extended. There are plenty of blankets.

You're about a half hour from several beach towns, Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo. Hearst Castle is about an hour and a half away.

Great place for multiple families!

  • 5 of 5

This house is the perfect place for multiple families to stay. There are 2-3 bedrooms with their own bathroom, plenty of room for eating together, board games, and the pool table. We fully enjoyed all the trails and outdoor space, beautiful area! The kitchen is well stocked, we were able to cook all our meals there, plus there is a BBQ outside.

Amazing Getaway But Close To Everything!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented this property for a long weekend (Thurs - Sun) while we were in town for our friends' wedding. The house is incredible! The property is far enough off the beaten path that it's a truly peaceful experience where nobody will bother you, yet close enough to everything that all activities are possible. While staying at the house, we went wine tasting in Paso Robles (~20 minutes) and also got dinner in San Luis Obispo (~15-20 mins). The house itself has a nice fire pit with seating, a patio, a deck on the 2nd floor, TONS of space for everyone, a pool table, a bocce pit, horseshoes, cornhole, and wonderful beds/bedrooms. And the owner (Greg) will work with you to help meet your needs on your visit. This was the best rental we have ever stayed at, and we will definitely be looking to come back again soon for another weekend. If I could give this place 10 stars, I would!

Excellent Place to Relax and Unwind

  • 5 of 5

My family of four and a friend's family of four stayed for the weekend and had a great time. The owner was very amiable and responsive to our needs. The house is nicely appointed, very clean, well maintained and well furnished. The kitchen has everything you should need. My little boy commented on how comfortable his bed was. There are plenty of outdoor activities. While we were only at the house for a short time (we spent most of our time in SLO) we did get to see wild turkeys and deer. Highly recommended!

Elegant Comfort, the Best of Ranch Life

  • 5 of 5

With seven kids and now 3 grandkids, vacation has become a reunion every year. This home was so comfortable for the entire extended family, and elegantly appointed, so each couple felt they were on an exclusive "get away".

The kitchen is large and well-equipped. The 4 baths meant no waiting, and offered a genuine spa feel. Even the kids remarked on the quality bed linens.

Our hosts were so generous with their time, tools, and "toys", filling each of our 7 days with the very best of California ranch life. This is a very special place, hosted by very special people who make YOU feel special!
