About this property

★Get the Julian feel w/out Julian prices!★ Stay in 1 of 5 private adobe casita rooms w/own bath & entrance on a 6-acre, 1940's country ranch w/ giant oak trees & mountain views in Warner Springs. Cool off in the pool or star gaze in the hot tub while sipping your favorite beverage. This dark sky community is a perfect getaway from city life & is just 30 min to 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.

Rooms are the original 1940’s style--small but cozy with a cabin bunk style feel (bed, nightstand, closet, fireplace & attached ¾ bathroom). This is a quite remote feeling ranch and as a ranch, be prepared for dirt and farm animals. If you’re expecting the Hilton, this is not the right place for you, but if you’re looking for a true rustic, remote experience, with the benefits of beautiful surroundings, a pool & hot tub, you won’t be disappointed.

Guests will enjoy:

★Casita Room #6:

1 queen bunk bed w/pull out twin trundle (sleeps 5 people)

Private entrance

Attached bath/shower

Wood burning fireplace

Ceiling fan & space heater

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 1200 sqft lodge (shared space) with:

Full kitchen

Dining room/living room w/stunning sunset views

Double-sided stone fireplace

Outdoor deck overlooking duck pond

TV w/ Netflix

“The lodge area is great to hang and meet other travelers.”

★Pool & Hot Tub

★Wifi & excellent cell service

★Farm animals: donkeys, goats, pigs, horses, chickens, sheep, & cows.

★Direct access to shaded trails & 2 miles from the Pacific Crest Trail (hike to Eagle Rock).

★14 12x12 horse stalls

★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. Perfect to hang out on the ranch, visit Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, and swim/lounge in the hot tub. 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.”

★★Guests can Horse Camp, Hike, Mountain Bike & is Off-Road Vehicle friendly with trails right off the property! Contact us for more information & rates for horse camping. ★★ “Hiking in the area is fabulous!!! PCT to Eagle Rock was sooooo fun!!!”

If you’re needing a unique place to stay or to host an event, family gathering, retreat, camp or even a wedding, Ranchita is it! Whole facility rental option available, too.
