What a wonderful little piece of heaven! So many beautiful details, everything in that house is so warm and inviting. I loved all the antiques! The fire pit and overhead lights brought the perfect outdoor ambiance that we were looking forward two, for awhile it felt like we were the only ones around. Her son Anthony was very welcoming and soft spoken, very helpful too! Hopefully next time we will get to meet Lee, I could only imagine how wonderful she must be. We will be seeing you again!!!
Lee and Anthony were incredible hosts! We arrived at their beautiful home to find our names on the door, bottles of wine waiting for us, and chocolate with a personalized note celebrating my wife and my anniversary. I couldn't have felt more welcome and excited for the weekend. The house is just as described and is beautiful. It's a real escape to peace and tranquility. The eggs for breakfast were fresh and delicious. Anthony collected wood for us to make a fire. Just hospitality at it's finest. Thanks so much! Hopefully we will
be back soon!
The ranch was a very unique property with a great backyard. It was walking distance to town and the host family was very warm and inviting.
When we entered the house it felt like stepping into a fairytale. Lee did her utmost best decorating the house as cosy as possible. Lee makes you feel right at home and provides all kinds of breakfast items. The garden is lovely with several lounging areas in between the avocado trees. At arrival there was a nice bottle of wine for the guests to use, a really nice welcoming gesture. We do recommend this place to everyone.
it was a joy to meet Lee and her son, both were very welcoming. it was a treat to enjoy the fresh eggs from the chickens and wander through the gardens and avocado trees. the ranch had a feel of being far away, but it was so close to everything. loved it.
This place was amazing!!! Lee and her son were so accommodating and the property is beautiful! It felt so great to get out of the city and this place is perfect for that. I can't begin to describe how wonderful the experience was and the house is adorable. Everywhere you look, there are little touches that make you feel at home.
Also, the have the CUTEST dog named Gracie who is sure to melt your heart. I wish we could have stayed longer because it was incredible and relaxing.
What a lovely, unique and relaxing stay. Thank you Lee + Rustic Ranch for the warm welcome, delish avocados + fresh eggs, and a quiet weekend getaway. I enjoyed my morning coffee walks wandering through the majestic trees and listening to your chickens. What simple joys.
Lee - your little details were much appreciated, so thoughtful + inviting. Gratitude. xox

Often you will find me outside working on a project for the next flea market, weeding/watering or making succulent gardens. Next I'm taking pictures of the statues in my garden for cards that I will send my family and friends. Yes, I'm active, usually starting my day with a 4-5 mile walk with a good friend...I do have my much needed quiet time. The times I embrace the most are when I am with my children, family and friends. We have many gatherings in the backyard to celebrate whatever we can make up a reason to get together for a meal and a good time. This is one of the reasons I wanted to share my home with airbnb guests, to help make your time away from home enjoyable and a time to remember.
