Why Laurie chose Carmel Valley
This property is part of the historic Rancho Carmelo Dude Ranch that was flourishing during the 1930s-1950s. This was the first dude ranch in California. The old buildings are long gone but the graciousness and peacefulness of an earlier time is still apparent. The spirit of a simpler and very enjoyable period of time is alive at this modest working cattle ranch. The landscape is teaming with flora and fauna; it is a microclimate unto itself.

Carmelo Peak Ranch!
What a great place to stay in the Carmel Valley/Monterey/Big Sur area! Laurie was there to welcome us upon our arrival, she was a terrific & responsive host. The home and property were wonderful, very clean & had amazing views. Highly recommended! We’ll be back.
Cabin in the Hills
This is a lovely home in the hills of the Carmel Valley that is quite comfortable, with amazing views and a wonderful stillness in the surroundings. Decks for outdoor time and good hiking very close by. The owner is gracious and very helpful and lives nearby if there are any needs or quesitons. We had a fine time!
Peaceful location, amazing views
Up a long driveway and located away from the fray, this large home boasts amazing hillside views. From the "crow's nest" room on the very top of the house you can glimpse the Pacific Ocean.
Perfect spot to relax.
This property made our vacation even more memorable.
Pristine surroundings, beautiful home. Perfect landing place for all our Central Coast adventures. Many local wine tasting rooms if you want to avoid more touristy areas. Property owner was great to work with.
The Valley of Peace
We were delighted with our stay! The house has a breathtaking view of the foothills, and is beautifully furnished and decorated. We enjoyed sitting on the numerous decks, and took peaceful walks on Laurie's extensive property, enjoying the birds and deer we encountered. We've stayed in many vacation rentals over the years, and were so pleased to discover the thoughtful touches many rentals lack: An empty fridge and pantry, a well-stocked kitchen, truly comfortable beds, a plentiful supply of bath towels, suitcase stands and empty dressers and closets in the bedrooms, and good lighting where you need it. Our favorite thing, though, was the top floor room, reachable by ladder, which we referred to as the Star Room. We spent an afternoon up there reading, and then returned at night to stargaze and marvel at the Milky Way.
