Walk to the quaint, one street western town along the famous Pacific Crest Trail which runs directly in front of our adobe castle on the hill. Quiet, high desert chaparral only minutes from major LA attractions. The best of both worlds! Please feel free to inquire even on blocked out days, as sometimes our schedule will open up unexpectedly. 40 mi from Los Angeles/Burbank metro area, Universal Studios, 15 minutes from Magic Mountain theme park, and a little over an hour to Disneyland is a beautiful horse ranch nestled in a mountain valley, (a safe and quiet place to stay) the small town of Agua Dulce. The one- street town hosts the best mexican restaurant in So Cal, a coffee shop and two bars with weekend bands. Brand New! Just opened, Mon Ami Cafe is run by a French Canadian sous chef, now the best food in town, open 7-7 (closed betw. 3-5pm and Mondays). The Pacific Crest trail runs directly in front of the house, 1 mile to Vasquez Rocks park. The house is built around a garden courtyard with a fountain. There is a home gym with treadmill, weights, bowflex, mirrors and television. A PRIVATE BATHROOM with shower, large tub, and double sinks adjoins the room, and a large, comfortable queen bed awaits.
