Hidden hillside retreat about 20 minutes from San Juan Capistrano. At 2400 ft elevation on a peaceful private 10 acre ranch you’ll enjoy rural local living on Ortega Mountain. Seasonal creeks flow around the property. Enjoy sweeping views of rock formations and Oak woodlands of the Cleveland National Forest.
Hear roosters, goats, donkeys and horses enjoying serene ranch life.

The space
Moments away from Ortega Falls, Candy Store, General Store, El Cariso Village, camping and Bear Canyon/San Juan Loop Trailhead.

Guest access
Gated entrance to private property where cottage is located on hillside above working horse ranch. 2 other residences/tenants on the property. Cottage has its own front and back patios under shade of ancient oaks with plenty of privacy and space to explore.

Other things to note
Located 1/2 mile down a quiet dirt road. Easy drive via car but please drive slowly to respect our neighbors and the local horses, llamas and animals who live with us in this charming rural community.
I only know of Verizon and AT&T cell service working here. Otherwise no service.
Our off-grid location means we have satellite wifi (slower than city speeds), septic tanks and no garbage disposal or dishwasher.
We DO have cast iron pans, a griddle, quirky antiques and red barns.
