Cool off in the pool or star gaze from the hot tub while sipping your favorite beverage. This dark sky community is a perfect getaway from city life & is located just 30 minutes from Julian & Anza Borrego State Park. It’s a great place to relax, hike, bike, horse camp or off-road w/access to trails & the PCT 2 miles away. Built w/ handmade adobe bricks, Ranchita Margharita was designed for large gatherings, but can easily accommodate smaller groups.

Guests have access to: ★The entire casitas building: 5 casita rooms w/private entrance Attached bathroom/shower Fireplace Ceiling fan & space heater 4 rooms are bunk style with either queen or twin bunks 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 1500 sqft lodge with: Full kitchen Dining room/living room w/stunning sunset views Double-sided stone fireplace Outdoor deck overlooking duck pond TV w/ Netflix DVD player ★Pool & Hot Tub (not fenced) ★Wifi & excellent cell service ★Farm animals: donkeys, goats, pigs, horses, chickens, sheep, & cows. ★Direct access to trails & 2 miles from the Pacific Crest Trail (ride/hike to Eagle Rock). ★Horse amenities: 8 12x12 stalls Round pen Water buckets Water access ★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. 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.” Bring your own groceries to make meals in our fully functional kitchen or drive to restaurants 10-30 minutes away. If you’re needing a unique place to horse camp or host an event, family gathering, retreat, camp or even a wedding, Ranchita is it! More

Interaction with guests
I am often there on weekends, but have my own space on the property. I am happy to interact as much or as little with guests, depending on their preference. I will do my best to stay out of your way, if I am there, but will need to share the kitchen area occasionally. I do love meeting guests and often cook authentic Indian food for them when desired.
