Ranch Activities

Common Questions

Yes We do.

No. It is usually only full in Spring. The ranch has several ponds and streams which are usually full during the months of February through May, however, they can evaporate over the summer season. Drought years sometimes leave us stream and pondless until the next fruitful, rainy season.

Seven Oaks Ranch is a beautiful 350 acre preserve just outside Santa Margarita in Pozo Valley, the heart of Central California. Historic San Luis Obispo and California Polytechnic State University are a mere fifteen miles away. The ranch is surrounded by over 200 vineyards and wineries. The beaches of Avila, Pismo, Shell and Cayucos, as well as San Luis and Morro Bays, lie within a 45 minute drive from the ranch. Also within that range are the quaint historic towns of Templeton, Cambria, Paso Robles, Arroyo Grande and Los Osos.

The Missions at San Luis Obispo and San Miguel, as well as the Hearst Castle and Pozo Saloon, also provide entertaining afternoons.

If you have a party of more than 12 people, we will discuss a separate fee structure, approval and special arrangements must be made for parties exceeding 12 people.

The GREAT OAK HOUSE has three flat-screen televisions. One is located above the bar in the large pool table room with a wood-burning stove, where easy viewing from the four wing back chairs creates a lovely, relaxed afternoon happy hour location. A 60′ flat screen television is placed in the comfortable living room, also with a wood-burning stove, where larger groups can gather for the movie experience. In the den, just off the large kitchen and sitting room, is a 40′ flat-screen television for more intimate and informative viewing. The kitchen bar seats four people, just adjacent to the large dining room, where two 7′ x 4′ dining tables provide ample, comfortable dining for 16 people.

Yes, but you must be a guest staying at the ranch. Our guests enjoy the peaceful atmosphere the ranch has to offer — ‘quintessential quietude’. Rolling hills covered with many trees of different varieties surrounding four seasonal ponds and streams provide you with the opportunity to picnic or read a book under an oak giant that has been shading that spot for over 500 years. Imagine!

Seven Oaks Ranch

Seven Oaks Ranch is a beautiful 350 acre ranch located in Santa Margarita, California.

“We were so fortunate to find this listing. Although it was a little remotely located it worked out perfectly because it rained most of the time and the house was so spacious and comfortable we didn’t mind staying in at all. There were moments when the rain stopped and we were able to walk and hike and the doggies loved it.” -John L.

Golf lovers will find many options when visiting the Santa Margarita area. One notable golf course is the @chalkmountaingolf  Chalk Mountain Golf Course in Atascadero.  This championship course was designed by Robert Muir Graves. Old oak groves surround the course and provide a home for wildlife. Several creeks meander through the area creating natural beauty.  One creek is part of six of the course’s holes. You’ll find that the course is well established and perfectly maintained. Beginning golfers will find that they can hone their skills on the large greens.  Experienced golfers will find the relentlessly undulating greens challenging.  Several also have green-side bunkers to increase the difficulty.  When you finish your game, visit the restaurant and pro shop.  Experiencing the area through the natural beauty of this course will add a special addition to your trip itinerary.  This is one of several courses conveniently located near Seven Oaks Ranch.⠀
Have you ever come nose to nose with an alpaca or frolicked with a goat?  Here’s your chance to experience farm living.  At Giving Tree Family Farm @givingtreefamilyfarm, the whole family will engage with a variety of fun, furry -and feathered- farm animals such as turkeys and pot bellied pigs.  Buckle up for a fun afternoon touring the farm and learning about the animals. They also offer fun workshops like cheesemaking and goat milk soap making. If you simply want to take some of the farm products home, the shop sells soaps, lotions and lip balm.  It’s a fun day for the whole family near Seven Oaks Ranch. ⠀

The Charles Paddock Zoo in nearby Atascadero, CA offers families with kids plenty to do for an afternoon. Choose it for a fun spot for a brunch or dinner. The surroundings naturally entertain guests both young and old.

Need a spot for your bachelor party? Try @bristolsciderhouse  Atascadero Breweries & Cideries. Micro-brewing at its best, plus you can have an area driving service ferry you between the ranch and brewery. All of the guests remain safe.⠀
