      We three adults and 2 dogs stayed at McFarm March 1 and 2. The house is charming, spacious, and fun! It has a nice, big country kitchen where I enjoyed preparing meals. Bedrooms and beds are very comfortable. We didn't use the hot tub, but it's a definite plus and well located. We really enjoyed seeing the horses too; the property is very quiet and peaceful. The house comes with a wonderful, eclectic selection of books and music....fantastic! We look forward to returning! Thank you!
      Kelly's ranch is a breath of fresh air. We needed a place to relax with our dogs and gather with some family members, and that is exactly what we got. If you don't mind a gently used sofa, the rooms were well equipped, clean, comfortable, and charming. Our dogs got along well with the resident animals and we enjoyed our walks around the property. The beds were comfy, too. I have only a few recommendations for Kelly, and that would be to put curtains in the front bedroom and bath, and to fix the front door - it sticks pretty badly. Otherwise, we enjoyed your music, both recorded and your instruments, as well as the Jacuzzi and BBQ. I'm sure young kids would also enjoy the trampoline. The real selling points of this property are the serenity and the scenery, and you'd be hard pressed to find a better place for that.
      Some girlfriends and I spent an amazing evening at McFarm. The place has a lot of character, is very close to town and close to the beach. The hot tub is perfectly situated for watching the moon pass across the sky. The adorable and friendly pets were an added bonus. My only regret is that the previous renters damaged the record player. Kelly has quite the collection! I'm pretty sure there will be return visitors in the crew. Kelly was a great host — he was kind enough to make himself available for questions and help while also giving space and making it feel like the place was our while we were there.
      I fell in love with The McFarm! It was the perfect retreat for a much needed breather away from my busy life in the city. It had the exact simple and rustic homey charm I needed to focus on finishing my books. No bells or whistle, just peace and quiet set amongst the backdrop of grazing horses and epic wide open sky. The owner was extremely generous in giving me my space as well as helpful in answering any curiosity questions I had about his amazing property. Even the animals were extremely welcoming. In the afternoons, I'd take walks on the property and was always greeted by a warm hello from a dog, or cat or a horse or a singing bird. At night, I enjoyed the solitude of chillaxing outdoors in the hot tub. I highly recommend this down to earth sanctuary. It's perfect for those of you who aren't interested in fancy luxury but are looking for simplicity at its best. McFarm gives you the space and quiet to be yourself held in the arms of nature. And if you have kids, its the perfect home away from home. Trees, trampoline, horses and the great outdoors. Super easy to get to, yet tucked away in the hub of Mother Nature. Only an hour and fifteen minutes away from the city and a few minutes away from the gorgeous beaches of Half Moon Bay. I will definitely go back again and again and again.
      My husband and I brought our horses and dogs to the McFarm for our anniversary weekend. It was just what we wanted, a getaway but not too far from our home in the Bay Area. We had some wonderful riding through Butano and Sam McDonald Parks...could easily have added some hiking and biking and beach days. Pescadero is small and sleepy but the people are super warm and friendly! Kelly is available and informative. The home is eclectic and comfortable, one of those places where you can do things or feel fine doing nothing at all. At night, it's great to hear the roar of the ocean off in the distance.
      This was a great place to bring the kids - lots of space to run around, horses, friendly dog & cat on the property, close to the little town of Pescadero & beaches to explore. We highly recommend taking the hike to see the elephant seals at a nearby state park. Wish we'd have checked out the goat farm time! Many thanks to our friendly host. We hope to return someday...
      Aug 20 Hi Kelly, I really enjoyed our stay. The horses, dogs and your cat were/are so happy there. The space, the stars, the sound of the ocean crashing out there are beautiful every day. Thanks very much for your hospitality. It is a lovely place. Check out my pix on Facebook under Erin...
      ...we are definitely enjoying ourselves.
      My girlfriend, another couple and I spent the weekend at McFarm with the hope that it would provide us with an escape from our busy lives in the city. From our arrival to our departure we couldn't have been more pleased with the experience. Kelly was a gracious host, the horses and landscape was beautiful, and the accommodations were sublime. As close as we were to the modern conveniences of town McFarm has the feel of a relaxing hideaway off the beaten path. Thanks Kelly. Keep the light on we'll be back soon!
      My husband and I brought our two horses down for a weekend of relaxation and peace, and that is exactly what we found. The horses LOVED the atmosphere, as did we. The accomodations for all of us were excellent. Morning rides on the property. . . afternoons driving along the coast, hiking at the beach, or wandering through downtown half-moon bay. . .and cioppino at Duarte's in the evening. . . could not have been better!! We will be back soon!!
      I love this place! I've traveled quite a bit in my life, around the world, with family, friends, and work... and this Farm is still one of my favorite places to go! We've stayed at the Farm several times.. So beautiful, isolated, peaceful... the view, the fresh air and the greenery. It is all so worth it! And it's conveniently located, just off of beautiful Highway 1, close to the ocean but feels far enough from the city :) The House alone is Amazing! Super spacious, super cozy, super clean... beautiful kitchen, comfy living room, clean bathrooms... enough space for everyone! My favorite was the hot tub outside under the stars. The owner was super helpful, sweetest guy I've ever met, always making sure we all felt at home. He told us about all the cool spots to visit and check out while we were in town.. The little town of Pescadero is also conveniently just down the road... Great food, shops, and the most amazing Deli, with fresh foods and killer bread. We go every time we're in town! I joke about buying this farm one day :)
