Accommodations, Dining, Weddings, and Events in Carmel Valley, California


Whether in an equestrian setting, in a classic cottage, or in a full-sized house, Double H Ranch is a relaxed choice to experience beautiful Stonepine Estate. 

Hermes House is an elegant, 2-bedroom, full-sized house and has often been a favorite celebrity hideaway. There are fireplaces in the living room, dining room, kitchen and master bedroom.

Briar Rose Cottage is a tranquil and  romantic country retreat. The cottage has two spacious floors, two bedrooms and two & one half baths. Its private location makes it an excellent choice for a honeymoon or anniversary. 

Paddock House has the ambiance of casual California country-style living while its architectural design is reminiscent of a New England ranch house. Choose from four comfortable bedrooms, all decorated with a country motif. Although bedrooms are often rented individually, families or small groups may choose to rent the whole house.

Double H Ranch was once the oldest thoroughbred racing farm west of the Mississippi. An active outdoors lifestyle of hiking and biking is enjoyed here. Blessed with the temperate climate and natural beauty of renowned Carmel Valley, its hundreds of acres offers a variety of experiences. The Western-style ranch, with its fine houses, cottages, bunkhouse and barns, inspires the imagination. It was established in 1927 and its history is being honored, preserved, and enhanced. Famous race horses, such as Kentucky Derby-winner Majestic Prince, were at times working out at the ranch.

In addition to its fine accommodations and equestrian pursuits, the ranch is an exceptional venue for Weddings, Corporate Events, Dining, Wine Tastings, Barbecues, and Family Reunions for groups up to 300.

The Lamplight Pavilion and Paddock Lawn  venues are suited for larger groups. The Blacksmith Bar, the Carriage House, and The Loft, host smaller parties and gatherings.

Double H Ranch Equestrian Country Grill completes the picture with delicious, western style offerings.


Stonepine Estate is also home to historic Chateau Noel, a private residence located a two-minute drive up the hill. It was built in 1929 and is surrounded by towering pines, oaks, and several formal gardens. On occasion, it is the picturesque venue for classic, formal weddings and corporate retreats.

Guests at Double H Ranch may take tours of Chateau Noel’s grounds and gardens. The tours are from 9am – 5pm daily and are by appointment only. For details, contact our concierge at (831) 659-2245 or at

We hope to welcome you to Double H Ranch in the near future.
