Luxury and comfort in the high desert
Our first ranch brochure advertised us as “a real Western ranch with modern accommodations for a limited number of guests.” By 1931, the dining room, swimming pool and La Casa de Rosita were built, and today our inviting quarters can hold up to 28 guests. Comfortable and charming, each guest room has a private modern bath, hand-painted Monterey furniture, custom cowboy bedspreads and drapes, and a collection of western artwork.
In addition, there is The Homestead House, which was built in the early 1900s and served as dude ranch headquarters when the Kay El Bar was a cattle ranch. Today it retains the original thick-walled adobe ranch style and is a two-bedroom, two-bath cottage. Spacious and comfortable, with its own living room and fireplace, it’s perfect for families, two couples or small groups. It can sleep up to seven persons.
Guests can also choose from one of the two casitas tucked away under towering salt cedar and eucalyptus trees. The spacious Casa Grande has a sitting area and fireplace. It can accommodate one or two children staying with their parents. Casa Monterey has twin beds and great views of the Bradshaw Mountains. Both casitas have large walk-in showers.
