The ranch is just a few miles from the town of Tomales, less than one mile Shoreline Highway (Highway 1), and a great home base for both Marin and Sonoma Counties.

Please note: No pets, no smoking, no open flames. We have three other vacation rentals about 1.5 miles away. This is a working ranch and we have an employee that lives close to this house (the two houses share a driveway). Please note that you will likely see our employees and guests on the ranch and will see and hear cars, trucks, and the operations of a working family ranch.

If you are looking to host an event or do commercial/professional photography, please contact us first. Renting this house does not allow you to have a party or event on site. Maximum occupancy is 10 guests at all times.

Our stay at Zia’s House was amazing! The house is beautifully redone, wonderful for large family and friend gatherings. It is rustic and modern at the same time. House is very well appointed. It is a gorgeous setting, VERY relaxing. Easy drive to Bodega, Point Reyes, and Petaluma. We always enjoy the Stemple Creek Ranch and will definitely be back! Thanks Lisa!!
