About Margene Mooney

Owners Michael & Margene moved from Ventura County in 1998 with the dream of starting a winery. Their successful Chateau Margene Cabernet & Bordeaux program then spawned the Mooney Family label, which produces Pinot Noirs & Chardonnays from the Santa Lucia Highlands. Their main home is on the estate as well, but far enough away to provide seclusion to guests renting the Ranch House.

Margene Mooney purchased this farmhouse in 1998

Why Margene Mooney chose Creston

This home is for those who are looking for a taste of staying in cattle and wine country, while being close enough to enjoy all the restaurants and special events Paso Robles has to offer. Enjoy seclusion or spend time exploring the Paso Robles AVA. Relax on the tasting room viewing deck, take in the sunset and sample some of the world class offerings while chatting with the winemaker.

What makes this farmhouse unique

On-site winery & vineyard tours and wine tasting.

Beautiful environment

  • 5 of 5

This setting provided us with all that we needed. We particularly enjoyed the front deck and peaceful view of the property. Our stay was mid-week so the winery on the property was not open and we were unable to taste the wine. This was a bit of a disappointment but overall we would highly recommend staying here.

Charming, well-equipped and in the perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I shared a relaxing long weekend at the cabin and were very impressed by the entire set-up. Margene and her husband were gone, but their son John took great care of us. We enjoyed cheese plates on the patio, the bbq in the back, and walking over to the tasting room to play with the three lovely dogs and try some of the Chateau Margene wines (which are excellent). We were all sad to leave and hope to come back soon!

It is just as described " A rustic ranch house" with a great view of the surrounding rolling hills vineyard. The accomodations were clean and cute . The staff were helpful and very friendly. We had no complaints. We enjoyed having barbeque in the backyard and watching the sunset over the beautiful rolling hiss of the vineyards.

Thanks for a great experience.

The Ranch House was the perfect quiet retreat we were looking for. Tess, the big cuddly giant dog, made us feel like if we were home.

Quiet retreat...

  • 5 of 5

Organizing and attending a family wedding in Creston I felt the need for a nearby place to stay before and after the ceremony and reception. The size of the Rustic Ranch House was perfect for my husband and me and several out-of-state family members with different schedules. The interior design was fun and rustic ranch...loved the tile in the bathrooms.

Even though we arrived later than planned, this was not a problem with management. Lots of beverages awaited our arrival along with a platter of delicious apple turnovers.

My favorite part of the home was the porch with its soothing water feature where I sat listening to the birds, a perfect place to unwind the morning after the festivities. I would definitely use this home again as a "spillover" location for any Creston family event.

Fabulous Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place to relax and get away from it all! The accommodations were excellent and the privacy was very appreciated. My friends and I enjoyed every aspect of the stay - from delicious wine tasting, to long conversations on the porch, to enjoying the beautiful views of the surrounding vineyards. NICE! This is a place I look forward to visiting again.
