About Us



An Inviting Escape

Welcome to Riata Ranch, a little slice of paradise nestled in the rolling hills of Santa Margarita, California. We are honored to offer Riata’s majestic beauty as a backdrop for your special occasion or relaxing escape.

Originally part of the Santa Margarita Ranch, Riata is steeped in California history. The ranch was established as part of Father Junipero Serra’s famed Mission Trail in the late 1700s and has since occupied a distinct place in the history of the Golden State.

Today, this 1,200 acre working ranch combines the same breathtaking scenery that drew settlers long ago with modern and stylish spaces designed for your entertaining and enjoyment.


We can't wait to see you.

Beautiful and easy to feel like a millionaire.

Pictures don’t do the house and property justice... It is much more beautiful than you can capture in photos.
