Commune with nature in our beautiful coastal canyon location, set amidst the 4,100-acre Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve, a naturalist’s haven teaming with wildlife and over 500 plant species. Embark on a soul-clearing hike, amble on horseback, or cycle along sagebrush-lined trails, taking time to marvel and connect with the ancient landscape. For those looking to rouse their competitive side, there’s tennis, pickleball, archery and more—plus two pools to perfect the art of basking in the warm San Diego sunshine. Whatever you choose, we will put you at the heart of the experience, delivering what matters most to you. Making the moment is not enough. We make the moment yours.
