Historic Hotel

Established in 1875, Sierra Sky Ranch was the first working cattle ranch in the area and, at one time, the largest in the state of California. In the old days, the ranch supplied food for the logging camps at Sugar Pine and Soquel. During World War II, it served as a Rest and Recreation (R&R) Center for American servicemen.
