Welcome to the Guajome Ranch House, an authentic 1850s adobe hacienda. The name Guajome comes from the Luiseno Native American word “wakhavumi” which generally translates to frog pond or home of the frogs.  Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the 28-room, 7,000-square-foot historic adobe served as the headquarters of Rancho Guajome, a Mexican land grant. The large rambling Spanish Colonial style hacienda has two courtyards, an  arcaded veranda, and a chapel. The original adobe bricks and tiles were made by Luiseno Indians who learned the trade at the Mission San Luis Rey during the Mission Era.

The adobe is surrounded by wetland open space that is home to a variety of wildlife such as raccoons, ring-necked pheasants, white-tailed kites, least Bell's vireo and the great horned owl.

Take a hike! The 112-acre park offers hiking, biking and horseback riding on non-motorized multi-use trails. The gardens, green lawn spaces and day-use picnic tables provide a peaceful area to picnic.

Looking for a memorable location? The gardens and grounds can be reserved for weddings, receptions and social events. For more information call the park directly at the number above.
