  • Welcome To Stonepine: A Private Estate Experience

    Stonepine is nestled amid 330 pristine acres in the gently rolling hills of Carmel Valley on the picturesque Monterey Peninsula of Central California. The privacy of this unique setting has welcomed clientele from throughout the world for intimate hideaways and society celebrations.

    In 1983, Gordon and Noel Hentschel purchased the "Double H Ranch" from the probate of the children of Henry Potter and Helen Crocker-Russell of the San Francisco banking family. They renamed the 330-acre property “Stonepine Estate” after the towering 80-foot Italian Stone Pines, which were planted from 18-inch saplings by the Russells more than 50 years prior. The resultant setting was more reminiscent of Tuscany than Northern California.

    During its first 20 years, Stonepine Estate was the premier U.S. “Purple Shield” member of the Paris-based Relais & Châteaux. The European attention to detail was thereby complimented by an American commitment to creativity and friendliness. A perfect location for “business affairs” or “affairs of the heart.” The Internationally-trained staff will cater to your every need from on-site amenities to Carmel Valley wine tours, area golf, or reservations at local restaurants.  

    Luxurious Accommodations and Private Houses throughout the estate grounds are available for individual short visits or an extended stay as an exclusive venue for special events, corporate meetings and weddings.
