Later, in 1825 the adobe in front of the hacienda was built by Thomas Olivera as the original ranch house. It is the only structure that remains from those dagerous times. In 1883, John Harleigh Johnston of Gloucester, Massachusetts and Taylor Goodrich of San Francisco purchased the property. In 1892, sensing a growing popularity of other small resorts in the area, Harley Johnston made plans for a small hotel that would accommodate 40 people. The Johnston family managed the ranch until 1935 when it was sold to Ronald Colman and alvin Weingand. The pair operated it as an exclusive hideway for famous people. Bing Crosby, Audrey Hrepburn, Groucho Marx, Gloria Swanson. Vivian Leigh and Lawrence Olivier married there, in 1953, John and Jaqueline Kennedy honeymooned there. One of the 25 Dream Resorts,
