Productivity has never been so precious, or so hard to achieve. Spending your whole day surrounded by the same four walls can diminish your creativity while hindering your focus—and distance learning makes it a challenge for parents to get anything done.
So why not jump-start everyone's productivity with a fresh environment where the family can work, learn, and play? We often call Carmel Valley Ranch a 500-acre playground, but it can be an office, a classroom, or anything else you like!
Log in for a team call from a poolside cabana with views of the Santa Lucia Mountains, while your children join their classmates for a distance-learning session from your spacious one-or two-bedroom suite. From private decks to prime spots in front of the fireplace, along with courtyards, terraces, and other cozy nooks, The Ranch has plenty of calm, serene space to minimize distractions and reclaim your productivity.
BREAK FOR FAMILY FUN
Better breaks also can provide better focus, and they're fun, too. Start the day with an invigorating hike or hilltop yoga, and send the kids off for beekeeping lessons, falconry and a goat meet-and-greet between math lessons and homework. The whole family will love activities such as craft workshops, archery, night golf, and nature walks. It’s not all about work or school—sometimes it’s just got to be about pure play.
Studies show that fueling up on the right foods can enhance attention span, memory and brain function, so we make it easy to embrace healthy eating habits. Our local, organic fare can be delivered to wherever your "office" or "classroom" is on any given day. Then, break for an al fresco family picnic featuring our chef's selection of fruits, breads and vegetables, along with our own artisan goat cheese, honey and sea salt blends. At the end of the day, reward everyone with a dinner at Valley Kitchen—or just spread out with room service, preparing for the (productive) fun ahead.
