Nestldown is a 180-acre property that was originally designed and developed for the owners and their family use, with the goal of offering a special space for the non-profits benefitting disadvantaged or disabled individuals or those in crisis and transition. Once a working fruit ranch at the turn of the century, the property was also the location for the Summit area grade school. It is a private family retreat nestled among the redwoods in the Santa Cruz Mountains and surrounded by acres of carefully tended flower gardens and orchards. Nestldown is an especially beautiful escape from the everyday world. Nestldown has over seven acres of landscaped lawns and gardens, as well as 35 acres of working orchards producing peaches, apples, kiwis and other fruits. The grounds also offer a full tennis court and baseball field. Children will delight in the Fantasy Garden and Cottage, a furnished children's playhouse that is guarded by topiary sculptures and carrousel animals.
