“‘Easy as Pie’ - we have never really understood that saying.  What's so easy about pie?  You have to prepare the fruit, and when you're farmers like us, you have to grow it, which means you have to plan and build irrigation systems, build a fence to keep the deer out, plant trees, fertilize them, prune them, fight the bugs and birds, and pick the fruit and prepare it for the pie - not to mention buying the land and paying the taxes.  Then, you have to make a huge mess in the kitchen with flour flying everywhere, roll out the dough, and hope it doesn't crack.  You clean it all up while you're baking the pie and then your family comes in and devours it in a nanosecond.”  Opened Daily. Summer Hours 10am - 7pm.  Winter Hours 10am - 6pm.

“Old Stone Station was a gas station built in 1931 by Clyde and Myrtle Van Scoy. A garage was later added on in 1934. In 1945 new owners Curtis (Woody) and Hazel Woodland purchased the property with a help from Rudolph Hearst who Woody called a prince of a guy. Woody was the Hearst’s family mechanic and serviced all the limousines. He would also sometimes babysit Bunky and drive the family around when needed (and maybe a few drunk actors as well). The gas station was managed by “Red” until the late 1940s. The garage and station was given to Miley Fairey when her Step Dad Woody died. Some say Woody still haunts the place. Her husband ran the station and garage until his death, when she then moved into the garage and sold antiques until 2012. It now been purchased and we are waiting to hear what it will be next. The gas station was sold in 1993 to Ray Done who with his stepson Carl Vanicky completely remodeled the gas station and created the restaurant Old Stone Station. Ray passed away and Carl took over the ownership of the restaurant. Old Stone Station is where the locals eat!

HEARST CASTLE - Food and Restaurants (San Simeon)
“Hearst Castle”, “Hearst San Simeon State Historical Monument”, “La Cuesta Encantada”, and “The Enchanted Hill”
http://hearstcastle.org
Hearst Castle, 750 Hearst Castle Road, San Simeon, CA 93452
Tel: 800.444.4445

“William Randolph Hearst started to build a fabulous estate on his ranchland overlooking the village of San Simeon in 1919. He called the estate "La Cuesta Encantada" - Spanish for The Enchanted Hill. By 1947, the hilltop complex included a twin-towered main building, three sumptuous guesthouses, and 127 acres of terraced gardens, fountains, and pools...Hearst's hilltop estate includes three magnificent mansions for guests. "Casa del Mar" (Spanish for House of the Sea) was named for its spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean. The most elaborately decorated of the guesthouses, it is also where Hearst spent his last years in San Simeon before moving to Beverly Hills in 1947 for health reasons...The fanciful Gothic Study is the centerpiece of Hearst's private suite on the third floor of "Casa Grande" - the main building of the hilltop estate at San Simeon. He previewed his newspapers every night here before printing. The concrete arches were decorated by Camille Solon in 1934-35, but the historic Spanish ceiling dates from the early 1400s...Visitors have a rare opportunity to see the white marble floor of the empty Neptune Pool while it undergoes restoration. The pool was initially drained because of leaks, but the action was also part of a larger water conservation effort at Hearst Castle during the current severe drought.”
