Beachfront Cottages History
Historic Beachfront Cottages
1998 marked the 100th year since Alexander MacMillan (“A.M.”) Allan and his wife Satie Allan, my grandparents, purchased the land and built the ranch at Point Lobos. All of us — the six generations who have spent parts of their lives here — appreciate their foresight. A.M. Allan purchased this property in 1898 as part of a former Spanish Land Grant, which included what is known today as Point Lobos State Reserve.
Enjoy the rich history of whaling, dairy operations, abalone fishing, and canning operations which were among many thriving businesses that A.M. Allan operated on this historic property.
