Fantastic. Peaceful. Just what we needed. We needed a place to stay while we searched for a new home. The Round House was just right. Dana helped us when we needed it and didn't bother us otherwise. The other campers were all respectful and not loud or bothersome.

A fabulous oasis retreat. Perfect to stay a night on our road trip, but a destination all it’s own. Can’t recommend enough!

I rented one of the cottages and loved it. A little warm the first night (July weather), but luckily the rain cooled things down the next night. Pool was beautiful and Dana is an excellent host! I felt safe, and even met a nice family at the pool (physically distanced). I highly recommend this place. Beautiful views and lots of options for any size group (dry camping, RVs and cottages). I’ll def be back!

Loved my cottage! Pool is great and easy to physically distance.  View out of my cottage

If you are looking for peaceful desert solitude on an interesting property, this is your spot! I stayed the night here between the Austin, TX and Ojai, CA portion of a recent road trip, and I would do it again... Dana is smart and nice, and the property itself has some cool history. Two thumbs up!
