We didn't want to leave this place! It was such a nice escape staying at this property. Susie has owned and lived on this land since the 60s. Since then a few more people have joined and helped her grow and cultivate the land. Susie has planted 3-4 gardens on the land and usually picks her meals fresh from the garden. She even shared her freshly picked salad with us during dinner!

On the property there is a yoga/dance studio in the upstairs level of the barn, which they use to host yoga/dance retreats. It has a beautiful bamboo floor and is kept up very well. You almost forget you're in a barn! We took advantage of this space and had a couple lovely yoga sessions during our time there.

There is also a sauna and man-made pond a short walk away from the main area. All their water is coming from the glacier water from Lassen Volcanic National Park, so the water was crystal clear and very refreshing :) It was so nice being able to jump into the pond after steaming up in the sauna!

There are a couple different options for lodging here. We stayed in the upstairs level of the main house, which has two queens, one king, and one twin bed. There aren't any dividers upstairs separating the beds, so you get to know your neighbors! There are also a couple twin beds downstairs as well. I would suggest bringing your own sleeping bags or blankets for bedding. Susie charges an extra cleaning fee for using her bedding. There is a toilet and shower available for use in the downstairs of the house as well. Outside you can practically pick your piece of land for your tent site. There are around 6 spots for camping in the main area of the property.

Community is a big aspect of this property and is encouraged for everyone that comes here. Everyone is welcomed to come join the fire pit they light every night. An outdoor cooking area is right next to the fire pit too. They just have tables for cooking, so be sure to bring all your cooking supplies! Fires aren't allowed at the individual tent sites, because fires can easily get out of hand in this area. So, they like to keep the fire to one area.

I would definitely recommend this location if you're in need of a mountain escape. This place is the perfect spot for it!

Could there be a more perfect pond?One of the many tent spots. The yoga studio has enough room for a good-sized group. Back view of the friendly vines reaching around the sauna.

Thanks for the review and it was nice to meet you. I want to correct 2 things. Upstairs in the indoor camping area there are 2 double beds not queen and there are 10 sites near the main area by the fire pit, not six... and close by another 10 campsites. All campsites are simple a level area with water near by. Also it is best to bring a sleeping bag for indoor camping or reserve an indoor made up bed for $20. Thanks again, Nikki. I love your pictures.

What a charming property, nestled in the Cohasset wilderness. Adorable dogs and cats, welcoming hosts, funny noisy bullfrogs, apple orchards, wild berries, and... Mosquitoes. But with repellent, we weren't bothered too much. The water temperature of the pond was perfect. There is a communal firepit, running water, and a guest house with showers. Everything was beyond expectations. I will be back!

ISO a place to ""Turn on, tune in, drop out"? Enchantment Ridge is just that place to BE. A short drive (3 hours) from the Bay. This is the place to turn off your phone (all electronics), follow the game trails, listen to the old growth trees and if you're lucky ;-) have the pleasure of "talk-story" with Susie. And while you're there...spend a few hours of your time giving back to the land and find a project Susie, long-time steward of this precious place, will surely benefit from.
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. ~From Susie from Einstein
Deep bow of gratitude Susie, I look forward to my next dose of deep grounding.

Susan and her family are some of the greatest people I have ever met and Enchanted Ridge is one of the most special places i have ever been. I have stayed there many times and my times there are always meaningful and sweet. I love it so much I hope to retire in Cohasset!

We had two younger kids (5 and 7) and camped in our tent. What an amazing place! So beautiful and comfortable. The pond, sauna, camping spots and general area were all well kept, clean and safe. Susie is awesome. Highly recommend this hipcamp!

This is a special place! The sauna, pond, and yoga barn really set the Enchanted Ridge apart. We had a RAINY weekend, but our whole group fit comfortably into the beautiful yoga space at night. We loved the heat of the gorgeous sauna, and jumping into the pond afterwards was magical. Access to prep tables, a sink, and the grill over the fire made our stay really convenient.

Better than expected, Susan’s property has lots of space to disconnect and tune into nature. The sauna and pond was fantastic. We also enjoyed our secluded camping spot and the other campers company in communal areas.

Susie and her place was absolutely wonderful! My four girlfriends and I had the best time just getting away. The ridge is truly enchanted as described and I hope everyone gets a chance to experience this!
