Anne met us and was very welcoming. It was a wonderful stay, the camp spot was very nice, exactly as shown, the grove was quiet and lovely, the view of the vineyard next door was an added bonus. The location was central to all of our favorite wineries and restaurants. We look forward to visiting again!

This was an unexpected find and it exceeded all of our expectations!
Anne and Mike are great hosts and the very private yet “central” location is something you only hope to find.
We can’t wait to return.

We had a wonderful weekend at the Grove. The site was lovely, with a nice pad, set up with table and chairs, fire pit, corn hole set and nice solar lighting.
The site was very private with walnut trees on 3 sides, and with the van parked it was completely enclosed.
On arrival there was a nice list of local attractions and a welcome bag of walnuts from the farm, which were delicious.
One of the owners came by to check we had everything we needed and they gave us a contact number if we needed any assistance.
The Santa Ynez valley is beautiful, and this is a great location close to los Olivos and solving.

This place is incredible. We were stuck for a place last minute and they responded right away. Great location and easy to get to off the 101. Mike came down and welcomed us the night we arrived with a bag of walnuts from their farm and Anne checked in on us on the morning. We’ll definitely return.

Mike and Anne are wonderful hosts and super responsive! My fiancé and I were in Los Alamos for the day and decided to camp last minute. We were greeted by Mike (very nice), chatted for a few minutes then we went on to set up for the night. Candied walnuts souvenir was also a nice touch.

We had a peaceful, happy stay in the walnut grove and our hosts were personable, helpful, and friendly. We were greeted with a cute flower arrangement and a bag of gourmet sugared walnuts! The location is perfect, right between Solvang, Los Olivos, and Santa Ynez.

A beautiful hideaway in the wine (& walnut) country! Thanks Mike & Anne!
