Enjoy stunning sun sets and Picnic under the grand Oak Trees at the ranch or maybe come by the saloon next door for a cold beverage if we are around. :-). We are happy to point you in the direction for what ever you want to do. There are so many things to do in Thousand Oaks!

We spent a couple of days over Thanksgiving here and we couldn’t have been happier. Meggan and Chris were fantastic hosts. We forgot our 120v to 30 Amp hookup but Chris was more than happy to go out and purchase one for us. Meggan delivered fresh muffins and a rather welcome bottle of Pinot noir. This place is a real private retreat, with wonderful Mountain View’s and serenity. It’s a short trip to the trails and Malibu beach. The ranch is modeled on the gold rush era with its own saloon. Book with confidence and have a private quiet retreat like we did. Thanks Meggan and Chris for being spectacular hosts.

It was great having Mat and his family at our ranch. They were a real pleasure especially during these Covid days. I hope you will be back and thank you for choosing us! Warmest, Meggan

Wonderrul country setting in an elegant environment. Quiet and peaceful. Surrounded by mountains with beautiful sunsets. Hosts were very hospitable and helpful if we needed. Welcomed us with a lovely platter of fruit, snacks, candies. Stayed on a very large and level plateau, with a comfy sofa, chairs and table overlooking scattered mansion estates in the valley. Thank you Meggan for our extraordinary stay.

Meggan is the greatest camp host of all time! Property is amazing, flattest zone I have ever set my tent on. She was absolutely going the extra mile even cooked some lasagna for me and the boys! Ten stars Meggan you are the best. Can’t wait to come back!

Meggan and Chris made us feel very welcome on their property, which is nestled in a very secluded area. We had plenty of room for the camp site and for the kids to play.. There is a nice llitle hike behind their house and lots of room to mpve around.

Meggan and Chris were excellent hosts. They were very understanding of our late arrival time and worked to help us get set up even taking a break from their Valentine's day dinner! Their property is very secluded, nestled in the beautiful mountains. In addition to the views, there is plenty of animals and wildlife to enjoy - jack rabbits, chipmunks, blue jays, and they are surrounded by other ranches who have horses. They also have an 1800s style saloon that you can take pictures in and enjoy with a lovely table for to have a nice outdoor meal. The whole place just had a great vibe and it's not far out from the city but it feels like it is. We really enjoyed ourselves and appreciated our hosts very much. They were very generous and responsive. My family and I would definitely stay here again.

Meggan’s ranch is a DREAM! It was so incredibly peaceful and quiet - it definitely does not feel like you’re only 8 minutes from everything you would need in Thousand Oaks. Meggan is an incredibly attentive host and made my stay so comfortable. I would go back in a heart beat!
