This place is a gem! It is full of beautiful views of the lake and there are plenty of great trails around. The owner, Lee, was incredibly welcoming and made my girlfriend and I feel at home. This place has a very unique vibe and I would recommend it to my friends in a heartbeat.

Thank you Joe for the nice review. Kite Car was amazing seeing her make it up this driveway. You inspired me to open another spot. A safe place to park you car or van. Thanks again, hope to see you for another visit soon. Lee

Lee and his team were awesome! My partner and I wanted to experiment with “5th wheel” living and this place was perfect. BEAUTIFUL site, incredible peaceful, great hiking, and sweet dogs on the property. It was a bit hairy getting up to the location (gravel road that is steep in places) but the team was super helpful and responsive. We’ll definitely be back! So grateful for their hospitality!

The sweetest puppy, Huck. There’s a swing off of one of the hiking trails! Pura Vida Springs RanchPura Vida Springs Ranch

Our caretaker, Kyle was amazing! The road up to the camping side is definitely super steep and needs a 4 wheeler for sure. But Kyle made sure to bring us up and made sure he was available to the whole weekend.

The camping side next to the spot where they keep the horses has the best view. We stayed in the RV but next time definitely will consider camping :)

Highly recommended if you are looking to get out of the city and find yourself in off the grid with nature mama :)

Wow, what a gem of a property! The views are lovely, the animals will melt your heart ( especially Huck, the farm dog), but the best part of all are the hosts. Lee wasn't in town but we had the pleasure of meeting Kyle and Ron who really made us feel welcome and took the extra steps to make our stay special, like sharing their coffee supply when we couldn't find our own! We hope to be back soon to see our new friends again. Plus the location is great being close to the Blue Lakes, great hiking, and many wineries.

It's worth noting the driveway is very steep and you do need a AWD vehicle to get up it. Ron and Kyle helped us out but hopefully, in the future, guests don't have to be reliant on them to go to/from- they are busy enough as it is keeping this working farm going! If you're a camper that needs fancy amenities to be comfortable, this probably isn't the listing for you. But if you're willing to 'rough it' with an outhouse and embrace being back to the basics, this spot is certainly a treat! We really enjoyed our stay

Unfortunately Lee was out of town during our stay but communicated with us along the way and was very helpful. Kyle, Lee’s caretaker was welcoming and kind enough to drive us down to our vehicle every morning. The space is great, private and filled with the necessary equipment for a convenient stay. Definitely worth the visit! It was so nice waking up to the sound of nature. The surroundings of the location are beautiful and walking down to see the horses made it even better. The area is one of the most cleanest towns I’ve been to during these times and so it definitely makes you feel very safe. Lee and Kyle are great hosts and we appreciate them welcoming us to their beautiful property.

The 2 horses that we would walk down to see during our stay. Very sweet animals. The view of one of the lakes near the horses was so nice!!!Pura Vida Springs RanchChuck is such a sweet puppy. He’s full of energy and would always come down to greet us.

Lovely ranch with friendly people! My daughter and I enjoyed a day of exploring the ranch, watching the animals and walking the trail. The ranch is on a hill so it’s good exercise walking up and down the ridge. Very helpful caretaker and owner (Lee). My daughter got to help milk the goats and feed the horses.
