Bird oasis, rustic picnic getaway
Lee and Laura were excellent hosts and were delightful to speak with. Warm, kind and made sure we had everything we needed. Their home is a bird/wildlife oasis nestled in high desert. Gorgeous fields of pistachio trees carpeting the valley below a gorgeous mesa up top, (now a retired clay pigeon range) full of wildlife and views. Old hunting & farming trinkets dot the establishment built by Lee, an old rustic outdoor area full of spots to sit and sip at sunset, or cook and dance. Lots of old benches and platforms to sit and relax and enjoy company. Perfect for large gatherings with the immense old kitchen area. I enjoyed the rustic country feel and was grateful Lee is sharing his large outdoor abode. Please do keep in mind if you are looking for modern glamour, you won't find it here. It's a rustic gem full of heart. There is a toilet in 2 separate small bathrooms (I didn’t mind the little bit of dirt and old bird poop on the ground in the ladies room- there was a shower, yet not for use I believe—and the ladies sink had low water flow) yet the rock walls and old décor was charming. The nearby kitchen sink outside had good water flow for washing dishes and hands however not everything in the area are functional-so keep in mind to bring your cooler, stove and amenities. Tons of wood tables shaded by old logs and aluminum ceilings and a huge pit for a glorious fire. Dirt camp area under the trees and also exposed areas near the pistachio field—tons of space to camp. Look out for beautiful snakes and few biting insects. The wind helped keep them at bay and so does the concrete platforms and structures. Adjacent to the old hunter’s structure is another camp area (north of this site) by the same owner. This kitchen was clean and more modern and functional with gorgeous swing chairs near a beautiful fire pit if you are looking for something a bit less rustic. We had the whole place to ourselves and had an amazing time relaxing, sitting at the fire, cooking on the wooden table slabs and watching the birds and sunset.
This place was incredible. The campsites were all nestled under a canopy of trees....straight out of the desert into a lush oasis. The amenities were also much more than expected, as there is a giant kitchen (sink and a grill/smoker large enough for several hundred pounds of meat), running water, bathroom, stage and dance floor, several covered patios and out buildings, fire pits...SO MUCH SHADE, sweeping views of the pistachio fields--west facing, of course, for sunset viewing. The property has a retired clay pigeon shooting course atop a hillside which offers more patios and breathtaking 180 degree views of the valley below. Lee and Laura were gracious hosts, making sure that all of our needs were met. Super friendly folks who have created this space with a lot of love and heart and soul. Maggie, the snaggletooth dog will jump in your lap if you let her (or gladly move on). I can't say enough about this place really. Special gem.
Private with so much to enjoy!
Big, beautiful campsites! We chose the first one with flush toilets, running water/sinks/shower, dance floor, multiple dining areas (large picnic tables and bar tables), huge kitchen and MASSIVE BBQ/smoker. With our little tent this felt like "glamping" for us (fine by me), and there are more rustic sites if that's what you're after. Aside from the BBQ there was a huge campfire pit with wood set out, a fire poker and starter. The property has many trails (you could hike them all day) with beautiful views of surrounding farms and mountains from the peak. The lower campsites are set up right beside a pistachio farm. If you're a bird-watcher: Huge variety of birds flitting around and singing all day (finches, swallows, hawks, ravens, vultures, doves). At night we saw and heard owls perching on the trees on the hillside. Twice we woke up to coyotes howling. The stargazing can't be beat, clear, sprawling stars are visible right from sunset. The sites are big enough to host multiple RV's but still feel private / remote. We had an awesome time and the hosts are wonderful people! We'll definitely be back.
Bird watchers paradise
Beautiful, easy going and relaxing. It was really lovely to stay on the farm, the hosts are super nice and it was fascinating to see pistachio nuts growing. It’s a working farm so there’s plenty of interesting things to look at. The amount of bird life is just amazing, birds everywhere, all different colors singing in a wide array of trees and plants, all set in a beautiful scenery. The set up was really great, very comfortable the bathroom was very clean there’s plenty of shade, running water, the shower was cold but refreshing. It was private, lots of great hiking. The farm has three lovely dogs, we’re in love with Charlie! Our dogs got along no drama.
We had a great experience at this property. Upon arrival, we were informed that a prior group had trashed the property and that the restrooms were clogged but the hosts had portapotties there very soon after our arrival and later had a small crew come by to try to fix the bathrooms but were sadly unable to. The hosts are very kind, friendly people and made sure to check in several times over the weekend to make sure we didn't need anything. The site itself has lots of space, shade, electricity, running sink water and trash dumpster on site. There is minimal cell service. We were informed of lots of hiking trails on the property but it was way too hot to explore. You can tell that they take great care of their property and it's really a shame that they had to experience their property being trashed and damaged from bad campers. The site was very clean upon arrival and we had a nice, relaxing time. Hope to come back again when it cools down!
The Rustic Old Hunt Cabin was a special stop for us - leaving the coast is not something we normally do but we are sure glad we did! Lee and his wife were friendly and helpful. Firewood was stacked by the fire pit and bathrooms were clean. We had the full use of the camp for just he two of us ~ we made an outstanding meal on the campfire and it was simple with the large kitchen area to do so. Sunset over the pistachio trees set an amazing view for us to sit and chat while the stars came out. Peaceful and quiet we slept wonderfully and woke up to the sun peaking over the mountain top behind us. Short trip up to the top gave us a spectacular view of the valley. We would love to bring a group back here and stay a few days, enough room to be together but also to find space to be alone. Charlie the dog is an added bonus as he came to visit us in the morning.
Glamping meets farmstay
My group and I had such a wonderful time at the Rustic Hideaway that I almost don't want to keep this hidden gem to ourselves, haha. We arrived and were greeted by the host, Laura, who showed us around the property and immediately made us feel welcome and at home. She had provided tons of wood for us to use during our stay and encouraged us to take free reign of the property and explore.
The property itself is massive with plenty of room to set up tents and a huge outdoor kitchen and entertaining space with lots of picnic tables, a bbq grill/smoker, multiple fire pits, a kitchen sink with lots of prep area, a bar, men's and women's bathrooms, a shower... it was basically "glamping."
During the day we wandered through the pistachio trees on the farm and the foreman stopped to talk to us about how to find ripe ones to pick and encouraged us to come see the harvesting. (TIP: check on if any harvesting is happening during your stay and if it's going to be close to the campsite. When we were there the harvesting was across the property but if it's right by the site you'd be in for a loud and early alarm clock.)
Between hiking, exploring the property and farm, setting up hammocks in all the trees, stargazing, bird watching, grilling and fireside drinking, there was no shortage of things to enjoy at the Rustic Hideaway. We can't wait to get back!!
Very unique, great, space, with perfect hosts. Much more than just a campsite with a kitchen area with counters, benches, a sink, lights/power, a fire pit and tons of space to set up camp. Nice sunset views from camp and even better views if you hike up the ridge.
