PLEASE READ THROUGH ALL OF THE INFORMATION PROVIDED PRIOR TO REQUESTING TO STAY WITH US. WE HAVE A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS WE LIKE ANSWERED TO MOVE FORWARD WITH ACCEPTING YOUR REQUEST TO STAY. 

LaRue is a comfy & cozy glamping tent outfitted with a queen sized, Tempurpedic topped mattress, vintage sofa, ridiculous amount of luxurious pillows and lovely blankets, vintage decor, lamps and a cute, little, pink fan. 

This is one of 5 sites at Rudy Ranch. Our property wide, maximum capacity is 18 and all campers have access to the swimming pool, pool bathroom and shower during their stay. It is uncommon to have a full camp.

CHECK IN IS ONLY ALLOWED BETWEEN 3:00 AND 9:00 PM. If you can't make it  by 9:00 PM, please book for the following day.

If you're looking for an ADULTS ONLY, beautiful and quiet place to enjoy a beautiful glamping tent, you've found it!  While we do enjoy the energy of young children, we live in a very quiet neighborhood and have made the decision to exclusively host adult guests looking for a restful retreat. We have also decided that we will NOT make exceptions to this decision and invite those looking for a family experience to continue their search on the Hipcamp platform. There are many family friendly hosts excited to accept children of all ages! 

We supply towels for your use at the pool and ask that you shower before using either the hot tub or swimming pool and not wear any lotions or oils during use. 

COVID-19 - While we offer soap, hot water, hand sanitizer and disinfectant spray we trust that our campers are taking precautions to stay safe and will practice social distancing while staying with us. We do not have anything marked, as we trust that we all are aware of how far 6 feet apart is. ;)  We clean and disinfect the bathroom after each guest checks out and ask each camper to clean up before and after themselves to ensure their own safety.  Sadly, someone has already stolen some of our supplies and we can't afford to keep giving away free things. We know that YOU would never do that....

***There are two things we want to know before moving forward with accepting your request. Please let us know how many cigarette smokers are requesting to book and that you are aware that this booking does not offer a place to cook right outside your door.  This will indicate to us that you have taken the time to read through our information and that there are no false expectations about the set up. We have found this to be necessary and appreciate your understanding. ***

Join us and enjoy all the Santa Cruz mountains has to offer!

This place is perfect. The tent is so cozy and inviting, also nice and secluded. Owners are very kind and helpful as well. Stay here!

Thanks for the great recommendation, Jack! We really enjoyed hosting you and we’re thrilled that you found our sister property, Yosemite’s Ferretti Farm, as well! We’d happily host you again any time. Safe travels, Gordon & Roni

This was the our second time staying here in the last few months. We were worried about Gordon's place (the fires were very close last month). Luckily, through some very hard of his and the local firefighters his land made it! Rudy's is fun and convenient to many other fun spots. Gordon and his wife are sweet, the pool is nice, the glamping tent is good (there is power and a little heater too).

Our little group had the best time at Rudy's Ranch! Gordon is friendly and considerate, and did everything to make sure we had a great stay. Especially loved the cozy and welcoming set up of La Rue. We will be back!

I loved everything about it. We cojldnt meet Gordon face to face since we arrived at might but he came put and said hi. We had a little fireplace (gas) set up for us and we stayed out for a bit. The tent is beatiful, a small heater was provided and the bed had plenty of blankets to keep us warm

We had an incredible stay at Gordon's place. The tipi was clean, and looked very, very cute. Wifi worked well and the tipi even had a heather and power. Downtown is within walking distance and there are some nice restaurants and there was live music when we were there on a Friday night! Highly recommend staying here. We'll come back for sure!

I had a great time staying in La Rue: beautiful decoration and very comfortable bed. Overall, Rudy Ranch was well-equipped (refrigerator, BBQ with side burner, campfire) but public spaces could have been a bit better maintained (e.g. trashcan was overflowing, BBQ dirty). However, Gordon and Roni were very accommodating hosts and made themselves available to any inquiry or request I had.

I had the best time at Gordon’s Hipcamp. La Rue was comfortable, spacious and has the most thoughtful touches. Gordon gave me great dining recommendations nearby. Thanks for having me!
