Tucked away deep within the seclusion of Temecula Wine Country's picturesque mountain side, you will find The Pioneer's Penthouse at T H E I N T R E P I D W I L D. A truly one of a kind setting that caters to the nomadic spirit while appealing to the comforts of bohemian adventurers, it superbly offers peace and quiet to the seekers, the doers, and the "need a breakers" to the hikers, adventurers and simply "the need something newers" to yogis, mountain bikers, fishers, first time campers and easily any wine enthusiasts, all searching for the tranquility of the night's majestic twinkling stars, and an open landscape on which to greet the morning's magnificent sun. A {semi} Glamping experience to be enjoyed by all who venture into the wild, The Pioneer's Penthouse is a fiercely cool bohemian canvas tent strategically perched hillside amidst tall green pines, on over 10 acres of privately owned land. And for those who love a good love story, you'll really enjoy the view of the wedding ceremony site from the camping area as you can certainly still feel the love in the air from the many weddings that are hosted there at T H E I N T R E P I D W I L D.

Upon arrival, you will find a vast amount of unique amenities provided in order to help oneself completely immerse into the sights, sounds and awe inspiring feelings brought forth by nature's raw allure, disconnecting from the daily hustle and bustle, allowing life long memories to be made, new experiences to be created, and for souls to find beauty in the act of truly being present. Besides the cozy tent, amenities include an antique turn of the century cast iron cooking stove, a rustic wood ice chest and even a picnic table and hand washing station. There is a huge amount of space for some pretty epic meals to be prepared and enjoyed and many campfire tales to be told. Inside the tent you will pleasantly find a cozy bed with fresh cotton sheets, lots of throw pillows and blankets ready and waiting to provide you with a good nights sleep - a lover's bed of sorts, it sleeps 2 cozied up. Underneath, on top of or behind the bed, you will find full sized blankets, some even hand woven, to act as a mattress floor pad if you wish, allowing accommodations for children or two additional adults to be made (sheets and blankets for such arrangements can be delivered to you per prior requests). Plenty of activities await you as well, from hiking, mountain biking or horse back riding the many trails on and around the campsite, across the land, down horse trails or up to nearby mountain tops, to picnics, hot air balloon and bird watching, kite flying and star gazing, from fishing and boating at nearby Lake Skinner, Diamond Valley Lake and even Vail Lake, to wine tasting amongst Temecula's 40+ wineries - there is certainly something to do for everyone!

Two of my girlfriends and I stayed in the Pioneer's Penthouse for a quick escape from the bustle of LA. Other than the fact that it was the HOTTEST weekend of the year, we had an amazing time! Chari and Craig are wonderful hosts! When we arrived, we were happily greeted by their sweet pup Alley and a note instructing us to make ourselves at home and pointing us in the direction of the Moscow Mule ingredients that were provided to us in the vintage cooler box by the tent. Those mules were SO key and refreshing on such a hot day!

The site has a hand washing station, small charcoal grill, a vintage wood burning stove, a picnic bench and all sorts of extra odds and ends like sunscreen and bug spray in case you forgot anything!

The tent is decorated beautifully, we didn't want to touch a thing for fear of messing up how perfect everything looked! The single bed was surprisingly comfortable and the tent was stocked with plenty of blankets, a sleeping-pad, and all the essential necessities to ensure we'd have a cozy night.

You get amazing 360º views from the hilltops, and when the sun sets you'll be shocked by how many stars you can see. We had a hard time retiring to the tent for bed - we wanted to stay up all night counting shooting stars and staring up in awe!

If you're looking for a laid back glamping experience this is the place for you! Our stay was PERFECTION.

My boyfriend and I had the best time at the camp site! We watched the sun set from the top of the hills, we cooked dinner over the fire and played cards on the bed until the candles burned down. We are already planning another trip back!

Second time camping here and already planning our 3rd trip! Really cool spot and completely worth the drive from Venice Beach. The first time my husband surprised me since I had never before been wine tasting or camping and this time I got to surprise a couple of my friends with the same experience for the super moon. I had texted the owner before hand letting her know there would be four of us and Sheri went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. When we arrived there were not only piles of clean and nicely folded Mexican, hand woven and even Moroccan blankets on the bed and around the tent like the last time I came, but she had even put in several large lamb fur rugs, water bottles, little games and even provided us with a little boombox to play music. We passed her and her husband working on their fence as we left to go get ice for the cooler and they waived us down, offered us some beer (which we gladly took) and went and got ice from their freezer for us to save us a trip. We were blown away by their hospitality. Even though the campsite doesn't have a bathroom and we were prepared for that, they offered up their home's to us if we wanted. We didn't take them up on their offer, but even that kind gesture blew us away. Great spot, cool views - especially at sunset, lots of things to do and love the owners - oh and their lab puppy dog too. Thumbs up all around.

Even better than advertised! This peaceful haven is private, lush, clean, views in every direction and such a funky, rustic, bohemian vibe. Loved every second of my stay - will definitely recommend to friends.

Had an amazing experience with my family of 4 at the Pioneer Penthouse. This was the perfect spot to unplug, relax and unwind. My wife loved the tent and I enjoyed cooking dinner and breakfast over the vintage wood stove. Although the temperature was on the low side, there were plenty of blankets to keep us all warm. I recommend the sunrise view with the hot air balloons, and the sunset from the top of the hill is a must. We will definitely be coming back!

This place is a little slice of heaven! Only a few minutes drive to a plethora of wineries, but yet far enough out that you feel the silence. The set up is very cozy. We spent three days here and loved every minute of it. Please note though that as soon as the hot sun goes down it can get very cold! We luckily brought extra bedding, but they do also have some extra blankets in a chest at the location. We found we were more comfortable with a heavy comforter we brought instead. The bed very firm as it's not a real mattress. If you need a softer bed I'd recommend bringing your own blow up. Such a great place to stay! We will definitely come back.

Hipcamper Silvia

Romantic quaint little camp. Few minutes away from wineries and a great way to end the day relaxing.
Plenty of blankets and pillows available and the tent could not be more comfortable. Definitely will return!

Hipcamper Kelly

We had a wonderful time here with our golden retriever and 4 month old!

Hipcamper Rebecca

What an amazing experience! All I can do is echo the praise and joy felt by every other camper who's experienced this awesome site! Chari and her husband were the most gracious and accommodating hosts. They had endless recommendations from food, fishing, horseback riding, and where to make my husbands dream come true... where to meet some goat friends! I felt so grateful to have experienced this campsite. There are endless hiking trails, materials to make your own sage bundles, and an art area to draw/paint on the site itself. I can't recommend highly enough!

Hipcamper Kelsie Mae

It was the most magical evening and experience there ever was. Already planning my next visit!

Hipcamper Janice

Cutest little setup. 15 min drive to tons of wineries, beautiful light in the early mornings and at sunset. Chari does an incredible job making guests feel like they won't get cabin fever (tent fever?)-- hand drawn map to different areas on the property, instructions and materials to forage and make your own sage & herb bundles, etc. Really sweet personal touch! If sleeping more than 2, bring TONS OF BLANKETS to pad floor of tent as it's a hard foundation that feels more like concrete than dirt. Go with friends you are comfortable with as there are no bathrooms/ running water! :)

Hipcamper Isabel

I loved it! It did seem more like it was Glamping on the site, and ended up really being camping. I was not prepared for that, but luckily the owners were there and were very nice. They brought us everything we needed! Just know that it is camping, so no running water, etc!

Hipcamper Kelly

Amazing vibe and welcoming hosts. Chari went above and beyond to show us a warm welcome and shared a few tips and tricks . Truly a sunset atop 3 tree hill I won't soon forget ....keep the lantern on Chari- we will be back!!!
