The vibe at Secluded Mountain Hideaway
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
My fiacnée and I stayed here on the last day of April, when the grass was lush and the temperature was perfect. We were greeted as planned by Vince, who is extremely friendly, warm and welcoming; all the characteristics you look for in a host for this sort of thing. He escorted us up a 15 mile dirt road to his property, which involved wiggling up the canyon passing large oak trees and picturesque hills and pastures. Cows were free to roam along the road and creek which ran parallel on the right, so it felt like a 'cow safari' for lack of a better term.
I was concerned about our VW Jetta making it up this road but it was completely fine.
We setup on one of Vince's few options to camp with the fire pit clean and ready for our use. We spent the day playing cards by our tent and walking down along the creek that borders his property. That night the stars were extremely impressive capping what was a great and quick getaway from LA!
We will be back!
Vincent met us at the gate of the ranch. We drove 15miles on a well-graded dirt road across outstanding California rolling hills landscape. We set our camp at site 1 under the shade of two big trees. The sites have chairs and a picnic table for you to use.
Nearby there is a creek running with ice cold water. When the sun is high and the temperature rises the creek is a great place to chill.
Make sure you get dinner before or after sunset, you will want to spend time just contemplating the outstanding color gradients on the surrounding hills when the sun goes down.
Light pollution is inexistent at night and you will be able to enjoy great dark skies.
There is a clean bathroom with running water for the campers to use.
Vincent is welcoming and always willing to help. We had a great time and we enjoyed the opportunity to drive through Tejon Ranch to stay at this gem.
We will definitely come back!
This truly is a secluded mountain hideaway! After meeting Vince, who is one of the best humans around, you'll drive well into the mountains before reaching his property which is nestled between two ranges and a lovely creek. I'd recommend setting up camp at the creek spot for a little more seclusion and water access, but the others do have a better view of the mountains, sunrise and sunset. The property is animal friendly but watch out for wildlife -- especially snakes. There's plenty of hiking available -- some more advanced than others. No matter what, you'll have a peaceful getaway in a truly magical, spiritual place.
This was a great place for a relaxing evening under the stars. Vince was a gracious and helpful host and the setting was a peaceful retreat into nature. I will definitely be recommending to my friends and returning soon- thank you Vince!
