If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
the land is beautiful, but I was given a space next to a pile of wood chips. From the communication before it felt I was not expected to be welcomed or find any help so I felt hesitant reaching out to the farm manager. She seemed overwhelemed by having to find another spot for me. Eventually we managed to find a spot that worked out nice. It just didnt feel very welcoming and I feel that $100 is quite expensive.
We had a wonderful stay at the ranch! Lisa was super helpful and accommodating when we needed a last minute place to camp. The view was gorgeous and the sheep were adorable.
This was a beautiful, easily accessible yet private campsite, with gorgeous views and lots of sunshine. The bathroom was pristine and the overall property stunning and welcoming. We would definitely camp here again! Lisa was the perfect host.
Spectacular 360 degree views! love!
This place is absolutely spectacular. 360-degree views of some of the most gorgeous land we've ever laid eyes on. The hosts are incredibly friendly (and so are the cows!) We spent two nights here and wish we'd booked many more. There is a large, clean, and well-stocked port-a-potty along with a picnic table and we found flat ground to pitch a tent easily. We were allowed to roam the property (as long as the electric fencing was secured) and there are some lovely hills to stroll. There is WiFi by the barn, and even some swings to embrace your inner child on. Highly recommend! A+++
Beautiful farm in remote bay area
We stayed on a meadow area adjacent to a eucalyptus grove. Oriented north/south we had beautiful views on both sides. You’re surrounded by lush rolling green hills. It’s very private and peaceful. Also good sun exposure if you’re using solar. If you’re looking for some privacy and a sense of nature, it’s a great spot. Only about 20 minutes or so from the 101 and a few minutes from the 1. Lisa and the farm manager Katie were very attentive.
