Glamping on the Ranch
Such a sweet little spot! Cute and clean glamping tent, and Alayne was so welcoming, with use of the pool, flowers on our little porch table, and warm cinnamon rolls and coffee in the morning. 🙏

Beautiful ranch stay
Alayne and Matt were great hosts and we really enjoyed our stay. It was fun to visit with the horses, and our tent was a cozy spot for the night. Alayne left us fresh scones from a nearby bakery for breakfast as well. We really appreciated everything!

A perfect place to stay
Sweet Pepper Ranch was amazing: a cozy glamping tent in a beautiful setting, with access to a lovely pool and a shower. The beds were incredibly comfortable, and our hosts were friendly and welcoming. We loved hanging out among the horses and the family dogs.

My fiance and I stayed one night at Sweet Pepper Ranch and enjoyed the unique experience it provided. Communication was easy and Alayne provided all the information we needed for a great stay. When we arrived she was there to greet us and help us settle in. Her friend even shared some breakfast restaurant recommendations which we appreciated. The beds were super comfy and sleeping under the fresh air was delightful. I would love to stay here again.

Horses and stargazing!
Our experience at Sweet Pepper Ranch was superb! Alayne is a wonderful host. We had fun hanging out with the horses and stargazing later at night. I definitely recommend Sweet Pepper Ranch for those who love horses and want a unique glamping experience!

A Unique Glamping Experience
Alayne was a welcoming host, talking to me about her work with horses, offering a dip in their pool, and even bringing me garden vegetables. She let me feed a carrot to her sweet horse, Jasper, who was a very quiet neighbor. I heard owls and kestrels, and a far away rooster. It was a nice change from hotels and much more comfortable than tent camping.

Special place! Loved our stay!
We absolutely loved our stay at Sweet Pepper Ranch! Alayne was a kind and generous host, welcoming us and so very accommodating of our many questions about ranch life. We fell in love with the beautiful horses, and loved the glamping tent and swimming pool. Both the tent and ranch are exceeded expectations on cleanliness.

Glamping on a Horse Farm
This was by far the fanciest HipCamp we’ve stayed at while driving coast to coast. The glamping tent was beautiful and located adjacent to the riding ring. While our hosts were nearby, we had plenty of privacy. We also travel with two kids and a dog. The kids loved the horses and the swimming pool! My husband was able to use the WiFi to work as well. Alayne and Matt were the best hosts!! We enjoyed chatting with them and learning about their farm. We can’t wait to return to Sweet Pepper Ranch!

Sweet Pepper Ranch glamping experience was a real treat! The host was welcoming and very hospitable. Their ranch was very impressive. The bed was comfortable. Just 20 minutes away from wine country! Couldn’t ask for more. This place should be featured in a magazine.
