Welcome to our little slice of 10 acre heaven in the Canyon!  Just bring yourself and we have everything else!!  Nestle up in the Cozy Gnome Home, a 1967 vintage trailer and listen to the symphony of frogs in the creek just outside your window.  With love and labor... we gutted, redesigned and restored this little trailer for the ultimate functioning space for two.  Nice lit


Welcome to our little slice of 10 acre heaven in the Canyon!  Just bring yourself and we have everything else!!  Nestle up in the Cozy Gnome Home, a 1967 vintage trailer and listen to the symphony of frogs in the creek just outside your window.  With love and labor... we gutted, redesigned and restored this little trailer for the ultimate functioning space for two.  Nice little kitchen with copper counters and everything you need for cooking and dining.  A Berky filter for clean water, hardwood floors and a comfy bed complete with organic mattress, down comforter and cotton sheets.  Fold out dining table if you care to (or need to) eat indoors. There is also an outdoor kitchen space with a sink (no hot water), gas grill, propane burner (bring your own small canister) and a patio table and chairs. We have a charcoal grill available too. The creek runs year round so feel free to get your feet wet on a hot sunny day.  We also have an outdoor warm shower and sink as well as a hot water kitchen sink that you can share with other campers.  You are welcome to cruise the property and check out the chickens, ducks and horses.  We have three dogs on the ranch, a deaf and incredibly sweet pitbull ( he is a food thief so store food and garbage as though raccoons were a problem), a curious and playful ranch dog Pluto (who will be your tour guide) and a new pup Boston Bulldogge, Astrid.  We are surrounded by orchards which have some of the best apples and pears in the country.  Seasonally you can stop by many apple markets and do a tasting.  We also have a lively wine tasting venue less than a mile away.  Avila Beach is a short 4 miles away and we are happy to share bikes if we have them available but can't guarantee any.  Our location is a bikers' dream as the 13 mile scenic road takes you all the way into SLO.

NOTE:  If you want to bring others to camp, please note that they need to bring their own tents and supplies, we only have room for two but welcome self sufficient campers to join you :) also, we have a camp stove you can use to cook on but bring your own little green propane canister.

My partner and I just finished a week long road trip up the coast of CA. This property was one of the highlights of the entire trip! We had the pleasure of meeting Iorna and her family, they are so kind and welcoming. We will definitely be back and would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing and down to earth stay.

Such a gorgeous property -- very peaceful, good energy, lots to explore. Love the location as well, it only took us about 15 mins to get to DT SLO and there were many outdoors adventures within a short drive from the property.

Paul and his family were great and we felt very welcomed! Would definitely recommend this to a friend and can't wait to go back and visit.

We loved staying at Lorna's place! It's so close to major attractions in Avila, Pismo, and SLO. The outdoor shower was awesome and the trailer was big and cozy. Husband is 6'6" and he was very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful hideaway. Camper was well appointed, organized and comfortable. Good ceiling clearance, comfortable bed and stovetop. Grounds are really cool, warm/welcoming atmosphere to all. Gem of a location; beach, downtown, vineyards all nearby. Highly recommended and would love to stay here again.

Extremely cozy and comfortable place to stay. The location was so close to the beach but felt so off the beaten path. The outdoor shower was very fun as well. I would absolutely return to stay here again!

Lorna’s homestead was AMAZING! The RV was adorable and super cozy and the land around it was incredibly serene. Loved the outdoor shower and getting to explore the canyon around the property. Orchards, wineries, bike trails etc. the location was awesome, too. Right down the road from Avila beach and SLO. I would love to come back with friends and share the property with them! Highly recommend.

The Cozy Gnome Home was the perfect spot for my weekend getaway with my cousin! We loved stargazing on the property and enjoyed playing with Pluto the dog. This was a great location for hiking and going to the beach. Thank you so much for having us!

What a great stay we had!
Lorna has a very cute and comfortable place away from hustle and bustle of city life. We and our daughter had so much fun with very intelligent and energetic Pluto. He led us to this little forest where he would climb this tall and amazing tree, we were just in awe!
