Greetings Nature Lovers!

We had an amazing 1st season, filled with amazing peeps who all contributed to making us lucky #12 in Cali!

First, I'd like to Thank all of the Hipcamper's whom have chosen to make us part of their travels and journey! A BIG thank you, for all the love and respect you brought with you here; all the yummies shared with the animals; the many treasures you gifted me, including just with your presence; but most importantly, all the little special touches that you felt compelled to leave behind for your fellow Hipcamper's next to visit!

You've all warmed my heart, and make me proud of what beautiful humans you are!

...and why I ALWAYS say: I HAVE THE BEST HIPCAMPERS!!!!

You guys rock, and big love from me to you! xo

This season, we have a awesome new upgraded 12 x 12 Tee Pee tent that will be up soon w/pix to come!

We are so grateful to have visitors who not only care about nature, but also the animals; many who come for that reason…to support the animals at Pixie’s Place.

Our goal is to make you as comfortable as possible, so you feel like your visiting friends/family. This is not a party house, it's not a playground or park. We offer a spiritual communion with animals and nature :)

Energetically speaking, this area is an energy vortex, with Native American Indian spirits tied to the history of the land. The river bed is slabs of quartz and granite, making the river and my property a very healing experience.

UFO’s frequently inhabit the pulsating canopy of night sky.

Shamanic Healing sessions are available to book.

Please feel free to message me with questions, or requests :)

(Important for me to know your ETA so that I'm sure to be here to guide you around and introduce you to the animals :)

I look forward to making your experience as special as you are!

We are a 420 friendly, artist/writer/shamanic/Hipcamp retreat. 

(We also offer a Quantum Healing Shamanic Retreat, which is available to city dwellers through: CrystalSoundQuantumHealing.com.)

We are located at the entrance to Sequoia Nat'l Park/Lake Kaweah, in the village of Three Rivers, CA (Central Cali; between Bakersfield (1 hour and 40 min) and Fresno (1 hour and 10 min.); 30 min up the hill, above Visalia). 3 hours N.E. from L.A.

(IGNORE GPS FROM SO CAL IF IT TELLS YOU TO TAKE THE 5 TO THE 99 TO THE 65. CORRECT DIRECTIONS ARE: 5 TO THE 99 TO 198/VISALIA AND TAKE IT STRAIGHT UP THE HILL PAST THE LAKE. AS YOU ENTER THREE RIVERS, THE 198 BECOMES 198/SIERRA DR. THIS WILL TAKE YOU RIGHT TO OUR STREET JUST AFTER YOU ENTER 3R).

This listing offers: 1956 11 ft Aluminum "Rainbow" Trailer available for 2 people, with access to the Chalet toilet. Please note: ONLY ONE-TWO people (no pets allowed inside) as it is a 63 year old trailer, I like to treat her gently...lol.

The quaint trailer sits within a permaculture garden at the front of the property, closer to the road; however it is very private, and subdued. There is a Chiminea to cook with or to enjoy sitting in front of for warm when needed. There is an assortment of vintage garden furniture to create a fun outdoor living space!

In addition to the Shamanic Retreat, we offer a camping spot down in a lower area on the 3/4 of an acre property (see listing for details). The main chalet sits above, with a corral and Sanctuary Reading shed in between. The South Fork of the Kaweah River is at the back of the property with a very "sweet" swimming hole to enjoy as long as the water is flowing down the river as it is seasonal depending on drought conditions. However, mid May-late June it's perfect!

I limit the activity here by having only 2 listings; limited to a total of 4 total guests on the property possible between the two listings.

The property is not kid friendly, and is not really here for children as much as it is offered for the inner child in adults. WE ARE 420 friendly which is in opposition to most "family" landscapes....so please note this is not personal but I prefer no children xo

Also, I prefer no pets, as it disrupts the balance here with the animal residents :)

There may be a retreat being held or not; if there is a retreat, we will have a drum circle if it's a Friday evening; Saturday evening we screen the New Media/Experimental film I made which screened last November in London at Cinema Magic. The animals of Pixie's Place were actors in the film, along with many of the scenes filmed here.

 You are welcome to join us, if you'd like:)

 Everything works a little bit like a bed and breakfast; a non pretentious environment that supports the animals, self healing; and the enjoyment of sharing this sacred spot I have created.

There is a BBQ grill available for campers to use, along with a fire pit (when Fire Bans are not in place). Plenty of wood to harvest on property or the Village Market up the road.

Feel free to invest in the vegetable garden; help yourself to any available fruit, as well as the abundant fresh Rosemary & Lavender.

Your bookings support the animals whom you can interact with. 

We have "Pixie Emelia Aurora" aka "Pea" our mascot; a 10 year old Nubian goat. Siddartha Cloudwalker a Nigerian Dwarf, along with his son, Sage Lyrid Ray, born here on Earth Day 2012!

There are many cats, who each have their stories of how they found their way to Pixie's Place, including bad boy mustang "Hermes Inyo Ray" who is down the street and loves meeting new people!  We take on who we can; assuring all creatures a place they can live, be loved and accepted for their "issues" until the cross the rainbow bridge xo

I am an animal communicator, artist and shamanic practitioner: crystal sound healing, and soul coaching (BMI recording artist; SAG member)

Thank you for being a part of this journey!

Wendi is a wonderful host and was so welcoming from the start! Her animals are all so sweet, especially the friendly cats. This hipcamp site was very calming and perfect for our weekend trip to Sequoia NP. Be sure to check out the stars at this site--they were incredible! Thank you for everything Wendi!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Wendi, her sweet animals, and her magical property. My boyfriend and I had a beautiful time at Pixie’s Place. The trailer was so cozy and thoughtfully equipped and the bathroom inside Wendi’s home was a welcome luxury. Although the river was dry during our visit, Slick Rock is so close and a great spot for a dip. Wendi’s place is also convenient to the National park and the sweet little village of Three Rivers. Our highlights were watching the stars nightly, loving on all the sweet cats, and listening to Wendi’s fascinating stories and wisdom. We cannot wait to return :)

Vintage Rainbow Garden is exactly as described. The camper is well decorated, comfortable and Wendi did her best to make it cool during our summer stay. Wendi is an accommodating host and the cats will most likely come say, " hello." This was a great spot to stay for my trip to Sequoia NP. Cell reception was great and I was able to get WiFi, if you are interested in being connected. Read all the directions carefully of what is provided so you know what to expect and what to bring. Wendi is very clear in her directions.

My boyfriend and I were on the road for a few weeks, visiting some of the most beautiful places in the country. Still, staying at Wendi's was our favorite part of the trip! She was great about communicating with us days before our trip, making sure we knew exactly how to get to her place. I felt like I knew her before we even got there! Thanks to her instructions, her place was easy to find. We were warmly greeted by Wendi and two of the cutest, sweetest cats! She showed us around the property- the gorgeous flowing river with cute gardens, benches and a hammock, all to ourselves. The charming trailer and relaxing, private space around it. And the goats! We absolutely loved the goats- especially the baby, Bowie!
Wendi is a kind, generous, easy going and fun host! She was available as much we wanted while still giving us privacy. This was a special place, I would have stayed longer. I will definitely make it a point to visit again. Thanks for everything Wendi!

We had an incredible stay at Wendi's! The level of hospitality was outstanding, everything we could possibly need was available to us. We especially loved the outdoor space, coming back from hiking up in Sequoia and Kings Canyon it was wonderful to be able to relax outside and see the animals. The trailer itself was comfortable, clean, and clearly very loved. Wendi was a wonderful host, I would absolutely recommend this stay for anyone who loves the outdoors but wants something quieter and more unique than a traditional campsite. We feel so lucky to have gotten to experience this place.

This place was absolutely what we needed in every sense of the word. Wendi was truly such an amazing host, and I definitely would stay here again in the future. She was so thoughtful, intentional, and mindful of us as guests.

The property is such a hidden gem, and there are different parts of the yard you can utilize. The river in the back was especially magical. We decided to skinny dip in the river, and I had such an amazing connection with the outdoors.

We also spent a decent portion of our time in Sequoia National Park. The entrance to get to the park was like 15 minutes down the road, and to get to the Giant Forest and such, it was a little over an hour.

The animals were so wonderful too. Loved the goats and cats!

We had a wonderful time at Pixies Place. Wendi is the consummate host, and has a spiritual energy which will stay with me for a long time. Her little trailer was perfect for my friend and me; Wendi made sure it was prepared so we could sleep two comfortably without sharing the small bed. The rescued cats and goats on the property were welcoming and a pure joy to be around. Wendi has made her property a whimsical paradise, and it is naturally backed by the beautiful river. We ate breakfasts at the rivers edge, took a short trip to the Sequoias and pretty much stayed by the trailer enjoying the starry nights and sunny days. We will definitely return if Wendi will have us! Highly recommended !!!! Thank you Wendi! Sandy and Berta
