Stay in one of our private, fully furnished platform tents (sleep in an antique bed) and enjoy the gorgeous mountain views from your own front porch. Orr Hot Springs is just up the road or take a very special hike through a protected redwood forest at Montgomery Woods. Breathe into the peaceful surroundings and see stars like you've never seen them before. Our fur babies will happily greet you with some dog kisses while we show you to your tent. Fresh pure well water is also provided at no charge. We're a working lavender farm and you're welcome to participate in whatever we're doing during your stay. Please plan on checking-in before 8pm, we work hard and really need our sleep! :) Hope to see you soon!

Places to see near Running Springs Ranch
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Running Springs Ranch is a beautiful and well-cared for property and hosts Steffny and Alan were helpful and charming. Our tent (#2) was cozy and we enjoyed a fantastic night of stargazing followed by an evening of fog characteristic of Northern California. The bathroom and sink for dish washing are part of the main house and were very clean. We’d love to return for another stay!
Such a beautiful place! Well-maintained tent with great views. The hosts are super friendly and helpful. My puppy had so much fun exploring and playing with steffny’s dogs. Thank you so much!
Wonderful getaway trip!!!
We were so lucky that the people before canceled the trip and we managed to book it last minute. Everything about this place is so cute and perfect. The tent is very seclusive and clean. The guest bathroom is super clean as well. Alan and Nick were really friendly to us and Blue (the dog). We will definitely come back again!!
My partner and I had an incredible time Glamping on the farm. It was a super cozy setup and perfect way to escape the city life.
Alan and Steffny are super friendly and welcoming. Incredible smell of lavender. Everything was kept incredibly clean.
The directions provided are super useful, but our GPS mapped us perfectly too.
Can't wait to return!
Wake up to mtn mist & lavender
This was a very special spot to explore my hometown after being away for nearly a decade. Tent 2 is a walk from the bathroom but gives you privacy and blackberries to pick along the way. The tent is well appointed with antiques and a very comfortable bed, and the view waking up was breathtaking. The smell of lavender is in the air and the hosts Steffny and Alan were wonderful.
Steffny's glamping tent was the perfect way to ease into our camping trip. The tent was nestled in the woods and looked out upon a rolling hill vista, quiet and serene. At night, the milky way appeared, and could be seen from the comfy bed.
The lavender fields were a treat to smell and wander through.
Magical place to land with thoughtful attention to detail.
We'll be back!
Spectacular star gazing!
We had an absolutely beautiful time at Steffny's place. The stars were spectacular, the grounds lovely, super easy to find, lovely hosts (who were mindful of our privacy). Everything was immaculate and clean. Such a relaxing time in beautiful nature without the hassle of a tent or sleeping mattress. Blackberries abounding and if you love bird watching you will not be disappointed. We also loved the furry friends who were part of the compound.
The only thing to watch out for if you book Tent #2, is the fairly steep walk up to the bathrooms and the fresh water. Alan will give you a ride with your gear when you get there, but it's best if you bring a large water container with you so you don't have to trek back and forth for water. They were kind enough to provide us with a jug but it's best to bring your own.
Will definitely come back!
Steffny's place is a literal dream. Frolic through the lavender fields? Yep. Camp under the stars and wake up with breathtaking vista views? Check, check. All that, and the ease and comfort of a full bathroom, hot shower and the calming smell of lavender all day.
We will definitely be back - in fact, I almost didn't write this review because I am tempted to keep this gem of a HipCamp all to myself. But alas, here you are. It's a 10/10 for me folks.
