A delightful forest retreat
The Organic Farmhouse was a truly enjoyable place to visit! My family and I loved exploring the beautiful and well maintained hiking trails, and snacking from the garden on our return. The creek pools are relaxing and lovely places to sketch or get lost in a book. Surrounded by the sounds of water and birds and the wind through the forest, it could sometimes feel as though we were miles from anywhere, but we were a convenient driving distance to town, and a top-notch grocery store. Highly recommend unwinding here!
Oh man, what can I say - “water, land, (nature in general!) meets luxury” - could not be more true. Felt the abundance of the farm at every meal. kids asked to harvest, and harvey and harvest again! Pristine waters were incredibly healing, and the dirt roads and 4wd added to the adventure. Feels like a secret, that I don’t want to share!!! Yes it’s that special! Cabin was perfect for our family of 5.
Appreciated seeing a summer camp and other visitors in the garden. Alicia was a great host, communicative and helpful, especially during the fires (20+ miles away) that broke out during our stay. We got to enjoy our last full day but got smoked out early on our last day.
the organic farmhouse let us really enjoy and take in the beauty of nisamen land. Booking our spring getaway now.
Truly unique experience
We weren't sure what the crowds or COVID rates would be like this summer when we were booking our vacation so this seemed like an ideal option. The property is very secluded and has private water access, hiking trails etc. We picked fresh fruits and vegetables for our meals every day. The layout of the house was perfect with kids because the sleeping area was on a different level from where we hung out in the evenings after they went to bed.
Beautiful setting, our group had a great time lazing by the private creek, swimming in the Yuba river, and hiking the trails around the property, so many activities to choose from. Organic garden was a wonderful bonus with fresh berries and greens. Will definitely come back. Recommend a car with clearance for the short drive to the Yuba river.
This is a a truly special place. The Farmhouse was comfortable and spacious with wonderful design touches. The grounds with the gardens and hammock we were relaxing, and provided delicious fresh greens for dinner. The multiple trails around the grounds are well maintained, clearly signed and give the feeling on being on secret treasure hunts, with ease built in. We were grateful for the benches to sit and take in the views and the steps to make the rock hops down to the creek and river accessible. Alicia was always responsive to questions and generous with her information. As was Scott, the garden manager. It was a restorative getaway after this past year and I am so grateful for the care we felt in the space. Thank you for offering this wonderful place!
The Organic Farmhouse was a fantastic getaway! The cabin had everything we needed for a 4 day stay. We loved hiking around the property every day. The trails are all very accessible and led to fantastic watering holes. There are also lots of activities to do. There's a basketball court near the farmhouse, archery equipment, pickle ball set, and 2 friendly farm cats. Definitely looking forward to coming back in the summer!
