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!

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.

Alayne and Matt were incredibly sweet hosts, and the Sweet Pepper Ranch was an adorable stay! Beautiful countryside, hiking and wineries near by, and sweet animals to boot - what’s not to love? The tent was cute and cozy, a perfect stop on my road trip!

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.

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!

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.
