Staying here was absolutely wonderful! I stayed in one of Susan's cabins and it was exactly what I was looking for, a simple and cozy place to re-charge while exploring the area. There was a hot shower available, a whole kitchen to use and a beautiful property to explore. Susan was a great host and made sure I had everything I needed and answered all my questions asap.

Excellent Camping, Excellent Host
Chef Susan was a wonderful host to my girlfriend and I. The cabin was incredibly clean and cozy when we arrived, and she was very thorough in showing us the kitchen and bathroom. Susan is also a very providing host, and when my girlfriend and I realized we had forgotten to bring a vital ingredient to cook with, Susan kindly provided. While we didn't get much of a chance to explore the property, what we did see was gorgeous. We came for New Year's and she even invited us to hang out with her and her friends in the main house and we had a great time. Cannot recommend Susan enough.

Amazing! Will definitely be back!
My partner and I loved staying in the love shack. It was a very cozy space. The little heater works really well and kept us warm. We had the dinner and hot tub experience and we loved it. Susan is an amazing chef who puts love and effort into everything she does. She was a very good host and was very responsive to my questions.

Solitude from the city 🤍
Loved camping on Susan's property. She's a wonderful, creative host all-around *and* an excellent chef and homesteader. Definitely opt for at least one of her meals and spend some time on the back patio or take the nice nature walk. I'm planning to come back in the future for other solo retreats :)

True to its name, the Sunrise Cottage was very cozy. We spent a peaceful long weekend at the farm in November, enjoying the changing leaves and serene landscape. Susan was a gracious host and an excellent chef, serving a delicious brunch on the beautiful porch of the main house. The surrounding area has a lot to offer as well, from hiking to wandering local historic towns. 10/10, would stay again!

Great Spot for a Personal Retreat!
The love shack treehouse was the PERFECT spot for my 3 day personal retreat. Susan took care of everything, and I was welcomed into a peaceful, relaxing, clean, beautiful space with gorgeous views of the sunrise and nature. The back deck is a great spot to sit and ponder, journal, relax, meditate, star gaze, whatever you like. The bed was cozy and the tree growing in the room was an amazing bonus! Susan even gave me some home grown hibiscus tea, and it was absolutely delicious. I was fasting during my stay, but I will definitely be back to try Susan's amazing organic cuisine and enjoy this magical space some more! If you're looking for a quiet, beautiful, peaceful, interesting place to stay, look no further.

I loved getting to experience multiple locations at the Garden Goddess Farm, and really wish I'd been able to stay in the Treehouse! HOW COOL! The spaces are a little closer together than I anticipated, but each unique and sweet. The tipi is pretty magical, the Tuscan Room quite stunning in my opinion, camping on the land was lovely with deer and night critters, a little hot at the peak of the summer, but that's not unexpected!

Susan is an absolute blessing to this planet. Words cannot show the gratitude my partner and I have for her farm, cooking, conversation, kindness and infinite more. The value of our stay was so incredible. The hotel industry could take many notes on customer service from Susan. Also her on hand help, Ricky, was a major joy who take such good care of us on arrival to our departure. Do not expect luxurious amenities by any hotel standard but do expect exceptional cooking if you decide to opt in for the fresh farm brunch. Our lives are made more brilliant thanks to our decision to stay with Susan. I hope you make the journey to this joyful space.

“ We celebrated a family birthday ( 22 of us!) on the farm and Chef Susan catered for us. It was the most unique way to spend time together. We signed up for Susan’s culinary packages and did “make and take” meals and fun sauces. We were able to freeze them for our trip back home. There are several adorable campsites and accommodations. We did not want to lug camping stoves and tents so the Garden Goddess Farm handles all this for you! They even provide cozy cotton sheets! We have booked the farm for a family reunion next summer. Can’t wait!”

Delicious meals and sweet spaces!
Thank you so much to Susan and Ricki!! I felt like part of the gang when I arrived and my privacy was also respected. I booked at Garden Goddess Farm for some space to work and be a bit away! It is a lovely neighborhood setting on large parcels, with a beautiful wild canyon just below. Lovely shared deck...gongs...chickens...CUTE, sweet spaces. The shared kitchen was wonderful to have on my 10night stay! Also, Susan is an incredible cook, who puts a huge amount of love into her clean and beautiful food. Absolutely worth it! Mahalo!

Can't wait to come back
We came on one of the hottest weekends late Friday night (labor day weekend) for a quiet getaway from the city, and Susan was so kind and let us move to a different area that had more of a breeze, AND had some bites to eat waiting for us when we arrived from our 3ish hour drive. Susan puts so much heart and soul into her property, her food, and all the little touches like the personalized note on the fence to the meadow with our names on it so we could have a private picnic at dusk. She made nopales cactus flat bread, honey wine, pesto potatos and so much more. I truly enjoyed her home cooked food. She is so easy to communicate with, accommodating, kind, welcoming, and just a truly remarkable and interesting human being to talk to and learn from. The other hipcampers were friendly and easy to talk to, which was great because we shared a communal kitchen and bathrooms. Because we came near the new moon, it was easy to see the stars our first night. It's very peaceful here, and feels safe and healing. That's definitely thanks to Susan's energy and the wonderful people that help her run and organize the place. We will definitely be back for Susan's easy and friendly hospitality and the peaceful, clean, and comfortable lodging. Maybe we'll bring the dog this time 😉. Thank you again for a wonderful weekend!

Memorable anniversary at the Garden
Susan was so sweet and communicative with us. She really helped make our anniversary memorable and special with chilled champagne (brought our own champagne) glasses with dinner on the porch and the picnic at the tipi in the meadow with homemade wine! She makes really good dishes and was mindful with what we liked and disliked for food. You can tell she really wants her guests to be comfortable and relaxed. Our dog enjoyed watching the chickens and laying on the porch. Definitely would like to visit again in the fall time!

Culinary farm experience
Our stay at Garden Goddess Farm was a culinary celebration. Our kind host, Susan, warmly welcomed us to the property upon our arrival, and immediately made us feel right at home. During our stay at Garden Goddess Farm, we lodged in The Treehouse---a lovely cottage overlooking a grove of cacti and manzanitas. The lodging was very clean and well taken care of. The Treehouse earns it namesake from arboreal embellishments that casually usurp the floor to become a centerpiece for this living space. The adjoining, elevated deck also contribute to the feeling of being comfortably perched among the trees (and, is fantastic for star-gazing). In close proximity to our cozy quarters we had access to an indoor bathroom/shower facility. Throughout the property there are multiple seating areas beckoning you to take a load off, relax, and reconnect to nature. There is also a pleasant walking path that meanders around the perimeter of the property. The highlight of our stay at Garden Goddess Farm was partaking in the delicious culinary experience offered by Susan. My husband and I were toured around the property, and got to sample ripe, delicious fare straight from the garden; Muscato grapes, goji berries, and edible flowers were but a few delights. We also had the immense pleasure of enjoying a pizza-making experience with Susan for dinner, and were blown away by the fresh flavor of the natural ingredients. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Garden Goddess Farm and would definitely recommend

Mountain Farm that feels like Home.
Every part of our trip to Garden Goddess is worth writing about but I'll keep it brief. From arriving to an incredible dinner, enjoying the stars from the deck, finding much needed rest down near the tipi and culminating with brunch before we left, I would recommend this place to anyone. Both Susan and Ricki were great hosts, made us feel welcome and cooked some of the best food I've had in ages. We didn't want to leave and will absolutely be booking again.

Best retreat ever!
We are so happy that we found this place! The treehouse is amazing, the farm is beautiful and Susan really goes out of her way to make sure that her guests have an unforgettable time! From the moment we arrived till the moment we left we felt ourselves right at home. Oh, and please do yourself a favor and order all your food from Susan. We got dinner, picnic and brunch and it was the 3 best meals we’ve had in a looooong time. Book your stay while it’s available, because I know for sure we’ll be coming back soon!

Sunrise Room Bliss
The Goddess Farm is a Divine Retreat space, well care for, and tidy. There is a great loving female presence on the land and in all of the unique spaces. Everything was perfectly organized. I could feel the love and intention in my room and I had everything I needed. When exploring the priory I found the land to be deeply healing, Quiet and serene. During my stay I felt attended to by the hostesses but not overly fussed over. I ended up extending my stay and coming back shortly after!

Susan is the most amazing host!
We booked last minute because I was silly and got my dates wrong for a different campsite. Susan, our host, was in the middle of a dinner party but she left to set us up so we would have our room ready. She was so kind, generous, patient, and we had a great time. My kiddos loved the foraging and cooking class with healthy ingredients. They asked to come back asap! There is a beautiful river South Yuba River about 30 minutes away. Get there early so you can find parking!

Beautiful property with an amazing garden and gracious hostess, Susan. The Love Shack was super cute, has great views from the queen sized bed or on the deck. The bathroom and cold shower are close enough to make it an easy walk even in the dark. Easy drive to Grass Valley or Nevada City for restaurants and unique shops.

This place is a hidden gem!
My roommates and I loved staying in the love shack! It was spacious ,enough for three of us, clean, comfortable, and far enough from the main house and other guests that we felt like we were camping! Susan was wonderful - she made sure we had everything we needed and even went out of her way to provide things we had forgotten. Would absolutely recommend!
