Wow! My favorite people and I went on an adventure together and found Ravens Landing. I fell in love with it.
It's a very self sufficient ranch, so expect to be taken care of with eco conscious amenities. Compost and recycling are highlighted. Expect a fun bohemian and whimsical time being close to nature. Would 100% visit again.

Just What I Needed
Incredible hospitality that matches the views. Removed from the road giving the true feeling of being in nature while still having plenty of comfort. Great atmosphere, met many awesome people, and Ravens Landing went above and beyond for me. 10 out of 10 Thank you so much!
It was a unique place. Friendly host. Peacocks we’re cool to see. I had mixed feelings about this place because there’s not much to do around the area. We went to check out Clear Lake and was warned by the locals that the water is toxic! It gets very hot during the day and very cold at night. Last, there’s Wi-Fi but it’s $20 per group. The dining area was well maintained. Be prepared to socialize with other groups.

Friendly hosts, unique property
The host and her family were very responsive and friendly throughout the entire experience. We recommend a vehicle that is good on trails to access the property. The animals are a delight, there are Peacocks, dogs, cats! The dogs were friendly and roamed the property freely, we truly enjoyed their company and felt safe with them monitoring the area. The dogs greeted us and escorted us around the property. The dining area/large porch with overlook is separate from the inverted tree house however it was spacious, clean, and absolutely the gem of this property. The inverted treehouse suited our needs well, two people fit in the bed provided in the loft while a sleeping pad the size of a twin mattress fit well on the first floor below the loft. It accommodated 3 of us well and could have fit another person if you are okay with a tight sleeping arrangement. We brought our own mini generator which was useful for additional lighting/electricity needs. We were informed the property generator may turn off at a specific time (the host was willing to prolong the time if we were going to be up past 12 am). The kitchen area is beautiful and spacious with multiple propane stoves and all the utensils you may need. If you have limited mobility the treehouse may not be the best choice if you plan to sleep in the loft, but otherwise the stairs are more sturdy than they initially appear.

This is the coolest camping spot! We were so happy to find this. Lanya is an awesome host and all of the shared amenities were great. There are lots of friendly animals - dogs, chickens, peacocks, and even a deer named Fen! Our group is excited to go back.

Absolutely beautiful art, Layna's passion comes through with every aspect of her stunning property. She built a camp that fosters conversation and community, while still allowing for privacy and an individual experience. Absolutely lovely place for people and animals, and the burnt trees lent a surreal and otherworldly nature to this retreat from reality.

You'll want to keep it a secret!
I don't want to say honest (and amazing) things about Layna's Raven's Landing because great things are the truth, and I'd rather say things that are less than true because I rather not too many people discover it.
I don't want the secret spoiled or her land overrun the next time I have a chance to go.
It's beautiful. Layna and Rose are amazing and welcoming. The community style cooking and eating means you'll make new friends, right away. You have your choice of grill, firepit, or stove. The peacocks are loud. Fenn - the very social deer is happy to make his way into your food stores (or tent) if you're not careful. There are friendly dogs, children, and a trampoline. The views over the valley are epic no matter your vantage point - even if that's from a compost toilet. You can dunk your head in the pond. Cache Creek is 10 minutes away and makes for great river splashing. There are many epic hikes.
Raven's Landing is full of love and creativity. If you're lucky enough to go, you'll want to go back (and back, and back, and back).

Ravens Landings' Shift Pod!
Wacky and filled with wonder ✨
It’s a very special place on earth! I think you have to be a little wacky and adventurous to adore it as much as we did and that is a good thing 🙂🙃🙂 mystical and magical and Layna is super sweet and accommodating ✨ animal 🦚 🐕 🐓 love all over 💖

Great simple camping with the luxury of an open-air communal kitchen. Intermittent big wind, plenty of happy-to-travel star thistle, minimal shade, and scarce (but well managed) water, along with unpaved surfaces are all part of the raw beauty of this place and its friendly fauna. With low light pollution here, the night sky sparkles. The host is wonderful. Layna's descriptions are spot on, including the note that if you want shade, bring it with you.

Ravens Landings' Shift Pod!
I had an amazing time staying with Layna and love everything she has cultivated and built at Raven's Landing. Things really feel magical there - a deep immersion in love, beauty, and connection. Maybe not for the high-maintenance traveler, but perfect for someone like me! I will definitely be back as soon as I get a chance! <3

Unique Property and Community
What a neat space! Raven's Landing is revitalizing and upgrading since it was burnt down in 2014. The kitchen area and communal space is continually being renovated with organic and recycled materials, giving the place a homely but renewed vibe. The artwork and live peacocks (we named them Kevin 1 and Kevin 2) adds unforgettable character to the area. There are several campsite areas, some are cozy and enclosed by shrubbery while others are open to view the vast landscape. We enjoyed our enclosed space behind the garden where we could build our campfire right in front of our tent. It was convenient drive through the property and park the car near our site. Would recommend camping here for a quiet getaway or to socialize with the volunteers and landowners who plan festivals and regular outings.

Glamping with Acro and cheko
Ravens landing is a amazing gate away. Me and my friends had really
quality time up there. Ravens landing is a place where you find your self in the nature and the atmosphere up there made me realize how we forget the nature living in the city(shitty) life.

Layna and the whole crew were so welcoming! It was great to get away and just relax! This weekend getaway was just what I needed!

Creative, inspiring, expansive
We were only here for one night yet we feel a deep sense of rejuvenation as if we had traveled much further and for longer. Layna has created a very very special and place to be and experience. Every building, space and sign is handmade and unique and quirky (in the best way!). We will definitely come back!

Ravens Landing was absolutely amazing! I had a wonderful experience - Layna truly made us feel at home. The scenery is beautiful and all of the animals were so friendly. Such a unique experience and I would definitely recommend going if you get the chance! I’ll definitely be planning visits here in the future :)

We had a wonderful time at Ravens Landing ! Great place to disconnect from the busyness of life and enjoy nature. We would have loved to stay longer.
Thank you Layna and the RL crew. We’ll be back !

Relaxed, beautiful, and so fun
We had such an amazing time staying at Ravens landing. I was looking for a surprise camping trip with my girlfriend. We had such an amazing time playing with the dogs, feeding the peacocks and deer, hanging out with Layna, listening to music on the deck and gazing at the stars. I can't wait to go back again. Thank you so much Layna!!!

Great experience at a very magical spot, in the middle of nowhere. Summer days are quite hot out there - we believe that this spot is unbeatable in spring/Fall time! Thanks for having us :)

Loved the spot, the host and the peacocks. Would definitely come again!

Enchanting and unique!
Wow! Our weekend was full of delightful surprises and special moments in this well-cared for space. A kiss from a deer. A cry from a peacock. A giant poo emoji. Mysterious vibrations. Check it out yourself if you’re the open-hearted, adventurous type :)
PS: It’s very hot in the summer so I highly recommend the day trip to the magical nearby creek!
