We had a really great time! My husband and I brought our dog and had a romantic weekend at this mountain top stay with a view. The view was amazing and they had a fire ring with chairs for us to enjoy at night! They also had a nice box full of items we could use like lanterns, playing cards, and more! Overall we had a wonderful time and we would come again!

Amanda's Mountain Top Stay was superb!!! It was very private, with outstanding views of the mountains and the valley floor below. The sunset was gorgeous as well in their private pad which Amanda had thoughtfully furnished with a couple of adirondack chairs and a fire pit. We brought our wine and enjoyed nature's show. Last, but certainly not the least, Amanda provided a box of essentials one can possibly need: skewers, umbrella, lighter fluid, lighter, nightlamp, first aid kit, playing cards, paper towels, wine glasses, wine opener, dishwashing liquid and sponge, paper plates, cups, cutlery, water bottles, a blanket and a hand sanitizer. That was indeed so thoughtful and sweet. Thank you so much!!! One should definitely check their site out. Thank you again Amanda!!! It was nice meeting you and Nick. Have a great weekend!!!

We loved staying at Amanda's campsite! The view is incredible. It's a short drive to Murphys if you want to do some wine tasting. Amanda had a nice set up with a fire pit and a supply box with some extras, like a lighter, paper plates, first aid kit, and more! The site felt private and we had a wonderful time. Amanda stopped by to say hi and also supplied some bug spray when I asked. Thank you!

I would 100% return to Amanda's place!

The photos really don’t do this place justice! Truly beautiful views. My camp mate said he felt like this was a destination at the end of a long hike but with the convenience of driving there. Amanda was an incredible host as well. Not hovering at all but so incredibly helpful. Easy enough to park our 26 ft RV and enough room to pop a tent up to boot. We came when the flowers were in bloom and it was totally picturesque.
