Magical, homey creekside nook
We had a wonderful stay with our family. The creek kept our kids busy, as did the ripe plums. Hosts were welcoming and responsive, and have given a lot of thought to creating a welcoming space with fire pit, comfy tent platform, table and chairs, cooking nook, sink for washing dishes and delicious well water. We especially enjoyed evenings under the chandelier. A great base camp for day trips to the Yuba river and Tahoe. Highly recommend!
This little camp site was SO perfect for us! It’s tucked away in an old plum grove of sorts, with wild blackberries all around. Even though it’s not too far from the main house, it feels very private and cozy.
There’s a tiny little stream that runs right through it which was a huge hit with my young kids.
The tent platform is spacious for a good sized tent, and there’s a couple flatter spots for another tent or two.
The hosts were very kind and accommodating, and helpful with any questions we had. We’ll definitely be back!
Really easy to get to location but isolated and nature-hugged locale... all the key conveniences like a real shower to get off the g daily grime and a gas grill to quickly cook up the daily catch but with the lull of a babbling brook, a chorus of newt ribbits, and a great view of tree-scape and stars. Magical place!
Charming camping experience
This site was amazing. It was charming and mystical. The path into the site was laced with sweet, adorable details and opened it a cove of greenery and magic. Their was a babbling brook that had a perfect soothing tone as we camped and slept under the twinkling lights they had laced through the site, including a beautiful chandelier. The grounds were filled with gardens,and had little paths to walk and discover nature’s beauty. The lake was 10 minutes away by car and so were stores and Starbucks but it didn’t feel like that when you were in the campsite as it felt like you were deep in the woods. Isaac was a great host who stayed in communication and was there anytime we needed anything. We will be back again and again!
This is an ideal camping spot. Beautiful, one of a kind, with a burbling brook, open meadow, gorgeous gardens, and sweet touches everywhere!
From the strings of lights in the trees to the pillow and tables set up in the shade, we could not have asked for anything better! Will definitely be back. Isaac was an amazing gracious host. This in an inspirational stay!
Private and lovely
Isaac, the host, couldn’t have been nicer. Their property is beautiful. There’s total privacy in the camp spot with a large plywood platform to put your tent on. The small creeks adjacent to the camping platform provide a soothing backdrop while sleeping. Isaac and his family have a lush garden with many vegetables and fruit trees, which provides an nice area to look at while cooking meals. There is a bathroom and an outdoor kitchen area with a BBQ grill. I definitely hope to return in the future.
