Birder's sunrise delight
We were confused when we arrived at the location, Angela was not able to meet us at our ETA and we had not received any host directions to our site. Luckily we had cell service and Angela responded quickly to our text with clear directions to our camp site. We only had one night to spend here during our month long road trip here. It would be nice to spend more time and explore Los Olivos and Solvang and then escape the tourists for a quiet night on the ranch. It's a sunny site so if you bring a shade canopy of some sort it would be helpful, we were able to sit in the shade of our camper van and there was a nice breeze up on the high bluff. The view is stunning and situated for a good sunrise. It's a popular spot for birds, several mountain bluebirds visited us and perched on the fence post right outside our van window. Angela gave a great tour of the animals, this is a working ranch! Horses, goats, chickens, ducks, turkeys, cows, and more! We adults enjoyed seeing the animals but this would be particularly nice for kids to experience. Don't miss Ferdinand the Bull!
The perfect spot!
Angela’s place is amazing! The views and animals are just what you need to refresh the soul!! The sites are spaced out far apart and are very clean. Close to downtown for wine tasting, but far enough to enjoy the privacy of the farm. My family and I will definitely be back..
Beautiful mountain view
What a beautiful view! We enjoyed visiting the horses. The host is incredibly nice and accommodating, but let us have privacy. We will definitely consider stopping here on our travels in the future!
The site could not have been more beautiful! Expansive vistas, clean facilities (restroom and shower up in the barn, a short walk from the site), and sweet farm animals abound (goats, chickens, turkeys (!), and horses!). It was the perfect escape. Very quiet, beautiful sunsets, and great stargazing. Close to town, where there are cute restaurants, shops, and wine tasting galore! Angela was so warm and welcoming. Couldn't recommend this site more highly!
