PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE LISTING FOR AN ACCURATE PICTURE OF THE CAMPING EXPERIENCE. This is not "glamping."

THERE IS A COMPOST TOILET. Please review the rules for this. It is similar to an outhouse but different.

This site includes it's own private hot tub! You will get a view of Mount Palomar, Temecula Valley and the Sunset as the hot tub is on the South West side of the property.

You also have the only site with shade on the entire property.

IF you have more than 3 people (this includes your children) we have other sites on our property that you are welcome to book. While this is not glamping, this site is very different from our other sites on property (please refer to "High Desert Look Out & Baby Goats!" especially if you have a big tent or more than 3 people).

This is a smaller site. Only intended for 1 tent (max diameter of 12') I only allow up to 3 people at this site. No exceptions (please do not message me asking to make exceptions to this rule, look at my other listing) as this site is smaller and does not have room for a large tent or multiple tents and this is not a family friendly site. It is meant to be more intimate. Most of it is on a slope except for where the tent and hot tub will be.

This site will NOT accommodate trailers or RVS. People do have roof top tents and those are ok at this site. You have to be able to back up to get out of the site.

You can see the sunrise over the mountains and the sunsets are usually spectacular! In the morning around 6:30-7:00am you can see hot air balloons lift off from the wineries in Temecula Valley on the west side of the property.

Play with my Nigerian Dwarf Goats (they are a miniature breed) and their babies! You can hear my roosters crow in the morning (and at night!! Roosters have no respect for quiet time. If this bothers you, bring ear plugs. We sell good quality wax ear plugs for $2/pair)

We have firewood, ice, charcoal, water and other items available for purchase. We are not a commercial farm. This is closer to a homestead, run by two people who have full time jobs that pay the bills. Your $65/night does not pay the mortgage on 11 acres in wine country. We don't have staff or workers. Everything is done by us. We have about 40 trees on the property, the majority of which are California Pepper Trees, or pink peppercorn. We are not a commercial hot pepper grower. We don't sell produce to campers. We are 25 minutes away from any stores. We accept cash, PayPal or Venmo on site.

It is so quiet you can hear the crow's wings flapping as they fly by. You may see field mice, Barn owls, rabbits, squirrels, road runners, small lizards, coyotes and other desert animals. This does include the occasional snake. We have recently discovered a family of Kangaroo Rats has made their home here which we are very excited about as they are endangered. (They are not actually related to rats but to gophers despite the name)

We also have new neighbors and typically around sunset you will get to hear one of their children practice the trumpet and have band practice with the trumpet and drums. They are very dedicated but band practice only lasts 1-2 hours. We love to support hobbies like this in the local youth!... Yes, we wish we could turn it off too but it's better than death metal

For current, local events that may be of interest follow us on Facebook where I share news/events from Temecula wineries. Just look for "Bierbaum Pepper Farm."

We are less than 15 minutes away from Temecula Wine Country with over 50 wineries in the area. We can tell you which are dog friendly as we go to those often.

Lake Skinner and French Valley Wildlife Preserve are 15 minutes away.

Diamond Valley Lake is 30 minutes away and is a great hike to see desert wild flowers when they are blooming in the spring. It is famous for the Super Bloom that you could see from space! I highly suggest you Google it.

We have a fire pit at the campsite when there is no fire ban but you MUST check out a fire extinguisher and review the fire safety rules before using the fire pit.

There is a charcoal BBQ grill in the common area that is available. Bring your own charcoal or purchase a bag from us. DO NOT use firewood in the charcoal grill.

We have a common area/garden where you can sit with a beer or watch the sunrise with coffee. This includes a picnic table and other outdoor seating. This campsite is the closest site to the common area where other campers congregate.

We also have a drinking water fountain and mobile charging station in the common area for your phones. WiFi is available in the common areas. It may extend to your site but no guarantees.

Keep in mind that the price reflects the amenities here. This is not glamping but it is a step above the other primitive campsites that we offer on the property.

We are in wine country and charging $65/night. A room out here is no less than $200/night in the off season (average cost is $350+). This is for the experienced camper that doesn't need or want amenities. This is camping, not glamping. We are happy to host first time campers. Just make sure you talk to experienced campers first to understand what it's really like.

For first time campers, this site is the closest site to the house which will give an added sense of security.

We limit the number of campers and sites on the property so you can enjoy your experience with peace and a sense of solitude. There are only 7 camp sites on 11 acres so that you can spread out and enjoy the peace without being over crowded. You will be able to see the campers and other camp sites but they are far away. This is desert landscape. I cannot plant a forest in the desert.

We have a solar shower! The temperature of the water depends on how much sun we get that day so early morning showers will be cold! Check the temperature of the water before stepping under because it can get very hot or cold! Also realize the hot water is limited and it will take a couple hours before it will heat up again between showers. Showers will only be warm for 5-7 minutes.

PLEASE REVIEW THE RULES FOR THE COMPOST TOILET.

True campers leave no trace behind. Clean up after yourselves and be respectful of our home. Only bring guests who can do the same.

This place was great. The main attraction when booking was the hot tub (which was great - views of sunrise and sunset), but there was so much more packed in. There were the goats and bunnies to visit, hammocks with a mister, games all around, and every tiny added touch. I would definitely recommend and plan to visit again.

This is a great place! We loved the space and having the private jacuzzi. Marcella was amazing. We did the cheese tasting and all of them were delicious. The frozen yogurt was to die for. Ill definitely be going back.

It's a lot to put into words, just trust me, this is a camping experience of a lifetime!... I will definitely be returning... thank you Marcella for a wonderful weekend at your beautiful property, with adorable animals, and amazing food (I forgot to mention the amazing variety of peppers!). We hope to see you again soon!! :)

This was the perfect little getaway for my friend and I. Marcella was an amazing host and made us feel very welcomed. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Amazing view of the stars and she even had hammocks out for us and the hot tub was a nice added touch. Great experience!

We really loved our time here, so much so that we stayed an additional day. My daughter and I loved feeding the goats, and eating MANY scoops of the delicious goat milk frozen yogurt. The land and vistas are beautiful, and we enjoyed the company of the hosts very much.

Marcella was awesome! She has truly thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. There are hammocks, games, corn hole and ladder ball - all available in the common area. The compost toilet was extremely clean and there are two hand washing stations on site, which was an added bonus. The baby goats are super cute! We even tried goat cheese and frozen yogurt- so fresh! We bought some to take home with us. It was amazing! The private hot tub was awesome at sunset. Thanks for a great stay! We will definitely be back!
