Pinky's Bunkhouse is one of 3 artisanal accommodations located on Birdsong Backcountry Retreat which is a private nature reserve in remote area of San Diego County and is sited on an 85 acre private nature reserve.  It has a full kitchen, spacious living room, fenced yard for pets, large deck and hot tub sited for star gazing, and  firepit seating which overlooks the forest to distant mountains. We offer miles of private trails and most popular things to do in the area are hiking, wine tasting, and exploring this beautiful area. Sleeps 3-4 people but the "Lounge" vintage Spartan trailer which is located behind the bunkhouse can be rented to sleep an additional 2-3 people.  The Lounge is only available to bunkhouse guests.  If you like Pinky's but it is not available,  you may like one of our sister sites   "Bluebird Tiny House " , "Camp Chester" and 5 star "Camp Ribbonwood Safari Tent". 

We provide guests the opportunity to really get away from it all in a untouched forest and chaparral setting as weak as the amenities one needs for a comfortable stay.  In addition, we have developed 2 forest therapy trails that will bring your ability to slow down and connect to nature to a whole new level and encourage you to try it using our MP3 audio guide..

We had a fabulous weekend getaway at Pinky’s Hideout. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring all the trails, star gazing and relaxing on the lovely front porch. The cabin is so cozy and includes all the necessities and so much more. We will definitely make another visit here.

I didn't get a chance to meet Laurie, but she was very nice over text message. I did meet with Stacie and she was incredibly welcoming. The property is beautiful, and my boyfriend and I very much enjoyed the yard since it was fully enclosed so we didn't have to keep such a close eye on our two fur-babies as they ran around sniffing everything. The inside decor is just so adorable, the amenities were well stocked, and the AC was a blessing (even though the breeze alone was really good the weekend we stayed). We only got to stay 2 nights, but I would definitely come back here another time and stay for longer! It's a nice retreat that makes you feel very secluded - we didn't run into any other guests staying in the other listings they had even though they were there at the same time.
We can't wait to come back!

We absolutely love staying at Pinky's Bunkhouse; this was our second stay. It truly is a lovely place which is filled with a lot of love and attention. Every detail of the charming Bunkhouse is thought out. The property is very well maintained, spotless, COVID safe. You will not get bored with the various hiking trails and so much more. Whether you are relaxing on the porch watching wild life or out on the trails, you will have a blast. We will be back again for sure. Thank you as always Laure and thank you Stacy for being such a wonderful host. Until the next time. xo

Thank you for a beautiful weekend enjoying nature! The trails were so great, we really appreciated how nicely setup the property is. The highlight of the bunkhouse is the front porch, perfect for sitting out enjoying the view, stargazing at night, barbequing, and relaxing in the hot tub. The fenced in yard was also very convenient for bringing our dogs to enjoy the weekend with us.

We can’t say enough about our stay at Pinky’s & Birdsong Retreat. 2 days in I said out loud “it feels like we’re staying at a friends house!” & that’s exactly what it was like. Everything you need for waffles, nice cookware, plenty of towels & blankets. We had 2 adults, 2 kids ages 5 & 8, & also a small dog - there was plenty of space & the sofa converts to a large, comfortable bed for the kids. My mom kept remarking about the unique & beautiful decór. The hot tub was a huge hit of course, & we loved the trails. The Boulder maze was so much fun to explore, & Glitter Gulch had amazing mica for the kids to learn about. There are hammocks & swings tucked all along the trails making it a fun scavenger hunt for everyone. They have gone above & beyond to make sure that each part of the property feels private which was very nice, & the fenced in yard was so nice for our pup. Thank you!!

We had the absolute best time at Pinkys. It was the relaxing vacation we really needed - long days spent on the porch reading, doing puzzles, in and out of the hottub, and exploring the local trails with our dog (who was in heaven). Can't say enough good things about Pinkys. Laurie was a pleasure to interact with, and was super flexibile about everything. We would love to return here on our next vacation!!

This was such a wonderful location- the guest house is really clean, updated, comfortable bed and everything expected is there (and then some). I appreciate a location that goes above and beyond on expectations (waffle mix and syrup?yes please!) the bunkhouse gave us full privacy and the children loved being able to ride their bikes and explore the boulder maze . A neighbor walking her horse was also a great addition to our stay- and the night sky was beautiful. I would def recommend the bunkhouse for a family with kids and the house is extremely kind and responsive.

Stayed at Pinky's Bunkhouse and it exceeded our expectations. It was a perfectly quiet and private retreat, which was exactly what we were looking for. The trails on the property are well marked and thoughtout well. Laurie was helpful and very responsive, friendly and kind. You can tell they really love this property . With all the crazy in the world right now, this break from the city was a much needed reset. Thank you sharing your wonderful property.
