Enjoy the peaceful countryside in a charming 1964 Little Dipper vintage camper tucked away in a small canyon on a 40-acre working farm. The camper is refurbished with lovely aromatic cedar woodwork, a handmade dining table and comfortable queen bed. Lots of windows and colors make for an airy and bright space. It is powered entirely with solar for LED lighting, colorful accent lights, and outlets. Disconnect and enjoy the campfire, stars, and fresh air. Only 5 min from town.

Enjoy a walk around the farm to view the garden and animals (please do not touch the animals without assistance.) Fire pit with wood available for $5 a bundle. Trash, cleaning supplies, and basic kitchen supplies are available.

There is an abundance of great hiking trails and bike routes here on the Central Coast. A few beaches are very close, as well as a hot spring about 30 minutes away. The area around us is known for great wine. There is a location in Lompoc called the Wine Ghetto which is a collection of wineries, tasting rooms, and wine cellars from vineyards in the Santa Rita Hills. There is a great local coffee shop in town for WIfi as well. A guide to the local area is provided in the camper for suggestions on restaurants, bars, local attractions and activities.

Wi-Fi is available, but spotty. If you need it for work please do not book. Limited cell phone service. We are a working farm. Every day at 8:00 work begins on the farm, and although we do not often use heavy equipment and tractors, there are cars coming on going as well as dogs barking. Work begins between 9:30 and 10:00am on the weekends. The outdoor shower is great for drinking a beer while showering. The camper does not have AC, or a refrigerator. There is a solar system in place to charge devices and to have lighting, but won't support hair dryers, straighteners, power tools, or any other high draws over 10AMPS

Staying at Dare 2 Dream was definitely the right decision! The camper was the perfect size and had everything I needed for my solo trip. Not to mention it was also such a nice surprise to wake up with cows outside my window everyday! The interior of the camper was really cute and the bed was quite comfy and the outhouse was close by for easy access. The location is also quite close to the a beautiful flower field and a lovely beach. I would highly suggest staying here!

A wonderful rustic retreat in the valley. Close enough to town, but I just bought food from their farm stand and never went into civilization. The trailer is old, but charming and reasonably clean.

Didn't have any interactions with the host, but the farm employees I saw around were friendly. There are goats to feed, and dogs to pet.

Would definitely return.

After a long day of cycling we loved having a place to relax. The animals were a welcome plus. The quiet location was pretty awesome.

We had a beautiful stay at the trailer, so good in fact that we decided to stay there again on our way home as well! It was really easy to find, had a very cosy bed and all the supplies that you needed for a comfortable night away from the city, it was such an adventure to figure out where everything was! We loved having a fire in the evening and waking up to the farm animals starting their day, as well as farmstand at the front gate to stock up on delicious veggies from.

We loved our stay at Dare 2 Dream Farms in the 1964 trailer. The trailer was exactly as described and was very cozy. It was great to experience the working farm atmosphere and we loved all the animals. The dogs were super friendly and loved hanging out with us while we were at camp. Can’t wait to visit again soon!

We enjoyed our stay, although we didn't spend a lot of time at the farm. It was neat being close to the animals, and we made a good friend in one of the farm dogs. The trailer was really cute and cozy, except for a funky smell, and it was nice being able to cook. I only wish the bathroom situation wasn't a porta potty.
We loved having a campfire! Overall, we are really glad we stayed, and had a wonderful weekend, and I'm glad to experience sleeping in the middle of a farm. However, we probably won't be rushing back because there's not much right around there...unless you weren't a local to the Central Coast, and then it's a nice home base for exploring. We do live on the Central Coast, but weren't familiar with the Lompoc area and have to say we weren't that impressed with the town overall. It felt like a ghost town, even on a Friday and Saturday night. But we made it a wonderful weekend going to Solvang and Santa Barbara.

This was without a doubt just what I needed on my trip from LA to SF. The camper was small but honestly the perfect size and did the job; Very clean and cozy. I really enjoyed staying on the farm and awoke to some really amazing fog looming on the property. The fire pit was an added bonus as well. Jeremy provided great communication, directions and a wonderful stay overall. I had to leave extra early and was upset I couldn't visit their farm stand. I would totally recommend this camper to others looking for a simple yet enjoyable stay. I will definitely keep this location on my favorites for future stays. Thanks a million Jeremy, you're the best!

We had a fine experience overall, but there were a few areas for improvement where my expectations weren't fully met.

First the good: the inside of the camper is cozy and comfortable for sleeping and dining. It was also very clean, which is crucial these days! We still preferred to use our own sleeping bag as a top blanket for the cold December weather, even though there were blankets provided that looked clean.

The not-so-good: the camper was not equipped with guidance/instructions, so we struggled to find what we needed (e.g., cookware) and navigate the amenities (e.g., stove and kitchen sink). The stove did not work at first, as it needed a propane tank replacement, and the kitchen sink in the camper was broken, so we had to find one outside. There was no outdoor lighting, which made finding and using the sink challenging, so I'd recommend bringing a lantern. For our December stay, using the outdoor sink was unpleasant because of how early it gets cold and dark. I'm sure it's less of an issue in the summer. The cookware and plateware are also not on par with photos—e.g., we did not find a cast iron skillet, cutting board, or proper knife—but we were still able to cook veggie pasta. We were also not aware of whether there was a carbon monoxide detector, so decided to leave the windows open all night because of having used the propane stove in a small space for dinner.
