This Cozy Farm Stand sleeps 1 -2 adults. Depending on your level of comfort, 1 child could squeeze in. 1 couch converts into a futon and there is another futon (single) in the upper loft. An additional futon can be added and placed next to couch futon . (Not for everyone. Loft requires climbing a ladder) There is access to a common toilet & shower in the main farmhouse. Farm Stand is located right above the basketball court in case you are into basketball! There is more foot traffic in this area, so not as private during the day.

Garden goddess farmstand -a sierra
Wonderful experience. Susan is the most gracious host. We learned so much from her through our add on experience of foraging on her property and the uses of all the native plants that were growing around us. The area is so peaceful at night and the setup was clean and spaced out to feel pretty private. There was a common area on the second floor deck with stunning views where you could relax, stretch, eat or just soak it all in. We also took her up on her brunch before our day in Tahoe (1 hour and 20mins away). It was the perfect meal with fresh ingredients that set us up for the day. The farm stand has a futon and loft single bed. Cozy for two. Coffee, tea and kettle provided as well as power. The experience exceeded all our expectations. If you're looking to truly escape and learn how to live the homesteading life Susan's Garden Goddess farm experience is the right place to start. Our little puppy Bruna loved it all, too.
This was a great place to escape the chaos of the city for a few days with my pup. We relaxed a ton and loved exploring, learning about the garden, and cooking with Susan. I’m hoping to return with my son some day,
