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.

I loved getting to experience multiple locations at the Garden Goddess Farm, and really wish I'd been able to stay in the Treehouse! HOW COOL!
The spaces are a little closer together than I anticipated, but each unique and sweet. The tipi is pretty magical, the Tuscan Room quite stunning in my opinion, camping on the land was lovely with deer and night critters, a little hot at the peak of the summer, but that's not unexpected!
Susan is an absolute blessing to this planet.
Words cannot show the gratitude my partner and I have for her farm, cooking, conversation, kindness and infinite more. The value of our stay was so incredible. The hotel industry could take many notes on customer service from Susan. Also her on hand help, Ricky, was a major joy who take such good care of us on arrival to our departure. Do not expect luxurious amenities by any hotel standard but do expect exceptional cooking if you decide to opt in for the fresh farm brunch. Our lives are made more brilliant thanks to our decision to stay with Susan. I hope you make the journey to this joyful space.
Delicious meals and sweet spaces!
Thank you so much to Susan and Ricki!! I felt like part of the gang when I arrived and my privacy was also respected. I booked at Garden Goddess Farm for some space to work and be a bit away! It is a lovely neighborhood setting on large parcels, with a beautiful wild canyon just below. Lovely shared deck...gongs...chickens...CUTE, sweet spaces. The shared kitchen was wonderful to have on my 10night stay!
Also, Susan is an incredible cook, who puts a huge amount of love into her clean and beautiful food. Absolutely worth it!
Culinary farm experience
Our stay at Garden Goddess Farm was a culinary celebration. Our kind host, Susan, warmly welcomed us to the property upon our arrival, and immediately made us feel right at home.
During our stay at Garden Goddess Farm, we lodged in The Treehouse---a lovely cottage overlooking a grove of cacti and manzanitas. The lodging was very clean and well taken care of. The Treehouse earns it namesake from arboreal embellishments that casually usurp the floor to become a centerpiece for this living space. The adjoining, elevated deck also contribute to the feeling of being comfortably perched among the trees (and, is fantastic for star-gazing).
In close proximity to our cozy quarters we had access to an indoor bathroom/shower facility. Throughout the property there are multiple
seating areas beckoning you to take a load off, relax, and reconnect to nature. There is also a pleasant walking path that meanders around the perimeter of the property. The highlight of our stay at Garden Goddess Farm was partaking in the delicious culinary experience offered by Susan. My husband and I were toured around the property, and got to
sample ripe, delicious fare straight from the garden; Muscato grapes, goji berries, and edible flowers were but a few delights. We also had the immense pleasure of enjoying a pizza-making experience with Susan for dinner, and were blown away by the fresh flavor of the natural ingredients. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Garden Goddess Farm and would definitely recommend
Sunrise room bliss
The Goddess Farm is a Divine Retreat space, well care for, and tidy. There is a great loving female presence on the land and in all of the unique spaces.
Everything was perfectly organized. I could feel the love and intention in my room and I had everything I needed.
When exploring the priory I found the land to be deeply healing, Quiet and serene.
During my stay I felt attended to by the hostesses but not overly fussed over.
I ended up extending my stay and coming back shortly after!
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,
