I knew it was beautiful and fun looking but I had no idea. Our host was super kind and very knowledgeable about plants, foods, homesteading and so much more, and puts on classes to teach people. The space itself was so cute, clean, and well maintained. There was wifi and cellular signal from the shack. We took the foraging tour and was not disappointed, making our own farm fresh sustainable foods felt so good, was surprisingly yummy, and so much fun and educational. The whole time we felt so relaxed and happy, just enjoying the view and the peace that the lands has to offer. I cannot put into words how nice the stay was! 10/10 would recommend this place.

Susan was such a great hostess the minute we arrived! Once we parked she showed us around the cute cabin we would be staying at, which wasn’t far from where she was located but at the same time offered us more than enough privacy. It has a nice view with a wide window bedside and the oak tree the cabin is built around is beautiful. There is also a cart of products you can purchase including fresh honey, teas, jams, and her homemade sriracha. There was also a vase of edible flowers you could use to add to your tea. It was me, my husband, and my toddler and she was so so accommodating. Her meals are amazing, she served us dinner within minutes of our arrival and all her meals are made of fresh and organic ingredients! We had tacos, organic wine, and a Thai-inspired picnic put together so we could have our lunch in the tipi. My daughter had a great time and Susan always added treats to our meals for her, whether it was quesadillas or cookies, all of which she devoured! I’m going to miss drinking coffee on the balcony and listening to the chicken’s roam below us. I definitely plan on coming back next time my school has break!

Such a beautiful stay. My boyfriend and I had an amazing time in the treehouse. If you’re looking for peace and quiet— this is the spot. Also really enjoyed meeting Susan, and talking about her farm! I recommend spending the extra money on her farm to fork meals and eggs. Way better than eating at restaurants in town! It was such a full experience and we will be back!

Absolutely Amazing! Susan was very welcoming, very sweet, and had a wealth of knowledge. This was the best trip ever if we didn’t have kids at home we would have moved In 🤣. Susan was very hospitable and her cooking is phenomenal! If you stay buy a jar of her homage Sirachi it’s absolutely the best. The property is gorgeous. Thank you for everything!!!!

Had a super relaxing and quiet stay at the Love Shack. We were able to keep to ourselves and enjoy the view and the property. We cooked breakfast and dinner on the balcony and had a wonderful time. It was great to recharge and get away.

Great experience. During our stay, we were able to disconnect from our day-to-day and connect with each other. The love shack has nice privacy from the main (host) house, but was close enough to use the bathroom/shower in the main house. Susan was a gracious and generous host. She checked in with us a few times via text if we needed anything. An added bonus -- her brunch was delicious! Would definitely recommend a weekend getaway here!

This place was AMAZING and Susan is wonderful.

If you like the farm and nature vibe, this place is so lovely and the Love Shack is very cozy.

The chickens and ducks are adorable, the compost toilet is great, and Susan is a delightful and accommodating host.

Highly recommend to anyone, anytime!

This spot is truly such a special gem. We loved the tree growing through the room and all the whimsical signs on the fruit trees. Susan made us a delicious brunch fresh from her garden. The room overlooks the chickens and ducks and a talkative rooster so bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper, but we loved the charm of hearing the animals.

Close enough to town and to lovely swimming spots on the Yuba. Looking forward to coming back :)
