Enjoy nature at its best! This is a wood framed 16’ X 12’ canvas safari tent perched on a boulder outcropping overlooking a beautiful valley and surrounded by tree tops.  The newly created loop trail is about 1/2 mile, runs passed a boulder filled creek, and is surrounded by big, private forest (you wont see anyone). 

This ‘tent’ features wood floors, cal king bed, electric blanket and heater, and a private deck with Adirondack chairs, firepit, and propane bbq. It’s a short walk to the full outdoor bathroom with hot/cold water. Shower in the trees!  There are two private hot tubs (one set around 90F for day use, one at around 103F for a chilly eve). 

The Forest Service has recently closed most public hikes across California due to the fires.  Im anticipating closures to remain for a while.  So if hanging out at the property and in town sounds good, come!.  If you're set on a big hike on one of the public trails, then come next year.

This place was nothing short of amazing. The bed was the best sleep I’ve had in awhile. Views were spectacular and Brian had a million blankets and heaters to keep us warm.

This was the first time my girlfriend and I went on a glamping excursion. We are typically low maintenance car camping, backpacking, and minimal outdoor enthusiast. However, we wanted to splurge and really enjoy ourselves. Brian created a little slice of heaven over a breath taking landscape. He has provided everything one could think of to make sure our experience was out of this world. We cannot wait to come back to celebrate an anniversary or special occasion!

Quite a memorable little get away. Very private and beautiful setting. Brian was responsive to our questions and provided all the basics for an easy stay. He really means it when he says bring clothes and the food you plan to cook.

Such a picturesque and quiet escape, with all the amenities of home! We particularly enjoyed early morning soaks in the lower hot tub to warm up before starting the day.

Being in our mid 60’s the trail into the property while carrying our supplies was a bit rough. Once there the views were spectacular. The tent was very nice and homey. Brian is very mindful of having supplies there to make your stay comfortable. The bathroom was great with more beautiful views. The compost toilet gets an A+.
The BBQ and outdoor kitchen was well equipped and more beautiful views. Very secluded and peaceful.
With the tent, bathroom and BBQ areas being on different levels you have to be able to get up and down the pathways.
We had a great stay.

Had an awesome time staying here for two days. Brian was happy to answer any questions that I had before the trip and met up with me as I arrived to show us around the property (with masks of course). Its an amazing place he's built there in the back of his house. The views of the mountains are awesome. We enjoyed easy access to the trails across the street and also the private trail within the property as well. Everything is as advertised and more. Looking forward to visiting again someday.
