We loved staying at Steffny’s. We came with our elderly parents and Allen and Steffny were very accommodating and made them feel completely at home. Allen made a great fire for us both days. We will certainly come back.

The ranch was so calm, quiet and peaceful! The bed was amazing! I need to know what brand it is! And we were treated so well! The furry friends were so sweet too and the view, gorgeous!! A great middle spot to visit all the surrounding towns. The bathroom was very convenient as well. I highly recommend this lovely ranch!! Oh and I’m using my lavender essential oil every day!!! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

We loved it so much! Steffny was so helpful with any questions prior to arriving. We didn’t meet her but Alan was very nice and helpful throughout our stay. He prepped our fire and helped us with any needs or questions. The property itself is very clean and beautiful. The tent decor is rustic and charming. The lavender fields were blooming and such a sight and smelled amazing. We got to also meet the furry family members Sophia, Brodie and Ranger. The best experience and can’t wait to come back again!

It was perfect! Waking up to the bird songs, walking around in the lavender field, listening to the insect songs at night was truly a bliss. For the whole weekend, we were indulged in lavender’s fragrance. On the sunny day, bees were happily collecting the lavender nectar. The sunrise and sunset were especially gorgeous at the lavender field. The bathroom was super clean and true to and maybe even above the glamping criteria. 👍 I would recommend this experience to anyone who likes enjoying nature in comfort.

My partner and I stayed here for two nights and it was wonderful! We arrived at around 7:30 pm on a Friday and was greeted by Alan, who showed us the bathroom in the house and then gave us and our gear a ride down to Site 2. The bathroom was super clean and there were towels/hand towels available for use. As others have mentioned, it is a bit of a walk/incline to get from Site 2 to the bathroom, but that wasn't a big deal to us. The tent itself was roomy, the bed was comfortable, and the view was gorgeous. I wish we'd had more time to relax and enjoy the property, but we spent an amazing Saturday in Mendocino and Fort Bragg (highly recommend making a trip out there!) At night, Alan prepared a campfire for us and it was the perfect end to our trip.

We did not meet Steffny, but shoutout to Alan for being a great host and making sure we had everything we needed!

Our second stay and loved every minute of the visit. Even the rain we had was lovely… listening to it at night in the tent, in a cosy bed. Communication was great, everything perfect clean, atmosphere and as beautiful and stylish. And hosts, can’t get any better. Thank you for a great second stay and already booking for #3!

Wow what an experience! Steff and Alan were the best hosts and made sure I was comfortable and enjoying myself. This place really is a piece of heaven. It was raining when i was there and it made it even more magical. I nice and toasty every night and I was sad to leave. This is a perfect place to disconnect.

We loved our long weekend at Alan's and Steffny's farm. It is conveniently located. We used it as a base to visit wineries in Anderson Valley and Hopland. We also visited Mendocino and the gorgeous Montgomery Woods State Natural Reserve which is only 10 minutes down the road.

Both hosts are very hospitable and welcoming. The tent is very spacious and we had an incredible view from the deck. The toilet and bathroom were very clean. We will definitely come back.

Running Springs Ranch is a beautiful and well-cared for property and hosts Steffny and Alan were helpful and charming. Our tent (#2) was cozy and we enjoyed a fantastic night of stargazing followed by an evening of fog characteristic of Northern California. The bathroom and sink for dish washing are part of the main house and were very clean. We’d love to return for another stay!
