AS OF 9/8/21 WE REQUIRE A TEXTED PHOTO OF YOUR COVID-19 FULL VACCINATION RECORD PRIOR TO ACCEPTING YOUR REQUEST.

LaRue is a comfy & cozy glamping tent outfitted with a queen sized, Tempurpedic topped mattress, vintage sofa, ridiculous amount of luxurious pillows and lovely blankets, vintage decor, lamps and an assortment of delightful reading material. 

This is one of 5 sites at Rudy Ranch. Our property wide, maximum capacity is 18 and all campers have access to the swimming pool, pool bathroom and shower during their stay. It is uncommon to have a full camp.

CHECK IN IS ONLY ALLOWED 3:00 - 9:00 PM Mother's Day - Labor Day Weekend and 2:00 - 6:00 PM AFTER Labor Day Weekend - Mother's Day.   If you can't make it by those times, please book for the following day.

If you're looking for an ADULTS ONLY, beautiful and quiet place to enjoy a beautiful glamping tent, you've found it!  While we do enjoy the energy of young children, we live in a very quiet neighborhood and have made the decision to exclusively host adult guests looking for a restful retreat. We have also decided that we will NOT make exceptions to this decision and invite those looking for a family experience to continue their search on the Hipcamp platform. There are many family-friendly hosts excited to accept children of all ages! 

We supply towels for your use at the pool and ask that you shower before using either the hot tub or swimming pool and not wear any lotions or oils during use. 

COVID-19 - While we offer soap, hot water, hand sanitizer and disinfectant spray we trust that our campers are taking precautions to stay safe and will practice social distancing while staying with us. We do not have anything marked, as we trust that we all are aware of how far 6 feet apart is. ;)  We clean and disinfect the bathroom after each guest checks out and ask each camper to clean up before and after themselves to ensure their own safety.  

***There are two things we want to know before moving forward with accepting your request. Please let us know how many cigarette smokers are requesting to book and that you are aware that this booking does not offer a place to cook. We encourage our campers to support our community and dine out.  Sending us the answers to these items will indicate to us that you have taken the time to read through our information and that there are no false expectations about the set up. We have found this to be necessary and appreciate your understanding. ***

Join us and enjoy all the Santa Cruz mountains has to offer!

First time glamping was an incredible success. Tipi La Rue was curated for a fabulous and femme stay. The bed was comfy, but the antique sofa with plush seat covering was so luxurious I legitimately almost fell asleep there one night. I can’t get over how La Rue felt made for me: an independent woman’s getaway. I LOVED the mornings there.. the birds chirping, the sunrise lighting up the foliage and redwoods.. it was so magical sitting out on the tipi porch with my journal to experience it. Also, I was there for 4 nights and had the pool ALL DAYS to myself!!! So lucky. The pool was where everything except ur chic tipi is at: toilet, shower, big communal fridge to store ur snacks/booze/leftovers, and plenty of seating. If you’ve been camping and can handle some discomfort (walking to the flush toilet, having a hot water outdoor shower that might have lots of cobwebs that you use a nearby broom to wipe off, being the only ethnic person in town getting a coffee/bite/beer/morning coffee), this place is amazingggg. I will be back. Will probably make it a yearly solo retreat.

Gordon was very welcoming and had a lovely property in the redwoods! The yurt/tent was comfortable and delightful! Unfortunately the hot tub wasn’t working and the shower was outside in the main pool area with only a bamboo screen to separate you from the strangers who you are sharing this space with. We were also hoping for it to be a bit more quiet then it was (but we are backpackers, so maybe we have a low tolerance for the noise of other people at night!). Wonderful location up in the woods and easy to get around. Jenna Sue’s had awesome coffee/breakfast!

The pros: the tent is nicely decorated, comfortable mattress and pillows, very clean. Walking distance from town. Friendly host.

The cons: tent sites too close to each other, steep grade path from vehicle parking to tent site. All other amenities are quite shabby, the shower stall specially. Expensive at $400 for two nights.

Was so nice being in the redwoods, but still having a mattress in our tent to sleep on. It’s beautiful there. And Gordon was a great host!

Bathrooms were down the hill from where the camping is, and owners house is in between the two. Owners were friendly, provided a gallon of water, and some cups in the tent, and were not nosey or overbearing at all. Tent was bigger than it looks in the pictures and had plenty of shade from trees above. Nice restaurants close by and cool antiques stores. Other guests were kind and mindful, and the area never felt crowded. Such a cool spot. I'd come back!

Stayed here for a second time and it was just as great as the first time. Good communication with Gordon and Roni. Tipi is clean, cozy and perfect for some quality time alone or with someone else in the woods. Also some good food spots around!
