Awesome time in the Shambala Cabin.
The cabins and property are gorgeous. We stayed in the Shambala cabin and it was wonderful. Adam is very nice and super accommodating. Everything was clean and comfortable and fully stocked. We will definitely be returning.

Trinity Cabin, of the Wisdom Center
I loved my stay in Trinity Cabin. It was a perfect blend of rustic and remote with basic amenities to make the stay comfortable (running water, electric, camp stove). It was a bit off the beaten path but close enough to the places I wanted to explore (Nevada City, Yuba River, Tahoe, etc). Would definitely stay again.

A radiant experience ☀️
We really enjoyed our stay at the wisdom retreat property. We booked 2 nights at the radiance cabin, it's high ceilings and wide deck make this cabin a dreamlike setting. The kitchen was well stocked and we really enjoyed the bath tub. A truly off-grid experience to connect with nature in a safe and intimate space. Thanks to our host, Adam who was also delightful and helped us reach our friend for directions to the property.

Cabin camping
The Serenity Cabin was great! Perfect place to getaway with my bestie and dogs. Cute inside with a comfy couch, great dinning space, and cool kitchen. Good sized bedrooms too. The privacy of the serenity cabin is great when you need some distance between you and other guests. The guest bathroom and showers are nice.

Remote Relaxation
The Trinity cabin was lovely. The land is quite remote, a really good distance from town. Easy to find though, from the excellent directions from Adam. We visited during a heat wave, so thankfully there were plenty of swim spots along the river nearby, but you have to drive. Mosquitoes were pretty intense so bring some citronella candles or bug spray if you want to be outside. Can’t wait to go back in late fall so we can use the stove to keep us warm.

Beautiful land / clean facilities
Overall a very pleasant experience- the cabin suited our needs and lots of potential on the land as the preserve gets developed in an intentional way. Check out the local waterfall when there!

Geronimo Cabin, eco-preserve
We booked Geronimo cabin, but the host had to shuffle another family there and we stayed in the RADIENCE cabin instead. I highly recommend this cabin for it's solitude and inner beauty, but it's also practically the size of a house. It really has everything you need except food and water. Couple words advice for the RADIENCE cabin. Bring all your food and drinks or stop at Mother Truckers market on the way in (they close at 7pm). There are 2 fans in the house and you will need them. We were comfortable when we moved them with us from the bedrooms at night to main room in the day. The water is colored from the well, but it's harmless to wash in. We brought in drinking water, but the host provided some to start. Don't forget bug spray. We drove the road with a minivan, but we would bring the SUV next time because the last 1.5 miles in is a little rough. We didn't see wildlife, but we heard them at night. I will bring a bucket toilet next time for my peace of mind.

We enjoyed our stay at Adam’s land & met some nice people there. Adam is a great host who gave us tips & also showed us the secret waterfall nearby. We’ll definitely go back to try different cabins in a different season!

Perfect weekend!
I had a lovely weekend at Serenity cabin with my husband and our dog. Adam was incredibly responsive before and during our trip and helped us find plenty of nearby activities. Don't miss the gorgeous Bloody Run Creek waterfall! The land is beautiful and the cabin cozy, comfortable and well-maintained with everything we needed. The guest bathroom was an added bonus with hot shower, towels, soap, and shampoo (-and wifi!). We appreciated the perfect mix of camping and glamping. We can't wait to come back and hope to bring friends to fill up all the nearby cabins!

This cabin was great. It’s very cute and comfy and had everything we needed. We appreciated being able to bring our cat! She had so much fun exploring. Our friends rented one of the other cabins and it was fun to hang out in the common space. We’d love to come back again! I can see it being beautiful in every season.

We had a good time in the Trinity cabin. The small trails inside the campsite are short and good exercise for my 5-year-old. The swimming holes nearby (Edwards crossing) are so beautiful. We loved it. The pictures are accurate. The bed is clean and comfortable.

Adam hosted us in a cabin that was the perfect combo of rustic and cozy in a gorgeous setting. We really appreciated the clear directions both to the cabin and to the local sights. I’d recommend bringing a headlamp, flashlight, or USB charger for the provided lanterns in case you need to venture out at night.

The Radiance Cabin was a great spot for us to reconnect with each other and enjoy nature together. The water from the spring tasted great, there were plenty of trails to hike and it was nice to know we could grab some Wi-Fi signal by the main house if needed. Heads up, to get to the Radiance Cabin, stay right after you enter the property.

Geronimo Cabin, eco-preserve
My husband and I loved our stay in the Geronimo cabin. As tent campers, we felt oh-so spoiled in our well-equiped cabin with a warm wood stove (plenty of firewood provided for us!), running water, a stove and all the kitchen essentials, comfortable bed with lots of cozy linens, access to a guest bathroom with shower and clean towels, lots of space to wander and explore the eco-preserve, more amazing outdoor adventure recommendations from Adam than we could tackle in one visit, and a beautiful, delicious, and nourishing salad made of goodies foraged fresh from the property provided by sweet Samantha. We look forward to returning for more adventures and to witness the growth of this wonderful preserve and training center!

Exactly as advertised 😉 wonderful secluded cabin, not really "rustic" exactly as it has a propane stove and oven. But what an amazingly beautiful area. The hosts are good people and so easy to work with. I hope to be back!

Peaceful cabin retreat
I spent an excellent weekend in the Serenity Cabin. The land and nature around the cabin is fantastic, with hiking trails, rivers, and mountains. It was an excellent trip to get away from the everyday stress and recharge. I will definitely be coming back!

Off the grid!
We had a great stay at the Shamballa cabin. Very peaceful and relaxing property where we could disconnect from it all. The location is very remote. We Spent some time hiking along the Yuba and exploring Nevada City. Adam was responsive and the cabin was very comfortable and well stocked.

Roam free and expore!
We were two families and had a fantastic experience in Radiance Cabin. We enjoyed family style meals, a night walk to the pond, being cozy around the fire, and smores. Our kids enjoyed roaming and bike riding around freely with no worries of cars. The outhouse was very clean and beds and linens were quite comfortable and warm. The kitchen is great but sparsely stocked -- we were happy we brought a coffee pour over, a wine opener, a sharp knife and butter/oil. Adam gave detailed instructions and made sure we understood the rustic nature of the cabin. The property is ideally located as well -- too much to do in one weekend. We hope to be back.

Rustic. Cozy. Clean. Peace.
A perfect retreat from the spin of the world right now. Quiet, peaceful - so tidy and well appointed. Beds were super cozy, kitchen is fun to cook in - The big gathering rough hewn wood table is perfect for…well, gathering :) The land is so fun to explore - lots of maps and resources avail to peruse. AND a fantastic bookshelf. You gotta be cool with doing the nature pee, and hoofing it across a sweet little meadow for the outhouse. Rustic, stylish, peace. Do it!

Unique Cabin Experience
Adam has a few cabins to choose from unique to one another and placed as to provide privacy. Geronimo, Shambala, Serenity, Trinity, Radiance and I may have missed one or two. Shambala was spacious for we two, with two large bedrooms and a super large room with king mattress in the living/dining/kitchen area. All the cabins are similarly supplied with rustic well crafted furniture and art that ties to the cabin’s name. Looking forward to returning one day.
