Our property is located above the famous 'Gold Wall' rock climbing area, overlooking Lake Melones. Enjoy the great 360* views of the Sierras and foothills from this 120 acre ranch property. We own a small wine vineyard that offers glamping at its finest. The perfect place to spend one or two nights before your big trip to Yosemite National Park. Our property is NOT recommended for children under 12 yrs old, as we have dangerous cliffs that are straight drop offs. Choose to stay in 1 of our 4 cabins or just pitch a tent and camp under the stars {2 sites available}. The ranch offers fresh Mountain drinking water, with nice shady lawns and Oak trees for shade during the warm Summer weather. Dogs are allowed (2 max) at campsites but NO DOGS in the cabins. We are NOT RESPONSABLE for your animals...they must be on a leash at ALL Times. We have community outdoor areas to enjoy, including picnic tables, a fire pit and a communinal cooking gazebo area equip with BBQ and water. The "Gold Wall" is known for mountain climbing so enjoy the view from above, we offer easy hiking trails, horse shoes, and even mini golf on the "Dragon's Teeth" 6-hole . Looking to relax and rejuvinate your Spirit, book a massage with Michele, a licensed massage therapist, or hang out at the Hawks Lair wine bar on the cliffs edge, overlooking the Gold Wall and Lake Melones. Enjoy the sunset and take in the beauty of the night sky.

Flower Power Cabin #2
Really lovely quiet place in an amazing location, the views over the lake and surrounding hills are breathtaking. It was the exact kind of place I was looking for to unwind for a few days and visit Yosemite - it's only just over an hour's drive and makes an easy day trip. Plenty of amenities within a 15 minute vicinity if you need shops and restaurants. I would love to come and stay again if I get the chance 😊

Wow! The views were only surpassed by the incredible friendliness of Michele and her husband. My boys had fun chasing the frogs.

Gold Wall + Zen Retreat space
Michele and Patrick have a very large space with various accommodations from cabins to tent camping! They were so gracious to be hosting friends from the Agoura fires happening, it was really beautiful to see them open up their space to their community. There was not shortage of beauty and artistic expression on this property and their wine has been such a hit, they're ready to release their new batch coming July 2024! Work with Michele to set up your massage with that breathtaking view or grab a vino and watch the rock climbers scale the world renowned Gold Wall (climbed by Alex Honnold of the documentary Solo fame). Wonderful space!

Great stay! 💜
Thanks for your hospitality Michele & Patrick! These guys went above and beyond to make me feel safe and welcome- even gave me their number and said I could bang on the door if I have any problems. I was not expecting a hot shower- but it was incredible and the walk out to the nest/view was perfect with my morning coffee. I’ll swing back through again someday!

I visited this hidden gem with my son. I had a lack of information but relied on the recommendation from the other parents in the school of my son. The host was very friendly and allowed to access any place in the property. It might not be the place like 5 start Hyatt hotel but it is worthy to take a rest and feel nature with breeze. I and my son could feel the beauty of the environment and look into myself. I turned off the rushing and noisy job for time being.

Oh my gosh. This place is great! I camped one night with my two daughters. Patrick, one of the owners, even came out to build us a fire. He was very helpful and all the facilities are clean and functional. I will definitely return if I find myself in the area again. The listing undersells this place.
