"Mi Querida" at Mission Ranch - EV
Beautiful setting near a very cute town. San Juan Bautista has great restaurants and a lot of history. Some of it troubling but all of it interesting, mass gravesite of 4300 Native Americans behind the mission. A peaceful site for camping or parking an rv. Weather couldn’t have been better in early November. Nobody else was there.

Lovely spot, kind host
The campsite was flat and had plenty of space, and the ranch is a lovely place. Friendly kitty, outdoor shower, starry skies. Very convenient to Sam Juan Bautista, and Nancy is a friendly and responsive host. We would stay here again :-)

Nancy is so welcoming and the horse and the donkey are so friendly and cuddly! We didn't want to leave. My 5yo wants to come back every weekend :) The camp area is comfortable, the kitchen and the dining area convenient. It's perfect for animal-loving kids. Also bonus point is even though you're camping with animals, there is no smell at all. Thanks for hosting us.

My husband and I loved our stay at Mi Querida. From our camping spot we had the most beautiful view of the mountains, as well as of the ranch. It was peaceful, serene, quiet and visually stunning. I hope we have another opportunity to visit Nancy and Mi Querida.

Truck camping with Animals !
Nancy’s land accommodated my fiancée and I’s rooftop truck-tent-camp flawlessly. What is described on the listing is accurate. Great views, peaceful, rolling hills, rustic-Californian barn vibes. We pulled the truck right under a private tree and next to Hannah (horse) and Daisy (burro), and that elevated our experience, as they were very welcoming. We also met her corgis, and the barn cat Blue, all very nice. Really - don’t forget the carrots to feed them if it still applies in the listing! It was a calming experience being able to feed the wonderful animals with what Nancy provided, but would’ve been stellar if we had more to give. Nancy was a fantastic host, super accommodating, great spirit. 5/5 stars.

Nancy was a wonderful host! She escorted us to her property, introduced us to Bleu, Grace, and Hannah, and helped us get settled at our site. She was very responsive, and the site was really nice that we had — 50amp and 20amp charging for two Tesla car campers, flat area with ample room to set out chairs and take in the view. There is a barbecue, a fridge with drinks in it, and a fire pit (bring your propane tank!). Toilet is a traveling toilet situation (one of those portable camping toilets) and shower/sink have hot water. Easily 45 minutes from Pinnacles. Make sure to allow for Hollister traffic if you’re driving down on a Friday afternoon — took us an hour and a half from San Jose. Make sure to say hello to Willie and Jasmine too (corgis!). Would definitely visit again — thanks Nancy!
