Perfect Getaway with Private Creek
A perfect creekside spot
The property is beautiful and natural. It’s perfect for anyone wanting solitude and relaxation. There are a few spots to access the creek close to the tiny home, however, the views are spectacular if you walk to the end of the main road. Give yourself some time to explore. I especially enjoyed soaking in the outdoor bathtub under the night sky. My only suggestion to a guest is to bring an extra blanket (we were glad to have our sleeping bags with us to supplement the duvet that is provided). The nights were cool while we were there but that’s to be expected in March. Plenty of firewood is provided but you’ll need some kindling/seasoned wood to get a fire going. Overall, I highly recommend this host and Hipcamp! I can’t wait to come back!

Such a fun time at Joe’s Confluence Ranch. We rented the cabin and managed to get a 25 foot class C RV parked as well. It was a great family trip. The outdoor tub is amazing. The sounds of the river and frogs at night were soothing. My 5 year old granddaughter had a blast finding constellations. Huge Dollar General 8 minutes away that came in handy for a few forgotten spices. Joe was great to communicate with and the instructions were clear. Would definitely book again!!

Perfect Getaway with Private Creek
Our stay at Confluence Ranch was even better than I had anticipated! It was a beautiful drive down to the property. The tiny house had just about everything needed for a quick 2 day stay and was a short drive to Penn Valley (for delicious sandwiches and coffee!) and Nevada City. The outdoor tub and shower were so private and relaxing, especially with the creek flowing nearby and the birds chirping. The bed was comfortable and the composting toilet was easy to use. Grateful that the property was dog friendly, though my dog must have heard some critters rustling around and was on alert all night. There was firewood to use, but bring your own kindling. Heater worked great indoors. There are 3 large stairs going up to the house and no railing, so be careful going up and down. The hot water tank is on the smaller side, so be prepared when bathing. All in all, we enjoyed our trip and would recommend!

It was like having a private park only better. The outdoor areas were well groomed with all the provisions to grill, eat, play under the lights and stars. Outdoor tub and shower…magical. Indoors area cozy and comfy…well provisioned and AC. Your only neighbors are wild turkey, deer, horned owl, terrapins and crayfish in the stream and maybe a coyote. Awesome adventure. So very private!
