Our 6+ acre ranch Misthaven sits in the redwood forest at Gilroy, just 20min from Gilroy downtown and 45min from San Jose. This ranch has huge space, lots of ranch amenities and many ranch related activities. If you are planning a short trip that you do not have to drive several hours to the busy lake Tahoe, Misthaven would be an ideal destination for family retreat, team building, or even a birthday party.

Glamping Tent
Great for groups of various sizes!
Well off the beaten path, and nestled in the trees along a creek, this is a great option for groups especially. We ended up staying in the cabins, both the 2 bedroom - very simple, no frills, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom, no common seating area inside. But there’s a hot plate, microwave and mini fridge, as well as a great deck to sit by the creek. We also stayed in the 1 bedroom which has a full kitchen, “fireplace”-heater, washer/dryer, dishwasher, etc. this unit has modern furniture and neat features like barn doors, and a large covered front porch where we sat and watched the rain pouring down. Those units share a thin common wall, so keep that in mind. I’m not sure of the origin story of the property, but there are some quirky design elements/choices that will make you wonder as well. There is a very large grassy area where I loved running around and playing with my dog. It could use a good deep clean, but overall it’s would definitely recommend this place for groups especially.

I would definitely come back again! Joe and Pearl were so friendly and kind to us. We had a great time and felt so safe. We even go to pet a very sweet bunny. Overall, would come again if we’re in the area!

Serene Retreat in a RV in Redwood
What a missed opportunity.
There was such potential for this one! It's a beautiful drive down a redwood-lined lane and is in convenient proximity to Gilroy Gardens and Monterey. Nonetheless, it's apparent that the owner does not live on site and that maintenance and customer service are not a priority. Some of the big misses: 1. After multiple conversations with the owner regarding renting both one of the cabin units as well as the trailer, he never once mentioned that the plumbing to the trailer was not connected and therefore not useable. No sink, no toilet, no shower. He only mentioned this to us AFTER we had paid. That's pretty shady. 2. When we arrived - there was a beeping alarm coming from the trailer, the source of which took his on-site manager (who was LOVELY) over an hour to locate. This meant that we could not use the trailer while the problem was being assessed -which meant by the time he had "solved" it, it was pitch black outside. 3. The "solve" left the entire trailer without electricity. Again - it's clear this was a problem the owner knew about because AFTER booking and paying, he mentioned the electricity isn't great and to limit multiple appliances or fixtures being used at the same time. WE COULD NOT USE ANY because there was no power at all. 4. Ultimately, the kind on-site manager had to jerry-rig an extension cord out to the trailer to plug a space heater in, which ultimately ALSO blew - so we slept in a freezing trailer with no power and no plumbing. Unacceptable.

Private but Dissatisfied
This is spot is absolutely stunning and could be amazing. It’s peaceful, private, and remote. The location is also close to Gilroy Gardens and 40 mins from the beach. I hope the host improves. However, what was thought we purchased and what we got were vastly different. We arrived and didn’t have a clear idea of which spot was ours. The site contained multiple bags of trash from the previous person. The table provided was covered in food etc. The Port A Potty hadn’t been serviced in over a month. The listing said we’d be greeted when we arrived which didn’t happen. At one point the host even drove the opposite direction instead of coming over to say hello. Overall we still had a nice trip but won’t be back.

It wasn’t quite as advertised (wish the petting zoo was as described and wish there were more picnic tables/chairs) but the trampoline was a hit with the toddlers and there was no one around but our party, so it was a great starting spot for new campers
