Welcome to the 2024 Season! After all the glorious and much needed rain (and admittedly a small dose of cabin fever), we're very excited for some sun and warm weather. The skies are blue, the lavender will be blooming soon and we're looking forward to seeing you! In our ongoing effort to ensure the health of our guests and the farm, we're asking everyone to please continue to use the provided hand sanitizers when in the shared facilities and if you're not feeling well, we're happy to help you re-schedule your visit. Thank you so much for your support in keeping everyone healthy! Warmest Regards and Happy Summer! Steffny, Brodie, Sophia & Ranger -------------------------------------------------------------------- Stay in one of our private, beautifully furnished platform tents and enjoy the gorgeous mountain views from your own front porch while you breath in the fragrant lavender scented air. Orr Hot Springs is just up the road or take a very special hike through a protected redwood forest at Montgomery Woods. Settle into the peaceful surroundings and see stars like you've never seen them before. Our fur babies will happily greet you with some dog kisses while we show you to your tent. Fresh, pure spring water is also provided at no charge. We're a working lavender farm and you're welcome to participate in whatever we're doing during your stay, just let us know. Please plan on checking-in before 8pm, we work hard and really need our sleep. : ) Hope to see you soon! Note: You may see some photos of twin beds, but this is no longer the case. BOTH sites now have one queen bed.

A quick 2 night stay; with a wonderful sunrise turning into a rainy next day and night. It was dry and reminiscent of back yard camping in the cozy tent and luxurious bed. Listening to rain on the tent was mesmerizing, as the valley was filled with fog and it felt surreal to be remote yet protected.

By far one of my favorite places I have ever stayed. It’s beautiful, quiet and run by amazing and friendly hosts. I hope to go back again!

Had a lovely birthday weekend at the lavender farm! It smelled beautiful, facilities were clean and Steffny & Allan put a lot of care in to everything. We would highly recommend staying!

Amazing stay! We just got back home and my only regret from my stay at Running Springs is that I didn’t stay longer! Super relaxed and peaceful getaway with great hosts too!

We'll be back!
Let me start off with saying, we will 100% be back and with friends. Steph and Alan are the nicest host and have a beautiful property. I've been dying to visit this site for the past 3 years and I'm kicking myself for not booking it earlier! The site is just as described and they even provide a little table for your connivence which saved us from brining ours. Alan was kind enough to help us bring all our stuff to site #2 and back when we left. Good to know - The site is about 20 minutes from town - Follow Steph's directions after booking, it'll get you to the house better than Google maps - Bring water jugs or something to hold your water - There was no service once we left Ukiah, plan accordingly Things to do near by - Visit Montgomery Woods State Reserve (a very close drive) - Oor hot springs (book well in advance, also vert close) - Visit Ukiah (they have a cute downtown and a brewery) - Visit a local winery near by - Stargaze, the stars were unbelievable

We booked a stay at Running Springs Ranch for my wife’s birthday, and it was everything we needed and more. They provide a clean and cutely decorated tent, a SUPER comfy bed, and picturesque views. The bathroom was clean, which was so nice to have since it gets quite dusty out there. Their property is super dog friendly as well, which our pup lovedddd. It’s not often we get to experience something so special! The property is also a fully functioning lavender farm. Make sure you take advantage of the experiences Steffny offers— you will learn more about the land you’re staying on and will make your visit that much more magical. It’s *not* just a regular Hipcamp, it’s much, much more (and I’ll leave it at that hehe). We felt so welcome from the moment we drove up to when we left. It’s like we were leaving an old friend’s home and didn’t want to leave, honestly! Don’t hesitate and book now! We’ll definitely be back!
