Site 1 - Luxury Tent
Glamping in the forest!
Saddle Mountain Ranch was the perfect weekend getaway for me and my boyfriend! It is tucked away at the base of the mountain where it's quiet, but also close enough to Carmel and Monterey to easily enjoy what the area has to offer. We stayed in a luxury tent, and it was so cute and peaceful! The firepit and heated blanket really did a lot to add warmth to our stay, and our tent was very clean and comfy. The tents are positioned so that guests get their own secluded spaces to enjoy the valley views, cook on the grill, and relax on the deck. Dishwashing areas and bathrooms/showers are a short walk away, as well as common areas (firepits, the playground, the pool, and the sauna). The hiking trail at the top of the campground also has beautiful, mossy trees and views of the ocean! Jasleen in the front office was also extremely kind and helpful to us. We wish we could have stayed for another night!

The sites are terraced and have beautifully redwoods fence boards so you really enjoy the privacy. The 2 mile trail to the hilltop offers amazing views of Monterey Bay and Carmel Valley! The dishwashing stations have hot water and ample room to work. The pool and sauna looked great but it was chilly so we didn’t take advantage of them. Camping here is a little pricey but it’s a unique and beautiful spot for a getaway.

Kids camp by pool
Great place for kids. They enjoyed basketball and the playground. Could imagine this place is great in the summers when it's warmer enough to swim.
