Stallion Oaks is a Star Host
Star Hosts are highly rated, responsive, and committed to providing incredible experiences.
In 2003, the Grosvenor Family Foundation donated the 238-acre retreat property located in Descanso to The Unity Center. Much of the land, including more than 12 structures were destroyed during the Cedar Fires in October of 2003. In the years since the fire, members of our community have lovingly tended to the land and slowly nurtured the trees and flowers. The result is acres of pristine wilderness, with hiking trails, a small lake and even a hill of daffodils that bloom every Spring. Our vision is to create a world-class retreat center and campground that promotes spiritual renewal and personal growth in a natural setting, by providing a location for education, inner reflection, positive recreation and acceptance. The Ranch is owned by The Unity Center, a progressive spiritual community that emphasizes living consciously and making a positive difference in the world. This is a sacred and special place . So whether you're planning a retreat, a wedding or a special event, we hope you'll come away from the Ranch feeling renewed.

Site 11 - Stallion Oaks Ranch ~16' Yurt
Great yurt, hot and little to do.
It was 103 degrees F and not a lot of shade on site. The yurt itself was awesome! Unfortunately, there is not a lot to do there. A lake near by but not conducive to swimming, a labyrinth that’s fun to walk through once, but kids got bored in 15 minutes. The host family is very nice and generously let us use the pool, which we stayed all day at because of the heat and lack of anything else to do. Very dry, lots of bugs.

Site 16 - Stallion Oaks Ranch ~16' Yurt
Confusing when you first get there. No signs or check-in. Yurts are nice but can be like a Sauna during the day as they are in direct sunlight with little shade. They are old and in need of repair but provide cover at night. Doors cannot be locked. Restrooms are clean and centrally located. Grounds are natural and unkept. Trails are not maintained and Rattle snakes are present so be aware.

Stallion Oaks Ranch ~Tent Site
Not for tent only
The site is flat and fully shaded. But not comment for tent only. Too many trailers around and they didn’t follow the quiet time policy at all. They played music and talked loudly until midnight. Even we mentioned them our kids were sleeping. They even made louder. We booked two night but leave in second morning. We can’t sleep. So sad for this experience.

Stallion Oaks Ranch ~Tent Site
It was a great spot wish I went a different time of year to explore more it was just so hot but that's a me thing. And the only thing I hated was the bugs!! Omg! But it's cute it's small the pool water feels so crazy refreshing and clean. I hope we treated your place right and you allow us back again SO Team

Stallion Oaks Ranch - 24' Yurt
This is a fun and easy getaway from San Diego. Our yurt was huge, the pool was clean, the lake was gorgeous, the bathrooms were fine. We will definitely come back!
