Welcome to our rustic retreat in rural Butte County, a haven we've called home since 1997. Nestled on 14 acres, our family farm offers a unique camping experience where you and your children can embrace the freedom to run and explore. Explore the property and connect with nature by visiting our alpaca, sheep, cow, kittens, dog, and chickens. Take a leisurely stroll down a country road or stargaze under the clear night sky from the open circle of Adirondack chairs. Bask in the tranquility of this quiet country space, where fresh air abounds. Our location is a gateway to numerous outdoor adventures such as Lassen Volcanic Park and Table Mountain, and just 22 minutes from downtown Chico and Chico State. Discover local gems like the Bidwell Mansion, Bidwell Park, Lime Saddle Marina, Butte Creek Canyon, and the Honey Run Covered Bridge, all within a short drive. For history enthusiasts, Paradise – known for its antiquing, biking, and historic trail along the old railroad line. Visit the Paradise Depot, Museum, or the Gold Nugget Museum for a trip back in time. While you're surrounded by nature, enjoy the convenience of good cell service and Wi-Fi – perfect for streaming on our smart TVs with our fiber optics. Should you need anything during your stay – be it a Band-Aid, needle and thread, or kitchen essentials – simply let us know. Our property is home to playful kittens and our friendly border collie, Caspian, who roams freely. If preferred, Caspian can be kenneled upon request. Escape to our farm stay and experience the best of rural living with modern comforts. Your adventure awaits!

Little White Tiny Farm Stay
Airstream on a hill
Took my parents to stay in the AirStream and we really enjoyed the stay. The property is on a hill which is honestly the best part. You get views in all directions. The small portable heater kept was really warm as i was worried we might get cold. We sat around the fire at night. It was a propane burner not firewood thought. The host Julio was very friendly and explain all the things we need to know about the airstream. There was a small tv with a built in dvd player. But i found the sound to be decent and watched a movie on my mac instead. The wifi at the moment was not working but not a big deal. There were ton of stores with in 10min drive. We did grocery shopping from save mart and got thai food one day. Walking around the property was fun seeing all the chickens, cats, sheeps and a llama. They also had a very friendly dog too. All in all pretty good trip.

Stunning property!
The property was so gorgeous! Both Julio and Carolyn were so kind and welcoming, it was wonderful to be able to share their space. All their animals were sweethearts and so fun to hang out around, definitely a plus for animal lovers like ourselves! We would absolutely stay again, and would love to check out the other home stays on their property.

Had a great time staying in the tiny home. Julio was a welcoming and generous host. Hanging out with the alpaca and sheep was a perfect activity to help unwind from city stress.

Vintage AIRSTREAM farm Glamping
The Perfect Respite
I was looking for a local retreat where I could stay for a few days to ground myself prior to my upcoming RN board exam. Julio and Carolyn provided just that. They were friendly, kind, and extremely accommodating. They went to great lengths to ensure I had everything I needed to make my stay both quiet and productive. The bed in the Airstream was SO comfortable and cozy, and enjoying French press coffee with homemade muffins while sitting outside, watching the sun rise over the mountains was the perfect way to start the day. Caspian, the dog, as well as a whole host of friendly cats joined me on my walks around the property. Velasquez Tambo Ranch is a perfect getaway which I highly recommend. I look forward to returning.
