The vibe at Camp Cowgirl at Surf Ranch
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
The tent is nicely decorated and the space feels very private. The host attended to all the details (like candles in the candelabra over the bed and fresh towels for the shower) and made us feel very welcome. Their sweet dog Norman joined us by the fire and played with our dog like a true host. We loved the campfire and outside shower after arrival. The wood burning stove came in very handy the chilly and rainy morning after. Not sure what the "surf" reference is but there is a creek nearby and beautiful surroundings to wander in.
Secluded hideaway under the stars
Thank you so much Mike and Gina for hosting us! This is such a special spot and feels like a real getaway. The property is so beautiful and Gina has though of every last touch to make the space feel welcoming. I can’t wait to get back here one day! Highly recommend.
The perfect getaway
This place is truly something special. Gina is a wonderful host who really makes camp cowgirl feel like a home away from home. This place has everything you need. And the views are absolutely stunning. I wish tomorrow morning I could wake up to chirping birds, rather than my own alarm clock. I can’t wait to come back someday! Thank you Gina! Please throw a few sticks for Norman for us :)
Gina's place is incredible. Very seculded and every detail was so thoughtful from directions to check in and the spaces.
The tent itself is roomy, clean and comfortable in every aspect. The outhouse and outdoor shower are charming (I know, a charming outhouse lol) and the kitchen area was well equipped and spacious.
Gina was very communicative and a pleasure to chat with upon arrival.
Make sure to say hi to Norman for me!
Private magical get away
What a beautiful, magical experience! Everything was exceptional. From the private, lush landscape to the refreshing, blissful rushing of the river, to the truly "glamping" luxury of a hot outdoor shower. Then there are the stars at night, wow!
Gina is a special, lovely human being and the perfect host.
I'm so grateful to the Universe for guiding me to Camp Cowgirl at Surf Ranch.
