One of those rare places of pure beauty, peace and joy.
The property, land, animals, river and amenities so far exceeded what I got from the listing, I walked around with a smile on my face, I was so taken by this site. I was camping alone and solo as a female and felt so safe. off the grid allows you to truly recharge and connect with the land and the richness avail. outside of daily electronic life. I simply can't find the words to express how much I loved this camp site and the cabins and teepee looked amazing. I happened to be alone the days I booked and waking to deer in front of my tent and the frongs on the river and the orchard, the blackberries everywhere, the trampoline, the fun to be had and the beauty blew me away. I booked a third night, as I didn't want to leave. I didn't get to learn from the hosts as they happened to be away, but I connected with the beautiful owners of this property and the care and pure respect for life and the land and the love that went into creating such a special place to commune with nature and just be ... was remarkable. I'm so grateful something said to book it, because it so far surpassed my expectations, I simply can't wait to return. I loved the campfire and the sink to wash dishes and had the perfect trees to throw my hammock up.
this is special land and you feel it and if you let it, it will gift you so many precious happy gifts. Thank you for such a wonderfully place of beauty with so many special touches.
the place is so special, so much privacy and just a space of absolute serenity and beauty. The creek, the mineral spring, the paths to walk and the facilities for the price is a gift. It is one of the most beautiful places and i can't reccommend it enough. The hosts were avail. and helpful and the compost and bbq. great, but the tent sites so wonderful... it's a place of beauty! Note, the drive in and out are no joke, but the hosts make that clear... id say only arrive daytime. As a woman camping solo, I felt safe and was so happy with my stay, I booked a third night!
Jami is just the most gracious, kind host(ess)!
Her place is just so special. It’s everything you expect and more. The creek is just lovely and the hikes local were so great! It just feels so sweet here and we can’t wait to go back. We really enjoyed our two nights here so much! What a gem of a property and stay. Heavenly find!
I booked one night and stayed three I loved it at the sanctuary so much. Kathy is a gem of a human as is Jim. The land is a healing space where these dear rescue animals are cared for and loved so dearly. I loved every aspect of camping here, and spent two nights solo and had a friend join for the last. I can't speak highly enough of the special qualities of this place. Facilities are just as described, they even put up a bug tent which I didn't even need, and Kathy went above and beyond to share the animals with me and teach me so much. I so enjoyed connecting with her and the animals. My heart is fuller after my time there, my senses awakened, my body calm and I loved the animals so much I was emotional leaving. It was more than camping for me, though the pond, the firepit, the stars and the creek were divine... it awakened a part that so often goes to sleep in daily life. I'm so grateful for them opening up this precious space and land and home to share with us to gift us a sanctuary, just as they have these incredible animals. I can't wait to visit again. Now I understand why I sometimes read, "i want to keep this a secret before every one knows"... It's a treasure of safety and peace and delight. My friend said "this like a children's fairytale"... I agree, it was for me. Thanks Kathy and Jim and all your sweet animal babies! See you as soon as I can!
This was a wonderful place to spend my first time solo camping... I would book a more secluded site than #1 next time but what a sweet, peaceful place. Never met the hosts, did get lost trying to get back to camp first night, so it would be amazing if the directions to the beach had one extra sign, the pygmy forest I got lost a few times and a man that worked at the farm said it's so common, so an extra sign would be amazing, it took me hours at dark trying to get back... aside from that WHAT a wonderful place and special campsite. Thank you so much for having me... I can't wait to come back! p.s. if you have time the Russian River Gulch hike and grounds are beautiful to the waterfall... what a wonderful time... I stayed an extra night I loved it so much!
