WOW this site is amazing. Alan and Heather are incredibly warm and welcoming and the site itself is breathtaking. I could have looked at that view forever -- wish we'd stayed for longer than 1 night and cannot wait to return!
Our stay at Mommapeggs Getaway was absolutely wonderful. The property is very easy to find and access, and Peggy and Earl were incredibly warm and welcoming. We loved pitching our tent with the pot bellied pigs and ponies and we had a wonderful time star gazing and playing with the pups on the property.
We pitched our own tent and chose our own spot, but you can also stay in one of Peggy's tents (or in a tiny house if they're available!) and there are picnic tables and propane fire pits scattered across the property that you can use. Earl had also just put in a beautiful outdoor shower when we arrived! The facilities were sparkling clean and convenient.
Mommapeggs is about an hour from the entrance to Yosemite and is the perfect home base for adventuring in the area. We'll be back!
Thank you, Alyse, for such a restorative weekend at Hickman Family Vineyards!
We arrived on Friday evening and Alyse was there to show us around. We pitched our tent on a flat spot overlooking the vines -- there are several perfect spots to choose from -- and spent the weekend grilling, laying in the sun, drinking delicious wine, and swimming. There are several great waterfront spots nearby like North Forebay and Lake Collins, and you're located near great hiking trails as well.
There were other groups staying, and the site spacing provided privacy and peace. The bathrooms are awesome -- centrally located and clean -- and there are tables and chairs spread out outside the winery that we were able to use as well.
Such a welcome change of scenery and pace -- so glad we stayed for 2 nights.
This yurt is gorgeous and oh so cozy! Earth Castle is very conveniently located (just 20 minutes from Nevada City/Grass Valley) and Anna-Thea has thought of everything -- space heaters, outlets, books... you name it! Just bring your sleeping bag and you're good to go. I loved waking up as the yurt slowly brightened in the morning sun, and I only wish we'd had time for an astrology reading!
Loved my stay at the Inn Town Campground! The campground is very conveniently located -- just a short drive (or 20 minute walk!) from Nevada City.
We fit three adults very comfortably and the camper had everything you need: handy outlets, water, lighting, towels, bedding, and storage space! The on-site facilities were great as well -- the bathhouse is spotless and heated, and the camp hosts were incredibly helpful, kind, and generous with their time!
Galleywinter is an incredible place and Gail is a truly wonderful Host. The Barn is beautiful and cozy even on the most blustery of days, and the property itself is absolutely stunning! Highly recommend letting Gail's adventurous cat in for a snuggle or two and taking the opportunity to learn more about the work that Gail does on the property -- she's built such a special spot and I am so grateful that she shares it!
Hot tip: Blue Mountain Brewery is right down the road -- highly recommend hopping over to grab a bite and take in the view.
Twin Valley Horse Ranch is an incredible place, and Janice has poured so much love into providing an exceptional experience. The room itself is a work of art -- every detail is amazing and the room has everything you might possibly need (even a jetted tub!)
We arrived after dark and found the space no problem. There are playful cats all over the property (they aren't allowed in the room, but we had a great time playing with them outside!) and we woke up early to join Janice on her rounds with the animals. So fun! We fed horses, pigs, cats and goats, and got to see the beautiful ranch as the sun rose -- what amazing opportunity to learn from Janice!
