Private, very quiet, restful, surrounded by woods. Host was joyful, energetic, available and helpful. Environment was clean and there was lots of variety (yurts, woods, but also more yurts, more woods, cabins set deeply in woods as well, a gym w lots of things to do, labyrinth, tennis, cafeteria, and a gentle dog/partner to host). Also lots of camping spots available so you can combo yurt/tent/cabin. Great for families, but also superb for groups of friends and for retreats of all sorts (if they are kind, loving, peaceful variety). Highly recommended and hats off to the host who clearly lives inspired and therefore has been able to create this place.
We had a lovely experience in the woods next to a pretty lake with swans. We pitched our tent and a hammock, had a fire and cooked out. We enjoyed the row boat on the property. It was very quiet and there were no lights from the city or other houses. We would return! A great adventure for our two children.
We had a lovely visit at the Lovelight Ranch. Our family of four (two children aged 10 and 8) made our base at The Star Bed. We had plenty of room for all our things up there, plus we had the nice indoor toilet & outdoor shower just below. We also had use of a refrigerator (this may not happen for every visitor depending on crowds) and full use of an outdoor kitchen. Julie and Michael, our hosts, were fantastic - so hospitable and friendly, accommodating and flexible. The Star Bed is so much fun -- waking up to glorious sunrises, settling in as the sun went down, and feeling the breezes throughout the night were the highlights. The king size bed was mighty comfie, too! The rest of Lovelight Ranch is fascinating -- several other camping spots that are equally cool to the Star Bed, a raised pool, a swingset, lots of swinging seats and lounging areas throughout the property, two tortoises, and two or three really sweet, friendly (but not overly) dogs. I would definitely camp at Lovelight again. It was a good midway base between the main Joshua Tree park entrance on the north side and the Cottonwood Springs entrance to the park on the south. Fantastic time. Thank you Julie and Michael!!
