We loved our stay at the Treehouse. Gary was very responsive and helpful the days leading up to our trip, providing us with directions and maps. We ended up arriving after sunset and were able to locate the property and treehouse with ease.
*The road has a few ruts and rocks along the final approach to the property, just go slow and navigate around 'em and you'll be totally fine (Our low clearance Honda Fit made it through without scrapping the undercarriage even once.)
The treehouse itself was very clean and made for a cozy night. We woke up before the sun crested Mt. Shasta and walked out to the meadow to watch the sunrise. I highly recommend you try to do the same!
We loved our visit to Mission Peak Wine. Brittni, the Host was very communicative leading up to our trip and gave us a warm welcome and lay of the land upon arrival.
We set up camp in the Clubhouse area where you'll find a firefit, grill, flush toilets, picnic table, shower, and plenty of shade under the trees. The camping area borders open space but still feels private as the main house and other structures are surrounded by lots of greenery. The structure visible in the photos behind the tent is the clubhouse, not a residence. (Currently undergoing renovation.)
Parking is available right next to the site as well, so it's easy to carry your gear over. The clubhouse area would be a great location for a larger group camping trip.
We also ventured over to "One Tree Hill" to check out the 360 views. At the top of the hill you'll find views of the Bay, Mt. Diablo, Mission Peak, the Altamont Pass, and everything in between. We brought our small 1P tent over to lounge in while taking in the views and to see what it would be like to camp at the top. Be sure to message Brittni before booking if you're interested in camping on the ridge, she may be able to make the site available if there is interest. (Please note: there are no amenities at this site along the ridge other than a great large bench)
Last but not least: The communal lake area is a dream, theres plenty of area to lounge out by the lake, and there are even canoes that you can borrow to paddle around in!
We absolutely loved our stay at Wendi's place! We felt welcomed and cared for from the moment we pulled into her driveway.
Wendi gave us a tour of the well curated and comfortable vintage trailer, her gorgeous property, and beautiful A-Frame home.
The trailer is nestled between the backside of Wendi's A-Frame and lots of greenery creating a great private area. It was +100 degrees when we visited so the trailer was warm as expected, but the provided fan which kept us cool throughout the night.
Highlights: Private river access and soaking pools right on the property, shared fire pit and picnic area for trailer & tent campers, friendly goats and cats, and the fact the property is only a short 5 minute drive into town where there is great coffee, food, and grocery.
The south entrance to Sequoia/Kings Canyon is also a short ~10 minute drive away! Great basecamp for exploring the park. I'll definitely be back.
