My friends and I felt honored to be hosted at the beautiful hilltop community that is Ravens Landing. Layna is a fantastic host, very considerate and mindful about her land and its resources. She rebuilt the farm entirely after it was devastated by the fires in 2015 and that alone is truly amazing. The outdoor kitchen, dinner area, bathroom and other cabins are lovely decorated and illuminated at night. Peacocks and other animals are chill. I would go again.
What a lovely Hipcamp experience. On my way to Yosemite from San Francisco, I arrived late at night but was welcomed nonetheless and was shown the path to my secluded little cabin. The Bridge is a 5-10 minute hike away from the farm and is truly adorable, while also being functional and comfortable. It even has lights powered by solar batteries. Awesome job building it, Matt!
Stellar Oaks is a great place to stay when looking for a comfortable stop along the way. The road to get there is unpaved but easy to drive on with any car. The property is surrounded by all sorts of abandoned trucks and structures—it's not the most pristine nature experience, but the tent platform was lovely, under the shade of apple trees, and the outdoor shower was the best!
The campsite map was off so I'd recommend not taking it as a reference to find your site, until it's fixed, but if you're staying at Site 2, the apple orchard is just on the left hand side when arriving at the property.
Thank you for sharing your land, Nansea!
The tiny house is lovely! I had a very restful and peaceful night. The place has everything you need, electricity, heater, hot shower, toilet, cooking utilities. It is extremely calm, private and easy to get to. You can fall asleep with the sound of the nearby creek. I was on my way to Tahoe and just wanted convenience, but I had a wonderful surprise. Thank you Sara!
