David and Elise were stellar hosts and have built a really special place in Shelterwood. There is everything you could want and more from a camp/glamp spot. We stayed at the group site with 3 tents and wonderful beds. Shelterwood is extremely private, and quiet. Each tent felt like a mini hotel room that even had a place to charge your phone! The fire pit in the middle was perfect, and made it feel like an outdoor living room. There are also many hiking trails to explore on the property, but don't forget the bug spray. If you are looking for a great getaway, Shelterwood is a wonderful place to reset and enjoy the outdoors. (They also offer catering from Hops and Hominy in SF!) Highly recommended spot!
I had never slept in a tipi before this trip and I would highly recommend it! Maggie's land sits on around 10 acres right along Mill Creek and right across the PCH from the ocean. It is a secluded, special place. The tipi itself was really special, she has 2 on her land and the 16' smaller one was where we stayed. We were able to have a fire inside the tipi and felt very private. The creek is around 20ish feet from the tipi and the sound of the creek was very peaceful to sleep next to. The outdoor kitchen was stocked with all the things you could need to cook and serve, make sure to clean up after yourselves. The farm likes to keep it's carbon footprint down so try to use propane sparingly. There is all recycling, trash, etc. near the parking area. Try to get there before sundown if possible, we weren't able to and Maggie was there to greet us when we got in. The land has goats, chickens, a couple hogs, a curious cat, and dogs. We also were lucky enough to be there when Maggie had a litter of PUPPIES.
Off the farm there are tons of options for hiking, swimming when it is warm enough, and cruising the 1. We hiked the Mill Creek Trail right off Nacimiento-Fergusson road, the trailhead is right by the farm. The hike is wonderful, and provided a lot of shade from the redwoods, followed the creek and no one else was walking it. (Be mindful of poison oak though!) We drove North up the 1 to grab some extra beverages at the general store in Loma Vista, then back down to Sand Dollar Beach in the afternoon. Highly recommend watching the sunset from Nacimiento-Fergusson road, it is right above the campsite and the view is amazing.
Overall had a wonderful experience. Be respectful of the hosts, they are offering up a pretty unique place. :)
The Well House at Separate Sea Star Point is a quiet and cozy getaway. Upon arriving we met the land owner Ben and he showed us around the property. The private campground at Seastar Point on the cliffside is a short walk down the hill from the main house and Well House. (For larger groups it would be great to book both the campsite, and the Well House.) Ben was extremely accommodating and easy going. The Well house itself is perfect for a couple and has a great deck to gather around with fire pit and grill if needed. There is a beautiful view to the ocean through towering redwoods from the deck. The ocean can be heard from most of the property and there is even a cove to sit above and enjoy a drink. The Well House sits fairly close to the PCH and can be a little noisy when trucks roll through but luckily there is very little traffic in Ocean Cove. Ben also allows patrons to use his restroom, shower, and kitchen in the house. Short drives in either direction will take you to some breathtaking views and quiet beaches.
