What a special and unique place! Alex and his family pour so much care into this exquisite ranch. The setting is very rustic and remote (print directions to your phone, there is no reception for miles) with an awesome swimming hole/spring that feeds the entire ranch with fresh water so while it’s a farm in the middle of Los Padres Forest, it also has ducks, frogs, and herons. Bring plenty of extra clothes for cold nights, including hats (the bedding is warm!) and clothes you don’t mind getting dusty. Richard and Alex AND their pets provide excellent hospitality and the freedom to enjoy their gem of a ranch.
