I have stayed at Cienaga Creek many times but this time stayed at Juniper Ridge with a few friends. It was an awesome cabin. A great place for a group of friends, families and especially our dogs!! We had a great weekend and the weather was perfect. Cienaga Creek is my home away from home. Thank you again for an... More

Just returned from our fifth stay. My husband ordered a cake for my birthday. It was home baked and sooo delicious. The muffins were great too. We had a great time and so did our 16 year old dog and our young dog. We've stayed at Ironwood, Mountain Sunset and Wild Rose. All were nice.

I have stayed there many times over the years. It is a great place to get away and recharge my batteries. It is quite and removed from the crazy LA life. Trails right out your front door to go hiking. Full kitchen, coffee maker and BBQ. My dogs love it up there. The owners are the best! They bring fresh... More

The location was AMAZING. The small touches they made in our cabin to make us feel at home were greatly appreciated. I loved that we were able to take our dog with us and not worry about being away from her. The cabin it's self was adorable and perfect for my husband and I. The hiking trails had beautiful views!...

We have made multiple visits, each has been great. It is our go to place for any visit to the area. Fully set up for great recreation opportunities. Private and scenic. Clean and bright rooms, good value for all that is provided - daily breakfast is a nice touch.

From the moment you walk in the door you feel at home. There is no check in you just go to your cabin and stay until your checkout time then leave the keys on the table and be on your way. It's like having your own cabin. This is the perfect getaway for a couple. There is plenty to do... More

Cienaga Creek Ranch was just what I needed. If you need some decompression time away from the city, this is the place. Not only is the location and the accommodations stellar, but the cute little personal touches are greatly appreciated. I had a personalized little note upon my arrival and freshly baked cinnamon rolls!!! I highly recommend Cienaga Creek Ranch.... More

Cienaga Creek Ranch was amazing. Vickie, Scott, Bree and Bree's husband are fantastic. We stayed in Kopitch Cottage and they brought us fresh eggs, orange juice and baked goodies every morning. They also generously took 30 minutes out of their day to answer all of our many questions about the solar powered cabins and the nearby hiking trails. Our cabin... More

“FYI.... I have AT&T cell service & it does NOT work there so just be prepared. It's a very remote area. ”

“All cabins are somewhat secluded, but still within view of each other. For a more private location, request the Kopitch cabin.”

“Jupiter Ridge has very spacious rooms. Mountain Sunset has a hot tub in the bedroom...which could be either off-putting or exciting depending on what you're looking for. We love the Kopitch Cottage best, but it is very basic and the least fancy. It is more private in location than some of the other small cabins. All of the facilities there are great! No wifi though...did miss that!”
