Above and Beyond

January 29, 2023


This is the second time we have stayed at this property and it is truly a gem! John and Tammy are amazing hosts, super communicative, sweet, and helpful. Tammy is an amazing chef, so you absolutely have to order at least one meal when you stay here.We were celebrating my girlfriend’s birthday this time and […]

Perfect break from hectic San Francisco life

January 3, 2023


This was the perfect break from hectic San Francisco life! John was so kind and helpful! His farm is lovely and his dogs, mini pigs and chickens are so cute!! We had so much fun playing with the animals, walking around the place, and even slack lining. The studio was quiet, cozy, and peaceful. It […]

Top quality hosts

January 1, 2023


We had a wonderful stay with Mark and Tammy at their ranch. They were absolutely top quality hosts, and this stay genuinely feels like a proper bed and breakfast.AirBnB has a lot of really basic, barebones, boring, sterile apartments and hotel equivalents, and we’ve stayed in a ton of them, but this is not that. […]

Highly recommended property!

November 24, 2022


This was such a great find! I highly recommend this property.The hosts are lovely, and the dinner and the breakfast we ordered were wonderful. They have “to go” boxes if you can’t finish it all, you just have to ask. The bed was super comfy. The shower was lovely. Lots of games. Great wifi. Lovely […]

I would love to return

August 18, 2022


We had a lovely time staying at the farm for the most part of a week. We had two delicious breakfasts and dinner one evening provided by Tammy. It was too hot to eat al fresco but we did have our morning coffee under the beautiful tree in the yard. I believe the tree was […]

We loved it for our first visit to the area…

August 16, 2022


The Ripe Choice Farm was an ideal place for our kind of trip. Great room, great hosts, excellent meals and food available, and a working farm/vineyard to explore. All the animals were very friendly! We loved it for our first visit to the area and we hope to return.

Loved our stay

July 29, 2022


Having grown up in Kelseyville, it was so heart-warming to enjoy a true farm stay, complete with piggies and bats and the fresh smells of an onsite apple orchard, vineyard, and a shady yard. The barn loft is so roomy and quiet! We loved our stay!

What a gem!

July 29, 2022


What a gem! The converted barn loft was spacious and included many special touches (eg, comfortable bed, decent sized fridge, spacious bathroom, soft towels, and air conditioning!). The sunrises and sunsets were my favorite part of the day. Having the opportunity for me and my dog to greet their pot bellied pigs, chickens and tortoise […]

Wonderful barn loft

July 18, 2022


I had a wonderful short stay in the barn loft – and hope to return. It was large, comfortable and breezy with lovely views of the farm. I especially enjoyed strolling through the grape vines and fruit trees and relaxing in an Adirondack chair in the shade of an old oak. Friendly owners and a […]

The best deal ever!

May 12, 2022


The Ripe Choice Farm and Barn are the best deal ever! Peaceful, beautiful and full of interesting places to walk. Loved visiting the animals each day. Rosie and Buddy, pigs, are very friendly. The tortoise was fun also.Tammy’s cooking is sooooo delicious. Mark is a responsive host and full of wonderful information about the surrounding […]

5 Stars

March 21, 2022


Great place, lots of space, dog friendly, out in the country where it’s nice and quiet but still close to all the local spots and stores. It is a 5 min drive to the closest launch ramp into clear lake, and the owners are the coolest people! P.S. Have Chef Tammy make you dinner! 5 […]

Best Harvest Host experience we’ve had

March 18, 2022


Our stay with Mark and Chef Tammy was hands down, the best Harvest Host experience we’ve had thus far. Mark has excellent communication skills through the HH app and texting, before your arrival so that they are prepared for your stay.The day we pulled in, Tammy was there to greet us and guide us to […]

Atmosphere of relaxation and homesteading

March 18, 2022


The barn loft was cozy, spacious, and perfect for a week away where I could immerse myself in the details of a business reboot plan. It was super safe, which is important to me as a solo female traveler. I had tons of privacy to do my thing but knew John was close in case […]

The highlight of our stay was dinner

March 11, 2022


We stayed at The Ripe Choice last night and loved it. Mark was a great host, very interesting to talk to.The pigs, tortoise and dogs, were fun but the highlight of our stay was dinner. We ordered ahead and it was delivered to our RV. Tammy is an incredible chef. The salmon served was the […]

I saw a shooting star for the first time here!

February 19, 2022


The space was lovely, so was the location, the breakfast, the hosts, the farm animals, the brilliant night sky, etc. We were very happy about picking this place as our weekend stay. p.s. I saw a shooting star for the first time here!

Just as lovely as pictured!

February 12, 2022


The setting and views here are just as lovely as pictured! It was delightful to be welcomed by a little black and white pig wagging its tail and a large tortoise hot-footing it across the orchard. We are in our 70’s and could handle the trek up the staircase to the loft with our luggage, […]

Every single detail is absolutely sweet and cozy

January 17, 2022


I was looking for a peaceful place to get some resting days on my birthday celebration. And that place was everything I needed. It has a incredible atmosphere of home . And every single detail is absolutely sweet and cozy! Great location, very secure and surrounded by nature. I highly recommend it!

Dinner was fabulous!

January 16, 2022

Very friendly

January 15, 2022


Very friendly hosts and good space, the towns were very quiet on Monday. Their breakfast was so delicious and the animals on their farm are so cute.

Spacious loft on a beautiful property

January 13, 2022


I was looking for a quiet retreat to prepare for the new year and this Airbnb was perfect. Quiet, calm, and spacious loft on a beautiful property. I immediately noticed the care and attention-to-detail throughout the space when I arrived. Also bonus – I woke up to piglets playing with the chickens in the yard. […]
