Our place is located 15 miles north of Chico in the mountains at a 3000 foot elevation. You'll drive up a country road to our property which is 500 acres in size and surrounded by forest. Our property has a wonderful pond for fishing, swimming and relaxing. The forest is loaded with deer, squirrels, turkeys and other forest animals. We also have numerous walking trails. Our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids), and dogs (no cats please).
“This bungalow in Maple Creek Ranch was perfect for what we needed during our extended stay of 5 weeks. Nearby hiking and creek swimming in Chico was a highlight. Ron and Kristin got us everything we needed and were such welcoming hosts. We spent a lot of time enjoying the new BBQ and fire pit outside. The pond was fun with boats and turtle viewing, plus a bathroom and changing room nearby. Also, we were delighted to see a black bear hiking along the railroad tracks! The kitchen has a great stove and plenty of space for cooking any meal. The AC was powerful and much needed during the heat wave. We would recommend this place for an extended stay and hope to return again soon!”
We’re taking extra care to disinfect frequently touched surfaces between reservations and are happy to be able to offer our country space surrounded by fresh air and beauty and continue to help in the process of rebuilding Paradise, CA. Velasquez Tambo Ranch welcomes you to our Tiny House, a fairy tale cottage of cedar shingles. This cozy space is tucked into a beautiful brick pathed flower garden and surrounded by lush trees on 6.5 acres. Also available here is our restored 1960 Airstream.
“I had a truly peaceful time at Carolyn and Julio’s beautiful space. The tiny home itself is ridiculously cute and efficient. The water pressure in the shower was great, the kitchenette was perfect for breakfast (Carolyn provided coffee, delicious muffins, and farm-fresh eggs), and I spent a lot of time sitting on the little porch or in the garden reading. Their border collie, Caspian, came up to greet me right away (because he could tell from my squeal of joy how happy I was to meet him)! He was my best friend for the next 36 hours. I also had the immense luck of visiting while they have 4 kittens running around! I spent a whole day with the dog, kittens, cats, chickens, a sheep, and an alpaca. As my friend said when I described it all, I became a Disney Princess during my stay. The stars were also phenomenal at night, not to mention the beautiful sunsets over the ridge. Julio spent so much time answering my questions about the animals and just chatting with me (because I wanted to chat, they were both super respectful of my space and time there). I strongly recommend visiting and enjoying the animals and just sitting quietly. It does a world of good.”
Quiet neighborhood only blocks away from Chico Mall, Target, Hobby Lobby, Grocery stores and other shopping. Private Bedroom with shared guest bathroom. Garden-like backyard with fire pit, Adirondack chairs, evening lighting, and music.
“Russ and his wife were wonderful hosts. Russ generously helped me by sharing some of his tools which I needed unexpectedly while staying there. The bed was very comfortable. The ceiling fan was appreciated as it was hot while I was visiting. I didn’t watch TV but it is a nice amenity to have in the bedroom. The place was very clean and location was close to grocery stores and shopping. Quiet location, easy street parking. I’d happily stay there again in the future. Highly recommend.”
