Located in one of the most beautiful, least traveled areas of San Diego County, this unique accommodation was created by a artisan contractor couple with comfort and privacy in mind while offering a close to nature experience. It is a 16x20 fireproof safari tent on a 16 x 33' deck with handcrafted railings, furniture and details. The tent cabin has full kitchen designed for people who like to cook , a spacious bath with clawfoot tub, queen size bed with heated mattress, gas fireplace and deck that overlooks Oak Grove Valley. There is a DVD player, dvd library, WIFI for light internet use ( no streaming or downloading of music or videos is allowed), ceiling fans inside and on the covered porch. Hot tub on the deck as well as 2 chaise lounges and dining set for alfresco dining. The deck is designed to keep your pets in if you do not want them to have access to the yard area which is totally fenced with no-climb wire. It is suited for 2 people and is located on a private ranch in which the owners preside. IF YOU CHOOSE TO BOOK DURING WINTER OR SUMMER MONTHS, KEEP IN MIND TEMPS CAN RANGE FROM 20 TO 106 AND THE SHELTER IS A TENT....NO AIR CONDITIONING AND FIREPLACE DOES NOT KEEP THE TENT WARM WHEN IT GETS MUCH BELOW 50. THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS IF YOU DECIDE YOU DONT LIKE THE WEATHER BUT HAVE 7 DAYS BEFORE YOUR STAY TO CANCEL.
Our motto is 'you won't see us unless you need us' and we value our guests privacy so we leave them alone unless needed. Pets are welcome but because of deck elevation, it is not suitable for young children.
The tent cabin opens to the outdoors at each end for views of the chaparral forest and can be closed during bad weather or evening. This exposure to nature has a wonderful relaxing effect and the japanese call it 'shinrin-yoku' which translates to 'forest bathing', or being surrounded by a forest environment.
The main draw to this area is it natural beauty, remoteness, privacy, abundant hiking and biking trails, leash free dog trails and winery's.

Lane and I are artists/craftsman/contractors who love nature, hiking, animals and working with our hands. We get a bang out of creating spaces, transforming ugly to beautiful and providing a place for people to unwind.
Laurie Roberts purchased this cabin in 2011
We looked for a long time to find a place that was semi remote that would be good setting for wilderness vacation rental and that had a fixer house on it. We found this 10 acres with adobe home built in the 40's, an old walnut grove and knew it was the one because of the beautiful view of the valley, it was surrounded by nature rather than neighborhood and it bordered on Cleveland National Forest land. We spent 2 years restoring/remodeling the house, putting in fruit trees and garden and in January 2013, came up with the safari tent concept as a vacation rental.
Total privacy, fenced compound for your dogs, gorgeous view and incredible night skies. The tent opens at each end during the day and close it at night. Surrounding yourself with nature and it's sounds have a very relaxing effect that you cannot get in a walled in structure. The Japanese call this 'shinrin-yoku' which translates to forest bathing, or being surrounded by a forest environment which has been shown to improve mental and physical health.
Wow! We absolutely loved our stay at Camp Ribbonwood. We stayed two nights and wish we could've stayed longer. We were able to bring out two boxer dogs which was wonderful. They did not want to leave! The fenced in yard was perfect for them to run around and play. Both nights we grilled and enjoyed time in the Jacuzzi. We saw countless amounts of shooting stars and it was just a beautiful sight. The views all around were just so amazing. We just couldn't get over how awesome the entire place was. The owners were very nice and showed us how everything worked and let us have our privacy the rest of our stay. We just loved being able to unwind, BBQ, star gaze, relax, and just enjoy each other. We hope to be back soon. Thanks so much for this amazing place. We have told so many of our friends about it and everyone is screaming " I WANNA GO!" :)

This was the most relaxing and peaceful vacation. The wife and I had amazing hikes in the hills and our 2 dogs were in heaven. Completely fenced in and what felt like a private hiking trail. Everything we needed was provided. Very comfortable bed. Will be back for sure!
This was luxurious camping at its best! The location is heaven, completely secluded with an amazing view and cool breezes, walking trails and several wineries very nearby if you're so inclined. The tent/cabin was equipped with everything you could need, attention to every detsil to make you comfortable and cozy. Even the bed was extremely comfortable.
Definitely try the pizza oven, we had fun with that, and our pizza was great!
And star gazing in the hot tub was a highlight!
Even our dogs had a blast.
We highly recvomend this treasure of a glamping experience. We'll be back!
My boyfriend and I had the best weekend at Camp Ribonwood. The space is gorgeous and has everything that you could possibly need. This is glamping at it's finest. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to get away and experience mother nature, without sacrificing the luxuries of home.
We booked out trip in September 2016 for a late Valentine weekend together. We had no idea that the weekend we picked Southern California was going to have one of the biggest storms in years. People thought we were crazy for continuing with our plans but we couldn't wait to ride out the storm. From being in the jacuzzi in a major rain storm on Friday to Saturday night in the jacuzzi underneath the most spectacular stars our weekend was amazing! I would recommend this special cabin to anyone! The cabin is absolutely adorable and you have TOTAL privacy! We will be back again and again.
