Before we give you all the warm and fuzzy details of our beautiful land, we just wanted to communicate a few very important rules about our retreat center before you book your stay with us:
1. We have a ZERO TOLERANCE policy for PARTYING and/or DISTURBANCE OF OTHER GUESTS AT ANY TIME. The intention for Stone Mountain Retreat is for the community to come here and disconnect from the stresses of the outside world. Not respecting this #1 Rule will result in your group leaving the property immediately. If you feel partying is a potential, we strongly encourage you to book somewhere else that allows partying.
2. We love to see our guests bring along their dog(s) into nature. We have 2 puppies ourselves and love their faces to bits. Yet, it is very important that dogs be leashed at all times to respect other guests who may not be so dog friendly. So, consider bringing a long leash and/or cable run for your camp site. We also ask that you bring dog beds to preclude dogs from getting on the beds :)
With that being said, we are always on property to serve our guest’s needs. Simply shoot us a text, or come visit us and we’ll take care of you :)
ABOUT OUR LAND: Stone Mountain Retreat is on two hundred acres nestled into California’s Central Coast Mountains. It has long been a best kept secret of the central coast and was recently purchased from an amazing family who loved and stewarded the land for over 100 years. It is our intention to provide our guests with the best environment to embrace their imagination, experience freedom, and create a destination for you to build fond memories. You will soon discover that the energy is sacred, and we aim to provide a sanctuary where you can be your authentic you.
We have 5 sites to choose from: FAITH (Site 1), COPAIBA (Site 2), BODHI TREE (Site 3), BREAKTHROUGH (Site 4), and VICTORY (Site 5).
Lodging Note: SITE 1 is roughly 300 feet from SITE 2, and SITE 2 is roughly 300 feet from SITE 3. SITE 3, 4 and 5’s bell tents are roughly 200 feet from each other, and can be booked as a combined community site for guests looking to bring some more family and friends.
ABOUT OUR ACCOMMODATIONS: Each site offers roughly a 1/2 acre which can accommodate an additional 1-2 tents, currently has an all-weather 20' canvas camp protech bell tent with 2 super comfortable beds with pillows to sleep 4 (Guests should bring their own linens and blankets/sleeping bags), double door entry/exit, battery operated lighting in the tent, solar lighting panel for usb hookup (We have USB edison lights for inside tent), solar lighting throughout the grounds, shower enclosure w/ solar shower bags, super clean porta-potty restroom w/ sink, Weber BBQ grill, hand crafted eating and tree tables, chairs, 96 gallon trash bins, and more.
ACTIVITIES: WHETHER IF YOU’RE A MOUNTAIN BIKER, RUNNER, or HIKER - WE HAVE THE PERFECT PROPERTY FOR YOU! If available on the weekends, the hosts will facilitate a community fire pit for guests to enjoy some smores, chance to meet new friends, and share some good laughs. Each site’s guests can mountain bike, run and/or hike to the top of the mountain which gives you panoramic views of the central coast. It’s a special space that we have named SOARING EAGLE. Once you’ve reached its location, feel free to use the space for yoga, meditation, or setting up some tree hammocks and taking an afternoon nap prior to watching the sun set and cast a mirage of pinks, oranges and red across the mountains and coastal beaches.
DO YOU LIKE STARGAZING? Look up. As night falls, you’ll find yourself relaxing, and watching the stars. Light pollution is absent, and there is every opportunity to catch a falling star and make a wish :)
WILDLIFE IS CALLING YOU: As a guest, you’ll get to experience many of the friendly animals on the property - deer, foxes, wild turkey, lizards, and bird watching – we see many hawks, blue jays, hummingbirds, swallows, woodpeckers, robins, finches, and owls.
CONNECTION: As a retreat property, it is not uncommon that you may find others enjoying themselves as you venture throughout the grounds. Feel free to introduce yourself and make a new friend. We love the idea of connecting with nature, self-rejuvenation, and community. The property offers you every opportunity to connect with God, self, and loved ones.
“The most important and fulfilling work we as humans can do on this planet at this time is to reconnect to ourselves, to one another, and to the natural world.”
And so in closing, we welcome you to come and experience the magic of Stone Mountain Retreat. Use the land to fill your soul up with positive energy and tap into your divine. Respect the land and all things within it. Leave your mark by building stone stacks or creating a piece of art for others to be inspired by. Experience nature in its rawest setting. Embrace the freedom you deserve. Unplug and Reset. Namaste!
