Description

The turn into the driveway restricts the size of a 5th wheel to around 34 ft. and a trailer to around 30ft. We live on 8.67 acres. Property is fenced. There are horses and dogs allowed to roam free on the property. Dogs are very friendly. Not a good location if you don't like dogs. Hasn't ever happened but it is possible that horses can kick vehicles if they are in the way when horses are striking out at each other. There is parking just outside our gate if you prefer. No smoking or campfires allowed on the property due to fire danger. This is rattlesnake country so be alert and don't climb around the rocks. There could be coyotes in the neighborhood so small dogs must be watched. Please keep all dogs on a leash. Very quiet, peaceful location. Wonderful view of the valley.
We have decided to request no children. The risk of a child that's never been around horses being hurt is just too great.

House Rules

No smoking on property. If the gate is closed when you arrive, please keep it closed. Please, no aggressive dog breeds. Dogs must be kept on a leash. No children allowed at this point in time. This is a mini-ranch with free roaming horses and we don't want anyone to get hurt.

Access Road Conditions

Paved road to our driveway and then short gravel driveway. Entrance to driveway restricts size of 5th wheel to 34 ft. and a trailer to 30 ft. It's a circular driveway so after you open the gate, continue straight to come up to the house. The automatic gate opener is not working so just unlatch and latch the gate after you come through. There are three horses and one mule free roaming the property.

Stunning views & peaceful property

What a perfect date night in the Sierra Foothills! We live about an hour from here and this was the PERFECT little date night. We went to wine bars in charming downtown Grass Valley (Thursday outdoor market!) & Dinner in Penn Valley at the very upscale food/casual atmosphere restaurant Twelve28 (10 min away from here!) We set up the rig just before sunset and enjoyed our wine and views. We woke at 4am to step outside and admire the full strawberry moon... beautiful! Now we're enjoying the birds, horses and view from our rig. Thank you, DLM29!!

Relaxing farm location

Beautiful views and friendly people! Definitely a place to visit or revisit, as long as you like animals. If you aren’t friendly with animals, it may not be the best stay for you, but we adored all the friendly dogs and cat roaming the property.

Our favorite!

Best place we’ve stayed yet! Such a beautiful setting, and we loved having grazing horses and mules nearby. Enjoyed the nearby Buttermilk Bend trail too. Hosts were so nice and welcoming, and we enjoyed her sense of humor. They sent us off with helpful RV instructions for the next leg of our journey!

Very lovely place

We really enjoyed discovering this area as we drove to their property. It was so beautiful. Our host welcomed us and gave us options of where to park all with incredible valley views. We settled in for our evening and enjoyed the sunset over the valley and distant night time twinkling lights. This is horse property and we woke with a few noshing right by the rig in the morning. Followed our hosts directions as google maps did have a strange u-turn that wasn’t necessary.

Wonderful hosts

This was our very first experience as Boondockers Welcome guests and we loved it! Our hosts were warm and accommodating in every way - they helped us find a location with with a great view and made us feel very much at home, and the dogs were friendly and very well behaved. The most interesting site we visited nearby was the Empire Mine State Park in Grass Valley - where we learned a lot about gold mining in the area. We happily discovered that we had a lot in common with our hosts, and are leaving with new friends. We look forward to returning again in the future.

Great host and property!

We really enjoyed staying here for a couple of nights. The hosts were so nice and helpful and the property is big enough for a few RVs and has a great view. We had a lot of fun with their dogs, horses and goats too. This is a must-visit place even if it's not on your way!!!

Beautiful property and very friendly hosts!

The hosts made sure everything was going to work for me while setting up. You back into a flat area with spectacular views of the valley below including the Sutter Buttes, and with some of the greatest sunsets ever! Real quiet at night makes for sound sleep.

I am an animal lover, so the dogs, one in particular, Miss Zara, and I became good friends, of which I am sure the high end dog treats had nothing to do with are friendship! Great hosts, great views, great sunsets, which equals the perfect combination.

I recommend Danielmann’s Super safe RV property 110 percent!

Beautiful setting, friendly people

Our host greeted us and helped us get settled with the best view possible. She took us on a tour of the property to meet the horses and goats. It was sooo quiet there, we slept like babies. The property has a great view of the Worlds smallest mountain range (Sutter Buttes). I set up my camp chair and sat for hours admiring the view. I would love the return again. Great hosts!

Great stop over

Enjoyed our stopover at Dianelmann’s hobby farm. Great views of the valley. It is a very quiet and peaceful location. Loved the horses and all the puppies. Dianelmann was a very gracious host and we thank her for her hospitality.

What a pleasant surprise!

The horses & mules greeted me at the door of my RV upon arrival along with the dogs who wanted to meet Shiraz, my travel companion. Diane made it so easy for me to get situated in a level, convenient spot on the property. Speaking of the property......if you are within 100 miles, check availability, as the hosts are away at times, but this is an amazing piece of California paradise. The views go on forever!

Fun 8 acre hobby farm with fabulous valley views

Hello Fellow Boondockers
We just arrived at danielmann and it is a very fun 8 acre property with horses, dogs and cats running loose and also a few goats. We love animals......
The property has fabulous views down over the valley, and the hosts are very accommodating and friendly. We would definitely recommend this fun place to others.

We will be back

We could have stayed longer if the weather wasn't starting to get worse. The hosts at this spot are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet. We showed up later than expected, they showed us where to park and said, "Come in for dinner after you've gotten all situated." One of the prettiest places we've been to. They have a great view, and the ambiance is amazing. These hosts, and their family are so down to earth, and we wish we could have stayed longer. We are so glad to be able to call them friends now. Don't skip out on the chance to meet these guys. The views alone are worth the drive.

Amazing views and wonderful hosts

Staying with Dianelmann was so peaceful. Their home and RV site are most unique. We loved the animals and the warm apple cake. We recommend this Boondockers Welcome site to anyone.

Great hosts!

Diane and Greg were wonderful hosts, helped us with a car, fed us with very tasty soup and gave us some good advice on what to see on our journey. Oh, and Greg makes the best coffee and the best breakfast cereal ever and he shared recipe! Thanks again!
