I am a great nature lover who left the rat race of the Bay Area behind to soak up the rich history and laid back lifestyle in beautiful Nevada County. I have almost four acres of property and I’m happy to share space with guests - I love learning about where people come from and making new friends.
I have an Airstream I got in 2018, and hit the road when I can.
I am happy to point out local areas of interest.
Do I have pets?
You bet I do!
A sweet Rocky Mountsin Horse mare, two miniature horses, four Nigerian Dwarf goats, two English Shepherds and some house cats.
Grass Valley and Nevada City are amazing to visit! The historic Empire mine has tours and hiking trails. The old town areas have incredible restaurants, and the beauty of the area will take your breath away. You won’t want to leave!
Laurie's beautiful property is Boondocker's dream -- a beautiful, quiet setting with ample space to navigate and park; a delightful and friendly host; and even a nearby dump station. And of course it's in a lovely area with lots to see and do. What more could you want? It was a privilege to stay there and I'm thankful for generous people like Laurie.
Once again our stay at a Boondockers location was so nice we extended our time. Rockin' Horse Ranch was amazing and our hostes was so friendly and accomidating. So much to see and do in Grass Valley area. 👍👍👫🙏
Wonderful location. Amazing host. Even let us help take care of horses and goats. 👍😁👫👍
Great place to stay. Laurie1977 is an amazing host. Beautiful property. As soon as we arrived, Laurie brought my daughter (who is a little shy) to go feed her horses and goats while my wife and I set up the trailer. We were welcomed with 50amp
service and a water hose. Her wifi worked great in the morning for my online work and my daughter's school. We are hoping to stay with her on our return from Zion to Petaluma. Thanks again Laurie 1977!
Such a friendly host and great spot to stay!! She had power and water and let us use her WiFi. We wish we had a little more time to stay and chat but our nights there were peaceful and the town had everything we needed. Look foreword to visiting someday soon if we ever pass through ☺️☺️
The host was so caring and helpful. Really enjoyed my stay at their beautiful quiet place. Especially enjoyed a daily walk by a pond and a family farm. Thank you so much!!
Laurie is a gracious and friendly host. We had an enjoyable stay in lovely surroundings that were quiet and spacious. She accommodated us with an electrical adapter, too. Would stay here again
Had the most enjoyable stay! Our host was gracious and funny. The property is beautiful. We highly recommend.
Thanks again! I was able to get the rest I needed to continue our journey!
This was only our second time utilizing Boondockers Welcome and we really lucked out. Rock'n Horse ranch is a beautiful and peaceful location.
Our host was fantastic! Warm, funny and an all around great person!
Thanks again for your hospitality!!!
Upon arriving, Laurie made sure that everything was okay for me after setting up, and when completed, I had to visit her fenced in animals, Including 3 horses, and various goats, all vying to be fed first since it was feeding time. Subjectively, an array of animals and pets add additional atmosphere to the property.
Because of covid-19, not much visiting was done, but I hope to return someday to share experiences with our RV travels. It was a nice gesture when Laurie messaged me on the second day to see if I needed anything, of which I was fine. The area is very quiet and safe, and overall a great place to “RV-down,” or use as a base camp as you venture out to see the many historical attractions of this area.
I recommend “Rocking Horse Ranch” to our RV community 100 percent!
