 “Romance, adventure, family, and the most relaxing nights in the ” My husband and I stayed at (very) Precious Forest for two foggy nights in February to scout out the venue and plan our April vow renewal. We came extremely prepared. We read off-the-grid, so we came equipped with water, flashlights, candles, batteries, and board games. Instead, apparently, everything was provided for, and we didn’t touch the board games because the view from the deck in the Chalet is just stunning rain or shine. There are not enough stars out there to truly rate our experience at Precious Forest. All 22 of our guests claimed that it was the best sleep they’d had in a while (we agree). Ken, the host, was the most gracious host we could have ever asked for. Normally, when you rent a place, you hope whoever owns it stays away the whole time, but we just kept hoping he’d come by for lunch! We had everything that we could have possibly needed to cook and serve all of the food, silverware, stemware, everything! When we read “refrigeration” we figured there would be a big cooler with some ice, but found that we were able to use an actual fridge. There were towels and comfy flannel sheets, and plenty of firewood. The spring water tastes fantastic and gets nice and hot. We had the most beautiful wedding, in such an amazing place full of heart and soul. In every corner of the property, you can really see the love that was put into it. Ken is just an awesome person, and we’ll never forget looking out past our guests to see him cheering us on after the ceremony. He was with us the entire day making sure everything went smoothly, and that’s an incredible thing that will keep us coming back to Precious Forest again, and again, and again.

The Precious Forest is a beautiful, magical place! We worked with Ken for almost a year on our special wedding in nature. There were times when I was worried that it would be difficult for everything to come together, but Ken worked so hard, and had such a great attitude about everything, and worked so well with all of us. He has such a great heart and really cared about making our magical event. Ken and his helpers also took care of the catering, and the food way exceeded our expectations! I would recommend you check out the Precious Forest if you’re looking for a unique event that really showcases the beauty of northern California.   Kevin B.   6/22/13~Wedding

“There is no picture or review that will EVER touch the magic of this place! It is quiet, remote, romantic and perfect. Perfect for weekends away with your spouse, perfect for a glamping (that’s glamour camping) trip with the family, perfect for getting away for some alone time! Although this place has all the modern conveniences, like electricity and running water, my husband and I LOVE to bring candles and create a romantic/rustic atmosphere… 😉 I recommend this beautiful property to EVERYONE… a stay here is Marriage Insurance…”     Words from Melissa, another happy guest! 3/21/12


Precious Forest was so awesome,  and it could not have been a more fun, magical place. We fit 20 people comfortably with room to spare.

Ken prepared dinner for us on Saturday night and it was INCREDIBLE. It was seriously one of the most delicious meals I have had all year. Walnut smoked steak, ribs, chicken, potatoes, salad. Really a tasty meal.

He was such a gracious host and I would recommend this place to anybody. Outdoor showers, toilets, and a full kitchen made this the perfect ‘glamping’ experience–rustic but still comfortable and stress free. Great fire pit, great sunsets, great time!   Christine  8/24/13

Relax and get married Precious Forest style!




*** Private Chef ***

Leave The Food And Service To Us! Rehearsal Dinners Too

We also have authentic Mexican food !

(optional but recommended!)

The House Smoked meats are delicious!  The chef/owner uses all natural meats and you can taste the quality.  Couple that with his amazing seasoning skills, he puts out a delicious plate of food! I ordered a full tri-tip roast the first time.  Also ordered beans and the Caesar salad.  The tri-tip was done perfectly.  A little rarer in the middle and and some medium pieces on the ends.  The crust was crunchy and delicious.  The sides were good too. Second time I visited I ordered pulled pork and tri-tip.  The tri-tip was as good as the first time and the pulled pork was one of the best I’ve had.  Pulled pork can often be dry, this was dripping w/ juices.  And the BBQ sauce is outrageously good. Now I’m hooked and try to head that way each time I’m here for a visit.

Refrigeration is PROVIDED!!. PLEASE bring your own ice chests and ice
for inside your cabin.
