                    Ken was an excellent host and maintained great communication. The chalet is even better than it looks online! It's clean, cozy and very romantic. The kitchen has all the tools and utensils you might need and the old iron, wood/propane stove is very fun to cook on. Overall, the experience exceeded my expectations and I can't wait to go back.

                    This place is great. Great combination of cleanliness and ruggedness. The stove is worth the trip, alone. House keeps heat well and it the outdoor shower is great in the morning to wake up with.

                    Wow, Precious Forest is truly a gem! We were looking for a spot to hangout with friends without the restrictions of a campground or the expense of a giant mansion--we're thrilled we found Ken's incredible spot! We had 25 friends come up for a relaxing weekend of campfires, games, hiking and music. Ken was a great host and even cooked up a delicious and very memorable feast for everyone. The road up is a bit rough, so we decided to just do a little walk/hike from the site to a cool rock. It was 6.2 miles round trip from the site (no driving needed), and a perfect little outing. My only suggestion is to bring a french press if you're a coffee fan. Otherwise, absolutely everything you could imagine is already there--Ken has thought of it all and has perfected the "Glamping" experience!

                    Recommended for: Adventure seekers, age 55+, romantic getaway, girls getaway.

                    Precious Forest was so awesome. I hosted a 30th birthday party for my boyfriend here 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!

                    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.

                    We had an adventure getting to Ken's place and it was so worth it. 5 miles on a dirt road that leads you above Clear Lake reveals a stunning view through a clearing in the forest. When we got there Ken's mom let us know that we could stay in the Tipi or upgrade to the Sweetheart Cabin for no extra cost. We took the upgrade, but would have been just as happy in the Tipi. I never met Ken, but he was very helpful through messages on airbnb and text. His mom met us at the site and was lovely. We had a great time!

                    ken was super helpful and nice, he even stopped by the second day to drop off extra towels. the house is out of this world amazing, relaxing, views are unreal. even though it is generator powered you never feel like you are "roughing it". friends loved the grounds so much they slept out by the fire even tho their was plenty of beds. the sunsets are unreal up there and his friend who was doing upkeep on the other buildings gave us directions to a great swimming spot and checked in to make sure we were ok, but was not intrusive. there is also an amazing cat on the property, who really makes you feel at home. we had a great stay, wish it wasnt 3000 miles from home!

                    Ken's dedication to this property is apparent. He was a fantastic host and helped with everything from providing fuel for the tiki torches to giving directions to a great swimming area. We had a group of 18 and everyone had a cozy place to sleep. There is no shortage of beds! The view at sunset is breathtaking and not to be missed. We all loved our stay here. We wished we could have stayed longer!

                    We had a wonderful time at Precious Forest. We celebrated our wedding there with around 50 people and it was gorgeous. The sunset over the lake is so beautiful! Ken is a fantastic host. He has been super helpful the whole time. He recommended a party rental place, let us use his smoker and stereo, did the dishes, and just helped out wherever he could. We loved the place so much that we're going to come back each year.
