Enjoy fabulous hiking through our oak forest on woodland trails and along tree-lined roadways - all without ever leaving the privacy of the property. Or venture farther and enjoy beaches, wineries, Hearst Castle, Spanish missions, hot springs, restaurants and shopping - everything from charming, locally owned and run shops to outlet stores are easily reachable by car.

The property is owned by a non-profit organization and is located in a private valley near the ocean close to Cambria, Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo on California’s gorgeous central coast mid-way between Los Angeles and San Francisco. We are located in an area of wineries and estate homes, close to everything but with very serene privacy. That rare privacy combined with convenience to all amenities is one of the reasons we chose to establish Dancing Deer right here. It's so very peaceful and beautiful and just a wonderful place to connect, unwind and rebuild.

As rental space for your retreats, workshops, meetings & gatherings, Dancing Deer Farm provides the perfect environment for many types and sizes of gatherings and activities.

We aim to support family bonding and celebration. This is a place meant to foster community while supporting practices to help restore and enhance the earth’s own systems.

And just north of that, visit the elephant seals and Hearst Castle in San Simeon! If you are here during the summer months, the Mid State Fair in Paso Robles is always a favorite activity, and easy to get to at only 8 miles away! Head south 30 minutes into San Luis Obispo for more central coast fun, including hiking some of the Seven Sisters of San Luis Obispo - our famous peaks of volcanic remains! We have hot springs just a few miles away, and on site healing practitioners offering a variety of healing modalities, so if you'd like to ensure your stay is relaxing and rejuvenating, we've got you covered! And if you like good food and good wine - this is the destination for you! With nearly 200 wineries in the county (two are directly across the street from us!), and a farmer's market almost every day, your taste sensations will be pampered and nourished! You are even encouraged to visit our 1-acre organic garden, talk to our farmer interns, and sample some of our seasonal harvest. If lake activities are your thing, it is a short drive to several area lakes: Santa Margarita, Nacimiento and San Antonio. Enjoy fishing, camping and boating activities! Take some time to appreciate our state's history with visits to some of the original California missions - Mission San Antonio de Padua, Mission San Miguel Arcangel, Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa and Mission La Purisima Concepcion are all within driving distance. Come let us show why some have called this the Happiest Place in America!...moreless

                                    What a fabulous place for our family reunion. There were 28 of us from newborn to 90 years old. 26 of us stayed there so comfortably. The property was perfect as it is so peaceful with plenty of room to walk, hike and wander. People moved easily visiting, playing, and just being. The Barn was such a wonderful space for our 90th birthday celebration. The energy is so good and loving that it added to our family's love. The kitchen was perfect for preparing food for that many people. It was in use all day as different people made meals for themselves and their own families, then for the entire group. The owner, manager and staff were friendly and welcoming. We had a few questions and they answered them in a timely manner and took care of anything that we needed. The property was clean, well-maintained and well stocked. I would highly recommend this property for large groups to have a gentle, easy time together.

                                    We recently stayed at this amazing property. There were 17 of us, including 7 children and 10 adults. There was so much room, and so much for the kids to do! I never once heard the dreaded "I'm bored!" The grounds are beautifully kept and the view was breathtaking! We saw deer and wild turkeys on 3 out of the 5 days we were there, right from the deck. We explored the area and found many great things to see and do. There just really is not one negative thing I could say about this holiday destination. From the time we got there until it was time for us to go, it was by far the best time we could have hoped for. We are planing to return next year!

                                  About: This property is owned and operated by the Center for Reuniting Families, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. On November 15, 1994, the Center for Reuniting Families was incorporated as a non-profit educational organization with the following purpose: To establish and maintain programs providing both teen-oriented and adult assistance to educate and encourage choices that are positive for the individual, family, community and for the greater stewardship of the earth through experiential exercises and to develop a teaching institution disseminating educational material to the public. In addition to our core goals, at Dancing Deer Farm we provide a venue and shared resources to other non profit organizations who address the challenges of creating ecologically and economically vibrant and healthy families and communities. Through these collaborative efforts, CRF is a center for education, research, and demonstration to develop strategies for a sustainable future.

                                  Why Cambria:
                                  Dancing Deer Farm isn't just another place to stay. With the focus of our non profit work, visitors can quickly feel the healing, calming and supportive energy that infuses this property. We encourage everyone who walks this land to be healthy, happy and respectful, and when that is done, you can't help feeling all of those things within yourself! It is our intention to have all of our guests leave our property feeling better than when they came.
