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 Paso Robles: 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.
