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.
Enjoy fabulous hiking through our oak forest on woodland trails and along tree-lined roadways - all without ever leaving the privacy of the property. 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.
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. Sleeps a total of 44 in beds. Ask us how we can accommodate larger groups (up to 70).
This is a wonderful location for retreats, workshops, family reunions and weddings. 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.

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.

Year Purchased: 2007
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 Templeton: 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.
