Family Reunion at Hidden Valley

Family Reunion at Hidden Valley
August 26, 2009
We had a group of 26 stay here. 12 adults and 14 teenagers/children. There are plenty of beds, but we had some trouble putting the 7 adult couples into beds that they wanted. (Two of the larger beds are in the barn which is significantly downhill from the main buildings.) There was plenty of room for us both inside and out. It was hot while we were there though, and the air conditioning is somewhat limited. We could cool one of the largest rooms in the conference center to everyone's content, but many of the bedrooms were too hot at bedtime. (They tended to get to manageable temperatures overnight.) The caretaker was present and friendly. The trees had fruit, though we didn't pick too much. The grounds varied from exqusitely maintained in areas to other areas that still need to be fixed up following a fire several years ago. The well maintained areas were large enough for our needs. The pool, pool table, video library, and foosball table saw heavy use. The spa saw some limited use. (It was nice, we just did other things mostly.) Besides the activities listed on web site, we visited nearby Mt. Palomar for a nature hike and to see the famed telescope. (Quite a view from the peak.) The sheep that were on the property are no longer there, but we saw wild rabbits, turkeys, and other animals come through. Heavy use was made of the wireless internet with little trouble. Of note, we were asked to get event insurance at the last minute. This was an extra cost.
"We had a complete wedding weekend at this gem in the country. Live music, swimming in the pool and jacuzzi, hanging around with our loved ones all weekend; we couldn't have asked for more. We'd recommend it to folks for family reunions, weddings, retreats, etc. Be prepared to have your friends and family assist you with set up and clean up (unless you pay extra for help with these things) as this is a "do it yourself" style wedding venue, but well worth it for nature lovers."
"We have really enjoyed being here for our 60th Anniversary with all our family. We are so glad you had room and things for all of us to do...This has been a fun week with our 41 family members in a peaceful part of God's creation...Our family has enjoyed our week here and been very blessed to be together. Each one was able to find things to enjoy no matter what the age."

"Thank you for the tour, and for allowing us to go down memory lane on behalf of my mother who worked and lived here in 1954."

"I cannot think of a finer way to have spent New Year's Eve and the first day of 2008. Good company, good friends, a pool table, a jacuzzi, and live music! Wow!"
"We really enjoyed Hidden Valley, and the Dr. Bernard Jensen heritage, as well as the warmth of the hot tubs with the stars twinkling among the tree tops."
-Andy & Dalya Miri, Ralston
"We loved staying here! We enjoyed all of the views and the beauty. The pool and jacuzzi were great. We will definitely recommend Hidden Valley Retreat and Spa to our friends and family. We look forward to our return in the very near future."

"The air is so fresh and clean...I loved the time we spent with you- the mud body masks and icy waterfalls were so refreshing! Your company, the food, and the fellowship, made this retreat the very best ever!!"
