About Us

It has been a long-time dream of ours to have a place big enough for our friends & family to come together and share our love of nature, music & art. This was, for many years, a someday plan. However, when Dustan developed life-threatening health issues following an industrial accident at work, we quickly realized that putting our someday plan into immediate action was the best course of action to help his quality of life.

In May of 2019, we sold our home in Escondido and purchased over 9 acres in Julian, CA, which is now known as the Reggae Ranch - named so in honor of our love of the genre of music that has brought us so much healing, happiness, and community.

Reggae Ranch is a place to find some peace, heal, and clear your mind in a natural mountain setting away from the hustle and bustle of the city, while still being within reach.

Bordered by the Cleveland National Forest and Cuyamaca State Park, with hiking trails, 360 views, and a pavilion with a stage, Reggae Ranch is a unique and special place.

We welcome local and traveling artists to visit and/or stay at the ranch, whether it's to crash during tour, take a break from the outside world, create, do a photo/video shoot, or have a private retreat.

If you would like to know more about visiting the ranch, please contact us directly.
