As you make your way up the path fully lit with solar lights, you will stumble upon a large deck that has a beautiful view. Take a deep breath, enjoy the sounds of nature and embrace the state of serenity on the Stargazing Deck.
Atop the property sits a massive boulder that covers a couple acres of land and gives you 360 degree views of the mountains in every direction. Look down from the highest point over the lights of Fresno to the south and Yosemite National Park to the north.If you enjoy sunrise yoga or meditation, grab your yoga mat and walk 10 minutes up the dirt road to the magic of the sun coming over the snow capped mountains. Take a deep breath, enjoy the sounds of nature, and embrace the state of serenity.
The Tiny House is a fully off-the-grid chalet that offers a cozy queen-size bed, custom-built from logs from the property to help embrace the feeling of sleeping amongst the trees where you can enjoy unlimited sunshine throughout the day and unlimited stars throughout the night.
Nestled into a Manzanita grove with insane views of the Sierra Mountains, it is equipped with a roof deck with built in star gazing net and cozy sleeping bags to relax and take in the stars.
At 5,400 feet above sea level, the sun radiates strongly during the day so we decided to use one the most lush, white ash trees on the property to create a beautifully shaded area with cozy hammocks placed throughout the treetops for people to relax and have a break from the sunshine.
With one of the most dazzling views of the Sierras, the artisanal Manzanita Lounge features a raised deck and rustic pergola constructed from trees 100% sourced from the property. As a central design element within the Canopy property, each manzanita branch was hand-placed by Canopy founders Matt & Jeff Alligood and designed to incite a sense of relaxation, creativity, energy and connection with the earth. The pergola is solar-powered and the perfect place for a relaxing nighttime yoga session, stargazing or sharing stories with old friends.
The School Bus is an off-the-grid solar powered space which has been uniquely designed to encourage coexistence with nature. The bus offers everything you need to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable at The Canopy. We believe in repurposing all the downed trees on the property to build all of our furniture.
There are countless adventures to take ranging from sunset hikes up to Canopy Rock, to exploring the Sequoia trees, to swimming in Shaver Lake or hikes around the Sierra Nevadas.
Mckinley Grove is an absolutely breathtaking grove of Giant Sequoias located in Sierra National Forest only 30-40 minutes away from the Canopy. It is a beautiful drive down Dinkey Creek Road that will lead you into these massive beauties. Once you arrive, there is a short half-mile hike that allows you to get up close and personal with these magnificent giants.
It is a perfect day trip to enjoy a picnic and spend some time with these 2000 year old trees that are over 25 feet (8m) in diameter and over 250 feet (80m) high. These trees are some of the most special living organisms on the earth.
Rancheria Falls is a beautiful hike near Huntington Lake (about 20 minutes past Shaver Lake) where you can hike 2 or 4 miles to the waterfall. If you want the longer hike, park at the sign where it says “Rancheria Falls 4 miles” or if you want to head up the rocky road to the parking lot you can have a shorter hike. Weekends can get a bit more busy, or choose to hike early in the morning. Either way, it’s a beautiful hike and waterfall!
At the top of our property is Canopy Rock, offering a 20-meter high area to tie rope on the backside of the Rock, or a handful of little areas where you can explore and find some little bouldering spots. Make sure to always climb with another partner or crash pad.
There are countless trails all around Shaver Lake, Huntington Lake and Cliff Lake as well as some trails that lead behind the property as well if you wanted to try to find “Hidden Falls”, a 50 ft. waterfall where we have built a little pool at the bottom where you can cool off in the heat of the summer.
There’s always a good time to get back to nature, book your stay with us today!
