If you live in an urban area, you might agree; it's all too easy to forget that we humans are also a part of nature as much as any birds, animals, insects, plants, even air, earth, and starts. Tierra Linda reminded my husband and me how essential it is for our souls' well-being to keep that sense of connection alive.... More

As I, the family dog, arrived at Tierra Linda and removed my leash I knew this was the start of the best vacation ever! I was able to explore the land guided only by my heart and Armando's DaPuppies. My new friends and I ran, raced, romped, and rolled throughout the acres of beautiful earth. I enjoyed new sights and... More

Our time of leisure and relaxation began with Armando greeting us at the gate. He welcomed us to the lush and beautiful setting of Tierrra Linda. We had the good fortune to stay on the night of a full moon that could be seen from our room overlooking the expansive yard. The room had a large and comfortable bed and... More

As long as I can remember my father has taken me to Terra Linda in both the summer and winter. It is green and lush in the summer and even more peaceful and tranquil in the winter. Ice skating on the frozen lake is a favorite memory of mine. We went back to Terra Linda this past weekend and all... More

Had not been to Terra Linda in many years and as soon as we pulled up we were right at home. Armando has kept the house and grounds in tip-top shape and it was everything good I had remembered and more. The three of us and dog had a relaxing time hiking the grounds, hanging on the beach, kayaking, fishing,... More

Tierra Linda is the perfect location for a stress-free vacation. The name says it all. It was wonderful to enjoy boating, fishing, hiking, or to just relax alongside the campfire. Tierra Linda has so much to offer at an affordable price. The best part of our trip was leaving our shoes at the door and letting our dog roam free... More

From the moment you arrive your host Armando is ready to greet you with a smile and his dogs are welcome hosts as well. The amazing 11 acre property allows a serene observation of nature from trails to beach to kayaking to bird watching there is always something to do. However, if you are just looking to relax there is... More

Staying at Tierra Linda, run by Armando is an amazing experience. We took walks in his property surrounded by humming birds, beautiful flowers, ponds, walked up the river creek and of course watched the sunset on his small man- made beach. Armando's breakfasts are plentiful and delicious and his company is fabulous. In short, if I had to describe Tierra... More

Had a wonderful visit to Tierra Linda over the weekend! The pond was so peaceful and beautiful. We slept for a few hours in two comfy hammocks under the shade of a glorious willow tree. I felt like i had visited a retreat with the therapy of nature and visits from herons and geese with spring frogs chirping! Armando is... More

Armando is a wonderful host and his property is beautiful. Our dog, Milo, had the best time of his life! He got to play with Nico and Michi all day, go on hikes, relax on a hammock and on grass, kayak with his dad and swim in the pond! And he was off leash most of the time which we... More
