If you are the type of person that doesn't want the noise of the city, this is and perfect getaway. I checked the location because of the reviews. This is a place for older people its a place to relax and just read a book. There's no restaurants near. I love most is the wooden covered bridge on a creek. I don't see those anymore and it was nostalgic to see one here California . I didn't stay here cause im the type of person that loves to go to restaurants and sight see. I still recommend this place for the people who wanted a quiet time by themselves without the hassle and buzzle of the city life.

My mother and sister spent a great week at Stallion Springs. We explored the area including the Tehachapi Loop (which we all loved!) We did local wine tasting and explored Tehachapi town. We visited the wind mills and a wild cat sanctuary. The resort had several activities to choose from. The room was comfortable, except the kitchen is WAY too small. We made lots of meals and made it work. With some remodeling, the rooms would be great. We had beautiful fall weather and our last day we were greated with a dusting of snow surrounding the valley we were in. It's remote for those who want more things close to where you stay. But we really enjoyed it!

I didn't post a review right after we stayed there but decided to do it now. We were their end of Sept and 1st week of Oct in 2013. Had 2 bedroom unit with a nice hide-abed in living room, Beautiful condo, was a nice get-away for my husband and I, my sister and brother and their spouses. We had not all been together for 13 years. I had read about small kitchen so we dealt with this by each of us being responsible for one day's meals and clean up so there was only 1 person in kitchen at a time. Used mostly throw away dishes and silverware. Had bbcue right outside which we utilized as well. We had been past Tehachapi on the freeway many times but had no idea this beautiful valley was there. The night before we arrived a herd of wild pigs came through and dug up a lot of the lawn and part of the golf course, so that was kind of interesting. My husband saw herd of 20 elk on golf course early one morning and we had deer right outside by our car. Would stay there again and probably will sometime this year. Visited rr museum and city museum and drove to the wild cat rescue one day, saw many species we were not familiar with.

My husband and I first time went to Stallion Springs Resort in late May 2013 for a week of timeshare exchange through RCI; AND we were glad we did -- the resort staff was incredibly awesome, the resort was so lovely and located in a quiet remote location with beautiful setting, that we are returning in the summer of 2014.

Resort personnel was very friendly, helpful and approachable, and guests at the resort were very nice and friendly too. Staff provided lots of information about things to do and to see in the area at a wine and cheese welcome party on Sunday afternoon, which was just that. Other than it taking place in a model for the new units, there was no sales presentation, which was refreshing. They also provided a cook-out on the grounds on Wednesday afternoon which was free. We had never stayed anywhere where there wasn't a charge for something like that. The resort offers several inexpensive tours including a local winery tour, and a complimentary tour of retired racehorses ranch, an ostrich ranch, and an alpaca farm. They even have a fun bingo evening with prizes.

We stayed in an extremely comfortable beautiful clean and large 2-bedroom 2-bath unit, and the large sofa would open out into a bed in the large front room.. The covered porch with table & chairs overlooking the golf course is where we spent most of our time outside enjoyed beautiful weather. This older resort has all the comforts of home, except for the kitchen and the two baths being so small. There's a nice jetted tub in the "master" bath, but too small to stretch out and relax in. The "mini' kitchen is more a 'micro' kitchen with tiny bar sink, cramped 4 burner stove and very little counter space, and yet I was able to prepare our great lunches/dinners. With menu planning and forethought one can make this small kitchen work fine. Kitchen utensils, dinnerware, glassware, pots and pans, etc. were more than adequate. Clothes washer/dryer combo in the "master" walk-in closet, and free wifi in the unit were big pluses at this resort. We also liked that housekeeping came around and emptied the trash like three times per week, and left clean towels and wash cloths, if guests needed them.

Although Stallion Springs is a very quiet resort, as many people have mentioned, there is much to do in the Tehachapi area. If you are looking for night life or great restaurants, this place is not for you. If you are interested in history and beautiful scenery, it might be for you. It is a good jumping off point to see everything from the Sequoia National Park, to the famous train loop completed in 1876 and still in daily use today, to Edwards Air Force base. Nice 18 hole golf course is next door to the resort. For a few times within a week stay, we went to and had delicious Thai foods at King of Siam, and good tasting Vietnamese meals at Blue Ginger Pho; both restaurants are in Tehachapi, their wait staff were very friendly and attentive, not to forget the awesome owners.

We've been to the beautiful Stallion Springs Resort only once; but we plan to return next summer! We certainly enjoyed the relaxing pace of the secluded area and the friendly community, especially the incredibly awesome resort staff and pleasant senior guests. We highly recommend this lovely Resort to anyone wanting to get away from everything and enjoy Mother Nature's creations in the Southern Californa High Desert and Sierra Mountains.

We just had a week at this small resort nestled in the mountains just an hour away from Bakersfield. Connie, the weekday employee, was very helpful. Due to a misunderstanding on my end, Connie took care of it so we would have a full week at Stallion Springs Resort. My husband needed to work all week (on line) while I relaxed and had fun. (Wi-Fi connection is good by the way). I took the 2 hour hike guided by Zach who told us that there are 40+ miles of equine/hiking trails that weave in an out of the hills and canyons surrounding the resort. I also took in the guided tours through the horse rescue farm, ostrich farm and the alpaca farm. I also took a day to wander Tehachapi's arts/crafts/antique stores. We took a day driving trip through the Mojave and into Death Valley park. My only disappointment was that the resort itself doesn't have a pool - you need to drive 1/2 mile to the golf club, and it is only open limited hours (golf too). The resort does have a spa though. Boron CA isn't far and you can take a tour through the Borax mining operation. All the staff were friendly and helpful! Temperatures were in the 70s and 80s during the week with a couple days of semi cloudy skies. We ate at two local restaurants and Dominico's (yummy!) in Tehachapi.

Room Tip: We had a room (4414) that was away from everyone on the end. We saw deer, rabbits, millions of grou...

Stallion Springs Resort has a Tehachapi, CA address but it is about a 25 minute drive to the edge of the city of Techachapi. So if work stress leads you to want a place to chill out this will do fine. Our timeshare unit was #406. One bedroom, large living room (see photo below), small kitchen (see photo below), and very small sink. But it had a very nice porch with plenty of room for the table and four chairs. Great for reading etc. Even in the first full week in August there was a comfortable breeze that led us to not need the AC. Don't know how much breeze there was on some of the golf course facing units.

There is some good hiking right across the street from the building that contained our unit - Pipeline Trail, to Horse Thiefs Trail etc. But if you want to do more hiking for example to the peak of Tehachapi Mountain, or the very interesting Pacific Crest Trail along Cameron Ridge among whirling wind turbines you will need to drive quite a ways. There are NO trees on this part of the Pacific Crest Trail, just wind turbines, take lots of water. Also the well know Tehachapi Loop is about a 40 minute drive.

Room Tip: It is our understanding that the one bedroom and two bedroom units have about the same square footag...

We rented the 2/2 unit and it was nicely appointed and comfortable. The kitchenette was small but adequately stocked with the necessities. A gas BBQ in a nice shaded area was near our unit. We cooked most of our meals there & the small kitchen/sink was no big deal! Be sure to take your coffee & other condiments that you typically use. We enjoyed sitting on the covered patio which overlooked the golf course & enjoyed watching the wildlife come & go. Lots of cute bunnies, ground squirrels, humming birds & a couple of deer were spotted! Judy checked us in & was great in suggesting things to do & see. There was a variety of planned activities offered that guests were invited to: hiking, wine/cheese reception, area tours & BBQ which were pleasurable. They had a nice selection of books & vids to loan. No gym available but we took fitness vids with us & exercised in the unit. The spa was a lovely way to end each day & there was a pool available at the nearby golf course. We visited local activities at Railroad Road Museum; the Loop; the o\Ostrich farm, 2nd Chance Recue Ranch, The Cat House rescue & Triassic Legacy Vineyards [Chuck is a lovely man]. Enjoyed meeting the locals. Great place to do a lot of relaxing! Took a day trip into Universal Studios which was great fun & a pleasant drive. We took our 16 yo son & he really enjoyed having his own room/bathroom & our vacation time.
