Der Wohnraum

DISCLAIMER: This is a working goat ranch, with all the accompanying strong animal smells and 24-hour animal sounds, along with an active guard dog. Our antique house with its modern guest facilities is built on a steep rock outcropping—fantastic views of the mountains, LA, and the coast, but also lots of very steep, uneven stairs. We have a large, but loving, dog—an English Mastiff/Rhodesian Ridgeback mix—to protect the property and our 30 goats from wildlife, including mountain lions on the perimeter. There is no danger to guests from any wildlife, although we do prohibit pets for this reason. This unique place is intended for adventurous people, not those looking for a polished cabin or a “dude ranch”. Before booking, please be sure you’re game for a mountain adventure and would also like to learn about milk goats and their food products, along with other home crafts practiced here. If you have any questions or concerns, please ask before you book.

The house has many ways for unsupervised small children to get hurt: stairs, fencing, tools, bees, snakes etc. Children are not prohibited but they NEED to be supervised at all times.

If you are still interested here is the good part. Bright suite on top of a mountain in the oaks with sweeping views of Altadena, Pasadena and beyond. There is a king sized bed and a twin cot available for a child, bar b que and small table on deck. Computer desk with wifi access, dresser and lots of windows. There is another room w queen bed available to rent if available for larger parties.

Completely separate Suite has its own luxury spa bathroom, closet and mini kitchen - refrigerator, microwave, coffee machine and induction burner. Plates silverware, glassware, BarBQue etc provided. Decks and patios for your use.

The suite has a private entrance and parking in gated working ranch estate. You are welcome to interact with goats, help milk or feed. Plenty of private patios and decks to hide and read or surf the internet.

We are at the end of a street of mid century modern homes. There are often deer along the road. Quiet except for the owls and the night skies are beautiful

We are in the Angeles Forest but only 15 minutes from Pasadena. Limited parking is available inside the estate gates. Hiking trails a 1 minute walk away.

My family and I had a wonderful time staying at Linda's beautiful, historical house. The surrounding San Gabriel mountains are gorgeous. Amazing to find a quiet, serene, nature-filled retreat that's this accessible in the city! Linda was so warm and welcoming, and very generous with her time and knowledge. We enjoyed leisurely mornings drinking coffee (with goat milk!), watching the animals run around, and learning about goat farming and local history. We spent our afternoons hiking in the Angeles forest nearby. The guest quarters were spacious and very comfortable, and the goats were hilarious and adorable. I would love to come back again in the future.

Linda was a very warm and gracious host. We felt very comfortable during our stay. Her place is located in the foothills which is out of the way of the hustle and bustle while still being close to all the action, which was exactly what we were looking for. We would recommend a stay at her place and will plan to look her up if we are in the area again!

The owner of this unusual Airbnb facility, Linda, calls her place “Capra Diem”, a wordplay on “carpe diem” (from "capra" from "caprine") or “make the most of it”. Linda raises milk goats, 30 at last count, right on the premises. Anyone used to animal odors—I raise goats, myself!—won’t mind the occasional, temporary, odoriferous change in wind. But, that’s more than balanced out by the spectacular view (and fresh air!) from the balcony of the wonderful bedroom suite, a breathtaking sweep of the surrounding San Gabriel Mountains, the distant towers of downtown LA, and even the Pacific in the far distance on some days. If you’re in good condition with no physical limitations, you won’t mind the very steep steps, both inside and outside, leading to the guest room. The climb is well worth it! Capra Diem’s owner, Linda, is a highly competent practitioner of animal management, as well as a master of a wide range of crafts and unusual foods. Our well-traveled host was a delight to spend time with as we discussed animals and food topics and swapped stories about our international adventures. She also helped us with tourist information, including sights to see and local shopping. Please—be sure to read Linda’s “Disclaimer” carefully before deciding to book here. Then, if you’re still sure you’re up for a pleasant adventure, don’t miss Linda and her Capra Diem!

I am an artist, engineer and a foodie. I ranch goats and chickens. Make cheese, bake bread, brew beer and cook around the world. For my day job I engineer the costumes for the Conan O'Brien Show.

I love living in the forest just minutes from my job at the studio.
