Twelve years ago I came twice, once with two of my children and a second time with all six! Came for another visit today and all the facets that made me love it the first time came back. We have a big black lab who is 3, who we don't always know how to handle- but he sure did! We...

We were the last visitors to Tierra Linda as a bed and breakfast. Armando told us he had to close the business effective Jan. 1, though we are hopeful he will show up on airbnb.com. This was a return visit for the New Year's weekend, a follow-up to three years ago, when we first discovered his generous and gracious hospitality....

My cousin and I had a great visit at Tierra Linda. Armando made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay one to remember. Our rooms were very clean and comfortable, and were decorated with unique artwork and interesting photographs taken by Armando. He even showed us an amazing photo he took of the night sky with a...

Spent three nights there recently and had a wonderful time visiting and catching up with family member. At the bonfire on the first night, we engaged in lively conversation and lots of laughter with our gracious host Armando. His dogs are beautiful and well behaved for their young age. Tierra Linda is like O’Hare Airport for hummingbirds. Went out early...

The property is beautiful, the host (Armando) is helpful and knowledgeable in all facets of the area. I love to play golf and have visited several of the courses nearby; Woodbine, Eagle Ridge, Blackhawk Run to name a few. The sunsets,the open fire wood grill for BBQ and farm fresh corn are amazing, with the stars flashing at night. The...

Had a wonderful time at the dog park! Armando is a gracious host! He is a great storyteller and a genuine dog lover. We felt very welcomed. His two dogs were very friendly to our dogs. He supplied wine and bug spray! What a nice guy!

We went back to Tierra Linda and once again had a great time. Armando is the most loving and caring host. Our dogs have best time running around the main yard and then swimming in the pond. The room was very nice and clean. We enjoyed a light breakfast and also enjoyed sitting around the fire at night.

It's taken me a while to write this, mostly due to the fact that I wanted to leave emotion out of it. We selected Tierra Linda because of the recommendation of two friends that had stayed there previously. We were excited to be able to go on a little vacation and bring along our pup. The Pros: * The property...

Tierra Linda introduces us to a totally different way of life. Instead of TV, try setting up hammocks and looking for stars and constellations. Instead of walking around a mall - shopping, find a grass path and explore. Look at the hummingbirds, or all the other birds. Take your dog for a walk, take her to the beach, and let...
