Mary is sweet and patient. Accommodating. We certainly had some production hiccups, and she took it in stride. The location is absolutely stunning. You'll want to film here, or perhaps make use of the mediation spaces.

This place is a gem. Very close to LA if you are looking to film in the woods. Mary is one one the friendliest host we every worked with. She also arranged parking for the cast and crew with a little extra fee. :) We would love to come back and work with her again. Transparent Agency
