Really a nice spot out in the country for a dinner under the stars and a simple but entertaining play!

In 2006 we had a one-week reunion for 45 members of our extended family here, and they arranged a wine presentation, martini tasting, musical group and birthday cakes for us. This is a wonderful family-run location to get away and relax, with hiking,... More

We stayed at circle Bar B Ranch just overnight and had a wonderful time. The cabin was beautiful and the food was delicious. We had a fun trail ride the next morning with beautiful views of the mountains and coast line. I would like to return when we have more time. All the staff were very nice.

If you are a horse lover and nature lover this is the place you. The food and lodging were better than I expected. The horses seemed well treated. The location was up a coastal canyon - close to Santa Barbara and to the San Ynez wine area. Ride a horse in the morning, do something else in the afternoon or... More
