My sisters and I stayed here again last weekend for the second time in a few years. Again, we had a great time, and were treated with the utmost in hospitality. They upgraded our cabin (again) since there were three of us and it was very warm, so they wanted to ensure we had A/C. Everyone associated with Circle Bar... More

The Circle Bar B has been there in it's present form for 23 years. So even though it is quite a drive to get to it up the coast, people are drawn by the great food and wonderful experience that they always have! It is quite unique in that first you get a marvelous banquet meal outside the small theatre,... More

We had our Family Reunion at the Circle Bar B Ranch! All 28 of us including infants, children, teen’s and adults were pleasantly surprised with the wonderful accommodations, pool, food (home cooked meals were included in the cost of your room), entertainment (games) and horse back ridding that I cannot begin to express our delight! The staff was extremely accommodating... More

Recently I booked a room at the Circle Bar B ranch in Santa Barbara County, the ranch choice was made for several reason at first and that was price and quality. We needed a place close to UCSB and hotels in Santa Barbara were above and beyond. Our selection could not have been better and I have already booked for... More

Adam was our cowboy guide and gave us a wonderful experience! The views are amazing and we are already planning a family reunion to not only go on the horseback ride but to also stay at the ranch. Without a doubt, we will be back. And hope that we can once again ride on the backs of socks Trader Joe... More

Realizing we were never going to have our family schedules in sync for that kind of trip, we decided to keep it close and this is where... More

We wanted to go horseback riding while in the Santa Barbara area and in my search I found this gem of a place. We decided to book a one night stay here and a 1-1/2 hour ride. I knew this place was going to be special from the first moment we pulled up. It was so cute, quaint and well... More
