I went with my eight year old daughter-- the staff made us feel welcome and at home. Stunning setting, great meals. We did the 4 hour train ride - the guide was patient and encouraging. The landscape breathtaking - highly recommend it if you like to ride-- if not, the 2 hour ride may do it-

A last minute get away. Rooms cozy, no TV or phone, no cell service....yay! Lodge wonderful decorations. Food fantastic yummy! Horse back riding fun, guide very knowledgeable and loves his horses. Wine tour in jeep, over the mountain a must do again fun time. Dinner theater, seating process weird but really a fun experience! I will return.

Circle Bar B is staffed with some of the nicest people you will ever meet. They work hard from morning to night and never doing anything but smile. The location is fantastic. It's quiet, rustic and even though it's close to Santa Barbara you'll feel like you're hundreds of miles away. For the kids, there's a pool, a hot tub,... More

Ok we did visit at the end of the season and it was the first week in November and everywhere was quiet but in a way it added to the exclusivity of our visit. From the moment I telephoned to enquire about booking accommodation and a visit to the stable for a 2 hour ride the entire experience could not... More

My husband & I stayed the weekend on the Horse Lovers package. Can't say enough good things about this guest ranch. We booked ranch room #6 and found it clean, comfortable and the decor was super cute. The ranch is secluded so it makes for a very relaxing stay. The stars at night were incredible. I forgot a swim suit... More

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
