Perfect staycation place. Gorgeous scenery, very relaxing atmosphere; our cabin was very nice and clean. Plenty of space between each cabin, lots of lawn games for kids and TV room available to use (with Covid restrictions). Anahi and Diego at the front desk were both very courteous and helpful.

My husband and I love adventures more than anything and The Ranch at Bandy Canyon didn't disappoint! We booked two cabins, one for our four boys and one for us. The grounds were absolutely beautiful! There are small refrigerators in each room as well as microwaves. There were no crowds as this is a smaller venue so the peace and quiet was perfect for us. We witnessed an engagement with our neighbors, she said YES! The Ranch kept their Christmas lights up for the month of January which made the Ranch all the more magical! The staff, well, I just can't say enough. Anahi who works the front desk not only was one of the most friendly people I've met, but she CLEARLY loves her job and loves the Ranch! She was so accommodating, answered all our questions, and made sure our stay was everything we hoped it would be. Also, Michelle who takes care of the horses was so nice and introduced us to each of them along with a little history of the Ranch and each beautiful horse. If you're looking for a quiet romantic getaway, or a family staycation, this is the perfect place. We'll definitely be coming back to hit the hiking trails we missed. This place is truly a gem in San Diego!

The Ranch was a delightful break from our workaday world. The pool was crystal clear and so refreshing in the August heat. Our cabin, Kestril, was a cozy, one bedroom setup with a couch, sink, refrigerator, and microwave in the living room. No oven/stove in the room, but anyone wanting to cook can use the bbqs at the pool. We had an indoor and private outdoor shower which gave us options. Close to many wineries, including Cordiano [10 min.], which serves a range of Italian foods along with their wines. The Ranch is 30 min. from San Diego and a world away!

The grounds are vast and remind me of a theme park with out all the rides. I love all the lights everywhere at night. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. The horse back riding is fun, I got to ride Molly the mule, she was funny ! The game room is a cool spot to hang out and watch movies. The pool and outdoor kitchen are beautiful. I have been there twice and looking forward to a third time soon !

We were looking forward to a getaway. Unfortunately the brown water in the sinks and the shower plus the strong smell of sewer ruined it. It was so disappointing because it was a beautiful setting, but nothing was worth that smell.

Response from bandycanyon, Front Office Manager at The Ranch at Bandy Canyon
Responded Mar 10, 2020
Thank you for your feedback, we are deeply sorry about your most recent experience at The Ranch at Bandy Canyon. The water system the Ranch runs on is well water and with the constantly changing weather and heavy rains that happen here sporadically, it can accentuate the sulfur smell that the water has due to the natural iron and minerals. As unpleasant as this smell may be at times, the water system does adhere to all required city codes, and this is an issue that we do take seriously. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you while you stayed here, please feel free to give us a call/email so that we may investigate this further. Again, we’d like to apologize for the experience you had at our Ranch and hope to earn back your business in the future.
