We just stayed at the Circle B for 2 nights and wish we had stayed longer. Cathy, Martin and their Happy Gang made us feel so welcome we didn't want to leave. The Cottages are gorgeous and real log cabin style with working fire places that you can build yourself and chillax after dinner. The Ventis brothers, Jose and Rigo...

We did the Circle Bar B horseback riding tour and really enjoyed it. It's about 2 hours and we were able to book last minute. The location is back in the hills, very beautiful but unfortunately there was just a fire in that area so it looks like you are on Mars. We rode to the top of the mountain...

We were looking for a place along the coast north of Santa Barbara (we met at UCSB) to celebrate an anniversary. Preferably, laid back but with interesting things to do. Luckily for us, we stumbled on the Ranch via Tripadvisor. Our room (#2) is roomy, has a comfortable king bed, both a sofa and easy chairs, a wet bar and...

Our entire family enjoyed the simplicity of Circle Bar B. The fact that there was no WiFi was actually what we ALL needed! We talked, played games, spent time at the pool and in the rec center playing pool and ping pong; we worked on a puzzle and stayed up one night looking at the stars and telling stories. The...

Rarely do my wife and I ever do anything out of the ordinary for our wedding anniversary. Typically, we simply buy some steaks and grill them for ourselves and daughters. While that is always fun, we decided to do something different for our 35th and get away from where we both work and live (yes, we work out of our...

She wanted to ride horses for her birthday and circle bar b was an excellent choice for us. Not only was our horse guide, Jimmy, good spirited and helpful but our whole family really enjoyed this place. Its size (small) and its reputation (excellent) and its location (unique) made for an intimate place where we met some other really neat...

We took our daughter and 2 grandchildren to the ranch for several days. Our granddaughter loves horses, so she was in horse riding heaven from the moment we arrived. Our grandson is NOT a fan, but the well equipped game room and pool were perfect. We took him to see the Mission Santa Ines which was a short drive up...

My cousin and I stayed a weekend at the Circle Bar B Ranch to attend a lovely outdoor wedding held there in May, 2016. The Ranch is about 3.5 miles from Refugio State Beach and Campground. To get to the Circle Bar B, you drive back a beautiful winding, at times one lane road, through huge old trees that over-arch...

Recently, we stayed at Circle Bar B for a wedding weekend. Everything was fantastic: nice cabin, great food and impeccable service from the friendly staff. The wedding also included beautiful custom redwood tables for the reception outdoors which added to the overall ambiance.

Spent 2 nights here for a wedding, the staff were wonderful, very attentive to make sure our stay was memorable. The meals were DELICIOUS! the place reminded us the lodge scenes in Dirty Dancing. If you want a real getaway from the "City" then this place will not disappoint you. We will be back, soon.
