The Bar SZ Ranch is a genuine working family ranch. Enjoy horseback riding, roping, hayrides, skeet shooting, archery, seasonal creek walking, hiking, outdoor movies, and line dancing. And when the sun goes down, relax as a rancher would with a BBQ, bonfire, s'mores, and epic star gazing.
There is an art studio which once belonged to the world famous painter Thomas Kinkade and sits upon a beautiful and quiet hill that overlooks the valleys and mountains of the ranch. Picture windows allow for breathtaking views across the entire house. It is a truly amazing place to get away, relax, and rejuvenate.
The grounds are home to thousands of native birds and animals. We are just 10 minutes from the Pinnacles National Park which offers hiking, rock climbing, and outdoor educational classes. The ranch is located 40 minutes from a town with shopping and restaurants.
*We have multiple houses on the property if you are looking to get a large group together. Please search Bar SZ Ranch or inquire within for more information.
You have access to the entire ranch although we do have rules regarding the horses and shooting range. This is a working ranch so we ask that all guests take standard precautions around the animals and respect the facilities.
There is a managing family that lives on the ranch, they will be your hosts.
