An original dude ranch, California style

The Old West in Coastal Gaviota

Nestled between Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez wine country, Circle Bar B Guest Ranch and Stables has been a premier dude ranch in California for over 80 years. Drawn to the scenic Gaviota Coast because of its comfortable year-round climate, dramatic mountain views, and beautiful scenery, Florence Brown purchased the Refugio Canyon property in the late 1930s and established the Circle Bar B.

Horses have always been a big part of the Brown family’s history, which spans three centuries in Southern California. Today, the Browns continue to carry on the long-time family tradition, sharing Circle Bar B’s private views via horseback with people from all over the world.
