The Guest Ranch

The Premier Dude Ranch of California

Currently in its third generation of family proprietorship, the Circle Bar B Guest Ranch was brought to life in 1939 by Florence Brown and Ed Randolph. During that year, they purchased 60 acres of what was an original part of the Ortega-Stokes 1843 Mexican Land Grant. Florence found the Refugio canyon with its pristine beauty and coastal appeal to be just the place for a children’s camp, and then in 1941, a guest ranch.
