The Guest Ranch

A Quintessential California Dude Ranch

Currently in its third generation of family proprietorship, the Circle Bar B Guest Ranch was brought to life in 1939 by Florence Brown with the purchase of over 1,100 acres in the Refugio Canyon on the Gaviota Coast of California. She found the pristine natural beauty and coastal climate to be the perfect setting for a guest ranch, and began welcoming guests to enjoy the overnight accommodations, dining and horseback riding.
