This house is extremely unique as it is located on a very historical property in the heart of San Benito County. The property is home to what was once the art studio of world famous painter, Thomas Kinkade. It was also once home to the world famous cow horse Doc Bar. The house sits in the middle of an active horse pasture, allowing you to wake up to horses grazing outside your window! Picture windows throughout the house allow for breath taking views across the entire ranch. It is truly an 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 world-class hikes, rock climbing, and outdoor educational classes. The ranch is located 40 minutes from a town with shopping and restaurants.
*Note: we have a second ranch house, 3100 sq/ft. 3bd/2ba with a fire place, great room and big kitchen/dining area. The house is list as Bar SZ Ranch: Ranch House, and provides a great option for hosting a large group.
Guests are welcome to take walks around the ranch and enjoy the many mountain hikes and beautiful vistas! We also have an array of outdoor games for guests to enjoy, including horseshoes, volleyball, and croquet.
The house is private, but the rest of the ranch is a community property and all are welcome to engage in activities, based on the ranch's working schedule. All working ranch activities must be supervised by the managers. *Note: additional fees may be required for some activities such as trail rides, skeet shooting, and hunting. Please contact us for package info and pricing.
This is a working ranch. We welcome you to enjoy all aspects of ranch life with us (as much as you would like)! There is a managing family who lives on the property should our guests need anything. They are extremely happy to assist with anything from starting camp fires, to barbequing on our large outdoor grill, running to get supplies from town, or helping you experience the working side of the ranch. We want everyone's experience to be unique and suited to their personal desires. Daily chores include caring for all the ranch animals, tending to gardens, planted fields, and moving cattle, just to name a few. Guests can also enjoy guided horse back or trail rides. We really enjoy sharing all that this magnificent ranch has to offer!
