Property description

You aren't just renting a house, you're booking an authentic country getaway. The Bar SZ Ranch is a genuine working family ranch. A few days here will immerse you in a lifestyle that we love to share with others. Enjoy horseback riding, roping, hayrides, skeet and trap shooting, archery, seasonal creek walking, and hiking. And when the sun goes down, relax as a rancher would with a BBQ, bonfire, and epic star gazing.

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 2 other houses and 2 glamping horse stalls if you need to accommodate a larger group, just search Bar SZ Ranch.

About: This ranch is extremely unique as it is located on a very historic property in the heart of San Benito County. It is known around the world as the Legendary Doc Bar Ranch, which was home to the famous cow horse Doc Bar. 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.

Why Paicines, CA, USA:
This is a working ranch and 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 you need anything. They are extremely happy to assist with the ranch lifestyle 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. We really enjoy sharing all that this magnificent ranch has to offer!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It does a body good to get out in the country, take a deep breath, and relax. There is no traffic, noise, or people, just quiet country living that will leave you refreshed and rejuvenated.
