About Us

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, morning and evening animals feedings, hayrides, skeet and trap shooting, archery, roping, seasonal creek walking, and hiking.  And when the sun goes down, relax as a rancher would with a BBQ, bonfire, outdoor movie, and epic star gazing.  

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.

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.
