Bordered by the Los Padres National Forest and the Santa Ynez River, Rancho Oso offers acres of beautiful scenery and endless opportunities for horseback riding, hiking, and fishing. Our dude ranch has cattle grazing in the fields and horses that are gentle enough for beginners. A unique cobblestone lodge with a huge fireplace brings the flavor of this western preserve alive. Come stay in a cabin resembling an Old West building or a covered wagon sitting underneath the stars. Spend the day relaxing at our pool and spa, take a short drive to the tourist mecca of Santa Barbara on the Pacific Coast, or head over to the unique town of Solvang.
