Bar SZ is such a special place, right when you get into the Village you just feel the quiet ness and solitude of farm life. We stayed at the new Cabins just behind the barn it was an awesome place to place them because you had a view of the mountains and can hear the small river passing through that about 20ft away. They had a perfect place to see the night sky as they had a huge empty space in front of the cabins. I would definitely come back here again but with a lot more people.

We ended up staying at the Ranch House and loved it. Definitely quiet, well stocked, spacious, comfortable. Pinnacles Natl Park is super close and beautiful. Communication and check in super easy.

Absolutely loved my visit to Bar SZ Ranch! There are so many things to do, the accommodations are super clean and comfortable, and the hosts are wonderful! The animals on the ranch are extremely well socialized and a delight to spend time with - who knew you could snuggle with a chicken?! I also really appreciated that we could store some food in the industrial sized freezers when we were staying in the cowboy village. Thanks for a great stay!

Our family's camping/glamping adventure at Bar SZ Ranch far exceeded our expectations! Michelle & Tim were warm welcoming hosts and their ranch setting was so much fun for our entire family. We enjoyed all the activities from horse backing riding, archery, skeet shooting, basketball, feeding the animals, collecting fresh eggs, bonfires, star gazing and yummy smores. We'll definitely be back!
