This was our first trip to Tennessee and feel so lucky to have been able to stay on Gabi & Jacob's Rancho! You can tell they have actually lived in this space because it is so comfortable, clean, and impeccably designed. We were very sad to leave but since we had the best visit, we hope to return again in the future. Also their Nashville recommendations gave us the greatest foundation to visit the city for the first time.
Bar SZ Ranch is a stunning property with the most hospitable land owners you’ll meet. My friends and I camped on their flat, open meadowland surrounded by views of the mountains and a picturesque farmscape. Tim & Michelle, who run the ranch, will make sure you have what you need and feel totally welcome during your stay. They have also lived very cool and inspiring lives, and are so fun to talk to.
The ranch itself is excellent for hosting large groups, and there are so many fun things to experience! We took a couple hikes on the property, rode horses before sunset (costs $, but is cheap), explored the ranch, pet the goats and other farm animals, grilled our dinner on their large outdoor BBQ, and hung out by the fire pit at night. One of the most eventful camping trips I've been on! Then on our way home we stopped for another hike in Pinnacles National Park which is only 10 minutes away from Bar SZ Ranch. Such a cool bonus hike!
In terms of amenities, there is a nice little bathroom, shower, and kitchen sink in a cute outdoor building. When we visited in November it was 75 during the day and 40 at night — so be sure to bring layers! Also, their calendar fills up quickly, so if you are lucky enough to book a stay here then start preparing for an unforgettable camping experience!!
