    Fantastic venue choice

    We had our daughter's wedding here and the facility, attention to detail and assistance provided by the staff was impeccable. We couldn't be happier with our choice and highly recommend them. The vendors they helped us choose were just as great, especially our wedding planner, Joanne O. Ray was always available for anything we needed the entire weekend and had a fantastic attitude the entire weekend. Thanks again to all of you for helping make our daughter's special day so magical. The Lanzon/ Fox Family

    You did a fabulous job of giving her a dream wedding, and we were so honored you chose to celebrate with us. It was absolutely a pleasure, from Day 1 of the planning. What a special, joyful weekend! We loved being a part of it. Thank you so much for the very kind words!

    C Bar Ranch is one of the prettiest and accommodating venues in North Central Florida! Owners Ray and Nanette Holt, and their family, took a lot of pride in custom creating their venue to not only give their customers an amazing venue and experience. But they took their vendors needs into consideration as well when they designed the venue. Ray and Nanette are the epitome of Southern Hospitality and treat everyone like family, and always make sure that your special event is absolutely perfect. You may start as a customer, but you will leave as family.

    If you are looking for an amazing venue for your wedding, rehearsal dinner, corporate event and beyond, C Bar Ranch is the place to be! This venue is an example of hard work, dedication, planning and lots of LOVE! The Holts are an amazing family and really took the time to think of everything a venue could possibly need. From a planner's point of view, it's a dream, and I'm sure brides or any other clients would agree. From the bridal suite and groom's room to the sound system and awesome indoor/outdoor balcony, this venue is flat out beautiful. It's an elegant twist on a barn venue with the bonus of climate control for year round events. There are gorgeous indoor and outdoor options and plenty of charm. Between the venue and its owners, you'll be in great hands from day one. Oh, I almost forgot - there's no shortage of adorable farm animals on the property! Bonus! I highly recommend C Bar Ranch for any of your upcoming events!
