About Circle Bar B Guest Ranch

The Circle Bar B Guest Ranch is an ideal location for your special day as it offers both the seclusion of a private ranch wedding and the opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty that defines Southern California. We offer complete exclusivity of the ranch for the entire weekend, from the rehearsal dinner, ceremony & reception to a Sunday sendoff breakfast. The ranch was established in 1939, and has been welcoming families, couples, and groups for ranch vacations and private events for decades. With 18 Overnight Accommodations on the property, the Circle Bar B Ranch is one of the few locations in Santa Barbara that offers the space for both a scenic event and an exclusive location for your guests to stay, sleep, and celebrate for the entire weekend.

Nestled in the hills of Refugio Canyon just a few miles north of beautiful Santa Barbara, the ranch includes endless stunning vistas from the lush canyon to the Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands. The ranch is located on a stretch of the beautiful Gaviota Coast between downtown Santa Barbara and the charming towns and vineyards of Santa Ynez Valley. The ranch property is over 1,000 acres that is rich in natural beauty with oak trees, walnut trees, canyons, creeks, hidden waterfalls, hiking trails, and endless scenic vistas. We offer numerous different indoor and outdoor ceremony and reception locations, and allow you the opportunity to customize the ranch space to fit your individual tastes and preferences.

    I just had my dream wedding at CBB and could not imagine having had it anywhere else!!! Our family and friends (especially those who stayed on site for the weekend) said it was the most amazing venue and wedding they'd ever been to! Henry, Kathy, Sammy and ALL the rest of their staff were so sweet, warm, accommodating, and easy to work with. Their food was to die for (people can't stop raving about it... and these are San Francisco foodies!), their property is gorgeous, and they're pretty much the most easy-going staff you could imagine working with. My family and friends loved them. It's so cool that you get the whole property for the weekend (makes you feel like your wedding's not over in the blink of an eye) and everyone staying on the property got to know each other so well. I love seeing pictures of my friend's horse back riding while I was getting ready on Saturday- I highly recommend doing that while you're here- stunning views! If you're looking for a chill, rustic wedding venue, look no farther!!! I just want to go back and do it all over again.

    Honestly, I couldn't have asked for better. Everyone left the wedding weekend saying how amazing Circle Bar B was. The staff was so helpful but almost invisible to the guests, who assumed everything had just been planned perfectly (HA!) 53 of my closest friends and family stayed with us and I loved the communal breakfasts and hours of hanging by the pool with the kiddos. The best part??? We partied until 2am on our wedding night (DJ shut down at midnight)- didn't have to go anywhere because the whole property was ours for the taking. Don't pass this up!

    Great venue! The ranch is very scenic and the staff is really friendly. Tasty food and drinks, too! We loved that our family and friends could stay on site, and the group horseback ride was so fun! Our guests also enjoyed the pool and game room over the weekend =) Fantastic experience overall!!
