Bay Area Company Retreats

The Premier experience for Corporate Events and Team Building Offsite

You rely on your team to perform. No, you demand they perform. They work hard for you.  They are a team, your team, and you work hard for them.  Sometimes you fight like cats and dogs. Sometimes they make you so angry you could spit.  But when it comes down to brass tacks, you have their backs and they have yours.

The Experience

The Bar SZ Ranch is a genuine working family ranch; you can immerse yourself in a lifestyle that we love to share with others.  While onsite you are welcome to feed and groom the animals, collect chicken eggs, go horseback riding, learn to rope, practice archery, take a hayride, go skeet and target shooting, explore the creek, hike the vista, play games, BBQ over oak, sit around the campfire, roast s’mores, soak in the stars, learn to line dance, and more.

It’s a great place to slow down life just for a second and relax.
— Kyle

The Animals

We have goats, chickens, sheep, horses, ponies, donkeys, pigs, cats, ducks, rabbits, guinea pigs, and one great white Pyrenees named Faith who protects our animals.  You are welcome to feed, pet, and play with them during your stay.

We got up early to help feed and groom the farm animals (pigs, horses, goats, sheep) and felt like we were part of the family. They made us feel so welcomed and taught us all about what it takes to maintain a farm.
— Kayla

Nighttime Entertainment

In the evenings we offer music and an oak BBQ at Doc's Bar with a campfire, pool hall, darts, poker room, lawn games, ping pong, corn hole, and more.  Be sure to bring s'mores for dessert and the drinks of your choice.

As a coordinator that works venues all over the Bay Area it’s always a pleasure to find one that has a staff with a well oiled machine that is dependable and fun to work along side of.
— Jamie

Meetings and Eatings

Although we encourage all play and no work we understand if your team needs to meet while onsite.  You will feel the same creative energy and inspiration world renowned artist Thomas Kinkade felt the first time he set eyes on the ranch. Imagine holding your brainstorming session in his Art Studio with breathtaking views of the Diablo Mountains. No outside distractions, just inspiration.  This is also a great place to gather for meals unless you prefer to eat outside at our picnic tables.  We have a projector, screen, wifi and plenty of seating available.

The hosts make you feel at home, especially the kids! Who tips their hat these days? Well, these wonderful gentleman do!
— Katelyn

Featured Review

“We had our company retreat at Bar SZ Ranch and everyone absolutely loved it! There was plenty of space for our team to sleep and collaboratively work together. Everyone had a blast hanging out by the fire pit, practicing archery, hiking, and hanging with the farm animals. I sincerely hope we can come back for another retreat.”
