An Authentic Country Getaway

Make lifelong memories at the Bar SZ Ranch

Country living makes for great bonding and outdoor exploration, we have something for everyone.  Our activities page will give you an idea of the country lifestyle we live and the leisurely moments you'll enjoy. 

Remember when your parents took you camping at Tahoe when you were ten? Uncle Bob and Aunt Sue came up and you spent the days with your cousins hiking and fishing. Your nights were spent roasting marshmallows and singing songs around the campfire. Those were some of the best times of your life. 


Fun for everyone

When was the last time you saw your cousins, or the last time your kids saw theirs? Or, their uncles and aunts? The Bar SZ is a great place to come together. The Bar SZ is large enough to accommodate everyone, and yet intimate enough to insure you get to spend quality time with one another.

Get back to family

The kids can spend their days drudging through the riverbed, feeding the chickens and goats, or just exploring. You and your brother (or sister, or aunt or uncle) can go horseback riding, skeet shooting, and hiking.  When the sun goes down, enjoy a bonfire under the stars or watch a movie in the barn.  Either way, s'mores will definitely be a part of the plan.

Featured Review


What a great experience! We went with a large group of dads and daughters (ages 6-11) and had an amazing time. Tim and Michelle and their kids are a wonderful family that took great care of us.

We all had a blast with the activities they offer: horseback riding, skeet shooting and hay rides. There's plenty of farm animals for the kids and we were fortunate enough to be there when one of their cats AND rabbits had babies. Not sure if they can guarantee that experience for everyone though ;-)

It was just great to be able to drive only 90 minutes from Silicon Valley to what seemed like a different world. Of course there is wi-fi and some Verizon wireless coverage if you need it, but hopefully you can shut it all down when you get there. Even though the activities were fun, it was just nice to be able to relax and take everything in.

Together, with their ranch hands, Tim & Michelle made it an experience that we'll never forget. We'll definitely be back to check out the other homes on their ranch and do some hiking!
