Cuyama Buckhorn is a timeless roadside resort in the heart of Santa Barbara County’s high desert.

The iconic property, originally built in 1952, has been re-imagined as an elevated retreat nestled in The Hidden Valley of Enchantment. It rests at the intersection of 4 counties, on the other side of The Los Padres National Forest from Santa Barbara proper; and is just two hours or less from Los Angeles, Bakersfield, and Paso Robles.

Cuyama Buckhorn offers an intimate getaway filled with thoughtfully crafted meals, a bar where conversation flows effortlessly, 21 newly refined rooms with stylistic nods to the past, and 2 acres of artfully designed outdoor space. This Enchanted Valley sits amidst star-filled night skies for some of the best stargazing in California and pastoral golden mountains boasting hiking trails, breathtaking wildflowers, and wilderness. The food, design, and creative spirit of Cuyama Buckhorn is inspired by the rich history of the local community and the bounty of Cuyama Valley.

This resort retreat boasts a full service, farm-to-table restaurant and bar, a craft coffee shop, and a market featuring house-made and local products. Wanderlust seekers can also enjoy a glistening pool to splash into under the warm California sun, a spacious jacuzzi to warm up in on a cool desert night, a barrel sauna with sunset views, outdoor fire pits and games to bring together friends new and old, as well as plenty of event spaces to celebrate the beauty of this unmatched haven.
