California guest ranches offer fabulous riding and year-round sunshine - the perfect USA state for guest ranch vacations whether you want to travel in summer or winter.

Top50's California guest ranches Alisal Ranch and Rankin Ranch both offer wonderful opportunities to unleash your innner cowboy or cowgirl...

A great ride! Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort

As well as being a California guest ranch, Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort is also a working ranch. Nestled in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley and the renowned Santa Barbara County wine country, Alisal has been providing guest ranch vacations for generations of families, couples and groups since 1946. Today, the romance and majesty of the “old west” remain in the California guest ranch's wide-open spaces and unspoiled natural beauty. Set on a 10,000-acre working cattle ranch, Alisal Guest Ranch blends the best of nature with exceptional golf, horseback riding, tennis, fishing, first-class accommodations, spa services and fine dining - for the ultimate California guest ranch vacation.

RankinFamily Rankin Ranch

Another California guest ranch is Rankin Ranch, a luxury dude ranch, guest ranch and working ranch located in the Walker’s Basin valley, deep in the heart of the California Tehachapi Mountains. Rankin Ranch is one of the oldest and largest family dude ranches in California and, as such, family and history make up a big part of their authentic guest ranch vacations. This six-generation ranching family opens its doors and welcomes guests to share their way of life - so you'll most likely meet every member of the Rankin family by the end of your California guest ranch vacation!
