A timeless roadside resort in the heart of California’s high desert. 

Cuyama Buckhorn is nestled within The Hidden Valley of Enchantment, a peaceful oasis, which sits in the middle of 4 counties just on the other side of Los Padres National Forest from Santa Barbara. We offer an intimate getaway filled with thoughtfully crafted meals, a bar where conversation flows effortlessly and revitalized rooms with stylistic nods to the past. Our valley rests between star-filled night skies, for some of the best stargazing in California and pastoral golden mountains boasting hiking trails and breathtaking wildflowers. The joy of shared experiences and creative spirit at Cuyama Buckhorn creates a connection to the natural beauty of Cuyama Valley.

STAY

Each of our 21 guest rooms has been designed to bring comfortable elegance to the high desert with modern amenities like free WiFi and Bluetooth radios, complemented by custom-built furniture. Vintage accents, with a nod to our mid-century history, add a classic feel to these revitalized rooms. Locally-stocked mini bars, semi-private patios, plush linens and sustainably produced bath products are lovingly curated.

Eat & Drink

The Buckhorn Restaurant & Bar was originally established in 1952 as a roadside stop for weary travelers and as a gathering place for the local community. More than 60 years later, The Buckhorn has become an historic establishment featuring treasured favorites, as well as a new focus on connecting our food and beverage offerings to the local yield that surrounds us. We work to celebrate Central California’s bountiful ingredients across our food and beverage program from our farm-to-table restaurant and bar, to our craft coffee shop and market, to the mini bar trays in our guestrooms. We’re proud to provide elevated and unexpected farm-to-table comfort food for everyone to savor.
