our story



about the buckhorn


The Cuyama Buckhorn was founded in 1952 as a roadside stop for weary travelers to rest for a meal in good company and a good night’s sleep. More than 60 years later, drawing on the classic design and wonderful community, we are excited to make the Buckhorn more vibrant and welcoming than ever. Whether it’s to fuel up at the coffee shop, grab a bite at the restaurant, or saddle up for a drink and rest by our fireplace, the Cuyama Buckhorn is an inviting gathering place for people from all walks of life to come together for a uniquely charming experience.


Who We Are


Jeff Vance

As a kid, Jeff spent lots of time in Frazier Park, and has been coming to the Buckhorn ever since. He now owns a small design and build company based out of Los Angeles. A morning off-roading, followed by a big turkey sandwich at the Buckhorn is one of his favorite ways to spend a day.  When the opportunity to become a part of the local community through the Buckhorn came up, he couldn’t resist, and is excited to be revitalizing the Buckhorn.


Ferial Sadeghian

Ferial has worked as an architect and designer based in Los Angeles for many years, and loves to stop at the Buckhorn with her two daughters, Kiana and Kayla, whenever possible. After a long career spent on projects for her clients, she is thrilled to be working on a property of her own. She can often be found in the Buckhorn’s restaurant chatting and making friends with customers, old and new. When it comes to the renovation of the Buckhorn, she is passionate about using local designers, builders, and businesses to ensure quality, meaningful work.
