our story



about the buckhorn


Cuyama Buckhorn was founded in 1952 as a roadside stop for weary travelers to enjoy a meal in good company and rest up before continuing on their journey. More than 60 years later, Cuyama Buckhorn has become a historic establishment, nestled in The Hidden Valley of Enchantment, filled with wonderful memories for locals and travelers alike.

Since March of 2018, Cuyama Buckhorn has been under new ownership and management and the property is undergoing a full renovation that will breathe new life into the Buckhorn and the entire Cuyama Valley. Drawing on the classic mid-century design, wonderful local community, and an extensive history, 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, saddle up for a drink in the bar, or get a good night’s sleep in one of our cozy rooms, Cuyama Buckhorn is an inviting gathering place for people from all walks of life to come together for a uniquely charming and memorable 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.
