Despite the name, which references a "bear" (oso) in Spanish, it’s all about horses at Rancho Oso. Join a guided trail ride in the nearby Santa Ynez Mountains, or set off on foot if you’re horse averse. Accommodations range from campsites to Wild West-style covered wagons and heated cabins with Western Village facadesand there are corrals for horses, too. The Stone lodge hosts breakfast Friday-Sunday, with options like pancakes and cinnamon rolls. Dinner, which often features spaghetti or barbecue, is only available on Fridays and Saturdays.
