Escape from the city to this historic mountain ranch located in Lockwood Valley just 90 minutes from Los Angeles. This unique newly-rehabbed horse farm features 175+ acres adjoining the Los Padres National Forest.
The Ranch is located within easy driving distance from Los Angeles but you feel like you are in another world. Situated at 5,200 feet in the beautiful Southern California mountains, no matter what time of year you book your visit through Airbnb or VBRO you will enjoy each of the seasons.
The main house features 3,500 square feet of newly rehabbed living space including 6 bedrooms, 3 baths, fully-remodeled chef’s gourmet kitchen, kitchen dining, formal dining, 5 fireplaces, huge living room with TV area and fireplace seating, front veranda porch, back patio overlooking lake, outdoor seating with patio dining and casual picnic tables. The property also includes lake, horse paddocks, horse barn, acres of walking and riding trails, picnic areas, creeks, riverbeds, outdoor games, vegetable garden, berry bushes, fruit orchards and more.
If you enjoy the feeling of remote open space, this is the property you will enjoy visiting! Within 15-minute driving distance to Frazier Park which includes neighborhood restaurants (burgers, pizza, Mexican, Chinese and vegetarian Indian cuisine), well-stocked local grocery store (including meat market) and local businesses. One-hour drive to Bakersfield or Santa Clarita.
At this mountain-top retreat you will experience all the seasons. Evenings are cool year-round so wear plenty of layers. Wintertime weather can be as low as 10 degrees so winter wear is a must during the snowy season.
This is a ranch so it is dusty. Let’s say this again…it is dusty 🙂 This valley is known for its wildlife including bobcats, mountain lions, bears, jack rabbits, cottontails, lizards, horny toads and rattlesnakes.
Cellphone service is only available in limited areas of the ranch. The main house is set up with full kitchen including dishware, glassware, pots and pans and utensils, and bath and bed linens. You will only need to bring your suitcase and your personal items. The kitchen pantry is stocked with basics only so you will need to bring all your food and ingredients or drive into town for your meals.
The closest airports are Burbank and Bakersfield. During snowy and icy weather, chains are required on Lockwood Valley Road. If you are unable to navigate the snowy conditions, the ranch truck can pick you up in Frazier Park. We are surrounded by 3 creeks, so during flash floods, the road is sometimes closed.
Our hope for you is that your stay at Lockwood’s Ranch is one of rest and quiet. If you can’t unplug, the main house has satellite internet, wifi and DirectTV satellite.
This setting beckons you to pull up a lounge chair or slip into the hammock with that novel that you had hoped to someday read. Hikers will enjoy the easy walking trails on the property or can venture into the national forest for more hiking enjoyment. Bring your camera! There are loads of photo opportunities year-round including beautiful sunrises, spectacular sunsets, wildflowers, wildlife, pines, creeks and dry riverbeds and farm animals.
$800 – $2,000 per night (seasonal pricing) for entire main house, plus cleaning fee and deposit. If you are interested in booking a stay at Lockwood’s Ranch go to Airbnb or VRBO for more information, please call Tiffany Windsor at 626-344-7879.
