The Ranch House
Featuring all the benefits that Lockwood's Ranch has to offer, the Ranch House is perfect for a couples weekend or small family getaway.
If you enjoy the feeling of remote open space, this is the property you will enjoy visiting!
The Ranch house features 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, barnwood floors, fully-remodeled kitchen, kitchen bar counter with seating for 2, bar height dining table for 2, comfy living room couch and lounge seating in front of wood burning fireplace. Walk-in closet in master bedroom, soaking tub in bathroom with shower over tub. Propane heater in living room/bedroom, electric heater in bathroom and second bedroom. The fenced back yard gives you sweeping views of the Yellowjacket hills, San Guillermo Mountain and Mt. Pinos. Walk beyond the fence into the beauty of Los Padres National Forest. There are easy hiking trails on the ranch property or more challenging hikes into the Forest. With views to the east, south and west, you'll enjoy morning sunrise and stunning sunsets.
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 challenge and 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.
Enjoy cooking your own meals in the granite and stainless steel kitchen or the ranch is 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.
The Ranch 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.
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.
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.
This is a ranch… so it is dusty. This valley is known for its wildlife including bobcats, mountain lions, bears, jack rabbits, cottontails, lizards, horny toads, gopher snakes (the good kind), garter snakes (the good kind) and rattlesnakes (the kind we shoot).
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 Ranch House has limited wifi only. There is no television in this house. Depending on your cell phone carrier, service can be limited.
The Ranch House accommodates a family of 4 or is lovely for a couples getaway weekend. Reservations can be made through Evolve Rentals or for more information, please call us at 626-616-3113. Minimum nights stay required.
