Once owned by the Madonna family, this turn of the century farmhouse and 100 acre ranch combines old world artistry with modern amenities. The Flying Caballos Ranch is located in the rolling hills of Edna Valley, minutes from wine country and downtown San Luis Obispo.

The Flying Caballos Ranch offers several ceremony and reception sites that can accommodate up to 200 guests and features four unique and historic homes that can sleep up to 24 overnight guests ~ 5-bedroom Farmhouse (sleeps 10-12), 2-bedroom Guesthouse (sleeps 4-6), Cozy Cottage Studio (sleeps 2-4), and Water Tower (sleeps 2).

The expansive grounds surrounding the farmhouse offer breathtaking views of Islay Hill and Edna Valley.

The Flying Caballos Ranch is the perfect place for a getaway with friends & family and also serves as an incredible spot to host your private celebration such as a family reunion, graduation party, corporate retreat, or wedding.

Flying Caballos Ranch is a wonderful setting for any wedding! Sarah and Tori were so genuine and sweet that I knew my special day was in good hands. The ceremony space was green and lush and everything started on time. The bistro lights created the perfect ambience during our dinner and reception and all of the décor was set up exactly how we wanted it! What really stood out to me was the unique experience of staying at the property for the whole weekend. I loved that my entire bridal party was able to wake up together in the farmhouse and immediately begin the exciting day. It was also wonderful knowing that mine and my fiancé’s families were close by in the guesthouse and studio. Our wedding was flawless and I can’t wait to return to Flying Caballos for the weddings of our friends!

Such a beautiful and unique property. Perfect for a full weekend getaway. Glad there were enough sleeping rooms for our bridal party. Sarah was wonderful to work with.

Getting married at Flying Caballos was an absolute dream! It was a perfect, romantic, rustic setting for our day, and we got so many compliments from friends and family on the venue. The farmhouse is so bright and vintage, it makes the perfect backdrop for the day and we used it as a home base from my bridesmaids and I to stay in and get ready. The other houses are fantastic as well, especially the converted water tower a.k.a. honeymoon suite! Where else can you find something as charming and unique as that?! The stunning hills made a gorgeous backdrop for our ceremony, and we had everything we needed for a full weekend of activities. The hot tub is a fun bonus too! It's also a fantastic price for all the time and included amenities you get--worth every penny. At most other venues/ranches, you'd be paying the same price or more for just 10 hours and without any accommodations included. If you want a beautiful wedding venue full of character, but that can also be transformed into anything as unique and personal as you can imagine, go with Flying Caballos.

This venue was WELL worth the cost. We didn't need to have nearly as many flowers, decorations, etc. because the space is so incredibly stunning. My guests couldn't stop talking about it for months. We hired Sarah, the location manager, as our coordinator, which was the best decision. Having someone who knew all of the ins and outs of the venue and had great relationships with the vendors put my mind at ease for any problems that might arise. Everything went perfectly smooth and I had the best time at my wedding. My friends camped on the grounds and loved the outdoor showers, campfire, and the hot tub in the trees. And I loved the bridal tower, felt like Rapunzel. If there ever was a reason to splurge for your wedding, this venue is it.

Instead of just getting married at Flying Caballos, make a weekend out of it! We had our immediate families and wedding party stay for the weekend (had a couple days to hang before the ceremony). It was the best, most peaceful weekend that I've had in a long time. Beautiful location, wonderful service from the Flying Caballos team...couldn't ask for more. We love the character of Flying Caballos--it's such a unique venue that we will cherish for years to come. We're already planning our 5-year anniversary trip with our wedding party!

Flying Caballos Ranch was the MOST perfect location for an extended wedding weekend with our closest family and friends! From the moment we stepped on the property for the first time we knew it was the perfect fit for us--the charm and character stood out from all other venues we looked at. The staff, Sarah and Tori, were amazing throughout the planning process and the execution of the event. They really have it down and were super accommodating and flexible with our requests to help make it, in my mom's words, "the most glorious day!" The price seemed a little intimidating to us at first, but for a full weekend enjoying the property, the big wedding day event, staff, amenities, etc. onsite it is a steal and by far the best option we looked at in the San Luis area. We are ready to go back for an Anniversary celebration!

This place is a dream come true.. so charming and filled with adorable details that make you feel as if you jumped in a time machine to the 1950's. We came down from San Francisco for a wedding weekend, and I would do it all over again if I could! The highlights: + Weather was perfect; a little windy in the afternoon but nothing outrageous. We didn't need any heaters at night, but apparently there is usually fog that rolls in this time of year + The "yard" around the main house was nicely landscaped for our reception + Fire pit on the property is so lovely at night! + We arrived Thursday, checked out Sunday, and enjoyed a lovely evening with family Thursday night. This was great for seeing what the lighting was like a nighttime + Houses were very clean and ready for our arrival + EVERYONE that came to our wedding raved about the venue + They offered to switch the colored light bulbs out for us to all white-lights. SO helpful! + The owner sent a handyman over to fix issues we had within the same day and even came by himself to make sure it was all taken care of + We had the water tower as our wedding night "suite" and it was like a dream... I had happy tears in my eyes the whole morning. Sarah was wonderful to work with and made the last few months of planning so easy... even after just having a baby!! Thank you Sarah!! If you want the perfect wedding day, with an amazing property to enjoy in the days prior to your wedding... this is it. We couldn't have been happier.

This past summer I was lucky enough to be a bridesmaid in a wedding held at this very special ranch. The spaciousness of the property, combined with the three separate accommodations made it not only an incredible space to host the wedding , but also the perfect setting for an unforgettable weekend for family & close friends to celebrate, enjoy each others company and stay comfortably all together in a beautiful location. Between the outdoor grill, the hot tub & plenty of space for lawn games, our group spent most of our time outdoors enjoying the perfect SLO weather. The scenic setting of this ranch makes practically impossible to not to relax. The guesthouse and cottage, where family of the bride and groom stayed, were very nicely decorated & had everything you need for a comfortable weekend stay. I personally stayed in the main farmhouse with the bride and the rest of the bridal party. The warm & inviting layout of the home was ideal for preparing and having meals together, finishing up last minute wedding crafts & relaxing with the bride-to-be. The day of the wedding we had plenty of space to get all of us ready with hair stylists, makeup artists & photographers in tow. The bright colors and beautiful furniture of the rooms made for great pre-wedding photos. The wedding itself was magical & the property is laid out in such a way that each portion of the event had its own special location. From cocktail-hour near the farmhouse entrance, the ceremony in a scenic field overlooking the valley, a wonderful dinner in the backyard lit with strings of bulb lights & of course the dance floor…that was full as soon as the music started! One of my favorite things was the fire pit, which made for a cozy setting to catch up with friends and take in the beauty of the whole night. Overall, I couldn’t have had a better time at Flying Caballos Ranch and can’t wait to return. Members of the bridal party and I are already talking about renting the property for a long weekend.

I had the opportunity to stay at the Flying Caballos Ranch for a wedding Labor Day weekend 2015. The whole wedding party was so delighted that we all got to stay together for four days sharing meals in the bitchin kitchen and working together preparing for the Big Day. Family stayed in the Farmhouse as well as the Guesthouse and Cottage. We enjoyed how the 1950's retro-farmhouse theme spilled over into the rehearsal dinner BBQ we had outside under the amazing trees that were all lit up with globes from "back in the day". If you had brought your dancing shoes the built-in dance floor was ready for you. I can't say enough about Sarah, the Property Manager/Event Co-ordinator. She was so helpful to all of us. She had the uncanny knack of anticipating our needs and met them all. I've never seen anyone run around and get so much done. She's not only efficient and professional she has a great sense of humor and we love her sunny disposition. Weddings can be stressful for sure, but she had us laughing and saw to it that the whole day went smoothly. The huge trees, old out-buildings and rolling hills made for lovely backgrounds for the photographer. Everywhere you look you would see amazing photo opportunities. I think the fire pit was one of my favorite areas of the property for gathering, toasting, making s'mores and keeping the party going. I was surprised how many family members thought to bring a swimsuit.........the hot tub got lots of use after a long day of setting up for the wedding. I will say this; when the sun starts to go down the ambient light around the farmhouse was breathtaking. We have spectacular photographs of one of the most special days ever. When family gets together we reminisce and have already started to put together plans for a reunion back at the Ranch.

We fell in love with this place the moment we got there! We loved the fact that we could have the property for multiple days and could house so many while we were there. The property is beautiful.

My wife and I were married at the Flying Caballos Ranch on May 16, 2015. It's a day (and entire weekend) we will never forget. The pictures of this place don't do it justice. We immediately fell in love with FCR because it was rustic and had tons of charm. After looking at venues all over the Central Coast, this was actually the very last one we looked at. We almost didn't visit because we had seen so many places and were ready to just sign-off and pick a random one, be done with it. But there was something different about FCR...it's just somewhere you can see a wedding from start to finish. The flow of the place is amazing. People moved from ceremony, to cocktails, to dinner, and to dancing so easily and fluidly. Nobody was confused or had to be told what to do. It's all easy going here. All of our guests just seemed to be in a great mood. Love was in the air...and the charm of this place reinforced that. We had the entire property for 3 days. Our whole wedding party stayed, scattered across the three houses. To have your close family and friends here for the entire weekend made it that much better. Everybody was happy that they didn't have to pay for a hotel room. It brings you and your wedding party close together and means a lot to them. There are tons of things to do around the property and you are only 5-10 minutes from downtown SLO. We setup a slack-line in the yard. Everybody loved it. The guys played pool and cornhole, of course with beers in their hands. The girls gossiped, got pretty in the old farm house, and drank underneath the trees. Did I mention there is an awesome hot tub as well? Happy happy happy.
