Welcome to Zaca Lake.

Zaca lake is a private, 300-acre retreat located at 2,300ft in the wine-country mountains north of Santa Barbara. We will have exclusive use of the entire property for the weekend, including a 20-acre natural spring fed lake, great hiking, and lakeside lounge and kitchen. The nearest town with services is Buellton, roughly a 30-minute drive from Zaca Lake.

The road up to Zaca lake is a narrow, winding, single-lane paved road with 2 stream crossings. Each crossing is roughly 4-inches deep. Nothing to worry about.

Pets are not allowed.
