Vista Valencia Golf Course

The Gentle Barn is ranked #2 in activities on TripAdvisor. These words came from a user: "The Gentle Barn in Santa Clarita completely surpassed my expectations. As a vegan, I figured I would enjoy it... but once I got there it really took my breath away. They often call me Ice Princess back home, and perhaps it was the extreme heat of Santa Clarita, but it was so moving to hear the stories of the animals, from Big Ben to Patience."
