Flying Caballos Ranch | Venue Interview
RANCH VENUE | INTERVIEW ///
Flying Caballos Ranch is a hidden treasure nestled in the heart of San Luis Obispo. This ranch is more than just a ranch; it’s a vacation rental.
It’s an amazing private property for people looking for the full weekend getaway experience. It is the perfect place to host family members and extend festivities to more than just a day. Strategically located just across the road from the airport out of state guests wouldn’t have to even rent a car upon arrival!
What is your venue’s history?
The Flying Caballos Ranch is located in the rolling hills of Edna Valley, minutes from wine country and downtown San Luis Obispo, CA. Once owned by the Madonna family, our turn of the century farmhouse and 100 acre ranch combines old world artistry with modern amenities. We offer couples getting married at the ranch the opportunity to celebrate their wedding over an entire weekend with overnight accommodations for up to 24 guests in four separate homes.
Where did you get your name from?
The name Flying Caballos is a collaboration of my love of horses and airplanes.

The backyard features two outdoor restrooms, a large wood bbq, fire pit, built-in dance floor, hanging antique lanterns, and overhead bistro lighting.
