We are truly a "Hidden Gem at the end of the road"

Lee and Alice Tavare and Kevin Simas have bought Hideaway Ranch in January of 2005. Lee and Alice Tavare live on the property and look after your horse as if it were their own. Alice manages the barn and is very devoted to making sure your horse is safe and healthy. She has 3 horses of her own, and is an 'Aunt' to every horse on the ranch. If your horse needs anything special, Alice makes sure that they get it, whether it be grain, turnout, medical attention, blanketing or just a special rub, it will be given with love.

Lee owns a landscaping business outside of all the time he spends here at the ranch. When he isn't doing landscaping he can be found maintaining and making any necessary repairs needed here. He built a deck around the 'break room', which many of the boarders find so enjoyable to have lunch on, and to just sit and relax a bit more after a ride on the trails.

The Ranch has been here for many years. In the 1960's Hideaway Ranch was a place where you could rent horses and go out on the tranquil trails for a ride. We are now a full care horse boarding facility and no longer rent horses for trail rides. For those who board their horses here, there are miles of gorgeous trails on thousands of acres to ride with the direct access to Las Trampas Regional Wilderness park and East Bay Municipal Utilities District watershed. Along with the trail riding accessibility there are lighted indoor and outdoor arenas and a round pen to work or ride your horse.
