About Lynn's Ranch

My name is Kelly Lynn Barnes.  My husband, James Oswald, and I have been married since October 14th, 1995. We were married in Laguna Beach, California where we lived together. Our wedding ceremony was on a beautiful cliff overlooking the ocean, surrounded by 30 of our closest family and friends. Fun fact, we found our officiant out of the yellow pages and we had no floral besides the natural landscape! 

 We are loving this new season of life as empty nesters; living out our dreams, pursuing new interests, and exploring new places in our new RV together when we aren’t booked here at Lynn’s Ranch! Sometimes we even take our RV just 10-15 miles up the road to our local National Forest and we camp there for weeks hiking, exploring, and just spending time together.

The story of Lynn’s Ranch began several years ago when my husband and I were training for half and full Ironman races. We would cycle hundreds of miles in the beautiful countryside of Montgomery, Richards, and Anderson, TX.  While training I would dream of living here someday.

Lynn’s Ranch is more than just fulfilling big dreams from long training rides in the countryside. It’s also about honoring and passing on a legacy. My mother Linda Barnes was a strong, athletic, independent woman who not only raised her 3 girls as a single mom, she also set an amazing example of starting and running her own successful business to support her family. It was important to me to keep honoring my mom as I started building our gambrel barn…hence the name, “Lynn’s Ranch”!

We look forward to hosting your next small intimate gathering.
