Looking for a truly remote quiet retreat in the Santa Barbara area?

My authentic adobe in the mountains above Refugio Beach is what you maybe yearning for. We call it The Mountain House.

Hand built over 38 years ago it radiates a peaceful serenity that is hard to come by in Southern California.

This beautiful three bedroom home has all the comforts and amenities you want for truly peaceful, memorable vacation.

Two bedrooms are equipped with very comfy King size beds, the other bedroom has a Queen bed. All are outfitted with new high count sheets, comforters and pillows.

There are two baths, one with a tub/ shower combo, the other a step down shower. Each bath has new soft cotton towels. Both are trimmed in Mexican tile.

The property is only thirty five minutes to Santa Barbara. You can explore this classic little city, loaded with options, from whale watching, shopping, movies and food. Fifteen minutes down the hill, At Refugio Beach, you can enjoy one of the nicest State Beaches in all of California.

But the real experience at the Mountain House is the tranquility, the utter lack of background noise, the brilliant starry night sky, the knowledge that you will feel alone on this beautiful planet.

The owner, lives in Santa Barbara, and is available to provide concierge services and whatever else you may need to have the best experience possible.

About The Owner

Lived in this home for 36 years. Built by myself over an eight year period. Raised two children here with my wife using solar power and rustic living. Now, I have commercial electricity and way more comforts. This is real rural experience.

I rented this place on VRBO in the early 2000' years. Most of my guests back then were blown away with the place. This is a magical place.

I now live in Santa Barbara and work in the Real Estate business.

The Owner purchased this farmhouse in 1972

Why The Owner chose Goleta

I inherited this property from my dad. Grew up in this canyon . This property is a place of power...it seems to promote healing in all aspects of life.

What makes this farmhouse unique

You will hear Great Horn owls as you fall off to sleep. The mother deer and her fawn will probably get in your way as you move around the property. The Mountain House is situated on an eighty acre parcel.

You may feel very far away from the crowd here.

The nearest neighbor is a half mile away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mr Abercrombie:

Thank you again for letting us stay in your wonderful house. Again, I brought an ambitious book to read and never touched it, preferring to thumb through your amazing reading collection!

We washed the sheets we used in the master bedroom and put them back on the bed. We also washed all the towels we used except one and two kitchen rags. We left those on the floor in the master bedroom near the hamper. Thank you !!

What a lovely getaway! The fun drive up to this quaint Adobe is the begining of your adventure. The views are stunning, the peace and quiet is refreshing and the home is very comfortable! Loved the view from the hot tub and the lounge chairs on the patio. We will be returning!

A view to die for

  • of 5
This is the house for you if you want a remote and relaxing trip in the beauty and serenity of nature. The house is comfortable and cozy. Everything was ready when we arrived. It was clean and well maintained. The view of the ocean is something that one can stare at for hours and get lost in your thoughts. It is a house that you want to hang out in and never leave. We played games , made great meals and enjoyed the view. We are already looking for a time to return.

Isolated Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This is about as isolated as I have seen in Southern CA. Super rustic, huge property and really quiet. Went with family and enjoyed our stay. Hiking, grilling and fireplace to enjoy Smores with kids. Once you are there you dont wanna leave. Do all your shopping before you arrive. Did I say it is isolated.

Wonderful, restful retreat

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for four wonderful nights at this restful, tranquil retreat.

From the moment we pulled up to the house, we knew we were in a special place. As others have mentioned, there is a well-equipped kitchen and the bed we slept in was very comfortable. Everything worked as promised. But let's face it, the reason we loved it here was the absolutely stunning setting. It is quiet, and there is a beautiful view of the ocean that we could see from our bedroom the moment we woke up in the morning. We hiked on the property, took hot tubs, and every evening we sat outside just to enjoy the view.

We drove a Jeep, so part of the fun of our stay was navigating and exploringback roads--totally fun. This place was also great because it was super dog-friendly. It felt like comfy home with no areas that felt "too nice" to enjoy and use.

Stewart was really helpful and responsive if we needed anything.

You are a ways to town, but we knew this and brought all our own food with us.

We will definitely come again. What a special place.
