IDYLLIC RANCH RETREAT ON 600 ACRES IN THE HEART OF CENTRAL COAST WINE

Santa Ynez Estate Rental Photos and Description

7 Bedroom, 6.5 Bathroom - Sleeps 10-17

Folded Hills Ranch, a 600 acre, ultra private retreat, is located 10 minutes from the quaint Danish town of Solvang and provides serenity and unparalleled relaxation in nature. It is the perfect getaway for families and friends.

Enjoy the many activities this property has to offer: a pristine lake and dock for sun bathing, lunching, fishing, kayaking and paddle boarding. There is a sparkling saltwater pool and hot tub, tennis court, an outdoor BBQ, a cozy outdoor fire pit, and hiking trails. It also includes an organic farm bursting with organic local produce--pick your own berries! Ambitious groups can set up softball, soccer, or golf games on the expansive 16-acre manicured sports field. Or, simply relax and admire the many domestic and wild animals grazing peacefully amid the rolling hills.

Nojoqui Falls Park is a leisurely walk from the property, and Alisal golf course is 5 minutes away, with Sandpiper and San Marcos golf courses just a bit further. Gaviota Beach is a 10-minute drive, and downtown Santa Barbara is 40 minutes away. The historic Santa Ynez Mission, and shopping and dining in the charming towns of Solvang, Los Olivos, Santa Ynez, Buellton and Ballard are within minutes as well. Fabulous restaurants and some of the finest wine tasting in California await you.

Explore the area on your own, or you may hire knowledgeable wine tour guides to find the locals’ best-kept secrets. Perhaps the ranch’s greatest offering is the luxury of doing nothing in peace and quiet. One feels a thousand miles away while rocking on the porch overlooking the Folded Hills.

THE BEST VACATION EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing vacation!! We had our family reunion at the folded hills ranch and everyone had a fabulous time, There was something for everyone to do. Hiking in the hills, biking through the wine country, shopping in solvang or just hanging out with the animals and enjoying the lake. This ranch is set in such a beautiful area and the accommodations are 5 star.
We will definitely be back next year!!!

A PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Idyllic and serene . . . the perfect place to rest and re-charge. The pictures are lovely, but they accurately reflect the sheer beauty and tranquility of this property. It seems worlds away from the hustle and bustle of Southern CA, but it is so close. Everything is impeccably maintained, but still extremely warm and inviting. There is so much to do that we didn't want to leave the property, but when we did we enjoyed local winetasting and fantastic dining, as well as a visit to Solvang. The owners provided maps and resources to help us find everything we needed, and made sure that we were well taken care of at all times during our stay. An absolutely perfect getaway!

PEACE AND QUIET IN THE COUNTRY

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed this ranch with our children and parents. We loved the location, the rolling hills, the walks and the proximity to Santa Barbara and the wine country. Our children loved being a part of a real ranch even for a few days. Fantastic!
