Kerry, Admin Asst or Marcia, Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why Kerry, Admin Asst or Marcia, Owner chose Santa Ynez

We love the area, the people, the shops and restaurants etc. Our favorite restaurant is The Los Olivos Cafe; our favorite shop is Back At The Ranch in SY.

There are many, many places to visit and see. Serious bike riders LOVE this area. There are so many places to train. Horse people LOVE this area. There are several guided trail ride operations in the area with nice trails. If you bring your own horse there are trails nearby where you can ride in the mountains and by Cachuma Lake.

If you just want to get some R & R, The Country Ranch House is nice enough to just stay and enjoy with the amenities it provides. You will go home refreshed and ready to face the world once again!

We have many celebrations here. A Day in the Country, Danish Days, Santa Ynez Valley Days and more. We have parades for every holiday in various of the towns here. We have music festivals and music & movies in the park in downtown Solvang.

The visitors bureau will help us to collect all the dates of all that happens here.

And of course Wine Tasting has become a very BIG draw here. Wineries galore. We have begun a fun wine exchange program. Buy your favorite wine and leave a bottle with a message on the bottle, take a bottle another guest has left for your fun.

Take one, Leave one...a great exchange idea!!

Comfortable country retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! It was very centrally located for wine tasting in Santa Ynez, Los Olivos or Solvang. It was beautifully appointed, and incredibly comfortable. We've stayed at a lot of VRBO properties - this was by far and away the most stocked kitchen we've ever had. We like to cook when we travel, so it was a huge plus. Comfortable beds, upscale decor, big tv and comfy couches. Lots of room to spread out. Cute backyard gives you a nice outdoor area. We loved watching the horses every morning. The owners were so nice to let my daughter walk the property. She loved their awesome "tiger" cat. The house is very private away from the main house, so you can have total privacy if you want. We loved the area and this house. Can't wait to get back. We returned with a trunk full of wine!

Owner's Response: We loved seeing your daughter's eyes wide with excitement walking around and meeting the horses. So awesome that you liked having lots of supplies in the kitchen. We've traveled too and it's great to have access to items that you need but can't bring with you!! We look forward to you coming again. We love that our place is rural yet close, easy access yet private, on our property with us but independent. Great you loved it too!! See you next time!! Marcia & Brian

Rustic ambiance

My husband and I always rent a house when we travel. This home was was very well appointed. The kitchen had everything we needed. This property is close to everything. Loved waking up in the morning, walking outside and being greeted by the horses. Will definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed waking each morning to the horses. This has been a great draw for many people. Not everyone gets greeted by friendly horses each day!

Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic wine-tasting weekend for two couples, a baby, and two dogs. Our hosts were attentive and accessible and the ranch house was pristine. And a fantastic location: we walked into Santa Ynez for dinner. Less than 10 minutes to Los Olivos or Solvang/Buellton. We can't wait to come back.

Wonderful place to retreat and relax

  • 5 of 5

The Country Ranch House was immaculate and we had a wonderful time walking out on the back porch and being greeted by the horses in the paddock directly attached to the cottage. The staff was very friendly and I even got a horseback riding lesson! Also wonderful to be in nature and see the beautiful night lit up by the stars! Great place - 5+ stars!

Top of My List

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoying staying at this horse ranch. The 2 bedroom house was well stocked with everything we could need. The owners really do more than most. It was clean, comfy and nicely furnished. It does not smell due to the horses. They keep their paddocks very clean. Town is just right down the road. We loved being on this gated ranch and will be coming back next year if not sooner. We stay in about 5 houses per year and have had great luck with VRBO. This one is at the top of our list.

Owner's Response: Hello again, So good to hear that you loved the ranch as much as we do. I loved hearing all about your daughter's horse and her fun at home. I know the horses could tell a horsey girl when they met!! We look forward to you coming again. We had a health emergency with a family member the day we met…..which happily is all resolved and good now. We hope to hear more of your horse adventures the next time you can get away!! Sincerely, Marcia & Brian
