STRAIGHT FROM THE GUEST BOOK:

Dear Marcia & Brian,

Best Wishes,

Marcia is the horse specialist and coaches and trains people and their horses. Marcia works with all ages, but especially loves to work with children. Marcia also specializes in rescuing and rehabbing horses and putting them back into full service with their people.

We participate and volunteer in The Ranch Church here in the Valley, a great place to visit if you're here over a Sunday. A casual upbeat Calvary Chapel Church with great worship music.

This is a family business with our two adult sons Dan and Jeremy helping and participating in bldg, constr and upkeep of our 10 acre property.

We have 2 grandchildren Noah 8 and Becca 19yrs that help too. Becca is our photographer! We have a couple of friendly dogs; MacKenzie and Cowboy.

We look forward to meeting you when you check in. You will love our area and our home away from home all prepared for YOU!

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

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!!

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

Fantastic property. Perfect in every way...

  • 5 of 5
We really could not have enjoyed ourselves any more than we did. The farm is beaufitful, the owners are very welcoming and the house is perfectly set-up for a get-away. Our only regret is that we were only there for the weekend. We were two couples and the house was ideally set-up for our needs. Two big bedrooms with private bathrooms, a large living room with a wood-burning fireplace, and big sized kitchen made the weekend very comfortable. We really enjoyed feeding carrots to the many horses on the grounds, and particularly enjoyed BBQing on the Saturday night (after a long day drinking wine in Los Olivos). We will definitely return!

PS. The wine sharing 'program' is a great touch. We arrived late on a Friday night and it was really nice to know that there would be some nice bottles to crack into on arrival. Hope the ones we left make someone equally as happy!

Another great weekend!

  • 5 of 5
This is the second year we have stayed at the Courntry Ranch House and had a great experience each time. The house is very nice, clean and comfortable and located on a beautiful property, walking distance to Santa Inez and a very short drive to Solvang and Los Olivos. Would highly recommend this property.

It is so much fun to be hosts to such great people!!

The Santa Ynez Valley is such a fun place to come and visit. Close to so much in the valley and in addition not that far from the beach.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I and our dog spent three very pleasant days at The Ranch House in Santa Ynez. The house was well laid out and very clean and exceeded our expectations. Marcia, the owner could not have been nicer or more attentive. Lots of things to do in the area. Visiting Los Olivos and Solvang are a must see. More tasting rooms in LO per capita than anywhere in the world. Forgot my favorite hat but Marcia had it immediately mailed to me. Hope to get back again for another visit.

Owner's Response: You were awesome guests!! What is a guy to do without his favorite hat! We had to get it off to you.
We really look forward to you returning for a future visit.
Our little valley here is so worth it for a great vacation.
Til the next time,
