If you just want to get some R & R, The Cottage at the Barn 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 to the Santa Ynez Valley. 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!!

Everything we expected!

If you are looking for a quaint and extremely quiet place to stay in the middle of touristy Santa Barbara wine country this is it. Everything was close yet felt out in the country. We will be back and will bring our dog next time!

Cozy clean cottage near wine tasting

  • 5 of 5
My husband, my dog and I had a wonderful time staying at this cottage during our wine tasting birthday trip. It is very cozy and exactly as shown on the pictures. The location is within minutes to both Solvang and most of the wineries, but it is also very quite with little light pollution, making star gazing at night fantastic. The owners are extremely friendly and their horses will eat carrots from your hand. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: We are very happy you chose our place to have your birthday wine tasting celebration.
The stars are amazing at night around here. You are right there is very little light pollution making them all very visible.
Your dog was very friendly and I'm glad that the horses were so gentle with you. They are happy horses.
We look forward to future visits.
Sincerely, Marcia & Brian, Owners

cottage at the barn

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I decided to take our dog on a road trip and found this lovely place! The owners, Marcia and Brian were so friendly, and made us and our dog feel at home! The cottage was clean, the decor was very pretty, and we felt as if we were at home. It was also nice to be around the horses which we love, and we enjoyed walking the property and meeting them. The bed was very comfortable, and the sheets and towels were fresh and very clean. The website clearly described the cottage to a T, and we were not disappointed. We also enjoyed visiting the dog friendly wineries and restaurants, which were plentiful.We will definitely return!

Restful Stay Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect place to stay and escape the hustle of the city. Very quiet, relaxing stay. Exactly what we needed. Marcia and Brian made sure we were comfortable amidst the 100 degree temperature outside. I would highly recommend this place and hope to be back again.

Owner's Response: Oh boy, you managed to be here with that brief heat spell and thankfully we were able to keep you comfortable. The air conditioner and fans were life savers. The good part is even if we do get those spells, it is a dry heat without humidity. And we always cool down at night no matter what!
We enjoyed your stay and will welcome a return visit!!
