About Jeanne and Leo Glover

My husband and I have lived in the Santa Ynez Valley for over 20 years. In all of our travels, we have found few places as beautiful as our own little Valley. We feel very fortunate to live in such a special place and look forward to sharing our experience with our guests.

Jeanne and Leo Glover purchased this house in 1992

Why Jeanne and Leo Glover chose Santa Barbara County

The Santa Ynez Valley is the perfect retreat. A tranquil, gorgeous setting offering many activities and yet just a 30 minute drive to the beautiful city of Santa Barbara. Enjoy wine tasting at the numerous wineries in the area, shopping in the quaint Danish village of Solvang, or dining at wonderful local restaurants. Hiking biking or boating/fishing in Lake Cachuma.

For golfers, the River Course at the Alisal in Solvang is a great public course. Monthly golf packages available. Additional golf courses in the area include top-rated La Purisima and Rancho San Marcos.

What makes this house unique

This is a wonderful combination of privacy and convenience. We are situated on 10 acres, yet we are a very short walking distance from downtown Santa Ynez. A beautiful setting with a detached and very private guest house. Vaulted ceilings add spaciousness and charm and the large fireplace is both sophisticated and cozy. We've furnished it with everything you will need for your stay!

For golfers, there is your own private 'driving range'. Golf balls and mats provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the place so much! Extremely quiet and restful. We fell in love with the town of Santa Ynez -- had coffee, breakfast & dinners there. Never saw so many cowhands with their spurs and buckles having breakfast at one time. The walks at night under the stars were amazing. Our horseback riding at Vino Vaqueros was perfect riding through Estelle Vineyards and in the grass fields with wind blowing the grasses. Scooter and Halie (doggies) LOVED your place and could not wait for our walks & adventures. We will definitely be back -- by the way the wine tasting was fantastic. Couldn't think how you could improve it.

Country tranquility

  • 4 of 5

Visited Santa Ynez for 2016 Thanksgiving weekend. Guest house is located in the country where you have cows and horses in adjacent pastures. It was very quiet and guest house is very comfortable. Had a couple days of nice, warm weather and enjoyed sitting out in back patio. If you're into wine tasting, this is the area for you!! Lots of tasting rooms in nearby towns. Owners are friendly and accommodating.

Great visit again!

  • 5 of 5

Love this property for the location and close proximity to my favorite restaurant (SY Kitchen), Los Olivos market and Los Olivos in general! Jeanne and Leo are gracious hosts and the house is set up to support whatever your agenda is. We cooked breakfast and enjoyed the views from the patios, the neighboring horses and all of the birds. Thanks again, we will be back on our next trip!

Great destination, close to everything

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect and the hospitality was first rate. Jeanne was very responsive and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back. This was perfect for a couple or a small girls trip. 5-10 minutes from everything we wanted to do.

Everything we'd hoped for

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Jeanne and Leo's beautiful guest house for 5 weeks this winter and didn't want to leave. The property is absolutely beautiful; they take great care of everything - it's not only clean but very tasteful. It's located within a bike ride or walking distance to the charming town of Santa Ynez, yet still among the ranches so you're in the country too. The guest house was perfect for us -- it's decorated so nicely; we loved sitting by the fire at night and the master bedroom is as comfortable as you'd ever find. The guest room was great for our daughter who visited from LA over the weekends. I like to cook and the kitchen is outfitted with top-of-the-line cooking equipment and dishware. Most of all, Jeanne and Leo are so nice and very responsive to guests -- they completely respect your privacy yet are there to answer questions or help you with anything you may need at a moment's notice. They are a lot of fun too -- we enjoyed catching up with them on the lawn watching the sun go down and learning about everything there is to do in the area. In fact, we now call them friends!
