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.

Relaxing Ranch away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We loved the beauty and comfort of the guest house- lots of room and totally equipped with all you need. BBQing on the private patio and watching the sunset was a great way to celebrate our anniversary.

The house is situated on 10 acres bordered by horses and cows (cattle?) so if you can't relax here away from the city, then you need to go the few miles away to the wineries and have a glass or two of wine!

The charming town is a quick drive away and has great restaurants-we really enjoyed Grappolos which Jeanne and Leo recommended.

We enjoyed everything about the ranch, were so happy to be able to bring our 2 Basset hounds and will definitely be back!

Vackert, rent och välutrustat!

  • 5 of 5

Vi bodde två nätter i den här fantastiska lilla villan och var mycket imponerade över hur rent och fint allting var. Villan är väl utrustad för självhushåll och värdparet var mycket vänliga och välkomnande. Vi rekommenderar verkligen det här stället!

This guest house, available for vacation rental, has the three pluses: clean, quiet, and comfortable. What more can one ask for? Had a great time and Mr & Mrs Glover made it so.

Perfect Mother's Day weekend getaway

Nice and quiet in a beautiful setting. The owners are very nice and accomodating and respectful of guests' privacy. Highly recommended for a nice quiet weekend in wine country - wish we could have stayed longer.
