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 Ynez

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.

Great home on a ranch with great hosts, we loved it!

  • 5 of 5

A very special place. We loved being able to stay in a comfortable modern guest home out on a large ranch next to horses, cows and such. The whole family was comfortable including our 4yr old daughter our 12yr old dog. So peaceful, private and overall it just felt great being there.

Also our hosts were fun to talk to we we ran into each other, good people and I'm glad we had a chance to meet them while staying on their beautiful ranch.

Easy/central location

  • 5 of 5

It was just what we were hoping for—easy/no hassle get away from Los Angeles with our dogs. Jeanne and Leo were sweethearts and our three terrier mixes absolutely loved the experience! We ate in town on the first night—went to several wine tastings the next day—then rode bikes into Solvang for breakfast the following morning before heading home. Perfect. Many thanks!

Lovely wine country retreat

  • 5 of 5

Perfect get away from LA. Peaceful location less than half a mile from town (Santa Ynez). Enjoyed exploring wine country, visiting wineries and admiring the beautiful countryside. Great to be able to travel with our dogs.

Wonderful star gazing.

Comfortable cottage in a quiet setting

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is comfortable and in a quiet setting, but close to downtown Santa Ynez and other areas like Solvang which we had on our list to see. The wineries we visited were also within short driving distances. The owners are charming people who were very helpful when we had a question. We were only two adults so the two-bedroom, one bath was more than enough space for us. We definitely recommend this property.

A perfect stay in Santa Ynez

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for three nights. When we arrived, everything was perfectly organized. The beds were very comfortable and we liked the kitchen and living room very much, including watching some of the 2017 World Series. However the best part is ... the location. The guest house is beautifully situated on on a 10 acre ranch which is 1/4 mile from the main road. It is extremely quiet here. However, you're only five minutes away from Downtown Santa Ynez and ten minutes away from Solvang. The owner was kind enough to explain how to bike ride into Solvang from the guest house. We loved every minute of the three days here! We'll be back for sure.
