Overview

Santa Ynez Lodge Rental Photos and Description

The Lodge has 3 Beds, 2 Baths. The Cabin (100 paved feet away) has 1 Bed, 1 Bath

The Lodge and the Cabin are the guest quarters for the historic Rio Ynez Ranch, an 85-acre horse ranch in Santa Ynez. Previously, these two houses were only available to guests of the owner, including many storied personalities. Now you can share in the total privacy--- while only 5 minutes from downtown Santa Ynez, 10 to Los Olivos. Stroll 100 paces and sit at the edge of the Santa Ynez River and listen to the landscape of birdsong. Sit on the sprawling deck with a glass of local wine and ponder the uninterrupted panorama of mountains. Swing on a hammock in the orchard and read. You won’t see a sign of civilization during your stay. Furnished with a mixture of antiques and rare rustic furniture.

The kitchen in the Lodge is fully equipped for you to cook a fine meal, but the restaurants of Santa Ynez are only moments away, wineries too numerous to mention.

The Lodge has one King Bedroom, Two Queen Bedrooms and Two Full Baths. The Cabin has One King Bed and one Full Bathroom.

THE LODGE AND THE CABIN DO NOT RENT SEPARATELY AS THEY ARE IN SUCH CLOSE PROXIMITY. THE CABIN IS LESS THAN ONE HUNDRED FEET FROM THE LODGE, IT IS CONNECTED BY A LIGHTED PAVED PATH. Many guests of the ranch say the Cabin is their favorite spot on the ranch. It has been a honeymoon cottage. One couple was engaged in the cabin. It is very romantic and peaceful. And the bathroom in the cabin is the nicest on the ranch with a large claw-foot tub.

Initial inquiries should be made by email.

WE MUST LIMIT THE NUMBER OF GUESTS TO EIGHT TOTAL. ON HOLIDAY WEEKENDS PREFERENCE WILL BE GIVEN TO THREE DAY BOOKINGS

Extraordinary ranch weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 couples spend the weekend in this ranch home. While we had a fantastic time wine tasting in the area, the best part of our trip was this house. We got so lucky finding this place. It is the most beautiful rental I have ever stayed in. Rustic with all the charm we wanted. Everyone was so happy to be surrounded by the mountains, a river, and gorgeous open fields. At. At night we would stargaze and we have have never seen a more beautiful starry sky. Shooting stars, the Milky Way, and such beauty! The home owner Andrew was so easy and fun to work with. We had a last minute need to bring a dog along and he was totally fine with it. We would all happily return to this place. Oh and the beds were super comfy and uber was able to find it even though the place seems so remote and private. Do not hesitate to rent this place if you are lucky enough to make it to the Santa ynez valley!!

Life on a true western ranch

  • 4 of 5

This property offers a wonderful getaway! From the wrap around porch all you can see are the surrounding hills. We stayed at both the ranch and the cabin ( a separate bedroom/master bath, unfortunately there is no air conditioning in the cabin). The property was clean and the owner, as well as Dave, the Ranch Manager offered great service. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a special and unique property. In addition, the owner provided great suggestions on dining and other activities..

amaing nature get away

  • 5 of 5

Our group was incredibly impressed by the country themed house, only outshined by the property itself. If you're looking for a great escape to nature, with a great cabin, this is the place. The cabin is situated near the base of a cliff which makes it very private and secluded from the rest of the ranch. There are great fields of grass, magnificent trees, and a huge old fashioned tree swing near the creek bed. You feel like you've been transported to Montana. We plan to come back next year!

We want up with friends to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary and renew our vows...This place was absolutely ideal! Private, serene, rustic country charm with everything you need. Our cabin was beautifully appointed and cozy and we all spent hours on the deck enjoying the landscape. Thank you, Thank you for the perfect weekend and we will be back for sure!

Wow. Completely perfect property. Honestly, the pictures don't do this place justice. Truly a quiet escape from it all. Tons of land, charm, and nature.

AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of eight (four couples), and this was the best place to stay. It was in the perfect location: close enough to everything we wanted to do but felt special and secluded. Truly a beautiful spot.

We had a phenomenal time! Andrew was incredibly responsive if I had any questions. I HIGHLY recommend staying here if you have the chance!
