Our Vineyard Retreat is an ideal romantic getaway. Our relaxing setting welcomes you the moment you arrive and lets you truly unwind and have a unique wine country experience. The retreat is off a private wing of our home on one of the smallest producing wineries in Santa Barbara County. The open vistas of our CCOF certified organic vineyard and surrounding farmland spread out before you and provide a relaxing view. We take great pride in all the details that make our guests crave to return again and again.
We also have a two-bedroom two-bath retreat located on our property overlooking our vineyard which can accommodate 2-4 guests (more info below)
The Vineyard Retreat: The Vineyard Retreat consists of one bedroom, a family room & kitchen nook, a fully stocked kitchen, & a bathroom. The bedroom has a super comfortable king-sized bed with luxurious bedding and custom over-sized pillows. The bathroom has a tub/shower combo & plush towels. The kitchen nook, family room, & kitchen are encompassed in the same space with beautiful views of the vineyard and mediterranean landscaping. There is a flatscreen TV and two iPod stations. Free wireless internet access is available. The kitchen is fully stocked to prepare a wine country meal but you don't want to miss out on the many fine dining establishments in the Santa Ynez Valley. Including our own highly reviewed and much loved Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Cafe! A private patio with table and teak steamers entices guests to soak in the tranquility of wine country life. In addition to our vineyard there are 4 acres of organically farmed land that grace the view.
A description of our Bernat Retreats is not complete without mentioning Gypsy, Juliet, and Fiona. Our dogs are the first to greet our guests, and our cat, Fiona, makes sure to stop by and see if there are any cat lovers visiting (if there aren't, she gets the hint).
Los Olivos and Surrounding Area: The 20+ tasting rooms, galleries, and restaurants, of our quaint little town, are a 10 minute walk (20 minute stroll) or a short bike ride away. We also offer complimentary cruisers.
The Santa Ynez Valley comprises the danish town of Solvang, the western themed town of Santa Ynez, Ballard, Buellton, and Los Olivos. Aside from tasting the many vintages of the Santa Barbara County wines the valley offers; biking, horseback riding (in fact, if you have a horse and want to bring them, we have room for two), hiking, fishing, live theatre, movie theatre, shopping, festivals, surfing and much more. Santa Barbara is a 40 minute drive and the beach is only 30 minutes.
If you only stay two nights, you'll wish you have stayed more!
Also on our property is our newly remodeled two bedroom-two bath, Winery Retreat, with it's own private bocce ball court (VRBO #474727. *Special Pricing for Single Couple*
