In the early 1970s, Willard and Dorothy Beanland ventured north to Solvang from Los Angeles. They settled and built their retirement ranch called Goldie Acres. The reason for the name was that they bred, raised and trained Tennessee Walker Palomino horses. Yes, only Palominos here! The Beanlands’ passion for their horses had them riding them in the Pasadena Rose Parade for 34 years in a row! In addition to the Rose Parade, they rode in countless other parades displaying the incredible “silver saddles” they designed specifically for their Palominos. They were a fixture in parade riding community. Willard passed at the age of 82, leaving Dorothy the task of caring for the horses until she could no longer ride. Dorothy passed away in the late 1990s and the one remaining Palomino on the ranch, Tequila, was given to a gal that rode with the Ladies Mounted Sheriffs, and they continue to ride in local parades today.
As the Beanlands aged, the ranch became tired and worn from the 30 years of their Palomino passion and ranch dream. The property was sold to only the second owner in 35 years – a real cowboy – who has attempted to keep the traditional feel of the ranch but has modernizing the home, its surrounding barns, arenas, pastures, and landscaping. The traditional California Board and Batten home has been remodeled, adding all modern amenities including pool, pool house, outdoor pizza oven, landscape and outdoor lighting and custom landscaping. With all of these changes, the name change to “Circle L Ranch” was appropriate. Come and join us for a stay and enjoy the feel of the Old West. You may even spot a Palomino horse in one of the pastures.

Restored and updated California Board and Batten ranch home with luxurious Western Theme Décor, natural stone and hard wood floors throughout.
I've stayed at Circle L twice, both times with large groups of family in town for weddings, and it's been fantastic both times. The over the top Western style is a bit kitsch, but it works. The master bedroom is over the top, with en suite luxury bath, a small den, and a bed that can only be described as cloud like. Don't mind the canoe (you'll see). The second master is also fantastic, not to sell short the other bedrooms. Water pressure is great, towels are fantastic, and the comp soaps are even fancy. Overall, a great place to spend the night.
Amenities include a fabulous pool, hot tub, massive garden, ample parking, quiet neighbors (and be respectful in return), a pizza oven, WiFi, laundry, and a completely stocked kitchen. If you're planning to cook at this house, you don't need anything but ingredients. Amazing, pro kitchen that I was able to effortlessly cook 2 dinners for a crowd out of.
This fantastic home has a museum quality decor depicting the Old West and gorgeous tranquil grounds. A don't miss and, for us, a do again!
This house is an ultimate jam! Super spacious, comfortable, high end all around. Perfect for family getaways especially if you have kids which can run around and play in the pool. The house is not cheap but in our opinion was great value. Mark and Leanne were responsive to our needs and very easy to deal with. We came across this house searching for a rental in Santa Barbara which we could not find – it worked out great because the weather in Solvang was so much better than SB. The only negative feedback was that the water in the hot tub wasn’t hot. Looking forward to going back.
