Kerry, Admin Asst or Marcia, Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why Kerry, Admin Asst or Marcia, Owner chose Santa Barbara County

We love the area, the people, the shops and restaurants etc. Our favorite restaurant is The Los Olivos Cafe; our favorite shop is Back At The Ranch in SY.

There are many, many places to visit and see. Serious bike riders LOVE this area. There are so many places to train. Horse people LOVE this area. There are several guided trail ride operations in the area with nice trails. If you bring your own horse there are trails nearby where you can ride in the mountains and by Cachuma Lake.

If you just want to get some R & R, The Country Ranch House is nice enough to just stay and enjoy with the amenities it provides. You will go home refreshed and ready to face the world once again!

We have many celebrations here. A Day in the Country, Danish Days, Santa Ynez Valley Days and more. We have parades for every holiday in various of the towns here. We have music festivals and music & movies in the park in downtown Solvang.

The visitors bureau will help us to collect all the dates of all that happens here.

And of course Wine Tasting has become a very BIG draw here. Wineries galore. We have begun a fun wine exchange program. Buy your favorite wine and leave a bottle with a message on the bottle, take a bottle another guest has left for your fun.

Take one, Leave one...a great exchange idea!!

Charming Country Ranch Home

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our three day holiday at this wonderful Ranch House. More than just a house, it is an adorable small home on a much larger ranch which includes a main house, horses and large expanses of country land. Each morning we would walk out of our bedroom door to the backyard fence where one of the property's horses would come over and greet us. He allowed us to pet him and seemed to feel comfortable with our presence.

The house itself is a very comfortable two bedroom two bath cottage which contains all needs a visitor could have. Nicely furnished, with a wide screen television, a bar, and large well-stuffed furniture, we enjoyed just relaxing. Although we did not prepare meals at home, we could have easily done so. The beautiful kitchen is equipped with all the basics a chef would require. The separate breakfast area is adjacent. Should you need to do so, an in-house washer/dryer is within the kitchen area.

Overall this property is highly recommended. Should we venture this way again, we would gladly stay here again.

Great Place to Stay in the Santa Ynez Valley

  • 5 of 5

The location was great and our stay was very comfortable. We've stayed at quite a few hotels in the area, but are new to VRBO. Having the extra space of the country ranch house, as opposed to a hotel room, really helped out. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Great response that our Ranch House worked out so well for your family and your dogs. You were great guests. We are happy to hear you would return again and hope to see you in the future!! Sincerely Marcia & Brian, Owners

Ranch living without all the hard work associated with it

  • 5 of 5

Still reminiscing our fantastic days at the ranch. The horses in the background. ... the birds singing while you sip your morning coffee. All this while minutes away from Solvang, Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, Lake Cachuma and dozens of wineries. Thoroughly enjoyed the much needed rest.

Owner's Response: What a very fun response!! All of what you said is so very true. This is really a fun place to stay. I especially loved giving two of you riding lessons. Had fun taking pictures of you on the horses right in front of the house you stayed in too. Fun. Hope you will come again. Marcia & Brian, Owners

Spacious But Cozy Ranch Guest House

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here when my mom was visiting from CO, so I was looking for a comfortable place for her. She was very happy with the house and thought it was just great. It had a bunch of small perks that make it more worth while than a hotel. Shared space, beautiful bar, wine-share program, comfy living room with updated wifi/cable/TV capabilities, and backyard for the pup to run around.

It is truly a home away from home...the cleaning fee does not cover taking out the trash at the end of your stay and you have to clean and put away all dishes used.

The owners are wonderful, we thought my wife left her wallet and Marcia looked numerous times to make sure. As it turns out we didn't leave the wallet, but it was very much appreciated.

Would definitely stay there again!

Owner's Response: We are very happy that you appreciated all of the great amenities of our Ranch House. We work hard to have it a very nice and inviting place to stay. What great news that you found the missing wallet. We were happy to do all we could to help you with that need including some dumpster diving to try to locate it for you. But thankfully you eventually found it in your own luggage. Yes taking out the trash and cleaning up your own dishes is a pretty common part of vacation rental check out instructions. Our fee is quite small compared to many I have seen. Cleaning a house of this size with two full bathrooms and a very large kitchen from head to toe each and every time is a very detailed and timely thing to do in order to hand it over in the spotless and perfect condition you got to enjoy upon entering when you arrived. It is important to us that each and every guest walks into a spotlessly clean and welcoming home. Marcia & Brian, Owners

Perfect Place for the Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The Country Ranch House was a cute and cozy place to relax. We stay with one other couple and found the location perfect for our wine tasting adventure. It's is close to many wineries off Zaca Station Road,Los Olivos, and Santa Ynez. The owner were very nice. I hope to visit again soon!
