Kerry, Admin Asst or Marcia, Owner purchased this House in 2011
Why Kerry, Admin Asst or Marcia, Owner chose Santa Ynez
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!!

Wonderful, charming home. Beautiful grounds with horses all around. Close to towns & wineries.Nice !
Beautifully furnished with homey appeal. Comfortable. Property is charming. A great place to stroll or sketch or just commune with nature, yet all this is minutes from charming towns and rolling hills. We can’t wait to come back. Everyone in the family had a great stay.
We really enjoyed sharing ideas and thoughts with you all. Glad you will come back for a few nights to just chill and enjoy!!
See you again soon,
Marcia & Brian
Super cozy and great for the family!
Happy to find this gem last minute for a get away with family. Marcia and Brian were great and really took the time to make sure our stay met all of our needs. The property is great and my 5 year old especially enjoyed Tango and the rest of the horses. Can't wait until we have the chance to stay again. The fenced yard was also perfect for our two puppies.
Yes Tango is very happy to have guests give him lots of over the fence attention. Glad your 5 yr old enjoyed him too! Come back again!

This is our second stay in this lovely place. We had a similarly great time.
We chose this place again...so that says a lot. Great home in a great location. Very well appointed and the owners are very responsive.
We loved having you come for another stay! It does say a lot and we are grateful that it means you had a great time both times!! We try harder and we really enjoyed your stays.
Come back again and again!!

Spacious, beautifully kept, private-great weekend getaway
Property was perfect. This was my first experience with VRBO, Marcia the property manager, and the owners answered my questions promptly and were very helpful and patient throughout the process. The Country Ranch House was delightful. Tastefully decorated very very comfortable with two couples.
Thrilled that your first experience was a good one!! That always makes a vacation getaway fun and worthwhile.
We hope to see you again soon.

A gem in the country
Host, Brian met us shortly after arrival, immediately made us feel at home. Property was is centrally located, close to Los Olives, Santa Ynez and of course the Chumash Casino.
We had prior experiences at various motels in Solvang but this was first class. Property is very quiet, very comfortable for 2 couples and I’m sure we will book again. Thank you, Brian and Marcia.
It was such a pleasure having you all on the ranch! We look forward to seeing you again. Hopefully Soon!

A lovely place to stay
This was a great place for 2 couples to stay. The cottage was very comfy and has everything you need for your stay. The kitchen was stocked with spices etc better than any I've stayed in.
The owners were very nice to work with and very responsive if we had any needs or questions.
Thank you for a great place to stay!
So happy you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again in the future!
