Town & Country - A Designer's Dream in Montecito

WINTER SPECIAL - 20% OFF available nights from now through December 31, 2016 (excludes Holiday dates)

Set against the spectacular backdrop of the Santa Ynez mountains, Cold Springs Retreat is a newly remodeled Cape Cod style home in a quiet neighborhood in Montecito. With attention to every detail and tasteful new furnishings throughout, this pristine home is the perfect setting for a business retreat, family reunion or a 'get away from it all' vacation.

Highlighting this wonderful home are the numerous connecting decks where sightings of red tail hawks and eagles add drama to the already spectacular unobstructed mountain views.

The Living Room is bright and comfortable with an abundance of windows. A glass-topped game table offers additional dining options. Throw open French doors to access the decks, outdoor dining , grassy lawn, and spa.

The spacious kitchen, a central hub for activity and conversation, is equipped with Viking and Sub-Zero appliances and provides plenty of counter space and seating for helping hands. Browse for new recipes on the web by keeping your laptop on the convenient built-in desk. The adjacent Formal Dining Room has an oval expanding table that seats 8.

Step down into the Family Room with fireplace and flat screen TV. French doors open to the main level deck where outdoor dining for 8 and a gas grill are available.

The very private Master Suite is located on a mezzanine level just off the Family Room. The luxurious king size bed sits under soaring ceilings with roofline skylights framing mountain views. Other features of this Master Suite include a corner sitting area, walk-through closet and 2 additional closets providing great storage options for long term guests.

The Master Bathroom has a large walk-in glass shower and dual sinks set in creamy Calcutta marble counters. To add to the spa-like feel of this bathroom, enjoy the Swiss sauna and luxurious robes provided in the outer dressing area.

From the entry, curving stairs lead to the 2nd floor bedrooms. A second Master Suite with full bath and king size bed offers the same quality experience as the Master Suite downstairs. Couples will enjoy reading the morning paper together in the sitting area, and a small adjacent alcove is perfect to keep a sleeping baby nearby. (a Porta-crib is available on site)

Three other bedrooms on this level share the 3rd hall bathroom. The largest of the rooms looks out over the backyard to the sweeping mountain vistas and sleeps 4 guests in the 2 very comfortable queen size beds. French doors lead to a deck that also connects to the main lower level deck and backyard. The 4th bedroom has a queen size bed and faces the front of the house. The charming 5th bedroom with twin beds is decorated for the younger set in candy cane stripes with nautical accents.

Ascend the staircase to the third floor attic-style Game Room. The pool table, foosball table, dart board and other games guarantee fun for all ages! A large television and leather sectional complete this comfortable space where guests can enjoy family movie night or the Big Game.

Cold Springs Retreat is close to the fine dining, shopping, antique stores and galleries of both the Upper and Lower Villages of Montecito. Lotusland, Westmont College and some of the best hiking and biking trails are also nearby. The serene setting and abundance of thoughtful amenities combine to assure a memorable vacation experience for anyone staying in this beautiful country home.

Guestbook comments from the manager

(Transcribed from guest comments)



We had an amazing girls weekend in Santa Barbara. The house is absolutely gorgeous and has all of the basic necessities (kitchen items and supplies, towels, etc.) We loved the hot tub and all of the deck space was perfect to have morning coffee. The photos don't do it justice; if you are considering booking here, do it NOW before it is gone!

Montecito house stay!

  • 5 of 5

This property was EXECELLENT! The house was very clean when we arrived & has alot of modern touches- high end appliances, great washer & dryer & TV's. All of the bedrooms had comfy bed linens & the bathrooms were spotless. Nice touches were flowers around. There was plenty of room for all the family & we had one child who loved the place as well. Great kitchen, nice yard & all was perfect! The house is very quiet & located on a beautiful street.

We (all 11 of us) were in town for a wedding, and this was a perfect spot for all of us under one roof. Home is lovely, setting is beautiful, and location worked very well for us. It all made for a very nice 3 day, multi-generational time together.

Beautiful Home and Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

This was a roomy and beautiful home that we rented to attend a destination wedding for my nephew. There was plenty of room and everything you could possibly need for a stay. Our main complaint is that there was no air conditioning! Trying to get ready for a 5:00 wedding when it's over 80 degrees outside was miserable!

Not a great house! Do not rent it!

  • 1 of 5

This house is not half as good as it looks in the pics and description (and for the price). There aren't any common rooms where you can fit more than 5-6 people, even though the house sleeps many more than that. The living room and dining rooms are tiny. The nicer master bedroom gets extremely hot during the day, and stays that way all night because there isn't AC in the house. We couldn't use the master bedroom at all (nobody wanted to sleep there because of the insane heat). The other rooms were ok, none of them great. The lower floor has each room in a separate level, so you have to go up and down steps in order to go from one room to the next, which was not great for our 1-year-olds who were new at walking. Overall none of us liked the house. Would not recommend it at all. Did not have a great experience with the managers either.

Owner's Response: It's so sad to hear that this guest did not enjoy their stay! Town and Country is accurately photographed in the pictures on our website - the sitting rooms are not large as you can see, but there are 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths so it can sleep 10 to 12 guests. We've had many many happy guests in this home and it just depends on what one's needs are for their stay. Summer in Santa Barbara was unusually warm this year, but normally air conditioning is not needed with our marine climate.
