Snuggled in the foothills of California’s Santa Barbara wine country, the intimate 20 room Santa Ynez Inn offers an atmosphere of understated, unspoiled luxury coupled with warm hospitality, for those seeking an indulgent wine country getaway. Designed after a historic turn-of-the-century Inn, juxtaposed with all the conveniences of a modern luxury boutique bed and breakfast, Santa Ynez Inn features a bespoke experience, for travelers looking for a unique, un-cookie cutter environment.
Not just for a special occasion, a retreat to the Santa Barbara wine country is in order for just about any time of year. Making Santa Ynez Inn your resting spot feels more like your residence while you see all of the sites in the area. All rooms feature a minimum of 12 foot ceilings yet are each unique to each other, from Cozy classic rooms, to Deluxe rooms with fireplaces, private balconies, oversized bathrooms with two sinks and finally the largest Premier rooms guaranteeing heated marble floors in the sumptuous bathrooms, steam rain head showers, Jacuzzi bathtubs with air-dry, fireplaces, and private balconies or patios. Pampering is part of the menu as spa treatments are available for guests in the lower lobby along with a small gym if you are so inclined.
Full breakfast is offered daily and nightly hors d’oeuvres around the roaring fire with samplings of wine from local Santa Barbara County wineries. The friendly town of Santa Ynez, the Inn offers several walking distance options for premier but smart-casual dining from Mexican to Italian and farm-to-table cuisine. The food is only comparable to the atmosphere, which is lively, local and fun. Return to the Inn for late tea and cookies by the fire before turning in.
Not just for individual travelers, the exclusive Santa Ynez Inn is also the perfect small group or wedding venue with options to reserve the entire Inn for a truly memorable event. Venues include a small comfy library for an intimate event complete with fireplace, to the Coach House just steps from the Inn for a larger event of up to 50 people. A large 1500 square foot grassy lawn area with a signature windmill serves as an ideal venue for parties, celebrations and ceremonies.
