Everything about this Inn was fabulous. The deluxe king room we stayed in was beautiful. The food was delicious. The service was excellent. Would definitely stay again if visiting the wineries in the area.

This is a great place to,stay in the Santa Ynez Valley. It is close to Solvang and Wine tasting. The Victorian style is very cute and the rooms are very traditional. The bathrooms are roomy and first rate. You can walk into the cute little town for dinner but start out with the wine tasting and appetizers at the Inn.

Based on a recommendation of a friend, we reserved a room for a 2 night 3 day stay to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary. Upon our arrival, we were warmly received by the on duty hostess "Janet".

The room was probably the largest I have ever stayed in, just huge, with a cozy gas fireplace and large, comfy sitting chairs in front. The bed was memory foam, which is not my favorite, but was quite comfortable. My only suggestion would be that they provide some sort of placard or cheat sheet describing the numerous control panels for... More
