By dumb luck we heard of the Santa Ynez Inn, it is an great find. The staff was wonderful and very friendly. The room was large and very comfy with its own fireplace and jacuzzi tub. They had breakfast in the morning, a wine and cheese hour and a desert hour. We had such a good time all we could... More

In the middle of the Santa Barbara wine country, this is a very comfortable option to stay to explore the wineries. The area is nothing like Napa or Sonoma. It's a relative newcomer to the California wine scene. We did a few tastings, including an excellent one at Liquid Farm.

My husband travels to California a bit for business so we decided this was going to be a yearly excursion for us. I called in July 2014 to make a reservation for our... More
