Luck was on our side when we made the call to this cozy and comfortable Inn that is tucked away in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley. From the moment we stepped into the lobby, we knew luck was only part of the equation as the other parts would be warm hospitality, an excellent location, tasteful amenities, pleasant staff and a lasting memory of our time in wine country.
Due to our late booking, we had to split our two nights in two seperate rooms--but that was totally fine. Both rooms were "roomy" and nicely appointed with gas fireplaces, flat screen tvs, large bathrooms w/jacuzzi tubs (one room actually had a steam shower)--nice touch.
The morning dining and afternoon wine tasting area is far from cramped and offers the chance to dine alone or chat with others who are in the area to taste wine and / or visit S.B. and Solvang. Overall, the area is very quiet and is walking distance to a handful-plus dining options and extra spots like Maverick's Saloon and an espresso coffee shop. All locations are within very short walking distance of the Inn.
The staff did a professional job of taking care of our needs, including offering to book local wine tours and restaurant reservations. The Inn's complimentary breakfast was simple and well done and when asked to make a few "special requests", the waitstaff and kitchen responded without hesitation.
The attention to detail works in all areas of this Inn. From the staff to the decor, it's a well run and operated business, that at the end of our stay--due to the sum of all its parts--we were made to feel at home and didn't want to leave.
