. We loved this place! It has everything you want from gorgeous big modern rooms, beautiful robes, fireplace and an amazing bathroom with jetted tub. In the evening there is complimentary wine with hot hors devours and later, deserts, coffee and tea. The fabulous breakfast in the morning was much more than I could eat. I thought it was just the sideboard covered in fresh fruits, juices, coffee, breads, muffins, and homemade granola (which you can purchase to take home with you). After finishing this, comes the “cooked to order” breakfast, which is really great!
The first night, we decided to watch the movie “Sideways” which was filmed in this area. The Inn keeps several copies along with lots of other movies for you to watch in your room. We both love this movie and it made the next day touring all the wineries in the movie even more fun. The countryside is amazingly beautiful and the people at the wineries were very nice.
On the drive to Santa Ynez from San Diego, we stopped at Chumash Painted Cave State Historic Park. It is a short drive off the main road between Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez. We also went to the Farmer’s Market in Solvang and had lunch at a lovely little sandwich shop, the Succulent Café. The sandwiches were great but one would have been enough for the two of us.
I would love to go back to this beautiful place soon. What a great getaway!
