We stayed at the Ballard Inn for our Spring wine tasting in Santa Ynez. The rooms are individually decorated. The staff is very friendly and willing to help you find things to do in the area. The surrounding area is lush and green this year with all the rain. Breakfasts are unique with a different special each day. My one...

This small restaurant located in The Ballard Inn, combines Asian flavoring in an exquisite way pairing different flavors with well prepared meat and fish. The spicing is quite creative and distinctly unusual. You've not had this before. We celebrated a major anniversary at dinner and drove from Santa Barbara to get to this restaurant and it was well worth the...

I absolutely love the Ballard Inn. Charming quaint place. Rooms are always clean. The location is quiet and peaceful and the restaurant is unbelievable. They have a guy they use for taxi service into and home from town that is very personable I look forward to our next annual trip back!

My room, which I shared with a friend, was large and airy. The decor was Victorian.The bathroom and shower were fine with plenty of hot water and water pressure. The staff was quite helpful. The inn is quiet and has two areas to sit and read. Cell phone coverage is very spotty but they have great wifi. Early March was...

I use to love his place for a special occasion meal. However, I have been back for over 5 years. I read about the redecoration of the dining room and the new menu.

This B&B was so enjoyable. You need to have at least two days and nights minimum to fully enjoy the surroundings. Hotel decor is very inviting. Restaurant for breakfast is delicious. There are very good restaurants close by. There are various vineyards to occupy your time. Will certainly go back again. Staff is very helpful and friendly.

We just got back from our second trip to the Ballard Inn. We like this place a lot and look forward to returning. We did have an issue - we booked into the Davey Brown room which has a really cool decor. Problem is that it is right over the kitchen and the industrial strength exhaust fan was loud and...

Breakfast was a complete surprise of fresh fruits, bake goods and personalized orders on/or off the menu, all including with the room. Chef/ owner makes the world of difference. The walk around the neighborhood is quiet, safe and refreshing.
