Our family held a 70th birthday party at the Inn and rented all rooms. Dave and his amazing team helped us plan the event and provided detailed support throughout our stay. We enjoyed a beautiful breakfast each morning and happy hour each afternoon. Our weekend included a private wine tasting, yoga in the wine garden, and a farm to table birthday dinner party! The rooms are all comfortable and spacious and the covered porch a charming gathering spot. We all have a forever memory made possible by Dave and his team. What a magical place.
When our son and his family moved to Santa Ynez last year, we couldn’t wait to meet our newest grandson and see their new place. We wanted to find lodging nearby so it would be convenient. ForFriends Inn is walking distance, so we figured we’d give it a try. A little over a year later, it’s become our home away from home. I think we’ve stayed there five times now. The proprietors, Katie and Dave, along with Sandra and Alicia, do a fantastic job. They are gracious and thoughtful. It’s always clean, Sandra makes delicious breakfasts and it’s a relaxing environment. It’s also right in town so you can walk to all the local places. I’m going to gush a little more about this charming inn: The hosts are knowledgeable about the area and local wine scene; they will happily help you figure out the best activities to check out when you're in the area. We love ForFriends and my wife is standing over my shoulder trying to get me to type more superlatives... but I have chores to do. One more thing: We were nervous about traveling there recently due to COVID but Dave, Katie and team are following protocols to the letter. We felt totally safe and comfortable. I recommend ForFriends Inn without hesitation. Oh yeah, and my wife does too… and wants to go there right now.…
A relaxing night away is just what we needed. Our room was beautiful but comfortable too with an outdoor patio. Breakfast was spectacular and not too heavy. Lot's of attention to detail! The location perfect for wine tasting. We'll be back!
What a great two night stay- everything was truly perfect. I can't say enough good things about the service and hospitality offered by Dan and the rest of the staff- I felt like I was a valued guest from start to finish.The rooms are clean, beds and furniture excellent, well maintained and bathrooms stocked. The breakfast each morning is delicious, and the wine tasting afternoon is a nice touch as well. Bonus points for the Tesla chargers on property.
My wife and I stayed 2 nights in the Demetria Suite. Beautiful large room with great porch complete with rocking chairs, super comfy bed and warm fireplace. The Inn serves a delicious breakfast and pours premium local wines each afternoon. Safe, healthy, and immaculately clean. Owner, hosts, and staff are gracious and helpful. Santa Ynez location is wonderful too.
