We stayed at the Upham Country House over the Memorial Day weekend and enjoyed our stay immensely. The staff were very hospitable, and the included breakfast was absolutely wonderful. We had quiche and french toast on successive mornings, both of which were very tasty. We also took advantage of the nightly fresh baked cookies which were a treat after a day of roaming Santa Barbara's shops and restaurants.
The Upham Country House is located 2 blocks from State street, which allowed us to leave our car behind and explore the area on foot. It was a wonderful staging area for our day trips to explore the shops and restaurants. We were blocks away from several very good restaurants, and we were even able to walk to the Santa Barbara mission to enjoy an art festival.
Our room was very comfortable, with an in-suite fireplace and french windows opening up over a private garden. The sounds of the birds in the morning was very relaxing, and the private view left you feeling like you might be out in the country rather than 2 blocks from the heart of downtown Santa Barbara.
Overall, we were very happy with our stay and definitely plan on staying again in the future.
