The For Friends Inn says you come as guests and leave at friends. That's the truth. The rooms were perfect (large and well appointed). The location in the Santa Barbara Wine Country was very convenient to get to the vineyards, restaurants etc. (I did the half marathon there and was within a block of the start line). The owners (Jim and Debbie) are wonderful people. They bend over backwards to help you find what ever you are looking for (restaurants, horseback riding, wine tasting) and make suggestions. The breakfast is 3 courses of yummy. Debbie makes her own fabulous granola. Happy hour is lovely. It is so gorgeous and peaceful there. You can really relax. And finally, there is Smitty, the golden doodle doggie with a personality that finishes the perfect package. Didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back!
