“Idyllic wine country weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

We spent three nights at the Meadowlark in September while attending a wedding nearby.

>The location is perfectly located between Solvang and Los Olivios and a great starting off point for restaurants, wine touring and sightseeing.

>The staff could not have been friendlier or more accommodating. From providing wine openers to extra tables to arranging for taxis into town and wine tours, every request was met with a smile. Each member of the Meadowlark team truly seems to enjoy their position and take pride in what they do.

>The rooms are great, especially if you're going with a group of people - we were constantly dragging the chairs from our front patio to each others to share a glass of wine. The beds were soft and comfy and the kitchen was great to have for stocking cheese and wine. There is an amazing gourmet market -- El Rancho -- less than a mile from the Meadowlark that has everything you need to set up for the weekend.

>The property is charming - we were able to take advantage of the firepit in the common area one night with our entire group - fun to sit around with a glass of wine in front of the fire and watch the stars.

>If you are looking to go on a wine tour, look no further than the Meadowlark's own Brigette. A wealth of knowledge and contacts in the area, Brigette took us to four wineries. Including lunch, it was $125 per person - less than half of what you'd pay in Napa and Sonoma - without a hint of pretentiousness.

>We never made it to breakfast before 10, so i can't comment on the hot foods, but the cinnamon bread was fantastic and the coffee nice and strong.

>Overall, the Meadowlark made our trip up to Solvang for the weekend into a relaxing getaway. I'd recommend it to anyone just going to unwind and enjoy!

This B&B is just outside of Solvang, and is a wonderful country retreat. We arrived just in time for some complimentary wine and munchies. We took our glass and sat outside in the gazebo and sank into relaxation. We only stayed one night so didn't have a chance to use a lot of the facilities which include: a bbq, firepit, picnic tables, and a swimming pool. Our room had two queen size beds, dining table,and a kitchen. The furnishings are definitely country, and included a wonderful rocking chair. My only complaint would be that I wish that there had been a bathtub.

The staff was so friendly and helpful. We were very touched by the complimentary bottle of champagne put in our room to celebrate my birthday. The breakfast was also wonderful, with pastries, cereal, fruit, yogurt, and a egg burrito. I saw that other reviews said the breakfast was small, but if it is a bit picked over just let the front desk know you are there and they will quickly fill the plates and make you something hot. At least that was our experience.

We will definitely be coming back, and hopefully stay longer.

Just east of Solvang, this place offers a relaxed country-type setting. Our bedroom was spacious and adjoined a sitting room that included a refrigerator, microwave oven and sink. After a round of golf in mid-90 degree weather, it was pure joy sitting in the tree-shaded garden with a cool drink. A fountain gave an added touch of tranquility. A light breakfast was offered in a small, bright dining area. Definitely worth a repeat visit.

Room Tip: Great location and worth the money.

Staff were warm, friendly and super nice. We came here for my wife's b-day getaway. Brought 2 toddlers but totally enjoyed our stay. Beautiful garden and great scenery. Delicious breakfast. Room itself is cozy and clean. We even picked up some grapes per owner's recommendation which my kids totally enjoyed. I can really see and feel how happy they were. Stayed here for 2 nights and indeed, it was a great experience worthy to remember.

this place is set in such a relaxing country type atmosphere felt like my own home especially outdoors in the garden and around the firepits and barbeques that they have setup outside.The rooms were very clean & comfortable. The staff was very friendly, and the breakfast was good. Would definitely stay here again!

Stood here for our 7 year wedding anniversary overnight got the pinot suite w/ Jacuzzi tub. The husband and I went to grab some chocolate strawberries and wine after a wonderful dinner at the hitching post and saw a great play. Very quiet and peaceful here would definitely stay here again.
