Our guest house is the perfect getaway for couples wanting to indulge in the sophistication of The Santa Ynez Valley. We are well situated and close to all wineries, restaurants, golf, and entertainment venues.
Our guest house is above the barn, located in the charming village of Ballard. It is in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley wine country. The apartment has 1 bedroom, a large bathroom, and living room. There are decks off of the bedroom and living room. There is a kitchenette with a microwave, refridgerator, and verissimo machine. The bedroom boasts high quality linens upon an extremely comfortable mattress. Guests are free to use the beautiful pool area. A light California breakfast is provided.
The surrounding area could not be more fantastic! There are many activities and sites to see. To begin with, we have miniature donkey and horse farms nearby. Pick up some fresh local strawberries and blackberries on the same road and enjoy the sweetness of the valley. Venture into the charming town of Solvang for a Faux trip to Denmark.
If you are a wine lover or foodie, there are plenty of wine tasting rooms throughout the valley as well as award winning restaurants. People say that we will be the next Napa Valley!
We are excited to share what we feel is a little slice of heaven.
Our guests will have access to the pool and jacuzzi. They are free to picnic or walk on the grounds.
We love to interact with our guests but at the same time respect their privacy . We will see a guest at check in, breakfast and checkout.
Our area consists of more than wine tasting. There are plenty of charming boutiques in Los Olivos, Santa Ynez, and Solvang. Our Hiking trails are beautiful.
We have gone from a high energy family raising three teenagers to almost an empty nest. Our property is quiet and well suited for an adult get a way. We are an early to bed early to rise type of family. Lights on the property are at least dim by 10:00p.m. We begin again by 6:00 am. We want to maintain a level of appropriateness which would mean no drunk and disorderly conduct. No Drug use. No smoking on the property anywhere. We do not allow any glass wine glasses by the pool. Only plastic.
We want our guests to feel the love our property has to offer. We would encourage picnics on the grounds, lounging by the pool, and walks down our road.
We are an open generous family that loves to have guests .
We have spent the last 19 years here raising our three children and putting our heart and soul into our home. We both work and are very busy but love the weekends we have guests that come to stay and enjoy our beautiful valley. We love the elements of entertaining and relish the idea of what a guest house should be! Our property in Ballard is on a quiet street of 5 acre parcels that is centrally located to everything in The Santa Ynez Valley. We added a lap pool a few years ago that has been one of our favorite additions to the property. There are many things to do in The Valley such as Wine tasting, shopping, wonderful new restaurants, hiking, biking, or just taking in the breath taking beauty of our Valley. You will find our hospitality generous and friendly. AS much as we love our pets, our place is not suitable for a pet stay. We have a horse named Secret who is older and very sweet but we ask that you not attempt to get into the corals with the horses because as friendly as they are, they can be unpredictable. If you want to, we can accompany you to meet them and offer them a biscuit or a carrot. We are a family of readers and you will always find a selection of books by your bedside to tire your eyes out. If there is anything you need in order to make your stay more comfortable, please feel free to ask.
