Spring is BEAUTIFUL at the Ranch!
A Country Escape in the Heart of Wine Country
The 'Ranch at Canyon Ridge' in the heart of the Santa Ynez wine country offers a soothing serenade for visitors who want to slow down and enjoy bountiful country life! The property is centrally located to all surrounding villages, all about a 10-15 minute drive.
There are 3 separate dwellings nestled among the majestic, ancient oaks that are joined by country lanes. There may be other travelers present during your stay; however, each unit is more than 100 yards away and is very private. Click on the "Gallery" navigation tab above to see details and photos of each sweet dwelling. The estate can be rented in its entirety or as individual cottages.
Guests can enjoy air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, free WiFi, and an Amazon "Alexa" in each of the dwellings available at the Ranch. If you're traveling with a Tesla, there is a 220V Tesla charging outlet on the property. Each one of the units comes with a complimentary bottle of wine and access to the large shared infinity pool and jacuzzi overlooking the property's lush fields.
Spend your days experiencing all the different facets of farm life throughout your stay. Take a stroll down "Harrison Lane" for a visit to our many farm animals on-site: Sugarplum, Trixybell, Gidget & Buttercup who are the 4 adorable goats, and "Harrison," the sweet resident llama.
Farm fresh eggs from the resident chickens will be provided for a healthy, hearty breakfast. If you're interested in private chef services, farm to table dinners, facials, massages or wine tasting tours, these services can be arranged by the homeowner.
This Ranch is situated in the perfect location to enjoy everything that the Santa Barbara Wine Country has to offer! In the middle of Ballard Canyon AVA, guests can walk 1 mile to the famous Rusack Vineyards, located just east of the property, or drive to a multitude of other vineyards with the whole group to understand what makes the grapes from this area so unique! The Ranch is also about 30 minutes Northwest of Santa Barbara over the San Marcos Pass and just 15 minutes beyond Lake Cachuma.
If the farm fresh eggs on the Ranch have you craving more locally raised produce, drive 11-minutes over to Ostrichland USA. Guests can feed the many ostriches and emus, sample some ostrich jerky, and purchase eggs for consumption or collection at this charming ranch!
On the nights that you aren't preparing meals at the property, the surrounding villages of Los Olivos, Solvang, and Santa Ynez have delicious local eateries for guests to experience, all within a 12 to 15 minute drive.
Other things to do… biking, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, wine tasting, photography, rodeos, horseback riding, antiquing, shopping, visit the surrounding restaurants in the darling villages of Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, Ballard and Solvang. For those who like a little blackjack, there’s the Chumash Casino (all about a 15min drive) There are also monthly, local celebrations to continually watch for.
