Insider Tips

Gourmet breakfast, in-room fireplaces, balconies and patios, spa, meetings and events


A treasure in the heart of Santa Barbara wine country, the sumptuous Santa Ynez Inn welcomes guests with elegance and grace. Its authentic turn of the century architecture and antique furnishings are so genuine that first-timers are surprised to learn that this gem was built from scratch just a decade ago.

The inn has been honored with the AAA 4-Diamond award rating every year since opening, and was named in Trip Advisor’s Top 25 Small Hotels list in 2013 and 2014, as well as one of its Top 25 Romantic Inns in 2014. It offers an ideal oasis after a day of touring, tasting, and exploring the quaint towns of Santa Ynez, Solvang, and Los Olivos. Most of the 20 impeccably decorated guest rooms provide fireplaces, steam showers with heated floors, and jetted whirlpool tubs. All rooms feature high-definition flat screen TVs with satellite reception and DVD players, and cozy bathrobes and slippers.
Sophisticated charm exudes from every corner of the inn, cascading out to the landscaped lawn and gardens. It’s a popular venue for weddings and other important events. Beyond the main building’s 850-square-foot Parlour and 270-square-foot Library for small parties, the 1,000-square-foot Coach House provides an ideal venue for receptions and banquets. And, given that the sun is usually shining in Santa Ynez Valley, couples often choose the lawn and garden for a wedding site.
But even when there’s a meeting, wedding, or wine tasting underway, a feeling of serenity prevails through the gracious halls and rooms of Santa Ynez Inn. Each day begins in the French-country dining room with a delicious gourmet breakfast. Beyond a continental breakfast, guests are offered daily delicacies prepared by the inn’s chef. Favorites include Italian eggs Benedict and French toast with gingered peaches and cream. At cocktail hour, wines from a local winery are featured (sometimes poured by the winemakers themselves). And later, an evening dessert buffet provides a finishing touch to the day.
Understated yet elegant, delightful, and pampering, Santa Ynez Inn brings a new level of hospitality to Santa Barbara wine country.
