:: DESCRIPTION ::
Restoration Oaks Vacation/Retreat House and Guest Bungalow—completely remodeled, hip, modern, and rustic. This makes it a great choice for small to medium sized groups looking for modern amenities, great decorating, comfort, and locational convenience — all in a natural, rustic setting on a 1,000 acre working Ranch. The Retreat House and adjoining Cookhouse (an additional cabin-like lounge room for playing games or just hanging out) are located directly off Highway 101, near the front of the property at Restoration Oaks a Cattle Ranch & Blueberry Farm near the Santa Ynez Valley. In addition to the main house, there is also a 2 bedroom (1 queen bed in each), 1 bath Guest Bungalow with its own small kitchen and living room that can be used as a third bedroom (privacy curtain, IKEA fold down couch.
The seemingly endless cattle trails and miles of private dirt roads on the property, are great for hiking, jogging, and mountain biking. Your group will enjoy the rolling hills, mountains, canyons, valleys, and seasonal creeks and ponds. During winter and spring months the grass is green and the ponds are often full, while the rest of the year tends to be more dry. It all depends on recent rainfall, but either way, there are always beautiful views and interesting areas to explore. NOTE: For general safety, we strongly suggest exploring in pairs or small groups. Children should always be accompanied and supervised by adults when away from the residential areas.
Wireless Satellite Internet, iPod ready sound systems, 2 flat screen DishNet TVs, Wii Gaming System, and a Kawaii piano, are a few of the extra touches that make the Retreat House and Guest Bungalow at Restoration Oaks an enjoyable place to host retreats, small family get-togethers, and relaxing vacation getaways.
We also host Weddings and other Events. (Please send an email to restoration oaks@gmail for more information).
The Retreat House is minutes away from many local WINERIES—we're just 5 minutes from Buellton, (the town where the MOVIE 'SIDEWAYS' was filmed) ', 15 minutes from Chumash CASINO, and a little less than 10 minutes from the Danish town of SOLVANG (see listing for other local attractions). WINE TASTING is a favorite passtime in our area, and Buellton has several top end restaurants to choose from. Buellton also has convenient SHOPPING, including a large Albertson's Supermarket, and CVS Pharmacy in the Buellton Shopping center. Just a little further is the Danish town of Solvang, with enough shops and gift stores to fill a day. Los Olivos is a town full of ANTIQUE SHOPS—20 minutes north on Hwy. 101.
For a real ‘laid back’ treat, try star gazing. The lack of city lights seems to make the stars shine brighter than many are used to, and relaxing under the night sky is easily one of the least strenuous ways to spend the end of a great day.
Families, groups, friends, and Guests who hold specialized retreats at Restoration Oaks, all seem to love their experiences there. We hope you will too.
NOTE: If using Google Maps, type only the three words, Restoration Oaks Ranch, into the address field—not the actual mailing address.

About the owner: Craig and Ika
Why the Owner Chose Santa Ynez:
The expansive, all natural surroundings of 'The Ranch', as well as access to nearby wineries and plenty of other things going on, really does make our location perfect for hanging out with friends, enjoying family get-togethers, or just spending time hiking, exploring, and ...appreciating all that's there. We really do love the fact that others can also experience this uplifting environment and enjoy similar times while staying at Restoration Oaks.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
When I’m out riding on our dirt roads, I feel like I'm a million miles away from civilization—but if I need something, I can drive for 5 minutes to town and get just about anything I want. I also enjoy picking our seasonal blueberries and photographing the native (almost untouched) landscape. Of course, the house itself is a joy to stay in. The air conditioning might be my favorite thing, but I also appreciate the high-end amenities we’ve built into the house. I especially enjoy playing the piano any time of the day or night without having to worry about disturbing someone else. When friends stay at the house, or when our families get together, there's always more than enough to keep us laughing, and plenty of parking. The way the outside areas flow and connect with the houses, allows us to all be together while enjoying smaller group discussions—at the same time.
