Montecito cottage description

Orchard House is a Quintessential 1940's Montecito Guest Cottage located in the Upper Village of Montecito. Wood windows and french doors open out to mature landscaping & gardens. A front privacy gate closes off the property, leaving you with all the peacefulness and ease that equals a well deserved retreat.

So close to all the amenities and activities that Montecito and Santa Barbara has to offer, yet so far away from 'tourbillon d'activity'. Relax on Adirondack chairs, look out to the mountains, or listen to the birds that flock to the mature gardens surrounding the cottage. Sit back after a long day of exploring the area on the patio chaise lounges, with a glass of local Santa Barbara wine. Or take a stroll around the neighborhood and discover the unique row of cottages that are full of history and charm.

The Guest Cottage has a detached bedroom pavilion with a Queen size bed, and Egyptian cotton sheets adding to the luxury. This sweet and tranquil bedroom is surrounded by tall windows and french doors, opening up to the night sky. Many a falling star has been sighted while dozing off in this special cottage bedroom. The bath is a short 12 steps away into the Main Cottage.

Additionally, a comfy Double size sofabed, occupies the Main Cottage Living Room area. Plenty of space and comfort for 2 more Guests.

There is a Full Bathroom, with Shower, Tub, and Skylight in the Main Cottage.

The kitchen is equipped with a cute efficiency stove, Coffee Maker, Microwave, Toaster, and all the Dishes and pans you'll need to cook up your organic produce and meats purchased at one of the local Farmer's Markets.

The Living Room area has a Flat Screen TV, with local and nationwide programming. If available, a Record Player will be set up for your analog enjoyment, with a selection of vinyl to choose from. A few select DVD movies and books will also be available for use.

The beautifully private Garden has a relaxing sitting area, facing the mountains, and near a mature 60 year old Avocado Tree (which produces the BEST avocados you've ever tasted, and free for the taking)!! A great place for afternoon Tea.

You'll feel so at home, in the little Orchard House, that you'll never want to leave...
