Santa Ynez house description

Quail Casa, a charming and private Santa Fe inspired cottage nestled in an oak grove on 22 private acres in spectacular Ballard Canyon. Adjacent to the acclaimed Rusack Vineyard (Wrigley) and just off Ballard Canyon Road. This property is close to all of the top wineries and steps from the Amgen tour time trial routes featuring top cyclists, (Tour De France). Take a break from wine tasting and visit the Danish Village of Solvang, 3 minutes away or the quaint art village of Los Olivos, 5 minutes away.

Tastefully decorated with all the comforts of home. Bedrooms have Vintage Washed Belgium Linen bedding with plush pillow top mattresses . Each bedroom has french doors that lead to the lilac and rosemary garden pathways. Take a small hike to the top of the hill to see the spectacular views of the canyon.

Kitchen has been fully stocked with anything you will need for a night of entertaining. French doors open up to the patio area that has a grill, fire pit and patio furniture. Sit back and relax under the stars with your favorite wine you have chosen from a day of wine tasting.

In the morning, enjoy your coffee in the country setting watching the Quail and the Bunnies roam around. You will feel miles away from the hustle and bustle yet close to everything that you visit Santa Barbara wine country for.

No detail has been overlooked, with decorator touches that make you feel at home from the moment you arrive. There is also a small room not picture that is off the master where you could put a portable crib. There is also a desk and chair in the room if you feel inspired to write the next big hit.
