Folded Hills Ranch, a 600 acre, ultra private retreat, is located 10 minutes from the quaint Danish town of Solvang and provides serenity and unparalleled relaxation in nature. It is the perfect getaway for families and friends. Enjoy the many activities this property has to offer: a pristine lake and dock for sun bathing, lunching, fishing, kayaking and paddle boarding. There is a sparkling saltwater pool and hot tub, tennis court, an outdoor BBQ, a cozy outdoor fire pit, and hiking trails. It also includes an organic farm bursting with organic local produce--pick your own berries! Ambitious groups can set up softball, soccer, or golf games on the expansive 16-acre manicured sports field. Or, simply relax and admire the many domestic and wild animals grazing peacefully amid the rolling hills. Nojoqui Falls Park is a leisurely walk from the property, and Alisal golf course is 5 minutes away, with Sandpiper and San Marcos golf courses just a bit further. Gaviota Beach is a 10-minute drive, and downtown Santa Barbara is 40 minutes away. The historic Santa Ynez Mission, and shopping and dining in the charming towns of Solvang, Los Olivos, Santa Ynez, Buellton and Ballard are within minutes as well. Fabulous restaurants and some of the finest wine tasting in California await you. Explore the area on your own, or you may hire knowledgeable wine tour guides to find the locals’ best-kept secrets. Perhaps the ranch’s greatest offering is the luxury of doing nothing in peace and quiet. One feels a thousand miles away while rocking on the porch overlooking the Folded Hills.
