Property description

Our Vineyard Retreat is an ideal romantic getaway. Our relaxing setting welcomes you the moment you arrive and lets you truly unwind and have a unique wine country experience. The retreat is off a private wing of our home on one of the smallest producing wineries in Santa Barbara County. The open vistas of our CCOF certified organic vineyard and surrounding farmland spread out before you and provide a relaxing view. We take great pride in all the details that make our guests crave to return again and again.

We also have a two-bedroom two-bath retreat located on our property overlooking our vineyard which can accommodate 2-4 guests (more info below)

The Vineyard Retreat: The Vineyard Retreat consists of one bedroom, a family room & kitchen nook, a fully stocked kitchen, & a bathroom. The bedroom has a super comfortable king-sized bed with luxurious bedding and custom over-sized pillows. The bathroom has a tub/shower combo & plush towels. The kitchen nook, family room, & kitchen are encompassed in the same space with beautiful views of the vineyard and mediterranean landscaping. There is a flatscreen TV and two iPod stations. Free wireless internet access is available. The kitchen is fully stocked to prepare a wine country meal but you don't want to miss out on the many fine dining establishments in the Santa Ynez Valley. Including our own highly reviewed and much loved Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Cafe! A private patio with table and teak steamers entices guests to soak in the tranquility of wine country life. In addition to our vineyard there are 4 acres of organically farmed land that grace the view.

A description of our Bernat Retreats is not complete without mentioning Gypsy, Juliet, and Fiona. Our dogs are the first to greet our guests, and our cat, Fiona, makes sure to stop by and see if there are any cat lovers visiting (if there aren't, she gets the hint).

Los Olivos and Surrounding Area: The 20+ tasting rooms, galleries, and restaurants, of our quaint little town, are a 10 minute walk (20 minute stroll) or a short bike ride away. We also offer complimentary cruisers.
The Santa Ynez Valley comprises the danish town of Solvang, the western themed town of Santa Ynez, Ballard, Buellton, and Los Olivos. Aside from tasting the many vintages of the Santa Barbara County wines the valley offers; biking, horseback riding (in fact, if you have a horse and want to bring them, we have room for two), hiking, fishing, live theatre, movie theatre, shopping, festivals, surfing and much more. Santa Barbara is a 40 minute drive and the beach is only 30 minutes.
If you only stay two nights, you'll wish you have stayed more!

Also on our property is our newly remodeled two bedroom-two bath, Winery Retreat, with it's own private bocce ball court (VRBO #474727. *Special Pricing for Single Couple*

About Us: Our life is about sharing the bounty and beauty of our piece of the world. Our restaurant is internationally recognized for serving the highest quality wine country cuisine that expresses the flavors of our area. Our wine is a complete reflection of the soil that it grows from. Family and Friends are at the center of who we are. Opening our Vineyard and Winery Retreats to others is another opportunity for us to share our countless blessings making them all the more meaningful.

About the owner: We love wine country living in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley. Our life revolves around family, friends, food, and wine. Now we are pleased to share our blessings and the beauty that surrounds us with others.

Why the Owner Chose Los Olivos, CA, USA:
Guests love our close proximity to town and the rural country surrounding that immediately welcomes them to wind down. Staying among the vines and farmland yet only a stroll away from downtown Los Olivos makes our retreats among the most desirable places to stay in the Santa Ynez Wine Country.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our guests get to experience a small family owned an operated working winery. And the tranquility of country life with the conveniences of being near all the fun that surrounds us. Just a 10 minute walk (15 minute stroll) and you will be in the charming town of Los Olivos with over 30 tasting rooms and shops. Solvang, Santa Ynez, and Buellton are all 5-10 minutes driving. The beaches and shopping of Santa Barbara is 35 minutes south. Lake Cachuma is 15 minutes away. And 45 minutes north of us is Pismo Beach and San Luis Obispo, another half hour of driving and you will find yourself in the Paso Robles wine country. For theatre goers the PCPA TheaterFest offers quality performances in their outdoor theatre in Solvang, all summer long.The rolling hills and Oak trees that surround us make our home beautiful year around.
