Parking For RV/Boat/Trailer:
No charge to park an RV if it is not to be used. We have a 15 a day fee if you are going to live in while here and use our water and electricity. Some have done it that way. 4 adults live inside the Ranch House and the overflow family sleeps in the RV which is right outside the spacious area next to the Ranch House. A great way to expand the facilities and enjoy the Ranch House. Ample seating for larger crowds for meals and hanging out indoors or outdoors. The Ranch House is only limited by the number of bed spaces in the house....moreless

Why the Owner Chose Santa Ynez, CA, USA:
We love the area, the people, the shops and restaurants etc. Our favorite restaurant is The Los Olivos Cafe; our favorite shop is Back At The Ranch in SY. There are many, many places to visit and see. Serious bike riders LOVE this area. There are so many places to train. Horse people LOVE this area. There are several guided trail ride operations in the area with nice trails. If you bring your own horse there are trails nearby where you can ride in the mountains and by Cachuma Lake. If you just want to get some R & R, The Country Ranch House is nice enough to just stay and enjoy with the amenities it provides. You will go home refreshed and ready to face the world once again! We have many celebrations here. A Day in the Country, Danish Days, Santa Ynez Valley Days and more. We have parades for every holiday in various of the towns here. We have music festivals and music & movies in the park in downtown Solvang. The visitors bureau will help us to collect all the dates of all that happens here. And of course Wine Tasting has become a very BIG draw here. Wineries galore. We have begun a fun wine exchange program. Buy your favorite wine and leave a bottle with a message on the bottle, take a bottle another guest has left for your fun. Take one, Leave one...a great exchange idea!!
