About the owner: Brian is an Architect that specializes in Christian based Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers all around the United States. Marcia is the horse specialist and coaches and trains people and their horses. Marcia works with all ages, but especially loves to work with children. Marcia also specializes in rescuing and rehabbing horses and putting them back into full service with their people. We participate and volunteer in The Ranch Church here in the Valley, a great place to visit if you're here over a Sunday. A casual upbeat Calvary Chapel Church with great worship music. This is a family business with our two adult sons Dan and Jeremy helping and participating in bldg, constr and upkeep of our 10 acre property. We have 2 grandchildren Noah 8 and Becca 19yrs that help too. Becca is our photographer! We have a couple of friendly dogs; MacKenzie and Cowboy. We look forward to meeting you when you check in. You will love our area and our home away from home all prepared for YOU!

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!!
