About Vicky Linker

My husband Gary and I have two children and built this cottage four years ago so I could pursue my love of sculpture. I use one room in the cottage for my work leaving the remaining 650 square feet to share with guests. Our family and friends have enjoyed the peacefulness and beauty of the cottage and now we are offering it to the public on a limited basis. I do not work in my studio when we have guests ensuring that you will have complete privacy during your stay with us. The cottage is a stand alone building on our beautiful one acre property.

Vicky Linker purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Vicky Linker chose Hedgerow

Montecito has many areas of quiet tranquility and beauty. Gary and I chose this property to raise our family. We welcome you to enjoy the gardens, lawns, fruit trees and recreational facilities.

What makes this cottage unique

The Cottage has several very endearing amenities including a beautiful sink that we purchased in Puerta Vallerta, handpainted tile in the kitchen, bathroom and fireplace, hardwood flooring, special lighting fixtures, as well as views of the mountains, backyard gardens, lawn and fruit trees.

A memorable weekend

  • 5 of 5

This is a quaint and lovely bungalow in Montecito, adjacent to Santa Barbara. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, and found it much more desirable than staying at one of the many hotels in the area. While we didn't cook any meals during our stay, we noted everything was there to do so on our next stay. We would recommend it.

Peaceful slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a getaway Labor Day weekend in this beautiful cottage without our kids. Vicky and her husband Gary were gracious helpful hosts who gave us our privacy, but were available, if needed. As others have mentioned, the photos don't do this cozy home justice. We're looking forward to returning in the future!

Gardner's delight

  • 4 of 5

Photos on line are the way the Cottage really looks. The owners are to be congratulated for showing the property as it really is. The Cottage is wonderful for 2 and it would be possible for 3 but with 1 bathroom it could be a little crowded. Furniture is just right for its envirornment , bed is very comfortable, linens throughout are well chosen. The couple who own this property are charming as well as helpful. Kitchen is well equipped, BBQ was clean and easy to use. Chairs on patio could use a cushion for comfort. We will look forward to another time.

Owner's Response: Hi Virginia, I thought you would be interested to know that we bought some very cushy cushions for the 2 chairs on the patio. Thanks for your suggestion and hope to see you again sometime!. Vicky

Located in beautiful Montecito you are moments away from tourist attractions, beaches or mountain hikes. Within one mile of the cottage you can find a variety of fine restaurants and high end shopping. Nearby Santa Barbara has more exciting visitor destinations, shopping areas, leisurely walking or hiking trails and restaurants. Our wharf and waterfront provide a lovely panoramic view of the city. You also have easy access to the Santa Ynez wineries. We are ninety miles from Los Angeles, 145 miles from Hearst Castle and 300 miles from the Bay Area.
