Rancho Foxen Canyon - A Tranquil Getaway

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Ranch estate with 2 bedroom Guest House Suite and 1 bedroom Guest Cottage Studio

As you turn and exit from the Foxen Canyon Wine Trail, enter through the stone and hand forged wrought iron gates and discover Old California at its finest with 36-plus magical acres of tranquility. A winding country lane shaded by stately olive trees hints of the seclusion beyond. The estate vineyard on the right provides for some of the finest Santa Ynez Valley wines. The ranch’s barn and friendly cow Ferdie were recently featured in December 2012 Santa Barbara Magazine. The Guest House Suite and Guest Cottage Studio are located adjacent to the barn.

This two-bedroom, two-bath California ranch Guest House Suite provides a wide, shaded front porch to relax and capture the views of rolling hills, mature oak trees, green pastures, a multi-fruit orchard, colorful blue Lilly of the Nile and antique irises, and expanses of vineyards. Your senses will be aroused by the scents of lavender and rose and the chatter of wildlife including hawks and owls. The Guest House Suite itself is Western in design includes original Board and Batten exterior, hand hewn carpentry, attention to detail and superb Artisan finishes throughout with all the modern amenities.

This property is ideally located for a tranquil getaway, adventure seeking cyclists and/or wine tasting excursions. The ranch is, also, ideal for families of all ages.

Adjacent to the Guest House Suite, a comfortable Guest Cottage Studio for friends, extended family, or a nanny is available. This very private, one room, one bath (shower) Guest Cottage Studio is equipped with a full kitchen and may accommodate one or two persons.

Rancho Foxen Canyon is a family ranch that includes horses, cows, dogs, cats, goats, geese and chickens. For a little adventure, there are many areas of the ranch to relax and enjoy, take a walk along the private country pathways and visit the vineyard, the summer garden, the multi-fruit orchard, the barn, the rose garden along the Alamo Pintado creek bed, the chicken house and animal pastures.

Rancho Foxen Canyon is a 5 minute drive (25 minute brisk walk) to the town of Los Olivos, or a 10 minute drive to the town of Santa Ynez, and a 15 minute drive to Solvang.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I stayed with my 4 siblings this weekend, Friday and Saturday. What an amazing surprise we had on the property. Everything was perfect. Each detail of decoration so creative and appropriate to the area. A western paradise! The owners were so friendly and helpful. We would love to return. We forgot to sign the guestbook so please let the owners know from us how great our stay was!!!
