Tucked away in a beautiful private canyon three minutes from State Street, Los Gatos Cottage is a historic cottage with beautiful mountain views, located on an 8 acre private ranch. The property is located up a long private driveway just a few miles North of downtown Santa Barbara but feels worlds apart in a tranquil mountain setting. This beautifully appointed one bedroom/one bathroom cottage with large sunroom featuring two twin beds is ideal for couples or a family with children.
The master bedroom features a California King bed with luxurious linens, a sitting area, a walk-in closet and an attached bathroom with tub.
The property features a fully equipped kitchen with a stove, oven, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, blender, and dining area with seating for four.

The cottage also features high speed wireless internet throughout. The space is equipped with a flat screen TV, cable television, and an ipod docking station.
Off of the living room is a sunroom featuring a sitting area with a wicker wing chair for reading, a dining table, and a daybed/couch, which converts to a trundle bed with two twin mattresses. From this space, enjoy sweeping panoramic views of the ranch and surrounding mountains.
The cottage features several outdoor spaces, both sunny and shaded, ideal for relaxing or entertaining. The front patio includes a number of seating areas, an outdoor dining table with chairs and an umbrella, a gas BBQ, and a patio heater for enjoying outdoor dining and entertaining, while the back porch and surrounding gardens offer a tranquil place to enjoy mountain views, relax in a hammock, or take in a sunset.
Los Gatos cottage is perfectly location for those seeking peace and tranquility but who still enjoy being close to Santa Barbara’s top attractions. Just minutes away from State Street, the downtown area, shops, restaurants, and the beach, Los Gatos cottage is also less than 10 minutes from the Santa Barbara airport and the University.
