Property description

This 214 acre ranch has been in our family since the 1800's. It's just a short drive north of Santa Barbara and just up the canyon from Refugio State Beach. It was homesteaded by my Grandfather and owned by my family ever since...The cabin is well over 100 years old and is about 3 1/2 miles up beautiful Refugio Canyon. It is surrounded by steep mountains, old Oak and Sycamore trees with a dry creek in the back that runs during rainy weather. Another creek on the Ranch runs all year long. The cabin with it's warm welcoming ambiance has all the comforts of home and will tempt you to come back again and again...
There are many nearby attractions such as the Ronald Reagan Tour just up the hill from us, horseback riding, Solvang Danish Community and many beautiful beaches including my favorite 'Refugio Beach' to name just a few...This is a surfer and wine enthusiast paradise
If you feel like going out but don't want to drive just ask us about our limousine service...We can arrange to take you to dinner, site seeing or a wine tour of the Santa Ynez Valley...
Holidays spent here are another nice experience or just a hide away for you to come when you just need to get away from all the routine and just relax...
Though newly renovated it still has that old world charm. Whatever your reason to come visit I assure you, you will not regret this memorable experience. Come and breath the fresh air and drink water from our own spring...

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1896

About the owner: I grew up here with my parents and 5 sisters and two brothers...I went to a small school just up the coast from first to eighth grade and then went to Santa Ynez High School. I have lived here most of my life and though I have traveled to some beautiful areas in my life, but nothing is more beautiful then this ranch...

Why the Owner Chose Goleta, CA, USA:
I have lived on the ranch most of my life. The property was passed down to my dad from his father who built the cabin as part of the original homestead rules and than he passed it to me for all the family to enjoy... My dad built the house I live in here on the ranch and my family gather here for many things such as birthdays and holiday...My Mother designed the house to be roomy and comfortable for us all...

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Because my family has so much history here it is a place I cherish. We all have so many fond memories. It is such a good feeling to know that even though my parents experienced so many ups and downs in life they were able to hold on to this ranch...The history here goes back to the covered wagon days when my grandfather had a stagecoach stop and general store here...My dad told us stories of bandits riding up on horses and how he would run and hide behind a tree when he was a little boy until he knew if there was danger...My dad was born here on the ranch in the Early 1900's! My grandpa made wine from the grapes he grew on his grape arbor...As a child my siblings and I liked to sit under that same grape arbor and eat grapes and play...
