About the Property

1 Bedroom - 1 Bath - Sleeps 3 - surrounded by beautiful oak trees

Little Bear Cabin: Some call it magical, transformative, charming, a authentic wine country experience. Whatever ever anyone says it’s always a great memory. Little Bear Cabin sits on Cricket Canyon Ranch in the heart of Santa Ynez.
The ranch is surrounded by thousands of majestic red and white oak trees, some dating back hundreds of years, before the Spanish Missions and Santa Barbara Presidio.
This very special ranch inspires all who visit with a sense of serenity as it posses a mystical quality that seems to transcend reality. It’s amazing what four thousand oak trees can do to ones spirit.
This is the Santa Ynez experience at its very best!
From hilltop vistas, the surreal Figueroa and Santa Barbara Mountains rise up from the valley floor and greet you with an awe inspiring panoramic views for your morning walk. In the evening, the hilltop provides the perfect spot for star-gazers, as the darkened valley is the perfect location to watch the heavens.
In contrast the ranch also provides the serenity of the oak meadows where you can picnic under huge oak limbs that seem to embrace you.
Each spring thousands of native birds migrate to the ranch and the lush oak canyons providing a chorus of songs throughout the day. We have a wide assortment of wildlife including; deer, bobcat, grey squirrels, coyotes, red fox, raccoons, owls, golden eagles, bald eagles, hawks, and falcons, all call the ranch home during different seasons.
Miles and miles of hiking, riding, cycling trails all seem to connect right from the ranch entrance. Want to bring your horses, no problem. The horse barn is a favorite hangout for the western pleasure crowd.
