About the Property

Charming guest cottage in the heart of Santa Ynez Valley.

Charming guest cottage in the heart of Santa Ynez Valley. The one bdrm cottage is separate from the main house with a private patio located at the back of it. It is situated on 4 acres and shared with dogs goats, 6 friendly geese, 3 turkeys, chickens and a tortoise! Animal Lovers Welcome

The guest cottage is set up for two adults, sorry no children. The one bedroom guest cottage is approximately 750sf. with 2 separate sleeping areas. One is in the bedroom with a full size bed and the other is located in the living room. It is a cubby hole that has a queen size mattress in it. It is very cozy!
Kitchen amenities include, stove/oven, fridge, sink, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, blender and all the service ware you need! A Samsung 42" flat screen tv with Directv premium channels is provided for your viewing. A full bath with a shower and tub awaits you. There is also a workspace if you need to do some work while here. The place is airy and bright with lots of windows and doors to let in the natural light.
On the back of the cottage is a brick outdoor patio with BBQ, table & chairs and two lounge chairs. The patio faces a vegetable garden. During the day we have free roaming chickens, 6 friendly geese and a big tortoise that you may encounter. Everyone is friendly. We let them out about 7am and they go to bed at dusk. The hens can make noise when laying an egg. Their new coop is out in our field near our barn. The rooster sleep area is insulated but it is possible to hear our roosters or any of the neighbors. This is the country! We also have 2 pygmy goats and 4 small dogs under 20 pounds. The main house with two adults and the 4 dogs is located on the same property. The garage is approximately 50ft from cottage and the house is attached going the other direction.

The cottage is for the guests only that book, no other sleep overs or other guests brought for entertaining etc. Booked guests only and no children.

We are located 2.5 miles from Los Olivos and downtown Santa Ynez. Santa Barbara is about 30 miles and Lake Cachuma is 13. The Danish town of Solvang is about 4 miles away. We are very close to some great winerys, Roblar, Beckman, & Bridlewood to name a few.

We do have wifi but it is very slow and not for streaming. It does allow you to do your basic internet searches and check email.

Check in is 3pm and check out is 11am

Any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

The Neighborhood

We are located at the end of a gravel country lane. We have working ranches around us that have horses, dogs, chickens, tractors etc. This is the country!! We are a stones throw away from Los Olivos and downtown Santa Ynez. We are also located close to some great wineries, Roblar, Beckman, & Bridlewood just to name a few.

The best way to get around is to drive. You can hire designated drivers if you are going to be drinking or wine tour companies. There are also bicycle rentals if you are feeling ambitious.

Other Things to Note

We put fresh organic eggs, oatmeal, coffee, and tea in the cottage for your breakfast. We will provide you with whole milk and half n half if requested in advance. The water is well water and is drinkable.
