Guestbook comments from the owner

Amazing house, gorgeous setting! It truly makes you feel like you are away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet this house is SO convenient to shops, restaurants and wineries. All that is best about the Santa Ynez Valley. We booked the house for a girls baby shower weekend get away and it was perfect! Very spacious living space, nice relaxing patio surrounded by Oak Trees and so much to do in the Valley literally 5 minutes away. I highly recommend this property and it was MUCH more enjoyable then a Hotel!

Wonderful Stay!!

An entire family of 10 stayed in this lovely property. It fit everyone comfortably; babies, adults, and the older parents. We had a wonderful time. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in this beautiful property.

Charming, spotless, very well-appointed, and spacious: a real get-away!

  • 5 of 5

Even with the 10 of us, this property felt open and never cramped. Comfortable seating everywhere, inside and out. Great common areas with lots to do (classic board game selection, perfectly placed pool table, horses to visit). The air mattress is a deluxe one: very comfortable! The whole master bedroom suite (what a shower!) was especially lovely. The totally flat one-floor set-up in the house makes it very accessible for all. Location close to Solvang center (nearby you can connect to the little bike path to get there), and the El Rancho market a few blocks away had good prices and selection. Barb was super helpful with our questions ahead of time. Thank you for a wonderful retreat!

Perfect Escape

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I originally found the River Road Ranch while looking for accommodations for a wine run. After the run was postponed due to weather, we decided to come and just relax and enjoy the house.

It was perfect!! Plenty of room for 9, tons of activities to keep us busy (we especially loved the neighboring horses), and amazing views to just sit and relax.

Barb was wonderful as well. She responded quickly to our questions ahead of time and made us feel very relaxed and welcome. We are already wishing we were back. Many thanks for a great getaway!

beautiful house very close to solvang

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful house at a great location. This house is a perfect vacation home very close to Solvang . House is very well maintained and we enjoyed our stay very much with our friends.

My only issue was with kitchen utensils, I think some of the pots and pans needs to be replaced and it could also use a few more bowls and spatulas and ladles . Would totally return to this property.
