Wonderful Property for a Family Gathering
My family had such a great experience at this location. The owner and groundskeeper were extremely helpful. There was plenty of space in the 3 cottages and the division of the property allowed for creative groupings based on bedtimes (a cottage was devoted to families with little ones in order to have a quiet space for naps and early bedtime). The grounds were so beautiful and the decor inside the cottages was a little quirky and odd but added to the fun whimsical experience of the whole stay. The outdoor games and huge lawn were a major source of fun for the kids. The multiple kitchens were great for meal preparation. The outdoor lighting was just perfect. The proximity to the beach was a fantastic bonus that we did not plan on having (approximately 1 mile from Loon Point Beach access). My whole family cannot stop talking about how much they all loved the weekend and already asking when we can return. I highly recommend this property!
Had our dream wedding at the beautiful Cottages!
My fiancé and I found this place on VRBO when looking for a venue for our wedding. We met Barb and Neil and fell in love with the property, home, location and owners. Our family was able to stay with us on the property for two full days prior to the wedding and a day following. This allowed us to have our dream DIY wedding at the Cottages at Polo Run with bringing in everything ourselves. We had about 200 guests, food truck, full dance floor and large tent for all of our guests which we brought in through vendors. Our ceremony and reception were held on the open field and we were able to run over to the beach for photos at sunset. The place was gorgeous and so easy to host a large party at. Barb and Neil were so helpful and a blessing to work with. Would highly recommend staying here or hosting a party/wedding/family reunion here. Our family now hopes to come back for a family reunion because we enjoyed our stay so much! Thank you Barb and Neil for allowing us to enjoy our special day at your beautiful home.
Beautiful Historical cottages & grounds
My daughter & son-in-law hosted their wedding at this beautiful property & couldn't be more pleased. The location was wonderful, the cottages & grounds well maintained. Close enough to the quaint towns of Carpenteria & Summerland, but feels very private. The owners were so accommodating and truly cared about our stay. The groundskeeper, Rolando was very efficient and helped with anything we requested. Would love to stay here again for a family reunion. If you are considering this property for a family get away or hosting an event, you will love it.
Beautiful property with kind and gracious owners
This is a beautiful and sprawling property between the mountains and the beach. It's open and green and charming and made me immediately feel at ease. I contacted the owners about the possibility of doing my wedding there. They worked with us to craft an out-of-the-box wedding weekend that included hosting our families for several days in the cottages, a large rehearsal dinner with dancing, and a wedding and reception in the large yard. I loved that the cottages allowed us to have our families stay together and make it feel like a casual backyard wedding even though we had 200+ people. Throughout the process, they were helpful, flexible, and I never felt like they were trying to nickel and dime us in the ways that other venues do.
Unfortunately, due to mudslides that shut down the 101, we had to change plans at the last minute and we weren't able to actually use the property. But Barb was very gracious in the midst of the chaos, and I felt like she was very honorable in refunding us even though the circumstances were outside of her control. The highway has reopened and the property is as beautiful as ever. Whatever you're looking for- from a quiet retreat to a large event- the Cottages are versatile and charming, and the owners are open and helpful.
Wonderful Accommodations and Setting for a Larger Group
Phenomenal stay at The Cottages, with plenty of space and privacy for our large group. The grounds were amazing. We ended up getting the "game package" which was perfect for entertaining everyone. It is a gated property which made us feel secure. Highly recommend.
Wonderful place for a get-together
Wonderful property with plenty of room. Great for entertaining out of town guests (We had a group of 14). Lots of fun games and room to entertain; and a wonderful host who was very responsive about everything!
