Welcome to Santa Ynez Inn

A sophisticated wine-country luxury inn

Snuggled in the foothills of California’s Santa Barbara wine country, the newly remodeled 20 room Santa Ynez Inn offers an atmosphere of understated, unspoiled luxury coupled with warm hospitality, for those seeking an indulgent wine country getaway. Designed after a historic turn-of-the-century Inn, juxtaposed with all the conveniences of a modern luxury boutique bed and breakfast, Santa Ynez Inn features a bespoke experience, for travelers looking for a unique, un-cookie cutter environment.

Not only for special occasions, a retreat to the Santa Barbara wine country is in order for just about any time of year. Making Santa Ynez Inn your resting spot feels more like home while you visit all of the sites in the area. All rooms feature a minimum of 12 foot ceilings, yet each one is unique - from our cozy Classic Rooms with plush bedding and large bathrooms to our Premier Suites with heated marble bathroom floors, rain shower heads, whirlpool tubs, fireplaces, and private balconies or patios. Pampering is part of the menu as spa treatments are available for guests along with a small gym, if you are so inclined.

Full breakfast is offered daily, and local wine from Santa Barbara Wine Country is served nightly in our newly renovated parlour. The inn resides near several walking-distance options in our friendly town for a delicious dining experience - from Mexican to Italian to farm-to-table cuisine. The food is only comparable to the lively, local, and fun atmosphere. Return to the Inn for late tea & cookies by the fire before turning in.
