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!

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.

Great location spectacular property

  • 5 of 5

This massive, beautiful home was wonderful to stay in. The tub in the master bathroom is big enough for 2 and has soothing jets. Only complaint would be the lack of a king sized need in the master bedroom but that is very minor.
