If you’re exploring Santa Barbara’s charming Santa Ynez region, a great spot to stay (with a fabulous central location in the town of Santa Ynez) is the Santa Ynez Inn.
The charming library which is so cozy and inviting.
The dining room where complimentary happy hour and breakfast is served to guests. I experienced both during my stay and loved this touch. The breakfast is daily from 7:30am to 10:30am, and the happy hour starts at 6pm with cheese, wine, and other light bites.
The room I stayed at during my visit to the Santa Ynez Inn.
The beautiful gardens at the hotel. This was being used for a wedding the weekend I visited and it was beautiful!
