San Ysidro Ranch is a sophisticated 500-acre cottage-style resort in the leafy foothills of Montecito, just outside Santa Barbara. Landscaped grounds contain 41 handsome lodgings in peaked-roof cottages, many with generous sitting areas, baths with radiant-heat floors, working fireplaces or stoves, polished oak floors and private patios; some have hot tubs and outdoor rainfall showers. Creekside one-bedroom Willow Suite is very special, along with premium cottages such as “Kennedy” and romantic “Gardenia.” Dining venues include the award-winning indoor/outdoor Stonehouse restaurant and Plow & Angel bistro. Among the amenities at San Ysidro Ranch are a heated outdoor hillside swimming pool, more than 17 miles of hiking trails, a fitness studio and a spa offering massage and beauty treatments that mainly employ Valmont products.
