Recently renovated, friendly staff and lavishly appointed rooms
Free breakfast, but no on-site restaurant
Santa Ynez Inn boasts 20 elegant rooms and suites in the heart of wine country. This Victorian-style, recently renovated boutique hotel – just 30 miles northwest of Santa Barbara – charms its guests with amenities such as antique furniture, whirlpool bathtubs and working fireplaces. You'll find high-tech features here too, such as flat-screen TVs and high-speed wireless internet, but chances are you'll be too busy to use them. Spend your days touring nearby wineries or indulging at the Santa Ynez Inn's spa – recent guests rave about the massages. And in the evening, snack on complimentary hors d'oeuvres before settling down for at the Vineyard House Restaurant, located next door. The inn is a little pricier than others in the area, but visitors found that the attention to detail and the exceptionally friendly staff members are worth the extra coin.
