$199 - Santa Ynez Wine Country 4-Star Escape, Reg. $360

Sold out - This deal was published January 02, 2013 and sold out January 09, 2013.
By Travelzoo Staff
A romantic trip for two to the Santa Ynez Wine Country awaits at 45% off regular prices. Travelzoo negotiated a deal with the 4-star Ballard Inn that includes accommodations for two, a full cooked-to-order breakfast, wine-tasting passes, a gourmet picnic lunch and a bottle of wine upon arrival.

Why we love it

  • Escape to this quiet neighborhood bed-and-breakfast, 30 miles from Santa Barbara. With this deal, guests can sip wine then kick back with a picnic -- supplied by a local gourmet grocery store -- that includes fruit, a fresh baguette and cheese.
  • Guests rave about the homemade cookies delivered nightly during turn-down service. Expect tempting surprise flavors like lemon sugar cookies with raspberry or shortbread with chocolate drizzle, baked fresh each morning.
  • The inn is known for its intimate, candlelit restaurant. Savor the creations of chef Budi Kazali, named Central Coast Magazine's Ultimate Chef.

The porch is a lovely place to enjoy the complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvres in the evening.

Very friendly and helpful staff. I love that there's no TV in the room.

The overall comfort of the inn, from the rooms to evening wine and snacks, to great breakfasts.

The rooms, the quiet, the service, the wine tasting, the dinning, everything.

Would like to go again.

We enjoyed the quaintness of the Inn and the beautiful Victorian room we stayed in. The personal were gracious and attentive. It was reasonably priced with all the perks. Enjoyed the winery and touring Solvang. The highlight of the trip was seeing Shirley Jones. She was so gracious and very beautiful.
