$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 Ballad Inn is quiet. We are from New England and happy to be out of the snow and cold. Food is great. The room is beautiful. Staff are friendly.
