"This two-story inn may look 100 years old, but it's actually of modern construction, offering contemporary comforts and charming country details like wicker rockers on a wraparound porch." - Frommer's
The Inn is located in the historic town of Ballard nestled in the heart of Santa Barbara wine country.

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.
