Having accommodated its first guests in 1893, San Ysidro Ranch, is among California's most exclusive and historic hotels. For more than a century, celebrities, notable writers, politicians and other discriminating travelers have chosen the Ranch for its blend of exquisite natural beauty, storied heritage and discreet pampering.
Situated in the exclusive enclave of Montecito, near Santa Barbara, San Ysidro Ranch encompasses 500 acres between the Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. The Ranch is located just minutes from Montecito Village and downtown Santa Barbara and a short twenty minute drive to Santa Barbara Airport (private aircraft services are available). The Santa Ynez wine country is less than an hour's drive and private tours are available. The Ranch is located ninety miles north of Los Angeles.
THE STONEHOUSE Located in a 19th-century citrus packing house, The Stonehouse features a relaxing lounge with full bar service and a separate dining room with crackling fireplace and creekside views. Weather permitting, dine under the stars on the ocean view deck—a wood-burning fireplace and heated stone flooring provide year-round comfort. Chef John Trotta's regional cuisine is prepared with a palate of herbs and vegetables harvested from the on-site chef's garden.
