Hotel Description

This spot on the outskirts of Santa Barbara hasn’t been a ranch, strictly speaking, for quite some time, unless one considers rustling up the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Winston Churchill and John and Jackie Kennedy (not all at the same time, mind) to be a traditional ranching activity. San Ysidro Ranch, these days, is more like what might have once been called a health farm, albeit an exceedingly luxurious one.

Rather than steaks and eggs, or whatever it was that Old West ranchers ate, guests at San Ysidro dine on California cuisine prepared largely from the gardens on premises. Post-meal you’ll retire to a room that’s big and comfortable, California-rustic in style, with a king bed, a stone fireplace and heated bathroom floors. The rooms are big and plush enough, but the suites and cottages, in addition to some extra space, add private hot tubs on outdoor patios.

Though it lacks for little in the way of thoughtful luxury, what’s probably most remarkable about San Ysidro Ranch is the understatedness of it all — in Southern California this low-key, discreet atmosphere is the absolute height of desirability. You may well see some familiar faces, but you can count on the staff to keep a secret. Sure, we dropped some big names in the first paragraph, but it took decades for those to get out — and if you’re not quite on JFK’s level, celebrity-wise, you can count on the better part of a century’s worth of discretion.

How to get there:

San Ysidro Ranch is approximately a 15 minute drive from Santa Barbara Municipal Airport and 1 1/2 hours north of Los Angeles.
