Feels like one’s own private Four Seasons, but with cows, goats, and chickens that lay blue and green eggs. Commanding views of the Santa Ynez Valley. Ask the ranch manager, Fidencio, to take you on a llama walk.
The Ranch at Canyon Ridge feels like a secret boutique resort. Bernadette and Greg have done an absolutely incredible job creating this oasis in SB Wine Country. The house itself is extremely comfortable and stylish, balancing smart home conveniences with classic American style that fits the Ranch aesthetic. The beds are all very comfortable, the bathrooms luxurious and clean and the kitchen is fully equipped with every tool you could need (mixer, vitamix, serving platters, bbq tools, etc.).
I had the pleasure of staying here with my husband and two other couples and their <1 year old babies for the fourth of July weekend. We had PLENTY of room and enjoyed every moment on the property. The outdoor area is amazing equipped with a top of the line propane BBQ, TV, comfortable seating, gorgeous pool and hot tub and breath-taking views of the rolling hills. We felt like we were in Tuscany with the large Italian Cyprus trees that surround the pool.
The ranch is also home to adorable llamas, goats and chickens which we enjoyed meeting as well. The ranch manager Fidencio is so kind and led us on a little adventure around the property with the two llamas, Hariett and Mama Llama.
We were welcomed with delicious farm fresh eggs, muffins, butter and homemade cookies. Bernadette and Greg were on the ranch and super quick to answer any questions or address anything that came up. They even helped us to light the Santa Maria BBQ on the 4th so we could use the awesome wood fire for our meal.
I seriously can't wait to return and cannot say enough good things about this experience. All of us keep referring to it as the Secret Ranch and are already plotting when we can get back to visit again.
We had the pleasure of joining our daughter and family for a five night stay. The property is beautiful with expansive views across the valley. We enjoyed all of the animals and being able to interact with them. In fact, we were given a dozen fresh eggs laid by the on-site chickens. I received a wonderful facial from Bernadette, and Greg prepared and lit the cauldron for us. The girls enjoyed roasting marshmallows and we enjoyed the ambiance.
The home is full of beautiful antiques and all of the amenities that you need. We were there when a hundred year old hay wagon was delivered and positioned on the hillside that you can see as you drive up to the house.
Bernadette and Greg are wonderful hosts and I hope to return again one day.
Three adult couples spent a long weekend at The Ranch and we were all so taken with the beautiful property and grounds that we canceled our restaurant reservations two nights in a row to stay in and enjoy the home instead! The grounds, views and Lans aping were magnificent and nothing beats having morning coffee with the goats! Would definitely stay again and can't wait for an excuse to return!

We decided to get away from home this Thanksgiving and we loved the farmhouse. Wonderful outdoor spaces and Bernadette is incredibly gracious. Highly recommend.
