San Ysidro Ranch

98 Editor Rating*
Scale of 90-100

Sophisticated 500-acre cottage-style resort in the leafy foothills of Montecito, just outside Santa Barbara. Landscaped grounds contain 41 handsome lodgings in peaked-roof cottages, many with generous sitting areas, baths with radiant-heat floors, working fireplaces or stoves, polished oak floors and private patios; some have hot tubs and outdoor rainfall showers. Creekside cottages are very special, along with premium cottages such as Kennedy and romantic Gardenia. Dining venues include the award-winning Stonehouse restaurant and Plow & Angel bistro. Among the amenities are a heated outdoor hillside pool, more than 17 miles of hiking trails, a fitness studio and a Valmont spa. Parts of the resort are still closed after damage caused by mudslides in 2018.
