San Ysidro Ranch



Editor Rating
Scale of 90-100

This sophisticated 500-acre cottage-style resort is located in the leafy foothills of Montecito, just outside Santa Barbara. The property’s landscaped grounds encompass 38 handsome lodgings in peaked-roof cottages, many with generous sitting areas, stone fireplaces or stoves, Persian rugs, four-poster beds and private patios (some augmented by hot tubs and rainfall showers). Creekside cottages are exceptional, as are premium cottages such as the romantic Gardenia and the storied Kennedy, where John and Jackie Kennedy stayed during their honeymoon in 1953. Chef Matthew Johnson oversees the two dining venues, an atmospheric bistro and the Stonehouse, set in a 19th-century citrus-packing house, for regional cuisine. Among the amenities are a large 12,000-bottle underground wine cellar, a heated outdoor hillside pool, more than 17 miles of hiking trails, a fitness studio and a spa.
