    We loved the grounds most of all. it's like a little oasis in the middle of Santa Barbara. Breakfast was great, too! We loved our little cottage. Reminded me of Carmel. Charming and cozy. Nice location.

    We enjoyed a great stay here. The house and gardens are beautiful, the location is ideal (just a few blocks away from center of town with lots of restaurants and evening fun), and the staff was terrific! Quite pricey, but a lovely get away.
