I absolutely love the Ballard Inn. Charming quaint place.

Rooms are always clean. The location is quiet and peaceful and the restaurant is unbelievable.

They have a guy they use for taxi service into and home from town that is very personable

I look forward to our next annual trip back!

Room Tip: I have stayed in the wild flower and the Fiesta are both were great rooms. The Fiesta room was a bit larger

My room, which I shared with a friend, was large and airy. The decor was Victorian.The bathroom and shower were fine with plenty of hot water and water pressure. The staff was quite helpful. The inn is quiet and has two areas to sit and read. Cell phone coverage is very spotty but they have great wifi. Early March was a bit chilly and the common rooms cool to cold. But there are several fireplaces. The heater and air conditioning worked fine. There are many vineyard tasting room near by and Solvang is about 6 miles away.

I use to love his place for a special occasion meal. However, I have been back for over 5 years. I read about the redecoration of the dining room and the new menu.
We went there on Saturday night and it was fantastic. The room reminded me of a New England Inn and the food was suburb. The four of us shared about 8 dishes and all were excellent. The fanny bay oysters were fresh and reasonably priced. The salad and pork belly dishes had a great range of flavors. The wine list is not extensive but very well thought out, with prices reasonable for all choices. Nice job. We will be back, and I hope soon.

This B&B was so enjoyable. You need to have at least two days and nights minimum to fully enjoy the surroundings. Hotel decor is very inviting. Restaurant for breakfast is delicious. There are very good restaurants close by. There are various vineyards to occupy your time.
Will certainly go back again. Staff is very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Ask staff for recommendations on vineyards to visit.. There are some that might give a private tour
