French charm in Santa Barbara!
We love staying here and always have a wonderful time! Dominique is such a lovely innkeeper, and she makes delicious breakfast, offers wines for the evening, and makes brownies and GLORIOUS cider before bed! She’s accommodating, helpful, and really made our stay special! We will be back!

Can't wait to visit agaim.
The place it's amazingly peaceful, beautiful and inviting. The bed was a bit noisy, but the overall experience was so great the bed issue it's not important at all. The breakfast provided was delicious and provided with such care it makes you feel as it was made just for you.
