Trip to Santa Barbara
The B&B is lovely and very welcoming. The location is perfect for all things downtown Santa Barbara. The breakfast was exceptional as was the afternoon wine hour.My only complaint is the room. The room was tiny. Barely enough room get dressed. The bathroom was also outdated and very, very tiny. We were a bit uncomfortable because of this.

The property was a surprise from the start. Beautiful grounds. We were greeted promptly and checkin took minutes. The room was nice and clean. The amenities included an evening wine hour with hordeurves. The local area had plenty of gtlreat restaurants. We participated in a winery tour that took our first day up. Very enjoyable. We also found an excellent entertainment venue called the Red Piano. We were pleasantly surprised by a show by the local band Dishwalla. It was a great peaceful and romantic get away.
