This is a private ranch with views of the Santa Ynez Valley, winery's all around you. This spot is on the highest spot of our 20 acre historical equine center. The ranch was part of a 600 acre dairy ranch long ago, the original ranch house still stands and has been beautifully maintained by our neighbors. Walking around the ranch you can visit with our farm friendly animals. Horses, mini horses, cows, goats, chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys. There is a table and chairs with an umbrella with solar lights that you may use. There are no open fires but you can rent our propane fire pit for $25.00. The site is incredible it give you the feeling of freedom which is something we need in these troubled times.

Beautiful quiet, private location next to vineyards, rolling hills and pastures. Angela was very welcoming. Rode our e-bikes to Solvang along the Dan Henry bike trail, passing multiple farms, wineries, vineyards; such beautiful surroundings.

Incredible star gazing!Beautiful rolling hills at sunset.Surrounding area.Beautiful sunset from campsite.

Angela was the perfect hostess! We loved the private vista spot with 360 degree views of rolling hills and mountains! We found it so peaceful and serene. Such a perfect spot if you want to rest and relax. Big thanks to Angela and her warm hospitality!!!

Angela's property is spectacular! It sits on top of a ridge that overlooks two vistas east and west. The sunrises and sunsets are not to be believed! Angela is a natural hostess, eager to meet any of your needs. She met us prepared with a gas fire pit, drove us to our sight, set up the propane tank for us and even invited us to a socially distanced new years eve bonfire in her barn. There are sheep, goats, horses, ducks and chickens meandering around the stables, and fresh eggs for you to take. She has big plans to continue improving her set up, and we cant wait to go back and see the progress!

I hesitate to say how cool this place is because once the secret is out it may make it harder for me to book in the future :D

Thanks You Angela for hosting us. Bob and Lori
