San Ysidro Ranch Earns Top Honors

Still haven’t booked your spring break getaway? Consider San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, as the iconic luxury resort was just awarded two distinct top honors (and unveiled new cottages).

San Ysidro Ranch (a k a “Hollywood’s hideaway)” was just honored with a distinguished Forbes five-star rating as well as named one of Travel & Leisure’s 2021 Top 500 Hotels in the World. With its luxury 41 vine-covered cottage accommodations, lush 550 acres and award-winning Stonehouse Restaurant and Plow & Angel restaurants, these distinctions come as no surprise to ranch guests.

In a setting that seems to be plucked from Provence, France (the property was originally established as a citrus farm in the early 1800s), guests can enjoy garden walks, yoga with an ocean view, lawn games, pampering treatments, adventurous hiking and picnics. When not dining at Stonehouse Restaurant and Plow & Angel, guests can savor their meals in their cottage by a fire or al fresco in their private garden.

Three new cottages, featuring private backyards and gardens with rain showers and oversized sunken spas, were recently added along the San Ysidro Creek. Accommodations start at $1,295 per night (there are no resort fees).
