San Ysidro Ranch

After a three-year, $150 million renovation, San Ysidro Ranch remains entrenched in both town and country, as a hike from the 114-year-old Montecito, California, resort attests. The Ranch is bordered by the mountains to the east, the Pacific Ocean to the west, and the estates of Montecito and Santa Barbara to the north. Cottages and suites feature four-poster beds covered in French quilts and PRatesi linens, and outdoor patios with rain showers and hot tubs. Accommodations Most of the 40 rebuilt guest cottages and suites feature living areas with LG plasma HDTVs, stone fireplaces, and bathrooms with Kohler soaking tubs and radiant-heated floors. Recreation Both you and your pet can have an in-room spa treatment. Dining Dishes at the Stonehouse are prepared with vegetables and herbs harvested from the on-site garden. Worthy Diversion Work off your indulgent day spent at a local winery with a sunset hike along the San Ysidro Trail, where you’ll find an 80-foot waterfall at the top of the canyon. Rates $2,990 will give you access to the Kennedy Cottage—named for John and Jackie Kennedy, who honeymooned here in 1953—which consists of two master bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a deck with an ocean view.
