San Ysidro Ranch
Luxury unites with rustic beauty at this historic ranch.
This property is more of a retreat than a resort, and it's certainly more luxurious than the term "ranch" implies. Its sprinkling of cottages populate a park-like rural setting on 500 acres tucked into the foothills above Montecito, home to numerous upscale shops and restaurants. It's easy to see why the young, newly-rich-and-famous come here. There's a wonderful country feel to the cottages, which include decks, outdoor hot tubs and wood-burning fireplaces. If you have the big bucks, you can sleep in the two-bedroom cottage where Jackie and JFK honeymooned and where today's Hollywood stars escape to get in touch with nature. Along with peace and quiet, guests will find two tennis courts, a spa, acres of flowering gardens and two superb dining options, Plow & Angel Bistro and Stonehouse Restaurant, the latter of which is located in a nineteenth-century stone building. Having undergone major renovations in 2006, the property is sharper looking and more accessible than ever.
