The Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort

Just 40 miles from Santa Barbara in the middle of wine country, The Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort is not as remote as many other ranches on our list. But it offers plenty of wide-open range on which to roam: 10,000 acres of grazing fields, hills and canyons. This working cattle ranch dates back to the early 1800s and has been welcoming guests since 1946. It was once the home of Kentucky Derby winner Flying Ebony, and it keeps 100 horses for resort use. Private lessons are offered, as well as team sorting competitions at the weekly summer rodeos. When not in the saddle, guests can enjoy championship golf on two 18-hole courses, spa treatments, guided cycling excursions, tennis, bass fishing and wine tasting.
