Tucked away on a 955-acre ranch filled with grassy fields, tree-covered hills, hiking trails, sycamores, valley oaks, pomegranate trees, and cacti, this cabin is located in Gaviota, California and provides the opportunity to go on the glamping retreat of a lifetime. The site itself provides an abundance of the natural landscape to explore, and there is even more of the great outdoors to explore nearby. Right down the road, guests will find Gaviota State Park—2,787 acres of wilderness along the Pacific coast, filled with hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails (not to mention mountain lions; guests should take caution here). Only 10 to 20 minutes away, they will also find a number of beaches, such Gaviota Beach, Refugio State Beach, Goleta Beach, and El Capitan Beach State Park.

Zooming out to the broader Santa Ynez Valley, guests will find a picturesque countyside composed of rolling hills, verdant pastures, lush vineyards, and the rugged peaks of the Santa Ynez Mountains to the south and the San Rafael Mountains to the north. Nestled deep inside Santa Barbara County’s wine country, the area abounds with wineries and wine tasting rooms, along with many fine-dining restaurants that take full advantage of the locally cultivated wines and produce. Nearby, Los Padres National Forrest offers nearly two million acres of woodlands and hiking trails, while Lake Cachuma provides ample opportunities for water sports.

In the Santa Ynez Valley, guests will also find a number of antique stores, art galleries, and other tourist attractions in the nearby towns of Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, and Solvang. Among these attractions are many fruit and vegetable stands selling locally grown produce—but guests will not have to go far to find one, as there is a blueberry farm right on the ranch!

The location is about 20 minutes from Solvang; 30 minutes from Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, and Santa Barbara; two hours from Los Angeles; and five hours from San Francisco.

In addition to grapes, a variety of crops, apples, and olives are grown in the region, and guests can purchase the local produce from roadside fruit and vegetable stands, including the blueberry stand right on the ranch.

Guests seeking outdoor recreation will not be disappointed. They can go hiking, biking, and horseback riding at Gaviota State Park, as well as hiking at Los Padres National Forest and kayaking, canoeing, fishing, cruising, and bald eagle watching at Lake Cachuma. The area also contains many opportunities for shopping at antique stores, perusing art galleries, and visiting tourist attractions, such as the Danish Village in Solvang.

At the cabin site itself, guests can practice yoga at the private yoga studio, play bocce ball, fire up the grill, dine on the patio, gather around the fire pit, and explore the hiking trails.
