Fantastic hideout in wine and olive county Santa Ynez. Upon arriving at Shannon's, her four dogs and one cat greeted us. They are such a delight and so well behaved! The 1 bedroom guesthouse was very warm on the night that we had stayed over so be careful if you are booking this place during summer! There is no a/c... Overall it was a wonderful experience for us. Thank you, Shannon!
Shannon was a great communicator and easy to connect with. The guest house is cute, clean and as pictured (be advised that the accommodations consist of the right 1/3 of the picture, bed/bathroom only, and the window area is off limits due to owners office). The property and surrounding landscape are beautiful!
we had a lovely time at Shannon's guest house. it's cozy and the setting is quite nice. Scout is the coolest Corgie dog i've ever met.
We had a great time at the ranch. Shannon and John were kind and welcoming, the guest house was quaint and comfortable. The bed was cozy and there was a fan in the room which was great since it was pretty warm outside. The dogs were tons of fun. We came home with delicious peaches and olive oil straight from the farm. There are vineyards within walking distance for wine tasting. I highly recommend this guest house!
I loved staying in the guest house on the olive ranch! Very peaceful and convenient to Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, and Solvang. Hope to stay here again some time.
We really enjoyed staying on the olive ranch! The location and overall feel could not have been better. We biked to town in the morning and were minutes away from the best wineries and vineyards. One of our favorite things to do was walk around the farm at sunset with a glass of wine...so beautiful! Seeing as we joined another wine club this weekend I know we will be back soon! Thank you Shannon!!
My boyfriend and I had such a great time staying at Shannon's. The guest house was comfortable, welcoming and in a great location. We also loved interacting with all of their friendly dogs! Shannon's husband provided us with an olive oil tasting and a bit of history of the wine and olives during our last day. We would definitely recommend this place to others!
We were greeted by the dogs and then by Shannon and shown all around this very nice, working olive ranch. We enjoyed tasting her olive oils, and bought some to bring home. Shannon was most helpful in suggesting places to eat. It is a lovely place, the bed was soft and very comfortable, and, most important for us, was king size. The bathroom is good sized and the bathtub/shower was clean and looked new. Our activities did not run late, so we watched movies from the collection there, and fell asleep to peace and quiet. A lovely, relaxing weekend!
Thanks so much Shannon. The location could not have been more perfect for us and we felt so welcomed and cared for, right at home. Great patio area to sit out and enjoy nature and the farm. Nancy and Christine
We had a wonderful stay at the Olive Ranch. Shannon, John and all the dogs and cats were very welcoming and friendly.
The accommodations were excellent. The bed was really comfortable and everything was very clean.
The ranch is beautiful. We arrived too late at night to enjoy it in the evening but we wished we could have stayed another day.
The area is beautiful and there are great vineyards and fresh fruit and vegetable stands around. Shannon can give you good recommendations. The best part was the olive tasting - you will want to buy several bottles.
