Enjoy a Farm Stay at Rancho Olivos

Farm stays are well known around the world but not so for many Americans. It’s about the rural experience and putting a personal face and story to farming.While farmers markets bring fresh food to the city, farm stays invite guests to stay overnight in the country and experience the lifestyle - for a night, for a weekend, or more.

Unique, peaceful, rustic one bedroom & bath in wood-framed guest house on 20 acre olive ranch in the beautiful countryside of Santa Ynez Valley. Cute furry dogs & cats to keep you company. Quiet and relaxing, lovely views.  Near Los Olivos, wineries, vineyards. Price includes cleaning fee and 12% bed tax, no additional fees. 

*Please note we are normally booked a month in advance on weekends.*

This Non-smoking cozy one bedroom section of the guest house has its own private entrance, super comfortable king bed, ensuite full bath, with a lovely view of the olive orchard. This is the only bedroom in the guest house - all to yourselves. You are welcome to a complimentary olive oil tasting during normal business hours.

The king bed is one of the most comfortable beds you will ever sleep on! The bathroom is a full bath with a large tub and has its own hot water heater. The space has a mini refrigerator. The guest house is well shaded, there is both a front and back patio.  There is an office adjacent to the bedroom that is used occasionally during the day, and sometimes for harp practice in the evening.

Property is a 20 acre ranch. We have 4 dogs and 2 cats (plus chickens and horses). The animals are not allowed in the room. Because of all our pets, we unfortunately cannot accommodate other pets, as we do not want to have any animal mishaps. The cottage is well shaded with large oaks. You have your own patio in the front of the cottage, and access to shared space. Dogs and cats do share the outdoor space and love visitors. Ladies, be advised that high heels are “not” recommended around the ranch. Nothing is paved, so having some comfortable walking shoes will make your experience much more pleasant. 


The days can be warm but the nights are usually cool, in the 40-50 degree range winter and 50 degree range in the summer. Our place is usually quiet with little traffic or other noise. The view of the olive grove in front of the guest house is very relaxing. Our property is across the street from a winery and in close proximity to the towns of Los Olivos and Santa Ynez. We are relatively close to town but not in town. There is a vineyard and winery across the street. You do need a car to access the towns in our valley - unless you like to ride your bike a fair distance. The neighborhood is mostly ranches and vineyards on large parcels, with ours having the most (olive) trees.

This is a working ranch, so there is usually some activity going on, but not normally near the guest house. There is plenty of birdsong in the morning. Guests are able to wander through the orchard, explore around the farm and check out the fabulous view from the top of our hill. We also have horses on the property. Dogs often act as furry guides if you are exploring the property. There is a great view of the valley, if you choose to hike up to the top of the hill, at the back of the ranch.

We are happy to recommend restaurants and wineries, museums and galleries, and also give directions for different activities. Other than that we give our visitors their space. Owners live on property and are available to solve any issues that may arise.
