Hidden in the golden hills of California’s Santa Ynez Valley—just 36 miles northeast of Santa Barbara sits the legendary Alisal Ranch. Surrounded by mountains, meandering across 10,500 sweeping acres, this family-owned property has embraced the spirit and nature of the American West for nearly a century. As stewards of the land, the ranch honors its rich heritage by providing authentic western hospitality and luxury ranch living in an experience suited for today’s most savvy travelers. 

You’ll discover the allure and romance of Alisal Ranch from the moment you arrive. Located just 30 minutes north of Santa Barbara, our 10,500 acres are full of open sky and countless adventures. From riding trails and a serene lake, to tennis courts and championship golf courses, we’ve got everything your heart and soul desire. 

If you want to do more exploring while you’re here, our location offers easy access to more than 120 vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley, as well as the charming village of Solvang, known for its Danish heritage and architecture. 

Come and get a taste of quintessential California country, pure in landscape and spirit. Alisal Ranch’s legacy is built on its unspoiled land and the many generations of family and friends who have celebrated and nurtured it.
