Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort is the true wine country's favorite getaway. There are few places in the world where time seems reluctant to move forward. The Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort, nestled in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley and the renowned Santa Barbara County wine country, is one such rare retreat. The Alisal has been a hideaway for generations of families, couples, and groups since first welcoming guests in 1946. Today, the romance and majesty of the "old west" remain in the Ranch's wide-open spaces and unspoiled natural beauty.
