Your Ultimate Wine Country Escape…
The Ranch at Canyon Ridge in the heart of the Santa Ynez wine country offers a soothing serenade for visitors who want to slow down and enjoy bountiful country life! The property is centrally located to all surrounding villages, all about a 10-15 minute drive.
Greg and Bernadette came across this scenic site near Solvang, about two and a half hours from Manhattan Beach. The beautiful drive meanders thru green & golden rolling hills, farms dotted with cows & agriculture, past Lake Cachuma and into the Santa Ynez Wine Country, just 30 minutes from Santa Barbara. They knew they had found that special spot centered on their shared vision and what they love. At The Ranch, the most pressing thing is deciding on which picturesque area to choose for a spectacular sunrise or sunset… time seems to stand still at this rural haven.
The Ranch is located just South of Rusack Vineyards off Ballard Canyon Road. On this private & gated 20-acre property with 360 degree views of open country, hillsides and abundant vines, there are three dwellings nestled among majestic ancient oaks.
