Totally agree -- Ballard Inn is lovely. Also, the Santa Ynez Inn. Here's a link to a travelzoo deal for it: http://www.travelzoo.com/local-deals/California-Central-Coast/Getaway/97041?

I thought Fess Parker had a nice Inn in Los Olivos? Either that or the Ballard Inn.

Ballard Inn would be my first choice. In the evening, enjoy a glass of wine on the porch before having a delicious dinner in the restaurant. Fess Parker's Wine Country Inn in Los Olivos is nice; restaurant in the inn is Petros (same Greek restaurant as in SB). Both inns are not cheap, but if you're looking for a special stay in SYV, they are my recommendations.

Try Santa Ynez Valley Vacation Rentals. There are beautiful homes and guesthouses located in Santa Ynez and Los Olivos available on their website.

Ballard Inn for capturing the essence of country life in places like Los Olivos and Ballard and far less "big city" compared to Fess Parker's/Winchester or the sleazy Chumash Hotel and gambling casino/dope den. I will be anticipating the full reconstruction of Mattei's Inn and Tavern in the future.

You can tent camp at the rv place in Buellton.

You can rent a tent at the Lake Cachuma campground next to the dry ground that used to be a lake. Now that there isn't any water, it's okay to go swimming.
