Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort

Summary of 80 verified reviews


Excellent golf hotel. Fantastic service. Great location.

There are few places in the world where time seems reluctant to move forward. The Alisal Guest Ranch and 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. As California's premier guest ranch, the Alisal transports guests back to a bygone era. Set on a 10,000-acre working cattle ranch, this one-of-a-kind resort blends the best of nature with exceptional golf, horseback riding, tennis, fishing, first-class accommodations and fine dining.
