The Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort is located in the heart of Santa Barbara Wine Country. Fifty miles of riding trails beckon, promising scenic canyons and shaded meadows full of wildlife. The tranquil waters of a hundred-acre spring-fed lake invite both the early morning angler and the afternoon sailing party while the pool provides a cool spot to swim or lounge all day long.

For golf enthusiasts, Alisal ranks among the best. Golfers will be challenged by two 18-hole championship courses, Ranch Course and River Course, each with a distinctive personality and a terrain uniquely its own. Or explore Alisal’s 10,000 acres from the back of a horse. Ride through canyons, shaded hillsides, grazing cattle and babbling brooks. Our string of 100 horses can accommodate first-time to advanced riders.

 

The Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort is located in the heart of California’s central coast, 40 miles north of Santa Barbara and just minutes away from the quaint town of Solvang (Danish for “sunny fields”). Take in the charming Danish architecture as you stroll through its 200+ shops and specialty boutiques. You’ll find everything from traditional Danish chocolates and baked goods, to quality European imports and collectibles.

"Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is the change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living."
