Love the Ballard Inn. Stayed there on our honeymoon 8 years ago and now for our delayed anniversary trip. Wonderful rooms, super friendly staff and great surroundings. Dinner was very good (although with a limited menu). Very romantic setting - a great getaway and near wonderful Los Olivos and Solvang.

We were two senior couples on a mid-week holiday using TravelZoo vouchers. Beautifully furnished and maintained Inn with lots of comfy places to curl up and read a book or just relax in front of the big fireplace. We were in the first floor Wildflower Room with big overstuffed bedding/pillows, a fireplace (burns real wood!), and beautiful antique furniture. Not...

My husband and I have stayed at Ballard Inn maybe 3 times since 2010 when I wrote my first review. We found our most recent stay to be consistently excellent as our first! We arrived at the tail end of happy hour. A wide assortment of fresh fruit, vegetables, cheeses, crackers, guacamole with chips was available in addition to different...

This Bed and Breakfast with its resturant is close to all of the Santa Barbara Santa Ynez Valley wineries and is an outstanding way to rest and relax between trips througout the Valley. Early morning walks around the small 'town' of Ballard are great too. For an outstanding couples getaway this is it, whether it be for a weekend, anniversary...

Such a nice property for a relaxing weekend! The staff could not be nicer - everyone we met was great. The included breakfast is an impressive surprise. This is a clean, quiet, special occasion location.

On a recommendation, my wife and I were able to get a last minute dinner reservation and were completely spolied by the amazing service and fantastic location. The wine list is excellent and we enjoyed a very reasonable bottle of Chardonnay from Alma Rosa. My wife had the steak and I enjoyed the duck. Both meats were amazing and well...

We first stayed at the Ballard Inn about seven years ago and loved it. If anything it has improved over the years. A very warm welcome, help with our cases into our delightful, spacious room, late afternoon wine and snacks (complimentary) taken relaxing on the porch. Chef/owner Budi Kazali prepares what he calls "French/Asian fusion" cuisine. Whatever he wants to...

My husband and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary and really enjoyed our stay in the Wildflower room. The appetizer hour was amazing with a lovely selection and Bridlewood Vineyards were there pouring their wines for tastings! The wood burning fireplace was so cozy after coming in late from the outdoor theater in town. Loved the turn/down service and homemade...
