Our stay at the Jameson Retreat was definitely the first of many

My family and I had a splendid two month stay at the retreat. It was heavenly. The house is lovely and fully equipped. Beautifully furnished, comfortable and practical at the same time. The front and back yards are out of this world! Having a walk every morning g in that lavish garden was just breathtaking. Truly the grounds of this estate are worth every dime! I would stay there again anytime. The location is perfect. I really can't wait to go there again.

I wanted to write a letter and thank you and the owners of the Jameson Retreat for the wonderful hospitality and stay we had last weekend. We were extremely impressed with how well equipped and beautifully prepped the house was. Each bedroom and bathroom provided every amenity we could ask for. The home’s privacy, open floorplan, and incredibly manicured lawn was an oasis. There wasn’t a single thing we needed that wasn’t provided. The property itself was breathtaking and my children absolutely loved playing in the backyard. The retreat was a perfect place to call home for a long weekend and we certainly hope to visit the Jameson Retreat again. Thank you for the opportunity.

  • Making wood-fired pizzas with the kids using fresh ingredients bought locally in Montecito.
