Santa Barbara North

When it comes to wine country, closer is better.

Head toward the hills. The stunning Santa Ynez Mountains serve as sort of the de facto border between Santa Barbara’s north and south counties. While the more popular rental choices tend to have visitors gravitating toward the beaches, true oenophiles know the best place to stay for a quick and easy escape. Santa Barbara North is home to some of the area’s most expansive estates, all about a half hour drive to wine country. And we doubt there will be any whining when you choose to vacation here with InvitedHome. Learn More
