Picture yourself riding off into the sunset of our 10,000 acre working cattle and guest ranch, sipping wine while soaking up stunning horse-country vistas or simply indulging in a little R&R with the Trail Blazer treatment at our tranquil Spa at the Alisal. This latest edition to an incredible lineup of packages offers the ultimate ranch adventure.
Our most popular package offers something for everyone! On stays of two or more consecutive nights the Round-Up Vacation includes green fees, horseback rides, tennis and fishing at our lake for two designated people per room.
The Alisal Horseback Riding Package is for guests who want to hit the trails for an unforgettable riding opportunity. Enjoy the rolling hillsides and shaded canyons as you ride past grazing cattle and beneath soaring eagles. With over 50 miles of trails and a string of 100 horses we can accommodate first-time to advanced riders in small groups to allow for personal attention by our experienced wranglers.
If you love playing golf, dining on outstanding cuisine and enjoying endless ways to unplug and unwind, there is no better place than the Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort to plan a golf get-a-way trip. On select dates you can fill your days with unlimited golf on the secluded, private Alisal Ranch Course or the scenic River Course at the Alisal.
The BBQ Bootcamp morning sessions will cover all the aspects of BBQ from the best way to start a fire to what to do with spice rubs; afternoons are free for horseback riding, golf or a visit to the spa; and evenings give you a chance to interact with local guest chefs and winemakers who will be on hand to create feasts designed to further fire-up your grilling passions.
Alisal is surrounded by diverse country roads and scenic vistas, making it one of the most sought after cycling destinations in the world. With prime cycling conditions, some of the world’s top cyclists flock to the valley to train throughout the year. Your Professional Guide has developed a program of cycling tours where you can experience the varied terrain of the Santa Ynez Valley firsthand.
Some come to snuggle up by the glow of a crackling fire, sipping chilled champagne and nibbling chocolate-covered strawberries. To others the Alisal offers a rare opportunity to glide quietly in a canoe across a serene mountain lake or to take a leisurely horseback ride to a secluded valley shaded by majestic oaks. For the sports minded romantic, there are plenty of chances to score points on the tennis courts or play either of our two golf courses.
