We invite you to celebrate the new year, new decade with a visit to The Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort, located in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley and renowned Santa Barbara County wine country.
Vacation Packages & Specials
This special offer includes the following activities: horseback riding, golf, tennis and fishing on Alisal Lake. This is an authentic California ranch experience, complete with nearly every outdoor activity you can imagine, warm and helpful service, and the kind of brilliant, starry skies that only 10,000 acres can offer.
This 3-day event is The Alisal’s contribution to the Santa Barbara Culinary Experience — a weekend-long food and drink extravaganza of education, tasting, and toasting. The highlight of the “Ultimate After Party” will be a gourmet dinner and social, featuring Alisal’s Executive Chef, Anthony Endy, and Los Angeles celebrity chef, Ludo Lefebvre, who has been named one of the “World’s 50 Greatest Chefs” by Relais & Chateaux. The chefs will preside over an extravagant feast of deliciousness that is French-inspired and California Central Coast produced.
The Unbridled Retreat™ is a profound, life-changing experience that leads you to immediate and positive change. Share moments – with horses and women – that will transform the way you see yourself, reveal pathways you didn’t know existed, and help you become your most courageous, authentic self. No horse experience is necessary.
Our most popular mid-week package offers something for everyone! On stays Sunday through Thursday nights, with a two-night minimum, the Round-Up Vacation Package includes golf green fees, scheduled horseback rides, tennis court fees and fishing at our lake for two designated people per room.
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.
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.
We are proud to be the Bird Golf Academy’s partner for their Santa Barbara Golf schools. Bird Golf is universally acclaimed as one of the finest golf schools in the world (Bird Golf was named by Men’s Journal as the best “Men’s Skills Camp” for golf). They teach exclusively in their trademark format of one or two student(s) to one instructor.
