Make new friends in Santa Barbara Wine Country. Two couples opened this Santa Ynez bed and breakfast so they could enjoy wine and good food with happy, fun people every day. There are a total of seven luxurious guests rooms, five are located in the main house and two are private buildings located next to the floral Wine Garden. Enjoy outdoor romance with a private balcony or patio. The immaculate bathrooms feature a two-person soaking tub, Jacuzzi, or a large walk-in glass shower for two. Spend a unique getaway in the converted two-floor water tower suite with a king-size bed, river rock fireplace, and game table; or snuggle in complete privacy in the cozy cottage. Start the day with a delectable three-course homemade breakfast. Located in town, it's easy to walk to tasting rooms, restaurants, and entertainment, but also from the inn you can enjoy live music during the weekend happy hours located in the Wine Garden or cozy front room with fireplace. Guests receive a Friendship Pass offering over $300 in complimentary wine tastings at local vineyards and free appetizers or desserts at nearby restaurants.

Reservation/Cancellation Policies:

Minimum Stay Requirements

We do require multi-night stays during certain times of the year. Weekends, Holidays and special events generally have multiple night stay requirements. Nonetheless, please call or check our availability online, since one-night stays are occasionally available.

Children Restrictions

Per the CA state code: "When minors are traveling with adults, we require each adult to agree, in writing prior to the stay, not to leave any minor 12 years of age or younger unattended at any time during their stay, and to control the minors' behavior during their stay so as to preserve the peace and quiet of our other guests and to prevent any injury to any person and damage to any property (Civil Code Section 1865(d)). Refusal to sign such an agreement is grounds for refusing accommodations, and any failure to otherwise comply with this policy can result in eviction, with no refund of any money paid or owning in connection with the stay/reservation. Additionally, persons under 21 years of age are restricted from all common areas where alcohol is being served/consumed." Note: When planning travel with minors and booking online or over the phone, we will email you this agreement to be signed and returned prior to your stay. This means one or more parent/guardian will most likely be unable to attend our Happy Hours during the stay.


Cancelations: As a small inn dealing almost exclusively with advance reservations, date changes and cancelations affect us significantly - especially those made during special events and holidays. If you find it necessary to cancel, please call by 3:00 p.m. fourteen (14) days before your scheduled arrival date and your credit card will be refunded your deposit less a $35 service charge. If canceling after 3:00 p.m. within fourteen (14) days of your stay, the remainder of your balance is collected and the room nights will be opened for rebooking. You will be refunded monies received for any new reservation(s), less a $35 service fee. A shortening of your stay is also deemed as a cancelation. Note: Single room reservations of six nights or longer should refer to the Groups/Extended Stays policy. Groups/Extended Stays/Vacation Rentals: Reservations requiring six or more room nights - whether booked as a whole group or individually - have a 30-day cancelation policy and require a fifty percent (50%) deposit upon booking. The remainder of the balance will be collected 30 days prior to check-in. If canceling before 3:00 p.m 30 days prior to the check-in date, 25% of the deposit will be retained. If canceling after the balance has been collected, the room nights will be opened for rebooking. If the entire inn is rebooked for the same amount of time as your stay, you will be refunded monies received for any new reservation(s), less a $200 service fee. A shortening of your stay is also deemed as a cancelation.

The first day of unexpected gift to find the Edison Street Inn. Warmth and friendly welcome greeted us...comfort and repose surrounded us in Paladin's Suite. Memories of other times when cowboys were the heroes. Now, we play the role of escapees from LA, going back in time and beginning to find the peace and rest so often lacking.
