The neighbourhood

Ballard was the first town settled in the Santa Ynez Valley in the the late 1800's. The little red schoolhouse was built in 1882 and has been in continuous use ever since. The Ballard Suite Spot is extremely convenient to the Ballard Inn and The Loper Chapel - an historic landmark that is a much sought-after location for Weddings.

Getting around

Public transit is within 2 blocks, however,biking is the preferred method of getting around the Valley. And, there are many nice walks right from our location. Most of the towns in the Valley are from 3 to 6 miles from one another. For bikers who prefer longer rides, there are no shortage of scenic routes in excess of 25-50 miles or more.

Meagan place is such a beautiful cottage and all the amenities you can think of. She is very thoughtful welcoming us with a basket of fruits and a bottle of wine. Her place is really easy to find and so close to Santa Ynez, Los Olivos and Solvang. Definitely will be back.

My wife and I have stayed at the Ballard Suite Spot before and plan on staying again! It is the perfect home base for a weekend of wine tasting. Centrally located, cozy, great hosts; what more can I say? Meagan even provided some gourmet coffee and a complimentary bottle of wine to enjoy on the tranquil little patio. It was perfect. Hope to be back again next year.

We had a wonderful stay in the Santa Ynez Valley. Meagan had thought of everything. Plenty of amenities and beautiful decor inside, even a bottle of wine! Roomy too. The place is equidistant from Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, and Solvang, all of which are worth visiting. She had great recommendations for wining, dining, and hiking nearby.
