Right in the center of Santa Barbara County’s Santa Ynez Valley, Buellton has lots to offer visitors to the area, from its renowned wineries (many featured in the film, Sideways) to the scenic Los Padres National Forest, there is something for everyone in and around Buellton.
Hotel guests are close by to some fantastic restaurants––visit family-operated Aru for superb Japanese and sushi or Firestone Walker for award-winning pale ales and IPAs. Nearby Los Alamos is home to Full of Life Flatbread’s restaurant, which has a wide selection of local wine to go with your organic pizza and other gourmet fare.
A Buellton hotel room is perfect for touring and tasting at the local wineries, including Lafond Winery and Sanford Winery and Vineyards. Or travel to nearby Solvang, a Danish-themed curiosity of a town, filled with windmills and plenty of outdoor European-styled events. If you’re feeling lucky, stop by the Chumash Casino and try your hand at the slots and tables.
Our Buellton accommodations also provide the perfect base camp for exploring the California desert and woodlands––Los Padres National Forest alone has nearly two million acres of protected forest lands.
