Overview

Tucked away in the peaceful community of Ballard, California, The Ballard Inn & Restaurant effortlessly embodies the adage, "the best things come in small packages." A divine bed & breakfast retreat amongst the idyllic vineyards of Santa Barbara's Wine County, Ballard Inn was recently voted one of America's "Top Ten Most Romantic Inns," and remains an ideal retreat for two. Upon your arrival, enjoy a glass of the region's finest on the inn's wraparound patio surrounded by fragrant foliage, or retreat to the soft color palette of your room. The inn's 15 rooms are elegantly and uniquely designed, with a calming, country theme, and each with its own individual story. Mildred's Room is decorated in soft blues and cream hues, and was named for the original owner's daughter, while the inn's most romantic room, Cynthia's Room, boasts a king sized bed, in-room fireplace, and private bathroom, all bathed in sensuous and soft red tones.
