This romantic hideaway in Montecito's foothills overlooking the Pacific is a beloved wedding and anniversary destination for good reason. The Ranch's magical grounds are flawlessly landscaped and manicured, and you need only read a list of iconic past guests to believe the long-lived hype— ohn and Jackie Kennedy honeymooned here in 1953, and Vivien Leigh exchanged vows with Sir Laurence Olivier at midnight in the rose garden. Guests adopt a leisurely country lifestyle while cozying up in rustic cottages with hand-picked antiques, warmed tile floors and private patios (some complete with outdoor rainfall showers and sunken hot tubs) as well as modern amenities like flatscreen TVs. In keeping with the historic ambience, two popular hotel restaurants provide high-quality, old-fashioned dishes (think steaks and Baked Alaska). Many of the cottages are also dog-friendly, with pet massages available for your furry friend alongside your own in-room spa treatment.
