Alisal - In the Heart of Santa Barbara Wine Country

The incomparable natural setting of Alisal Guest Ranch summons your spirit of adventure.

Fifty miles of riding trails beckon, promising scenic canyons and shaded meadows full of wildlife. The tranquil waters of a hundred-acre spring-fed lake invite both the early morning angler and the afternoon sailing party while the pool provides a cool spot to swim or lounge all day long.

Golf Ranch CourseFor golf enthusiasts, Alisal ranks among the best. Golfers will be challenged by two 18-hole championship courses, Ranch Course and River Course, each with a distinctive personality and a terrain uniquely its own.

Or explore Alisal's 10,000 acres from the back of a horse. Ride through canyons, shaded hillsides, grazing cattle and babbling brooks. Our string of 100 horses can accommodate first-time to advanced riders.
