Get Cozy in One of the Best Santa Barbara Bed and Breakfasts

For an intimate family visit or a romantic trip, book a room at one of the many local bed and breakfasts in Santa Barbara. Most are located in the heart of some of Santa Barbara’s most beloved neighborhoods, giving you the opportunity to live like a local for the duration of your stay.

Try a weekend in the West Beach neighborhood of Santa Barbara for sunny days filled with beach volleyball and seaside strolls. This is a very pretty area occupied by relaxed locals and family beach rentals. The Lavender Inn by the Sea is within walking distance of area bars and restaurants.

Experience the other side of our coastline and stay at the Inn at East Beach. This is a fun part of town if you have children in tow; the Santa Barbara Zoo is located here.

Or if peace and quiet is what you’re looking for, book a room – or a whole cottage! – at the Secret Garden Inn. It's close, but not too close, to downtown shopping, dining and attractions.

No matter which area you choose for your stay, you’re sure to fall in love. Don't forget to ask the friendly staff members at these fabulous bed and breakfasts to point you in the direction of all their favorite local hot spots.
