Hello! AIG Travel Guard (and other brands) has economy travel insurance, which will cover illness cancellations, for about 7%. Please consider being safer in your reservation with this option. Thx, mgmt.

We want your expectations to be satisified! The Estate is not a replacement for expensive suites at the Biltmore Hotel in Montecito. This is a proper comfortable overnight accommodation with parking, a suite with private bathroom ( some with balcony ) and a minimal continental breakfast in a property which is still 'coming back'. The is an opportunity to experience the history, to stay in this neighborhood and have a glimpse at mansion living at a very reasonable cost. The history, the charm and the exquisite Ballroom are there. Floors creak, a cabinet knob may be gone and the grounds cannot really be watered in this arid area, so please expect what we are indicating here.
The continental breakfast is mostly coffee and tea, but there is oatmeal and toast with jams and additions. This offering really helps the European travelers who are use to something to start their day, but for Americans it is not a bed and 'breakfast' as we are familiar with it. Some website categorize us as a bed and breakfast and we did not ask for that category. Thank you, staff.

The Estates suites, the Entry Parlor and the Grand Ballroom are for the use of our guests and others who also live at the mansion. In addition to 3 suites being used as gites ( short stay guest rooms) the estate has other renters and staff living onsite.

Morning coffee, tea, toast with jam choices, packaged cereals and assorted oatmeal will be served in the Entry Parlor. Please note that the continental breakfast was started to accommodate our European visitors. This added offering is limited and mostly consists of your coffee and a snack size something to start your day.

Standing on 1.7 acres in Montecito between the Upper and Lower villages, this 9000 sf 1885 mansion has 9 bedrooms, 11 baths and many decades of local and national history.

The Estate starts with our forward courtyard for your parking, very private and away from the street. You will be met by staff (or signs will be set to guide you to your room), and you will be shown to your room as well as be given a brief tour and description of the common areas.

The grounds consist of the Wicket Walk, the Orleans garden, the River Rock garden and the enclosed central courtyard, all walk-able to guests. (Note: the grounds and the entire SB area are under a severe drought and some areas will remain in transition, remaining under planted and not manicured, until it ends).

Once you enter through the main door and come in to the entry parlor, you will find your room up the main grand stairs on the left. To the right are the steps down to the formal ballroom, which is reserved for the enjoyment of the guests. There you will find several sitting areas to gather in, a TV viewing area by the grand fireplace, a pool table, grand piano and several desk arrangements for our business guests.

NOTE, additional visitors are NOT ALLOWED to come on the property. The Peppers will be for your use and the use of your 1-2 persons declared party alone. The Estate gives an inordinate amount of space to the guests, and within these areas are some fragile architectural elements. The large amount of open space should not be interpreted as room to have additional persons come to the property. ( Thank you, the owners )

Outside there are 4 patio arrangements inserted among the many gardens, including the gazebo, to easily find private spaces.

There are 3 guests rooms in total. Multiple rooms can be booked together and traveling friends or family can easily stay together using several rooms in the same hall.

NOTE: Smoking on a room's private patio is allowed. Some rooms do not have a patio. Although pets are not allowed in these suites, other pets may be present from time to time elsewhere on the property.

Our rooms by name are:

Ojai Room. A large original bedroom and bath with shower, with a private upper patio.

Mediterranean Room. The Master Suite. Large private suite with a sitting area and a huge bath suite with tub, shower, a walk-in closet and a full length upper balcony and patio,

White Room. A great value suite with an extra bedroom off the main room. Both rooms share the sitting area and bath of the main room. Informed another way; the second closable bedroom with another queen bed is accessed by passing through the first bedroom, which has the sitting area and bath to be shared by all.

F.R. Bains bought the estate in 1913 while the President of the Gas Company, to 'winter' away from Los Angeles. One could just ride North from L.A. and stay on paved roads to Montecito in that year. While his wife was adding our famous Ballroom ( architect Julia Morgan of Hearst Castle fame ), she passed unexpectedly and he rented the estate for a time. Dorinda Bliss then rented here while constructing Casa Dorinda up the street, building from the Fletcher's fortune left by her husband. Do you recall Fletcher's Laxative? Our rooms are clean and very comfortable, and each room is the size of a modern living room, built in another era. And all guests have exclusive access to the Ballroom, which has desk areas, TV, a pool table and lovely conversation spots. Envision Paderewski playing piano or Martha Graham dancing by barefoot in front of Julia's first giant fireplace ( ala Citizen Kane). But we are still removing weeds and waiting for agricultural water as the drought has not ended yet. And these $400 rooms are a bargain find for you now before everything is re-plated to perfection. The coffee is good! And we are serious about our toast and many jams to help send you off comfortably every morning to the beautiful Santa Barbara and Montecito city, beaches and countryside.

"On March 9th, 1917. Martha Graham danced barefoot in her first public performance, and Head of State Paderewski preformed deep in to the night in 1920, enchanted by the acoustics of the Ballroom. He was more than his famous composer status at the time, being the President of the new free Poland after WW1. When Ms. Dorinda Bliss rented the Estate in the 1910's, her daughter also bought Dumbarton Oaks with her diplomat husband in Washington D.C. That East Coast Estate became the origin and host of the United Nations, formed after WW2, before their eventual building could be built. Of recent times, in 2004 Ms. Evelyn Keyes of Gone With the Wind fame stayed at the Estate until her passing in 2008, and many celebrities of her era were visitors and companions during those years."

In a local History Article:

"More and more wealthy people, drawn to Santa Barbara when it was in its heyday as a fashionable health resort, began establishing luxurious private estates in Montecito during the 90s. This trickle became a flood after the Potter Hotel opened in 1902, luring such ultra-rich names as Rockefeller, Carnegie, Fleischmann, Cudahy, DuPont, Swift, McCormick, Bliss and others. Many of them fell in love with the area’s incomparable scenery and climate and began developing fabulous estates in suburban Montecito, ranging in size from 30 to 200 acres. The ruling echelons of the millionaire migration were dubbed “The Hill Barons” because their palatial mansions occupied hilltops overlooking Montecito’s beautiful woodlands.

A working-class population to serve the needs of the wealthy increased in Montecito and social patterns began to emerge. The original Hispanic inhabitants kept pretty much to themselves in the shady bosques of Old Spanish Town, where they built two dance halls, a cantina, taverns, and a co-op store known as “La Cooperacion” which was destroyed in the disastrous floods of January, 1914.

The middle-class Americans built two recreation centers in Montecito Village, Montecito Hall in 1897, Montecito Home Club in 1908. A popular social center for the elite was “The Peppers” at 430 Hot Springs Road, built around 1900. Its ballroom, with a balcony to accommodate a large orchestra, was the scene of a piano recital by Paderewski, a vocal concert by Madame Schumann-Heink, and the dancing debut of Santa Barbara’s world-famous Martha Graham."
