A Picture-Perfect Place to Stay in the Heart of the Santa Ynez Valley

If a photo’s worth a thousand words, then Sideways Inn must be worth a whole library. From the first time you walk into our windmill lobby to the last sip of your nightcap at Sideways Lounge, you’ll find more photo opportunities than you ever fathomed. Like personal portraits at the pool. And group shots in front of giant murals. And candid family photos around the fire pit. We’ve strategically designed our grounds to provide charm around every corner and beauty from every angle. Because when you’re located in a place as picturesque as the Santa Ynez Valley, it takes a lot of work to stand out.

Here, acres of award-winning vineyards wrap themselves around one-of-a-kind attractions. You can stop to feed a hundred ostriches just down the road. Or pick up a delectable Danish pastry from a city that looks like it was airdropped from Denmark. So if you find photos to be some of your favorite souvenirs, then you’re sure to get a whole lot out of your trip to Sideways Inn.
