Myth and history meet at San Ysidro Ranch. Tucked in the sun-drenched hills of Montecito, this exclusivity-defining resort draws a celebrity guest list with its blend of natural beauty, romantic heritage (this is where John and Jackie Kennedy honeymooned), and classic luxury. Strolling the lush gardens, it's easy to see why Vivian Leigh and Sir Lawrence Olivier chose to exchange wedding vows here. Even just one night at the alluring Santa Barbara property (once a citrus ranch) is the stuff of love sonnets.
Now through September 6, you can experience your own legendary liason, if only for a night. The one-night, all-inclusive package at a special promotional rate includes champagne and chocolate covered truffles upon arrival, an American breakfast for two served in your cottage (or, if you prefer, on your private outdoor patio), an afternoon wine tasting around the enchanting lily pond, dinner for two at the fabulous onsite Steonhouse Restaurant, and a parting gift. (Package available Sunday-Thursday .) San Ysidro Ranch, 900 San Ysidro Lane, Montecito, 805.565.1700
