This fabulous little gem of a hotel is under new management. I was there three years ago, and it was getting a little worn. But it's being redone from top to bottom. While some of the new rooms are not yet complete, our room was wonderful. New furnishings, woodburning fireplace nice bath. And a well trained attentive staff eager to please. ( I understand every room on the property has been redone.)
The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe is a perfect getaway spot for people from LA or even San Diego. It's close to everything in the San Diego area. And guests even have access to play at Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club. I'm not a golfer, but it's supposed to be a beautiful course.
Some fabulous wineries nearby make for a great daytrip. I was happy to just hang out with a book and enjoy the peace and quiet of the place.
