Springtime Renewal in Santa Barbara
It’s springtime in Santa Barbara, the season of renewal. After this winter’s double-devastation of the Thomas fire and the subsequent mudslides, there’s no better time to visit Santa Barbara and support the recovery.
Santa Barbara remains the crown jewel amid the glitter of Southern California’s sun-drenched coastline. Nestled between the ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains, the city is a stunningly beautiful enclave that combines Spanish Colonial architecture with palm-lined beaches, a Mediterranean climate, and a laid-back California vibe. World-class shops, restaurants and wines round-out the destination’s idyllic offerings.
Below are four fabulous picks for unique and locally-owned inns to visit in Santa Barbara. Three of the four are offering great discounts through March 31, 2018 with the region’s “Revive and Thrive” promotion.
The Eagle Inn
With its red-tile roof, white-washed adobe walls, hand-carved wooden doors, and hand-painted tiles, The Eagle Inn is classic example of Santa Barbara’s Spanish-Colonial architecture and an enchanting retreat near the beach. Located in the popular West Beach neighborhood, the family-owned inn is just couple blocks from the marina and the palm-lined path along the beach. It’s also within walking distance of Stearn’s Wharf, State Street, and the Funk Zone, which is a converted warehouse district that now houses galleries, boutiques, tasting rooms, breweries, and some of the city’s hippest restaurants.
The inn offers well-appointed guest rooms with luxurious tiled baths and every imaginable amenity. The rooms are decorated with warm red and orange accent colors and have been newly furnished with hard-carved wooden beds, dressers, and nightstands that were made by artisans in Mexico. Some of the rooms feature gas fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, and private balconies or verandas. The inn’s romantic, freestanding casitas (little houses) offer all of the amenities of the guest rooms plus private entrances and a greater sense of seclusion.
A complimentary breakfast is served each morning in the breakfast room and offers a handful of cooked-to-order options–plus yogurt with homemade granola and strawberries–and is served with fresh fruit, coffee, tea, and juice. Freshly-baked cookies are served each afternoon. The inn also offers complimentary bike rentals and free parking.
In conjunction with Visit Santa Barbara’s Revive and Thrive promotion, the inn is offering a 20% discount on its casita rooms through March 31, 2018. A two-night stay is required on weekends. To redeem the offer, use the promo code “Revive” when booking online or call 805-965-3586.
