About
Santa Ynez

Founded in 1882, the western township of Santa Ynez is situated just one mile from the historic San Marcos Pass stagecoach route over the Santa Ynez Mountains between Santa Barbara and Los Olivos. Just as in 1882, the town provides services to the surrounding ranches and farms, as well as to visitors of the region. The town’s turn-of-the-20th-century western false-front architecture boasts a surprising variety of shops, services, restaurants, and accommodations, benefiting both residents and visitors alike.
