“Hidden gem in the wine country”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

This B&B is very picturesque and cozy. Margaret and Kelly really make you feel at home. The breakfast was great. Even the coffee, which is almost never good in a hotel or b&b. Definitely the best value in lodging while staying in the Santa Barbara County wine country. Its just outside of town (Solvang), yet it feels like you are well removed from all that, and nicely tucked away in the countryside. We were in one of the rooms closest to the main road and we heard no traffic noise what so ever. Our only regret was that we were only there for one night. Gotta' get back there soon. Its a little bit of paradise.

We fell in love with Meadow Lark. Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to explore the wine country, other than a quick visit to Solvang but we thoroughly enjoyed our one nights stay and wished we had had much longer to enjoy the tranquility and peace of our room and garden (particularly the hammock and hot tub!). Service was impeccable and we received great recommendations of places to eat and chose The Mirabelle, which was divine. Room was beautiful, clean, spacious yet utterly cosy and warm. We loved every second. Great breakfast too.

Just returned from our 2nd visit to Meadowlark Inn in Solvang. Its close to the wine trail and Los Olivos, and just outside town and down the road from the Chumash Casino. We like the giant oak trees and the fire pit on the grounds, along with the gazebo and picnic tables. And complimentary WiFi. The breakfast is a treat, and our hostess made a cheese and spinach quiche and served it to us. We get up to Solvang several times a year, and Meadowlark Inn is our place to stay.

Room Tip: Actually, there is no room service. All rooms are ground level.

Our stay at Meadowlark Inn in quaint Santa Ynez/Solvang, CA was again like stepping back in time where gardens are there for your pleasure and guests are treated special. Our room was beautiful, the service wonderful. On the days we were not able to be there for their wonderful home made breakfasts, a breakfast basket was brought to our room the evening before, with fresh banana bread, fruit, home made granola. This is where the locals bring their families to stay. Thank you once again for such a pleasant stay.

My husband and I were on a motorcycle trip and wanted to extend our trip to one more day. Called them in spur of moment, They got us in with the most beautiful rooms. They have majestic trees and beautiful roses all around. Had a fire pit(which we used), gazebos, water features all around. Awesome breakfast in the morning was included. We will definitely be back and soon.

Room Tip: Rooms with a outside hot tub or a room with big Jacuzzi tub and sitting room

Just returned from our first trip to the Santa Ynez Valley near Solvang, California and are planning our next trip to the Meadowlark Inn as I write this! Loved everything about this quaint little oasis. The people are helpful, cheerful, and knowledgeable about the area. The rooms are clean and charming. The grounds are well-tended and peaceful. The breakfast (included) is just right and delicious. The location is perfect; close enough to Solvang and the rest of the community to be convenient, but far enough away to relax. One lovely highlight was the wine tour with Brigitte who is expert and passionate about the local wineries; I highly recommend this fun and informative outing. The cherry on top was getting to spend a special day with the legendary Margaret!
