The Victorian Mansion is all about providing its guests with a memorable experience, whether it be a romantic getaway, the celebration of a special occasion, or a unique night’s accommodation while visiting the Santa Ynez wine country.
The Victorian Mansion was built in 1864 and moved to its present location in 1980. Over 200 expert craftsmen, artisans, and artists spent almost 10 years creating the 6 theme suites inside. Hidden bathrooms, spiral staircases, a cannon coffee table, an Egyptian sarcophagus, a chariot, and a 1956 Cadillac convertible are just a few of the curiosities you'll find inside. Each of the 6 theme suites includes hand-painted murals and tiles, a romantic hot tub for two, a fireplace, a DVD player with classic films of the era, and a complimentary breakfast which will appear magically in the morning through your own private food butler.
The Victorian Mansion is perfectly situated in the Santa Ynez wine country – a destination made popular by the acclaimed film “Sideways”. Right off the 101 freeway, Los Alamos is a natural stop on the way to see Hearst Castle or on the road to San Francisco. It is also a short romantic drive from Santa Barbara or Los Angeles.
