La Lomita Ranch is nestled in the heart of Edna Valley and encircled by the majestic Santa Lucia coastal mountain range. This former Arabian horse ranch turned enchanting hacienda-style bed and breakfast is composed of seven suites and a stand-alone house. In recognition of the region’s history, the property is filled with handcrafted Spanish-style furnishings and colorful Saltillo tiles. This style is carried over to the luxurious event spaces—The Pavilion, The Plaza, Oak Courtyard and The Terrace—where customized gatherings can be held overlooking sweeping vineyard and lake views. The crown jewel of the spaces, the newly built Pavilion offers an effortless indoor-outdoor flow beneath a red tile-roofed building reminiscent of a Spanish mission.
