Fodor's Review

Set among orchards and vineyards in the tiny town of Ballard, 2 miles south of Los Olivos, this inn makes an elegant wine-country escape. Rooms are furnished with antiques and original art. Seven rooms have wood-burning fireplaces; the inn provides room phones and TVs on request. The tasting room serves boutique wines on weekends. At the Ballard Inn Restaurant ($$$), which serves dinner from Wednesday through Sunday, owner-chef Budi Kazali creates sumptuous French–Asian dishes in a romantic dining room.
