Santa ynez valley stay

2 couples in their 50's flying into LAX and driving to the Santa Ynez Valley. We love to search out great restaurants and visit unique wineries. There are several towns we are checking out for lodging: Los Olivos, Santa Ynez, Solvang. We are thinking of staying mid March from a Sunday to a Friday or Saturday. Any comments on lodging, wineries, restaurants and golfing would be greatly appreciated. As far as lodging goes, we are looking for something around $400 - $600 / nt with 2 Bedrooms and 2 Baths (preferably Kings).

We usually stayed at the Marriott in Buellton which was remodeled a year or so ago. A king or queen room with balcony starts at $149 plus tax for a Sunday night. So two rooms would be within your budget. However it sounds like you might be looking for a vacation rental, cannot tell for sure from your post.
For food, Hitching Post is always a safe bet, and Jocko's in Nipomo is also good, and we used to like Matteo's in Los Olivos but looks like they changed owners or managers and the menu has weird stuff on it now.

Be sure and have lunch/dinner at Coldspring Tavern, located on a tight turn on lower road up from Santa Barbara. A former stagecoach stop, and genuinely western (but with modern prices).

You’ll be able to find a good rental house for that amount, I think. Otherwise, check the santa ynez inn or for friends Inn in santa ynez. The Marriott is ok but not within walking distance of anything.

For restaurants, the Hitching Post in Buellton or Casmalia, Leonardo’s, SY Kitchen, Trattoria Grappolo, the Red Barn... all delicious! No shortage of places to eat!!
