Welcome to The Inn at Mattei's Tavern

A Central Coast legend reborn

From its earliest incarnation, in 1886 as a popular stagecoach stop during California’s Gold Rush, to its years as a surreptitious hangout through Prohibition, The Inn at Mattei’s Tavern has long held a fabled place in Central Coast lore. Revered and raucously enjoyed for generations, the beloved landmark opens a new chapter in 2021 as the definitive luxury destination in the Santa Ynez Valley.
A Century of Santa Ynez Tradition

Come to explore the region’s award-winning vineyards and admired horse ranches, then unwind in our reimagined guestrooms and cottage-style accommodations nestled among acres of of old-growth palm trees. Dine on the vibrant, seasonal flavors of the region in our open-air restaurant, or take a dip in our outdoor pool, followed by stories and s’mores gathered around a firepit. You’ll feel right at home with our laid-back version of wine country luxury.
