Lovely inn nestled in the sleepy town of Ballard nearly midway between Los Olivos and Solvang. The public areas are well appointed (although not in use during COVID other than to walk through to the bathroom. The highpoint, by far is the excellent restaurant. Budi's food is creative, his staff is well trained so the service is first rate. He makes a point of visiting all the tables and chatting about his approach to cooking or whatever becomes the subject. Mixing an Asian flair (Korean, Japanese, Chinese and more) into his cooking along with local ingredients is a formula for a nearly perfect meal. Desserts are also "not-to-miss!!" The only ding (slight) is that the guest rooms could use a little sprucing up. Newer carpeting, refreshed bathrooms in the guest rooms would really make a difference. Beds were comfortable . Each room has a different theme which adds to the charm. Definitely recommended!
