Property Description

West Cottage One & Two

Once a stagecoach stop pioneered by the Swiss-American Felix Mattei during the late 19th century, and a social center frequented by the likes of Bing Crosby and Clark Gable, Mattei’s Tavern is now one of the most familiar historic sites in the Santa Ynez Valley. Its romantic heritage is revealed through the gabled buildings and pastoral surroundings, and its old-world charm is palpable. The property has served as a gathering place, bringing together loved ones and strangers alike, ever since. For over 125 years, The Cottages have provided sanctuary for those seeking the tranquility and adventure of California’s Central Coast.

Nestled in the heart of Santa Barbara wine country, The West Cottages at Mattei’s Tavern provide a jumping off point for walkable tasting rooms and a respite from the everyday hustle. Wander the streets of Los Olivos, sip a glass of wine on your patio, or dine at the best restaurants in town. These accommodations are a reminder to slow down and enjoy life.

Newly renovated and meticulously designed, the historic West Cottages boast bright white walls, stunning wood floors and intricate details throughout. With a total of six bedrooms and four bathrooms between the two cottages, a fully-stocked kitchen and beautiful open floor plans, the West Cottages vaunt endless opportunities for both entertaining and relaxation.

Property Reviews

John and Deborah

“We had a family wedding and booked all of the bungalows at Mattei's the weekend of October 24-28, 2018. Being a local we've always loved Mattei's and the ambience of the bungalows. All of our guest were so enamored with the detail, beauty, service and location of the bungalows, and will come back again and again. Thank you for making this celebration as special as it was!!!

Amanda

"I got married at Mattei's Tavern a two weeks ago and it was AMAZING! We rented out all of the bungalows for family to stay in and it was SO convenient all being together on the property. Everyone LOVED the cute cottages! My bridesmaids and I got ready in the new West Cottage and it was perfect- plenty of room to get ready and take photos (big living room & kitchen, spacious master bedroom, gorgeous master bath & great courtyard). Our wedding was perfect, we received so many compliments from guests about how beautiful of a setting Mattei's is and how special and unique the property is. Santa Ynez Rentals was so accommodating and helped to make sure everything at the venue was perfect for our weekend. It was the best weekend of our lives and can't wait to go back to visit in the future!!"

"BEST DAY EVER!! We rented all the Bungalows and the Outside Venue for our daughters wedding at Mattei's Tavern from Santa Ynez Vacation Rentals. It was a perfect weekend and the staff was very accommodating to any requests we made. There were numerous little places for the photographer to take memorable photos with a gorgeous natural backdrop. All the bridesmaids got ready in the Big West Cottage Bungalow - that was a JACK POT! The natural lighting and ample space made it a super fun and easy morning for 10 girls to get ready. All the Bungalows have been recently updated and were very clean and comfortable. I would HIGHLY recommend Santa Ynez Vacation Rentals, Matteis Tavern and staying in any or all of the Bungalows!! Great place to host a wedding!!"
