... This particular road section has sheer stone cliffs hugging the road on either side. The night before though it was 40 degrees, there was a huge storm that involved torrential rain, thunder and lightening. I guess this storm caused the road closure so we had to find another route. As we finally got closer to the Grand Canyon we could see lightening everywhere - then it rained....so our trip to the Grand Canyon was ruined. We could hardly see much as clouds ...

I caught the Amtrak from Chatsworth metro station ( had another appointment here for my greencard ) to Santa Barbara. The trains are two storey and just fantastic. It takes a couple of hours and runs along the coast some of the way. At one point there were miles of parked RV's all in a line along the coast roAd. Quite a sight but a bit of an ...

Historical Traveler Reviews James House Santa Barbara
James House - no detail overlooked
Marie is an absolute perfectionist and every detail shows her touch. The property is gorgeous inside and out. If you like a well kept inn, that is immaculate and well cared for, then this is the place.
Bed was comfy and building was quiet.
Breakfast for the three days we were there was yummy (and good for us). Ask for seconds of the triple berry breakfast cobbler...wow! All meals are made from scratch.
Location is good close to State Street but not too close. Marie knows the restaurants, golf courses and entertainment if you need help finding something to do.
We will be back (Marie, please make extra cobbler!)
Thanks again for a charming couple days.
Just returned from a 3-night stay at this wonderful B&B. Marie is a most gracious and hospitable host and an outstanding cook. She made us feel right at home immediately. The room was even better than we expected from the photograph and it was kept spotlessly clean. The afternoon social goes way beyond the typical cheese and crackers we've gotten at other B&Bs. Lots of healthy, gourmet, very tasty food and delicious SB wines. Breakfasts were fantastic. Marie knows the city and surrounding areas well and is a fountain of knowledge about restaurants and activities. We felt very well taken care of!
Loved this B & B!!!!!
My husband and I just stayed at the James House 2 weeks ago and it was one of the best Bed & Breakfast experiences we've ever had. The house was lovely...but the thing that really made it special were the proprietors. They took really good card of us and were amazing gormet cooks! The B & B is walking distance to all the shops on State Street and a nice hike to the beach. We highly reccomend this place as a fantastic weekend get-away!
Our weekend at the James House was Perfect. A great Victorian 5-room house on quiet Chapala St. located just where you would want to be. We stayed on a Sunday/Monday and Marie, the owner, truly took care of us. Actually she blew me away.
Outstanding Santa Barbara Inn
Marie, the owner, made us feel like welcome guests immediately upon arrival. The rooms were exactly as pictured on their web site and the cleanest I have ever seen at any beak and breakfast anywhere!
The breakfasts were gourmet delights. The location is very convenient and walking distance to most of the businesses on State Street.
Overall, we were pleased with the whole experience with the James House.
Loved the James House
My wife and I recently took my parents on a tour down the PCH from SAN FRAN to LA. I found the James House on line and what a treat!
Our host was lovely and made us feel right at home. She prepared a lovely snack with some local SB wine...delicious.
In addition she recommended and excellent local restaurant that was one of our best meals on the trip.
The building is spotless..truly a wonderful experience.
We stayed at the James House for our 10th wedding anniversary. James House was the perfect way to celebrate! Beautifully decorated bed and breakfast that kept the integrity of a Victorian home while keeping in mind the comforts of modern amentities. Attention to details such as pictures of Santa Barbara in its early years and having everything you need in the room- mini-fridge, water, iron/ironing board, robes, brochures of Places to See in Santa Barbara, hair dryer, newpaper, DVD and tv player, books, DVDs, and games available for your use (free of charge) and wireless internet access. Each room had (spotless) private baths with toiletries- just in case you forgot! House is located on a quiet tree-lined street within walking distance to downtown Santa Barbara (State St.) We took many evening walks to local restuarants.
We have visited James House twice in the past two years, most recently the week of Feb 23, 2007. On a quiet tree-lined street within easy walking distance of State Street shopping and a short drive from the Mission and the Harbor, James House is nicely situated. It is a beautiful home with a classic Victorian drawing room and fireplace, views from the upstairs rooms, and convenient off-street parking!. The five rooms, each with their own character, are nicely furnished and spotless. Marie, the owner, makes it a great place to stay. She prepares a wonderfully fresh breakfast to start each day, along with 5PM hors d'oeuvres, wine and conversation as a great start to each evening. She has lots of touring and dinner recommendations and will help get you a table at a local hot spot. I encourage you to visit. We will again (and again!)
We have just returned from a weekend stay at the James House B&B in Santa Barbara, CA. It is a great B&B to spend a relaxing time away from the everyday work grind. The service was so incredible. We arrived late on a Friday from Long Beach to spend a Pre-Valentines Day Holiday Weekend. Marie, one of the owners, was quite friendly and courteous.
James House Santa Barbara is a luxurious period home with many original features and restored to a very high standard. This Bed and Breakfast Inn is truly wonderful. From the moment we arrived, we knew this was a very special place. We were welcomed with genuine warmth and sincerity.
