Laurel Springs Ranch is a 160-acre (0.65 km2) ranch located on a ridgetop in the Santa Ynez Mountain range northwest of Santa Barbara, California, between the Painted Cave community and the intersection of Painted Cave road with East Camino Cielo Road in the Los Padres National Forest.

Homer Snyder developed the ranch in 1902, and built the Laurel Springs Inn on the property in 1905. George Owen Knapp bought it in 1916.

In 1977, actress Jane Fonda and her husband Tom Hayden bought it and she later operated both a workout studio spa and a summer camp for disadvantaged children there until the early 1990s.

It was then bought by Melissa Keeler and Michael Morris. Together they developed it into the Laurel Springs Retreat, and is now used for group trainings and individual rentals.
