Laurel Springs Ranch
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.
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.
