In the heart of the Santa Barbara, California wine country in the tiny town of Los Alamos sits the Victorian Mansion Bed and Breakfast. This is no ordinary inn or hotel as its Queen Ann-style exterior hides a secret.
The Victorian Mansion, or “the Vick” as it is commonly called, houses six unique theme suites that range from pirate to Egyptian themes. Music, fragrance, hand-painted murals, and tiles immerse visitors.
The Victorian Mansion was constructed by a Russian immigrant family in 1864 and was relocated to its present location in 1980. Dick Langdon, the original owner, opened its doors to guests in the late 1980s after over 200 expert craftsmen spent nearly a decade creating the theme suites. The muralist alone spent over two years completing the murals.
