I have probably gone down highway 101 plenty of times and passed by Solvang, completely unaware of one of California’s gems. One of my Southern California friends mentioned how she was dying to visit the Danish town in California. I had no idea what she was talking about so I had to look it up myself. After seeing a few photos, I was immediately convinced that this is going to be my next getaway. A part of my findings led me to the town’s most charming hotel, The Landsby.
If you’re the type who is keen on posh spaces and swanky interiors, The Landsby is sure to please. Once you enter the doors, you will notice that every corner, every wall, every inch has been designed with careful consideration. The hotel is situated in the heart of Solvang which leaves you walking distance to the best shops and dining the town has to offer.
Even if you don’t leave the hotel, you’re at one of the best spots in town. Their bar has Instagram worthy cocktails that look as good as they taste. Their restaurant, Mad & Vin, is one of the town’s best in fare with some ultra stylish decor. I had the pleasure of having dinner there the first night. Everything was on point from the food to the service. And oh, check out that backdrop!
The grounds were not only impeccable but evokes a truly magical feeling. I don’t know if it has to do with Solvang’s appeal, but I do know the hot chocolate bar by the check in counter might have had something do it with it. I don’t know what they are putting into it, but I could not resist going back for seconds!
So if you ever mosey on over to Solvang, The Landsby is a must for on your to-do list whether you’re spending the night or simply grabbing a drink. Thank you so much to The Landsby for being sensational hosts!
