Long before there was Hollywood, there was Santa Barbara. All the movie production companies that eventually relocated to Los Angeles first made their home right here in Santa Barbara. Even after many stars moved on to Hollywood, Santa Barbara's allure could not be denied, and this was where they came back to play and to live.
BEFORE: In 1943, Mr. Chaplin returned to Montecito to marry the love of his life, Oona O'Neill.
AFTER: Many things have come and gone, but the popularity and luxury of the Inn has remained.
Charlie Chaplin immediately fell in love with the area. So much so, that he, along with a small group of investors, built the Montecito Inn in 1928 as an upscale getaway. It soon became one of the most desirable destinations along the California coast. Soon after the Montecito Inn opened its doors, it became the "cream of the coast" between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Years later, in 1943, Mr. Chaplin returned to Montecito to marry the love of his life, Oona O'Neill. Since then, many things have come and gone, but the popularity and luxury of the Inn has remained.
BEFORE: Known as the "Cream of the Coast"
between Los Angeles and San Francisco
AFTER: Located on Coast Village Road within walking
distance of Butterfly Beach, Boutique Shopping and Fine Dining.
