The greatest getaways, like the Best Pictures, are never predictable. If your vacation routine could use a plot twist, get into character for this week's Escape to Carmel-by-the-Sea, California.

You and a co-star will spend two nights at the Carmel Fireplace Inn in a queen or king fireplace room, Sundays through Thursdays ($185) or Fridays and Saturdays ($235). Or, opt for a Dolores Street cottage any days of the week ($295).

Trade Hollywood glitz for red carpet hospitality at the charming bed and breakfast, where you'll receive a bottle of wine, afternoon port or sherry, and complimentary Wi-Fi. Inn rooms boast queen or king beds, cozy fireplaces, and Amish-crafted furnishings. Cut to Dolores Street one block away, where private cottages offer multiple rooms, full kitchens, and plenty of independence.

Inn room guests will start each day with continental breakfast for two. From there, throw away the script, and take your cues from Carmel's vibrant cultural scene. Admire work by more than 120 local artists at the Carmel Art Association, or use two included tasting vouchers to spend the afternoon at one of area's boutique wineries. If you need a change of scenery, Pacific Ocean beaches are a short stroll away.

In the evening, dine at one of the area's A-list restaurants. Venture outside of town to Clint Eastwood's Mission Ranch Restaurant, where the film legend—and former Carmel mayor—has been known to join regulars at the piano bar. To dodge the dinner crowd, reserve one of the twelve tables at Aubergine and enjoy an intimate tasting menu experience.

This week's Escape to Carmel-by-the-Sea is the role of a lifetime, so answer the casting call before you miss your big break.

  • "The one-square-mile village has no street lights, parking meters, or even numbered addresses, but you wouldn't call it low-key. Once a bohemian outpost for folks like Jack London, Carmel today is prime real estate."
