The Garden of Eden is hard to get into these days. Leave groveling to lesser mortals, and steal away to a lush utopian hideaway a little closer to home with this week's Escape to the Secret Garden Inn & Cottages.

Enjoy a two-night stay for two, Sundays through Thursdays, in a cottage with a hot tub ($289). Or, upgrade to a weekend stay for an additional $100 (booked directly with the inn).

This pick-of-the-crop inn comprises nine charming cottages, each boasting a private entrance, full bath, and wireless Internet. Snuggle in your spacious queen bed, observe myriad birds on the deck, or surround yourself with lush gardens in the outdoor hot tub.

Bask in the inn's bountiful amenities, starting with a complimentary bottle of local Santa Barbara wine upon arrival. Each day begins with a gourmet breakfast featuring homemade quiches, scones, muffins, fresh fruit, and more, and wine and cheese is served as an afternoon pick-me-up. Then, indulge in brownies and hot cider each evening.

The American Riviera, as Santa Barbara is known, abounds with activity. Head out for an included wine tasting at a Los Olivos winery, then visit Arroyo Burro Beach Park, a local favorite for picnics, surfing, and sunset strolls.

Dig into the area's history at the Old Mission Santa Barbara, an 18th-century landmark boasting immaculately manicured grounds and breathtaking mountain vistas, or get your shopping fix in Downtown Santa Barbara's seven miles' worth of buzzing shops and eateries. At night, catch the Santa Barbara Symphony, celebrating 59 years of inspiring musical performances, at the Granada Theatre.

If only for two nights, the Secret Garden Inn will prove a revitalizing sojourn into all that is good and pure. It was, after all, named one of 52 Great Weekends in 2001 by Los Angeles magazine. And it's all right here on the sunny Central Coast.

  • "If you're tired of faceless, boring hotels and hotel food, if you like something different, this place is for you. This bed and breakfast is very cute. The homemade food is fresh and delicious. The owner is nice and charming."
