Rack up the romance points with this week's Escape to Anton Inn, in picturesque Pacific Grove, about two hours south of San Francisco on the Monterey Peninsula.

You'll get a two-night stay for two, Sundays through Thursdays between May 14 and June 30 or between September 1 and December 24 ($199), or Fridays and Saturdays between September 1 and December 24 ($279), in a Standard King or Double Queen Room with blissful bedding, a sparkling tiled bathroom, and cozy fireplace.

Situated on the southern tip of Monterey Bay, your sleek and modern sanctuary is just a heartbeat away from the area's most coveted coastal spots as well as the gorgeous galleries, eclectic shopping, and renowned restaurants in Pacific Grove, Monterey, Pebble Beach, and Carmel.

Rekindling your passion on an empty stomach is never a good bet—start fueling your romance with a fresh continental breakfast of organic fruit, local pastries, and regional specialities each morning.

Then pack a picnic and head for Lover's Point, where you can kayak or scuba dive among the kelp forests, surf the reliable waves, and watch the open-air artists sketching the sea-sprayed rocks. It's also a rare east-facing beach where early risers can catch a sunrise on the West Coast.

In the afternoon, return to your our own love nest for a winning combo of wine and hors d'oeuvres—perhaps some delectable bites of cheeses, thinly sliced smoked salmon and salami, juicy tomatoes in balsamic, and chocolate fudge cake—and relax on the patio.

The evening promises equally romantic splendor: a steak and lobster dinner, plus wine, at a romantic candlelit table for two in the dining room of the inn.

The next day, enjoy world-famous whale watching thanks to Monterey's Submarine Canyon (the ocean's answer to the Grand Canyon) or hike to Jacks Peak in Monterey or Garland Park in Carmel Valley. Golfers will fall head-over-heels for the internationally renowned Pebble Beach Golf Links, while the whole family will adore the underwater wonders at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which draws nearly two million visitors annually with its up-close-and-personal exhibits.

You've hit the romance jackpot with this crush-worthy retreat less than a mile from the water.

  • "Anton Inn's newly renovated motor-inn exterior, and part beach cottage, part Dwell magazine interiors—think a hip uncle's pad in Provincetown—meld to create an under-the-radar art gallery/inn."
