Fort Bragg, on Northern California's Mendocino Coast, is one of America's great small towns. Just ask the editors of Go magazine, who named it among the country's 16 best places to find main-street charm. "It still retains all the rugged beauty you'd expect from a former logging town-turned-fishing port," they write.

And there's no better vantage point from which to soak up said beauty than at the Beachcomber Motel & Spa on the Beach, doling out a two-night stay for two in a King or Double Queen Ocean-View Room, Sundays through Thursdays ($249) or Fridays and Saturdays ($299), both of which include a 50-minute couples' massage.

If rooms at the Beachcomber are all booked, guests will have the option of staying at its sister property, Surf & Sand Lodge.

About three hours north of San Francisco, this sleepy town of sprawling beauty (giant redwoods, jurassic-looking cypress trees, sweeping beaches) is best experienced with a view of the ocean. And the Beachcomber fits the bill, offering rooms with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that look out onto the waves. They're also equipped with DirecTV, a microwave and refrigerator, and a patio.

Start your stay by luxuriating in a couples' massage at the on-site Spa by the Sea. This newly opened oasis is led by Aaron Hunt, whose 20 years of experience, including a tenure at the Canyon Ranch SpaClub at The Venetian hotel in Las Vegas—one of the country's best—puts you in good hands.

Evenings on the coast call for long walks on the bluffs overlooking the ocean, which are situated just a few steps from the Beachcomber. After a Northern California sunset, make reservations at Mendo Bistro, one of Fort Bragg's best fine-dining restaurants. Belying the low-key nonchalance of its small-town surroundings, this seasonal restaurant crafts decidedly upscale dishes, like deliciously Basque braised rabbit with polenta in a Parmesan broth.

If you can find the time, the Skunk Train, which runs from Fort Bragg to Northspur, is three and a half to four hours of iconic redwood-heavy Mendocino County. And if not, well, you'll just have to soak up the spirit of the region from your perch above the Pacific.

  • "We have been going to the Beachcomber for many many years. It has gotten nothing but better. It has always had the best view on the Coast. Did I mention the gardens? WOW!"
