William Randolph Hearst erected his enchanting castle just 20 minutes from Cambria for good reason: the region's rocky cliffs and shell-strewn beaches give it a majestic air. While you may not have the bucks to shell out for a sprawling mansion here, an overnight getaway is in the cards.

"To many of its visitors, Cambria, Calif., is a find—like some unexpected treasure stumbled upon at a yard sale—a coastal shock tucked between the waves of the Pacific and the Monterey pine forests of northern San Luis Obispo County," says The New York Times.

Situated equidistant from San Francisco and LA in a garden setting on Main Street, the creekside rooms at the Bluebird Inn feature a fireplace (for those cool California nights) and a balcony or patio (for enjoying that evening glass of champagne). From the quiet accommodations, the burbling Santa Rosa Creek can be heard as it flows past the inn on its way to the Pacific Ocean.

Main Street being the hub of this sleepy seaside town, you're within walking/biking distance of restaurants and art galleries. Check out the elephant seals at the Piedras Blancas rookery, which is home to about 17,000 of them. Oenophiles have more than 100 wineries within 30 miles of Cambria to visit, while hikers have trails in San Simeon State Park that lead to fantastic views from the bluff. And, of course, a guided tour of Hearst Castle is a must.

For dinner, stop by Madeline's Restaurant and indulge in an extensive list of boutique wines from Sonoma, Napa, and the Central Coast paired with local lamb, lobster, and fish—a feast fit for a king.

  • "This sweet motel in Cambria's East Village sits amid beautiful gardens along Santa Rosa Creek; rooms include simply furnished doubles and nicer creekside suites with patios, fireplaces, and refrigerators."
