Food, flowers, and wine—it's quite the recipe for romance. Cuddle up with your special someone with this Escape to Flora Vista Inn, just south of Santa Cruz in La Selva Beach, California.

A plush bed, blazing fireplace, and sweeping views set the mood for romance at this 1871 farmhouse, a replica of Abraham Lincoln's home in Springfield, Illinois. Individually decorated room are named for flowers and feature TV, wireless Internet, and other essential amenities during your stay.

If the way to your heart is through your stomach, then start each day with a delectable gourmet breakfast, followed up in the evening by 5 p.m. appetizers and wine offered in the great room. Nearby, Café Sparrow offers a menu of succulent filet mignon, chocolate-espresso pot de crème, and other French cuisine with Californian flair.

Bargetto Winery, down the road in Soquel, was established in 1933 and welcomes visitors daily. Its award-winning collection of wines has earned gold medals at five international competitions as well as other accolades. Stop by to sample a glass or take home a bottle of your own.

You can explore more of the Monterey Bay coast—and save on the toll—by biking down the 17 Mile Drive. Free for cyclists, this scenic ride winds around the area's iconic wind-swept cyprus trees and its tasteful, palatial estates. You can stand on your own two feet on a stroll at nearby Sand Dollar Beach, a vast expanse of coastline with views of Monterey and Pacific Grove.

If you've been looking for a romantic respite, this Escape will be love at first sight.

  • "Multicolor fields of flowers, strawberries, and veggies unfold in every direction at this luxury neo-Georgian inn set on two serene acres just south of Aptos. Stroll through the eclectic gardens (something's always in bloom) or play tennis."
