The Destination
Surrounded by some of California's most peaceful scenery—from the redwood forests to the boulder-strewn coastline—and populated by some of the state's mellowest citizens, Fort Bragg has long since shirked its antebellum military roots. Today, this town of 10,000 residents on the Mendocino Coast attracts artists and outdoorsmen, peace seekers and wine drinkers, who appreciate the town's dedication to both environmental and architectural preservation, as well as those who just need a break from city living.

The Digs
The AAA Three Diamond Emerald Dolphin Inn, just steps from ocean cliffs and walking trails, earned big-time props on CBS's Eye on the Bay and E! Network's Great Escapes, thanks to its in-the-thick-of-everything location in Fort Bragg—it's close to good food and wine, antique shops, scenic views, horseback riding, and bird watching, but also plenty of peace and quiet. Each renovated suite is equipped with Wi-Fi, cable TV, and a private bathroom with granite accents, and continental breakfast for two comes compliments of this pet-friendly inn. For the kids (and kids at heart!), Emerald Dolphin Inn features a public 18-hole golf course as well as an arcade, not to mention a family hair salon.

The Diversions
The 47-acre Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens is known for its rhododendrons, which are native to Southeast Asia but thrive in the cool, foggy climate that's landed atmospheric Mendocino a role in dozens of movies and TV shows. March and April are the best months to catch these vibrant flowers at their most fragrant.

Fresh off the Fort Bragg Whale Festival, this charming coastal community of about 9,000 still offers myriad chances to spy the migrating beasts from atop the paved paths of Todd's Point or Pomo Bluff. Or, catch a ride on the Skunk Train, a restored railcar that winds through towering redwoods and tunnels, over bridges, and alongside meadows, following the same and mostly unchanged route since 1885.

  • "A fantastic little find! The room was comfortable and well appointed. It is a short walk from a very nice restaurant, and the town is not far. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a good room in a very pretty location."
