The Destination
Perched on the southern tip of the Monterey Peninsula, just two hours south of San Francisco, Pacific Grove boasts all the charm of its more popular neighbor to the north—minus the crowds. A quiet coastal community of about 15,000, Pacific Grove is a look back at what California used to be, with Victorian architecture and sea-beaten lighthouses at every turn. Add to that the town's breathtakingly beautiful beaches, where rocky cliffs meet the whorls of the Pacific Ocean, and you've got a quintessential California beach town that's happy to fly under the radar.

The Digs
Just steps from the area's most coveted coastal spots, as well as the gorgeous galleries, eclectic shopping, and renowned restaurants of the Monterey Coast, Anton Inn embraces the artistic spirit of the town's past, displaying local art throughout the building. You'll stay in a Standard King or Double Queen Room with cozy bedding, a sparkling tiled bathroom, and a cozy fireplace.

Start the day with a fresh breakfast of fruit, bagels, and bread, and warm dishes like pancakes and sausage. In the afternoon, return to your our own love nest for a cheese and olive plate, and relax on the patio.

The Diversions
During the day you'll get a wine tasting for two at two local wineries, including the renowned Heller Estate Organic Vineyards, which rests on 120 acres in the hills above the Hidden Springs of Cachagua in the Carmel Valley. At night, you'll be treated to a steak and lobster dinner for two—with wine—at the inn.

You can also rent a bike on-site at Anton Inn from Adventures By The Sea, 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. Or, check out world-famous whale watching in Monterey's Submarine Canyon.

And it wouldn't be a trip to the Monterey Peninsula without a visit to one of the world's most popular aquariums. Monterey Bay Aquarium draws nearly two million visitors annually with its up-close-and-personal exhibits, and it's less than two miles from the inn.

  • "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."
