Retreat to this romantic English Tudor-style B&B for wine tastings, soothing massages, and bubbly breakfasts in bed.

The Destination
Carmel, on the southern edge of the Monterey Peninsula, got its sea legs as a retreat for painters, poets, actors, and other artists seeking inspiration by the sea. And inspiration they got: Ancient-looking cypress trees stand atop sheer cliffs that plunge into the ocean, with red-and-green bluffs overlooking sprawling swaths of perfect beach punctuated by fluttering kites and bounding dogs. Add a glass or two of local wine to the mix, and it's easy to see why Carmel has played muse to many since the early 1900s.

The Digs
Another source of inspiration in this 100-year-old town: The Vagabond's House, a romantic English Tudor-style bed and breakfast situated downtown. You'll be greeted by a Carnel stone courtyard with a trickling waterfall and warm fire pit at its center. Inside, the immaculately maintained inn is appointed with a baby-grand piano, posh period furnishings, local artwork, and rich hardwood floors. Rooms are much the same and are outfitted with plush beds, fireplaces, and vintage work desks. Some even feature kitchens or kitchenettes, and all come equipped with cable TV and wireless Internet.

Wake up to a breakfast in bed—or in the courtyard, if you prefer—that includes fresh fruit, juices, hot beverage, cereals, yogurts, farm market eggs, French pastry, bagels, toast, and house-made jam (gluten-free, dairy-free, and whole grain options are available, too). It's the perfect beginning to a day spent among the various tasting rooms in the region, like Scheid Vineyards, Heller Estate, Shale Canyon Wines, Carmel Road, McIntyre Vineyards, Holman Ranch, Morgan Winery, Manzoni Estate Vineyards, Trio Carmel, and Chalone.

The Diversions
For picturesque ocean views and a bit of Carmel history, hop onto Scenic Road, which winds its way through town and past a number of noteworthy homes, including a Frank Lloyd Wright house built in 1948. For a taste of the town's roots, head to the Carmel Art Association, where several galleries are filled with works by more than 120 local artists.If you're seeking more natural beauty, set off on one of the area's many scenic hikes.
