Each of the four keepers' quarters at the Point Arena Lighthouse has a wood-burning stove--oh, and a view of those ridiculous cliffs.
All of The Other Place's cottages, including the Buckeye, are pup-friendly (and fenced in so your pooch can't run off into the surrounding hills.)
Get off the wine-country grid in Mendocino, where charming inns, rugged coastline, intimate vineyards and a burgeoning craft-beer scene will keep you busy yet relaxed.
Where to stay: Don?t be put off by the main property?s icky-sounding name (OK, it?s Sheep Dung). The four cozy cottages at The Other Place sit atop a 500-acre ranch and overlook the idyllic Anderson Valley (starting at $140 a night). Or fall asleep to the sound of the Pacific crashing against the cliffs in one of the ?keeper? rooms at the historic Point Arena Lighthouse (starting at $125 a night).
Where to eat and drink: Sip on some of the region?s most respected Pinot Noirs at the Goldeneye vineyard in Philo, and be sure to stop by the nearby Philo Apple Farm for some swigs of their hard cider. Ready to sate your appetite? Try Patrona in downtown Ukiah, where the menu changes daily (we love the rainbow trout with potato, bacon, kale and asparagus hash).
What to do: Take a bioluminescence tour through Catch a Canoe to see the Big River?s phosphorescent sea organisms. Then stretch your legs on a hike through the Stornetta Public Lands, 1,132 acres of unspoiled coastline that were recently opened to the public.
