Post Ranch Inn, Big Sur, CA
Two hours from San Francisco and a thousand feet above the crashing waves awaits Post Ranch Inn, a series of foliage-shrouded Tree Houses and ultra-private cottages. These 41 freestanding slate, glass, and wood accommodations feature commanding vistas of the Pacific and the Santa Lucia Mountains with floor-to-ceiling windows, private decks, wood-burning fireplaces, and luxurious indoor spa tubs. What they don’t have are TVs or clocks—a nudge to tune into your partner instead. Pick up a picnic from the resort’s Sierra Mar restaurant and cruise the coast in one of the inn’s gratis convertibles, then make your way back for a dip in the cliff-top infinity pool.
Price Tag: From approximately $625 per night, includes daily breakfast.
