Go Retro at a Private California Inn
Each of the 11 themed cabins at Mendocino’s Andiron Seaside Inn (doubles from $90 to $129) shows off trinkets and aging memorabilia the owners scavenged throughout the years from flea markets and old school libraries. Boredom should never strike: rooms are equipped with kitchenettes and classic board games, lawns are primed for rounds of croquet or badminton, and even a private hot tub in the woods is open for afternoon or evening soaks. By-request housekeeping ensures privacy, though those in the socializing mood can enjoy cheese, locally sourced beer, and good company by the main lodge’s fireside during weekend happy hours. —Lindsey Olander
Room to Book: Cabin 4, dubbed “There,” is an homage to world travel and features a glowing globe lamp, a pull-down school map, and vintage geography games.
Insider Tip: Dog owners, rejoice: canines are allowed to room with their owners at Andiron and are encouraged to be social.
