Vacationist Hotel Deals: Little Bit Country

201109-b-essex-2jpgPlanning your fall escape? Get out of the city with these two stellar Vacationist deals at hotels in the rolling countryside. A stay at the 120-room Essex hotel on 18 acres in Vermont’s Green Mountains promises stand-out cooking, thanks to the on-site New England Culinary Institute’s learning kitchen. For West Coast sybarites, Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, on 220-acres north of L.A., prides itself on its spa services and the locally-sourced ingredients served in six restaurants, plus the pink moment, when the sunset blankets the hills in blushing shade of coral. It may not be Nashville or Tennessee, but you’ll surely feel that peaceful, easy feeling.

The Essex, Vermont's Culinary Resort & Spa - up to 41% off
Essex, Vermont

Rambling over 18 acres where suburban Burlington meets the Green Mountains, The Essex is a laid-back resort with a welcoming staff. The 120 rooms feature four-poster beds, fireplaces, and fanciful rugs and pillows. A new full-service spa plus golf, tennis, hiking trails, and a huge pool offer plenty of distractions. But the cuisine is the standout. Partnering with the New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, the resort runs a learning kitchen and offers classes in knife skills, backyard grilling, and more. Visit The Tavern for a BLT with smoked Vermont bacon or a Vermont goat cheese soufflé. (Sale ends in 3 days.)

201109-b-ojai-1jpgOjai Valley Inn & Spa - up to 41% off
Ojai, California

The 220-acre Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, situated in a mountain valley that aptly portrayed Shangri-la in the 1937 film Lost Horizon, has long been known for its classic 18-hole golf course and its Native American culture-inspired spa. In 2006 it upped the ante with a $70 million renovation, creating a new lobby, adding an additional 100 guest rooms, and refurbishing the existing 205 rooms with four-poster beds and decorative Mexican terracotta tiles. In the spa, signature treatments incorporate locally grown organic ingredients (citrus, lavender), and a dedicated men's menu lures golfers with treatments such as the Gentleman's Luxury Facial and Golfer's Post-Round Massage, which can be administered, upon request, in a room outfitted with a roaring fireplace. (Sale ends in 3 days.)

Test Drive: Orbitz's New iPad App

201101-n-orbitzjpg

I'm sure we've all had the same experience at one time or the other: a spur-of-the-moment road trip cooked up with the intention of letting loose and seeing a bit of the gorgeous country we call home, the thrill of it largely contained in the fact that none of it was planned. And then the inevitable happens. Your eyes start to droop, signs start to blur in and out of focus, and your car starts weaving in its lane slightly. You need to find a place to stay for the night. Problem is, you don't know of any around.

Well, now there's an app for that.

201107_terraneajpg

Because so many big media outlets are based in New York and Los Angeles, the rest of the world gets to hear the minutiae of our local news (Blackouts! Blizzards! Brushfires!) as though it’s their own.  Thus, this weekend’s closing of the 405 freeway in Los Angeles—dubbed Carmageddon—is internationally known, if only locally dreaded.

A few Southern California hotels have offers for those Angelenos hoping to bypass the panic of Carmageddon with a weekend escape.
