No wonder this was JFK's honeymoon spot: The 500-acre property, which got a $150 million re-investment in 2011-2012, gives the impression of stretching on forever (even if a few neighboring mansions creep into the picture), and when you arrive at the long driveway lined with olive trees and lavender, you have the sense of being on the frontier, at the last citrus grove before civilization gives way to the scrubby Santa Ynez Mountains. All of the 41 private cottages and suites have decks and hot tubs. The resort sits less than an hour south of the Santa Ynez Valley, a perfect daytrip for wine tasting.

Room to Book:

The Kennedy Cottage—the suite where John and Jackie honeymooned in 1953—has private, vine-covered decks and panoramic ocean views.

Insider Tip:

The hotel has been pet-friendly since the 1930’s, when the former owner’s dachshunds wandered freely. Now dogs receive food and water dishes, toys, and even in-room massages.
