Old-Fashioned Hospitality
By Nirmala Nataraj (Sep 18, 2009)
In the cozy Mendocino seaside hamlet of Little River, you’re likely to feel that you’re far from the vagaries and cares of city life. Rested, even. This diminutive village is home to a medley of inns and bed n’ breakfasts that take full advantage of the exquisitely windswept landscape and craggy bluffs that plummet into the ocean and find themselves replicated on many a postcard. There may be a dozen Victorian-style B&Bs where you can cozy up fireside while drinking in the view, but the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek definitely takes the cake as one that holds fast to old-fashioned hospitality and homey accents without playing up the chintz. More
A Prime Location
By Nirmala Nataraj (Aug 21, 2009)
The Radisson Hotel Fisherman’s Wharf has a few points in its favor: it boasts a spectacular waterfront spot, it’s in the heart of one of San Francisco’s most beloved destinations, and it’s the prime location to ensure you’re around when the catch of the day gets dragged in. More

A Taste of Vintage San Francisco
By Nirmala Nataraj (Aug 21, 2009)
If you prefer cozy and intimate to ostentatious and cold, consider a stay at the Fitzgerald Hotel. This Victorian boutique mainstay gives visitors a taste of vintage San Francisco; it was built in 1910 and underwent a massive makeover in 2003, but it still retains the same classic touches that probably made it a tourist go-to back in its heyday (including an old-fashioned elevator). More
An Intimate English-style Inn
By Nirmala Nataraj (Aug 21, 2009)

The Lap of Luxury in Carmel Valley

A Slice of the Good Life for the Next Generation
By Nirmala Nataraj (May 29, 2009)
The days of weekend getaways to staid, matronly bed n’ breakfasts sporting out-of-date Victoriana and soignée, hoity-toity guests is officially over. Exorbitant trips to chichi hillside hamlets have been replaced by excursions to eco-chic, casual-meets-upscale places like Solage Calistoga, where you’re more likely to sip a martini in your bikini than sup with the Joneses in a cavernous dining room. More

By Tracie Broom (Mar 28, 2008)
The Bay Area is full of good days. One of the mellowest and most rewarding is to be found 1.5 hours north, in the small towns that ring Tomales Bay, the shallow, cigar-shaped body of water that peacefully straddles the San Andreas Fault just east of Point Reyes National Seashore. More
