Camping-in-style for those who don't like to camp—think spa services—this eco-adventure resort is a popular getaway for Silicon Valley techies and other urbanites. Trails from the 40-acre property connect with Año Nuevo State Reserve (just across Highway 1) and four state parks, including Big Basin. Rooms in the lodge have fireplaces and open to patios and decks where you can relax and watch deer and other wildlife bound across the hillsides. Cabins and tent bungalows
don't have private baths, but they have electric lights, comfy beds with real mattresses, and access to nearby comfort stations: restroom facilities with a courtyard fireplace, sauna, heated concrete floors, and private indoor and outdoor showers. Costanoa also manages an on-site RV and tent camping area. The Cascade Bar & Grill serves coastal California-style meals all day, and the Spa at Costanoa offers a full menu of massage options.
