Escape to nature and retro-charm at these refurbished, gadget-free 1930s cottages, where your daily activities will include snipping flowers for a bouquet, harvesting a bounty of vegetables for dinner from the organic garden and greenhouse, finding a basket of freshly-laid eggs at your door every morning, roaming open meadows with resident goats and chickens, and soaking in views of the blustery coastline. Rooms are intentionally slim on modern gadgetry so you won't find a TV, phone, radio, or even a clock; you will find hardwood floors, fireplaces, embroidered curtains, a white-enamel stove in the full, if diminutive, kitchen, and straw sun hats hanging from hooks. For exercise, stroll the beautiful grounds or take a path to Fish Rock Beach. Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the property, and there's a two-night minimum stay.
