Fodor's Review

This woodsy yet luxurious family-run property a few minutes south of town feels like the northern California version of an old-time summer resort. Several lodge buildings house guest rooms that range from cozy to chic, many with ocean views, fireplaces, and paintings by local artists. On the spacious, dog-friendly grounds you'll find organic gardens, llamas, and a sandy river beach where you can rent a kayak or canoe and head 8 miles upstream. Yoga classes and in-room

massages and body wraps are complemented by the sophisticated, all-organic vegetarian cuisine at The Ravens' restaurant ($$–$$$). Breakfast is vegetarian, too.
