We are looking forward to the official Memorial Day start of summer this month and have been eyeing some weekend escapes. Big Sur evokes a relaxed and beautiful getaway destination, dramatically positioned along the Pacific Ocean. Ventana Inn & Spa founded by writer Lawrence A. Spector, is a luxury resort that specializes in escapism and on the top of our list. Also, Tablet approved, which we love!
Cedar-and-redwood cabins with stone fireplaces were designed to blend into and be at one with the landscape and the resort’s walking trails meander through forests teeming with deer, fox and wild turkeys.
The Big Sur shores below reveal a stretch of wild and unspoiled coastline with cedar-walled Japanese hot tubs that are open to relax under blue skies or starry nights. www.ventanainn.com
