This inn is a monument to 1920s rustic elegance; the Redwood Empire’s first luxury resort is a national historic landmark. Hollywood’s elite once frolicked in the Tudor-style resort’s lobby, where you can play chess by the crackling fire, and enjoy complimentary afternoon tea and scones. Note that the inn is currently undergoing a massive expansion project.

Rooms have top-quality beds, antique furniture and crystal sherry decanters (including complimentary sherry). The window-lined dining room (breakfast and lunch $10 to $15, dinner mains $22 to $32) serves excellent meals; the rib eye earns raves.
