Contemporary coastal vibes wash over the Fireside Inn on Moonstone Beach, just steps away from historic, scenic Highway 1.
Whether on a cold winter’s night or a cool summer evening, every blue-hued room is kept warm by a gas fireplace. Guests awake to a hot breakfast buffet every morning and can "wine" down in the evening with complimentary vino receptions or a dip in the outdoor heated pool and Jacuzzi.
Hop in the car for less than 15 minutes and find three uniquely different local sites -- Piedras Blancas Elephant Seal Rookery (a sanctuary for marine mammals), Hearst Castle (the grandiose estate of newspaper titan William Randolph Hearst) and San Simeon National Park (over 3,400 acres of wetlands and beach).
Continue driving due north another 2.5 hours for legendary Big Sur scenery. Snap photos of the area’s famed rugged cliffs and beautifully arched beaches. For those looking to stay local, the town of Cambria caters to culinary quests and antique hunts.
