Flanked by the Pacific Ocean on one side and gorgeous wine country on the other, today's Escape will envelop you in a cocoon of luxury.

Spread your wings and float over to the Hill House Inn for a two-night weekend ($199) or weekday ($179) trip, where you and your travel companion will stay in a beautiful Garden View Room.

Additionally, enjoy a complimentary bottle of wine, daily continental breakfast, and 30 percent off meals at the Inn's sister property, The Mendocino Hotel.

Immerse yourself in seaside tranquility on the breathtaking Mendocino Coast, or what the The New York Times calls "one of California's least-known and most beautiful wine regions." The Inn itself is no shrinking violet-in fact, it's a bit of a celebrity in its own right, as a filming location for many an episode of Murder She Wrote-and sits amid forests and charming Victorian gardens.

Says one TripAdvisee, "The rooms and ambiance are incredible. I love getting a room with a gas fireplace and leaving the sliding door open to hear the ocean at night."

Just 40 minutes from Hill House lies a long row of vineyards, flush with grapes as far as the eye can see. Flit from winery to winery and revel in the unique qualities of this appellation. The renowned Husch Vineyards are the oldest in Anderson Valley, while boutique winery Esterlina bottles every single red and white by hand. For those with a craving for flavorful nectars, the award-winning Navarro Vineyards recently released a cluster-select Muscat Blanc for the first time in five years.

Your antennae will perk up at the medley of activities at your disposal: Traverse the Mendocino Headlands State Park, pausing to watch a gray whale migration and glowing sunset, then explore a new environment and go abalone diving off the coast.

If you'd rather not hunt for your supper, zip over to The Mendocino Hotel for a 30 percent discount on breakfast, lunch, and dinner-try the Dungeness crab cakes, house quiche, or Maple Creek Farms crispy skin duck for a hearty meal.

Emerge from this decadent Escape refreshed and transformed, ready to soar.
