The readers of CaliforniaWeekend.com have chosen their favorite California getaways and those results were announced recently on the Website. The top three vote-getters couldn’t be three more different experiences, so there is no doubt there is something for everyone in this year’s winners.
Topping the field this year was the luxurious Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, located in the small community of Ojai, not far from Santa Barbara. If bed-and-breakfast inns are your preference, the second-place winner this year is Aurora Park Cottages, a wine-country retreat in Calistoga. And rounding out the top three was Rankin Ranch, a family-run Southern California guest ranch that has been popular with visitors for generations.
Among the getaways receiving the most nominations this year were Curry Village at Yosemite National Park; the Pink Mansion, an intimate bed-and-breakfast in Calistoga; and El Capitan Canyon, a unique luxury tent-camping experience. Also nominated were the famed Bacara Resort of Santa Barbara and Honor Mansion, a wine-country getaway in Healdsburg.
