EAT. PLAY. STAY. PACIFIC GROVE

Pacific Grove – Red House Cafe, Lovers Point, Seven Gables Inn

EAT. RED HOUSE CAFE
The “Little Red House” is a local landmark in the heart of Pacific Grove. Once a charming Victorian residence now the cafe serves up New American cuisine with a European influence and a strong emphasis on fresh, seasonal ingredients. Enjoy great service, tasty food in the cozy indoor dining area or outside on the wraparound porch. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner this quaint cafe and garden shop have been a local fave since 1996.

PLAY. LOVER POINT
For over 100 years, Lovers Point Beach has been Pacific Grove’s most popular spot for shoreline recreation. Surfers love its reliable waves, while kayakers find it a perfect launching spot from which to get out on Monterey Bay and view the coastline and native wildlife. Scuba divers frequent the kelp forests here to get a close-up view of its marine denizens. Landlubbers can compete on the beach volleyball court.  Lovers Point Park has above all become Pacific Grove’s best-loved spot for picnics, plein air painting, and scenic photography. Because of its unique east-facing location, it is also one of the only spots on the West Coast where you can watch the sunrise over the water.

STAY. SEVEN GABLES INN
Seven Gables Inn luxury hotel in Pacific Grove, CA, has it all. Waves pounding the rocky Pacific coast, sea otters frolicking just offshore, the beautiful Monterey Bay Sanctuary, whales spouting in the distance, the surrounding mountains glowing orange in the sunset… guests see these images from every room of Seven Gables Inn hotel in Pacific Grove. Located across the street from the Monterey Bay Sanctuary Scenic Trail, a 15-mile network of bicycle and pedestrian pathways along the coast.

EAT. PLAY. STAY. FELTON

The Cremer House, Mount Hermon Adventures, Fern River Resort

The Cremer House
A “must try” American Resturant & Alehouse. Built by Thomas Cremer in 1874, The Cremer House is the oldest building in downtown Felton. For many years it functioned as the Grand Central Hotel, a restaurant, bar, and boarding house run by Thomas and his wife, Margaret. Rich with history, the building has been preserved and restored to create the perfect setting for an American Restaurant & Alehouse.

Mount Hermon Adventure
For those adrenaline seekers! Mount Hermon Adventures is located 7 miles outside the city of Santa Cruz, in the Santa Cruz Mountains, along California’s Central Coast. Try the Redwood Canopy Tours or the Sequoia Aerial Adventure and have the time of your life in the Santa Cruz Mountain’s majestic redwoods!

Fern River Resort 
The Resort feels like a summer camp. The cabins at this family-run spot are what led us to Felton. You open the windows on cool nights and listen to the San Lorenzo River just yards away. In the morning, you sit on your back porch, watching the water meander past. Fern River Resort cabins are the perfect escape in the beautiful Santa Cruz mountains. Enjoy a relaxing weekend under the redwoods in our cozy paradise.
