American Seaside Escapes
Chef Jensen Lorenzen and his wife, Grace, helped turn this 19th-century house (originally owned by the town's founder, James Cass) into a luxe five-room inn. Jensen's exceptional four-course dinners are built around locally-sourced ingredients and produce from the inn's garden; the wine list emphasizes Central Coast producers like Tablas Creek.
