America's Best Bed and Breakfasts
Cass House Inn; Cayucos, CA
Husband-and-wife owners Jensen and Grace Lorenzen transformed a 19th-century house that belonged to the town's founder (James Cass) into this elegant five-room inn. Jensen oversees the kitchen, creating dishes like buttermilk-brined Riconda Dairy chicken with chanterelle mushrooms, brussels sprouts and market yam puree; the wine list emphasizes Central Coast producers like Kosta Browne. Rooms from $165; www.casshouseinn.com.
