As per Rich Report, California's best resorts offer guests access to the state's spectacular nature and world-class wineries.

There is no doubt that travelers are eager to spend time outdoors, and the Golden State delivers in this area.

In addition to seaside spots, the state also has plenty of hidden gems in valleys and agricultural areas. Ojai Valley Inn, for instance, is surrounded by the Topatopa Mountains. 

Big Sur has two properties that are influenced by the Pacific: Alila Ventana Big Sur and Post Ranch Inn. In the south of Carmel, both properties overlook a dramatic stretch of coastline.

This hotel has hosted celebrities such as Jackie and John F. Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn, and Lucille Ball. It sits on 550 acres of lavender, olive and oak trees, gardens, and is surrounded by the Santa Ynez Mountains. With lavish touches such as king-size four-poster beds, Persian rugs, and antique furnishings, the resort's 38 bungalows are thoughtfully designed with cozy touches: they all feature stone fireplaces, private outdoor patios with hot tubs, and rain showers.
