Set back from the coast less than 2 hours northeast of Los Angeles, the Ojai Rancho Inn is an ideal getaway from the city. It occupies a structure that dates back to the '50s, carefully updated to satisfy modern guests while retaining its charm. The guest rooms are lined with wood paneling and finished with mid-century furniture, while offering amenities like mini-fridges, microwaves, semi-private patios, and jacuzzi tubs. Each has a king-sized bed, and comes with access to free Wi-Fi, the sauna, the pool (an original feature that's now lined with period-correct chairs and loungers), and bicycles for pedalling the short distance to downtown.
Enter now to win a two night stay at the Ojai Rancho Inn, along with a $500 gift card to Apolis, a $500 gift card to Amoeba Music, two pairs of Garrett Leight sunglasses, and a tour of Patagonia Headquarters in Ventura, California.
Finally, a chance to sleep in church without getting in trouble. Set in the rolling hills of Northern England close to Middleton-in-Teesdale, The Chapel is a 19th century house of worship that's been converted into a modern four bedroom cottage. Two of the four bedrooms offer en suites while the other two share a family bath, and the structure also houses a roomy, fully-equipped kitchen that's open to the cozy living area with wood-burning fireplace. In an ideal location for walking, cycling, or just relaxing, with several shops, restaurants, and pubs just a short drive away.
