Good bed-n-breakfast or spa destination?

Anyone have any suggestions for a nice bed-n-breakfast or spa destination in the lower 48 States for, oh, a three night hop out of town in mid December?

I'm thinking San Diego or New Mexico, perhaps Arizona...though I wouldn't rule out someplace cold (i.e. mountains).

Any help or direction would be appreciated.

Thanks all!

Gatlinburg/Deal's Gap area. Mountians and curves, what more do you need? Scenery for when you want to kick back and relax, and curves for when you don't. Snow in higher elevations in Dec at times, too.

Re: Good bed-n-breakfast or spa destination?

Don't have a bike right now, so Deals Gap is out (been there before however).

Besides, I'd prefer a warmer envrionment. Not mandatory, just a preference.

Any other suggestions?

+1. My wife and I have gone there the last two years and it's great. I'll put some pics up of our last trip for you Chain ole buddy. It's an awesome place, and this time of year is quiet and affordable. But you gamble a bit w/ the weather.

Fall Creek Falls State Park in TN is nice but December is not super warm here. However you would likely have the place somewhat to yourself

Hrmm, well, that does look interesting. I hope someone else chimes in here with some alternatives simply so I've got a few picks to choose from.

It's in San Luis Obispo, CA. Great hot springs resort just inland from the coast. Wonderful secluded tubs on a hillside or if you get a room you get the hot springs tubs in your room.

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

My wife and I stayed here in 2001 in The Garden House (shown in the picture). It's beautiful out there and in the middle of no-where. Awesome place with big whirlpool tubs and things.

Re: Good bed-n-breakfast or spa destination?

My dad got married at one of these 2 places in Napa. Really nice but I can't recall exactly which one it is. Lot's of hot springs right around there too but it wouldn't be quite as warm in winter as the So-cal places.

Disclaimer: Mine are waterfall/hiking oriented and remote locations. So other than the seclusion and unique scenery, these are not a place for yuppies or folks looking for lots of frill
