3 places to rest your weary legs this weekend and be

  • 31 August 2015

September means work. And work? Well, work is a four-letter word. So here are three nearby escapes to run off to when you need to hit the Reset. Each offers moonlit solitude, ample stargazing and stunning views — the sort of places that soothe the soul without forsaking comfort.


Local
Nestled above Topanga Canyon, the stone and glass walls of this four-bedroom pad blend into the hills surrounding its perch atop Saddle Peak. It can sleep eight, boasts an infinity pool and abuts the Saddle Peak hiking trails. For dinner, head due north to Pedaler’s Fork.

Glamping
This cliffhanger in Big Sur
has unobstructed views, a jacuzzi and the option to have masseuses swing by your room. During the day, take in the local galleries and do some zen mountain hopping.

Desert Heat
Sometimes after a week of long hours and longer after-hours, a man needs to dry out. No better place to do that than in the cradle of the Mojave. This modish box sleeps four and comes with a yoga platform, a cowboy tub and a jacuzzi. It’s close to Pappy and Harriet’s Roadhouse, and rowdy acts hit the stage every weekend. We recommend getting a move on for the last weekend of September to hit the Desert Stars Festival.
