The "Dark Side" of Sea Ranch



    PERSEIDS PLEASURES: Finding the ideal spot to view cosmic events like the Perseids -- which will be highly visible on Thursday, Aug. 12 and Friday, Aug. 13 -- can be a challenge. Finding an overnight spot can be even a bit trickier. But Sea Ranch Lodge on the Mendocino coast has that all worked out for us.

    THE "DARK SIDE": The inn has a whole page devoted to upcoming sky-viewing events (the inn quips it is "the dark side" of the pretty ocean-close hotel). We support a hotel that not only wants its guests to be outside at night looking up, but lends time-of-year suggestions.

    CALENDAR: Check it out. The Sea Ranch's summer getaway special starts at $179. Should we also mention the inn loves the pooches? We definitely should.
