Ensenada, Mexico

Just 90 minutes from San Diego is a tiny, breathtaking retreat high on a hillside in the Mexican desert that makes civilization feel a million miles away. The 20 weathered-steel, 240-square-foot cabins are ultra-modern (Edison bulbs, rain showers), but the star is the floor-to-ceiling window with views of the renowned vineyards of Baja California Norte's Valle de Guadalupe, whose Zinfandels and Sémillons can be sipped—accompanied by freshly baked focaccia—as you watch the sunset from a private deck with a clay chiminea.
