Have you ever wondered what it was like to be in the world of the Stepford Wives? You can find out by heading to the Seven Gables Inn on Monterey Bay. A historic inn that serves up egg-rich breakfasts, wine and cheese hour, and more snacks galore was touted as excellent but "strict". That's because you're going to have to show up on time for these folks or you can forget about your snacks:

One note about "Happy Hour", if we got back past 5:30 pm, all the wine was gone and even when I asked, they wouldn't open a fresh bottle but offered to sell me a bottle! A little tacky.

Despite this, the place is charming, romantic, historic and let us not forget that, as the hosts exlain, "Every room is attended to with meticulous care". With views of the Pacific Ocean, the Seven Gables can be a great weekend trip, so long as you don't touch or move anything in the room or ask for more snacks.
