New to Stash: Lakehouse Hotel & Resort, San Marcos CA

Cheery, eclectic design meets lakefront serenity at this North County San Diego resort. No creature comforts are overlooked: dine on nouveau comfort food (burratta and figs, bacon-wrapped Angus meatloaf), get a “lochnessa” salt scrub in your room, read pulp fiction in a hammock by the pool, float the lake in a kayak.


Meditate to the sound of the waves on your private deck. Also good for: recovering from “Beer Club” — the resort is in the heart of San Diego’s brew country.

Non-tradtional design for traditional summerhouse pleasures: reading, talking, board games.
