What began as an offering to the inns' employees who worked on Thanksgiving Day has evolved into a special tradition for out-of-town guests. The Martine Inn in Pacific Grove offers a traditional Thanksgiving Day dinner--turkey, ham and duck--with all the trimmings, prepared from scratch by Ismael Vizcaya Diaz, the inn's chef for the past 25 years. The tables are set with Gorham Silver from the 1890s, a fire roars in the fireplace and the waves crash outside. Each guest is individually hand-served and then offered additional helpings from the lavish buffet. The dinner price is $48 per person, plus gratuity and tax.
Stay at the Brannan Cottage Inn in Calistoga for Thanksgiving and enjoy a festive, five-course turkey dinner for only $40 per person.
