Pan through the pine trees and dig into the California countryside—with an Escape to Julian H Ranch in Julian, California, you're sure to strike it rich with a golden getaway.

While the California Historical Landmark was packed with scrambling settlers during the Gold Rush, the only thing you'll be rushing into during your two-night stay for two ($199) at this scenic ranch is when to schedule your included wine flight for two at Orfila Vineyards & Winery's Tasting Room.

Glide through the ranch's gilded halls and take in the wealth of panoramic views before sipping your included bottle of wine in your cozy accommodations. Afterward, seek guidance from the ranch's stellar staff to plan your Julian adventure.

"A trip to Julian (pop. 3,000) is a trip back in time," says Frommer's. "The old gold-mining town, now best known for its apples, has a handful of cute B&Bs; its popularity is based on the fact that it gives city-weary folks a chance to get away from it all, especially on weekdays, when things are a little quieter here."

The ranch is only a mile from Julian's Main Street, so start your expedition by stopping by Julian's Chamber of Commerce to snag a map for a self-guided walking tour of the historic town. On October 6 and 7, Julian hosts its annual Apple Days Festival, packed with food, music, art, and kid-friendly activities. If you aren't in town for the event, mine a bushel of juicy, fresh-picked apples from one of the area's multiple orchards. Later, savor the cooling coastal breezes during your wine flight at Orfila's Tasting Room.

As the Cali sun begins its glowing descent, start dinner with an included appetizer at Jeremy's on the Hill before sifting through a selection of seasonal entrées. Julian offers a vast frontier of possibilities, and on this Escape you can discover a nugget of history while you savor a sampling of Pacific blends.

  • "Radiating the aura of the Old West, Julian offers an abundance of early California history, quaint Victorian streets filled with apple-pie shops and antiques stores, fresh air, and friendly people."

    -- Frommer's
