For a place that's commonly marked by a slower pace than its neighboring Northern California cities of San Francisco and Sacramento, Gold Country has found itself in the midst of the action. Earlier this year, the historic enclave of quiet towns was named one of Lonely Planet's Top 10 US Travel Destinations for 2012.

But don't expect this distinction to suddenly line the area's sun-streaked streets or candy-striped buildings with an inclusive velvet rope. When you Escape for two nights to The American Exchange Hotel in Sutter Creek, you'll find a down-home atmosphere that's far from being too done up.

Stay for two nights in a a third-floor room with a shared bathroom ($150) or a second-floor room with a private bathroom ($175). Although you'll have to share the attention with a hotel that's rooted in the allure of the Gold Rush, a complimentary bottle of wine, a flat-screen TV, and wireless Internet access are all yours.

At dinnertime, pull up a chair at the hotel's Bellotti's Restaurant with your $60 credit. Start with spicy mussels in a tomato garlic broth and then cut into pan-seared chicken Marsala served with sautéed mushrooms and smoked bacon or the spinach rigatoni stuffed with artichoke and feta cheese.

In the morning, step out the door and stroll along Main Street, where the 19th-century buildings and cozy storefronts will keep you satisfied until you try breakfast at Thomi's Cafe. Later, do a few stretches before beginning the labyrinth tour through century-old rock formations at Black Chasm Cavern, and then reward yourself with a wine tasting at Sierra Ridge Winery.

Gold Country's stature is on the rise, and this Escape puts you in the inner circle.

  • "Mosey along sidewalks shaded by filigreed balconies or bicycle through blissfully empty Amador County countryside. Belly up to the bar in an 1880s saloon or sip Sierra Foothills vintages at the source."

    -- The New York Times
