The Destination
An hour east of San Diego in the Cuyamaca Mountains, the former gold-mining town of Julian is now Southern California's premier apple-growing region. A sleepy hamlet that's held onto its historical roots—and has been designated an official California Historical Landmark—Julian offers visitors a trip back in time. Here, you can hitch a horse-drawn carriage down Main Street, tour the old mines, and sample the region's famous apples, all in a single day. Still, there's no lack of sophistication in this quaint little town, with several nearby wineries offering tastings and a few noteworthy restaurants serving upscale seasonal cuisine.

The Digs
It's all within reach at the AAA Four Diamond-rated Orchard Hill Country Inn. This Craftsman-style hotel—a 22-room boutique property with a touch of European flair—features seasonal gardens and sweeping views of the valley below, not to mention a high-end restaurant serving local, organic California cuisine.

Opt for a Lodge Room and you'll have your choice of seven beautiful accommodations (2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9, or 10). Each features a queen-size bed and is uniquely quaint in its country décor, with different details like plaid pillows, rose wallpaper, and colorful linens.

Meanwhile, each available Cottage Room (Gladstone, Annie Elizabeth, Bess Pool, Jonagold, Valmore, and McIntosh) is decorated with the same charming touches and appointed with a porch, patio, or deck. Many of the rooms also feature a whirlpool tub in the bathroom.

The Diversions
Pack a picnic and head for the hills, home to an array of native wildlife, such as migrating turkeys, bobcats, and deer. Or, explore miles upon miles of hiking trails outside Julian. In town, check out the Julian Hard Cider Miners' Saloon for a tart alcoholic elixir, or go for a tasting at Orfila Vineyards or J. Jenkins Winery. At night, tuck into organic free-range Jamaican chicken with mango salsa and a glass of local wine at the inn's superb restaurant.
