The Destination
Stepping out into California's Gold Rush region is like stepping onto a movie set, which is why countless Hollywood Westerns were filmed right here in these hills. Set amid an iconic backdrop of rusty-red soil peppered with Joshua trees, this land is home to myriad boomtowns with ghostly and golden pasts. From saloon fronts frozen in time, to the orange and pistachio fields beyond the mountains, this slice of Americana is sure to rope in your imagination.

The Digs
Built in 1851 to accommodate miners who had come to Mokelumne Hill in search of gold, The Historic Hotel Leger is one of the oldest operating hotels in California. As such, it's seen its fair share of guests over the years, including the hotel's namesake, George Leger, who died here in 1879. His ghost has been spotted wandering the hotel, and guests have reported seeing other spirits (a woman crying for her child, for instance) in the Garamendi Suite, the Lafayette Suite, and George's Room. The Historic Hotel Leger will provide you with a ghost kit to help you explore these sightings for yourself.

You'll have your choice of eight suites. There's the antique-filled Garamendi Suite, which boasts a marble fireplace and pillow-top bed; George's Room, with its cozy rocking chair, flowered wallpaper, and feather-down comforters; and the quaint yet contemporary lavender-hued Fischer Suite. The on-site Whitewater Grill & Saloon serves up a variety of delicious dishes, from portobello-pecan pasta, to pomegranate lamb chops, to salmon Florentine salad—the perfect recharge after a dip in the shaded outdoor pool.

The Diversions
• Nosh on snacks from Mokelumne Hill Nuts
• Sip varietals at Renegade Winery
• View the Petroglyphe Gallery, which houses oil paintings, ceramic works, and bronze sculptures
• Picnic and swim at nearby Box Beach on the Mokelumne River, or visit one of five lakes in the area for a full day of boating, fishing or swimming

  • "Not only the perfect not-over-restored ambiance, but the food in the connected restaurant was absolutely awesome. The bar is still worthy of being called a saloon—fits perfectly with the setting. Great getaway!"
