Why Mokleumne Hill, you ask? Well, we could spend HOURS pointing out and talking about all of the things to do in this historic area of Calaveras, Amador and Tuolomne counties, and, what better place to set up "base camp" for a few days of relaxing and exploring?
Mokelumne Hill, the richest of the boom towns during the Gold Rush, is conveniently situation in the middle of the California Mother Lode on Historic Highway 49, aka, "The Gold Chain Highway". Travel an hour or less in any direction, and you will find a myriad of things to see and do.
Looking for a place to relax and cool off during the hot summer months? Look no further than the courtyard at the Historic Hotel Leger, with its refreshing pool and three 150-year old orange trees for shade. Or, have our Whitewater Grill pack you a picnic lunch and head out to one of the five lakes in the area for a day of swimming, fishing or boating, or the nearby Mokelumne River - there's a GREAT swimming beach a few miles from the hotel!
Need to find that next great wine for your collection? You can sample fantastic wines right here in town at Renegade Winery, or set out for the day to the Shenandoah Valley AVA in Plymouth in Amador County, or to the Calaveras County vineyards and tasting rooms located near Murphys. We're sure you'll find something unique, and we'd be happy to recommend a few of our personal favorites as well!
Love hiking and the great outdoors? Yep, we've got it - take your pick from the Mokelumne River, a mere 3 miles away, to Calaveras Big Trees State Park, a short 45-minutes away up Highway 4 past Murphys (OK, so its a bit more than 30 minutes, but trust us, its WELL WORTH THE DRIVE!)
Want to challenge your golf skills? Got you covered - there are five fabulouse courses in the area, all of which will let you experience the natural beauty of the Western Sierra Foothills that are the Gold Country!
Want to immerse yourself in the history of the Gold Rush, and maybe shop for some collectibles along the way? Can do! With a plethora of old mining sites and camps, and antique stores galore throughout the area, by the end of the day you'll be wishing you lived here back in the day!
