Emma Nevada House, Nevada City—There’s nothing like an inn in the Gold Country to transport you back in time, and the Emma Nevada House does it like no other. The historic inn elicits the old days, with velvet high-backed chairs and antiques in the parlors and clawfoot tubs in some of the rooms. The most romantic room, Empress Chamber, is
an ivory-and-burgundy retreat on the main floor, with an antique king-size bed, a large spa bathtub and shower, a cushy sitting area beside expansive windows and a big-screen TV. Upstairs rooms have gabled ceilings and a hideaway feel. Rooms run $169 to $249 and include a seasonal breakfast. (Look forward to a soufflé or stuffed French toast, perhaps.) The inn is within walking distance of Nevada City’s Broad Street shopping and dining district. 528 E. Broad St., Nevada City; (800) 916-3662; emmanevadahouse.com

The Victoria Inn, Murphys—Big house, historic Main Street, Gold Country—it all adds up to eclectic interiors and a sense of adventure. The Victoria Inn sits in the thick of Murphys, where the main drag can hop with activity, and dining, wine-tasting and shopping are steps away. The inn’s rooms run the gamut, and depending on your whims, you can get a balcony, a clawfoot tub, a spa tub, windows next to your tub, high ceilings, a tin roof inhabited by owls, a sleigh bed, a double-sided fireplace. One of the most romantic choices is the Anniversary Suite, with a two-sided fireplace, spa tub and king-size sleigh bed dressed in a down comforter. Another option: Wisteria Cottage, with hardwood floors, curtained-off king-size bed, spa tub and fireplace. Rates begin at $129 and include a continental breakfast. 402 Main St., Murphys; (209) 728-8933; victoriainn-murphys.com ns
