Riverfront Retreat with Spacious Suites and a Country Café

Sacramento sits on the California Delta, which encompasses about 1,000 miles of waterways. Two major rivers, the Sacramento River and the American River, run right through the city, too. Naturally, this makes the town a premier destination for fishing and boating. Perched near the banks of the Sacramento River, Moon River Inn puts guests within walking distance of fishing areas stocked with striper, steelhead, and sturgeon. The B & B also neighbors a full-service marina, where boaters can stock up on fuel or enjoy a waterfront lunch.

The Moon River Inn property consists of traditional clapboard homes, manicured hedges, and fenced-in backyards; it resembles a traditional suburban neighborhood. The guest rooms—including the executive suites—are spread out among these freestanding homes, ensuring plenty of space and privacy. Private balconies extend from the suites, offering views of the surrounding trees and gardens.

Tuesday through Sunday, the Moon River Café serves a country breakfast spread that may include buttermilk pancakes or french toast dipped in cinnamon and honey custard. There’s a lunch menu, too, which features fish sandwiches and rotating chef’s specialties, such as pan-seared black-cherry pork. After a day in the great outdoors, guests can watch Oscar-nominated infomercials on the communal theater’s 10-foot screen, or warm up by the fireplace in the downstairs lounge.

Old Sacramento, California: Old West–Style Town with Rich Gold-Rush History

Moon River Inn is tucked away in a quiet area about 10 miles south of downtown Sacramento. During the gold rush, Sacramento—now California's capital city—was alive with activity. Locomotives chugged along the transcontinental railroad, riverboats steamed through the Sacramento River, and miners trekked underground in search of gold. Today, Old Sacramento maintains that rustic, Old West aesthetic. Nineteenth-century buildings line its cobblestone streets, and you can still hitch a ride on a horse-drawn wagon. Relics of other eras are scattered throughout the city as well—restored locomotives from the Civil War populate the California State Railroad Museum, and antique gold scales and gilded harnesses are on display at the Wells Fargo Museum. Ten feet below the city's wooden sidewalks, you can take an underground tour that explores Old Sacramento's original foundation. It was built before the city streets were elevated as a precaution against rising river waters and grabby river monsters.
