The cottage is on three quarters of an acre which is all fenced in. I have my home on it and another small little rental. It also has a wonderful garden that gives delicious veggies in the summer and a few fruit trees. Sometimes we do get a little bit of snow here in the winter.
My home is in a neighborhood and most of the houses around are full-time.
  • Very clean and spacious. Everything was prepared and ready for our arrival. Easily accessible and located close to areas for hiking or skiing.

  • My family and I had a great time at Patricia's place. She even left us some homemade snacks! Thank you Patricia!

    Jin2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great little place to say, especially if you want to have some fun in the snow. Bear Valley Skiing only ~30 min drive. Patricia's recipes for brownies and granola are wonderful. I definitely snapped a photo of a copy!

    Lauren2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Super cute and cozy! Heat works great we were very warm the whole time and the board games were very fun!

    J & B2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • There were plenty of unexpected conveniences here. Checkin was very smooth even with two kids on the trip with me. The space was wonderful and you can tell from the small things that Patricia really cares about your experience in the area. I would surely return to the same location especially in how close it was to Bear Valley Adventure.

    Brian And Mirela2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay! Two of my kids and I stayed for a weekend ski trip to Bear Valley. Excellent location and clean, comfortable home. Thank you so much Kathy!

    Bonnie2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely and comfortable space! We had the entire 2nd floor. Download GPS instructions ahead of time as phone reception can be spotty. This was a convenient location to access local hiking!

Settled in the Forest at 3450 feet elevation. 7 miles from Main Street Murphy's and 7 miles from Arnold. Adventure awaits in the outdoors. Enjoy various local mountain lakes, easy river access in Dorrington, fishing, hiking, kayaking and more. Beautiful drive up the hill to Big Trees State Park and Bear Valley.

    Located in Hathaway Pines which is approx 7 miles outside of Murphy’s and approx 7 miles before Arnold. Elevation is approx 3500 ft.
  • A great little escape in the middle of Calaveras County! It’s perfectly situated between Murphy’s and Arnold and a short jaunt to Bear Vally. Their cabin has all the amenities of home, is super clean, and has all the coziness of the ski lodge. It will certainly be my destination spot the next time I’m up in that area.

    Stephen2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin was amazing! The place was clean, had a great hot tub. lots of room to relax! Tucked back into the forest right off 4 it provides a great escape from the busy life!

    Adam2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable and cozy cabin, we would stay there again. Fun decor, just right hot tub and a very comfortable bed.

    Mike2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great cabin to stay at in the area. Super comfortable, has everything you need. If you’re looking for a place to stay in the area would definitely suggest here!

    Shelley2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Cute 2BR/2BA cabin in Arnold, close to restaurants and a grocery store, and about 30 mins from Bear Valley. We enjoyed cozy breakfasts and evenings relaxing in the kitchen/family room with the fireplace heater. We also enjoyed the hot tub after a full day of snow-ventures.

    Clarisse2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Mike and Donna's cabin was the best - our family loved our stay here, and we booked our next weekend getaway back here during our stay. That really says it all! But to break down the standouts for us: - The cabin itself: So cozy! It's evident that it has been lovingly appointed and there are thoughtful touches throughout. We arrived during a storm, and it was warm and inviting and we truly felt like we were in a winter wonderland. On the practical side, it was very clean, and prepared with everything you could need from the basics to the fun stuff (puzzles!). - Location: What a great spot. The perfect jumping off point for exploring the area - we headed up to Bear Valley for snow play and snowboarding both days we stayed. Restaurants and coffee shops and all that good stuff was nearby, too. - Mike and Donna were welcoming hosts! They were responsive and friendly when I had questions. I also accidentally turned off one of the gas fireplaces and when I couldn't figure out how to get it on again, Mike came out himself to turn it back on. Thank you Mike and Donna for your hospitality!

    Claire2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Loved that everything made us feel like we where right at home. Went wine tasting and than came home to a nice relaxing night where we played cards and sat in the hot tub under the stars.

    Alexis2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location to get either downtown Murphys or Calaveras Big Trees. Flat parking was a plus and immaculately clean cabin and hot tub, too!

    Murphys, CA, United States

    While this unit is not too far off the beaten path, you will feel like you're tucked away in the trees. Breathe in the fresh mountain air while you gaze at the beautiful surroundings. Minutes from downtown Murphys, a short drive to Bear Valley, and walking distance to Quyle Kilns, a pottery place that has seasonal music and drama shows. I will be out of cell service from November 4th-7th, but I will reply to any messages as soon as I get back in service. Thank you for your patience!
  • Staying at Danelle is the perfect place for our family’ s weekend on the snow. She is the perfect host! We will get back again!

    Jana2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Danelle place is a small studio but has everything you need in a good location. We rent it last year for our weekend on the snow in Bear Valley and we are renting it even this year. Danelle is easy going, easy to communicate with and try to accommodate your request. We will stay at her place again in couple of weeks.

    Jana2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Danelle was a great host - I had to change my check-in schedule last minute, and she was very accommodating. Her place was very clean, and she offered a very useful pack n play for my infant daughter, as well as baby toiletries and books for us to read together! Great value and a great stay!

    Arthur2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Nice studio with everything you need. Very clean and well stocked with amenities. The host was super responsive.

    Lois2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • This is a hidden Jem! Loved all the special extra touches and amenities. Having a portacrib worked out perfectly for our 18 month old granddaughter. Everything was clean andI loved the location. Such a cute quaint studio on the bottom floor of the owners residence. And with a full kitchen and the great value of the nightly rate we will never stay in a hotel again when visiting the Murphy’s/Arnold area. Danelle was very quick in responding and answered all my question.

    Jill2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Danelle’s hideaway was exactly as described, and she was so accommodating! My husband and I decided on a quick overnight getaway and with two days notice, Danelle was there. She answered my questions quickly and was very flexible. We visit Murphy’s often, and will definitely visit the Hideaway again.

    Monic2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • This space was great as a jumping off place for skiing at bear valley and visiting big trees. Danelle even set out a pack n play for us to use for our 3 month old. She was also super responsive and even caught us before we left town when we forgot one of our baby’s items. Definitely recommend!

    Charley2019-12-24T00:00:00Z

    Hello Murphys Visitors, Please Read The Entire Listing To Learn About Upgrades Coming For 2020. As of August 2019, all four cottages are vacation rentals adjacent tenants have all been removed. The Old West Unit is our upper economy unit and 2020 will have this as a 2 bedroom unit in March. Every stay comes with fresh linens, espresso pods, coffee, snacks, and basic toiletries. We host more than 500 guests, every year, in our various Calaveras County properties with very high repeat rates.
    Beginning December 2019, the property will begin a new facelift with all new landscaping, guest site amenities, and the Old West get moved a freshly refurbished 2 bedroom cottage. The existing Old West Cottage will become the Vintner's Cottage. Each cottage is stocked with fresh towels and linens wine glasses, plates, flatware, and basic cooking needs. The comforters and bedspreads are washed before every visit. When we opened the Old West Unit, it was intended to be a discounted unit which competed with motor lodges in Angels Camp while providing amenities in true downtown Murphys. Most people were happy with this but it does seem most of the market wants higher end amenities if they are staying downtown so we have upgraded the unit. This unit now has a brand new bed set and mattress, brand new sofabed (replacing the futon that seemed to be wildly unpopular), new paint, and upgraded bathroom features. We have done this without much of a price increase and still think we are offering the best deal in town. We wash the entire bed set, including comforter, between every visit. Every visit comes with welcome bag including coffee, soap, hand lotion, and other hospitality items. Each unit has marked parking on the premises. Once parked, you are right across the street from Alchemy. This is the stay you are looking for at a price you will have a hard time beating for the location. Below is the ad we ran in 2017 so you can note the differences between then and now. Please look for our other units in Murphys as well as Lake Tulloch and the Bay Area Coastside. It has been wonderful to offer this unit at an economy rate with modest amenities for the last year. As a child, I frequented the Gold Country, with my parents, and enjoyed the quaint and affordable lodgings that the Mother Lode had to offer and I very much was happy to hear from visitors who appreciated a standalone unit, in real downtown Murphys, at motor lodge prices. The publicity Murphys has been receiving, along with the new demographics that are making Murphys their new destination of choice is good for the local economy. This unit went from being viewed a handful of times a day to several times an hour. When new concerts are announces we have been receiving massive inquiries at once. The drawback to all this is that it seems that the new wave of guests only want the $250/night experience despite having paid less than half of that for a unit. When we receive an email from an upset tenant criticizing us for having a futon in the living room despite it being the very same futon that is visible in the listing photos we know that the market here has changed and that we need to get on the bandwagon. Guests, of course, have a right to want what they want and economy lodging does not appear to have a place in Murphys anymore. In this sense, we are not taking new bookings until we have changed out some furniture and made a few improvements. For offering is an : one of the Murphys Wine Cottages. This cottage is in a complex of six units on Jones Street in downtown Murphys. With an "old west" theme, the cottage is comfortable with a bedroom, bath and living room. The cottage boasts its own porch, sitting garden, and parking spaces. The cottage has a small kitchenette with pots, pans, coffee pot, microwave, fridge, linens, and a tv with dvd player. We offer a comfortable cabin that we hope you will enjoy. The cottage is truly in downtown Murphys; the four leaf clover, at the creek, is 165 feet from the driveway to the cottage. You are steps to Alchemy, wine tasting, and restaurants.. really!!!! We have been operating vacation rentals in the area for 15 years and operate Calaveras County's largest rental serving several hundred guests per year. Hank Hill says: Propane is awesome. Rental owner says: Propane isn't free.
  • Our stay at the cottage was awesome. We had an issue with the water heater but Scott was very quick to respond and dealt with the issue perfectly. It all worked out and I'm very satisfied with how it was handled. The cottage is older but it is spotless and offered everything we needed. It had the basic essentials to cook an easy meal. The bed was comfortable and there are space heaters to keep the cottage toasty. The location is so convenient! You can walk to everything. We would definitely stay here again. Murphys is such a cute small town and this cottage was perfect and would recommend this place to everyone.

    Diana2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Cottage was awesome. A lot better than the pictures! Quick response from Scott. Great walking distance to down town. Great pizza place right around the corner. Quiet, off the beaten path. All around its a great place to stay.

    Kristen2020-03-07T00:00:00Z

    Vanessa2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

    Lorenzo2020-02-27T00:00:00Z

    Dustin2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend staying here. Perfect location to experience the charm and wine Murphys has to offer (with in walking distance of Main Street). Its quaint and comfortable and Cant beat the price too!

    Jenna2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Very awesome location. This is a cozy little cabin that has very close parking and is not fancy but feels safe and comfortable. Outstanding access to Main Street, wine tasting and shopping in Murphys. Super easy check in. Professional owner and prompt communicator.

    Michele2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location! It was really cold when we were there and the space heaters worked perfectly to keep us warm in the cottage. We didn’t spend much time in the cottage except for sleeping but it had everything we needed and we will definitely be back.

    Roof-top attic room converted to a cute studio in our downtown Angels Camp Victorian home with a private entrance. Walking distance to shops, restaurants, creek and a short drive to wine tasting in downtown Murphys. Just over 2 hours from Yosemite or Lake Tahoe and a little over an hour to Bear Valley and Lake Alpine. Great central location makes it easy to access so many great places in Northern California.
    The Nest is a converted attic which has a full bathroom. We are located right off Main Street in Historic Angels Camp and try to provide as many amenities as possible.
    We live in Downtown Angels Camp. Walking distance to the movie theater, restaurants, shops and the local bar. There is also a cute park less than a 10 minute walk away and creek access also about a 10 minute walk. Although we're in downtown, it is still very quiet and peaceful in the evenings. Nice neighborhood.
  • Jessica's place has California history within walking distance. The famous Chicken ladder is "next" door. The amenities are wonderful

    Thomas2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect little nest with a special touch, very comfortable and cozy with great snacks - I loved the Keurig

    Troy2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Cute, homey attic room with many feel good touches! House is centered in town, close to everything, parking across street and walking uphill little tricky for a older person but definitely worth the climb 😍

    Sandra2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • No disappointments during our stay here for the second time. The Nest is the best!

Amenities (coffee, water, candy, nutrition bars) in room, dog treats for the 3 dogs which you may encounter. Very esponsive host. Overall, what I expected. Great value.

  • Great spot. Cozy space and walkable to everything in Murphy's downtown, you really can't ask for a better place. My partner and I have stayed multiple times and never been disappointed. Comfy bed and space heaters galore to keep you warm.

    Nick2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Quiet, cheap, and very close to Main street.

    Mike2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The Garden cabin was so cute. I stayed for a work trip and it had everything I needed to be comfortable! The kitchen was perfect and had all the dishes and utensils I needed to cook. The bed was so comfortable! The space heaters did a perfect job at keeping the cabin nice and toasty too! The room even had a TV with access to Netflix which was such a nice touch! I hope to stay there again for work and to bring my partner there for a vacation sometime in the future!

    Erin2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic getaway very close to downtown. Great value! Super host! Easy check in, great communication. Great water pressure in the shower! Comfy bed. Everyday surfaces were clean, lots of amenities. I would call this the Historical Garden Cottage. It does need a lot of updating, there are some mold issues around the tub and bathroom windows. Some things are held up or repaired with string and duct tape, butI would stay here again.

    Chris2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great & affordable stay in Murphys at Scott's cabin. Scott was very easy to communicate with before and during the stay, and the cabin felt like the perfect mix of a quiet and secluded getaway while being a stone's throw away from some great food & wine on Main Street.

    Stephanie2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I had a lovely day at Scott’s cottage. The cottage was small but perfect for the two of us and only a stones throw from the main strip of Murphy’s.

    Izaac2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • For the price, it's a great value, especially when you consider the location is conveniently located near Murphy's Main Street. We booked the room the same day as our evening stay. Scott let us know that there was a problem with the bathroom doorknob that he was arranging repair and offered to put us up at another cottage if we felt it was a problem. We simply wanted a place to crash after a long evening, and it wasn't an issue - we made do. For our needs, it was perfect! It really feels like a little cottage nestled in the woods, but in walking distance of everything: shops, restaurants, wine tasting, etc. You also have the option of using a microwave, toaster, stove, coffeemaker, etc. Also left us a few munchies which we were happy to enjoy! Highly recommend. Thanks Scott!

    The Studio is what we call it because for many years it was an art studio, a space for creative energy to flow. It's actually a full apartment with kitchen, bath, laundry. It's nestled in the trees in a quiet neighborhood on the Stanislaus River. I can't host pets.
    The Studio is in a quiet, family-oriented cul-de-sac neighborhood on the edge of the Wild-and-Scenic Stanislaus River Canyon, close to cross country and downhill skiing, the Sierra towns of Murphys and Arnold, wine tasting, art galleries, and music events.
  • It was nice

    Jacob2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

    Open now a Vacation Cottage inspired by the amazing lakes and fishing spots in Calaveras County. Recreational swimming and cooking trout by a campfire were popular Calaveras activities enjoyed by the earliest arrivals from the gold rush of the 1840's. Building on this tradition (and the fact that we had a bunch of unused fishing decoration from one of our lake properties), we decided to dedicate one of the Murphys Wine Cottages to Lake Tulloch, New Melones, and the various nearby streams.
    Updates For 2019: New for 2019 is Wifi in the whole complex and streaming content to televisions. All cottages have some refurbishments and upgrades. The complex will have new landscaping and amenities for guests to enjoy the grounds as part of their vacation stay in Murphys. Each cottage is stocked with fresh towels and linens wine glasses, plates, flatware, and basic cooking needs. The comforters and bedspreads are washed before every visit. Each stay comes with complimentary espresso pods, bag of coffee, snack, and basic toiletries. The Fishing Cottage has a second television, upgraded decorations, and an upgraded deck for 2019.

Priced well below other lodging in downtown Murphys, we believe you will find this economy to be one of the best deals in town. For a slight step up, please visit our Old West cottage. To be on Main Street, please visit our Retro Unit. Murphys Wine Cottages are truly in real downtown Murphys. The units are located just a few feet to Main Street. Tasting rooms, restaurants, coffee, and stores are less than one minute away by foot. This cottage is in a complex of six cottages on Jones Street in downtown Murphys. This is the first conversion into vacation rental. With a "Fishing" theme, the cottage is comfortable with a bedroom, bath and living room. The cottage boasts its own private porch, sitting garden, and parking space. The cottage has a small kitchenette with pots, pans, coffee pot, microwave, fridge, linens, and a tv with dvd player. We offer a comfortable cabin that we hope you will enjoy. The cottage is truly in downtown Murphys; the four leaf clover, at the creek, is 165 feet from the driveway to the cottage. You are steps to Alchemy, wine tasting, and restaurants.. really!!!! So, the prices are low to get this started and build our clientele. We have been operating vacation rentals in the area for 15 years and operate Calaveras County's largest rental serving several hundred guests per year. When we are done with this project it will be an exciting new place to visit and will be a destination of its own. In the meantime, we want to get people here as we are developing the cottage and the rest of the property.
  • Scott is very responsive. The location of good cottages are amazing. The price is by far the lowest in Murphy's. We'll be back again soon.

    Danielle2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, close to the downtown/main Street area. Easy check in process. Would stay here again.

    Luke2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location! Great value! We had a wonderful weekend staying in a rustic cabin in Murphys. I’d love to go back!

    Mindy2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Loved our stay at the little cottage. You probably can't get much closer than this location. Being off the main street, it's very quiet and peaceful but steps away from the action. We'll be back!

    Amy2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Quaint cottage just steps away from Main St and everything Murphys has to offer...wine, great restaurants, shopping, and did I mention wine? Host is quick to respond, easy check-in and out, parking right by your cottage, a stove, microwave, small fridge, pots & pans, dishes, utensils, a claw-foot tub/shower, streaming service, coffee maker with coffee, it's really a neat place to stay.

    Dawn2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy, clean, in a lovely location :)

    Yesenia2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • The location is perfect for a getaway trip to Murphy’s. We found walking the lot to our cottage day or night to be easy. Parking on site by our cottage was incredibly appreciated. The cottage itself was adorable with mor kitchen amenities than we expected. The space may feel cold when first entering however the space heaters warm up the place quite nicely. The bathroom was pleasantly large in size as well. The cottage was easy to find with a parking spot right next to it. Scott sent the door code making it super simple to access the cottage. The space also had a back porch area with chairs and a barbecue- too cold for us to use our weekend but we’ll definitely remember it! Great place for an amazing price and your within walking distance of everything! Highly recommended!

    Sunny2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place is by far the best little hidden gem we have found. Beautiful setting/property, super friendly and knowledgeable host Ms. Bri. She gave us plenty of recommendations . The owners were super welcoming they gave us a brief history of the property it was very interesting. Everything was very clean the wood burning stove kept us toasty all night and the smell was amazing. It felt like glamping. There is a cave about 4 minutes from the property and everything else is super close only about 8 minutes from Murphy's center. We did share bathroom and kitchen in the main house they were super clean and spacious. We loved and enjoyed our stay wish we would have stayed longer. We will be back.

    Hortencia2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great host and amazing space! Very affordable and accommodating.

    Valentina2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a lovely, cozy stay at the hideaway! The little cabin itself was clean and beautifully put together with a wall full of windows beautiful for watching he sky change for sunrise if you happen to wake up for it. also included a beautiful deck with views of tree covered foothills, perfect for morning yoga or whatever. and Jess has some great local recommendations too!

    Andres2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • It was a great retreat, cozy, relaxing, and very clean. Christine was a super friendly host. Will definitey come back.

    Saied2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Bathroom and kitchen are separate but don’t let that deter you! They’re always accessible and the host is very sweet. It’s a relaxing stay.

    Clarissa2020-01-03T00:00:00Z

    We're open for essential travelers only. Be prepared to justify your need for traveling (1st responders, etc.). Welcome to "Winterfell", our mountain cabin hide-away! Located just off a main road in Arnold, the house has easy access to Highway 4, and from there up to Bear Valley, or down to Murphy's. Our home has three guest suites (bedroom + bathroom) that we rent out. We do not charge cleaning or other fee, are dog-friendly, and have only a one night minimum stay (4 night maximum stay).
    This suite is made up of a large bedroom (one queen bed, plus one folding, roll away single bed), one bathroom, and a private entrance. While there is no formal kitchen, we have set up a small bar area in the bedroom with some very basic kitchen functions - small refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, etc.
    Many of the houses near us do not have full time residents. Some may only have people for a few weeks out of the year. This makes the area very quiet and serene. When other folks are around, they prefer the solitude..... So, please, we ask that our guests not make any loud noises, such as partying, barking dogs, and loud music.
  • Great place, great hosts, clean, awesome location, would come back for sure.

    Matthew2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place. Lynn and Aaron provide a lot of little extras like snacks, toiletries and even beer!!! It is very close to the town and was a great little spot, perfect for two people. Aaron seemed very concerned that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Very nice guy. Would be a little tight for more than two people but it would still work. I definitely recommend this place.

    Aaron2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Winterfell far exceeded our expectations. Aaron is a very congenial host. He told us that he and his wife (whom we didn't meet) try to provide their guests with the amenities they enjoy when they stay at Airbnbs, and it's hard to think of any they've missed, from a well-stocked snack cabinet and fridge (no charges for any of this) to a welcome bottle of wine with appropriate glasses. The bedroom/living room combo is very cozy, and the location was quite close to Calaveras Big Trees State Park, where the hiking is fantastic and the Sequoias amazing, and to Bear Valley Ski Area. (Plus, there's a terrific Italian restaurant, Serafina, a few miles away.) It was almost balmy on the late February weekend we were there, but there was enough snow for us to enjoy snowshoeing at a little higher elevation. We especially enjoying talking with Aaron about his interesting career and his Peace Corps experience. We'd stay here again!

    Martha2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lynne & Aaron's place is clean, cozy, and full of amenities. They are gracious hosts, we will definitely book again!

    Alli2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Super easy to find the house and checkin. Friendly helpful hosts. Beautiful location in any season.

    Elaine2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • All the positive reviews are accurate. It's a wonderful place to stay and the hosts are excellent. We did experience a cold night, but there were plenty of blankets available and Aaron said he'll remedy the heating issue right away. We skied at Bear Valley, which was an easy 40 minute drive away. It was a fun trip that we plan to do again soon, and hopefully get to stay at Winterfell.

    Andrew2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great cozy place to stay. Great host as well, available for any questions.

    Theresa2020-01-22T00:00:00Z

    Relaxing lake retreat, excellent winter ski access; superb hiking to Cougar Rock & Manuel Peak, a 2 mile hike to the view directly behind house on the Arnold Rim Trail. The trail around the private lake is flat and really enjoyable for a quick blast of nature. 25 miles North is Bear Valley Ski Resort for 17 manicured ski trails. Big Trees State Park home of the GIANT Sequoias is about 7 miles North; quaint historical Miwok trading town of Murphys 11 miles South. Gas 3 mi. North
    Cozy place to relax and warm up. Closet Kitchen: fridge, microwave, hot water kettle, bowls & plates, mugs & glasses, silverware, cutting board & knife. Flat driveway, 2 minutes to Big Trees Market - excellent local roasted coffee selection, fancy cheese fridge, nice bakery in there too plus full deli and meat counter.
    The Lake at LakeMont Pines is a private lake fed by 2 creeks of snowmelt. The lake is surrounded by white willow, pine, yarrow, mallows, docks, mugwort - the frogs are varied and the resident ducks are visited by coots, geese, hawks, herons. The fish are curious and rather large, I've seen trout, bass, bluegill. Feel free to use the lake, make sure to borrow the required tags and always return the lake tags to the hook to avoid $10 replacement fee. Fishing is catch and release only and a CA license is necessary of course. During the summer months the beach is replenished with clean sand and the water is like a refreshing spa experience! Please enjoy the pristine lake and waterfalls to the South of the earthen berm. Check out the Arnold Rim Trail (ART), which is just in the back - always refer to a map, it's deceivingly easy to get lost; there are many other trails that converge up there: fireroads, deer trails, can confuse one sometimes. TIP: always hike with a water bottle and a head lamp.
  • Great host, she let us check in early.

    Maria2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

  • Worked great for a quick overnight stay. Central heat cannot be controlled. Living room was a little cold, but the bedroom kept warm and had a space heater as well. Host was helpful with booking. Would stay again!

    Taylor2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed there with my 2 boys. Everyone slept super well surrounded by the beauty of the area. Everything was perfect!

    This vintage airstream trailer nestled at the end of a private driveway near historic downtown Murphys.
    This vintage airstream trailer has been appointed with a mid-century modern design with considerable attention to detail for a comfortable, relaxed vacation experience.
    A several minute walk along a footpath will take you past the one story schoolhouse (whose bell rings each Sunday morning) to historic downtown Murphys, teeming with wine tasting rooms, restaurants, shopping, and the Murphys Creek Theatre. A short drive takes you to nearby Ironstone Winery Concerts, Big Trees State Park, Bear Valley Ski Resort, and the numerous Calaveras County caverns, hiking trails, and Gold Rush communities.
  • My wife and I had a great stay in Mark and Terri's Airstream. The space was thoughtfully put together with a great blend of retro decor and modern amenities. The heating system worked great and kept us cozy on cool February nights. We also liked the easy access to downtown Murphys - about a 5 minute walk down the hill. Would stay here again the next time we're in town.

  • My family and I loved our stay at Matt’s cabin! It was very cozy and comfortable. It rained while we were visiting, and the cabin was perfect for a nice lazy day inside watching movies and playing games. We went out for a hike at Big Trees, and my boyfriend’s 86 year old year old grandma had a great time relaxing while we were out galavanting. The place was very nicely decorated, plenty of condiments in the fridge in case we forgot anything, lovely scenery, AWESOME “fireplace” and good hot water too. Overall I’m suspecting that we will book again with him since we enjoy trips to big trees every few months. Thank you, Matt! 10/10!!!

    Jessica2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This was such a cozy and welcoming space. The beds were comfortable, the heaters worked great, and the kitchen was spacious. Matt was super easy to work with, and he responded quickly! We ended up having 7 people on our trip, and there was more than enough space for all of my friends and I. I would definitely stay here again!

    Angel2020-01-05T00:00:00Z

  • Upon arrival the initial impression was terrific, the ambiance was cozy, cute, and clean. Everything was supplied therefore we were able to utilize house supplies without having to provide or purchase anything. The bedrooms were spacious, and hosted lots of comfortable clean beds. Expect to feel like you’re supplied and are in the comfort of your own home! Excellent stay!

    The Rustic Cottage is perfect for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers with a cottage separate from the main house. Your room features a queen size bed. And, based on your reviews a now private shower, toilet and sink. An outdoor cafe table with two chairs is available outside your door. This cottage is behind the main house and is located on a quiet culdesac, less than a one a block from Murphys Main St.
    Murphys' tiny downtown is the home of over twenty wine tasting rooms within a 20 minute walk and the closest is a 3 minite walk from the Rustic Cottage. Murphys is home to two dozen boutique wineries, within close proximaty, opened year round.
    Murphys area boasts two dozen wineries, welcoming visitors year-round for wine tasting & tours. Most have tasting rooms right on Main St. "A stroll down tree-lined Main Street transports visitors back to the mid-1800s with buildings bearing thick stoned walls, iron shutters, and pastoral gardens with white picket fences. Murphys’ rich and colorful past came alive in 1848 when John and Daniel Murphy established a trading post and gold mining operation in the area that is now their namesake. True entrepreneurs with the luck of the Irish, they were a part of the very first immigrant party (Stephens-Townsend-Murphy) to successfully bring wagons over the Sierra in 1844, paving the way for westward migration." -from Murphys Queen of the Sierra History Page
  • This is THE cutest and most convenient place ever! So cozy and private - close to everything!

    Alicia2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • It is an adorable cottage, but it is a shed that has been renovated, it was very cute, but if you go in the winter months bring extra blankets because it was pretty cold. No TV but that was OK with my husband and I

    Stacey2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • This hidden gem is now our go-to spot whenever we visit Murphys. Harold's property is beautiful and so quiet. It's not on the main street in town, but it's about a 10-minute walk into town along a quiet and safe street. The unit itself is perfect for two people. The bed is comfortable, the bathroom is clean and the hot water heats up really quickly. I really appreciated having so many places to hang our clothes and jackets, so we weren't tripping over our stuff all weekend. The dutch door and charming window lets in plenty of air and light during the day, but the cottage stays warm during the cold weather months with a small but powerful heater. There wasn't a kitchen, but the room is equipped with a coffee pot, glassware, and creamer. There was also a hair dryer, extra towels, extra blanket, map of the area, and local menus. All in all we absolutely loved this place, and will definitely stay here again on our next trip!

    Kera2019-11-03T00:00:00Z

  • Lovely and quaint cottage! Quick walk into downtown. Harold is sweet and attentive! We’d definitely stay again! 😊

    Dana2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second stay with Harold. The location is the best and we feel at home there. Can’t beat the price and safe location at the edge of town. We love being able to walk everywhere from Harold’s cottage.

Ideally located in the Stanislaus National Forest, we are 30 minutes from Bear Valley Ski Resort to the east, and 20 minutes from the charming gold rush town of Murphys, with its wine tasting rooms, boutique shopping and gourmet restaurants. Also nearby are Columbia State Park, a preserved gold rush community; Calaveras Big Trees State Park and its giant sequoias; and Railtown 1897 State Historic Park, not to mention golf, winery tours, cave tours, zip lines, horseback riding and more! Yosemite Valley is about 2.5 hours to the south. Arnold weather is ideal for all-season fun! The warmest months are June through September, with average temps in the perfect upper 70s - low 80s range. The cabin is shady and cool, and the lake water temp is in the mid-70s. Ski season normally begins in December and carries through mid-April. Because we're at 4,000 feet, we get the postcard views without the heavy snow load farther up the hill, which means easier access during the snow season. And spring and fall are normally in the 55 - 65 range -- perfect for checking out the fall foliage in Ebbetts Pass, or visiting Yosemite without the crowds.
  • This was our second stay at Elis’s cabin. Our family of 4 had a wonderful weekend playing in the snow (only 30 minutes away) and exploring the area. Highly recommend!

  • This was our second time staying at this sweet cabin. It was just as lovely as the first time. We will be back again, for sure!

    Gretchen2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Warm, cute and cozy. Perfect location for a family skiing at Bear Valley.

    Anj McBeath2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • We loved how cozy and stylish the cabin was. The fireplace was the best thing ever. The beds were comfy and the blankets were so dreamy. We stayed warm all night. We took a morning trip to Bear valley and loved walking at Alpine Lakes (we pulled our 2.5yo on a sled when he got tired). We also drove into Murphy’s for dinner which was a great decision. Location is great and the host is excellent and very prompt with communication. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!

    Tania2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Elis was super responsive with communication. Place is cozy and nicely decorated. Kitchen has everything you would need. We enjoyed the provided entertainment- dvd’s, board games, books and even toys! Will definitely stay here again.

    Pearl2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Elis was amazing to work with and was very prompt with responses. Her home was fantastic and I loved the fact that we were allowed to clean up after ourselves making the experience more affordable. We will be back for sure.

    Christopher2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Hi, book this cabin!! Don’t even think twice, everything was clean and very organized. You automatically feel like your home away from home. Our host was very informative and so nice to work with. We couldn’t be happier with how our stay went.

    Welcome to Murphys, CA, Queen of the Sierras. Our studio is an easy, picturesque walk to beautiful downtown Murphys. We hope you will enjoy the cozy accommodations and quiet space at the end of a day of exploring all that our town has to offer.
    Our studio, in a quiet, wooded neighborhood, has a private entrance with a coded entry for self check-in. The bed features a new "Tuft and Needle" queen mattress and soft bedding. The room is furnished with coffee/tea service, a wardrobe, small desk, TV, and charger plugs at the bedsides. Guests with mobility issues should consider that there is a stair to step up into the comfortable bathroom and steps that lead down the beautiful pathway. We live in the house attached to the studio, and appreciate guests who enjoy the beauty and quiet of our neighborhood just up the road from the Murphys Hotel. Rowdy guests should book elsewhere. Our two friendly dogs are fenced off from the studio side of our property. Our calico cat is a mountain explorer, but she is not allowed to venture into the studio.
    Our town has so much to offer visitors looking for a getaway destination and our studio provides a restful space at the end of a sightseeing day. Our neighborhood is quiet and wooded.
  • Such an amazing stay! The place is adorable and sparkling clean with so many thoughtful touches, like a card and a bottle of wine waiting for you when you arrive. There's also a smart TV with all the fun channels, a drawer of bathroom essentials in case you forgot anything and a fun record player. It's just a short walk into town but far enough away where you feel totally secluded. This is definitely our new spot whenever we come back to visit Murphys! :)

    Caitlyn2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect stay! Lori and Travis have made hosting an Airbnb an art! They have thought of everything a guest could possibly need or want. The studio was sparkling clean and in a quiet location and a short walk to town. We enjoyed all the thoughtful touches, the comfy bed, easy check in/out and great communication. We look forward to returning soon!

    Karen2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lori’s home was absolutely perfect. We walked downtown and enjoyed a night together before coming back and enjoying their gifted wine and listening to their records! The home was clean, and absolutely adorable. We would love to return!

    Hailey2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Very quaint!

    Mike2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Location was very close to downtown Murphys (a little under half a mile walk) which was very convenient for wine tasting on main street. There were many small touches that made us feel welcome - such as a hand written card, bottle of wine, and info to the local sites on the bedside table. Instructions were clear and check in was a breeze. We would stay again if we were back in town!

    Julie2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I loved staying here. The place is absolutely spotless and quiet. Lori left us a chilled bottle of wine and fresh coffee. We enjoyed the walk into town. We would definitely stay there again.

    Christina2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Before even booking Lori and Travis were very responsive and extra accommodating. When we arrived at Sleepy Pines, it didn't disappoint. We even arrived to a few thoughtful gifts! It's a short walk to Main St - perfect for your morning walk or to walk off some of the delicious food you will eat downtown. It has everything you will need for your stay. Looking forward to our return trip!

    Zachary2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Lori and Travis place was amazing!! I loved everything about it so cute all her little touches was just perfect, my favorite was the old record player and her records !..I loved that it’s very close to downtown ! We definitely will be coming back

  • Location, location!! Such a great spot, 1 block from the most popular part of town. Tastefully done, great communication and the chilled sparkling wine & snacks on arrival - icing on the cake! Super comfy bed. Most of all, I loved the quiet mornings on the front porch - hot mug of coffee in my hands (there’s a Keurig) soaking in the morning sun, grapevines to my left and and the sounds of birds chirping welcoming the new day. Thank you Rod! We will be back!!

    OFFERING DEEP DISCOUNTS TO THOSE WHO BOOK A RESERVATION WHILE WE ARE GETTING THE UNIT READY. A refurbishment is currently in progress!!! Coming in March- THE NEW OLD WEST. We are proud to announce the 4th cottage in the Murphys Wine Cottage complex will go live beginning Irish Day 2020. This is a work in progress that we will have ready. Click on the other Wine Cottage listings to get an idea of how this is going to look and read the further description below.
    Why is it the "new old west??" Well, we already have an Old West Cottage. However, now that we are in possession of this one, and are scrubbing it up and getting it ready, we think this two bedroom cottage with the pine slats on the walls looks better as an "old west" place and will turn the old "old west" into something else. We have been in the vacation rental business since 2002. In 2019, we hosted more than 1,400 guests in our vacation properties. We expect to get close to 2,000 this year! Please see our other listings to see what these cottages are all about. This cottage will be consistent with the others in the complex. The New Old West will have a queen bed in one bedroom and either a queen bed in the second bedroom or a twin over full bunk bed. Until we know for sure, we will not book more than a 4 person stay. The cottage features a comfortable seating area, dining capabilities, and all of the kitchen amenities one would need for a short stay. We hope you will give us a try and we will update the pictures as soon as we have have it ready around March 1 with bookings to take place approximately 2 weeks later.
    This complex is right downtown in Murphys. You are literally footsteps away to tasting rooms and restaurants. This is really downtown and you wont need to do much driving. If you go to Ironstone, the cottage is just a single mile away,

  • This place is an absolute gem. Fantastic location for food, outdoor activity, wine, and the hot tub was pretty amazing as well.

    Kimberly2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Ben's place. The hot tub was great and the house was packed with basic food and cooking supplies which was awesome.

    Ashleigh2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Everything you could ask for and more! Would definitely stay again!

    Amber2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Ponderosa cabin! We spent a day and a half hiking around Calaveras Big Trees State Park, and another day snowshoeing in to the mountains near Bear Valley ski area. What a beautiful location! The cabin itself was clean and comfortable. The wood burning stove really heats the place up, and it was nice to have a full kitchen. The living area is quite small, and might feel crowded for 6 adults, though there are 3 beds. The cabin is fairly secluded and has some woods around it, so it would be perfect for a family with elementary aged kids! The hot tub was a nice bonus too. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again!

    Lindsey2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Ben is a great host! His place is cozy! His response time to email questions is great!

    Jacquie2020-01-20T00:00:00Z

    Shala & Jeff2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Ben's cabin has it all and more! Sparkling clean cabin & added bonus of the hot tub (and hot upon arrival, so it was the first thing we did!). Place is spacious yet cozy, has every amenity one could want and hope for. In the unlikely event you might need something extra, stores and shops are close by (walking distance if you wanted to venture by foot). Wish we could have stayed longer, but it was a short mother-daughter trip and was absolutely perfect. Ben has a binder complete with instructions for household use (super helpful), and information about local interests (restaurants, winter & summer activities - you name it, he's thought of it). Espresso Bistro a fantastic spot for breakfast if you wanted to go out, though unnecessary because the cabin is well suited for cooking-in). Thank you, Ben, for opening your home and being a super host. Looking forward to visiting again and staying longer.

    Jaymie2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy little place. Close enough to everything but far enough away that you don’t hear all the noise. My family really enjoyed all the different games and art supplies that were provided. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

    Light, airy, quiet upstairs apartment with private parking near Arnold shops and restaurants, short drive to Murphys wineries and dining, skiing, outdoor adventure, Calaveras Big Trees, Mercer Caverns, and more!
    The apartment is the upstairs unit, but only 2 steps up from the parking area to the front porch. The feel is open and airy, very comfortable with a new bed and a fold-out twin bed in the bedroom, very comfortable couch, dining table and small kitchen. It is perfect for everything from a romantic get away, or an outdoor adventure trip with the kids!
    Arnold is a lovely small town with plenty of outdoor activities! White Pines Lake is about a 5min drive and is great for swimming, kayak, SUP, or fishing. Calaveras Big Trees is a 9min drive up the highway where there is a lovely visitor's center, self-guided hikes through the north and south grove, river access and many forest adventures! Visit Ebbetts Pass Sporting Goods (walking distance) right across the highway, or SNAC across from the Big Trees shopping center for all the gear you need! Arnold has several delicious spots to eat including Sarafina's Italian Kitchen (within walking distance), and Dogwood Cafe. More mainstream fare in town includes Subway, Round Table Pizza, and Arnold Chinese Food. Big Trees Market is our grocery store, but for sundries, you can find most of what you need at the Dollar General. There are several brochures in the cottage to let you know ALL of the options locally available!
  • Awesome little spot close to big trees. We hiked around, cane back and walked to dinner. Such a nice cozy place for a weekend trip, we drank tea and played some of the games they had. Zero complaints and honestly better than the pictures show. We will be back!

    Nicole2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great location! Is right in the middle of everything in Arnold and a short drive from Bear Valley. We all enjoyed the board games that were there and were very comfortable throughout our whole stay. Very responsive to any questions. Stocked with extra blankets and all the essentials. Awesome place, owner, and stay

    Andrew2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Cute and cozy little cottage. Perfect for a quick getaway to take kids to play in snow. Clean and nice decor. Kids had fun playing with coloring books too! Kris was easy to communicate with and quick to respond. Would definitely stay again if ever in the area!

    Katrina2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • We are repeat guests at Kris' place.

    Ranjeet2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Good location at East end of Arnold, spacious, comfortable, good selection of books and games. Full kitchen with basics.

    Ranjeet2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • We are a family of four and we stayed for four nights at Kris's place. It exceeded our expectations on size and amenities and we were quite comfortable during our stay. Our purpose was to have a place to stay while we played in the snow further up the mountain. Mission accomplished and then some because we really enjoyed the place. Some advice for others: we didn't use the sofa for sleeping, but instead brought a camping cot for our son, while our daughter used the futon style chair. Also, if you want to eat at the Italian place that's literally a one minute walk away, make a reservation! We didn't and were disappointed. :-( We also did the 500 piece puzzle that's there, but it does take a team effort and a couple of hours. All in all, we would definitely stay again, we loved it!

    Faisal2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Clean, no frills place located at walking distance to many restaurants in Arnold. Totally does the job for the money. Might be somewhat less space than needed for a family of four (still slept us), but just right for 2-3 people to stay overnight.

    Alex2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Kris was a great host and very responsive. The cottage was very clean and well-maintained. Would go back anytime.

    Great, cozy place. Perfect for a romantic weekend away or a place to relax after skiing, hiking or sight-seeing. Lots of stuff to do locally. Or, just stay in and enjoy the peaceful wooded setting.
    Private studio with separate entrance. Comfy queen bed; full bathroom. Has a microwave, mini fridge, TV, DVD player, cable and wifi. A perfect weekend getaway!
  • Great location, private and cozy. Beautiful yard. Recommended!

    Katherine2019-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Convenient place to crash after a day of skiing and grabbing dinner on the way down the mountain. Nothing fancy but gets the job done. Victoria was very communicative and super quick to answer questions.

    Claudia2019-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • I’m hesitant to let others know this gem exists! We want to keep it to ourselves. :) Victoria is a wonderful, thoughtful, host who replies immediately. The room is private and peaceful in a wooded community. It’s a romantic and sparkling clean get away with a newly remodeled bathroom. The bed is comfortable and the heater works great. Everything you need is right inside the cabin. We stayed two nights and skied at Bear Valley which is a short jaunt up the hill. Victoria reccomended Apple Hill for breakfast pastries (delicious)! 5 star reccomendation all around.

  • The place was extremely clean and Victoria was extremely hospitable. It is a perfect stay for a ski trip to Bear valley.

    Quiet mountain retreat on the backroads of California's foothills. Truly away from it all. Star gazing, sunset viewing, wine sipping, and wildlife viewing are just a few of perks of staying at the retreat. Experience nature as far as the eye can see. Mountain serenity at its finest. The nearby town of Mountain Ranch offers beautiful scenery and the convenience of a full grocery store, a gift shop as well as a charming park full of aged walnut trees for your own or your families enjoyment.
    Enjoy this lovely, mountain studio with views on all sides of California's historic Gold Country. This cabin is equipped with a kitchenette including sink, microwave, four burner stove, and mini refrigerator. A queen sized bed and a queen sized sleeper sofa can accommodate up to 4 guests. The cabin is spacious and equipped with all basic supplies for cooking and enjoying a stay of a couple of nights, a whole week, or more! There is a full ensuite with sink, toilet, and large shower. All bedding and bathroom linens are supplied for your convenience. The large covered deck nearly doubles the living space in this cabin and invites you into the natural setting to enjoy the mountain air and take in the spectacular sunsets. The 40 acres of property and surrounding natural lands are perfect for exploring. All the attractions of the California foothills surround you from world renowned wineries, fantastic golf courses, and boutique shopping, to national parks, skiing and hiking, and historical landmarks. There is something for everyone at this mountain retreat, including those who wish to simply stay on the property and enjoy the peace and beauty of country living!
    Remote location. However we are three miles from the Historic, Estb.1848, small town of Mountain Ranch, population 2,000. There is a Post Office, nice community owned park (with a ball field, children's playground, picnic tables, lots of shade from walnut trees), Senders Market & Hardware, hours 7AM-8PM, (surprisingly well stocked, great deli, beer, wine, daily deli specials, i.e. tri-tip or ribs on Fridays, tacos on Tuesdays). Gas Station, hours 7-7. Blunder Inn, local pub, music, drinks pool table & some food. Heart of Gold Cafe, with WiFi, limited hours. Candle & Gift Shop, owner is candle maker. Stars at night, wild life, sunrise & sunsets, quiet & peaceful.
  • Nice very quiet studio unit on top of a hill in the foothills. You get there through some country backroads that offer a very scenic drive. The top of the hill provides a wide view of the hills and new life after some fires that happened years prior. Tons of birds and small wildlife. Contacting Pierre was easy and was a thoughtful host! A great semi-isolated getaway (there is another unit nearby) with some technology access. Slow internet speed (expected) but great tmobile service (unexpected) despite not having great service on the way there. Warm comfortable bed and great tea options. I would definitely love to visit again!

    Luis2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Pierre was a great host - very responsive and friendly. The location was just what we wanted - a quiet place with a beautiful view of the mountains. The cottage itself was cozy and had all the essentials for our weekend getaway. We’ll probably be back!

    Remi2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely gorgeous location. Not far from 2 highways and on the top of its own little mountain range with great views.

    Parker2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful spot, very clean, thoughtful touches - gourmet coffee, turned down sofa bed, chocolates, etc.. Pierre's communications where always timely and clear. The nearby town" of Mountain Ranch (5-minute drive) has a very nice market (free coffee in the am) and the Heart of Gold Cafe (not open for breakfast) - great service, good food, and great value.

    Kurt2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage was cozy and clean, and it had the necessary amenities. We had a wonderful stay there.

    Vishal2019-12-31T00:00:00Z

    Shreyas2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful private remote getaway. Very responsive hosts for a last minute checkin. I was pleasantly surprised at how charming it wa as with excellent cooking amenities for a cottage. My only regret is that I wasn't able to use the nice stove. It was super quiet which I appreciated very much. Sparkling clean as well!

  • Nice place, simple, clean and hassle free

    Jennah2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • A cozy cabin perfect for my family! The cabin had all of the amenities needed to make us feel like we were at a home away from home.

    Marisa2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We love the Arnold area. During our visit we had rain, snow, hail and sun all on the ‘same’ day. Crazy. Great cabin. Loved Colin’s ‘what to do’ suggestions. Hope to go back!

    Myra2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Colin's cabin was perfect for our family! Everything was clean and nice and working well. Comfortable beds, great lounge for movies and fire, big porch. Kitchen and dining table worked well. Master bedroom was good for us and baby, the other room with double bed and bunk bed was perfect for our two boys - could've even fit another kid or two. Check-in was smooth and Colin very responsive. The neighborhood was just ok, but we were in off-season with the lake drained yet no snow on the ground. I imagine it'd be different with either of those natural amenities. Still we made it up to Bear Valley one day, and another day hiking Big Trees. A perfect weekend. Thanks Colin!

    Bt2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We are a family of four with two little kids and had a wonderful stay at Colin's place. The cabin is very cozy and clean. There are lots of board games, kids' books - in general, a well-equipped place to stay. This time we had no snow and Colin sent some good information about what to do - moaning cavern, the surrounding lakes, the dam, etc. Great host, great place.

    Peg2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • The photos don’t do this place justice! It’s very cozy and perfect for a family or two! We really enjoyed our stay at Colin’s place! Thank you!

    S22020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin was cute and in a good location. Nice large deck for hanging out. Owner provided wood which was a nice touch. Very clean as well! Thanks for having us:)

    Matthew2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Colin's Place is very comfortable, well appointed and clean. We had a wonderful stay, and look forward to coming back. Close to the Lake and Country Club. Quiet and peaceful setting. Highly recommended.

    The Private Suite is perfect for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers with a private entrance and lockable door to main house. Your suite includes bedroom with queen size bed, shower, sepatate toilet, sink and sitting room. My home is located on a quiet culdesac, one block from Murphys' Main St.
    Murphys' tiny downtown is the home of over twenty wine tasting rooms within a 20 minute walk and the closest is a 3 minite walk from the Private Suite. Murphys is home to two dozen boutique wineries, within close proximaty, opened year round.
    Murphys area boasts two dozen wineries, welcoming visitors year-round for wine tasting & tours. Most have tasting rooms right on Main St. "A stroll down tree-lined Main Street transports visitors back to the mid-1800s with buildings bearing thick stoned walls, iron shutters, and pastoral gardens with white picket fences. Murphys’ rich and colorful past came alive in 1848 when John and Daniel Murphy established a trading post and gold mining operation in the area that is now their namesake. True entrepreneurs with the luck of the Irish, they were a part of the very first immigrant party (Stephens-Townsend-Murphy) to successfully bring wagons over the Sierra in 1844, paving the way for westward migration." -from Murphys Queen of the Sierra History Page
  • We loved staying at Harold's place! Harold was super friendly and check in was easy. I let him know you would be later than 3 since we planned on having dinner in town before checking in and he let me know that was totally fine. I really appreciated all of the communication. While it is close to a bunch of wineries, if you plan on walking, crossing Highway 4 can be a bit of pain when there is a bunch of traffic. There is no where to keep food cold as others have said, so don't plan to bring food. The place is great for 2 people. Would stay here again if in Murphys!

    Kimberly2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Easy to find. Harold was very nice. Was a quick weekend visit to golf and do some wine tasting. His location is very close to Main St in Murphy's.

    Jamie2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Harold’s place was clean and cosy and a great place to explore Murphys from. His house is a 5-10 minute walk to the main street where there are beautiful shops and lots of wine tasting rooms. Harold was really friendly and helped us settle in.

    Alastair2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Nice little place. Great for the price. Walking distance to all the good places on Main Street.

    Robert2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • Harold's place was nice, clean, and cozy! Its walking distance to a lot of restaurants and downtown Murphy's. It doesnt have a microwave oven or refrigerator/freezer so dont bring any food. The bed was super comfortable!

    Darrell2019-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great location with an amazing host!

    Michelle2019-05-19T00:00:00Z

    Glen2019-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • Harold’s place was quaint and comfortable. He was quick to respond and very hospitable. It’s great for a single person or a couple traveling! I would definitely stay there again!

  • Everything you are looking for in an air bnb! Nicki’s home was sparkling clean. The location was easy to find and no trouble parking our huge car. The whole home has been updated beautifully and is very comfortable.

    Caroline2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

    Kelly2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Beautifully furnished house. Great atmosphere. Very friendly hosts. We had a wonderful time.

    Michael2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Nicki and Larry's place was BEAUTIFUL. Nicki gives clear directions how to get there and it is really nice in nature. The house is very spacious and the outdoor deck is nice to sit and enjoy the scenery. We loved staying there -- it was very clean and we also particularly liked the sky lights in the bedroom. It was nice to wake up and see the trees in the skylight window. I would definitely recommend the place, it's about a 10 min drive on the 4 to get to Murphys and it's also close to other spots like Arnold and Calaveras Big Trees park. Nicki is very communicative and overall the experience was great, she made sure we had what we needed.

    Agnes2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Nicki and Larry are amazing hosts - communications and checkin and out fantastic. They are thoughtful and caring people. Hathaway House is beautiful- a real home away from home. Kitchen really well fitted out with absolutely everything you would need. Space great. Deck and outside area is peaceful and relaxing. The furnishings are top notch. Cleanliness really good. We explored stanislaus forest with hikes and picnics. There are many vineyards to visit. Lots of restaurants in the area. It’s a touch of paradise to stay there and enjoy the beauty of the surroundings I hope we can return one day on another US vacation Barry and Lynette. Sydney AUSTRALIA.

    Lynette2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • This place blew it out of the park for what we were looking for! There was not one thing we needed, that you did not have! Loved the location, so quick to all the spots we visited and what a relaxing and gorgeous home. We can not wait to return!! Thank you so so much for sharing your place with us- a true treasure!

Wifi connected smart TVs in each bedroom plus a 50" flat screen in the living room, 3 Sonos speakers to play your music, kitchen is stocked with plenty of Williams Sonoma cookware plus cast iron skillets and chef grade knives (great place for home chefs), two portable A/C units for hot summer months and forced air heating plus a big fireplace for ski season.

There is a Ninja coffee bar coffee maker for drip or espresso coffee drinks and a nice cuisinart grinder if you prefer to use whole beans. There is also a french press if you prefer.
  • We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again. The cabin was comfortable and beautifully decorated. We were impressed with the well stocked kitchen. The neighborhood was very peaceful. The location was great as well since it is in close proximity to hiking trails.

    Kate2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    Melanie2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing and makes you feel right at home with its modern but cabin feel. It was far greater than expectations and we just had an overall great time and experience! Do not second guess this place cause if you pass on it your missing out big time!!

    Rudy2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our weekend in Arnold at Geoffery's cabin! The bedrooms are big and comfortable--we all slept so well. The kitchen has all the things you'd want it to have including super sharp knives! We went snowboarding during the day but really loved our time in the mornings and evenings cooking, playing games at the big dining table and watching movies together. Would 100% recommend!

    Erica2020-01-27T00:00:00Z

    We offer a organic breakfast with eggs from our chickens upon request. Our straw bale, adobe, solar and sustainable home is warm and inviting. Our ranch has fruit trees and a vegetable garden. We have a lovely view overlooking our lake and the mountains. The location is perfect for wine tasting in Murphys, concerts at Ironstone, site seeing in the gold country, hiking in the Sierra, playing in high alpine lakes, and skiing in Bear Valley. We are about half way between Yosemite and Lake Tahoe.
    This listing is for one bedroom unless you choose 3 or 4 people in the booking reservation, then you get 2 bedrooms. Your private room is located upstairs with a bathroom. The bedroom is lofty and comfortable, with a ceiling fan, window AC unit (in summer), and heater. It is equipped with light blocking blinds on the window facing the sunrise, to help you get some extra rest :-) A comfortable queen bed with lots of pillows ensures that you rest well. A whole house evaporative cooler usually keeps the house cool during the summer and a wood stove keeps it warm in the winter. We would be more then happy to provide you with a farm fresh breakfast with fresh eggs from our chickens and organic veggies, compliments of your hosts and upon advanced request. Your breakfast will include espresso, tea, or hot chocolate, according to your preference. We can also provide you with deep tissue massage, Reiki, and energy healing for an extra cost (contact ahead to book). We can accommodate a third & fourth person in another bedroom that has a double bed. It is upstairs next to the main bedroom and shares the bathroom. It has a ceiling fan but no AC unit. There is an extra charge per person for this room. You can book this extra room by choosing 3 or 4 people in your reservation, when available. If you are only 2 people and you want separate rooms, set the number of people to 3 and it will automatically reserve the second room for you and add the extra charge. Our house is sustainably designed with mostly all natural materials and is super energy efficient. We try to live as lightly on the earth as possible and practice some permaculture methods in our garden. We use all natural cleaning supplies and no harsh chemicals. Our home is part of the Confluence Community, a small group of folks interested in living lightly on the earth and providing opportunities for others to explore deeper connections with self, others, earth, and spirit. We host community events, dances, workshops, and retreats at our community center.
    At night the area is very dark and quiet as we are on a large ranch in the country. You will find it a refreshing contrast with the city. There are three other private residences on the property and a community space. There is a lovely short hike (1/2 mile) up to the ridge behind the house with spectacular views. Our niche country abode is quiet and peaceful, and we hope it leaves you feeling refreshed and relaxed.
  • Christopher and Christine are very kind and hospitable. The room was confortable and quiet. Their property is beautiful, surrounded by breathtaking views

    Gloria Stephanie2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is not to be missed AirBnB experience. The hosts are outstanding, kind and friendly people and I learn so much interacting with the host and appreciate nature more in seeing their daily activities. Their love of nature are transforming experience for city folks like me. I missed this place the moment I drove away going back to bay area hustle. This location is convenient to visit Murphys, Columbia State Park, Columbia College, Big Trees State Park, and it is located very near the Moaning Cavern and the hidden gem of Natural Bridges hiking trail to a cavern with stream of water.

    Hin2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • The Strawbale Home was so comfy, cozy and beautiful! I thought the space was beautiful by design but mostly because of the way it felt. The living space is open and inviting and there's a wood burning fireplace/oven that makes the entire house toasty without being stifling. The view from the house is perfect because you can't see any of the surrounding roads so it really feels like you're out in the middle of no where. Everything is earthy and clean and the bed was everything my body needed from hiking every day while we were there. Christine and Christopher had endless tips to share about any hike or park we wanted to visit. It was so helpful and just something about them made all the suggestions feel like there was no bad choice instead of overwhelming. There is just a calm and peace surrounding them and their home. Truly one of my favorite vacations to date because of where we stayed. Our main purpose for this trip was to visit Yosemite and it was about an hour and a half each way but it was very easy directions and beautiful views and winding roads that made it go pretty fast. I would stay here and do the drive all over again. 10/10

    Chelsea2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • So great we've stayed twice! Excellent hosts and a great location next to the mountains.

    André2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Christine rebooked us at the separate Anahata Lodge property because she and Chris were going to be out of town, at no cost. The property had two separate rooms both to ourselves, a beautifully large community room, and looked over the pond. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances, and the farm fresh eggs were a really nice touch. The space felt inviting and I especially loved how quiet the mornings were. And all for really great value! Will definitely consider going back for a quick getaway from the city.

    Amy2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Christine was very helpful with directions and accompanying in our late check in request. Very thoughtful host. Would definitely stay again

    Athena2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Charming accommodations and location. Chris and Christopher were great hosts. We enjoyed a warm welcome and a peaceful place. Would recommend without hesitation to others traveling to the area.

    Goran2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Christine’s home is very nice for a stay near Murphy’s. It is in a great location for numerous wineries, restaurants and other wellness activities. During our stay we took a little hike up the hill on the property and saw a stunning sunset! That as well as the homemade, fresh from the garden breakfast, including an amazing latte, made our stay even better! Christine and her husband really go above and beyond! The room was cozy and clean and felt private since it was on a separate level of the home. I would definitely stay at Christine’s again when I’m wanting a relaxing weekend away!
