About Karen and Barry Tangney
Barry, originally from New Zealand, met Karen while traveling in his 20's. After getting married and raising three boys in the bay area, they now spend their time between Murphys, Karen's home town of San Leandro, and San Diego. They love the peace and solitude of their place in Murphys, and it's balance with great restaurants, wineries (their favorite is Hatcher), and fun events - there's always something going on if you want to partake. Two of Karen's brothers and family have adjacent properties, so as Karen put it when originally looking at the property "I love Murphys, and I love my family, so how can we go wrong".
Karen and Barry Tangney purchased this Guest house/pension in 2014
Why Karen and Barry Tangney chose Murphys
We traveled frequently to this location staying with Karen's brother across the street, so we always knew we wanted a place close by. One day, Bob, the owner of the property called us over and said it was time for him to relocate - were we interested. Two hours later, a handshake sealed the deal, and we had our little piece of paradise.
What makes this Guest house/pension unique
This really is a unique property. It was apparently originally owned by a landscape designer, and supposedly this property was featured in Sunset magazine at some point (we're still looking for the issue). It really has that natural garden-like feel, and if you happen to be there when the Rhododendrons are blooming, you're in for a treat. It's like a little lush oasis in the middle of oak country, so it really gives you the feeling of being away from it all. Yet, it's so close to downtown Murphys you can be sitting at one of its many great restaurants in under 10 minutes.
