About Jeannine and Jonathon

Come and meet the owners, Jeannine (a French woman) and Jonathon (the winemaker), by stopping at the Winery.

Jeannine and Jonathon purchased this house in 2005

Why Jeannine and Jonathon chose Gold Country & High Sierra

Such a great spot, on Main Street, but away from the crowd. Plenty of parking, not squeezed between other homes, view of vineyards and pasture even cows. A true vacation with hot tub, dipping pool and basket ball court and much more.

What makes this house unique

Do not have to worry about the neighbors. Pets are welcome. Even have an enclosed kennel.

Really enjoyed it.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the convenient location, the setting in the vineyards, the privacy offered by each of the 3 bedrooms (each with its own separate outdoor access), and the large communal kitchen area. Highly recommend.

Large, spacious, bright, comfortable home. Would rent this home again and plan to for our next visit. So convenient to everything on Main Street. Everything included that you will need to spend some time in beautiful Murphy's.

Great Location for a Murphys Get Away

  • 5 of 5

The Villa at the Winery has a great location for visiting Murphys and Calaveras Big Trees. We walked into town for shopping, dinner, wine tasting, and cocktails. We also walked to Ironstone Winery and Indian Rock Winery for picnics and wine tasting. We drove to Mercer Caverns for a fun and interesting cave tour, and we drove to Calaveras Big Trees State Park for a day of hiking and picnicking. It was great to be so close to town, but our evenings in were quiet and relaxing. The villa slept 6 comfortably in the 3 bedrooms, and we had 2 on the couch and futon. The 3 bathrooms were clean and worked out great for 8 people. The kitchen, dining, and family rooms were spacious and comfortable for our group. Several of us enjoyed the hot tub, but the weather was still a little cool for the pool. We had a great time at The Villa at the Winery.

Great location, welcoming hosts and comfy home

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed was there. The kitchen was well-stocked with pots and pans and a killer stove. We even made cookies! The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of linens available. My favorite soap, EO, was in the bathrooms. My son enjoyed the hot tub. And everything was immaculately clean. Would definitely recommend to friends.

Very amazing property that is just a short walk from town

  • 4 of 5

We all absolutely loved the villa and loved the short walk to town and tasting rooms. The girls said the hot water doesn't last long enough, though that is questionable because who knows what their definition of hot is. Overall amazing property
