About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
There is a charming caretaker's cottage on the property and a beautiful old barn. Adjacent to the main house is a stone building with heavy metal doors. In decades past this building served as the bank as well as the village store. You can still see the well that served the community of Douglas Flat.
The house is in the heart of Calaveras County's wine growing region. Stop in at any of the wineries to meet the owners and learn about the local wines. You will be pleasantly surprised.
For a more active day, explore the old mining towns and visit one of the numerous museums for the local lore. Go antiquing or spend the day hiking in nearby Big Trees State Park or skiing at Bear Valley.
Or just enjoy the grounds at Milfiori. Sit on the porch and read a book or stroll through the gardens and try to identify the variety of flowers and plants (the name means a thousand flowers). Take the time to enjoy the slower pace of life in the Gold Country away from the crowds.
Please, no entertaining. Due to the age of the house and extra wear and tear, we cannot accommodate guests other than those already staying at the house. Special events in the garden are possible with prior arrangement. Check with the owner for rates and availability.
The owner is on the premises, available to answer your questions or give suggestions on how to make the most of your trip to the Mother Lode.
Before making a payment, always call the owner at the number listed on our website to make sure your payment instructions are accurate.

About the owner: I retired to the Mother Lode from an active and stressful career in the Bay Area.
Why the Owner Chose Douglas Flat, CA, USA:
I fell in love with Murphys and knew I had found something special when I first saw Milfiori. I love the historical buildings on the property and the beautiful garden. It is magical.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I do antique and vintage sales out of the old "Italian Store" twice a year. You might be able to do some shopping right on the property. And I love to give a tour of the property.
