About the Property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Enjoy a private and cozy cottage for two in the beautiful wine country of Calaveras county.

The cottage is located in historic Douglas Flat, just one mile from the charming downtown of Murphys. The cottage was originally built in the 1960's as the post office for Douglas Flat and is a separate building at Harmon Gardens. The cottage has all the amenities you'll need to enjoy dining on the patio or in the cottage, including coffee pot and coffee for your first days' morning brew. Also, table setting for two, refrigerator, microwave and flat screen tv. Free Wi-Fi that works in our hills, thanks to ATT finally getting it right! And a super comfy new Queen sized bed. New enlarged bathroom with separate toilet and sink from the shower. The shower has great water pressure and perfect height for all those tall folks. And the best part of the cottage, it's private and quiet yet only a mile to busy and hip Murphys.

Enjoy your morning coffee from the cottage deck or stone patio, watching the ever present hummingbirds sipping flower nectar. Or, stroll through the gardens with a glass of wine and enjoy the water ponds. If you're an artist, bring your easel for plein-air painting in the garden. There is always something in bloom or ready for picking at Harmon Gardens.

Nearby Murphys was named the best small town getaway by Budget Vacation Magazine, with plenty of free or nearly free outdoor activities in the area. Downtown Murphys also boasts over a dozen wine tasting rooms and great restaurants.

Enjoy the many vineyards that compliment the beautiful hills in the area or walk to 2 wineries in Douglas Flat. Travel up Highway 4 a short distance to Big Trees State Park for a fantastic outdoor hike and picnic. Bear Valley skiing is an hour away. Ironstone Vineyards summer concerts are just over the hill from the cottage and a new folk music artist venue is Twisted Oak Winery just 2 miles away. Awesome outdoor under the sky venue with reasonable ticket prices! And no traffic jam when you leave the concert. We love the concerts at Twisted Oak.

Privacy yet close to everything, come for a visit at Harmon Gardens cottage.
