About Kathie Murphy
My husband is a retired surgeon and I trained dressage horses and ran our breeding and boarding barn. We have a 100 acre ranch outside Ashland where we board dogs, raise sheep and run cattle. We bought the land in Crescent City, cleared it, then built this as a second home. The development of the gardens have been a joy for us.
Why Kathie Murphy chose Crescent City
Crescent city has so many things to see and do. It is also close enough for us to go back and forth. The climate is very different from Ashland and is a welcome change from inland weather.
What makes this House unique
It has given us a place to get all our family together in one place.

It couldn't have been better!
Lovely, secluded cottage and garden. Exceptionally well stocked with everything we needed. This is our 3rd time coming and it continues to please us.
Home away from home feeling
Close to everything, town, woods, and beach. So quiet and well supplied.
Enchanting, comfortable, cozy, lovely, amazing
My mom & I stayed in this adorable cozy cottage for 5 daysfor my moms 75th bday. She was born in Crescent City and raised in Smith River. We came to see how things have changed or not. This cottage made it the most enjoyable for us! It had everything we needed in every room of the house. We got wise a few days in and started picking up food to-go and bringing it back to stay cozy inside,taking our time eating and talking and listening to our fave music. Reading books til we went to bed. The quiet is amazing and the whole property is so sweet and restful. I’d love to come back in the spring to see all those flowers and bushes blooming- there’s so many! It was beautiful w/out every plant blooomimg so can you imagine? Some were still showing flowers... We had great weather. Sept can be that way.
Chilly and sunny. Some fog. We’d go to a beach one day, and a river and forest another day. Drove to the town of SmithRiver & to Brookings another day. Always so happy to get to return to “our cozy cottage”- the phrase of the week.
And because it was so cozy and homey it reminded us of my grandmothers home and so the memories were just everywhere for us which helped to make the trip even more special. Completely loved our time here. We will be coming back. Thank you KATHY💜💜💜
Pretty garden cottage
Walk in the door. Set down your bags. Walk directly to the back of the house and into the sunroom. If the hydrangeas are blooming, you will feel as though you have walked into the middle of a Tiffany window. You may never want to leave this room. Which is a shame, because the rest of the house is very pretty, and has an extremely efficient kitchen and laundry room, as well as a very nice master bath.
Just off Highway 101, easy access to the Smith redwood forest. The host was very gracious.
Cute getaway and lovely grounds
The cottage is a lovely getaway and was a nice retreat after hiking the redwoods. The grounds are wonderful and we appreciated the beauty. Thank you for providing bikes...we enjoyed a great ride from the cottage into town along the coastal road! We did notice kind of a funny smell in the laundry room area? Maybe just the humidity? Overall a very nice cottage.
Serene Cottage Experience
This secluded Cottage is incredible. The pictures don't do it justice. The property is surrounded by forests with clearings so it is easy to relax and saunter through nature. The gardens surrounding the house are full of a wide variety of flowers. The cottage inside features an open concept where visitors can relax and visit whether in the kitchen, the dining table, or the living room. All the while taking in the beauty through the many windows. The atmosphere is so relaxing, I would imagine most guests' blood pressure surely would drop significantly. Recommend that you not cut your stay too short.
