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.

My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It is very well-appointed, with comfortable beds, top notch linens, and furniture designed for relaxation. The decor is tastefully designed, with unique artistry. The kitchen contains anything one would need and more. There is nice natural light, and the sunroom is a great place to take advantage of this. The garden is beautifully landscaped with many native plants, with spaces to sit, relax, and take it all in. The cottage is convenient to restaurants, shops, and area attractions, but is secluded with definite privacy. We had a glitch on our ride up, and the owner, Kathie, was easily reachable, and very accommodating. Thanks, Kathie!
Great place to call home while away from home.
Secluded cottage was a fantastic base for exploring Northern California and Southern Oregon coasts. We appreciated coming "home" to a real home where we could relax and cook a meal. The BBQ worked well out back while the dogs were able to enjoy the outdoors. The yard and gardens were a pleasure to walk through. As others have mentioned, there are plenty of games and cards in my favorite space, the Sun Room. Having a charge for an additional guest seems excessive. We would return!
We loved the cottage and really wished we could have stayed longer to fully enjoy it. The place is clean, well stocked with everything you would need for a big group (beds, linen, kitchenware), with plenty of space inside and outside. The area has many beautiful places to enjoy nature, like the Jedediah Smith State Park, the Battery lighthouse, the dunes and ocean front. You'll need to drive everywhere, though, even if it's close by, as the locals have private signs everywhere. Would definitively recommend.
Beautiful secluded area close to town.
I really enjoyed the outdoor area here as well as the fire pit and BBQ. We had 6 people stay and it never felt crowded. The owner/manager responded promptly to questions. One side note: the oven does not work and did ruin one of our meals as it barely heated up, and the stove took a long time to cook anything. The BBQ was nice but fairly small for 6 people in the absence of an oven. We did utilize the toaster oven and that was helpful. It was a very relaxing environment and I would stay here again!
Thank you for your feed back. We were not aware that there were any issues with the stove and oven at the time of your stay. We apologize that one of your meals was ruined. Its unfortunate that you did not make us aware at the time, as we would have fixed it during your stay. After reading your oven troubles in your review, we have since had someone come out and check the oven. They were unable to find any problems other then the ignition switch takes a moment to light. If you could please message me and let me know exactly what problems you experienced with the stove and oven, we will be sure to take care of them. Thank you for staying with us. We hope to have you back again.
Cottage you never want to leave!
Absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!!! The kids and I couldn’t stay away from the beach....they saw some giant redwoods on the highway we we drove when entering California. They were more in love with the ocean. We all had an awesome stay...I’m so jealous about the rhododendrons. Change nothing on the property or cottage, ever🙂� it is perfect!! Thank you Kathie for such a wonderful place. We will be back😀�
Excellent place to stay for visiting coast and redwoods
Family enjoyed nice little cottage. Plenty of space for the 5 of us with a beautiful garden around the home. Enjoyed visiting the Jedediah Redwood State Park and coast.
