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.

wish we had more time here

  • 5 of 5

What a charming spot. We only had a one night stay, and I would plan a trip around this spot in the future. Updated beautifully to keep the charm in tact! Lovely yard, quiet location, well-appointed kitchen.

Misty woods

  • 5 of 5

It was a magical setting. Perfect for exploring the redwoods and beach. Beautiful garden. Plenty of room for our family (4) would accommodate a large family easily. I’ve never seen such beautiful hydrangeas!

Beautiful Cottage in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed here, so there was lots of room and everything was clean and tidy. The cottage had a well-supplied kitchen and we especially enjoyed the sunroom where we ate our breakfast every morning with beautiful views out into the gorgeous gardens and tall trees! The cottage has lots of character which we enjoyed and appreciate. My grandson loved the outside yard to explore in. We enjoyed the close-by redwood trees, the Smith River, the beaches and the lighthouse. The property owners/manager, Julie was very quick to respond and we would definitely stay there again if in the area!

Secluded spot with a great yard for dogs

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property that feels remote but is very close to the beaches and the amenities of Crescent City. We were traveling with out two dogs and loved being able to spend time with them off leash in the fenced yard. Lots of beautiful flowers and plants to enjoy as well. The interior of the house is well-appointed with comfortable beds, a nice living room, and large stocked kitchen. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to stay in Crescent City. Thanks!

perfect little get away~secluded, yet close to everything

  • 5 of 5

this place was perfect!!! comfortable, part of the yard is fenced in for the dogs, on a quiet dead end road, cozy, but roomy. and the price is definitely right. you could hear the ocean and the seals in the distance you could see the stars at night. just a 5 minute drive to the ocean and crescent city and not too much more than that to the redwoods. we got to enjoy watching an otter running along the beach, deer, sea lions and many rural ranches with horses & such, then go off to the trails and the redwoods... sooooo peaceful.... just a spiritual experience within its self. then looking for treasure on the beach... driftwood, rocks, we even found an old boat oar and some shells. the food in town was good too... don't pass on the hawiian bbq... its in a strip mall and looks unassuming, but big portions, good price and yummy! we drove from Michigan for our 30th anniversary so we could see all the western states, and this place everything within reach... missing it already!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We wanted to explore the Redwoods on our trip West from WI & meet-up with some friends from WA. This Cottage was perfect for both of our families to stay in together! It was a short drive to the Redwoods & so close to the Ocean that we were able to explore both during our stay. The only downside (& it really wasn't a big deal) was that there was only 1 shower. We had 9 people in our group & we made it work though. :)
