GOOD FRIENDS, GOOD WINES, GOOD TIMES!
Enjoy all the best of vacation getaways at the Rocky Hill Retreat! Located in the historic gold rush town of Murphys, CA, this fully furnished, 1600 square foot home is a perfect getaway for friends and families to gather for precious time together - relaxing, rejuvenating, and enjoying the gold country. If you need an inspirational place to be productive, the Rocky Hill Retreat is also a unique meeting space for small groups.
ALL BRAND NEW!
The Rocky Hill Retreat was reincarnated in 2012 – everything was remodeled and renewed to make it a new home, perfect for your relaxing retreat from normal life.
HEART OF THE HOME
The kitchen boasts granite counters and a friendly island, beautiful birch cupboards, and all new appliances. It’s fully stocked for cooking and eating in, when you don’t want to get out of your slippers. Enjoy the flat screen TV and DVR while you cook. The dining room table seats 10 comfortably so everyone can share their stories from the day. And,the panoramic 8 foot sliding glass door invites the view in even when you're not on the patio.
The spacious living room is the hub of entertainment and relaxation. The gas log fireplace keeps you toasty on chilly mornings and adds the glow to the evening fun. Watch the flatscreen TV, a blueray DVD, or use Roku, play games at the poker table, or cuddle up with a good book beside the fire.
BEDS, BATHS, & LAUNDRY
Each bedroom has its own unique flare. The master has a queen sized pine log bed and brings nature in everywhere. Enjoy your coffee on your own patio, just outside your sliding glass door, or enjoy the beautiful view while you linger in bed with your morning TV. The ensuite bathroom gives you a little sanctuary from the rest of your group. The second bedroom takes you back in time with its full sized, 100 year old bed, antique phone, and a little taste of Spain. The third bedroom sleeps one or two with its trundle bed, and reminds you that you have more time to relax and slow down – you’re on vacation! An additional queen size, elevated inflatable bed is ready for extra guests - great in front of the fireplace!
The two full bathrooms (one inside the master bedroom) each have shower, tub, and vanities for everyone’s needs. The laundry room will be handy for those enjoying a longer stay.
ENJOY THE VIEW & NEIGHBORHOOD
While the inside of the Rocky Hill Retreat is beautiful, it’s the life outside that reveals true beauty. Enjoy the sunrise over the rocky hills from our comfy patio, or or an afternoon glass of wine as the sun casts a magical glow across the meadow and lands on the hillside. Take a walk through quiet neighborhood streets with unique homes, watch the sun glisten on the grape vines, and enjoy the walking trails through the meadow. ***PLEASE NOTE: Due to the drought and wildfires, we request NO FLAME/no grilling until further notice. Also, be aware there is no play area for kids beyond our brick patio. We ask that you preserve our drought tolerant yard by staying on the patio.***
Stroll 5-10 minutes to Main Street, and walk in the footsteps of famous Mark Twain, Ulysses S Grant, Horatio Alger and notorious Black Bart. Murphys, known as the “Queen of the Sierra” and was named “One of The Top 10 Coolest Towns in America” by Frommers. Main Street is the heart of this gold rush town - it's lined with a variety of great restaurants, unique shops, and more than 22 WINE TASTING ROOMS! Yum!
Steps away from Main Street is the community park. Like a scene from a movie, the gazebo welcomes brides and grooms or live bands, the creek rushes by to the delight of children’s toes, and the barbeque pits host good grill for parties, big and small. Town loves to host several events throughout the year, making Murphys a destination for big celebrations or any relaxing weekend escape from your every day life.
WINES and WEDDINGS are part of the fabric of Murphys! The Rocky Hill Retreat is the perfect wedding home base. The bride and her wedding party can enjoy each other and prepare for the big day with all the comforts of home. Or, make this the family headquarters, a spacious place for family and friends to gather, organize their plans, and tell stories of how the big day unfolded. (Extra charge may apply when more than 8 people occupy our home - must be approved prior to confirming reservations.)
Most find all they need for a memorable getaway right here, and never get in the car until they return home. But if you’re looking for adventures, you can find everything from skiing and biking, to world-famous giant sequoias, to boating and golf, to spectacular caverns, to amazing art and horseback riding, all nearby. At 2,000 feet elevation, Murphys climate is perfect all year round – bright springs, warm summers, crisp falls, and a snow dusting or two in the winter (but never have to scoop one shovel!)
The Rocky Hill Retreat is also a great place to hold your team meeting or planning session. Groups do their best thinking when they are in an environment that promotes new perspectives. A professional consultant and facilitator will help design the right process to achieve your goals and can facilitate your meeting so everyone can participate fully. Tools to make your session successful include: flipchart, pens, notepads, printer, projector and screen.
Check out our other home, the RED GATE RETREAT (VRBO #722818). It's just a 5-10 minute walk from the ROCKY HILL RETREAT. Walk to Main Street from each of them. Ask about our Dual Retreat Discount when booking both homes - a great way to accommodate up to 15 retreaters.
WE LOVE RE-TREATERS!
Make the ROCKY HILL RETREAT or the RED GATE RETREAT your favorite getaway, and make it a tradition. We hope to be part of your cherished memories of GOOD FRIENDS, GOOD WINES, AND GOOD TIMES!
