Live in the Bay Area and have put our heart and soul into renovating the main house and the guest apartment. We are currently working on our garden so that in the future we can offer a variety of home grown fruit and vegetables.

NICHOLA MARTINEZ purchased this apartment in 2010

Why NICHOLA MARTINEZ chose Gold Country & High Sierra

Needed a place to call our own and a restful place to retire. Added bonus of family across the street and wonderful neighbours.

What makes this apartment unique

Tucked away on a country road, a short walk to Indian Rock Winery and a quick drive to downtown Murphys and many other tasting rooms, shops and restaurants.

Very clean and well cared for!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to get away! Located in a beautiful rural area with plenty of privacy. The owners were friendly and helpful and thought of many generous "extras" to make our stay comfortable and restful in their "in-laws" quarters. Will try to stay there again...for sure!

Great little home!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location. New, simple, and clean apartment. We loved coming home to this wonderful environment each evening. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We did not miss having cable - the wifi was great. Too bad about poor Verizon reception, but that was really all over the Murphys area.

Lovely and Private Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came for a weekend getaway and found the home very nicely appointed with plush towels, comfortable bed and linens, and a complete kitchen with a screened off exterior deck. Nicki was charming and gracious, she checked in but otherwise, we had the place to ourselves. Murphy's is about a mile away and in the neighborhood, there are lots of places to go for a walk. Be prepared for people driving by to wave a greeting. It was a wonderful respite and we'll return.

We LOVED this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful surprise this little place was! Quiet, clean, tidy, comfortable, relaxing. Has a European feel. We would not hesitate to recommend this to other travelers and we actually already have to another couple we met at the Ironstone Winery car show. Enjoyed early morning coffee on the deck as we watched deer stroll the yard below. This is about 2 miles from the center of the town of Murphys. Hard to find lodging in the town of Murphys when they have events in going on. This was worth the 2 mile drive. We will most definitely return.

Owner's Response: Hi Leanne, So sorry we missed you and your Austin-Healey. I bet it was a show stopper! Thank you for such a great review and your recommendations, truly appreciate it. Hopefully you'll be back next year for the show. Until then wishing you the very best. Nicki

Great little quiet getaway just a short distance from town

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our weekend stay here for our anniversary! Very clean, quiet and private. It's just a short drive to town and right by a great little winery (Indian Rock)! The only negative I can possibly think of is the bed was a little uncomfortable but we really enjoyed sitting on the deck sipping coffee and wine. Lots of birds and squirrels to watch under the beautiful oak. Definitely worth checking out.

Priced right

  • 3 of 5


Nice setting, quiet , clean

Pleasant owners who were easy to work with and respected your privacy

priced right

close to downtown Murphys by car

well appointed kitchen


bed squeaked and you could feel other person shifting position-it is a queen ,would be nice if it was a king

no instructions for tv

living room rather dark

accommodations smelled of smoke ( from previous guest who smoked? or from fire in fire place?)

Owner's Response: Oh dear, I am so sorry you did not enjoy our place as much as others have. You and I did have prior communication regarding my concerns that it was a queen size bed and possibly would be a little uncomfortable for you and your adult daughter. I have added a picture to our photo library of the living room with all the lights on at night, I apologize that there were so many switches. Yes, I agree it may have smelt a tad smokey, the couple the weekend before had enjoyed a romantic weekend with a log fire (but rest assured it was definitely not cigarette smoke).
