About Amy Torgerson

I am a California native from the bay area. I am an avid snow skier, water sports, golfer and outdoor adventurist. That's why Murphy's was so appealing for all my hobbies can happen all in one beautiful place.

Amy Torgerson purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Amy Torgerson chose Murphys

My family purchased the home in Murphy's because we always loved visiting this quaint little town ever since I was kid. Now we get to enjoy all that Murphy's has to offer as adults.

What makes this townhome unique

I fell in love with my Murphy's home for so many reasons! With gorgeous golf course views and nestled among the big trees of Calaveras County you have cabin comfort with all the latest amenities. Great home for a weekend or monthly getaway with a lot of privacy space with a tri level split house. If you want to have dance party and play pool the party room will have you fully outfitted. Complete with a fire place and back deck with views of the golf course. Or if you have kids bedrooms on multiple floors to have adult space as well. House is stocked with all the basics and has kitchen stocked for a chef.

Amy’s house was as described & very comfortable. The location in the neighborhood was nice. Beds were comfy. We enjoyed the decks. We all agreed we’d stay here again in the future when coming to Murphys.

Great house for 2 families!

  • 5 of 5

The house has a lot of room accommodations for 2 families. Instructions for getting into the house were clear. It was helpful to read another guest's comment that the details for getting into the house would be given the night before arrival.

Kitchen was well stocked. The house was clean. We enjoyed having access to Netflix movies. Great time playing pool.

I had a couple questions during our stay and sent Amy a message. Each time I received a response back in a short time and my questions were answered.

Nice quiet location. We would definitely stay here again!

Quiet home with beautiful decor

  • 5 of 5

There were 3 families with us (first snowboarding experience at Bear Valley) and we all enjoyed staying at Amy's townhouse at the end of December, 2017. The house is pretty large for a townhouse (4 bedrooms and 2 extra beds downstairs), is very quiet, and has all the amenities we needed. Throughout the house, it is stylishly decorated with warm and relaxing touch to it. When I had a question and sent a message to Amy, she immediately responded and kindly forwarded the info I needed. Staying at this place definitely made our snowboarding trip special. Thanks, Amy!!

Wonderful Christmas Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven adults plus a 16 month old spent four fun days in Forest Meadows. The house had everything we needed, even cute holiday decorations. The four steps down into the living room provided endless safe entertainment for our granddaughter. We all enjoyed family meals around the large dining table and we stayed up too late every night playing pool! It’s nice being in the end townhouse unit - it’s tucked into the trees with a view of the golf course but with the course closed for the time being it was more like a park that we could wander around in. Forest Meadows isn’t in the town of Murphys but we knew that, and it’s only four miles down the road to town. Thanks to the unusually warm weather we took a nice hike at Big Trees park and of course spent some time in town. Wonderful trip - we would happily stay here again.

Quiet and serene location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Murphys Hideaway with our two adult daughters and son in-laws, 2 year old grandson and 83 year old mother and the home was prefect. We stayed four nights and were there for the wedding of our son that took place in Murphys. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. There was plenty of room in the house for all of us, two decks that over looked the 9th green and towering pine trees. There were plenty of bathrooms which was important as we all had to get ready for a wedding that weekend. We had easy access through the main gate and there was plenty of parking to accommodate us. The grounds are well maintained and the area that the Hideaway is located is very quiet and serene. It was a short distance to travel into Murphys, 10 minutes, and the local grocery store had everything we needed as did the Hideaway for cooking our own meals.

The owner, Amy was a pleasure to work with. Her email replies were immediate and answered any questions that we had. The set up for house access and gate access is perfect especially when traveling with a large group that may be returning to the house at different times.

We definitely would stay at the Murphys Hideaway again.
