About the Property

A Pleasant, Well Thought-out Home, On A Hill With Wrap-around Decks and View

The upstairs portion of the house is 2BR/2BA home will comfortably sleep 6 for the rate listed. But if you have a big group we can open up the downstairs to sleep up to 4 more people for an additional $100/night (plus $40 cleaning fee/stay). Great views from the master bedroom, living room, kitchen and large wrap around deck. Plenty of parking, plus an adjacent unbuilt lot with a walking garden. Town is walking distance ... It's about 3/4 of a mile to main street, with its 22 wine tasting rooms, gold-rush-era construction, and quality dining.

Notes on capacity: In addition to the king and queen size beds, there is a couch that pulls out to a queen size bed. There is over-flow space available downstairs for 2-4 more people. It is one big room that has 2 twin beds and full size futon that folds out to a bed. There is a third bathroom downstairs as well that has a bath, toilet and sink (no shower at this time). For larger parties (more than 6) ask owners for more details before booking. There is additional rate for opening the downstairs and an incremental fee for cleaning. The downstairs will remain locked unless special arrangements are made with the owners.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a quite neighborhood, and we like to keep it that way. This house is for groups that are going to respect the neighbors and keep the noise level down. If you are looking for a party house, this is not the house for you.

One of the owners works at one of the better local wineries, and is a culinary student, and she can arrange a picnic, food pairing or afternoon of bocce on the winery grounds. We can also provide heat-n-serve in-home meals, although there are plenty of great places to eat in town, as well as a large, fully stocked kitchen. Inside the house, you'll find a binder of suggested local activities, wineries, restaurants, etc.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: We are 4 good friends who have spent a lot of time traveling together. We've rented a lot of homes in those travels, and know what works and what does not. Two of us live in the Bay Area, and two of us live across the river in Columbia. One of us recently quit her corporate job to pursue a Chef Certificate and work in a winery. We know a few of the local wine makers, so if there's anything extra you need to make your visit to Murphys complete, just let us know.

Why the Owner Chose Murphys, CA, USA:
We spent so much time in Murphys that we finally decided it was time to buy a house here. We've stayed in several vacation rentals in Muprhys, and when we saw this house, we knew it was for us, and we think you'll love it too. It would be a great home for a couple of couples to spend a weekend, although it will comfortably accommodate more.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home was clearly built with love. Utilizing the best home-builder in the area, this is the home in the neighborhood that everyone asks about. Filled with wood-working details, it sits on a hill overlooking the rest of the neighborhood. From below, it looks like a plantation-style home, from within, it looks like an old-timey gold rush home. On chilly days, you can sit in front of the fire or head to the slopes; on nicer days, you can nap on the hammock on the wrap-around porch, or stroll into town for some wine tasting.
