Year Purchased: 2014

About: Professional Artist.

Why Murphys, CA, USA:
This unlike any other local Murphys rental, is an art Gallery. On each wall you will view original art work for your viewing and possible purchase. Unlike many local vacation reltals you will arrive to your bedding cleaned and already on the beds. We believe you should not have to make your own bed upon arrival. The Affirmation Cottage is one of the largest vacation reltals with in 100 miles of Murphys. The Affirmation Cottage has about every amenity imaginable. There are more things to do than you can immagine. This home is close to everything in the Sierra foothills.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of the largest private rental in the Murphys area. The tennis courts, basketball court, pool and picnic area are all in the back yard. There is an additional pool and tennis courts as well as a golf course. Most local reltals ask you to make you rbed on arrival. We will have your bed made up already for you.
