Adorable house and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very low key girls weekend to celebrate my birthday. I had never been to Murphys and the town is just adorbale, but the house is even more so. It had the perfect combination of charm and all the necessary ammenities. We had 8 people stay here and it was more than comfortable. The kitchen is super well stocked which was great since we cooked a few meals at home. The proximity to the town was amazing. It is close to everything, yet it is not loud or too close to all the visitors. The large u shaped couch in the living room was perfect to snuggle up and listen to music while we all caught up with a glass of local wine.

Bob was also a great host and very responsive to any questions we had. I would highly recommend this place to anyone that wants to be in a comfortable home in the center of everything!!

Wonderful house, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay here - it was a perfect house for our New Years Eve weekend. The layout of the house is great for groups and it is right across the street from the pourhouse. We definitely plan on staying here again.

The home is incredibly comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was very comfortable and the house was simply gorgeous. Nicely decorated in an inviting comfortable way. We were able to walk to all things fun! Our only criticism were that the beds were a bit uncomfortable since we are used to big fluffly heavenly beds at our home, but certainly better than the Murphy's Hotel beds!!!!
