Murphy's Circle consists of a ~2-acre riverfront parcel on the lovely Russian River in the hamlet of Guerneville, California.
At this site you are currently welcome to rent only Cottage #1 with shared use of the property. Cottage #4 is occupied for the winter. Our lovely Glamping tents are now closed for the winter season. They will be available again in the spring of 2019 when temperatures are warmer.
At this site, you reserve shared use of our lovely meadow and seasonal dock. If you want exclusive use of the entire property for your event or simply for greater privacy during the time of your stay, then please see our other VRBO/Homeaway site #845082.
The VRBO/HomeAway quote shown may be for only one cottage, which sleeps 5 in beds and up to 2 more in futon or sofabeds. If your party is larger, then you will need to rent more space, simply select 7 and send us a message so that we can discuss availability and rates. Please see the explanation below of our Cottages and their capacities.
Swim, boat or float along the Russian River (weather and water levels permitting), stroll to the many shops and restaurants in downtown Guerneville, walk or hike among the ancient redwoods in nearby Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve and the adjoining Austin Creek State Recreation Area, drive to the Pacific Ocean for great vistas and dining, and/or visit one of the dozens of great wineries here in Sonoma County or nearby in Napa and Mendocino.
Rest and relax in our lovely meadow or on the private deck outside your door. We have a seasonal dock so you can swim, fish, or launch your kayak, canoe or floaty things.
Also available seasonally in the meadow are our fire pit, four picnic tables with seating for 6+ each, several chairs and lounges, and a charcoal BBQ grill. We also have folding tables, which accommodate 6+ each for your meeting or dining. On our meadow - you may choose to frolic, meet and/or dine.

We have recently added four Glamping (shorthand for glamorous camping) tents at the East end of our meadow. These are high quality canvass straight wall tents placed upon sturdy wooden platforms. Each outfitted as a comfortable bedroom, with a deck overlooking the meadow and the river. Together these four tents sleep a maximum of 16 in 10 beds. So if your party has a few more folks beyond what would be comfortable in our cottages, or if everyone wants their own bed, please consider using one or more of our glamping tents - Use of our tents is an extra service, so please let us know if you will need use of the tents. All the fun of camping with very little mess.
