Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Murphys, California
Amazing mountaintop home with spectacular views...that is only ten minutes from downtown Murphys. This three story home has a kitchen/dining room, laundry room and half bath on the first story. The second story has a queen size bed and full bath with shower. When you arrive on the third story living room area (with futon and trundle bed... so technically house can sleep six) you be on top of the world with views forever of the surrounding mountaintops. Enjoying relaxing here on the covered deck, while sipping wine and watching the sunset over the hills.

There is a dog run and miles of private walking trails and roads. This home has 60 acres and adjoins hundreds of acres of public BLM land.

Reviewed 6 October 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We love going to Murphys for wine tasting, music events, and just its overall great vibe! This wonderful place is only 7 miles from downtown Murphys and just far enough away to have wonderful peace & quiet! We checked in on a hot August afternoon & the thoughtfulness of having the cooler on was delightful. We hung out inside a bit to take advantage of the coolness. The air was a bit thick from nearby wildland fires, so we ventured into Murphys to do some wine tasting & a little shopping. We loved Hatcher wines the most! They have a great downstairs tasting room that was also nice & cool on this hot, summer day! Bought some great meal fixins' at Sierra Market, cooked 'em up on the great gas grille - kitchen well equipped - a very very pleasant stay. We'll definitely be back. We do like the Cabana cabin too. You guys think of everything to make our stay even better. Thanks so much!
