MILFIORI, CHARMING CARETAKER'S COTTAGE

Murphys Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Life at Milfiori is restful and unhurried. The cottage has had several lives, first as a caretaker's cottage, then as offices for the old Douglas Flat School District, a guest cottage, and now as a vacation retreat. The rear windows have a view of the hills and the Douglas Flat School, built in 1854, the oldest school house in Calaveras County.

The large, front windows look out at the serene, Provence-like gardens it shares with the main house (see listing #229194) and the century-old barn, once used for community dances. The cottage is tastefully and comfortably furnished and includes a newly remodeled bath. If you should decide to stay in and cook, the kitchen is full of dishes and all the cooking utensils you could want.

The property is in the heart of Calaveras County's wine growing region. Stop into one of the numerous tasting rooms to meet the owners and learn about the local wines. You will be impressed by the variety and quality.

For a more active day, explore the old mining towns or go hiking at Big Trees State Park. In the winter, Bear Valley offers great skiing.

Or just enjoy the grounds at Milfiori. Take the time to enjoy the slower pace of the Gold Country.

The owner is on the premises, available to answer your questions or give suggestions on dining and wine tasting.

PRIVACY + ACCESIBILITY + VERY COMFY BED :)

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the caretakers cottage at Milfiori. It was a perfect, cozy homebase for our travels during the first real storm of this year. This is a historic property and being here will immerse you in the feel of the gold country with its richness and color of history. Willi is a warm and gracious hostess, and made us feel very comfortable.

WEEKEND GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This little cottage provided the perfect get-away for my husband and I. Willie was very welcoming and was able to accommodate our late arrival easily. We felt that we had a lot of privacy even with the owner right next door. The cabin was well stocked with all of the necessary amenities. We are regular visitors to Murphys and enjoy experiencing all of the architecturally historical nooks and crannies that the area has to offer. We would definitely stay here again!

LOVELY GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Our Gold Country adventure almost ended before it began, with the smoke out of Yosemite rim fire, but we decided to brave it out and were very happy we did. The smoke cleared up the second day and we were able to fully take in where we were.

Charming is definitely the word here. It was quaint and romantic, with interesting little touches throughout. (The marble doorknob stands out) The kitchen was well appointed and we cooked most every night. The grounds were a fabulous and unexpected perk, and we spent the bulk of our evenings outdoors. It was a wonderful respite and we would definitely consider staying at Milfiori again.

AS CHARMING AS IT GETS.

  • 5 of 5
So cozy and lovely, there are no words to describe how picture perfect this property is but I'll try. After many trips to Murphys, we have found our "go to" place until we get a place of our own. The kitchen in this cottage is full size so if you stay more than a few days and want to cook in, it's absolutely perfect and all the things you need are there. The barn, the farm house and water tower, the expansive mature gardens, the cows next door and the old school house on the other side and oh did I mention the super cool old Italian store that is on the property, an incredible structure that baffles the mind. It's hard not to fall in love with the place. And Willi, the owner, absolutely delightful and as charming as her property.

COZY COTTAGE IN BEAUTIFUL GARDEN

  • 5 of 5
Milfiori is a charming, historical property set back on a quiet road, surrounded by flowers, fruit trees and grapevines. The caretaker's cottage is a comfortable one bedroom with a well-equipped kitchen. Willi, the property owner, was warm and gracious from initial contact to the end of our stay. The location is ideal for spending time in Murphys, visiting wineries and hiking at Calaveras Big Trees State Park. Murphys was experiencing unusually hot weather while we were there and we were thankful for the bedroom air-conditioner. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this rental.

CHARMING AND ENCHANTED!

  • 5 of 5
Having not spent much time in the Gold Country, my husband and I thought this would be a perfect little summer getaway. The best choice we made however, was to travel to Murphys, CA and especially to stay at the charming little Milfiori Cottage! From the moment we got there, we were greeted by Willi, who is charming herself, to the beautiful grounds of the cottage itself, we found ourselves more and more pleasantly suprised! The cottage is immaculate, well equipped and very comfortable. All the comforts of home make this an exceptionally perfect place to stay. The kitchen has everything you will need if you choose to stay in and cook, there is internet access and even a television (but I doubt you'll want to you'll be too busy enjoying your stay). It is small so it really is only good for a couple, but how much better does it get than that?? A perfect getaway in one of the most beautiful and friendly place we have yet to find! Run, don't walk to Milfiori Cottage, meet Willi and then venture out to all the amazing places Murphys and the surrounding areas have to offer. Our only regret was that we had to leave. We will ABSOLUTELY return to Milfiori and would recommend this sweet vacation cottage to anyone looking for a romantic, relaxing place to stay We were only there for four days and when we left we felt like we were leaving new found friends! We loved the cottage and we loved Murphys! Enjoy!
