PRIVATE GARDEN COTTAGE GET-A-WAY

Murphys Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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

Enjoy a private and cozy cottage for two in the beautiful wine country of Calaveras county.

The cottage is located in historic Douglas Flat, just one mile from the charming downtown of Murphys. The cottage was originally built in the 1960's as the post office for Douglas Flat and is a separate building at Harmon Gardens. Enjoy your morning coffee from the cottage deck or stone patio, watching the ever present hummingbirds sipping flower nectar. Or, stroll through the gardens with a glass of wine and enjoy the water ponds. If you're an artist, bring your easel for plein-air painting in the garden. There is always something in bloom or ready for picking at Harmon Gardens. And our little Douglas Flat community has two wineries, just a short walk from the cottage. Chatom Winery is one of the first wineries in the county and Ayrael View Winery is a new boutique winery.

Nearby Murphys was named the best small town getaway by Budget Vacation Magazine, with plenty of free or nearly free outdoor activities in the area. Downtown Murphys also boasts over a dozen wine tasting rooms and great restaurants. Enjoy the many vineyards that compliment the beautiful hills in the area or travel up Highway 4 a short distance to Big Trees State Park for a fantastic outdoor hike and picnic. Bear Valley skiing is less than an hour away. Ironstone Vineyards summer concerts are just over the hill from the cottage.

Privacy, yet plenty to keep you active, if you want to!

Great little cottage

  • 5 of 5
This was a great place to relax and enjoy the murphys area. Minutes to downtown Murphys, close to the moaning caverns. This was a perfect place to relax and enjoy the outside patio area too. Inside had all the comforts of home.
Great place to stay!

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
A much needed getaway was in store for us. Found this cottage that looked perfect. The cottage is as the pictures depict. Very clean and cozy. Strong wi-fi. Lots of beautiful flowers in the garden. The patio is where we hung out in the morning and evening. The owners live in the back of the property we met them briefly but otherwise you never see them.
We had been to Murphys maybe 8 years ago for a day trip. During this visit we were suprised a lot of the storefronts are now wine tasting but there is still some shopping.
Our favorite place to eat was Rob's Place in Murphy's it's on the right side of Main St as you first drive into town. Thank you Angela & Don for a relaxing getaway.

Owner's Response: Thanks Leona for your kind review of your stay at our cottage. We always appreciate hearing from our guests. And yes, Murphys is a great wine tasting destination location with new restaurants and shops opening up. We've enjoyed Rob's Place as well and love to dine on their patio. Hope to see you again!

Clean, Quiet and Private

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from 3 days in Murphys. The property looked just like the photos and the owners were very responsive to our e-mailed inquiries. Harmon Gardens in Douglas Flat was just what we were looking for. The gardens were lovely and colorful with a lily pond. The cottage was quiet (we could even hear the frogs at night). It was very clean and comfortable with everything we needed for our stay; comfortable pillows and bed, too. There is a microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker--just enough to have breakfast or to relax. The patio was ideal for wine and quiet conversation. Overall, a perfect base for all our activities. The owners were not intrusive, we only met them as we were leaving when we had an informative and insightful conversation about the history of the area. We found both Angela and Don very friendly. BTW Alchemy's in Murphys had a wine tasting dinner while we were there with music that was nice. The cioppino at Grounds' was wonderful, also! Wine tasting on Main Street in Murphys was enjoyable, too. The rain didn't stop us from enjoying all the things we wanted to do in the area. We will definitely return.

Owner's Response: Thank you Drew for your kind review of your stay at our guest cottage! We appreciate when our guests also provide reviews of their experiences in Murphys. Best of all, you and Paul came during the week when our rates are less and Murphys isn't as busy as on weekends. Hope you come again!
