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!
