About Russ and Joan Boyd
Joan and Russ are former Bay Area real estate agents who recently moved to charming Murphys full time. Joan and Russ are California natives as Joan grew up in Menlo Park and Russ in Southern California. We love the Bay Area but were looking for a place to escape the traffic and congestion that exists today on the peninsula. We have owned homes is Tahoe and Arnold but Murphy's is closer and less crowded. . Our wish was to find an upscale vacation home which a Bay Area designer had created and designed in a English cottage style which is unique for this area. Our wish is for you to enjoy Dogwood Cottage as much as we do!
Russ and Joan Boyd purchased this House in 2017
Why Russ and Joan Boyd chose Murphys
We fell in love with this particular Murphy location because it is in an exclusive section of Murphy's which has security at the gates and more to outdoor activities that other sections of Murphys. This includes tennis, golf and swimming plus trails right out the door and nearby skiing. Downtown is only 3.4 miles away .
What makes this House unique
Our vacation home is an upscale home which a Bay Area designer had created and designed in a English cottage style which is unique for this area. We also appreciated the private Forest like backyard with a Zen vibe for grilling and drinking a glass of vino in complete silence. Our final wish is for you to enjoy Dogwood Cottage as much as we do!

What a beautiful home, and area. All the details were thought of. Definitely would recommend this home, and we will be planning to come back.
The home was lovely and very comfortable for three couples. The kitchen was well outfitted and the snacks the owners provided were much appreciated! The neighborhood was very close to downtown Murphys, so we enjoyed the restaurants, shops and wineries on a beautiful, sunny day in February!
Perfect little getaway!
Everything was as advertised. Could not have been happier. Easy short drive up to Bear Valley, with this magnificent cottage as our home base was just perfect. I’d stay here again in a heartbeat.
Great home! We enjoyed our time here, and can’t wait to come back!
This place is excellent - great location, extremely clean, nicely decorated, nice size. The owners are easy to communicate with and very helpful. We were extremely pleased with this home!
The scenic town of Murphy's is close by - great place to go wine tasting, out for a nice meal or just stroll through the main street. The craft beer taproom Murphy's Poorhouse has a nice selection of beers and great deli sandwiches. We also went to Bear Valley to ski and to the town of Columbia. There are a lot of fun things to do in the area and this house is in an ideal location.
We had an amazing time! Beautiful home, the owners were very accommodating and it was perfect for 6 adults to enjoy a relaxing weekend away from the kids. We will be back for sure!
There are trails right out the door plus tennis, biking, swimming, and concerts at the local wineries. One such winery is just minutes away from this location. Downtown is 5 miles and has festivals, wine tasting, restaurants, a park with a creek running through it and a whole lot of charm! Gated and safe with security.
