About Kathie Murphy

My husband is a retired surgeon and I trained dressage horses and ran our breeding and boarding barn. We have a 100 acre ranch outside Ashland where we board dogs, raise sheep and run cattle. We bought the land in Crescent City, cleared it, then built this as a second home. The development of the gardens have been a joy for us.

Why Kathie Murphy chose Crescent City

Crescent city has so many things to see and do. It is also close enough for us to go back and forth. The climate is very different from Ashland and is a welcome change from inland weather.

What makes this house unique

It has given us a place to get all our family together in one place.

Great Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This is a quiet and awesome house to stay at. We were working in town and had a great stay. Had everything you need. Very private and plenty of space. Has a huge yard and beautiful surroundings. Close to town but yet you feel away. Minutes from the beach. We were very lucky to find this house to stay at. I would recommend everyone to stay here. Thanks for the great stay and hospitality!!!

Salt Lake City


  • 5 of 5

The cottage was fantastic! Clean, well kept and well appointed. I like to cook - and I was able to! The kitchen is very well stocked. The beds very comfortable, plenty of bedding, clean and fresh! Games galore, and a fantastic "sun-room" to enjoy them! Cottage was warm and inviting even during the Northern CA "drizzle season". The beach and old growth forests are a short drive away. Several folks have mentioned the beautiful gardens on the cottage property- and beautiful they are! Clearly a labor of love! As other reviews point out, the town of Crescent City is a bit drab - however, because the cottage is so beautiful, secluded, and surrounded by such magnificent gardens, after stocking up at the grocery store, we didn't want to go to the town! Kathy was very helpful, and all logistics - entry, directions, payments and refunds of deposits and cleaning fees - were super fast and efficient. I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough!

A Perfect Holly-Day Get-Together!

  • 5 of 5

Santa and his elves gave our families an early Christmas gift by having this awesome cottage available for a VERY LAST MINUTE booking! Five kids/three adults and one 180 lb dog were very (and I mean VERY worried) that our two day rendezvous would be ruined after discovering upon our arrival that our original VRBO had RAT FECES everywhere and was fairly dirty as well. :0 !!!! We had brought food and had planned on doing some baking/fudge making and gingerbread ouse decorating so finding a hotel at the last minute would of been a very sad solution and needless to say we were NOT going to stay in the first place! The owner of this PERFECT cottage was caring and very understanding of our situation. The caretaker actually lives on the property as well. The place was cozy & clean and we were all very excited (and very glad actually) that the first place was so bad!

It was the perfect Christmas gift and experience for all of us!

home base

  • 5 of 5

cottage was as advertised, quaint cottage for the 2 of us but had 6 beds we never even used. would be great for a bigger crowd. The weather was rainy but that should be expected in Nov. very centrally located for all the sight seeing we wanted to do. Do not miss the Stout old growth redwoods. our first Home Away experience, will do again. Owner was very honest and prompt with deposit and cleaning fees returns

The cottage was incredibly clean and well stocked. Secluded and serene. The nature around the home was stunning and the beach was a two minute drive away. Crescent city folks were also incredibly kind to us.
