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 second home. The development of the gardens have been a joy for us.

Why Kathie Murphy chose North Coast California

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.

Quaint Cottage near beaches and redwoods

  • 4 of 5

This Crescent City Cottage was perfect for our two family holiday. The two queen size beds were comfortable and the rooms were roomy. The 3 children slept comfortably in their own beds in the 3rd bedroom. The kitchen had all the necessities and plenty of glasses and dishes for the 7 of us. And the sun room is where we spent most of our inside time. The fenced in yard was a plus for our 4 legged family member. We all had a great time in this home away from home!

Beautiful wooded English cottage in a colorful garden.

  • 4 of 5

My grown kids, 2 grand babies and Soninlaw. We came for a memorial for my little brother who met his wife there. It was a sad affair but we had a wonderful stay in this cottage. The yard was perfect for our whole family to have dinner and sit by the fire pit one night. We ere all very comfortable.

Roomy, cute cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Secluded Cottage was cute as well as roomy. The property is beautiful and plenty of room for a large family or even multiple families to stay. Only challenge was just one shower, but everything else was perfect.

Perfect location and place for the Redwoods and the Crescent City area Coastline.

  • 5 of 5

We were ending our vacation after coming down the coast from the Olympic Peninsula, along Oregon, to the northern California Redwoods. This cottage was a welcome haven for a few days, like coming home, stocked with everything we needed to relax, cook, sleep, and commute on daytrips to the Redwoods National/State Parks sections . The cottage property is very charming and blooming, hummingbirds outside the wonderful windows partaking of the lovely flowers and bushes, and a pleasant walking path maintained. Being backed up to a forest, the property's view was serene and very quiet and truly secluded. Distressed reviews of the potholes getting to the property are greatly exaggerated. The short stretch of gravel roads were easily negotiated with awareness and we had no problem at all in a minivan. The only negative were mosquitos in the area. Thank you Kathie for providing this comfortable abode for use, it was truly wonderful.

Secluded cottage stay

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the peacefulness of the beautiful garden and comfortable home after a long day of travel. The kitchen is well-stocked with dishes and cookware, so it was easy to cook meals at the cottage. Our dog was happy to wander through the fenced yard after being in the car.
