Murphy’s Ranch is a welcoming, supremely comfortable ranch – style home with breathtaking views of the Sierras. With three bedrooms, three full bathrooms and an additional sleeper it can comfortably accommodate up to eight people – we have had 2 families with children stay over holidays and love it.
The living room and dining room have vaulted ceilings and sliding doors that lead out onto a magnificent deck & patio, there is also an extra room to tuck in to play games or read a book. The kitchen has plenty of storage, counter space and room to spread out, and it is well stocked with pots, pans and utensils so making meals there is a breeze. The dining room table seats a party of 8 and there are extra chairs for the bar counter if needed.
The garage will accommodate two large cars so unloading all the goodies from the local markets is easy breezy.
In the mornings we like to stroll down to the Red Apple Stand at the bottom of the driveway and pick up fresh apple doughnuts and turnovers, hot from the oven each day but it’s only a 5-minute drive to downtown Murphys for lunch or dinner.
In the summer we take advantage of the local lakes, swimming holes, tennis courts and golf, in the fall we love to taste all the newly released wines from the local producers. In the winter we head up 30 miles to Bear Valley for downhill skiing although we hear cross-country is also wonderful around here – we just prefer to get up the hills on a lift :).
We really enjoy exploring the near-by towns, there is so much wonderful history! There is a vibrant music scene and you’ll likely be able to catch a concert at the Iron Horse Winery during your summer visit.
