A queen bed, up a steep narrow set of stairs, just for you with a small shared bath in my cozy eclectic home. One cat, Claire resides here too. Downtown Murphys - about 5 miles away, local eats, wine tasting and olive oil tasting, shopping and live music! A second and third room is also listed and may be available. County 6% transient occupancy tax is included in the price until Aug 1, 2017 then it is added on by Airbnb.

The space

This cozy home is an eclectic warm and inviting place to stay. "A place to want to be." is what my friends say! Your cozy room is up a steep narrow set of stairs. You may wake up to the birds singing and sun in the morning. There is a rooster that crows in the distance, not ours. On occasion coyotes howl some nights, as they run the creek bed far below. Two smaller rooms may be available upon request.

Guest Access

What is your pleasure? Coffee or tea? The kitchen is available for you to use. Please let me know your kitchen needs. The open space downstairs and deck are available to lounge or eat. The bed is a queen bed. A shower is available in the bathroom right outside the guest rooms upstairs. This bathroom may be shared with other guests in the rooms upstairs if we have bookings.

Interaction with Guests

I look forward to meeting and visiting with our guests as time permits!

The Neighborhood

This house is far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet but near enough to be roughly a five mile drive from downtown, Murphys, about 10 minutes from Angels Camp, about 10 minutes to Historic Columbia and about 20 minutes from Sonora. The property is 1/2 an acre but the immediate properties surrounding us are on 3 to 40 and 200 acres. Moaning Cavern is less than a mile away, a great walk or drive. Just past the end of the Zipline there is a great view to walk out to. They offer repelling and cave tours besides the Zipline. Natural Bridges is also about a mile or two away, driving, then about a mile hike down to it.

A Farmers Market in Angels Camp on Friday eve and in downtown Sonora Saturday morning. It's exciting to see that year after year the community of local growers is increasing!

Getting around

Driving is the main mode of transportation here in the foothills. There is plenty of parking here.

We are a two hour drive from Yosemite to the south and two hours from South Lake Tahoe to the north. Day trips are doable. Lake Alpine and Pinecrest are only one hour away. There are many year-round events from music to fairs and festivals. If you are an outdoorsy type there are many hiking, mountain biking, skiing and swimming opportunities, to name a few, here in the mountains and foothills.

This county is an award-winning wine locale. We are about 5 miles from the wine hub of Murphys. There are three tasting rooms right here in Vallecito!

This house is real close to the Ironstone Vineyard Amphitheater and downtown Murphys. The wine tasting was fun and we enjoyed the concert. This is definitely a repeatable trip.

Cynthia and family are sweet and welcoming. One thing that struck me about the house was the aroma. It smelled so good.

Cynthia's place was great for our one night stay. We were happy she allowed us to check in earlier. Her home is very very quiet and the room and bathroom is exceptionally clean! Easy to find and parking right out front. Note that this is a shared bathroom so you could be waiting on others to use the restroom. A nice short drive to downtown Murphys!

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay in Cynthia's home. It is so peaceful and quiet, we had time for naps and relaxing with wine on her patio. Lovely hostess.

I am an outdoorsy kind. I grow some of my own food, and belong to the Slow Food movement. I support local businesses as much as possible. I am a college graduate and professional. One of my favorite movies is Under the Tuscan Sun. Would love to go to Italy some day as well as Thailand and other exotic places. I am very respectful of other people's property. I am an Airbnb host myself. I have had the best experiences using Airbnb! I look forward to meeting you!
