Murphys, California
This is a lovely little studio, nestled privately behind the main residence. With a private driveway and a private entrance, the Hideaway allows you to escape to your own little retreat.

The Hideaway is airy and spacious enough for two people. The kitchen is impressive for a little studio. There is a sitting area outside, where you may enjoy a meal or your morning cup of coffee while chatting with the blue jays in the surrounding pine trees.

This unit does not have central heat or air conditioning, but has stand alone heaters and air conditioners that make this room quite comfortable.

Booked less than 2 weeks before my visit to Murphys/Columbia State Park. I was looking for accommodations that were appropriate for a single and had full kitchen facilities. The Hideway fit this description. All details were handled online and I was very satisfied with how easy the booking was and the amount of information provided.

Very large and nicely furnished oversized studio. WiFi was available and very dependable. The outside patio with table, chairs and barbeque was a delightful place to kick back at the end of the day--very shady, quiet, private and felt like you were truly away from it all. It was a short walk (or shorter drive) to grocery shopping or the quaint downtown area of Murphys.

The kitchen had full size appliances, which was appreciated by this cook. It was nicely set-up for one or two persons. Quaint furnishings including very large chairs in the entertainment area. A table and chairs or bar seating were in the dining area. The bed was...

Management response:

So glad you enjoyed your stay!

My wife and I usually rent the “Little Yellow Cottage,” while vacationing in Murphys. But, it was already booked for the 2015 Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

Instead, we stayed for the first time in the “Hideaway Cottage” for three nights to celebrate Thanksgiving.

The affordable cottage is more of a one-room studio apartment, which is a 1 ½ mile drive to downtown Murphys. It features a full kitchen, comfortable queen bed, small living room, adequate bathroom and a separate washer/dryer laundry room. It was a nice size for just the two of us.

The room is nicely decorated and very clean. But, there is no closet to hang your clothes (other than a few wall hooks) and bring your own cork-screw wine bottle opener.

Although the Little Yellow Cottage is larger, costlier and a short walk to downtown Murphys, we would stay again in the Hideaway Cottage.

About the neighbourhood
Located in a wooden area behind the main house and downstairs from the Cabana unit. 1 mile from downtown Murphys.

Historic Murphys is a Sierra Foothills retreat. The town has a rich goldrush history, but now is home to a reputable wine tasting region. You are within walking distance to several tasting rooms, shopping and a great selection of restaurants. A short drive away, you are in the thick of the Stanislaus National Forest and Bear Valley Ski Resort, which offers great recreation year round.
Getting around
We are located in a rural area which has limited public transport. A car is needed to arrive to town. Once here, there is one Uber and one local taxi should you wish to wine taste and do not want to drive.
