We live in the Bay Area and recently traveled to Murphys for a weekend get away. Visiting the Gold Country was always something I had wanted to do. We found this spot and wow - just amazing. The property is fantastic with amazing views of the countryside and hills. The rooms are beautifully acquainted and VERY comfortable. I had an... More

Over the top B&B Mike and Mary Jo provide an outstanding B&B experience. The location is out of town and has an incredible view of gold country. Only 4 private and quiet rooms so a peaceful nights sleep is guaranteed. Freshly prepared appetizers and wine welcome you. Dinner reservations were arranged and only a short 10 min drive into Murphys.... More

If you are having a hard time finding a little peace in your hectic life, leave it all behind and visit Mary Jo and Mike Macfarlane at their hilltop Shangri-La called Querencia. Located 5 miles outside of the quaint Calaveras County town of Murhpys, Querencia is worlds away from anything deemed ordinary. The property itself is beautiful with hidden nooks... More

Holy Wah! While the setting and the property are uniquely fabulous, our hosts, Mary Jo and Mike, make a one of a kind special place even more special. The rooms, the views, the grounds and the three course breakfast are never to be forgotten.

We chose Querencia after reading reviews and studying thieir website, After deciding the retreat sounded great we spent an evening there. we thought we understood the beautiful photos and the description of the place but we were unprepared for the levels of excellence from multiple angles. This is a bed and breakfast the likes of which few have had the... More

Querencia is truly a slice of heaven. This past weekend was our 7th time to visit Mike and Mary Jo. We have come by ourselves, have brought our three adult children and their spouses, and this past weekend brought friends from Vacaville. They have said as we were leaving, please bring us back again!! This is the most awesome B&B.... More

What can we add that previous guests haven't already commented on...Querencia is such an extraordinarily special place that it's hard to describe the experience. Once we arrived, we knew that we had found a piece of heaven that Mike and Mary Jo have created above the delightful town of Murphys. It's somewhat off the beaten path, but that's part of... More

How does one describe perfection that is well planned out by the host but experienced freshly and spontaneously by the guests with enough of little surprises thrown in to make one feel like royalty? Mike and Mary Jo have left no detail unturned! From the moment of our arrival, their thoughtfulness and superlative hosting touched our sensibilities and we remained... More

Querencia is unbelievable! The decor, the food, the setting, the tranquility and especially the owners, Mike and Mary Jo made this an experience we will always remember. We were the only ones at the B&B the first night and felt spoiled and pampered by this amazing couple. Mike is a fabulous cook and by they end of our 2 night... More

We just spent our anniversary weekend at Querencia. What a great experience! We stayed in the Tuscan room. The room was beautiful with high quality finishes, a heavenly bed and luxurious linens. The views from the room, the great room and the gardens are gorgeous. Evening appetizer and wine were delicious, but the best treat of all was breakfast. Freshly... More
