We ventured out from San Fransisco with friends for a weekend of adventure at Moaning Caverns ziplining, rappelling, and caving. Friends of ours found the Cottages at La Honda Park via word of mouth through the Murphy’s visitor center. The first two places recommended were booked so we were further referred to the cottages. We weren’t sure what to expect so we kept our expectations very low. We prepared ourselves for rustic accommodations. We ended up being very pleasantly surprised.

What we found were luxury cottages in a picturesque setting with marvelous hosts. The grounds are beautifully manicured. The cottages are expertly decorated and immaculately clean. This includes the “bar” that is complete with pool table, darts, foosball and stereo system. They have wine on site that you can buy if you forgot to bring some.

The pool is very nice, clean and stocked with poolside towels, pool floats and toys. They also have outdoor speakers so you can listen to your favorite tunes while you soak up the sun. The hosts, Bar and Jenny, anticipate your needs and work hard to meet. In passing we had mentioned wanting to make s’mores. That night when we returned from dinner, they had set up 4 chairs around the fire pit (which is right next to the creek that runs through the property), stocked it with firewood and kindling and even gave us sticks to roast the marshmallows. It was a perfect evening by the fire, under the stars, with not a care in the world. Our stay was wonderful! We highly recommend a weekend here.

For dinner or something extra to do, the quaint little town of Murphy’s has several wineries. You can walk around the town and stop in for tastings. They also have several very nice restaurant choices where the food is top notch!
Moaning caverns is a great place for an adventure packed day.

The Cottages at La Honda Park are set in a copse of trees that are run through with beautiful gardens and a gurgling stream. When we arrived, Jenny came right out to greet us and made us feel as we were her very own house guests. She and Barr treated us as treasured guests though out our stay. The cottages are immaculately kept and have thick, fluffy bath towels, feather pillows, layers of cotton comforters, and a gas wood stove for heat. Jenny's husband Barr, invited us to use the pool kitchen and barbeques while we were there, and we took him up on it both nights that we stayed as no place in town could compete with the quaint brook, garden lights, and outdoor patio sets that La Honda has. My husband and I enjoyed a game of pool in the game room that also overlooks the stream and played a game of horseshoes in the garden while our friends walked their dog along the paths that line the property. This was the absolute best place that we've had the pleasure to stay at and cannot wait to go back again!

We were so pleased by our first visit to The Cottages at La Honda Park, we are certain to return. The property is absolutely beautiful, and only 5 minutes outside of Murphys. The cottages are spread out on the property, so there is lots of privacy. The cottage has everything you need, but if you want more, there is also a full-sized communal kitchen and a barn with more communal socializing opportunities (pool table, foosball table, etc.) Jenny and Barr are very hospitable and helpful. It's especially nice that the cars are left in a lot at the edge of the property, so no "car noise" outside your windows!

Just got back from another weekend here. If anything it's gotten nicer - the barn is now a gameroom, with a deck over the creek, big tv, fridge, bar, lots of games, pool table, etc. The pool is sparkling, the creek burbled all night, and as usual the house and cabins were immaculate and beautiful. This time we met the owners, who were fixing things up as we pulled in the first day; they're wonderful, kind folks, and excellent hosts. We're thinking about canceling our annual camping trip, and just having a long weekend for all our friends here instead!

This place is great! The owners are nice and accommodating and the property is beautiful and the communal game room/barn is wonderful to hang out in. Our room was picturesque and comfortable as well as private. Overall, a great place to stay for couples or families. Looking forward to going back!

The six little cottages, plus a large main house are so charming and in a lovely park like by a creek. Each of the cottages seem to be in great condition with everything working perfectly and the towels and linens top quality. You feel like you're visiting family, we made friends with all the other guests staying there. The grounds, feature, a small play area for kids, a swimming pool, a large room with games, TV and a pool table. The is a large well stocked community kitchen for everyone to use and outdoor bbq's and tables. The creek is great and it's very dog friendly, located just minutes from Murphys. Jeanne and her husband couldn't be better hosts. There is a lot of privacy and the best rooms are Grandma's or Ripplewood (next to the creek); we'd stay again, just not in the summer--it's hot and the only thing holding me back from 5 stars is the no air conditioning. Great value for the price.

Jeanne is a model for anyone in the hospitality industry, naturally gracious. Gorgeous setting , with all kinds of old-timey extras: barn filled with fun games, many places to sit and admire Angel's Creek, bocce ball, horseshoes. Old miner's cabin on site. We stayed in both the Poolroom and Ripplewood cottages. Both immaculate and delightfully furnished, but we preferred Ripplewood by far.

We were worried about the heat, being used to Bay Area weather, but lucked out this trip. However, the lack of air-conditioning would make us reluctant to go in the summer. Of course, you can always cool off in the lovely pool or creek itself. The Ripplewood cottage needs new shades. The window shade facing the creek doesn't go all the way down. These are merely quibbles with paradise! We'll definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Poolroom and Grandma's room are sort-of attached to each other. Ripplewood is the most private.

We have stayed a number of times here. This is the the best place to relax and get away from it all. Your only a mile from main street Murphys. The owners Barr and Jenny welcome you with open arms. Angels creek that runs through the property is so soothing. We always stay in the Ripplewood cottage. I highly recommend this place on your next visit to Murphys.

"Grandma's cottage is spacious and comfortable with a very comfy bed, seating areas both inside and on the front porch, a small kitchen and a huge bathroom. My only "complaint" is that I don't like showering in a claw-foot tub."
