We had a nice stay. It was so convenient to Calaveras Big Trees. Spacious and comfy.

This is a great central location to visit Calaveras Big Trees, Alpine Lake, and explore the wineries in Murphys. The deck is great for dining and the quiet neighborhood is perfect for relaxing and listening to the chickarees and birds. Lovely decor, a great kitchen set up and even a fun horseshoe game. There is also a well stocked DVD selection and a book library. We had a very relaxing stay and very much appreciated that we could bring our dogs!

This is exactly what we needed to escape the chaos of 2020. The Bluebird House was cozy and comfortable, close to many hiking trails and attractions, but secluded for some peace and quiet. We had a great time. Can't wait to get back there.

Bluebird House has become a tradition and it's a great place to relax and just enjoy the fresh air and peaceful surroundings. The house, the deck, the amenities, and the neighborhood are all just perfect for our purposes. The owners are very hospitable and accommodating.
