Rich in history as a boom town in California’s gold rush, today Murphys is a lavish travel destination. You’ll still find plenty of 19th-century architecture, and nods to its lively past, but with all the makings of a perfect California vacation: vineyards, outdoor access, high-end restaurants, and more.
Our Murphys vacation rentals are nestled along the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas, so the outdoors are right at your fingertips—in fact, Murphys is a day-trip away from Lake Tahoe and Yosemite. For something a little closer, visit Mercer Caverns for an underground adventure. They’re a great way to entertain the whole family, and are just minutes from our Murphys cabin rentals.
If wine-tasting is more your speed, you’re in luck. Murphys is home to many wineries and you’ll find a number of tours available. Every year, on the first Saturday of October, thousands of visitors attend the Grape Stomp Competition and Gold Rush Street Fair. Here, winemakers compete for the prize, local vendors peddle handmade crafts, and there’s even a costume contest.
This small town is a hidden gem of the Sierra Nevadas. Come experience it for yourself with one of our Murphys vacation rentals. Browse our collection and start planning your next getaway.
