We fled another terrible B&B in Murphys and were lucky to find this wonderful B&B. The landscaping is lovely, the building is spacious and new. You are greeted in the atrium living area by the very nice owners (Doreen and husband Kirk). The rooms are large, comfortable, and well furnished with two upholstered chairs, king bed, gas fireplace, satellite TV and glass doors opening up into the lovely gardens and outside eating areas. The sound proofing is good (a wedding at a neighbor's house had music but it was only minimally heard while in the room). Over breakfast of nut-crusted French toast w/ blueberries and bananas, fresh juice you can read one of three newspapers. I finished up the paper on the outdoor swing. Everything was sparkling clean with an eye towards guest comfort (robes in the closet which is unusual for a B&B, an ice machine). There's an outdoor spa as well as the indoor whirlpool tub so bring a swimming suit. I would definitely return to this B&B while in the area. This inn is a delight and everything you expect a B&B to be.
