Querencia
Ranked #4 of 4 Murphys B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 April 2014

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 distinct good fortune to enjoy. This is a world created by a husband and wife team that in my opinion has surpassed our expectations. I could gush volumes but my descriptions aren't enough. we were treated like family and received kindness, intellectual conversations, philosophical thoughts, a level of warmth we loved. I look forward to staying at Querencia again.

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. You not only have the beautiful venue, but the most awesome hosts. The rooms, the pampering, the breakfast, all the other little details that makes you feel so pampered.
Once again, "Thank You", Mike and Mary Jo for another wonderful weekend!

Room Tip: Didn't mean to click on the pool. There is no pool. OOPS on my part!!!

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 its charm. The inn has four guest rooms, but we were fortunate to be the only guests the Sunday night we visited. This meant we had even more attention from our amazing hosts, who provided us with superb meals and comfortable, intelligent conversation, along with advice about walks around the property. We had arranged for a private dinner in the hidden wine cellar, and every morsel exceeded expectations, starting with Mike's focaccia and Mary Jo's fresh soup using tomatoes and herbs from their extensive garden. Breakfast began when a tray with coffee and freshly baked scones (the best we'd ever had) were brought to our room. From there, we moved to the great room, at our leisure, for an outstanding omelet and eggs Benedict on Mike's freshly made English muffins. We wished we could have stayed longer... We've stayed in many bed&breakfast inns around the world, and there is little doubt Querencia ranks at the top of the list.

Room Tip: Each of the four rooms is lovely, with distinctive furnishings and artwork and amazing showers, some...

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 stay we were sharing recipes. We'd highly recommend this to anyone looking for a wonderful experience and would give this more than 5 stars, if they were available!

Room Tip: We liked the Tuscan room where we stayed. The beautiful hand tiled shower with multiple jets was lux...

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 baked scones, fresh fruit and imaginative egg and pancake dishes. Mary Jo and Mike are amazing hosts.

Room Tip: They are all lovely. This is a small B&B.

I'm not a B&B game, but this place rocks! The setting is unbelievable--on a hill with amazing views, and the place is so relaxing. Mike and Mary Jo, the owners, are wonderful. Breakfast is delicious-Mike's fresh-baked scones and homemade English Muffins are excellent. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants a get-away night or weekend in the foothills.

We stayed for one night at the Querencia in April in the Chocolat room.
This is an amazing place. Mary Jo and Mike have fashioned an exquisite experience for their guests. The property is beautiful, hiking paths, breathtaking scenery gorgeous rooms - immense great room, fully stocked library just a fantastic setting. The bonus is the gourmet food - from cocktail time wine and appetizers to the incredible breakfast choices. We recommend this place so highly - it is unbelievably beautiful - you must experience this.
