Our custom designed Bed and Breakfast is a recently constructed cedar log lodge. Set on a quiet 5-acre hilltop and built with our guests’ comfort in mind, each of the five distinctive mini-suites has a private bath and amazing views; one is pet-friendly. We also have one add-on room for families, and one separate, smaller "no frills" room for the budget conscious traveler. From our peaceful retreat, you can enjoy all that the Mother Lode has to offer, from adventurous recreation to rest and relaxation. Courtwood Inn is a non-smoking property and is the place to “play, relax, and refresh.” We have two championship tennis courts and lessons are available from innkeeper/award-winning USPTA pro Larry. Our beautifully decorated rooms feature relaxing spa tubs, private balconies or patios, and fine linens. Each guest room is adorned with decorations inspired by the international Grand Slam tennis championships and famous tennis players. Guests will enjoy luxury amenities, including high-speed Wi-Fi, an all-day beverage bar and fireplace in the great room, individually wrapped home baked dessert and more. Our luxury Bed and Breakfast is located in charming Murphys, CA, named “One of the Top 10 coolest small towns in America,” is close to Big Trees (i.e. Sequoias) State Park and is not far from Yosemite National Park. Courtwood Inn offers the perfect headquarters for an escape to California’s Gold Country and the foothills wine region.
Chris and Larry Parker purchased a wonderful 5 acre piece of property in Murphys, CA in 2006. They designed and created their dream Bed and Breakfast inn with 2 tennis courts and opened in December 2014. Larry retired as a tennis director in the San Francisco Bay Area after 30+ years to become a full time innkeeper. Chris was also a tennis director and teaching pro before starting Courtwood Wine Tours in 2011 and becoming the chef at the B&B. Currently, Larry is available for tennis instruction at the inn and Chris is available for wine tours that can be packaged with an inn stay.
