Beautiful vineyard and mountain views! Our 5 meter (15 ft) glamping bell tents comfortably accommodate two adults and include a luxury, full-size bed with high-density memory foam mattress, seating for two, ambient lighting, lots of pillows and two nightstands.
Beautiful decor and bedding will make you feel a million miles away as you enjoy the quiet serenity of being off the beaten path. It's truly a one-of-a kind experience.
We are still close to town and about one mile from Ironstone Vineyards. You can easily bike to Main Street in Murphys, which is just a few miles down the country road. We're easily accessible from highway 4.
The campsite includes a shared fire ring with a cooking grill which is great for roasting marshmallows or having cookouts with burgers or hot dogs. There's plenty of seating including a picnic table and outdoor wicker club chairs and we have four reclining chaise lounges for watching the sunset, sunrise or stargazing.
You can swing in the trees in our hammock chair (foot rest too) or nap in the traditional hammock tucked in the oaks.
Firewood, fire-starter, lighter, BBQ brush, spatula, skewers and tongs are provided. There is a fire extinguisher as well.
There is a also a clean, portable camp toilet. No showers.
The property has an abandoned gold mine, and a lush forest to explore. You'll have to hike game trails to reach the summit but it's worth the effort. Lots of gems, minerals and wildlife to enjoy.

The vibe at Glamping with views in Murphys!
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This was my first "glamping" experience and it absolutely exceeding my expectations. Sara and James made sure I was set up with all of the camping essentials I needed and the bottle of local wine was a fabulous touch. The views were beautiful and the town of Murphy's is a hidden, delightful gem. This will be my new getaway spot for sure!!
Such a cute site! The canvas tent was lovely and the view from the site was amazing. They stocked the place really well they even had cooking utensils and a box of firewood ready for us. There are also some hammocks hanging under the tree next to the site, which was really nice on a hot day. The horses also paid us a visit in the evening. It was very cool.
Sara & James have a wonderful spot. It's fairly easy to get to, not far from down town Murphys and it has a gorgeous view and even better sunset. We will definitely be coming back and staying again. My only disappointment is that we didn't stay longer.
BEAUTIFUL site! We totally lucked out finding this gem. We couldn’t find any dog-friendly hotels and stumbled on this beautiful spot...so glad we did! We only stayed 1 night, but can’t wait to return! Friendly hosts, super comfortable accommodations, and breathtakingly beautiful. Highly recommended!
Sara and James were amazing hosts and the site so lovely. We had car troubles getting out of San Francisco and ended up arriving after dark. However, Sara and James were so friendly and helpful with directions via text. We also forgot matches, and they kindly brought us a lighter and a starter.
James met us at the gate and showed us in. The site had gorgeous little lights hung up and the full moon over the vineyard in the valley below the site was incredible. James also pointed out a trail to the top of the hill where we saw a perfect sunrise the next morning.
The grill has a ton of utensils (smores sticks included!) that makes it easy to cook. The wine bottle they left us was such a nice touch, and the interior of the tent was beautifully decorated. We did not want to leave!
Thanks, Sara and James for helping us start off our anniversary trip with a magical evening!
First camping adventure and had a wonderful time staying right outside of Murhpys, CA! Sara and James were fantastic in communicating prior to the trip and made sure everything was set up and providing some recommendations. The location is perfect to get away while being close to Murphys for exploring and visiting Calaveras Big Trees State Park for day hikes. Loved the decor of the tent and bed was incredibly comfortable. Thank you for a great say!
