A FOUR DIAMOND AAA/SELECT REGISTRY PROPERTY - Pure Elegance in a Wilderness Setting: Nestled in a quiet forest hollow, where majestic California oak, cedar and pine trees mark the edge of the Stanislaus National Forest and Emigrant Wilderness, is the McCaffrey House Bed & Breakfast Inn. A delightfully warm and charming three-story country home, the Inn was designed and built by your hosts, Michael and Stephanie McCaffrey. The home is located high in the California Gold Country, noted for a traditional four-season climate and breathtaking Sierra beauty; all good reasons why the McCaffreys were first lured here some 30 years ago.
Cool forest views from the balcony are echoed in the multihued blue Amish quilt. Relax in an antique chair and while away an afternoon with a book from the antique bookcase.
A slotted pine sleigh bed looks out upon the garden and a beautiful meadow with pines. Antiques and original art grace the high ceiling room with a quilt in red, green and white cherry design.
Poster pine bed and furniture in a Country French motif, with an original quilt of greens, blues and lavender. This high ceiling room is finished in lavender and blue, with flowered borders on the wallpaper.
A beautiful quilt in burgundy, green and white covers a pine and iron sleigh bed. Accents of rose and green blend with relaxing forest views from the bay window overlooking the creek.
A spacious, high ceilinged room with a balcony view of the front garden. An amish Quilt of blue and white covers a pencil post pine bed; the room features a beautiful antique armoire.
Spacious, with 2 pine beds and french doors that open to the patio, and a lovely garden view.
Country French in flavor with a poster pine bed and furniture. Shades from rose to burgundy accent a quilt of rose, green and white. Step out the french doors to the patio and enjoy a sunny afternoon.

I wanted a get away from the city, have the best experience that a bed and breakfast could offer. So I found the McCaffrey's House through research, reviews, images and etc. I was greeted by Stephanie and her awesome lab at the door with Christmas decor everywhere, I felt so at home. My room was amazingly comfortable, clean, noise free. My best was that the bed was soooooo comfortable and the pillows where the BEST IN THE WORLD! I always have had issues with pillows when i stay away, even if i use two of them. I never had a neck issue like I normally do. I have been talking about this place for two weeks now referring everyone! ! !

Amazing! This beautiful B&B house was designed and built by the owners just for this purpose. The rooms are large and accommodating with balconies and private bathrooms. Each room is beautifully decorated and appointed to fit an individual theme. The bed and linens were so comfortable the only thing that could pry me out in the mornings was the home cooked breakfasts with hot food (today was eggs-Benedict... YUM!!). The hosts, Stephanie and Michael were very nice and helpful, they made our stay here so comfortable and with the home cooked breakfasts, it was like being at home with family. The house is located among lots of activities whether it be a trip to Yosemite, skiing in the mountains, going to Murphys for a wine tour or hiking among the sequoias. If you aren't sure what to do, just ask Stephanie.. she definitely knows the area. I can't think of any problems or issues with my stay here. I have seen very few negative postings for this house but it seems that those folks have problems with pet allergies or steps so if that's the worst thing you can come up with, I just gotta say that my feeling is that if you are going to surround yourself by nature in the mountains, you are going to meet up with animals and steps so just leave those issues behind and enjoy your stay here.

Stayed here Thanksgiving day and the day after. Beautiful house with really large private rooms. Breakfast each morning was homemade, hearty and delicious. The owners were really kind and helpful yet unobtrusive, which really allowed for the private getaway we were really looking for. I definitely recommend a stay here if in the neighborhood.
