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.

We were given a baggy to take our unused soap home if we liked. That is a great idea and I took it home. Upscale amenities, sheet and wonderful mattress. The house dog was intrusive. Begging while we were eating breakfast. Too close to the main road so we could hear traffic noise. Perhaps back side is better. Outside was not neat and tidy. Old dirt on deck and walkways. Patio furniture on deck and our room patio dirty. Cat that is too be kept in owner's quarters was out in common area but was quickly removed when we arrived. If you are allergic to cats you may not want to stay here. No signs of cat ever being in our guest room. Food was good but very rich. I wish I had some cold cereal. Coffee was excellent. Only cheese and crackers for afternoon refreshment. No fruit as we expected to have.

I spent two nights at McCaffrey House recently by myself and had a thoroughly relaxing time. The area is beautiful, the rooms are lovely and the owners are friendly and personable. The McCaffrey house has a wonderful breakfast, totally different each day and very delicious. I enjoyed the small towns nearby with their shops and diverse restaurants. I recommend a stay to anyone wanting to get away to a quiet perfect place.

We loved staying at McCaffrey House Bed & Breakfast! This is our second visit and we plan to keep on coming here on our annual vacation in Twain Harte. The rooms are magnificent, roomy and clean. Breakfast is wonderful - Stephanie made a lot of effort to comply with our special diet, and the result was wonderful. They welcomed our dog Hugo, who played happily with the house's dogs. All in all it was a wonderful stay - I highly recommend this gem of a B&B to anyone planning to stay in this neck of the woods.

I had come to this B & B years ago with my husband and always remembered how welcome I felt there. This time I came with a relative and we each had our own room. I again loved the artsy decor, the sweet pets and feeling that I could really relax any place I chose. The innkeepers Michael and Stephanie were easy to visit with. I took the first bath I've had in years (I usually shower) with locally made lavender soap. We enjoyed time at Twain Harte restaurants and also at Pinecrest Lake. The attention to detail at this B& B is top-rate. Marlene, the assistant, has a true calling in her vocation! She felt like a good friend and was so attentive to any question or need. This was an ideal getaway for me and my relative!

The owners pay attention to details. They are friendly and know a lot about the area and are helpful with directions. The food was excellent. My husband has food allergies and Stephanie was more careful than our friends usually are!

we had a wonderful stay here. The grounds are gorgeous. The only negative was about 25 stairs down to the front door from parking area. Wish I had known since I have very bad knees. I expect stairs inside, but not like that outside
