McCaffrey House Bed & Breakfast Inn

23251 Hwy. 108 , Twain Harte, CA 95383 USA (Show map) Diamond Collection

Professionally Inspected & Certified Diamond Collection


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.

Great Anniversary Stay! We'll be back!

4.6 on November 11, 2015

What a fantastic place!!! My wife and I tried it out for a few days for our anniversary getaway and the weekend couldn't have been better. Michael, Stephanie and Marlene were all fantastic hosts...great to chat with, friendly and fun. And the doggies were sooooo nice!! We wanted to take them home with us (the dogs, lol!). The house was spotless, the rooms were comfy, the morning breakfasts were delicious and perfect, and the atmosphere was very relaxing. We will definitely be coming back to Twain Harte to visit soon, and we'll be staying at the McCaffrey House again!!! We love finding spots like this!

Very pleasant retreat in the Sierra

Perfect place on our California tour, very nicely decorated house, owners very helpful and knowledgeable about the region, great breakfast

Wonderful stay but too far from Yosemite

4.2 on September 25, 2015

This was a lovely, comfortable and welcoming B & B. The owners were helpful and accomodating in ever way. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. The drive to Yosemite was over hour each way but it was a pleasant ride with beautiful scenery. If you hate windy roads, you may want to forgo the trip since they're are many.

I believe I did this already but will gladly do it again,. The hosts of the property were exceptionally polite and gracious, the room I stayed in was very romantic for me and my lady. To wake up with the view of the forest in the large picture window was awesome for the beginning of a day, to bring peace of the wilderness into the room exceptional. will I stay there again YES!!!!! also the breakfast was to die for Barry

Outstanding B&B

4.6 on June 08, 2015

Probably the best B&B we have stayed at. Stephanie and Michael have perfected every detail, and went out of their way to make us feel like welcome guests in their home. They could write the book on how to run a B&B.

The perfect weekend getaway!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at McCaffrey House for the Memorial Day weekend. The gourmet breakfasts and the staff's hospitality went beyond our expectations; we truly felt at home. We also enjoyed a couples massage in our room with the scenic redwoods and chirping birds just outside our window. It was the perfect escape from the city life.

Great B&B!

We stayed because the purpose of our visit was to get to know the area & the people. We are considering purchasing a vacation home. Thank you so much for the warm welcome.

Wonderful getaway

4.4 on April 02, 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at McCaffrey House. Stephanie and Michael could not be more warm, welcoming, and gracious. The accommodations are comfortable, and the food was exceptional. The breakfast bread pudding is out of this world! If you're looking for a mountain getaway in California's charming gold country, we highly recommend McCaffrey House.

Best B&B I've ever stayed at!

4.2 on February 19, 2015

I've done a number of B&B when my wife and I where childless but only get out once or twice a year now with our daughter so we have some pretty high expectations. We came to the McCaffrey house with our 2 yr old daughter and where really impresses. The room was great with a separate area for our daughter in a quiet and comfortable room. The setting was beautiful. But best of all the owner was very outgoing and kind. I have ciliacs disease and don't eat wheat which the owner worked around. The food was outstanding and I had just a wonderful experience. I can't recommend this place enough. We are comming here for our future stays in this area.
