Very comfortable, very clean and the gourmet breakfast were the best I have experienced. We would love to return for another stay.

The best B&B we have ever booked! The home has a great history and is very comfortable. Jan and Bill gave 5-star service and every bit of the meals were homemade and gourmet. Highly recommended!

Janet, the innkeeper, is a treasure and an absolutely wonderful cook!

My husband I really enjoyed the Cooper House - we stayed in what was the Master Suite and had our own bathroom with a stand alone tub and really cool old plumbing. Our hosts, Janet and Bill were great. We had plenty of privacy and were able to mingle when we wanted to. The Cooper House is easy walking distance into the town of Angels Camp. I don't want to brag about it too much for fear that it will be booked out too far in advance next time we want to stay there.
4.6 on June 17, 2017
I really enjoyed the peace and quiet of the place. The deck off my room was delightful. And, I enjoyed the Inn Keeper. She was terrific, very professional and a great cook! I will be back!

By nature, a stay at a B&B has a feeling of intimacy. You share close living quarters often in charming country settings and find yourself dining with complete strangers. When you are at Cooper House, you're family! Janet and Bill provided us with the warmest of welcomes, and that is not to be taken for granted. It is evident that they love what they do, and they spare no detail in anticipating every guests' desire. The dinner that the hosts prepared for us that evening was better than innumerable restaurant meals I have eaten; graciously presented with five-star table decor. The breakfast exceeded expectations as well---seasoned to perfection, fresh and delicious. Almost anything you might want or need is available 24 hours a day in the common room at no extra charge. How refreshing! Rooms are lovely and quiet, beds & linens are perfect, shower water is steaming hot. The bathrooms are admittedly quite small, but you won't mind that one bit! Can't wait to return.

Bill and Janet sure know how to make their guests feel special. They go above and beyond with everything, from the warm hospitality to the luscious food and entertainment ideas. We can't wait to go back!

We had a relaxing weekend. Lovely room and sweet details: soaps, caramels and wine.
4.6 on October 30, 2016
My wife and I spent a relaxing weekend in Angels Camp, with hiking, sight-seeing and dining; we even happened to be there for the Mark Twain Western Festival! Both hosts were super friendly and helpful, and fresh cookies and treats waited for us every evening, as well as a stocked refrigerator in the relaxing, shared living room with complimentary drinks (incl. beer!). Breakfast was wonderful, with multiple food choices and time options. The room was very cozy and nice, the veranda would have been great except that it happened to rain much of that weekend. The location is amazing: you feel completely hidden away in a park-like setting, yet you're literally a 2 minute walk from the center of Angels Camp! The only slightly negative surprise was that the "private bath" required us to go out into the hallway. I guess I expected an "en-suite bath". However, since we were the only guests that weekend and in that part of the house, it didn't matter much. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
3.8 on October 16, 2016
Very relaxing and comfortable. Bill and Janet made us feel very much at home.
4.4 on October 15, 2016
Nice historic house in Angels Camp that has been converted to a very accommodating bed & breakfast in gold country. The hostess, food and bed were all top notch. Room to relax and unwind, the bathroom is detached and comparatively small (expected for a historic home). Very nice, we would definately recommend and we plan to return.
5 on October 02, 2016
We have never been fans of B and B's but our stay here changed our minds! Janet went above and beyond to make us feel welcome! Our room was clean and very comfortable! The afternoon snacks with our glasses of wine were great and our breakfast the next morning was gourmet! Would definitely recommend the Cooper House Inn!
5 on September 06, 2016
This is always a great place to stay. Rooms and service are excellent with a great choice of breakfasts.

Janet and bill do a wonderful job of making you comfortable and feeling at home. Awesome breakfast with great homemade jellies Janet cans herself. We had an excellent experience. Thanks janet! Doug and Tami

My wife and I recently stayed at the Cooper House for 2 nights while visiting Angel's Camp, Murphys, and Arnold for our "baby-moon". This was our first time staying at a B&B and, after having such a great experience, it will not be our last. The Cooper House has 3 different rooms to choose from. We stayed in the "Chardonnay Suite" which had a king size bed, and nice large private deck (where we drank our coffee in the morning), and a private bathroom which was just outside the room. I thought the bed was fairly comfortable, but my wife, who is 7 months pregnant, missed our tempur-pedic at home. The breakfast both mornings was fantastic! Janet is an excellent cook.. we had baked eggs, and french toast one day, and a sausage and egg frittata the second. Each breakfast also included a side of berries, fresh coffee, and fruit juice. Every condiment you could want including 3 different hot sauces A++ . There is a mini fridge stocked full of drinks including of beer, wine, sodas, and water. It was very hot the weekend we were in town so the waters, (and cold beer), were much appreciated. One night we decided to catch a movie at the theater in Angel's Camp which was 1 minute walk into town. You can really tell that Janet goes the extra mile to make it a comfortable stay for her guests. She does little things like make homemade soaps, and bake fresh cookies and brownies, that adds a lot to the overall experience and makes it a special place to visit. We will definitely look at Cooper House again if we are back in the area. Highly recommended!

My husband and I were searching for something close and not too far away from home. I decided I wanted to stay at a bed and breakfast because I had never done that. Hands down the best thing to do! We decided to get a room that had a outdoor patio for us to relax and just talk. It was nice even though it was just one night because we have (2) small children and we normally don't like to leave them for long. Our bed was FANTASTIC! So comfortable and we felt re-energized when we woke up the next morning. Very clean. Complimentary wine and beer. They have games that you can play if you want. Janet and her husband are very sweet and you can tell this is a passion of theirs. In the morning we got to have breakfast around 930. My husband got the baked eggs...it is delicious. Make sure to order that! We will be back! We already talked about coming back yearly for our wedding anniversary!! Thank you so much for all the small little details it makes you feel at home!

great historic charm, clean and extremely comfortable beds. Top of the line linens and towels. Breakfast is excellent with super specialties. Hosts are great and do everything to make a great stay.
4.6 on April 14, 2015
We stayed at Cooper House on a Tuesday, on our way to Yosemite and absolutely loved it. The whole house is beautiful and really well presented - homely, whilst providing the standards of a top class boutique hotel. Tey & Rob were perfect - very welcoming, provided us with as much info as we could need whilst being very relaxed and friendly without over doing it - available and approachable, but basically gave us free reign of the place. Complimentary drinks were a very nice touch and the breakfast was spot on - by far the best cooked bacon we had in California! Would love to go back. Oliver Hockey, London, UK.

Beautiful home and the owners are great. One down side was that although we had our own bathroom, it was outside our bedroom. I would return, but that was a bit of a shock to me.
4.4 on November 05, 2014
Loved this historic BnB and appreciated the architecture as well as the lovely grounds. BnB in convenient walking proximity to Angel's Camp. Great breakfast and hospitality.
3.4 on October 08, 2014
Second year in a row of staying here during Grape Stomp. Rob was wonderful with details and returning my phone calls. We love this sprawling house and the beautiful views! The only things that were issues (minor) were, not near enough wine glasses and no non stick pans. Kitchen could be stocked better. Plus we could have used another outside garbage bin. Otherwise-this house is a winner! We love it and will return!
4.8 on August 25, 2014
This is the second time my husband and I have stayed at Cooper House B & B. It's in a beautiful location, the rooms are clean. The beds are delightfully large and comfortable. The bathrooms are "rustic" and small as this is an old house remade into a B & B but there is plenty of hot water and the plumbing works like it should. The owners are very sweet and provide excellent service but leave the guests alone when appropriate to enjoy their stay. The available snacks and drinks are great and breakfast is absolutely fabulous! I will definitely stay there again.
3.8 on August 19, 2014
Nice guys running a cute, private and quiet B&B in the foot hills of gold country. Friendly and courteous service with great insight on the local happenings and how to get around easily to avoid the traffic and road construction - which helped a lot! Great food and accommodated our vegetarian diet.
4.4 on July 30, 2014
We stayed for 5 days at Murphys House on Main - it was spectacular! The location could not have been more ideal, the house was spacious and well-equipped, and the outdoor space, right on the creek, was beautiful and tranquil. The owners were accommodating and easy to contact. In short, we had a fantastic experience, and will definitely be back!
5 on July 06, 2014
My Husband and I stayed in Angel's Camp on our return trip from an extended stay at Lake Tahoe. Angel's Camp is such a charming little town and Cooper House is a wonderful place to stay. Rob and Tey have clearly worked very hard to create a very welcoming environment that is impeccably decorated. It made a perfect homebase for our explorations in the area, including a hike at Calaveras Big Tree State Park. The breakfast choices were extensive and delicious. We're looking forward to a return visit next year. Regards, Bob Nieder
5 on June 15, 2014
My husband and I stayed at the Cooper House on our honeymoon 20 years ago and retuned for our anniversary this year! Everything about our stay was wonderful. The kindness and hospitality that Rob and Tey extended were amazing! I am hoping to not make it so long until our next stay at this treasure to be found in Angels Camp!
Thank you for your kind review. It was very exciting to have you return after 20 years. We look forward to seeing you in future.

The room was amazing. They had it set up romantically for my birthday with rose petals on the bed with wine and chocolate. The breakfast was amazing. If you ever stay I highly recommend the baked eggs. The staff is extremely pleasant and always available. The setting is beautiful. The house is tucked away in a spot straight out of a Thomas Kincaid paiting.
It was very nice to have met you both. It was a pleasure having you. We both look forward to your return.

My husband and I stayed at Cooper House B & B in late April. Rob and Tey were very cordial hosts. Tey cooked a very delicious breakfast. The B and B was kept very clean. Our stay was very pleasant. We would stay at Cooper House B & B again.

Location, location location, a half-block from the center of town, a hidden gem in the heart of gold country, The Cooper House Bed and Breakfast in Angels Camp was laid back, historically interesting and authentic.The atmosphere, relaxed, tranquil, quiet and comfortable. Rob and They and their help were friendly, welcoming and respectful of our privacy, which was necessary in such intimate quarters. The rooms were antiquated, but in the best way, retaining the charm of this unique, vintage house. The shower/toilet was in the hallway, but had cute touches, like frog shaped soap. The living room featured,a photo of Mark Twain, cozy sumptuous chairs,and just outside, a large porch and intimate gazebo, perfect for sipping the complimentary wine and beer. The breakfast was terrific! I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone visiting Angels Camp. Again, a true gem in the heart of 49ers gold country.

We arrived on Friday evening to find a wonderfully prepared home for our stay. There was more than enough room for us to cook, relax and wine taste. The rooms were clean and neat. The master suite was more than expected. We are coming back next year and looking forward to it already.
We are very excited you had such a great time. Our staff work very hard at assuring comfortable accommodations for our guest. I will pass on to our crew your comments. As a small veteran operated business we truly appreciate your support. We look forward to seeing you next year if not sooner.

We had a great time at Murphy's on Main Street. The house was perfect. There was a ton of room, everything we needed was there and the location is amazing. Will definitely be back.....
Thank you very much for your review. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay. We strive very hard to please all our guest and it feels great to know we have done that. Thank You and we look forward to your return.

My wife and I booked the Cooper House for our anniversary based on some online reviews. As it turned out the reviews about the place itself and the hosts were right on the money. Very nice people and the facility is quite pleasant. However, the breakfast was somewhat disappointing with what seemed like stale or very crunchy Belgian waffles. Also, the doors to the rooms (there were 2 doors into ours) are not lockable, except one of them by a flimsy slide lock to be used when IN the room. The other door opened to outside the building and appeared to not be lockable at all. If you are concerned about security while NOT in your room then this could be a problem. Other than those two things the stay was very nice, bed was comfortable, and the hosts were very cordial.

What a wonderful place to stay the night. Warm, friendly, comfortable and delicious food. Free wine too!
4.8 on August 14, 2013
We first stayed at Cooper house in June, 2011, and we just returned from a weekend there in August, 2013. As before, Tey and Rob are wonderful, gracious hosts, the food (breakfast) is great, the beverages, including nice wines, are included, and the rooms are interesting and comfortable. My only wish would be to have the bathroom a bit bigger, but it wasn't actually a problem. This time, we stayed in the Zindfandel suite, which is now our favorite. It has a nice little balcony from which you can watch the pleasant garden area during the day and the stars at night. For you astronomy types, I was surprised at how dark the skies were, even though the altitude is not that high. We could clearly, though not brightly, see the Milky Way and a whole lot of stars from the balcony. Bring your binoculars or telescope. We shall return :-)

We had a great time the the House on Main Street. Very nice and clean and super convenient to all shops and wine tasting rooms. I will stay here again.

My family & I just got back from a trip to Gold Country. We stayed at the Cooper House B&B on Saturday night. Rob & Tey were delightful hosts. My daughter loved all of the board games, I enjoyed the morning coffee & thick terry robes. My husband enjoyed the crisp white sheets and bedding. We will gladly stay here again on our return trip to Gold Country.
3.4 on May 20, 2013
Friendly hosts; nice amenities; best night's sleep on our road trip! Street parking, though very safe. Would have liked faucets in bath sink to mix hot & cold together.
4.8 on April 21, 2013
Our first stay at the Cooper House was a delight. We felt perfectly at home the moment we walked through the front door. The proprietors and other guests were charming and friendly, and breakfast was delicious. Unlimited wine and beer in the lobby, too! Perfectly situated a couple blocks from the main drag in Angels Camp, and a short drive from lots of cool attractions and other dining options. Rates are not cheap, but worth it if you can splurge. You won't be disappointed!
5 on April 01, 2013
Tey and Rob did an amazing job during our 3 night stay. They were very helpful in providing information about local attractions, Wineries and dining. Breakfast each morning was amazing (especially the frattatas and baked eggs). Tey and Rob also provided snacks throughout the day as well as all the beer, wine and soda you wanted throughout the stay. We chose the room with the private patio area and king bed. The only knock I would have for the room was that there was very little closet space. Overall experience was absolutely wonderful and we will make sure to have a return trip. I would recommend the Cooper House to anyone looking for a feel at home yet private stay.

We have stayed at the Cooper House 3 times now and each time it gets even better.

The House on Murphys was in a great location in the center of Murphys. There are many great shops to walk to. The historic Murphy's hotel is within walking distance as it the beautiful Angels Creek and Park. As a matter of fact, the creek runs through the back of the property. The home is spacious, comfortable and offers wifi access. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.
4.8 on July 21, 2012
Had a wonderful stay at Cooper House B & B. Greatly appreciated how super clean everything was, the linens were fine and the breakfast was perfect. I also loved how fully stocked their guests refrigerator and snack bar was. It made us feel truly welcome and we knew that the owners really cared about our stay by making sure there was a snack or refreshment or coffee or wine ready for us whenever we needed or wanted. The owners are super chill and hospitable without doting over us so much that you dont feel the separation between you and the owners or innkeepers which can be the case in some small B & B's. Loved the privacy of the rooms and the charming old home and grounds. We will go back annually now and recommend to our friends who also want to visit Gold Country and its blossoming wine region!
4.2 on July 11, 2012
My husband and I enjoyed our 3 night stay in the Chardonnay room. The hosts, Tey and Rob, are as friendly and helpful as could be; they go above and beyond to make sure you have a pleasant experience. Pros Great service Clean Well-stocked bar. The wine is actually good, too! Delicious dessert! Tasty breakfast -- I highly recommend the French toast. Breakfast was fresh, well-presented, and high-quality. Private deck for this room Vintage style rooms and furnishings, which many would find quaint Quiet street location Cons Not built for modern convenience, with small bathrooms that do not adjoin to room, (though private). Small rooms, as well. But you expect this going in. The room upstairs has a balcony that people love to smoke on. Problem was that it was somehow near the ventilation system for our room. Every time the guests upstairs smoked on their balcony, our room filled with smoke, even waking us up at 6:30 in the morning as the smoke was that intense and we are not smokers. I did address the problem and the hosts were great about talking to the guests upstairs and asking them to keep the door to the balcony closed while smoking, but they either didn't comply or it didn't make a difference. Definitely a huge problem for us. Only semi-private for noise. No common walls, but there was a screaming child in the room across from ours (seriously? You go on an expensive private retreat so that you can let others listen to your child scream?) Overall, I was very pleased with the service and hospitality, as well as the food and drinks offered here. If the ventilation system gets fixed and there are no guests with screaming children staying the same nights, I would surely return. And the element of superior service certainly outweighs any of the cons.
5 on June 11, 2012
This was our 2nd annual stay at the charming Cooper House Inn. Thankfully nothing has changed since our stay in 2011. The breakfasts are still organic, gourmet, and customized. Rob and Tey are still as entertaining and welcoming as ever. The room (a change from last year) was extremely comfortable and spacious. All in all we just can't say enough good things about the Cooper House Inn. We wouldn't have chosen it for the 2nd year in a row if it wasn't the very best in lodging in the Mother Lode.
4.2 on June 07, 2012
Tey and Rob made us feel right a home in their lovely historic, Cooper House B & B. The luxuriant bedlinens and comfy bed in the Chardonay Suite were like heaven after a long day of sightseeing, the private bath a historic delight, and the breakfasts amazing. The breakfast menu was a real treat with creations such as Tey's own cinnamon swirl/pecan and maple syrup french toast, or my favorite, baked eggs with ham and gouda served with freshly squeezed orange juice. We really appreciated that food was prepared with locally grown veggies, eggs and jams and jellies, and that even the stunning bed covers are handmade locally. Rob and Tey's evening ritual is a pleasant change of pace as they offer "beverages" and specially prepared sweets and/or treats in the mid-evening. So that becomes a time to enjoy a nightcap, visit with other guests and plan your next day. Thanks Rob and Tey!

One of the owners, Rob was a wonderful host. He made our stay outstanding.

Tey & Rob were great hosts. Wonderful Breakfast and warm cake at night- like Heaven. I would definatly recommend this place. It was very very clean and charming. We had a room with a deck outside and a small garden with grass. Even though it was winter the weather was warm and that little private back yard was a great place to relax in. We hope to go back soon.
5 on November 26, 2011
This is my second time staying here and I love it!!!! The house if perfectly located right on main street and murphy's is the perfect romantic get-away town. I love the creek that runs through the back of the property. At night we cracked the window and fell asleep to the sound of the rushing creek. The home stay made for the perfect place to rest our heads after our weekend adventure. We will be back!
4.8 on November 25, 2011
Amazing house and service! All the good, free wine we could drink and great, personal service. Highly recommended.

We had a nice time. Breakfast was fantastic, the room was great and Rob and Tey made sure everything was perfect!
2.8 on November 11, 2011
This house was in a great location for walking around Murphys and a good value. It can use a little TLC - the pocket door into the master bath needs fixing and that bathroom window needs a shade. Since we did not eat at Cooper House, I can't review the dining.
4.2 on October 30, 2011
Wonderful, well stocked private house near Murphy's. Only problem was the steep staircase to get in - there's an easier path up the slope to the back, but it isn't well maintained. Comfortable, clean, spacious. Owned by C house B&B.

The Cooper House was amazing. Gorgeous setting and amazing room. The breakfast was absolutely incredible. I cannot wait to go back!

The house was close to everything. Walked to wine tasting and dining. Plenty of room. Next time I'll go back and take the rest of the family. I loved listening to the creek behind the house.
4.6 on September 23, 2011
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Cooper House. The house is a very, relaxing environment with a beautiful porch to enjoy your morning coffee on. It is a quick walk to downtown, but feels far removed with the lovely green trees and gardens around the house. Tey was extremely helpful with recommendations on restaurants and area attractions. Also, Tey's breakfasts were absolutely fantastic! I am still dreaming about the baked eggs. I highly recommend staying at Cooper House.
4.6 on September 14, 2011
Our stay at the Munari Vineyard was wonderful. We were greeted warmly by Al, the owner, enjoyed some good wines, and were showed the property and our Suite. The bed was so comfortable and the bedroom and suite were very nicely decorated. We had a nice big balcony with a great view of the vineyards. Al was so nice to us, brought us some really good coffee, a warm fresh peach/strawberry pie, and fresh picked blackberries for breakfast. It was a very nice touch and Al is such a wonderful host. We can't wait to go there again! Nice little jewel of a place. Wish we could keep it a secret :-)

We had a FABULOUS time there! We loved it soooo much, we booked for our anniversery in October. Can't wait to go back :) Betty Espindola
4.4 on September 12, 2011
We stayed at Cooper House because other lodging arrangements fell through. Although Cooper House was further from our ultimate destination, the quality of service made the longer drives worthwhile. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The front porch is perfect for an evening cocktail. Tay's breakfasts are unbelievable! Calveras County is lovely. We stayed three nights and wished we had an excuse to come back again soon. Maybe someday....
5 on August 31, 2011
All I can say is that this is the best vacation home I have every stay in. It is so comfy with all the amenities, My family joined us for the weekend and we all had such an amazing time. I would stay here again and I can't wait to plan another trip to the Hengst House. I recommend this place.
4.4 on August 28, 2011
Everything was fantastic. Make sure you bring your own cleaning gear.

The whole experience at Cooper House was fabulous----The facility is VERY clean and run in a very friendly, professional manner. Rob and Tey are wonderful hosts and could not have been more attentive. They are always there to help in any way that they can without being underfoot. I would absolutely recommend it to a friend and will look forward to my next visit there!
5 on August 23, 2011
My husband & I were pleasantly surprised to have a very nice short stay at the Cooper House Inn. Rob & Tey were very nice, helpful and Tey made a wonderfully fresh frittata in the morning for our breakfast. Our room the "Chardonnay" was very nice and clean, the bed was comfortable & the little private deck was cute. We would definitely recommend this B&B and will keep it in mind when we come back to the area.
4.6 on August 23, 2011
A wonderful B&B! We loved the house, the porch, the furniture and all the details. The owners are very friendly, knew a lot about the history of the house and the town and made us feel at home. The location is great too, Angels' Camp and other Wild West Gold Rush towns in the neighbourhood (Murphys, Sonora) are very charming and special. A perfect stop to spend a day or two between Yosemite and San Francisco. Natalie and Willem

I will number this as my #1 b&b
4.4 on August 04, 2011
We recently visited Cooper House Bed & Breakfast and were pleasantly surprised to find such a nice place "tucked away" out of sight. It was our first visit to this area and to this B & B. The key features that made us feel good about our choice were the cleanliness of the facility, the top-notch breakfast (baked eggs and such, very yummy), the super comfy bed, and the overall homey feel of this establishment. Not to be forgotten was the friendliness of the owners, Rob and Tey. When we first arrived (early) we were greeted warmly by Rob who showed us our room (Chardonay room- loved it) and all the ammenities they had to offer. Our private bathroom was right next door to our room (I had no problems with that at all.) After our tour, Rob sat down and spent time visiting with us. We were wondering if he could suggest any place to eat dinner that evening and he named off a few suggestions. We opted for a local Italian restaurant he named . He said the restaurant can get very busy at times and asked what time we would like to go and went right over to the phone and made reservations for us. Great idea! Thank you Rob! Dinner was fabulous. The next morning my husband was not feeling well (he has minor stomach problems occasionally) and reluctantly decided he better not eat any breakfast until he felt better. Both Rob and Tey offered to fix him something light that might set well in his stomach- Tea and toast or whatever- They even offered to cook him something that we could take with us when we left so he could eat it later. Very thoughtful! My husband and I both would definitely go back here again and my husband vows that next time he WILL eat the fabulous breakfast they prepare.
4.8 on July 11, 2011
Tey was a wonderful host. The accommodations were fabulous. We had a wonderful breakfast and great time talking to Tey. We can't recommend the Cooper House enough.
4.2 on June 29, 2011
Felt very comfortable spending a night here on our way to Kings Canyon. Tey was a delightful host and breakfast was fabulous! We enjoyed the ambience here in contrast to other larger B & B's nearby and we really loved the charm of Angels Camp and all the "frog" lore there.
3.2 on June 26, 2011
There's nothing wrong with the Cooper House it just wasn't for us. It was clean, quiet, and comfortable. Only room lock was a slider inside the room, we had security concerns when not in our room(we had no problems though), and private bath doesn't mean attached. We did enjoy the snack refrigerators. The breakfast was good but nothing exceptional, when we stay at a B&B we've always had over the top breakfasts. Again, let me emphasize this is a fine B&B it just wasn't for us.

What a fun time with friends. Very spacious home in beautiful setting. Worth every penny.

Tey & Rob were the best! They put a lot of work & love into Cooper House. Breakfast was extremely good. Will definitely go back if in the area!

The Cooper House is a gem in the gold country. Impeccable service and the most scrumptious meals.

We were referred by my sister who had stayed here last month. We had a terrific time and were pleased with the attention to detail. Thanks for a lovely time!

Your hospitality was amazing. I enjoyed our time at your beautiful vineyard/winery and look forward to returning. We love your wines and view from the deck overlooking the vineyard was breathtaking both at night with a blanket of stars and as the sun peeked over the hill top to gently push out gray and kiss the valley with a touch of color. The fire and soft music in the tasting room was a delightful experience.

We had a wonderful but short one night stay at Cooper House. Tey is a wonderful host and the breakfast was great! The night before you choose your breakfast from yogurt and granola to unique egg dishes. The waffles were good too! Angel's Camp is a good home base for exploring the gold country.

We had a lovely stay and Tey was very gracious. He even made gluten free brownies for me, and I so appreciated that! We would love to go back again!

The rooms were very clean, the beds were very comfy, and the breakfast was AMAZING! To top it off the hosts were super friendly and accommodating! We were staying as a surprise spelunking and repelling trip for my boyfriends birthday. When I had mentioned this, they offered to leave out a note for his birthday. When we walked in the room, a cute and colorful "Happy Birthday" card was left next to a perfectly chilled bottle of wine. To top that off, it was storming the day we went spelunking and we came back soaked and tired. The host came out with loads of snacks and drinks to make us more comfortable. Way above and beyond what he had to do. In short- Cooper House was brilliant.

My husband and I have stayed in many B and B's over the years but I can truely say Cooper House tops them all! Tey and Rob are very welcoming and you leave there feeling you have made a friend, breakfast's were outstanding and Tey's nighttime dessert is off the charts! If you are dieting break it while you are there, trust me you won't be sorry :) We were so impressed we are thinking of renting the whole B and B for my husband's 50th B-day in the fall! I honestly can't say enough wonderful things about Tey, Rob and Cooper House! We plan and staying there many more times and are telling all our friends about it! Jennifer Sanchez

Tey and Rob are great hosts...love the treats and libations in the afternoon.

Innkeepers Tey and Rob are wonderful hosts and created a warm and inviting experience for us. It's really the best of both worlds--with a private deck to retreat to, but town only a two minute walk away. The food was delicious and room very comfortable. I would definitely recommend the Cooper House for a wonderful place to stay in Calaveras County!
5 on February 02, 2011
Tey and Rob were warm, kind, and friendly. We brought our 3 year old with us and they were very comfortable having her in their space. The rooms were immaculate, comfortable, warm, and just the right amount of rustic. We really enjoyed having access to refreshments throughout the day. Breakfast was amazing and we never felt rushed. The location of Cooper House is perfect - right near main street Angel's Camp. It is easy to get up to Arnold for a change of pace or Bear Valley to enjoy the snow and trees. Being only 2 1/2 hours outside of the Bay Area makes it an ideal place to go for a weekend. We plan to go back as much as possible!

Julie and I thank our hosts for the wonderful time we had. The attention to detail was wonderful. I will miss that warm fireplace on those two cold nights. Yes, the popcorn in Angels Camp is the best.

Great value!!!! As advertised, Tranquility Home Stay is no-host style with very large shared areas - kitchen, dining, huge great room, & large deck overlooking the stream. Everything was very comfortable. We stayed in Room #1 which has a private entrance and private bath. The other 2 rooms have a shared bath and enter through the front door. This is a very roomy private house with one room set aside for a massage & skin care business. We were there for Thanksgiving (Wed - Sat) & apparently there were few customers because we essentially had the place to ourselves. Located on Main Street so everything is within easy walking distance. Tey was very responsive via email & even provided information for Thanksgiving dining options. We will definitely return!!

It was so fabulous....coming home to a fire in the woodstove, relaxing music...such a nice treat even though it rained for a day of our stay...made for a very cosy atomosphere. The breakfasts were to died for...Mmmm Mmmm delicious!!!!

I arrived a couple of hours early for my reservation time. Tey, ever the gracious host, immediately made sure my room was ready, gave me a tour of the inn, advice on the town and, when my laptop didn't have proper hook-up, provided one from the office so that I could have my 'working holiday'. The ambiance is so special and the service so gracious that meeting other guests is like meeting old friends. We sat by the fire for wine and cheese, got acquainted, shared stories. Breakfast in my room made my morning easy and relaxed. A really great place for a getaway - and only 2.5 hours from the Bay Area.

My wife and I stayed here for our 20th wedding anniversary. What a great experience! Tay and Rob really made you feel at home. The room was great, the grounds were beautiful and the complimentary wine and soft drinks made it even better. The breakfasts were excellent (taste and presentation) both days we stayed and don't miss out on the late night desserts, truly delicious.

The stay at the Cooper House was fabulous. Rob and Tey were so enjoyable to be around. They made the most delicious snacks, breakfasts, and desserts. They were very accommadating to what we needed or would like to have to eat. They even helped me out with restaurants before I had even gotten so my husband coud make reservations. Rob was so sweet as to help me out to get a gift in the room before we got there for my husband. That touched my heart. Thank you Rob!!!! My husband and I will definitely spend time there again.

Wonderful experience at the Cooper House in Angels Camp last week. I had the Zinfandel Suite, which was very cozy. Love the robes and the bed was the most comfy that I have ever slept in. I was tempted to wrestle it out the back door into my car. For those interested in the Zin Suite, be forewarned that the bathroom is very tiny. Very tiny. More robust people would be greatly challenged by the shower. On the other hand, there is a flat screen with Direct TV in the bedroom. Tey and Robert were wonderful hosts and I would have stayed longer if I had the time. I was lucky to have the entire place to myself on an off-season weeknight, and I checked out the other rooms. Each is charming in it's own way, and I would stay at any of them. Robert filled me in on the history of the house. I actually dug the antique toilet from the old ship in one of the other bathrooms, and the "no molasses or sweet potatoes" story. Cooper is a Craftsman, and Tey and Robert did a beautiful job restoring it. It's very quiet and private. I loved the easy access outside from my suite, had a delicious breakfast on my private little patio. It's also right downtown just off the main street, so I could get up early and jog a couple miles around town and take pictures before breakfast. Tey offered appetizers when I arrived, wines and ports, and when I inquired about restaurants (a big problem in the early part of the week during the slower seasons is finding open restaurants), he called around to some of the nicer places in the area until he found an open (and highly recommended) one in Murphys that was fabulous. Tey even made me dessert when I returned from dinner. I also highly recommend Milliaire Winery tasting room in Murphys. Not only do they have great wines, but mention staying at Cooper House and you get a discount on wine!

I stayed at Cooper House for two days while I was running in a local race/mud run. We stayed in the Zinfandel room which was excellent. The staff was especially friendly and accommodating. The place was spotless, yet cozy and comfortable with a very relaxed atmosphere. The Cooper house is within walking distance to a couple restaurants and theater which was very convenient. The staff even provided some pointers on the local restaurants and helped up make the right reservation. Highly recommended if you're in the area!

We have stayed at many b&b's over the years and found Cooper House to be an average kind of place. Our room was nice, but the separate bathroom next door (not shared) could be an issue for some. The main room of the house is quite cluttered and needs a good clean out and reevaluation. This is probably just the result of the owners not seeing what the guests see, because they look at it all the time. We met Rob, one of the owners. He was quite pleasant. Both owners were extremely busy with a benefit they were working that weekend. We didn't feel neglected, however I would have some suggestions for the next time on how they could handle the breakfast service. I would love to talk to them about it sometime. Overall a good value. This is not a luxury establishment, however it is a beautiful old house in a fairly quiet part of town.

The Cooper House Inn Keepers took excellent care of our arrival needs, comfort, and we can not say enough about the hospitality and FOOD! Superb late night dishes and an incredible made-to-order breakfast. We highly recommend the Cooper House!
5 on September 21, 2010
Just to echo what has already been written, there is no doubt that we would love to return for a longer stay the next time. The setting is beautiful, the accommodations were top notch, and the amenities and personal touches were outstanding, but by far the best part of the stay, and really the entire B and B experience, is interacting with the gracious and helpful innkeepers/hosts, who brought everything together and helped make a grand experience. We hope to be back soon - now that we know not to rely on Mapquest to get us there.
5 on June 21, 2010
It's like coming home, only to no home I've ever known. We are able to make ourselves at home, yet we are pampered with delicious appetizers and wine in the afternoon, late night desserts and port after a concert and made to order breakfast in the morning. Tey and Rob go out of their way to make our stay perfect. From the individual butter bells to the antique pillow cases displayed on the walls, it's the most charming place to visit. You should give Angels Camp and Murphy's a visit and stay at Cooper House. You'll be glad you did.
5 on April 13, 2010
My husband and I had a delightful experience at the Cooper House. The open wine bar was a treat, and the homemade desserts were delicious. We were able to order a fabulous breakfast after a quiet, comfortable night. We plan to return, and bring some friends!
5 on March 27, 2010
Our stay with Rob and Tay far exceeded any expectations! They have to be the most hospitable Inn-keepers in the West! The hors d'oeuvres were amazing--silently appearing in their lovely comfy livingroom, just before we started out for dinner--in a wonderful restaurant they recommended and booked for us. When we arrived Rob said "I've got your creditcard"...we had been sweating its loss. The last place we visited guessed at where we were going, phoned and DEAR Rob drove all the way back to retrieve it!!!! If that doesn't speak for the "fabulous-ness" of The Cooper House B & B, nothing does. We had a wonderful, papered-feeling, stay! Oh, and breakfast was another matter!!! haute cuisine, absolutely delicious. Many thanks, Rob and Tay! George & Susie

Excellent service. We have never received such an outstanding spread. There was a beer/wine bar along with tea/coffee/biscotti bar available around the clock. The appetizers were wonderful. Dessert did not dissapoint. All these items were included in the cost of the room. The restaurant suggested was amazing, authentic Italian food. We are absolutely going back and HIGHLY reccomend this B&B. The owners definitely know what they're doing.

My husband and I had never stayed at a B&B. We made a great choice with the Cooper House Bed & Breakfast. It is a beautiful, warm environment. The breakfast was "too" much. Unbelievable !! Can't recommend the hospitality enough.
5 on November 30, 2009
The Cooper House is a most beautiful place and the owners keep it spotlessly clean. It is decorated to the ultimate for Christmas at this time of year. Tey did the greatest job for our party of four. The food is the best and the freshest available. It was a most wonderful experience. We will be back soon!!! It's just like being home with a warm fire going. Jim and Faith.

My husband and I stayed at the Cooper House as last-minute plans. What a lucky find! Everything was just as the other reviewers said - clean, cozy, great food, beautiful surroundings, fantastic food, lots of extras - and the owners are wonderful. I would definiately recommend to my family and friends, and we will return soon.

Went to Murpheys Ironstone Winery for Alan Jackson concert and booked at Cooper House for 1 night. They were the only B&B in area that would take less than 2 night booking. We couldn't believe the open wine and beer bar and homemade appetizers before we left for dinner. We were promised by innkeeper, Tey, that he would have homemade apple pie ala mode upon our return that evening. We didn't get back until Midnight and he was there waiting to serve the pie which was out of this world. We had been thinking about it during the concert and thought for sure we would miss out due to the lateness of our return. The breakfast was incredible and Rob, the other innkeeper, gave us a great tip on a gold mine tour that we took the next day and loved. We are returning in a few weeks and can't wait.

Upon meeting Tey, I felt I was visiting an old friend. He welcomed us with a big smile and a very warm and cozy atmosphere. Breakfast was exceptional. There was something for everyone. When Rob joined us for the weekend, we became a very happy family. The beds were wonderful comfortable leading to a great night's sleep. Shel & Elaine

Cooper House has got to be the best B&B in California! Tey and Robert are absolutely wonderful hosts! Their home is so nice and inviting. We got to lounge and visit in the living room each morning, enjoying coffee and the newspaper before breakfast. In the evening, we sat on the front porch and enjoyed the beautiful garden view along with wine and beer from the open wine bar! What more could we ask for! Breakfast was beyond our wildest expectations! The baked eggs and the frittata are to die for, and Tey was gracious enough to share the recipe! After wine tasting all day, we had excellent late afternoon appetizers, and then to top it all off, a late night dessert of coconut cream pie! We were so spoiled! It is hard to come back to the real world! Our room was lovely, with a comfy bed and plush robes. We would definitely recommend this B&B, and as a matter of fact, have done so to all of our friends. We are already planning our next trip back!!

Rob & Tey are exceeding gracious and hospitable. The food was absolutely wonderful. It was very relaxing and peaceful to stay there. I will gladly return for another stay and tell my friends and family about it.

With attention to our comfort obviously a primary concern, we were delighted to enjoy the gracious hospitality of Innkeepers Tey and Rob, whose joy in presenting this remarkable Craftsman home to its full advantage is keenly evident. The handcrafted meals, are obviously prepared with love -- don't miss the Mandarin orange pound cake -- and beautifully presented. The Zinfandel suite, with its private entrance and porch, is a gem; comfortable and thoughtfully appointed. Come to stay and be prepared to be welcomed, embraced and enveloped by the genuine warmth and wonder of Cooper House Inn. Niki Robison

My husband & our 2 kids (7 & 9) stayed at the Cooper House in the Cabernet room which consisted of a bedroom & an attached finished "sun room". Everyone was very comfortable, the kids were separate from us but connected. They slept on trundle beds, and we slept on a comfy queen (with crisp, clean and ironed sheets no less!). Plenty of parking was available right by the front gate to the property, with a nice garden walkway that lead us to the front door. We truly felt like we were the special guests of our closest friends. Tey was accomodating and friendly. He informed us about the locale, where to swim, where to "pan for gold" and the best places to eat. Wine and sodas were available to us throughout the afternoon, and the afternoon apps were scrumptious! (He even has kid friendly items special for us!) As our kids played in the arbor and picked fresh grapes from the grounds, my husband & I sat on the porch and enjoyed the peaceful view that the quiet & quaint neighborhood provided. Nestled in a quaint neighborhood just a block and a half from the historic part of Angels Camp, it was incredibly quiet (and possibly romantic if we didn't have our kids with us!). The house sits back off of the street so we never even heard a car go by! But it's close to town, so we could walk to dinner and the shops. Oh, and the breakfast! With so many gourmet choices (from extravagant shirred eggs with gouda, to simple buttermilk pancakes and eggs) it was tough to decide what to begin the day with. Overall, it was a wonderful stay and I wish Tey, Rob and the Cooper House all the success in the world. If our travels bring us back through gold country ever again, you can bet that we'll be spending our nights there. The value was incredible, the stay was splendid, everything was easy and enjoyable!

Tey and Rob, new owners, are outstanding innkeepers. They willing accomodated all our needs and beyond. Relaxing and quiet, comfortable rooms, outstanding breakfasts.
5 on July 02, 2009
This B & B is the best I've ever visited. The hosts Tey and Rob are superbly accomodating and equally as welcoming to the guests. The food is awesome and well presented. There are special surprises which I won't reveal. All of this at an amazingly reasonable rate. I was there for 3 days during the week and there was plenty of sightseeing to do and just plain relaxing whenever desired.

we left san francisco with all the stress of work and live and returned two days later feeling like new people, relaxed and happy and having a perfect escape form everything. the food was outstanding, the owners anticipate and take care of everything yiu could want. cooper house is filled with charm and cllean as can be. i would say...run, don;t walk , for a wonderful holiday. sandy

This adorable B&B is one of the most relaxing places we've stayed in a very long time. Tucked away in Angel's Camp, CA it's surrounded by flowering trees and a gazebo. The veranda is very comfortable and welcoming. Tey and Rob are the new owners, and as we got to know them, it's apparent that as time goes on, and they make it their own, it will be even more of a jewel than it is now. The breakfasts are incredible. Don't bother just asking for cereal, because Tey's culinary expertise would be sadly missed. This is a year round destination because everything is less than 1/2 hour to 1 hour away. If you want boating, skiing, zip-lining, or just relaxation, it's there. We hope you enjoy it as much as my husband, our friend and I did.

What a terrific place! The inn and the grounds are picturesque. The innkeepers are warm; we felt very taken care of. The food was outstanding. Breakfasts were terrific. We also arranged for dinner there because we didn't want to leave. Art R., San Francisco
