The Basics


Courtwood Inn is a cedar log lodge on five acres, just two miles from the center of Murphys. To reach our hilltop B&B, you'll travel the last half mile on a bumpy gravel road. But it's worth it for the amazing view and peace and quiet of the setting. Our property also boasts two championship tennis courts for guest play and lessons. And you can book a relaxing massage for afterward in our massage room.

This was a great Inn. So clean and beautiful! The view was amazing! Larry and Chris were the best hosts, so friendly and accommodating . The food was amazing! Chris is a fantastic chef! The massage therapist Kim was just the greatest, she is one of the friendliest and most caring massage therapists I have ever met. We will most definitely return.

Court wood is outstanding in every aspect. Location(great views), cleanliness, food, rooms, service, and hosts. Couldn't ask for anything more. If you're into tennis this is a don't miss place.

Second time staying here and we have loved it both times. Super nice places with great views, super friendly hosts, amazing breakfast, and they do all of the extra things to make your stay amazing. Love the shuttle service to the concerts and the dessert that’s waiting for you when you return.

Delightful "B & B" just a few minutes outside the gold rush town of Murphy's. Secluded and quiet with mountain and forest views. Exceptionally large rooms and baths. Large, quiet public spaces. And best of all, the proprietors, Larry and Chris.
