The Best Way to Spend Your Weekend Getaway From the Bay Area
Here are the three activities that will make for the ultimate weekend getaway from the Bay area.
1. Go to a Wine Tasting in Wine Country
Although Murphys is a small town, it’s loaded with a plethora of fantastic wineries and tasting rooms. We have a complete list of our favorite boutique wineries in Calaveras County. A few of our favorite places to check out include Milliare Winery, Indian Rock Vineyards, and Brice Station Vineyards.
If you’re a wine lover, you’ll love our daily wine hour at the Courtwood Inn. Each evening we serve local wines paired with artisanal cheese, crackers, fresh fruit, and other munchies. The best part about our wine hour—it’s free to all of our guests!
2. Explore Yosemite National Park
One of the best ways to destress and recenter yourself is to spend time in nature. Luckily for you, the Courtwood Inn is only an hour and a half away from Yosemite National Park. Embark on a day trip to Yosemite National Park and spend the day admiring the Sierra Nevada mountains, towering sequoia trees, vast Lake Tahoe, and fascinating hot springs.
3. Blow off Steam With Outdoor Activities
When it comes to ways to be active and spend time outside in the fresh air, Murphys has plenty of options. We suggest you go stargazing or explore some of the area’s biking trails and hiking trails. If you visit during the winter, head to Bear Valley and go skiing.
If you’re the sporty type, the Courtwood Inn is the perfect place for you to stay during your weekend trip. We have onsite tennis courts and offer an array of tennis packages. Whether you’re a skilled tennis player or are eager to try your hand at the game and learn, you’ll fit in just fine here.
