McCaffrey House Bed & Breakfast Inn, located in Twain Harte, California, is owned and operated by Michael and Stephanie McCaffrey.Michael & Stephanie McCaffrey

The McCaffrey House property was purchased by Stephanie’s parents in 1964 and has been a lifelong vacation retreat for the entire family. Over the years, winter weekends were spent skiing at Dodge Ridge, where Michael had been an instructor and Stephanie worked in the ski school office. Both McCaffrey sons raced on the Dodge Ridge ski team. Summers were spent in Twain Harte, from June to September, with Michael commuting.

When Michael began to think about retirement, his plan was to ski 100 days a year, fish, and paint. Stephanie, a highly energetic person, thought the retirement idea was a little limiting. Extensive discussions led to the assessing of their individual and shared talents – that include entertaining, culinary arts, decorating … and the discipline of entrepreneurial excellence. Thus, a shared vision was born – McCaffrey House Bed & Breakfast Inn.

The Inn is the result of nearly five years of design, planning, and construction on the site where the McCaffrey country cottage once stood. Despite the fact that the Inn is several times the size of the original cottage, the warmth and the coziness remain.

Over the years, we have provided lodging and a hearty breakfast for hundreds of travelers from all over the globe. We have made wonderful friends and enjoy one of the highest return guest rates in the bed and breakfast business.

We welcome your visit to our home, Sierra lodge … retreat from all worldly cares!

Relaxing and perfect! Arriving into this wooded getaway, we were welcomed with wine and cheese and crackers, and drank and munched happily on the deck looking out onto the pine and cedar trees. Stephanie made us feel right at home and the soft sheets, lovely balcony, and delicious eggs benedict for breakfast were an absolute delight ! We were totally enamored and will return again! ” – Boulder, CO
