Built in 1910 by Dr. Cooper and two young men, Alvin and Harry Hogarth as his family home and medical
practice. The Doctor’s medical practice area of the home is now the bed & breakfast’s Zinfandel Suite. The
good doctor and wife's bedroom is now the Chardonnay Deluxe Room and the children's bedroom with built-in
vanity is now the Cabernet Suite.
In 1992 the home was gentle transformed into a bed & breakfast. Proprietors Tey Cross and Rob Carpenter took over the property in May
2009 and have added their touch of a world class feel to the accommodations. From the moment you walk down the boardwalk to the
entrance, you know the home is something special. Classic craftsman details and simple beauty is the style of the Cooper House. Excellent
service and casual comfort is our standard.
Dr. Cooper was an immigrant sailor from England, who resided in San Francisco until the 1906 fire. In the later part of 1906 he moved to
Calaveras County, in 1910 he was appointed company doctor for the Utica Mining Co. He and his wife hosted the local fireman in the front
yard with beer, soft drinks, meats, cheeses and crackers. Over the years this tradition has been continued and evolved into the present
Fireman’s Day Celebration.
