We stayed at the Dunbar house for two nights while visiting the PAWS sanctuary in San Andreas. The house is charming and comfortable with all the conveniences we needed. We were on the first floor in a room with a comfortable king sized bed and double jacuzzi. The property is immaculate, inside and out. Complimentary home baked cookies, fudge, a... More

We arrived, Arlene greeted us at the door and showed us around the property. Then we were taken to our room on the 2nd floor. The stairs are very narrow. The Sugar Plum room was very nice. We brought our suitcases upstairs and then received a phone call from Arlene, asking us if we rather stay downstairs at no additional... More

We had a great trip to Murphys for our anniversary, and really enjoyed the hospitality at Dunbar House. We will definitely go back. The room was very "B&B" with a lot of gold-rush-era touches, yet still quiet and with modern conveniences. Breakfasts were very tasty and exceptionally well presented. Our host and her staff were very welcoming and helpful.

My husband and I spent one night at the Dunbar House on our way to Lake Tahoe. We were delighted with our stay at this historical B&B. We stayed in the Sequoia Room and had the porch all to ourselves. The refrigerator was stocked with a bottle of local wine, beer, water and appetizers. The bedroom was beautifully decorated and...

My husband and I decide to stay at our first ever B&B on one of the days of our honeymoon. Not knowing what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised at how at HOME we felt. Everyone on staff made us feel so very welcome. From the moment we walked into the front door, while we sat outside on the porch... More

Made my yearly visit to Dunbar House. I was delighted to see the upgrades: the Keurig coffee machine in my room! And what could be better---reading on the Kindle they provided while relaxing in the hammock in their beautiful garden! Heaven! I also loved the newly remodeled dining room and the new linens on the bed. I am privileged to... More

We just returned from our second stay at Dunbar House; it was even better the second time. Arline and Rich are dedicated and gracious hosts. The Cedar room is terrific with its private porch and deck. The daily complimentary wine, appetizers, and cookies are a nice touch. And, the free tickets to the sold out Saturday night concert were a... More

Beautiful gardens, location couldn't be better, generous daily treats of local wine bottle, water bottles, freshly made cookies, light o'dourves. Breakfast was unbelievably romantic in the gardens, presentation a work of art with fruit, berries, egg soufflé, pastry. We have two criticisms: we stayed two nights and our room was not made during out stay, and the shower is too... More

First and foremost, I am in no way affiliated with this B & B. With that said, if you're looking for a true little piece of heaven-on-earth, do yourself a favor and schedule a weekend at The Dunbar House. The grounds are perfectly groomed, and the location of the property is bar-none --walking distance to everything in downtown Murphy. The... More
