My husband and I stayed here for two nights when we attended the January 2016 "Seeing the Elephants" weekend at the Performing Animals Welfare Association in San Andreas. Innkeepers Arline and Rich are extremely personable and have covered every detail that creates a wonderful stay! Of course, the rooms are immaculately clean. The breakfasts were as good as they come... More

There is not an amenity missing at the Dunbar house. So many comfortable details to appreciate. We stayed in the Sequoia Room. The bed was dreamy and the room was beautifully situated. The nice touch of fresh baked goods, in-room coffee, a kindle, a throw blanket, robes ... make it feel like home. We sat on the porch and laid... More

Sequoia is one of my favorites, and I'm so glad that you got to enjoy all the comforts of that room. I take pride in the breakfasts that are served to my guests, and I never like anyone to leave the table hungry. The next time that you come to stay with us, I will make sure that you get... More

We stayed in the Ponderosa room which was quaint, clean, spacious and comfortable.The fantastic prepared breakfasts alone are worth it. Arline was a very congenial host, chatting with us throughout our stay at breakfast and other times. She is very knowledgeable of Murphys and surrounding area. It's very apparent they enjoy owning and running the inn and meeting all sorts... More

We spent three nights at Dunbar House celebrating ou anniversary. Arline and Rich are excellent hosts. Our room (Sugar Pine) was very comfortable and was ver nicely furnished. The breakfasts were scrumptious, and the staff was pleasant and professional. We would return to stay if we visi Murphys again.

We enjoyed our stay at the Dunbar House. The rooms are clean, nicely decorated and appointed, and the grounds are lovely. Arlene and Richard made us feel very welcomed. Breakfast was delicious as was the freshly baked cookie bar upon our arrival to the room. I liked the quiet location, not being on the main street, but the B&B is... More

Dunbar House was a perfect place for a romantic Birthday getaway for my husband. We stayed 2 nights. Even though the house is done in period style, the room had lovely modern amenities like a TV, a spa tub, a CD player and a gas operated fireplace. Family style breakfast in the dining room was very enjoyable and the food... More

Beautiful home and garden in a quiet area just off Main Street. Excellent breakfast and housekeeping. We stayed in the Cedar room which would be wonderful for anyone but especially for old folks like us in that it is on the ground floor with a sitting area separate from the sleeping area and a private deck overlooking the garden.
