Celebrated a 2 day anniversary get away on a Thursday and Friday and it was our first time staying at a B&B. Very charming room with nice amenities and the breakfast was wonderful. But we did not receive complimentary wine or appetizers as "promised" when we booked our room and did not feel our place to have to ask. However,... More

This was a great way to spend my birthday in this charming B&B and the town of Murphys. We were spending two days at the elephant sanctuary in San Andreas called PAWS, "Performing Animal Welfare Society" and they selected the B&B for us. We had never been to the Sierra Foothills before and we found the area quite beautiful. We... More

We really needed to get away and unwind. Wow did this do it! Every day there were appetizers with wine and beer, home made cookies, fudge and more, fabulous breakfast on our own patio (we had the Sequoia Room). The grounds - just beautiful. The hosts and staff very friendly and professional - if you want information or to chat,... More

The breakfast was a feast that incorporated delicious food and a beautiful presentation . Well done! We enjoyed walking through the well-kept gardens and... More

And the cake is so good you get to eat it too! For Breakfast! These folks really know how to do things up right! The accomodations are superb. The location is superb. Their hospitality and attention to detail..again, superb. But the Breakfasts...beyond superb! They are masterpieces. And then there are the afternoon appetizers in your room plus scrumptious cookies and... More

We enjoyed a couple of quiet, relaxing days at Dunbar House in early May. The home is very welcoming, and our bedroom (The Sequoia) was spacious and comfortable. We were pleased (and amazed) at the array of goodies provided! Fresh-baked cookies. Homemade fudge. Delicious, and beautifully presented, breakfast. And then -- a bottle of wine and appetizers every day! Wow.... More

Been long time fans of the Dunbar House in past years. Gave gift certificate to family members who couldn't stay entire weekend, so decided to enjoy it ourselves! This unexpected opportunity to revisit exceeded our expectations! The best ever fudge and cookies and did I mention the horsd'oeuvre and wine in the fridge upon arrival! It doesn't get better than...

32nd Anniversary Enjoyed our first visit to Dunbar House 1880 and Murphy’s. With the exception of the shower/tub arrangement, our stay in the Blue Oaks room was lovely. This spacious attic apartment was so nice. A little disappointed that there were no other guests to share our delicious breakfast and dining experience with, but owner Arline took some time to...

Nice B&B. Hostess very pleasant and Best Breakfast at a B&B in a long time or maybe ever. Fun walking around Murphys and tasting the wines. Did the Sat. morning walking tour and got some history of the area but had enough and broke off from the tour.

My wife and I flew in and drove to this beautiful area. We had planned our PAWS seeing the elephants trip for several years, and it was amazing. This is a great option. It is a 20 minute drive to PAWS, but the drive is beautiful and worth. We loved our stay and the old world charm. The food was... More
