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.

Wonderful place, location and amenities as well as great owners. We stayed in the Sequoia Room and loved the king sized bed, great views of the front porch and garden as well as the large spa tub to relax in after a long day of walking and drinking wine. Breakfast was a delicious fritatta and fruit with orange juice, coffee/tea!... More

My husband and I often go to Murphy's for our anniversary. After a very dissatisfying visit to our previous B & B in Murphy's, we decided to try Dunbar House. What a world of difference. We had a wonderful room - Sugar Pine. The bed was comfy with a beautiful balcony that looked out at green trees. It is with... More
