Great house of history and beauty! Staff and owners are nice, breakfast great! Room great! Hope you stay here! It's walking distance to many great eats, try the V restaurant for the best food ever. Their lamb dish was amazing, great sushi around the corner as well.

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

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.
