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...

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...

Sitting and viewing the gardens from your rocking chairs on Sequoia front patio is always a very relaxing experience. Thank you so much for sharing your Dunbar House experience!

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!...

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...

I needed to get away from the SF Bay Area for some much needed relaxation and return to nature but didn't want to make the long trip this year for my "Oregon fix."

Nice place, perfect location steps from downtown Murphys, and owners who truly have thought of every comfort -- from candy and nuts in the dining room to a Kindle in your room (right next to the well-stocked Keurig). Would definitely stay at the Dunbar again.
