About

Step back into Old World Charm at Dunbar House 1880, where you can relax in comfort and ease. Dunbar House is an intimate, romantic and private haven for adults only. Enjoy homemade Rosemary Lemonade and cookies on the porch, or sip freshly ground coffee in the parlor by the fire. Delectable afternoon appetizers with hand-crafted local wine await you in your room. You are invited to stroll through the century-old rose garden, and curl up with a book in the hammock, surrounded by soothing sounds from the trickling water fountains. It's an easy walk to dinner, art galleries, and boutiques. A stroll down tree-lined Main Street Murphys remains much the same as it was during the great Gold Rush, alongside upscale new additions.

Had a great stay here for New Years. The room was outstanding and the owners took care of my girlfriend and I. Will be back soon for another holiday weekend. Thank you Arlene and Rich.

This was our second visit to the Dunbar House, 1880 and we wished we had booked two nights instead of one! We will definitely return for another stay in the spring or fall...or maybe both :)
