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.
Ellen Dunbars sewing room and sun porch is a two-room suite decorated with the Inns French basket theme. A queen bed faces the gas-burning stove and the private sun porch extends in to the garden. Luxurious whirlpool bath and separate shower, English towel warmer, local bottle of wine, coffee and tea bar and stereo system. Cedar is designed with lush garden green, red and white colors. A French door leads to your secluded patio.
A romantic hideaway tucked into the attic overlooking the side garden. This spacious yellow and white room with a queen bed was the former innkeepers quarters. Claw-footed tub with vintage hand-held shower. Access to the room is up a steep stairway. A private deck adjoins the room.
From the former master bedroom, you can view historic Murphys and the Inn’s garden. The room is decorated in inviting colors of honey yellow, blue and green. The bathroom has a claw-footed tub with shower and also overlooks the garden. The four-poster king bed faces the gas burning stove.
The former library is perfect after a day of exploring the Gold Country. This large room offers elegance with its antique French screen and designer fabrics. Romantics can enjoy a bubble bath in a two-person whirlpool tub and shower. King bed is decorated in sumptuous colors of burgundy, chocolate brown and taupe. Secluded outdoor seating under the covered porch.
A suite with a large seating area leading to a private balcony in the trees. The former bedroom of the Dunbar sons, decorated in blue and white with a rose garden border. Enjoy soaking in the six-footed tub. Separate shower and English towel warmer. The queen bed faces the gas burning stove and has a view of the majestic elm trees out its French door.

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 :)

We’ve been to many B&B’s, but none as comfortable and welcoming as Dunbar House. We felt so pampered that we didn’t want to leave. The breakfasts and appetizers were amazing, but their homemade Chocolate Decadent Cookies were heavenly! The small touches and attention to detail are what makes this B&B stand out. Thanks Rich & Arline, we’ll be back!

We celebrated my wife's birthday over three days in early April. Booked the Cedar room midweek and had the place to ourselves. Our fabulous breakfasts were served in our room each morning and every afternoon we were greeted with appetizers and a bottle of wine from a local winery. Rich and Arline are great hosts and were very helpful in selecting restaurants and local sightseeing. Would highly recommend the Dunbar House.

My hubby and I stayed at Dunbar to celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary. This was our first B&B stay, and we loved it! We were the only guests in the house our first night, so we had the whole place to ourselves for Saturday and most of Sunday. Very romantic setting at our B&B and Murphy's is a beautiful and quaint lil gold rush era town (w/tons of wine tasting rooms just a short lil walk from Dunbar House!) Arline and Rich were wonderful hosts and our breakfast and snacks were delicious. Can't wait to go back again!

Dunbar House is everything a B&B should be. The rooms are cozy and warm, the staff are wonderful, the common spaces lovely, the numerous treats keep coming, and breakfast couldn't be better.

We heard this B&B was great but it was better than we had imagined. Five star breakfast and afternoon snacks, a beautiful room with every amenity imaginable and very friendly owners and staff. We can't wait to go there again!
