We love the Dunbar House. It is our go-to place when in Murphys. As a result, it always feels like home to be there. The staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is great. Easy walk to the downtown wine tasting rooms and shops. We love the Poplar Suite. It is an apartment with a full kitchen, living room, dining area and bedroom. Works great for us, as my husband is an early riser so he has a place to relax while I sleep a bit longer!

What a fabulous stay at Dunbar House. We stayed in the Blue Oak room. Quaint, cute, and quirky! We were greeted our first night by what we believe was a friendly ghost! Not scary at all... just some strange occurrences that made us think we had a paranormal friend! Breakfast is fantastic- I highly recommend the eggs Benedict! This was a 5-star stay in my opinion. My only wish was that the tv in our room was so old and so small... definitely needs an update. Overall, if that’s my only complaint, I really must not be complaining (who watches tv at a bed and breakfast, anyway?!)

Oh my, I had not heard we had a friendly ghost, good to know! We are very happy we were able to provide you and your daughter a delightful stay. The egg benedict seems to be a big hit, I will be sure to let the Chef know of your approval. Yes, in deed the Blue Oak is a bit "quirky" and the TV is on the list of items to update in that particular room. Thank you again, for the pleasure to host your stay and we look forward to seeing you and your daughter again soon. Hopefully with a updated TV and our friend the ghost will be as playful and mischievous behavior as during this visit.

My wife and I had a wonderful weekend at the Dunbar. Great room, wonderful eggs Benedict breakfast, welcoming staff. The garden and grounds are amazing - lush and colorful. The inn’s wraparound porch is a great place to enjoy your morning coffee and listen to the birds. We will be back!

We stayed in the Sugar Pine. Could not have asked for better weather. The location was perfect for downtown strolls. We enjoyed the room comforts and Jim did a great job with Breakfast. Cannot wait to do it again.

Stayed one night April 2021. Everything at this location is perfect. The BandB is right downtown on a quiet side street and is very close to everything. Make sure to visit the Ironstone Winery which is exceptional (include the museum). At the time of year we went the shops are mostly closed Monday-Wed, quiet on the Thurs that we went but are supposedly very busy on a weekend day. Highly recommend the Dunbar house.
