And the cake is so good you get to eat it too! For Breakfast! These folks really know how to do things up right! The accomodations are superb. The location is superb. Their hospitality and attention to detail..again, superb. But the Breakfasts...beyond superb! They are masterpieces. And then there are the afternoon appetizers in your room plus scrumptious cookies and...

We enjoyed a couple of quiet, relaxing days at Dunbar House in early May. The home is very welcoming, and our bedroom (The Sequoia) was spacious and comfortable. We were pleased (and amazed) at the array of goodies provided! Fresh-baked cookies. Homemade fudge. Delicious, and beautifully presented, breakfast. And then -- a bottle of wine and appetizers every day! Wow....

Been long time fans of the Dunbar House in past years. Gave gift certificate to family members who couldn't stay entire weekend, so decided to enjoy it ourselves! This unexpected opportunity to revisit exceeded our expectations! The best ever fudge and cookies and did I mention the horsd'oeuvre and wine in the fridge upon arrival! It doesn't get better than...

32nd Anniversary Enjoyed our first visit to Dunbar House 1880 and Murphy’s. With the exception of the shower/tub arrangement, our stay in the Blue Oaks room was lovely. This spacious attic apartment was so nice. A little disappointed that there were no other guests to share our delicious breakfast and dining experience with, but owner Arline took some time to...

Nice B&B. Hostess very pleasant and Best Breakfast at a B&B in a long time or maybe ever. Fun walking around Murphys and tasting the wines. Did the Sat. morning walking tour and got some history of the area but had enough and broke off from the tour.

My wife and I flew in and drove to this beautiful area. We had planned our PAWS seeing the elephants trip for several years, and it was amazing. This is a great option. It is a 20 minute drive to PAWS, but the drive is beautiful and worth. We loved our stay and the old world charm. The food was...

We really enjoyed the Dunbar house for out stay in the spring. They made our stay in the Gold country just perfect. From the well tended and equipped room, to the beautiful breakfasts, there was nothing else we needed. It's a lovely home, comfortable and situated close to all the restaurants, and the Main Street. We will surely stay there...

We stayed at the Dunbar house for two nights while visiting the PAWS sanctuary in San Andreas. The house is charming and comfortable with all the conveniences we needed. We were on the first floor in a room with a comfortable king sized bed and double jacuzzi. The property is immaculate, inside and out. Complimentary home baked cookies, fudge, a...

We arrived, Arlene greeted us at the door and showed us around the property. Then we were taken to our room on the 2nd floor. The stairs are very narrow. The Sugar Plum room was very nice. We brought our suitcases upstairs and then received a phone call from Arlene, asking us if we rather stay downstairs at no additional...
