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. That's a first. We appreciated our host, Arline, taking the time to sit with us at breakfast and provide some insight into the history of the house and the surrounding area. We would recommend a visit to Dunbar House. I'm thinking we should plan a visit in the late fall or winter so we can lounge in front of the fire in the sweet and comfy living room / parlor.
Our activities included: hike at Big Trees; a visit to Ironstone vineyard; a walk about the town of Murphys; an open house event at PAWS (Performing Animal Welfare Society) which was educational and inspiring.
We enjoyed dinners at Grounds and Alchemy. Both were good, but portions are quite large. Entrees are good candidates for sharing if you don't have a big appetite. Aria Bakery is a great little place for pastries or lunch. Yummy!
