Why have just a one day event, when you can have an unforgettable wedding weekend?
The Dunbar House Inn and Event Property is the only event venue located right in the heart of the quaint town of Murphys, CA. This unique location allows couples and their guests to experience a wonderful wedding weekend within convenient walking distance of all that Murphys has to offer. Premiere restaurants, fabulous wine tasting rooms, and eclectic shops all line Main street, just a few steps away.
The lovely Italianette-style estate was originally built in 1880, and offers the regal beauty and stately elegance of a time gone by... A perfect backdrop to host an intimate wedding weekend with all your friends and loved ones! Each of our 6 unique rooms have been carefully decorated to maintain their historic charm, yet have been completely updated with modern amenities. The bridal party can get ready in luxury in our two room bridal suite, complete with private bedroom, open area lounge and full kitchen. The sprawling, well manicured gardens and grounds are ideal for a variety of ceremony and reception set-up options.
We can accommodate wedding ceremonies and receptions of up to 150 guests. Once you arrive, you and your guests will step back in time and enjoy a welcome weekend retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life. In addition to the 6 rooms available at the Dunbar House Inn, we are also able to accommodate up to 64 of your other guests in nearby accommodations.
