Dunsmuir California. Never heard of it? That's o.k., most people haven't. If you've ever been in the bay area and needed to drive to Oregon, you probably zipped right passed it. Located on the Interstate 5 under the shadow of Mount Shasta, Dunsmuir harbors ghosts of gold rush outlaws, east coast blue-bloods, railroad barons and century old speculators willing to bet it all in this stunningly rugged beautiful tumultuous landscape.
In modern times it calls to outdoor nomads, seekers of spiritual quests, individualists and is a Mecca for fly fishing purists.
Dunsmuir is in a tight river canyon with a village of 100 year old bungalows and a downtown pulled right out of a central casting movie set. How on earth did such a small town end up with so many multi-story buildings? It's as if a part of San Francisco was built along the Sacramento River a century ago.
If you're looking for an experience out your back door that is authentic, magical and inspiring, Dunsmuir has you covered.
If you're looking for a luxury hotel in the heart of Dunsmuir's historic district, Mossbrae Hotel, (named after our famous Mossbrae Falls) is the one to choose.
