We stayed there a few years back. What I remember the most is the food, being the foodie that I am. Chef Marie (I belive that's her name) made some fabulously exquisite dishes for breakfast. To this day, I even remember a wonderful granola mixture she made..something that sounds so simple, but had such a gourmet twist to it! There was a wonderful quiche..just wonderful.

The "back yard" is so spacious and not yard looking at all. It was like a mini getaway forrested park with trees and green lawn that stretched out back..rather big and nice if you want to sit out or walk around..it was huge so a few people could walk around back there and still feel some sense of privacy. The rooms were very old hollywood style (in my opinion)..we liked it a lot. A nice get away and I would recommend it!

Room Tip: The smaller room has a full bed which my husband and i thought was too small once we got there. Defi...

We spent a couple of nights during our fly drive to Calfornia. This place was magical and fun. We were made very welcome. The breakfasts were the best on the whole trip (and some of the others were pretty good!). Sitting outside, with the views and watching the humming birds made it a place to remember.
The advice given on the best routes and priorities to see made it a brilliant choice. Thanks

Room Tip: We liked the one with the library bathroom. Makes sense when you get there!

Just driving through on way to Kings Canyon , when on the right was this superb B and B behind a white wall looking like an escapee from the Caribean Islands. We stayed . best decision on a 2 week holiday in California .Sumptous accomodation. delightful breakfast . Wonderful hosts , who told of the experiences of life in the colony of Lemoncove. Pool, garden and a feeling of having reached paradise early. Too soon we had to off to earthly destinations, but not before a n outstanding nearby restaurant and a great nights sleep under a swirling fan . Heaven . Do not miss when nearKings Canyoy or Sequoia Parks.

Room Tip: Any.All have view of garden and pool

We absolutely loved this place! Wow! Chef Marie's gourmet breakfasts were amazing....
The theme of Gone with the Wind was so fun. A great place to go for a romantic weekend!
Both Scott and Marie Munger were our most gracious hosts.....We had attention when needed and privacy as well...What more can you ask? And oh, the nightly swim in the heated pool under the stars......well, need I say more?

We stayed 3 nights on the "stay 2 get 3rd free" offer. Unfortunately our larger room was not available for the 3rd night, so we were in a very small room with a small double bed - cosy!! The bathroom was across the corridor! The service was pleasant & helpful - the place was clean & there was a pool & a very interesting jacuzzi; breakfast was gourmet style - but i did miss my toast & marmalade. No fridge or coffee maker in the rooms - but there is a communal area for making drinks & ice. The only downside is that it is situated on a busy road & the decore is a little worn & outdated - lace glued to the bathroom wall!! every picture & ornament is themed to "Gone with the Wind"

Room Tip: rooms facing the front - where there is a very small balcony face the road so are noisy these in...

This place was amazing from the room to the pool and lawns and the delicious meals by Chef Marie! After sight-seeing trips to Sequoia it was so wonderful to come back and get into the pool under the stars. The grounds were beautiful and it was so relaxing to just sit back and watch the birds. Breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. Would highly recommend this place.

Front rooms are facing the road and are terribly noisy for sleeping. The hotel is full of vain old frills but not practical at all. The rooms are small, no table, no good chairs, no TV, no A/C, an inch gap under the doors and balcony doors. The house layout is crammed and the rooms have no sound isolation and therefore all the traffic noise wakes you up at 6 am in the morning. The smell of coffee or baking from kitchen wakes you up through an old conduit leading into the rooms in the very early morning as well. Bath is a bathtub in the room which may be erotic but not practical.
Breakfast is excellent in the company of flies, despite the attitude of the owners toward non-Americans.
I could not sleep well for 2 nights there, terribly tired and exhausted left the hotel...
