“A perfect stop to or from Yosemite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2011

Jackie and Jerry are perfect hosts and made us feel right at home. It was wonderful to wake up to fresh fruit and omlets prepared with their own eggs. We are looking forward to visiting again.

My husband and I celebrate our 40th anniversary this year. We stayed twice with Jackie and Jerry. The grounds and ambiance are lovely - she has her own beautiful flock of chickens that produce speckled and even blue green shelled eggs! He is a motorcycle specialist with antiques and his own designed vehicles in process. Landscaping to die for. Jackie picked us up from the AMTRAK station and returned us for our trip jnto Yosemite and back to San Francisco. She also recommended great eating spots AND transported us to them, picking us up at a cellphone call to return and relax. Jackie's breakfasts are so delicious and healthy too -- fresh organic fruits and eggs star in this.

The hospitality, great food, good companionship we felt made us feel so at home. Merced and Serenity Gardens will live in our memories.

We stayed in the Alaska room which features a spa tub, which greatly eased my husband's complaining back (he is not a fan of long plane rides).

We just stayed here for three nights and absolutely LOVED every minute of it! I second what everyone has said in previous reviews--they are wonderful hosts, the dogs are fun and friendly, the room was perfect (we stayed in the Alaskan), and location is easy to find, very convenient for visiting the area and more. Like others, we were sad to have to leave and will definitely return when we have the chance. For the money, you will not find better accommodations, plain and simple :)

We were blown away by our stay at Serenity Gardens and now wouldn't want to go to Yosemite without staying there. Our hosts were so gracious and welcoming that when we returned at night from Yosemite, we felt like we were returning home.
Their home is elegant and lovely. Jackie's made-to-order breakfasts are delicious and included fresh eggs from her chickens and fruit from local farmers. As amazingly beautiful as Yosemite is, our stay at Serenity Gardens was one of the highlights of our trip.

We stay here for two nights using it as the base for Yosemite. Everything about the stay was 5 star - the food; the accommodation; the welcome; the company - the whole package. Jackie and Jerry were friends rather than hosts. We enjoyed every minute and would recommend this home from home to anyone without reservation.

We stayed at Serenity Gardens in October 2010 while in town for a friend’s wedding and all four of us were thrilled as we arrived in what seemed like the nicest neighborhood in town. The Inn is a very nice, large custom built home which has 3 B&B rooms and amazing gardens in the front and back. A spectacular part of the home is one of the bathrooms adjacent to the upstairs bedrooms which is absolutely huge. It includes a Jacuzzi Tub which is a nice, relaxing surprise. The room set up is perfect for a family traveling together or a couple wanting a romantic spa arrangement. A stay at Serenity may include meeting the chickens out back or eating a few of the fresh strawberries growing on the property. Some people may enjoy the Inn's cool motorcycle shop and for culinary enthusiasts, you will surely appreciate their homemade Pomegranate Jelly and breakfast Frittata. If you travel near Merced California or any of the towns around the area or if you need a relaxing break and can drive to Merced, book a stay and you'll be very happy you found Serenity!

We have stayed for 2 nights in Serenity Gardens as a base for our 1 day trip to Yosemite, and as a part of San Diego - San Francisco road trip.
Since Yosemite was very expensive place to stay, we decided to sleep in Merced, and drive 2 hours to the park entrance.
The house is very nice, decorated with style and athmosphere is wonderful. They have 3 rooms and we were in small one, Alaska. Actually the room was quite big to be advertized as small.Was decorated with skins and other alaska speciailities. The bathroom was HUGE :) 2 sinks, jacussi, shower room and toilet. First time I have seen such a bathroom .Free Wi-Fi is also available in the room.
The hosts Jerry and Jackie were very friendly, and we felt like an old family friends coming to visit them. In the morning we were prepared a wonderfull breakfast with her home grown chicken eggs omlete and fruit salad.
Overall, this is the best place I have stayed in USA and would highly recommend to anybody. I put some pictures to prove my 5* vote.
Thank you very much Jackie and Jerry!
