“Fantastic doesn't do it justice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2010

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!

Travelling from Yosemite back to the west coast, we selected Merced as a good halfway stopover point & Serenity Gardens based on Trip Advisor reviews. We were glad we did as location was very convenient, accommodation was excellent & hosts Jackie & Jerry could not have done any more for us. Accommodation was what we had hoped for & just right, a nice quiet room with a huge bathroom. The house was lovely, very comfortable & we were made to feel almost like old friends. We had some great conversations over a home cooked breakfast with plenty of choice - the best breakfast we came across during our 3 week road trip. Jackie & Jerry are perfect hosts, even delivering tea & coffee to our door while we got up in the morning. We would recommend Serenity Gardens as a perfect stopover if you are looking for a place between the west coast & the Yosemite area. We didn't see enough of the town to recommend the area, but for a nice B&B you could do a lot worse.

After a few days staying in cabins and tents while in Sequoia and Yosemite, it was a delight to stay in this lovely home. Jackie and her husband made us feel very welcome in their stunning house. The rooms were fantastic and the breakfast in the morning delicious. It was close to a wide variety of restaurants for the evening meal too. Roughly 2 hours from Yosemite and 2 hours from Monterey, in our opinion it is a perfect place to stop. If the teens were impressed that says it all. They thought it was the nicest place we stayed the whole trip. Thanks Jackie

I had the pleasure of staying at Serenity Gardens Bed and Breakfast twice this past week. It is a wonderful place. The house is large and inviting. Jackie and her husband were so nice and went out of their way to make my stay extra special. The breakfast was perfect. I highly recommend Serenity Gardens Bed and Breakfast if you are going to stay in the Merced area.

A friend and I were visiting Yosemite and we reserved a couple of rooms at this bed and breakfast hoping for a little personal touch on the way home after days of adventure.

I cannot tell you how delighted and blessed we both felt with the amazing hospitality we received from this couple. From the time we arrived to Ms. Jackie and Mr Jerry offering help with baggage, to the cold soft drinks and water offerred, the friendly and funny conversation, lovely and clean rooms, gorgeous gardens front and back, two friendly dogs, chickens and a tour of both their hobby areas-creative spirits both. Additionally in the morning we received fresh fruit compote, again healthy servings of hospitality and omelettes made with fresh eggs from their chickens and wonderful fresh vegetables and meat if we desired. The omelette was delicious and their was also fresh cold or hot drinks offerred or both!

Although I loved the availability of this place, I cannot help but write what a delight it is to you and thank them both for providing such a delightful stay and suggest that you not miss this opportunity for a delightful stay if you are close to Merced.

Thank you, Ms. Jackie and Mr. Jerry!
