“Great B&B!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

We loved our stay with Mike and Jody! They were such fantastic hosts! The breakfast was great, the rooms were beautiful and we loved the outdoor jacuzzi! They gave us loads of privacy and were very helpful- even providing us with a cooler and ice for our lunch in Yosemite (without us even asking!) We will definitely be staying here again!

After learning that all the hotels were sold out we went on Tripadvisor and found A Haven of Rest. We were only going to stay for one night but it was so nice we stayed for two. Cleanest stay of our ten day trip to California. Jody and Mike were wonderful hosts and we had our privacy. Loved the special waffles! Would recommend to anyone staying in the area.

I've always felt that it's important to read reviews of potential lodging before you travel, because your whole trip will be affected by the quality of your sleep, the cleanliness of your room, etc. You will also find that different people have varying opinions on what they like, hence reviews that are all over the place. As you read about A Haven of Rest, you'll find that guests give this B & B five stars by an overwhelming majority. The rating is well-deserved! You will have clean, spacious quarters that are kept cool in the summer. The food is delicious and plentiful. Mike and Jody will let you choose your breakfast time, which B & B's with more than one guest cannot offer. And you will discover extra touches like the video library, the fridge with complimentary water each day, etc. The owners go out of their way to make sure that you have everything you need, and are kind, personable, yet professional. Best of all, you will bask in the absolute silence at night - silence you will never find in a hotel with stompers in the room above you, or loud guests outside in the hall.

I recommend doing your research and knowing what kind of traveler you are. The drive to Yosemite Valley is over an hour, and it's a lot of driving to do over several days. That being said, you have a few choices that are closer. Would you like to rent a tent cabin in the Valley, crammed in with other guests, sharing bathrooms, etc.? No thank you! Are you wealthy and can afford the crazy high prices of the Ahwahnee? That's not us! Most importantly, can you afford to spend $270 + a night to be in a closer hotel, but sacrifice the high quality and personalized service of A Haven of Rest? Do you really want a hotel that serves buffet-style, low quality food, and has rooms with paper thin walls? After a long day of hiking, I'd much rather drive a bit farther to have my quiet guest quarters, with cold drinks in my fridge and a nice spa to sit in.

There is no doubt in my mind that I would choose A Haven of Rest every time. The experience was great in so many ways. Look at the overwhelmingly positive reviews, and come see for yourself.

Room Tip: My husband and I shared the King bed, which was perfectly comfortable. More importantly, my kids tho...

We had a delightful stay at A Haven of Rest B &B. The rooms were quiet and private and very well appointed. Jody and Mike seem to have thought of everything a guest might need. The breakfast was fabulous and so huge that we didn't need to eat until dinner. Great place to stay if you are visiting the southern part of Yosemite. We'll definitely stay again on our next Yosemite trip.

Room Tip: Only one suite.

We stayed two nights as part of our west coast trip. We really wished we had arranged to stay longer as our time in Yosemite was limited. Yosemite is such a wonderful place, Jody gave us some good advice on where to visit given our limited time.

The accommodation surpassed our expectations, it was exceptionally clean, private and most important to us had a really comfortable bed. Jody and Mike were most welcoming and the British flag was flying when we arrived.Breakfast was lovely served on the patio. Our hosts ensured that every need is catered for, we cannot think of anything that the suite required. Jody was kind enough to post on an item we left behind.

Thank you both for such a wonderful stay, we hope we can return soon but this time for longer!
Kindest regards
Phil and Gill

For our anniversary, we had reservations at Elderberry. Just across the street. Had a lovely stay. Jody could not have been more accommodating. In fact, we enjoyed our stay at B&B more than our dinner at Elderberry, which for us, was a tad "over the top" -- a lot of show with slow service.

Room Tip: only one room avail

We're very sorry your anniversary dinner was less than you expected. It was a pleasure visiting with the two of you. Especially hearing that we have a DVD of Yosemite made by you because it has been a great tool in sharing with guests about this great Park that is in our backyard. Your service as a ranger is appreciated!

Jody and Mike were the most wonderful Innkeepers. From the moment I first made contact regarding the reservation, until check out.

Jody greeted us with a huge welcome to her exceptionally clean home and showed us to our very private accommodation. She stressed that this was entirely for our use including the garden and to make ourselves at home. The hot tub was on and ready to use which was great we loved it!! The bed was probably one of the most comfortable I've slept in and there wasn't any noise surrounding (I'm a light sleeper). There were films that could be watched too. The breakfast was delicious!! The location for Yosemite was perfect and Tunnel View is a must see!!! Plus in Oakhurst there are supermarkets and Subway etc to buy good to take with you into the park. Jody very kindly offered us an ice pack to use also.

There wasn't one thing, even small that I could say negative about Haven of Rest a definite must stay.

Thank you Jody and Mike for our memorable visit to Yosemetie.
