“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

Very large and well furnished suite (we stayed in the "sunrise suite"), great views and the owners were extremely friendly and helpful in planning trips and hikes in Yosemite. Daily breakfast was delicious. There is also a BBQ here; we stayed three nights and cooked our own dinner every evening. While it's an hour and a half to get into Yosemite valley from here, that is more than made up for by the peaceful setting which gives you a sense of space and an escape from the crowds. Highly recommended.

My wife and I stayed here toward the end of March. It was just right for us.

We arrived around 5:30pm. The bed and breakfast is about a 10 minute drive from Oakhurst, the nearest town. Self check in was not a problem. Because it was off season, we did not even see the owners until we checked out and paid (3 nights later). This was fine for us. However, they do provide their contact info and are easy to get in contact with of you need anything.

We stayed in the Sunrise Suite. Wonderful view from the front door/deck area. Plenty of room. A small kitchenette with a sink, microwave, mini fridge and dishes (no stove). The lobby area, open 24 hours, has a good selection of DVDs you can barrow and watch in your room.

My one negative comment is that the walls seem to be a little thin. If you happen be staying next to a noisy neighbor who stays up late, I think that could be a problem. It was not a problem while we were there. I could hear the TV from the next room one night, but it wasn't late and wasn't annoying.

One thing to note: This location is just over an hour drive from Yosemite. This should be obvious if you're doing your research. But it's something to consider when making your plans. It's roughly equally far from 2 Yosemite entrances. It's worth going both ways.

Oakhurst, the nearest town, is small and doesn't have much - but it does have everything you could need...drug stores, restaurants, antiques, grocery stores, etc.

Overall, a pretty good stay.

Room Tip: Sunrise Suite had a great view from the patio area.

We stayed here in July of 2013. It was a very good experience. The room was clean, the other guests we quiet at night and friendly at breakfast. The inn keepers were very helpful and made a breat breakfast! we would definitely stay here again!

This was our first accommodation in california on our road trip. John and Brenda made our stay here memorable. Big spacious rooms with all facilities you could need. A generous great breakfast and loads of good advice to make most of your visit to the yosemite area. I would love to go back in summetime for 7 to 10 days to unwind. This is a perfect place to come to rest. We only spent 2 nights there and 9 months later we keep talking about the breakfast, the warmth of John and Brenda and the very relaxed place. Enjoy a beer on the terrace, Light the bbq and enjoy. A warm hello from belgium!

We stayed here for two nights to visit Yosemite National Park – and wish we could have stayed longer! Brenda and John are lovely, and gave us really good advice on places to visit/routes to take and where to go for dinner. The rooms were really big and clean, and both mornings had breakfast cooked for us by John. We stayed in the Sunrise suite, and the balcony outside had some amazing views – best part was sitting with a glass of wine after a long day in the park. Oakhurst is only a 10 minute drive away for food shopping and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone visiting Yosemite.

My wife and I went here for a quick over night to get away from home. I read the reviews and it all looked good. Good is not enough to describe this B and B. the rooms are large and furnished very nice. The kitchenette is big and has all the basics you might need, a better cork screw might be needed, but other than that it's all there. The room was spotless clean to the point it would pass the white glove test, don't think I've ever stayed in a cleaner place. The owners are very friendly, cool to say the least. The bath towels were great, nice and soft and looked new. There is a large deck off the building and my wife even saw some deer in the evening from the deck. Nice chairs on the deck make a great place to enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sunset. I would highly recommend this place, it's truely fantastic and very reasonable in the off season.

Room Tip: For the best deck views stay in the Sterling suite or the Sunrise suite.

We stayed in the cabin (oak & pine suite) which were very spacious & comfortable. There is a deck and plenty of outdoor space around the cabin for BBQ and relaxing. There is no particular view from the cabin, for that you walk 1min to the deck on the main building were the view is absolutely wonderful. We sat there for breakfast every morning & only the grandeur of Yosemite was enough to pull us away. Brenda & John prepared a very nice & plentiful breakfast & were happy to take the time to talk with us about anything we wanted to know. They are both really great people. We ate at the Hitchin Post the first night which is just 3 mins drive away which provides good value meals (nothing fancy but friendly service & a good range with large portions). Oakhurst is about 10 mins away with a wide range of restaurants if you want a change. Although it is a bit of a drive from the centre of Yosemite I would definitely stay here again when visiting the park.
