“What a relaxing weekend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2012

What a great place to get away for a long weekend. Time slows down when you are looking out the back porch of the "cottage" where we stayed. The view from the back porch is an amazing canyon/valley that drops right off the back with a beautiful little creek at the bottom.

Clay and Joy the owners were very hospitable and knowledgeable about the area. We had so much fun hanging out around Mariposa and the B&B we didn't even feel it necessary to make the drive to Yosemite.

Can't wait to get back!!!

Room Tip: The cottage was great for a small family to stay in. Full kitchen and two full bedrooms and bathroom...

Overall, I really liked this place. The service was solid and friendly. Breakfast is served at 9 am every day. We choose to do our own thing for breakfast as we wanted to be out of the door earlier.

It is 2 hours from Yosemite Valley Floor with little traffic. We wished we would have stayed closer.

Positive: Full kitchen that is stocked with coffee to things you would need to make a meal. It really is out of town and secluded. It is about a 10 min drive to Mariposa.

I would spend a weekend here to get away from San Fran, but I would try to find another place closer when I go back to Yosemite next time.

We stayed here for 2 nights in Sep 2011 as part of our honeymoon/road-trip. We arrived mid-evening after a longish drive from San Francisco and were made exceptionally welcome by Clay and Joy (the owners). On learning that we planned to go to Mariposa for our dinner, Clay produced a list of all the restaurants with his recommendations and was helpful and friendly throughout.

The B & B is approximately 50 miles from the entrance to Yosemite but this was not an issue as it was such a beautiful drive. The B & B has a beautiful rear deck overlooking a tree-lined valley where you can see lots of wildlife. Clay and Joy invited us to join them for a BBQ on our second night.

On our last morning, we had a lovely home cooked breakfast in the kitchen of the main house and it was a really nice change from the impersonal service we had received elsewhere. We left with a list of recommendations of things to see on our drive down the Pacific Coast Highway.

All this at a very reasonable price, so very highly recommended!

This place is awesome! Too bad we could only stay for one night, I hope I'll be able to go back one day. There is a small cozy pool, a wonderful view on the balcony and the room are spacious and really clean. The owner and his wife were incredibly kind to us and made us feel at home. Thanks again!

My husband and I stayed at this B&B in August when we wanted to visit Yosemite for 3 days. It is about an hour from the two entrances of Yosemite, but the drive is pleasant and the B&B was what made our Yosemite trip much better!

We arrived at the B&B with no idea of how to divide our time in the various activities in Yosemite and Clay basically mapped it all out for us. That saved us a lot of research time! Clay and his wife are very accommodating on random requests; genuinely warm and caring people.

The surroundings are beautiful and very peaceful and I am pretty sure we saw more wildlife -lots of deers- near the B&B than in Yosemite.

Our room was next to the pool detached from the house and was quite good size with drinking water supply, tea, coffee, microwave and a mini fridge. Breakfasts are very filling and plentiful with variety of home made jams, warm bread, fruit, eggs, and more.

We enjoyed our stay here!
