“A little piece of heaven”
Reviewed 29 May 2012 via mobile

We stayed here for 2 nights as a base to explore Yosemite. Our hosts Lois and John could not have been more helpful . You get a service that is exceptional from packing leftovers from a very substantial breakfast to enjoy at your leisure to providing extra jackets. The hot tub was devine and thoroughly appreciated after a day of hiking . John had the fire going for us in our separate guest accomm. Located in a very pretty setting with wildlife about. The humming birds were a delight and eat from a handheld feeder. Even though it is a bit of a drive to Yosemite it is no punishment as the scenery is great. We would have no hesitation in recommending this very comfortable accommodation to families and couples. I had left feedback just after leaving our accommodation but I obviously did not load at the time hence the delay in this post.

I spent the weekend at the Restful Nest while my son camped out and participated in the Civil War re-enactment. I was staying at the Restful Nest by myself. Lois and Jon could not have been more gracious. They treated me like family! I felt extemely welcomed and enjoyed their company as well. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful and the rooms are nice and very comfortable. The food was heaven!!! When I picked up my son early Sunday morning from the re-enactment event, they let me bring him back to the B&B, shower, and join us for breakfast. I definitely recommend the Restful Nest and look forward to going back again.

We stayed here for just one night on our way through Yosemite. Thoroughly recommend it - especially if you have an appetite for charming company, great home-cooked food and humming-birds that drink from your hand! Lois and Jean are wonderful hosts, and welcomed us like family. Our room was comfortable, clean and with wonderful views. The breakfast has now become the new standard for breakfasts - absolutely incredible.

I love this place. We printed off the directions provided on the website and found the B&B easily. The ride was very scenic and the huge granite boulders dotting the landscape were a nice preview to Yosemite. We stayed here prior to our visit to the Mariposa Grove and a subsequent visit to Yosemite Valley. This worked very well. We enjoyed Lois and Jon Pierre and truly felt like family. Even though it was January and chilly outside, we had a wonderful room that had a toasty wood stove that kept us nice and warm. Add the comfortable recliners and chilled beverages (which we brought with us) and we were totally at home. The husband lounged a while in the hot tub and declared that it was clean and 102 degrees. He used the robe thoughtfully provided in the room. Breakfast was indeed over the top and we were really to tackle a nice hike in the park Would definitely go back!!

Room Tip: If it is chilly, pay the extra money and get the guest house with the wood stove. Nothing beats the...

My family stayed here this summer and it was just a perfect place to stay if you plan on heading into Yosemite and the surrounding areas. Lois and Jon were so accomodating to us. We stayed a couple of day and they knew we were travelling in to the national park. So, they provided us with snacks, water, binoculars, and suggestions as to what to see. The breakfast is amazing. Lois is a fantastic cook so get ready to be surprised and delighted. We spent a little time talking with Lois and Jon before leaving and departing was like leaving family. This is definitely a home away from home.

I recently stayed here with family we rent out all the rooms. Our stay was perfect and even my family from France was impressed with the amazing home cooked breakfast spread Lois and Jon prepare. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We even saw wild life on property fox and deer. My kids love this place.

Or ... said another way ... go here if you love to eat! Lois and Jon put on a breakfast spread that is to die for! And Lois (jokingly) won't let anyone leave the table until everything is gone! Rooms are very clean, home is warm and inviting. Take off one star for not being a historic home, but add one back because they have a beautiful pool and hot tub, and two bonus stars because they take whatever delicious fruit, coffee cake, anything that will pack well, put it in a cooler they provide for the day, and send it with you for lunch/snack later!! (Only B&B I've ever been in that did that!) Other than a few idiosyncrasies that it took a little getting used to (but who of us don't?), we give this B&B a "two thumbs up"!
