What more can we say but thank you to our Hosts Kathy and Barney. The most luxurious bed we've had so far and the accommodation is 5 star on a beautiful Ranch. The breakfast was beautiful with so much variety and every dietary need catered for. Good stop overs on the way to and from Yosemite. Cannot recommend highly enough... More

This November we had the opportunity to stay at Rancho Bernardo. Very nice environment and lovely room at the barn. Everything available and in the morning nice breakfast created by Kathleen. Very nice and friendly people, Kathleen and Barney. During the day we visited Yosemite and good location to travel back to San Francisco. Would certainly recommend a stay at... More

We stopped here for one night after 2 nights camping in Yosemite. I was looking for a comfortable, unique place for our family of 5 to stay. Most hotels in the area are either too expensive or of lackluster quality. I was so glad to have found Rancho Bernardo on trip advisor. It was perfect! The guest house sleeps 6--with... More

Stayed one night in the 2 bed apartment over the garage complete with pool table. Such lovely comfortable accommodation in a peaceful location well off the beaten track. Our hosts were delightful, very welcoming and full of amusing tales. Breakfast was a real treat - don't expect it to be a quick affair, you'll have to tear yourselves away! Remember... More

We stayed in the Barn Suite of the Rancho Bernardo B&B for 2 nights on our way to Yosemite, and it was great. An actual suite in the barn with horses in the stalls and just a short walk up to the main house where a big breakfast was served. Owners Kathy & Barney were so friendly and we felt... More

We had a lovely stay here at Rancho Bernardo. Ranch is great, but what really makes this place special is Kathy and Barney : ) ! They are the sweetest people you'll ever meet. My husband, 15 year-old son, and I stayed in the guest house above the garage. Complete with pool table! We have a soft spot in our... More

We had the pleasure of staying at Rancho Bernardo earlier in October. Kathy & Barney were amazing hosts. Our room was in the barn opposite the horses which meant the horses got fed well and probably put on a lot of a weight whilst we were there! A very unique place to stay. Our room was immaculate with a western... More

My husband and I booked the Guest House at Rancho Bernardo after reading about it on Trip Advisor. I emailed my questions to the owner and eventually talked to her on the phone. I could tell by our conversation that we would enjoy our stay. We had good directions from Kathleen and were welcomed when we drove in the drive... More
