This place was not easy to get to! It's certainly remote, miles up a windy road near a tiny town. If you're looking for a remote getaway, you've found it. We were visiting Yosemite, which is about an hour away down the John Muir highway (more windy roads). Quirky decor and the top room has a beautiful view of Lake... More

Very quiet hill top in Sierra foothills with a view of McClure reservoir. Very clean and comfortable rooms. It's a 2 hour drive to Yosemite Valley floor, about the same as from Merced. This is a house with a tiny yard, not a ranch. The breakfast was excellent. The hosts are curt and strict. The hot tub and living room... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Penon Blanco Lookout. The property is even better than described and the view is stunning. Margi and Wolfgang are delightful and their hospitality sincere. Our room was clean, the gourmet breakfasts superb, and the morning bird songs heavenly. We drove daily to Yosemite, a 45 minute drive through scenic country to Big Oak Flat... More

We arrived a little after 5pm. The owner/caretaker greated us with house sleepers that we should wear inside our room. Nice place to stay for B&B. It reminds me of a strict grandma. The breakfast is good and the room is clean with a very nice mountain and river view. I feel like I need to tip toe because of... More

We stayed for three nights in the John Muir suite at this amazing b&b. Margi and Wolfgang were super hosts. They do have a house rule of no shoes, so please bring slippers or they can provide you with them. Stocking feet are fine. Their home overlooks the lake and valley. What a breathtaking view. It is very tastefully decorated... More

My husband and I stayed here only one night and we wish we had stayed more. When we came there, we were dead tired from our road trip and what we wanted to do is just to relax and go straight to bed. That was exactly what we did. The hostess, Margi, had prepared a bottle of wine for us... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in the John Muir Jr. Suite last weekend. The room was beautifully decorated. We started each morning with a beautiful sunrise sipping coffee on the private patio. The breakfasts were glorious! Margi and Wolfgang were gracious hosts and made our stay absolutely delightful. This was our first stay at a Bed... More

Such a wonderful spot to stay...my lady and I were nearing the end of our 2013 road trip and wanted to spend some time in Yosemite. Everything in the park was full and we found Penon Blanco on-line and called. Very glad we did. Our hosts, Margi and Wolfgang, were extremely accommodating, providing excellent service without being intrusive. We noted... More

My wife and I had a lovely time visiting Yosemite Park, and while we did, we stayed at the Penon Blanco Lookout B&B. Our hosts were lovely people, excellent cooks (and brewer, so try their home-brewed beer!) The room was beautifully appointed and the bed was super-comfortable. Breakfast was great, and enough to keep us going well past lunch. Do... More

Margi and Wolfgang are excellent hosts at this amazing B&B. They keep this place up well and have every perfect special touch that you need to feel like royalty. We stayed in the Lookout room that has the most amazing views...book this one if you can! Breakfast: you have to request the eggs benedict...Margi makes the best I have ever... More
