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

We just needed to get away for a weekend and this place was perfect. A bit remote, but not hard to get to... beautiful view, comfy bed and a delicious breakfast made by our hosts, the owners. If we'd stayed longer we could have gone to Yosemite-- it's not far. My only regret is that we didn't choose the Lookout... More

We had the pleasure of saying with Margi and Wolfgang for two days last month and since then have stayed with two more B & Bs and the Penon Blanco is by far superior to the others. Although a little remote, it is well worth the effort and is pretty easy to find. Located close to Yosemite and Coulterville makes... More

Innkeepers were very hospitable at this rustic foothill B&B. Room was comfortable and included a TV with a large selection of movies and a mini-fridge that was convenient for the picnic food we brought along. Complimentary wine was waiting. Sparkling wine and flowers were provided at an extra cost (my boyfriend spoiled me). The innkeepers were very accommodating to our... More

Hi late review I know, but stayed at Penon Blanco Lookout in October 2012. We were the only couple staying there for the two nights we booked, and Margi and Wolfgang made us very welcome. Location is very much in the middle of nowhere and at night its VERY dark especially when you accidentally switch off your headlights whilst driving... More

It was Jan 6, and it has been raining since the night before. It’s cold, rain & wind, an unexciting day ̶ No, sunrise in the heavy clouds, shyly hides behind the orange glow. When the rain stops, flocks of bird are winging, chirping and searching for food. I spotted four different species of birds just within fifteen minutes. A... More

I just have to share our experience staying at the Penon Blanco Lookout last summer (July 2012). This is a lovely B&B with many antiques, lovely breakfasts, but a good distance from Yosemite. This is anything but a short drive to Yosemite. It was certainly not in anything close to a forested area, and the drive to the gate of... More

This was a lovely place in such a beautiful remote location. The room was spacious and well equipped. Margi was an exceptional host who prepared the best breakfasts ever. Although an hours drive into Yosemite the drive is nice.

I got no response. They never acknoledge it or anything. I waited 10 day and I had to cancel through the website that... More
