We enjoyed our four night stay at the Cub Inn. The location is great. Close enough to Yosemite for daily visits, yet far enough to be away from the traffic and crowds. The place is a wonderful log cabin, the breakfasts were great, and Joe Riley a superb innkeeper with great conversation and perfect recommendations. We enjoyed our international conversations...

My husband and I stayed here 2 nights in June so we could visit Yosemite. We are normally so-so on bed and breakfasts simply because we like the anonymity of hotels, but we decided to try it out. We were both surprised at how much we enjoyed it. We stayed in Lauren's room upstairs and it was very quiet, bathroom... More

We could see that this was a nice place to stay when setting out for Yosemite. But it wasn't for us. Lovely house and setting. But .... Owners have a Staffordshire bull terrier we didn't know about and my wife doesn't like dogs. Not amused to find dog in our bedroom. The 4 cats were ok as we both like... More

Normally we return from vacations and after some days we write our opinions about places we visited, and normally after some months we already forgot many of the details… But this time near one year after visiting the CUB INN we still enjoy it and recall any of the characteristics of the establishment.

We stayed for 3 nights with Joe and Charlene Jan. 5-8. They were perfect hosts with much helpful information about the park. They even loaned us snow chains which we luckily did not need as the weather was just perfect with plenty of sun and pleasant temperatures. We enjoyed great conversations around the fireplace each night. Joe prepared a hearty... More

Travelling to Yosemite with my friend we arrived at this beautifully constructed cabin in the heart of the forest (although a handy close distance from restaurants, shops, gas stations etc!) to meet Joe our friendly, kind and very interesting host. From the minute we arrived we were part of the family. Joe made great recommendations for hikes in Yosemite and... More

This is LONG overdue but better late than never? My fiancé and I decided to book The Cub Inn for a work trip in San Francisco. We decided to fly out to CA early before meetings started to Hike Yosemite.. We were coming from Syracuse, NY and got in quite late (9:30 - 10:00pm). Joe stayed up and gave us... More

We stayed with Joe's B&B for three nights. The "my home is your home" policy creates an inviting and familiar atmosphere. Breakfast at the huge dining table (up to 12 guests) is really an event, and we enjoyed the international guests from all over the world. Due to this approach the timing is a little bit strict: 8:00 is breakfast... More

Stayed here for two nights in January 2014 as a stopover whilst visiting Yosemite. Joe and Char were both so welcoming and we loved our time with them. Such a gorgeous and cosy B&B, very comfortable stay. So lovely waking up to the local wildlife just outside our window too! Joe makes the BEST blueberry pancakes and waffles, still yet... More
