Last summer during our California vacation (Big Sur, Monterrey Bay, Yosemite, Sequoia and Kings Canyon) After driving several hours through some winding road we finally made it there late at night. My daughter was nauseous after the rough ride and got sick right outside the Inn...she did not make it to the bathroom! But Virginia was so nice and made... More

I stayed here last week while out on a business trip and after an hour and a half drive through some very desolate, but beautiful canyonlands I am so glad I booked this place ahead of time because there really are not a lot of choices out there! Virginia was very friendly and made me feel right at home. I... More

Very clean, very comfortable ! Breakfast was tasty and special. One can see that it was made with love ! Everything was just perfect... More

Stayed a the Big Blue room which was nothing short of luxurious with the most wonderful pulse shower. Virginia was very welcoming and gave us good advice on where to eat that night. breakfast...

We were traveling with our daughter and son-in-law from LA towards Yosemite and wanted to stop off enroute and chose Kernville as a good option. Virginia was welcoming in spite of the late hour and was happy to recommend local restaurants. The rooms were pristine and the bedding was first-class. We had the best night's sleep in the wonderful beds... More

Kern River Inn B&B is located in a very comfortable house in front of the river. The furniture is good-looking and there are plenty of interesting books. We liked the pets (they are not allowed in the rooms though). Breakfast is huge and very good; the guests were friendly and we enjoyed their conversation. The owner is very kind and... More

Our experiences appear to be very different to all the other posts here. We found Virginia extremely unwelcoming and we felt very uncomfortable during our stay there. So much so that I even asked one of the other guests if it was us.....but she said no she is very unwelcoming.... On the positive side it was a lovely house and... More

Sorry that your stay wasn't up to standards. I must have been having a really "off day." Lots of effort goes into having all our guests comfortable with the Inn. My apologies. More

Virginia is the Innkeeper of this beautiful and comfortable Inn. She welcomes you with her hospitality and her skills as a baker and cook are fabulous! Located right at Riverside Park on the Kern River, this lodging accommodation is a very nice place to treat yourself to that relaxing quite get away!

After a very long trip from the madness that is Vegas, we were delighted with the welcome given to use by Virginia. Within minutes of arriving she had booked us a table at the local Italian restaurant. We stayed in the Blue Room which was very comfortable, the breakfast was delicious and she was a lovely lady. Couldn't ask for... More
