Virgina has a cozy house just in front of the river and our stay was so relaxing (we needed it after a long drive to her place). The host gives you a lot of advice about your trip and our bedroom was just lovely. We would like to go back there in order to enjoy a rafting experience because we... More

We spent our wedding anniversary here and we simply loved the place. The rooms are so well decorated and equipped with contrasting furniture. Virginia is a great host and such a wealth of knowledge of where to go and what to see. The breakfast won't disappoint you. There is a large shared fridge where you can store drinks and get... More

My husband and I came to Kernville to windsurf on Lake Isabella. I had one experience here years ago, when I stayed at a dingy local motel and swore I'd never come back. I am pleased to say that we have now found a place I look forward to visiting again. Our hostess is friendly and full of good advice... More

this gem of a bed and breakfast is one of the loveliest i have ever stayed in. there is nothing pretentious about it, but most definitely the best part of our stay was miss virginia, the innkeeper. she is the most gracious hostess i have ever encountered in a and b, and her guests are made to feel like family....

For our one year wedding anniversary we decided to try a B&B. We travel to Kern fairly often and this place always caught our eye. The rooms were very welcoming and peaceful with some great views. Virginia is the*MOST* amazing cook, meeting other guests was great, and her pets make you feel welcome. Exactly like a home away from home... More

This is probably the - or one of the - most upscale lodgings in Kernville. Rooms are large and beautifully decorated without all the fussy geegaws that you sometimes find in B&B's. "Big Blue" room is just lovely, with its pale yellow and blue color scheme and fabric accents. The room and bathroom were spotless and with terrific linens and... More

Wow, what fantastic B&B. Clean, comfortable, and convenient. Delicious breakfasts, a wonderful host, and friendly pets to make the stay that much more like home. I spent two nights - one at the beginning and one at the end of my trip - and I have to say it was the best B&B experience I've ever had. Highly recommended.

My wife and I stayed here for one night in July and it did just what we needed - provide a nice, quiet, clean place to sleep at a good price. We rang and booked on the day and Virginia was very accommodating of our late arrival. She provided useful information on nearby restaurants, opening hours etc which meant we... More

We stayed at the inn for two nights in June for our river rafting trip. The inn is cute with roses in front, clean and spacious. The breakfast was great. The Mountain & River Adventures store is just down the street and the river is just across the road. Virginia had coffee make early in morning, so you can enjoy... More

If you are looking for rest and relaxation, the Kern River Inn is the place to go. I stayed there for a couple of days with my fiance during Spring vacation. We had nothing planned, which was wonderful. We were in no rush to do anything. We woke up to a delicious breakfast each morning and good conversation with Virginia.... More
