It would be redundant to say much about the breakfasts -- as has been said, Lois provides a very tasty, well varied menu. She retired to her bedroom one night @ 8:15 because "I have to get up so early." Getting there isn't quite so restful -- pretty remote from Mariposa & though the last couple miles of road are...

I can only echo the fantastic comments already posted. A lovely B&B run by lovely people. This morning I woke to the smell of a wonderful breakfast cooking in the main house above - heaven! Yesterday we left early for a tour of Yosemite, and we set off with a fabulous cooked breakfast 'to go'. Thanks so much Lois and... More

We have frequented a number of B&B's in the US and all have been of an excellent standard , but the Restful Nest sits atop of the pile. From the moment of our arrival and the offer of a refreshing cup of tea after a long day's drive from Lake Tahoe to our departure 4 nights later Lois and Jean... More

We had the great pleasure of staying at the Restful Nest for 3 nights around 3 weeks ago while touring California and in particular Yosemite. It is not hard to see why the Restful Nest garners such great reviews. The breakfast has to be seen and eaten to be believed. It was all beautifully prepared and delivered by the hosts... More

Sadly due to an oversight of mine we only stayed 3 nights here instead of the planned 4. The welcome was warm, and this was the only place in the US on this trip (out of 12) that did not want our credit card until just before we left. Lois and Jean-Paul are the perfect hosts, I would defy you... More

We stayed at the Restful Nest for four nights, as a base for visiting Yosemite. Lois and Jean-Pierre clearly love people and running a B&B, which is not always the case. No clinking of cutlery and awkward silences here but plenty of great conversation and even better food. The breakfasts sustained us through a whole day's hiking, given that Lois... More

Arrived mid afternoon on very hot day, but our room was already a perfect temperature, and was spacious with plenty of sitting space as well as a big comfortable bed. Lois and John made us very welcome. Breakfast next morning was a real experience, a large array of fresh fruit, and a feast of home-made everything (muffins, french toast, omelette,... More

Great food, adorable hosts in a very quiet area. We stayed with Lois and JP while visiting Yosemite Park and everything was perfect! We live in San Francisco and booked this trip last minute but Jon-Pierrewas very helpful with directions ans restaurant recommendations. The place is perfectly clean and like other comments mention it, breakfast is fabulous! They really made... More
