Nothing that I could write here could ever do justice to the experience we had at the Restful Nest; we cried when we left! We were here for 3 nights, and will remember our stay as one of the real highlights of our trip. Lois & Jon could not have been better hosts, they are such genuine people with a... More

Restful Nest in Mariposa CA is a wonderful play to stay. Lois and Jon are excellent hosts. They make you feel comfortable and like at home. The breakfast is delicious accompanied of nice cultural and fun conversations. Ahh, what a nice place for vacation: clean, beautiful, safe, fun etc. They even pack snack for our family day trip.

We had a wonderful time staying at Lois & Jon-Pierre's - it actually felt like coming home! We had really nice conversations and they gave us lots of tips where to go for dinner and what to do while staying in Mariposa. Our room was nice and clean and the bed was very comfy. The highlight of our short stay... More

Our first B&B experience. Lois and Jean are wonderful personable hosts. Jean brewed some homegrown thyme and lemon grass tea for my wife and we chatted at their kitchen table after checking in. Reviews of Lois's breakfast are spot on: one of the heartiest breakfasts ever. Variety of fresh melons, strawberries, blueberries, artichoke heart quiche, raspberry cakes, bacon, potato patties,...

Words can't really express how lovely Lois and Jon are, you must stay here and experience their hospitality yourself. Their B&B is so lovingly decorated and cared for and as a guest you are treated like royalty. We had an early start to our first day so Lois got up early to prepare us breakfast to go and the 2nd...

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
