This review comes almost a year late, but the fact that I'm making time to ensure I pass on my experience should tell you a lot about how great it was. Our stay was in 2014 on the 13/14 June, as part of our trip around California, where Yosemite (Mariposa) was one of the short stays. In hindsight, would've liked... More

This is a very cute and homey B&B in Mariposa, about 1 hr drive from Yosemite. I imagine I would've given it five stars if there were only adults on the trip, but we have a baby/toddler (1 y.o.), and we wanted him to see Yosemite, and see lots of different places around the world! If you have a baby/toddler,... More

This is Theresa, the owner and manager of One Light B&B. I was not here during this guest's visit. She was hosted by Anna, my assistant, whom most of our guests find to be a delightful hostess. Pam, I am truly sorry your stay at here was disappointing to you. We are one of the few B&Bs in Mariposa that... More

We stayed in the Serenity room at One Light over the last weekend of February 2015. Although the B&B wasn't due to open for the season just yet, Theresa (the owner) was kind enough to open a few days early to accommodate us. We were in the Yosemite area to get married that weekend, and she did everything possible to... More

The best B&B near Yosemite! Theresa went out of her way to make us feel comfortable. The room was spacious, clean, and cozy. When we saw the room it immediately put us in a good mood because it was just so lovely! Theresa was knowledgeable about Yosemite and the restaurant scene in nearby towns, and helped us with everything we... More

This was one of the best B&B we stayed in during our America vacation. We stayed in the biggest room with a big comfortable bed and a beautiful bathroom! It is a peaceful place to stay amidst greenery with a beatiful swimmingpool! Theresa is a very sweet women who is interested in her guests. Breakfast was good. It was approximately... More

We stayed three nights. We booked four nights, but decided to cut our trip short. The owner allowed us to cancel the one night without penalty. We very much appreciated this gracious gesture. --The best feature of the room is the size! In addition to the queen bed & full dresser, there is ample room for a full sofa, coffee... More

Hello, This is the first response to a review I have made on Trip Advisor. I have never felt the need. And, even though these guests gave One LIght a "very good" rating, they raise issues I would like to address. Most of our guests love the fact that our B&B, and our rooms, feel more like a home than... More

I begun my three week trip to California with my wife and five years old daughter staying three nights in One Light B&B, and was amazing. The place is strategically located between Mariposa Grove and Yosemite Valley. The accommodation is very cozy and clean, and the host, Theresa, does everything to make you feel at home, giving all the advices... More

Staying at One Light B & B in Mariposa was the highlight of our roadtrip holiday across California, Arizona and Nevada. We booked both rooms as we are a family of four with two teenagers and both rooms were beautifully decorated and spacious. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful and a great opportunity to ask Theresa for advice about visiting Yosemite,... More

A friend and I spent three nights at this beautiful B&B. The site worked well for our visit, as we drove there after a day's visit to Sequoia and before spending three full days exploring Yosemite. The rooms were beautifully decorated and comfortable. Don't let the lack of AC be a concern, as the temps go down dramatically at night.... More

We spent three nights at One Light. This family home is comfortable, spacious, relaxing and with everything you need after a day's hike in Yosemite. Th house is set in acres of beautiful, peaceful countryside with a stunning swimming pool tucked into the landscape. Theresa was welcoming and a charming host.
