We arrived late Thursday Night to this gorgeous, angelically lit, gated place on a hill that took our breath away. In awe with every step we unloaded and entered into a flawless, speedy check in for our room. The decor, the smell, the music softly in the background was so inviting. The room was clean and perfect. Every area I... More

My sister, 9 year old daughter, and I spent two nights at the Inn on Knowles Hill this weekend and our experience from arrival to departure was absolutely WONDERFUL. We arrived in the evening and were astonished by the night's view of the inn. The pictures, while amazing, do not adequately capture the inn's beauty, quality, or detail. We were... More

We just stayed for two nights on our way from Las Vegas to San Francisco. We had interconnecting rooms that were spacious, spotless and beautifully furnished with very comfortable beds. We also had a balcony which was the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine watching the sunset. We came in unsure of how we would feel in... More

1/3/2015 - My wife & I celebrated our anniversary at this wonderful Inn. All of the elements coalesce into an eloquent and cohesive whole. The setting, the house, the genuine Tiffany lamps - down to the napkin holders - all with careful planning and execution combined to give the visitor a truly exceptional experience. The proprietors truly take pride in... More

Rooms are exquisite. The view is like I've never seen before. The food is 5 star and the desserts are unbelievable. The hospitality is superb and the love felt from the host and hostess is magical. We will be back with family and friends as soon as the next opportunity arises. We definitely made a few new lifetime friends. Jodie... More

First time I have ever reviewed somewhere and mainly because the hostess Rhonda was so charming. Rhonda sprinkles a little bit of love to all that she does, hence why I am writing this deserved review. Their place is quant, intimate, beds are comfy and I may just move in so I can be fed that superb grapefruit dish at... More

My wife and I stayed for three nights at this amazing home, It is not like staying at a hotel as Rhonda makes you feel like you are a friend who has come to stay. The rooms are beautiful and the breakfasts were legendary, better than any we have tasted in five star hotels. Rhonda even invited us into her... More

Last year we stayed here, and had a great experience. We booked it last minute, as a place to start our Yosemite experience, and regretted not being able to stay longer. Very professional and personal service, and a breakfast worth praising!

The breakfast here is outstanding! Rhonda (the innkeeper) serves a poached pear filled with vanilla cream, white chocolate rasperry muffins and many more delicious entrees. My kids love to play with the two collies that live there outside all day long. They are so friendly and well mannered, they won't jump up on you or even lick your hand! The... More

If only every bed & breakfast could be as fantastic as The Inn on Knowles Hill. The room was delightful and very comfortable. The breakfast prepared by Rhonda each morning was a gourmet delight. My daughter and I stayed as part of a group that took over the Inn. It was such fun and was like staying with friends at... More
