“Wonderful bed linen!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

We stayed at the Kern River Inn over the Labor Day weekend and it was great to sit on the veranda watching the busy world go by, Virginia was very helpful and informative. We stayed in the Blue Room which was spacious with a great shower. The bed linen and towels were of the highest quality AND IRONED! something that we didn't find in top hotels we stayed in US. Breakfast buffet style was excellent as it enabled you to take as much or as little as you wanted, so no waste.

What a refreshing change. The only night of our holiday not spent in a hotel/lodge. It was charming to be greeted by the owner into her home. The building was right on the river with a great view from the porch. It was very easy to find, and parking just outside.

The owner does have a cat and dogs so be prepared for them to greet you too. The cat spent most of the day and evening in our room and sleeping on the bed which was lovely. The room was large and very well decorated. Bathroom was large with the softest towels ever! Everything in the room was spotless, and every extra was there. Breakfast was excellent.

If we could think one improvement, suggest flat screen TVs and DVD players as she still had VCR's!!!! Although we were very grateful for the video collection.

The owner had local restaurant menus in the living room, and made an excellent recommendation for dinner, although her directions weren't great!

Overall a lovely place we would like to revisit.

The B&B is a quaint two story timber house situated in the small village of Kernville, in a quiet street overlooking the Kern River. It has 5 ensuite bedrooms to choose from, all of similar quality. The rooms are nicely furnished with high quality bed linen. The ensuites are on the small side but that is not a serious criticism. Our room, costing A$154 per night, including a breakfast of fruit, muffins, quiche etc, had an open fireplace and views across the street to the river. B&B owner, Virginia and her two dogs and cat, make guests feel very welcome. The B&B does not have a restaurant but there are a number of choices in the village within walking distance. We had an enjoyable pasta and a red on the front terrace at "That's Italian".

Just returned from our 8th annual family jaunt to this wonderful B&B. We always receive a warm greeting from Virginia and her pets. The B&B is attractive and welcoming. The rooms are tastefully decorated and cozy. The B&B is conveniently located across the street from Riverside Park and the Kern River. It is nice to hear the sounds of the rushing Kern River through an open window in your room or while sitting on the porch enjoying the scenery. Breakfast is out of this world and the afternnon cookies/brownies are always a treat. See you again next year Virginia, Bella, Poppy and Max.

We stayed for two nights and really enjoyed our time at the Kern River Inn. Virginia was helpful and chatty and recommended a couple of restaurants and a great local bar for us. The area is simply stunning, the river is right outside and mountains all around with walks a short distance away. Would recommend for a relaxing stay.
