“Delicious breakfast and fantastic host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2007

If you are looking for rest and relaxation, the Kern River Inn is the place to go. I stayed there for a couple of days with my fiance during Spring vacation. We had nothing planned, which was wonderful. We were in no rush to do anything. We woke up to a delicious breakfast each morning and good conversation with Virginia. She provided us with things to do locally and recommended a restaurant with a great view. We had a lovely room upstairs- the Blue Room. The bed was very comfortable and we had our own bathroom. There's no DVD player, but video movies were available. Which we were fine with. The inn is very quiet and is located right across from the Kern River. At night you can hear the rushing river if you leave your windows open. It was very soothing. I recommend this place if you are in need of getting away for a day or two.

This picturesque inn caught our attention from the moment we laid eyes on it. The inside was just as nice as the outside. Warm, clean, quiet. Rooms were private, with nice individual bathrooms. Unlike most inns that are converted from private homes, this inn was designed from the ground up to be perfect for travelers.

The breakfast was generous, and quite tasty! Virginia, our innkeeper, was an exceptionally thoughtful host during our stay. Full of local knowledge, enjoying life, and happy to share her home with we guests!

Located right across from the river, and yet just on the edge of this hidden hamlet, we could walk everywhere we needed to. The entire town seemed designed to make our stay quite enjoyable. Would have stayed a week had we the time.

I've been to a number of B&Bs and this one deserves a 5-star rating.
