“Treasure from start to finish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Off the beaten path and vegan friendly. A beautiful, warm home surrounded by forest and wildlife. Inside you will find Mike and Lizzie. Both extremely sincere in their invitation and desire for you to feel as if this is your home. We brought our own food, but little did we expect to find the entire pantry (vegan options included) open to us. The kitchen is better outfitted than most homes and had we known (and had the time) we would've been whipping up all kinds of goodies!. We had no cell phone reception and were invited to make national calls (we arrived the day before Hurricane Sandy hit the mid-Atlantic and this was the only way to reach our family back home). Llizzie was even so great as to be the liaison between our family and the B&B, willing to pass on messages should anyone call for us. LOVE Mike and Lizzie and LOVE Highland House. Our next trip to Yosemite will definitely include a couple of days just to enjoy Highland.

Room Tip: All three rooms are cozy, but if you want oooooo, stay in the Forest Room.

No sense reiterating all the great reviews, other than to say they are all true. For our two night stay in mid Oct, Nora, took good care of us. The only reason we couldn't eat everything at breakfast was because Nora made sure there was plenty of everything for everybody. Nothing went to waste though as it only took a couple minutes for the deer to come in and finish what we couldn't. Try to get there before dark the first night because it's a little hard to find that first time. They really take care of you here and we'll definitely be back.

From the moment we arrived, highland house felt special. It's extremely rural, we saw deer on the lawn in the mornings... The fawn must only have been about 5 weeks old. Hummingbirds abound, hovering at the bird table. Wild turkeys stroll around the garden. Our room was fantastic, lots of space, very clean, charming. Bed incredibly comfortable, we slept so well. Breakfast is a sociable affair, at a large dining table and is different every day. Nora's breakfasts are a veritable feast !! Loved every moment and we hope that we visit again someday. Thank you for looking after us so well :-)

It was out of the way but worth the drive! Very comfortable and cozy. The breakfast was great all three mornings. Nora, Lizzy and Michael all made us feel very much at home. There were sodas and snacks waiting for us. We loved the cookies and trail mix! We met interesting people at breakfast each morning and exchanged traveling experiences. The wildlife was fun to watch.
I appreciated being able to use the washer and dryer, since we were on a 2 week vacation. Overall a very nice experience!

If you don't like peace and quiet, wonders of nature, absolutely fabulous breakfast meals with fruits, breads....two or three types.....eggs, meats....two types....yogurt, juice, coffee, along with extra nuts and trail mixes, sodas, computer service, laundry and a quiet and clean room.....then this place is not for you. When we drove up, an envelope with our key inside was clipped to the mailbox at the front door. We just let ourselves in, did what was asked of us.....made ourselves at home.....and enjoyed refreshments on the patio. We watched the wild turkeys strut by while the hummingbirds buzzed in constant rhythm and dance overhead. The squirrels fussed at us while the deer looked on. The Highland House B&B is one hour door-to-door from Mariposa Grove, home of the giant sequoia trees, and the same in the opposite direction for Yosemite. We all gathered in the kitchen while Lizzie or Nora prepared our breakfast and Michael, the owner, shared some interesting sites to visit as we left for the next leg of our trip. It just doesn't get much better than this!

We stayed at the Highland House B&B during our trip to Yosemite NP. It's such a lovely quiet place in the middle of the forest. When we arrived, the hummingbirds were flying there to welcome us, and in the morning there were 4 deer grazing in the yard. After a delicious fresh made breakfast we were ready to hike all day (after the helpful information from Michael). You immediately felt like at home there.
We also could do our laundry (without extra charges!) and after the drying Lizzie folded our clothes and put them on the bed. This was the best stay of our whole West-USA-trip!
Thank you!

Two friends and I stayed here in August 2012 and we had a lovely visit. The owner greeted us warmly and made us feel at home. Amenities include a stocked kitchen, wifi, comfortable sitting rooms, peaceful grounds and a hearty breakfast. My friends and I fit comfortably in the Forest Retreat room (I was in the rollaway bed which was adequate for one night's sleep) and we all enjoyed the large bathroom. We only wished we could have stayed longer but we were on our way to Yosemite (note that the B&B is about an hour from the park).
