“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

We came here to celebrate our anniversary, and my husband surprised me, knowing I'd love it since we'd been here once before and had such a wonderful experience. Haven of Rest is truly a peaceful retreat from the busy-ness of city life. I love B&Bs and this one ranks as one of our family's favorites because of the privacy, cleanliness, and coziness of the property. When I first stepped into the guest room, I felt at home. We have a little baby, and at a hotel or other B&B, we would worry that his crying would disturb neighbors. Not so here.

Mike and Jody are very kind and courteous. Jody's cooking is amazing, her potatoes are especially delicious, and this time we were given a dessert waffle (topped with fresh blueberries) that was so good, it's now my all-time #1 favorite! Ole's Waffles in Alameda are now at the #2 spot :)

All rooms were extremely clean, the jacuzzi was wonderful, everything was great.

After a full day of exploring the natural marvel that is Yosemite, we couldn't have asked for a better spot to rest and rejuvenate. Jody & Mike are excellent hosts and make you feel as if you're visiting old friends and/or family. We wanted for nothing. The accommodations were more than spacious for our our family of four. Our girls (11 & 8) slept comfortably on the pull-out sofa and my husband & I slumbered on the king-sized bed with the softest sheets EVER.

After a full day of hiking and exploring, we were grateful for the oversized hot tub which is really like a mini pool. It was a lovely luxury.

Breakfast the next day in Mike & Jody's whimsical garden was yummy. A classic breakfast of eggs, bacon, biscuits, home fries and fresh fruit was appreciated and devoured by everyone in the family.

We would all highly recommend this special spot for anyone visiting the area.

I stayed at Haven of Rest with my sister and 24 year old niece for one night. We had searched for a place to accommodate the three of us just outside the park and the options were very scarce. We couldn't have been happier. The 3 bedroom suite (large master bedroom, living room with sofa bed and bathroom) are spacious, comfortable and clean. There is even a flat screen t.v. so we were able to watch the Olympics. The breakfast served on the patio was excellent. Mike and Jody are friendly but not intrusive. The location is only 20 minutes from the southern entrance to the park where the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias in located. After visiting the Grove, we stopped at Glacier Point and then entered the Yosemite valley where we stayed the following night.

We stayed at this B and B the last couple of nights - recommend highly.

The pros:
1. Very clean, nicely furnished (plush, doesn't feel at all like vacation furniture)
2. Very plush towels, very comfortable bed.
3. Spacious and sound - proof. You really have a suite, with a living room and bedroom. There is also a microwave and small fridge. Plus, they make sure to tell you the walls are thick, not to worry about sound, which is great, especially for us as we have a 10-month old baby.
4. Perfect baby-place. If you happen to have a baby who is crawling around, this is a perfect place as between the carpeting and the plush furniture, it is almost impossible to get hurt.

A couple of small cons -

1. Food is just ok. It is not terrible, but don't expect gourmet either. It is somewhere in the middle. The coffee wasn't great - and I look a good coffee. I didn't comment to owners, so it is possible they had something better had I asked.

2. The A/C either blows hard or is off. You can maneuver the vents and this wasn't a huge deal, but it seemed to be either blowing hard or off completely, could be we didn't invest enough time looking at it.

Overall recommend this for folks looking for a very comfortable place, with great bedding/bed/towels/furniture, and friendly although not overly outgoing hosts.

Thank you for your lovely comments about our Bed & Breakfast, it was very nice having your family as our guests!
We are so very sorry for the areas that did not quite please you. If only we had known there was the slightest problem or discomfort for you (No matter how small) we would have been more than happy to make whatever changes were needed to take care of those concerns.
It is always most important to us and our main intention to make your stay with us as pleasant as possible.

We spent 2 nights in this BB. It is a bit far away from the valley, but the rooms are big and clean, the breakfast is huge (great for a hicking day) and Jody and Mike are very kind. Our 7 years old daugher and ourselvers enjoyed the complimentary hot tub. It was great after hard hicking in the valley. A great plus: When we arrived the house our national flag (Spain) was waving from the mast. Amazing!

Hi Luis,
We are happy you found A Haven of Rest B&B for your families stay near Yosemite. Mia kept looking out the window for Lucia after you left. She really missed being able to play with her each morning after breakfast. .

I stayed with my wife and two kids (3 and 5) at Haven of Rest. I was expecting a lot because of the reviews and it was even better than I expected. The room is great and spacious. Breakfast is delicious. We (specially the kids) enjoyed the private jacuzzi after long days hiking at Yosemite. But, most of all, we were impressed with Mike and Jody. They are great host. Extremelly helpfull and at the same time discrete. Great experience

We really enjoyed our stay at Haven of Rest in Oakhurst. Jody and Mike the owners gave us lots of privacy as if it was our own piece of heaven. We enjoyed the great breakfasts and the large hot tub next to our room. It's about an hour and a half beautiful drive to the valley floor of Yosemite. Definitely a very nice place to stay.
