“One of the Best”

A Haven of Rest B & B is exactly that, providing a great place to stay for visiting Yosemite NP.The hot spa is a perfect finale after a day's hiking in the park and Mike and Jody go that extra mile to ensure your stay is both comfortable and memorable.

We spent 3 nights in that B&B and loved it. The rooms, as observed already by many others, are spacious, clean and include everything you need.
The breakfast was unsurpassed by any other that we enjoyed during our 4 weeks in the USA. They served it on the porch. If you get lucky a deer or a doe will pay a visit while you are sitting there. We got lucky.
Jody and Mike go out of their way to help you, but in a very unobtrusive manner. For example, they picked us up on Highway 41 as we didn't find our way to their house. And because we were a bit worried about the Hanta Virus they called the park rangers for an update on the situation.
Oakhurst is 20 miles from Yosemite's border. But it's only a 60 minutes ride to the heart of the park - even if you're in for a long hike you will get there early enough.
Should we ever visit Yosemite Park again we will most certainly put up at Haven of Rest.
Thanks for a marvellous stay from Gabi und Lothar (Mainz, Germany).

Hi Gabi & Lothar,
Thank you so very much for your informative review. It was our pleasure to pick you up in town, it is hard when you are traveling in a place you have never seen before. How exciting to be able to meet your friends (also from Germany) and be able to tour San Francisco together!! We're glad your trip home turned out well and you missed the strike!
Our Best, Mike & Jody

My wife and I found Mike and Jody exceeded our expectations. We found them online, and the prior reviews were right on. We experienced very personal attention, wonderful food and great advice on visiting Yosemite. The room and furnishings were better than any 4 star hotel we have visited. We kept mentioning where we were staying while in the park, and everyone came up to my wife and wanted to know where we found such a wonderful place to stay. When we return to Yosemite, we will look for Mike and Jody first!

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.
