The rooms are spacious and clean. they helped us plan our trip in the area and gave us great recommendations. we were there for 2 nights and we can't wait to come back!

One night stay after visiting Yosemite National Park. Booked through a web travel site. Had a really helpful email from owners confirming reservation and giving important advice about the type of car rental we would need because of National Park snow chain regulations. Unforgettable sunrise in the morning across the valley to Sierra Nevada mountains before a great breakfast.

We've visited this place to spend Thanksgiving holidays. It was just great, it is not like a boring hotel, it is a place where you feel like home. And it is just 20 mins drive from Yosemite park. Needless to say that accommodation was perfect and breakfast was delicious. Thank you Bruce and Lori, you are are wonderful people! P.S. Please say hi to Bubu.

We had a great 2 night stay while visiting Yosemite NP. Although it's a bit of a drive from the park we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Sierra View to fellow travelers. We were headed south following our visit to Yosemite and this location was perfect for an early start to Fresno.

Bruce and Lori are wonderful, and the view from the rooms are incredible. We are frequent travelers and this B&B ranks in the top tier for us. Lori is amazing at providing all you need to know about the park and helping set up the perfect day in Yosemite. And after a long day it is the perfect place to come back and relax. We will come back and stay here when we visit the area.

Having read the trip advisor comments, we instantly booked this B&B and it exceeded all our expectations. Bruce & Lori are the most excellent hosts, going the extra mile to give you the best experience of Yosemite no matter how short or long your stay. We got an excellent dinner recommendation plus the best 1 day tour of the park. Breakfast is incredible and the rooms are lovely. The view is the best you'll get and only 20 mins to the south entrance to the park, it's an easy location. Don't think about booking anywhere else, it won't compare. And make sure you cuddle Boo-Boo, she keeps the bears at bay..;)
We will come back and can't wait to stay at this beautiful home again.

You will wonder if your GPS or map has a fault when you start heading up the steep drive and keep on heading up the steep drive. Still once you are there the view is magnificent over Oakhurst.
There is a choice of 3 rooms, we had the smallest middle room, which is exactly that, small! One chair to sit on. Plenty of room outside though. The other two rooms were bigger but had pets staying in them over time. As one of us has an allergy, we couldn't have either room.

The owners are lovely people, and happy to chat. Breakfast was good, although nothing special. You are quite some distance from Yosemite. they say 20 minutes from he park gates. More like 40 at least, then another hour to Yosemite.

Sleep wasn't the best as a smoke alarm starting beeping at around 3.00am due to a flat battery. I wasn't impressed with the owners "oh sorry about that" then taking the full amount due.

In summary, great view, nice people, reasonable location but over priced.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the two larger rooms. One has a seperate bedroom and the other a King bed. The smal...

brucechip, Owner at Yosemite Sierra View Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review, October 13, 2012
We are surprised and disappointed in this review. The guests were offered a choice of rooms at the time of their reservation. They chose the least expensive of our three rooms (during peak tourism season).
The guests never expressed dissatisfaction with our response to fixing the smoke alarm. The guests did not notify us of the smoke alarm going off. We live above our guest rooms and could have fixed it immediately. We recognized the mechanical problem and fixed the smoke alarm before the guests' full, hot breakfast was served to them that morning.

The room they chose has two chairs for sitting. They are on both sides of the bathroom door. I don't know how they were missed.

Knowing that this guest has "dog issues" we had our dog in our room during breakfast. One other guest were asked to keep there dog in their (pet friendly) room and to avoid any dog contact with this neighboring guest.

***A note about the distance to Yosemite National Park. It is 14 miles from our Bed and Breakfast. It consistently takes 20 minutes to the entrance of the Park. Yosemite National Park is 1200 square miles, with 5 park entrances. Most guests drive in and out of Yosemite via Oakhurst (our town) and the Southern route. Yosemite National Park has reduced the numbers of bed spaces and camp spaces over the last 20 years, leaving Oakhurst as the best viable lodging option closest to the park.

Our goal has always been to give our guests as positive of an experience of our region, with our services and with our home. We are truly saddened that these guests never shared their dissatisfaction or feelings with us.
