“Stunning setting for a relaxing break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

We stayed in room 1 for 3 nights. The room is like a small cabin, not just a room and the private porch adds to the feeling of space and privacy. Judy gave us a warm welcome and excellent advice on Yosemite and Bass Lake, both of which we visited. We also followed her recommendations for eating locally and had great take outs from Big Todd's BBQ Shack which we enjoyed sitting out on the porch watching the setting sun. The hot tub just added to the comfort and relaxation. Judy is on hand if you need anything but leaves you to enjoy your stay and respects your privacy.
Our only suggestion for improvement would be an alternative to the chocolate chip muffins for those with a less sweet tooth but this is just a minor issue and we didn't bother to ask for rolls or something different as there was plenty of fruit, yoghurts and a range of cereals. As we're travelling around California and staying in a range of small inns, hotels and B&Bs, the extra space, tranquility and beauty at Vulture's View was really appreciated.

Room Tip: Room 1 is spacious but cosy with stunning views across the valley. Great porch to watch the sunset a...

during our recent stay at Vultures View! We can't say that about every b&b we have ever been to...in fact, we debated about staying at the nearby Chukchansi Resort just to be on the "safe side" however, we are so glad that we ventured a little farther to Vulture's View instead!
We stayed in Room 1, which in my opinion, was well worth the extra money! book it! Judy was the perfect hostess, very hospitable, without being overbearing. She showed us to our clean and spacious room, to which we immediately made ourselves at home, by opening every window to enjoy the fresh air and beautiful view.
We also enjoyed a little stroll around the property and a relaxing soak in the hot tub watching the sunset. The continental style breakfast available in our room was just our style!! As we, leisurely made our own coffee and appreciated it, while enjoying the views on the privacy of our deck. Our room's fridge was well stocked with fresh fruit, yogurt, orange juice, milk, special birthday dessert, and also offered, pantry items like, granola, cereal, and big fat chocolate chip muffins! what's not to love about that?
In short, it was:
1. private!
2. and peaceful!
3. with pleasing mountain views!
We are planning to come for another visit soon....
thank you Judy!

I write this review sitting on the terrace of Room 2 listening to the crickets and looking at the stars. This is a wonderful place!
We were greeted by Judy and her husband, Phil,both very friendly hosts. Judy especially was fantastic, gave us loads of tips about visiting Yosemite....get there early and beat the crowds...its a different experience when you have the place to yourselves!
The room is great, large, with a very soft bed, a fridge,microwave and coffee maker. obviously a bathroom too! Oh and Wifi too otherwise I couldn't write this!
The terrace is wonderful, with views across the valley towards the small town of Oakdale where you can buy whatever you you need for your trip to Yosemite....look out for the giant sandwiches from Vons Supermarket....8 dollars and its fine for two for a whole day! Brilliant.
You'll see wild deer in the garden and squirrels and woodpeckers as well.
Some on other reviews have complained about the breakfast and lack of room being serviced.
Well, who cares?
The breakfast was fine, usual stuff like cereals and muffins and there was also some fresh fruit and a delicious chocolate cake too. We were staying three nights and for us it was no problem not having the room made up.....its not the Ritz afterall...if you want all the 5* luxuries stay somewhere else.....this place is all about relaxation and peacefulness and we loved everything about the concept that Judy and Phil have here as their B and B. Its gets our vote and we can recommend Vulture's View without hesitation!

Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 2 have a view of the valley .....room 3 doesn't...but then its the cheapest!

Clean, secluded, wonderful view, decorated with love and care. Every day after hiking in Yosemite we looked forward to coming back to the room and the spa.

Stayed here July 2011 in room two Good sized room & nicely furnished Breakfast was a little sparse with cereals , fruit and muffins or croissants left in your room to help yourself to However sitting on the porch looking over the valley with the Vultures gliding overhead and the wood pecker across the road drilling into the telegraph pole and the deer wondering around the garden all add up to make this the ideal place to commute from into Yosemite However be aware that it is a good hours drive into the park from here and you need to leave at 7am to ensure a parking spot Judy the owner was helpful and always on hand to restock your breakfast needs or for advise where to go Oakhurst itself has few restaurants i suggest going to Bass Lake and eating at Duceys

I went with my wife to this b & b joint. First of all, Judy was amazingly helpful. She reached out to us as soon as we booked the place asking for our preferences on food. We reached there a little late but everything was laid out for us. The room was beautiful with an attached bathroom and an amazing view. I would recommend that you make sure that you reach the place at least by 4-5 pm and enjoy the sunset (we reached a little after sunset).
The next day Judy was amazing helpful with recommending us on what to do in yosemite. I have been recommending this to all my friends.

Room Tip: Try to choose either room1 or room 2

Ok - this is not a stuffy, four-postered bed type of B & B by any means. If that is what you're looking for, you'll going to be very disappointed. The rooms are decorated in a bohemian flea market type of way. Having said that, the room was extremely clean with every possible amenity. Our refrigerator was stocked with juice, fruit, water, croissants, cookies, milk, and granola when we arrived. There was plenty for breakfast for the 2 of us for 3 mornings. There is a coffee maker, coffee, cream, microwave, coffee cups, bowls, silverware and wine glasses. Free wi-fi. Judy hasn't forgotten any detail. Just remember, everything doesn't match and it definitely isn't fine china.

Judy gave great recommendations for hikes in Yosemite as well as restaurants in town. We spent a whole day hiking and ordered the picnic lunch - Superb!! People were commenting left and right on the beautiful picnic we had. Picnic basket with a blanket and tablecloth, fixings for sandwiches, loaf of bread, condiments, sparkling juice, water, brownies, an avocado, chips, cole slaw, as well as napkins, knife - everything we could possibly have wanted or needed. When we got back that night Judy met us with homemade chocolate dipped strawberries. Judy is definitely a character - loves to talk. She has a very well-run Bed and Breakfast and I hope that some day I can come back.

Room Tip: We were in #2 - great sunsets and views.
