“This is Sanger?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Having been a lifelong resident and visitor to Sanger I was delighted to stumble upon this charming and hospitable B&B out in the middle of the countryside. We were attending an early June wedding and the forecast was 110+ degrees! Imagine our delight at arriving at the charming, quiet, immaculate and COOL Blossom Inn! So nice that we had control of the a/c in our room, not that had to change the settings, but knowing that we could if we wanted. The breakfast was delicious and the other travelers came from near (Reedley) and far (Belgium) and were fun to talk to. The innkeeper, Sandy, made sure everything was to our liking. We were even invited to help ourselves to the fruit in their orchard. Now I will happily return to Sanger!

Room Tip: The Madsen House rooms were quiet, cool, and lovely.

I don't really have much to add to the previous reviews. We stayed in the Madson House. Though built in the 1960s (I think) the bedrooms have been decorated with antiques which give it the typical B & B feel.
We and another couple staying there were told when we called upon arrival after finding no host there, that our confirmation emails told us to call a half hour before arrival, as the hosts don't live on the property. The emails did not say that. If your emails don't have that info, be sure to call before arrival, or you will have to wait.
Also, the breakfasts, though good, and plentiful, as one other reviewer mentioned, were nothing out of the ordinary.Scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, meat and a bread product.
Part of the fun of a B & B for us is enjoying egg casseroles, french toast, homemade muffins, etc.It's not that much more work (or money) to make up a casserole the night before, and pop it in the oven in the morning.

Family members stayed here after a family wedding nearby. This B&B is a real find, set in almost manicured gardens, the two houses have 5 large rooms available, each with own bathroom, and each house with plenty of comfortable areas for lounging and relaxing. With the rose gardens, lawns and pleasant views, there was always a quiet outside place to relax. Both houses were spotless and well presented, with tea,coffee and cool drinks on hand. Breakfast was excellent, eggs, great bacon, pancakes, all hot and tasty. This truly was a memorable stay, it was a pity to leave.

Room Tip: Choose rooms in the Victorian house or the 1960s house, all are exceptional.

We live 10 minutes away and spent our 4th anniversary here. This was our 2nd time staying at the Blossom Trail BnB- both times extremely relaxing. If you get tired of the hotel smell, the mass laundered towels and basic toiletries- then try this place, it feels like home! We stayed in the cheapest room (Magnolia) this time, the first time we stayed in the Rose Suite (most expensive). We have NOT stayed in actual victorian house, that is a 2 night stay minimum. The Ranch (Madsen) house is right next door.

Here are my tidbits/comparisons:
Rose Room in the Madsen House (most expensive)
-balcony (not exactly private, those staying in the Magnolia room do not have a balcony and will venture outside on the patio which is right next to this Rose Room balcony)
-biggest suite
-jaccuzi tub
-end of the hallway in the ranch style house
-views of the sierra foothills
-KING BED

MAGNOLIA ROOM (cheapest)
-front of the house
-large enough!
-has a built in desk
-2 leather chairs
-good size bathroom with shower
-next to front door, you hear the foot traffic
-QUEEN BED

My advice- if you are just staying a night, on your way to the mountains/passing thru- the Magnolia room is just fine! If you are looking for the relaxing bnb experience (a true vacation)- then book the Rose Room (can't beat the balcony, jacuzzi, and king bed).

The innkeeper met us to give us our keys and the Wifi hot spot (be sure to ask for it upfront). The living room has the most comfortable couches and the back patio is just off the living room. The view is gorgeous as you sit out overlooking the Sierra Foothills as you hear the fountains on the property. Absolutely NO traffic noise! If you are sensitive to sound- this is the BnB for you! Do you love lush green grounds? look no further! Do you absolutely love fruit- most of the served fruit comes from the grounds themselves and they will give you a bag to pick fruit as you make your way up the hill to the Sierras.

BREAKFAST
The first time we stayed in 2010, the owners themselves cooked for us. Judy's FRENCH TOAST was amazing, and I was looking forward to that breakfast again. Since then they hired an Innkeeper and her breakfast was a basic egg, potato, bacon, toast, fruit, medley. When we go back, we will be asking for Judy's French toast and Quiche!
The coffee bar was quite impressive, many flavored creamers to chose from. Coffee served at 7am, breakfast at 8am. (This is the ONLY reason the place got a 4 star. If breakfast was a higher quality-it would be a 5 star)

My advice: if you are BIG on Breakfast and expect gourmet- then this is NOT the place for you! (Or, just stay here because honestly the place is gorgeous- and make your way to the SchoolHouse Restaurant for brunch/lunch to make up for it- keep reading).

Where to eat- do not deviate from this- I promise: THE SCHOOLHOUSE RESTAURANT. 8 minute drive East- best food in the area (I live 10 minutes away- I know my food around here). It is pricey- but a nice couple from SF explained that their prices are not that bad- when you compare it to SF. Point taken. Everything is phenomenal, even the tavern menu items; awesome bar and atmosphere. We are not super impressed with their desserts, but the food and draft beer choices more than makes up for it!

Overall: If you are looking for a "home" feel, good prices, a relaxing/beautiful atmosphere with a decent breakfast- this is the BnB for you! We will be returning in the fall!

Arrived right at the deadline for check in. The Manager was extra helpful and made sure we had all our questions answered and knew what we were doing prior to her leaving for the night. Breakfast was outstanding and the atmosphere was as a VIP guest in a private home. We even got a tour of the Miller house which was moved to the property 7 years ago. Definitely will be back next year.

A quiet oasis in the midst of, well, nowhere much at all. Traveled through on business and found the welcome warm. As I've come to find is typical of B&Bs, there is that nice attention to individual needs. As a specific example, the staff provided a bucket and towels so that I could wash my (very dirty and dusty!) car -- and this was very much appreciated.

The room was large and well-appointed. Bed was comfortable. Quiet environment. Being able to pick fresh oranges from the trees nearby was also a nice surprise.

I found the communal dining set-up/area a little confusing. There were plates and dishes one could use (and a microwave/fridge), but the only place to rinse and place the dishes was in a cordoned-off kitchen area marked "private" and "no admittance." ??? That might be a problem for people who don't like to leave dirty dishes lying around while at the same time wanting to respect privacy and "house rules" -- especially when those "rules" are posted in very large and easily-readible signage!

Breakfast as an event was nice. I met several people from overseas and it was an enjoyable time to share a meal. The food was adequate, although nothing sterling. Would have loved to have seen freshly squeezed orange juice from the oranges growing less than 20 feet away, but the juice was store bought. Given the price tag for a night's stay, I would have expected a little more in that department.

Overall, a quite lovely place to stay, but lacks the finesse and sense of welcoming warmth of, for example, the Baker House in Coalinga (which I have reviewed in another post).

We were on our way from Death Valley to Sequoia and Kings Canyon NP and found this cozy B&B in Sanger. It was a great choice. We booked 1.5 hours prior to arrival and were warmly welcomed. We got the Magnolia Room which was nicely done up, really clean and neat, you cannot find a single spot that needs renovation, it's all in perfect condition. So we felt absolutely comfortable. The interior decoration with a lot of floral design might be a bit to mawkish for male guests, but was part of the romantic charm of the house. The garden was fantastic as well. It is actually really quiet at night, so you can have a sound sleep. However, sometimes other guests might be a bit noisy on the corridor...
The next morning, we really enjoyed the freshly prepared breakfast (sausages, hash browns, eggs, fresh fruit...) and decided instantly to stay for one more night :-) We had to rise early the next day, but still we got a small breakfast which was left in the fridge for us.
If you do not bother about a 1 hour drive to Sequioa & Kings Canyon NP or even 1.5 hrs to Yosemite NP, this is the perfect getaway! We highly recommend this place!
