My husband and I planned a trip from Rescue, CA to Shaver Lake and decided to stay at the Sequoia View Bed & Breakfast, which was wonderful - so relaxing. The owners, Jim and Debbie, were especially welcoming and made us feel very comfortable. They are gracious hosts and their interaction with us and the other guests was quite pleasant. They were very informative - explaining specifics about various wines that we were not familiar with, as well as providing interesting information about the local area. We stayed in The Winemaker's Suite, which was absolutely lovely. The view of the mountains and vineyard from our suite and balcony was breathtaking. We also enjoyed several good wines in the tasting room located directly below our suite. Breakfast was delicious; I especially liked the quiche, potatoes and persimmon bread. Be sure not to miss lunch and/or dinner at the nearby (a few blocks) School House Restaurant and Tavern. It is rustic/elegant. We found the food scrumptious and can't wait to return to try some of their other dishes - I should add that our waiter (Greg) was extraordinary. Jim and Debbie were perfect hosts and our stay at their B&B was outstanding. We look forward to our next visit.
