“A refreshing oasis in the mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2010

Located in Ponderosa (pop. 28), which is surrounded by the Sequoia National Forest, Mountain Top Bed & Breakfast is the ideal place to relax after a day or a week in the outdoors.

This b&b is a true mom & pop operation. The friendly hosts, Alvie and John Kracik, live on the second floor. On the ground floor there are two well-appointed guest bedrooms (there's also a two-level apartment with its own kitchen, called the "Mountain Pine Cabin"), a comfortable living room with a high beamed ceiling, a spa room with an 8'x8' jetted tub, and outdoor seating on the deck—all available for guest use.

The hospitable Kraciks welcome guests with a bottle of wine and appetizers and are happy to provide information on local attractions and activities. Their delicious breakfasts are beautifully presented and will keep you going the whole day (we had the opportunity to test their lasting power on a 7-hour hike). Home-baked pastries, fresh fruit with unusual dressings, eggs in phyllo dough on a bed of fresh spinach leaves, and stuffed French toast and berries were some (but not all) of the delights we were served at our two breakfasts.

Having come here after several days of camping and hiking in Kings Canyon National Park, we were looking for comfort but found so much more. Mountain Top Bed & Breakfast is truly pampering. Thick bathrobes are available in every guest room for a visit to the spa room, and I particularly enjoyed having the whirlpool all to myself early in the morning.

Mountain Top Bed & Breakfast offers a thoroughly rejuvenating stay.
