“Bad start.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

We recently stayed at the Branded Calf B&B. Upon our arrival we were greeted by a man who was not wearing a shirt or shoes and looked like he had just crawled out of bed. Not too long after that the person who makes the breakfast in the morning arrived to greet us. The rest of our stay was uneventful and enjoyable.

We stayed here two nights, one after a full day at Sequoia and the second after a full day at King's Canyon. We enjoyed room #4 very much. It was decorated nicely and had lots of room. Breakfast each morning was very good. The outside seating area was nice to sit back and relax. There is also a dog, Cue, that was adorable and loved belly rubs. If you have time, go to Cat Haven just down the street.

The Branded Calf B&B is located close to the Park's boundary to Sequoia and Kings Canyon and an excellent place to stay to travel on to Yosemite the following day as we did. You will find the owner Connie a wonderful hostess who is friendly and interested in having you stay and feel like it is your own home. The location is a ranch setting with a wonderful view set far back from the road so it is very peaceful and quiet. Each bedroom is very quiet even when all rooms are occupied as it was during our stay. You will not leave hungry after breakfast which is at your convenience. The gathering area is very large as is the patio.

A really nice scenic serene setting with comfortable rooms, good people, and wonderful breakfast. Makes for the perfect home base to enjoy both Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Park. Having stayed at other options in the area this is the clear right choice.

A really nice place located in the hills and surrounded by lots of nature with great views. A homelike house with comfortable rooms, superb breakfast and a very friendly owner! The perfect location to start trips into Kings Canyon or Sequoia National Park.
