“A Great little guesthouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Residence Bellevue Guesthouse was everything that everyone said it was - charming, well located to Sequoia National Park, quiet and secluded, and best of all, the owners, Ozzy and Ava, are wonderful and after only two nights, we felt they were treasured friends. Ava's breakfast was delicious and on our last day when we had to leave too early for a real breakfast, she packed us a perfect lunch. We left some clothes there by mistake and they were sent to us as soon as they were discovered. The only down side was that we were there when the heat wave was on (96-98 during the day) and the air conditioning thermostat was located downstairs so we cooked for two nights with only an overhead fan to cool us. In cooler weather it shouldn't be a problem. Drinking wine on the deck in the evening was the perfect antidote.

Two couples (myself, my wife and friends from France), stayed 3 nights at Bellevue Guesthouse. Guestrooms are upstairs, very private and quiet.
Devoted hosts and warm reception, special breakfast, romantic place, comfortable rooms and the perfect location (far from the crowd and just 2 miles from park entrance) made our stay super enjoyable.
By night we have been sitting on the large deck, enjoying the terrific mountain views , listening to the sound of the river and watching the stars.
Merci pour tout! Et a'la prochaine!

Ozzie & Eva welcomed us to Bellevue when we arrived. Our stay was so great. The quarters were cozy & clean. Breakfast was s rumptious. Our hosts were most helpful with what to do. Our favorite part of our time there was happy hour on the deck with gorgeous views of the mountains, Morro Rock & the river in the valley below. We loved our stay here.

My wife often feels that I cannot find a good place to stay for our vacations. But this time, she was completely satisfied! The nice, warm, home coming feeling start from first time knocking on the door. The cozy romance guest rooms, clean convenient bathroom, and a family room full with books and games in the private upstairs made us really feel at home. A morning walk in the fresh air together with a family of deer while the boys are still in the bed, coming back for the beautiful, delicious, and nutrient breakfast, with kindles lit up and even a flag from our home country on the table… Residence Bellevue Guesthouse conveniently located a few miles from everything, park gate, gas station, a nice restaurant and some cheaper faster place to eat, even a nice chocolate/gift store.

My parents, brother and I stayed at the Residence Bellevue Guesthouse for a couple of nights while visiting Sequoia National Park in October. Bellevue was a great place to stay for a few reasons.
The Guesthouse and property are your own little slice of nature. Although just up the hill from the main road into Sequoia National Park, it feels as though its miles away from its nearest neighbor. The views off the back porch toward the mountains of Sequoia are incredible.
Ozzie and Eva are great hosts. We had some good conversations at night and in the morning over breakfast. They have recommendations on local restaurants and sights to see in the National Park. The breakfasts were very tasty, and there was always plenty of food.
And the Bellevue Guesthouse itself is a clean and comfortable place to stay. We had the 2nd floor to ourselves. The bedrooms were of an adequate size, the bed comfortable, and the bathroom was spacious and clean.

A perfect place to stay for your trip into Sequoia Park. The rooms are very nice, the bathroom crystal clean and full of amenities. The hosts, Eva and Osman, are very welcoming and will serve you one of the fullest and most varied breakfast prepared by chef Eva. You can then perfectly drive and trek into the park with all required energy.
Osman is also full of valuble information about the park which come very handy.
A clear recommendation for travellers in the region.
