“Muffins, humming birds and an amazing view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

My fiance and I stayed here in summer 2012 during our trip of California.
We chose the place for hiking Sequoia and Kings Canyon.

We had the most wonderful stay here. The Bellevue Guest House is located in the hills of Three Rivers, a few hundred meters from the main street and thus a quiet, secluded place that you have all to yourself. If you stay there you will be the only ones staying there at that time since there are only two rooms available. The are both located in the upper part of the house so that you can be alnoe if you want to. Close to the rooms there is a large bath room and you have places to sit, relax and read a book.

If you go downstairs you have the main living room with a large kitchen and a wonderful patio with the most beatiful view you can imagine of Sequoia National Park and the mountains surrounding Three Rivers. That's also the place whereyou will usually have your breakfast, see the pictures attached to this review. Breakfast is really great, very light and tasty. If you have any wishes the owners, Eva and Ozzy, will try their best to fulfill them, We strongly recommend having the cup cakes / muffins. They are AWESOME!

This is not just a B&B but a truely private, serene place to stay. If you like large, anonymous hotels don't go here. But if you like places that are special and can tell a story Bellevue Guesthouse is for you. The whole house is filled with items Ozzy and Eva have collected over the years and all of them tell a story that the owners will be happy to share. You can also just sit outside, enjoy the view and watch the humming birds which frequently visit the house.

The rooms and beds are really nice. We are light sleepers and had no problems falling asleep quickly - however, be aware that almost everywhere in Three Rivers you will hear the river. We went hiking every day and got all the information we needed. When we visited therewas road work on the way to Sequoia and Eva told us exactly when to drive there to avoid long waiting times, We got all the infromation we needed, including hiking maps and guide books.

The two days we stayed at Bellevue Guesthouse were truely wonderful and we will surely return next time. Thank you, Eva and Ozzy, for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: There are two rooms, you can choose which one you want when you are there. We found both very nice.

Thoroughly recommend staying here as a base for travelling through the magnificent Sequoia National Park. Ozzie and Eva went out of their way to help us in all aspects of our trip, even to the point of finding a way for us to travel to Three Rivers/ get back to airport, as we arrived without a car. And Eva's breakfasts are truly amazing!

Highly recommended

After driving across from Las Vegas it was so nice to get into the mountains and arrive at the quiet and peaceful Bellevue Guesthouse, sit on the balcony, relax with a cup of tea and look at the amazing view of Moro Rock and Sequoia National Park, and then a hummingbird flew up to the tree next to us! Eva and Ozzie are very friendly and helpful hosts with lots of suggestions of thngs to do, we visited Exeter to see the wall murals, Woodlake to see the Arboretum ( and more hummingbirds) Kaweah Post Office - the oldest and smallest still operating post office in the USA, the Art day in Three Rivers. Eva's breakfasts were delicious with something different each day and wonderful fresh fruit. Breakfast was also the time the mother black bear and her cub came looking for acorns. Upstairs we had the bedrooms, lounge and bathroom to ourselves and could wake up to the amazing view of the park. We stayed for a week, and spent most days in Sequoia NP. We saw squirrels, deer, bears and the amazing trees. Some places can be crowded but if you take the walk trails there is no-one about except you and the trees. The best walks for us were Moro Rock, General Sherman Tree and Congress Loop, Crescent Meadow and Big Trees Trails but there are lots more. After all our walking and driving though the park we would stop in Three Rivers to get our dinner then come back and sit on the balcony of Bellevue Guesthouse and watch the sunset.

Room Tip: Both rooms are lovely.

My family and I stayed at Bellevue Guesthouse for 2 nights in November, 2012. The bottom line: it was simply a great comfortable place to stay. Because we wanted to stay at somewhere very close to the National Park, we looked into all reviews posted at many websites including Tripadvisor and concluded this would be the best place for us this time. We knew our conclusion was right from the beginning since both Eva and Ozzie were very friendly and helpful for us to have a fruitful time during our stay. Eva's yummy breakfast was wonderful and we were all impressed as well! We would like to come back here if we had a chance.

We (my son, now 16, and me) had been two times to Residence Bellevue Guesthouse. First in July 2010 and now again in 2012. The house is just wonderful located with a great view over the Sequoia NP, quiete, far away from the traffic and also very close to the Park. After staying there for one day, I just felt relaxed and when we left in 2010 we knew both, it wouldn´t be our last stay there. We made great hikes and just enjoyed it, to come home and sitting at the terrace outside, looking to the park, watching all the hummingbirds and the nature. When we come again this year, we felt as if we had left just the day before. Everything about the marvellous breakfast von Eva is already said and although about this really very extraordinary hosts. We hope, that it is possible to come again, because we are planning our next trip and of course, we want to stay there again. It´s just wonderful being there.

We stayed here with our 4 children and we loved our stay here. Ozzie was a fountain of knowledge on the local area and gave us some great suggestions on the parks and places to eat. Eva's breakfast was fantastic, and the best and freshest breakfast we had during our 6 weeks stay in the US. We loved seeing the Hummingbirds whilst we were eating breakfast (and the woodpecker - though shhh, don't tell Ozzie - he thinks the woodpeckers are pests!). The upstairs was comfortable and we were made to feel very welcome. Close to Sequoia National Park with the magnificent and beautiful Sequoia trees. Clean, comfortable and Ozzie and Eva were the perfect hosts.

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.
