My wife and I spend our annual bouldering holiday in the Sierra Nevada again. This year we chose Joseph's House Inn as our base camp. Situated next to a quiet street the location is meticuously well kept and mixes a European attitude with American style. The owners originally come from Switzerland and Germany but lived in the US for ages.
The rooms are spacious and clean but with the usual heavy American style and decor, nevertheless it kind of fits very nicely. As we spend our days climbing and the evenings on the great terrase overlooking the awesome garden and watching the ducklings, we didn't really had any need for something else except the quietness and relaxedness of this location. The price is high for an Inn, but justified regarding cleanliness, size of rooms, service, location, suroundings and above all the breakfast. The latter is cooked completely fresh according to your personal wishes and is a mix between continental and American/European.
Be aware that there are no cooking facilities in the rooms, but as we didn't need one this time this wasn't an issue.
The owners, Myriam and her parents are a great treat and we can only recommend you staying in their property whenever you pass through Bishop.
The attached pictures are not of great quality (cam from my mobile) but more or less capture the spirit of this amazing place!
Oh and you take breakfast together on a big table with all the other guests which guaranteed that we met some very interesting people and had great conversations.
