Rainbow Tarns
Ranked #1 of 1 Crowley Lake B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 22, 2008

We returned to Rainbow Tarns after a two-year absence and found the same charming oasis. The grounds are as beautiful as ever, the hosts friendly and generous, the rooms attractive and comfortable, and the stay restful.

As always, Brock and Diane welcome the weary traveler with good wine and appetizers in the afternoon. Breakfasts at Rainbow Tarns are a feast for the eyes as well as the gullet: colorful, ample, and delicious.

The area abounds with natural attractions; after a day's sightseeing or hiking, returning to the Rainbow Tarns is like a homecoming. Sit on the porch and gaze at the ever-changing light on the ponds; lie in a hammock under the willow tree and listen to the bubbling brook; or sink into a sofa in the wood-beamed living room for a spell of reading or conversation.

For all these reasons, Rainbow Tarns remains our favorite place to stay east of the Sierra.

My husband & I have come here two years in a row.. the only B & B we have ever come back to more than once. The place is beautiful and cozy, and the breakfast is always wonderful. The inn keepers, Brock & Diane are also very nice & professional. They pay close attention to the smallest details that make you feel so welcome... i.e. champagne, cheese& crackers, and chocolates in your room when you arrive. The rooms are very comfortable, and they have a sweet dog named Crowely that is extremely well behaved. You feel like you are staying with friends when you come here & the prices for lodging are very reasonable. We'll be back next ski season!

This Bed and Breakfast is a beautiful place to spend a weekend. It has 3 duck ponds, mature trees, and gorgeous gardens all surrounding a turn-of-the-century hunting lodge! The views are of the snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada mountains and are breath-taking! The touches of detail make you feel very special to be allowed to share this magnificent property with the owners, Brock & Diane Thoman. The breakfasts served were all gourmet with great attention paid to both ingredients and presentation. Considering the quality of the rooms and atmosphere, the rates are very reasonable starting at $115 per night. I guarantee you wont want to return home.
