This beautiful B &B sits just outside the southern gate of Yosemite. But what really makes the stay memorable is the hospitality and charm of the hosts--David and Sheran. They truly live by the adage: it's not how much you make for a dollar, it's how much you can give.
We brought our college student daughter with us and wanted her to enjoy a weekend away from school that would be relaxing and different from any other she might experience. She loved every minute --as did we.
Since it was Labor Day we were prepared for a busy day at the park--but David and Sheran know all the ins and outs of the area. On Saturday afternoon David took us for a spin in a beautifully restored Model T. When we got to the gate we were waved in like VIPs . And while other visitors were turned away at the Mariposa Grove due to the crowds-- David was heartily greeted and given the go-ahead to take us right up to the grove.
Be prepared for a bit of attention--heads turn and you will likely find yourself on numerous folks' vacation videos as you drive past in David's autos. Fun!
Sheran's breakfasts are both beautiful and delicious, served on fine china and antique silver. No paper napkins here-- her cloth napkins are all hand embroidered. Almost everywhere you look in their charming home you can find unique collections of high quality antiques and David and Sheran are happy to share their knowledge with you if you are interested. Yet the environment is not at all stuffy. In fact, ask David if he'll show you his antique coat hanger collection--it's a hoot!
What more can you ask in a vacation than the jaw dropping beauty of Yosemite combined with the charm and hospitality of a genuinely wonderful couple? Thanks.
