“A unique and enjoyable stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

My wife and I spent two nights at the Restful Nest in mid October 2012. We were attracted to the B and B by the positive reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. Our accommodation was fine. We stayed in the guest house which was very quiet and comfortable albeit a little dated in decor. But what made our stay a memorable and most enjoyable one was the hospitality and friendliness of our hosts, Lois and Jon. As previous guests have noted, our breakfasts were superb in both quality and quantity but we also greatly enjoyed sitting and eating breakfast with our hosts and the stimulating and informative conversations we had with them and other guests. We also enjoyed the rural location, 5 miles from the town of Mariposa and having deer coming to feed in the morning.

I found this amazing place through trip advisor and it was definately the best decision of our trip. It's about 8 mi from Mariposa but absolutely fantastic property including a large pool and a nice and hot jacuzzi which can be used until 10 o'clock - really nice after a day of traveling. We stayed at the guest house which is quite spacious and can probably accomadate kids as well with a neat little balcony in front of it. But the best is definately the hosts: Lois and John really made us feel at home. You can feel that it is their dream come true to run this b&b. Words can never be enough, try it yourself! I can only recommend this place for anyone who really wants a true American experience with amazing people to stay here. Btw: Breakfast is just incredible, words can't do it justice! It was by far the best we had our whole US trip.

What a delightful place ,having done a road trip with my friend this place was absolutely the best scenery ,landscape beauty i can not put into words.Lois and Jon-Pierre were absolute stars ,have never met such friendly hosts they are an asset to the place.I loved every minute from getting stuck in the swinging tyre to the deer ,foxes getting fed.Even a packed luch when we went out the next day i recommend staying here and wished we had more time here.I will have memories for life staying here with two lovely people .The Restful Nest is a must stay.

Room Tip: Any room has a lovely view

A true home away from home, like staying with relatives that you actually enjoy being with and who love to feed their guests. The view of the Sierra Nevada foothills from our downstairs room, overlooking the pool and spa, the view from the deck and breakfast room, the oak-covered acres of land of this deer and fox haven, all conspired to keep us out of driving into Yosemite Valley one day of the five that we were there. We were glad that we took Jon Pierre's suggestion to visit Butterfly Winery that day, Just the drive on rural back roads, with changing views with each turn of the road made it worthwhile, not to mention the bottles of wine we took home.

Room Tip: A small B&B with not a bad room. Accept with confidence any room that is available.

We had such a wonderful time at Restful Nest! So glad we booked here, and if we are back in the area we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. The setting is so peaceful and beautiful and Jon-Pierre and Lois are delightful hosts. As mentioned in other posts, Lois' breakfast feasts are unbelievable! Definitely started out our day well nourished, and the leftover cut fruit from breakfast that Lois packed up and sent along with us was the most perfect snack after a long hike in Yosemite. The room was spacious and clean, the bed comfortable, and the pool and hot tub so refreshing and relaxing. The one hour drive to the entrance of Yosemite was beautiful and the 10 minute drive to Mariposa always interesting as we saw wildlife along the way....flocks of quail, a doe and buck, wild turkeys....I wish I was back there right now! Thanks again Jon-Pierre and Lois!

I never met such welcoming hosts, it gives the Bed & Breakfast a familial and peaceful atmosphere. You can enjoy your evenings around the pool or in the hot tub after a day spent at the Yosemite National Park, 45 minutes away. The rooms are clean and Lois prepares you in the morning a delightful and huge breakfast.
Thank you Lois and Jean-Pierre.
