On arrival at the Restful Nest, we were welcomed by the owners Lois and Jon. Although they are not the youngest of age, they still are young at heart and make you feel at home right away. The room we had was spacious, clean and well kept, a good bed and a good shower.
When referred to the Certificate of Excellence, Lois glows with pride. If there were Michelin stars to be given for a breakfast, Lois and Jon would get all 3 stars in one go. Lois gets up early in the morning to prepare everything fresh. The table is nicely set, with luxury tableware. Guest are invited for breakfast by the bell 15 minutes before the show starts. A parade of fresh fruit, muffins, freshly baked bread, bacon strips, eggs or omelets, yoghurt, fresh juices and tea and coffee follow.
You must bring a good appetite, and, you must stand strong as Lois and Jon can be a bit forceful to eat some more, or at least empty your plate. With this breakfast you are assured to be hiking in Yosemite without craving for a snack. But if you do, they have made you a delicious healthy survival pack, with all the goodies that were left after breakfast.
We were hesitant to visit the Restful Nest because the smoke in Yosemite caused by the rim fire, but I am glad we did as the owners did not only open their house, but also their hearts to their guests. That in itself was worth the travel.
