Queen's Inn by the River
Ranked #6 of 10 Oakhurst B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 12, 2014

We just had an amazing weekend at the Queens Inn. We were booked for only 1 night but after the great time we had we booked another night, due to a cancellation. The people who run the inn are amazing!. The wine bar is a great place to meet people who are staying their also. We made several friends and had a great time sitting around the fire pit talking about were we were from. We met people from Hawaii, Venice Beach, Pasadena, and the locals (the best!). What a great time we had going out for food (Narrow Gauge Inn) ..referred by Denise (awesome)!! Oh, and what about opening our back door in the evening and seeing deer wandering around, and in the morning we woke up to a beaver in the creek (had to explain otters don't live in rivers). lol
Great time overall. Highly recommend staying at the "Queen's Inn"

Room Tip: Room 5 is the one with the love tub :)

We have stayed at The Queen's Inn by the River on two occasions. Each time we've stayed, we've been met by a warm and welcoming staff. I have had some of the best sleep of my life at the Queen's Inn! The rooms are very clean and beautifully decorated. We spent time relaxing in our room, on the little private deck overlooking the river and in the inn's wine bar! Not only does the Inn have wine bar that serves some very fine yet affordable wines, it shares property with Idle Hour Winery. We had such a lovely time at Queen's Inn, we only left the property to eat. It's great for singles, families and couples. I'm sure you'll love this place as much as we do!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the river. So beautiful!

The rooms and property were very beautiful making for a relaxing stay. The rooms were large, uncluttered and sparkling clean. The bathrooms were nicely decorated and I loved the large shower!
The staff was extremely nice and helpful. The continental breakfast was good - pastries, bagels, cereal, fresh juice and delicious coffee. I would like to suggest they add some kind of protein to the mix - perhaps small yogurt cups, packages of mixed nuts or cheese. Other than that, I found the place friendly, beautiful, relaxing and will stay here again if we are in the area.

This place is perfect. The staff is really friendly and helpful. The room was big, clean, and pleasantly decorated. The location is on the outskirts of town and close enough to the park entrance. We really enjoyed the patio and bar area, where we drank and played yahtzee. We hope to return soon!! Thanks!!

Book as quick as you can. There are only 8 rooms.
Stayed there on april 25th.
Family operated and friendly with a wine taste room (free for guests) and they also sell beer.
Very large room with a fireplace and a patio at the back of the room.
Location is between the highway and the river so very quieted. Half way down to the river is a small quieted place where the motel has made at cosy spot.
Breakfast is what it is. OK but go to the Sweetwater restaurant for a FULL breakfast.
They do not advertise very much at the turnoff of the highway so you need a GPS. Or if you come from the south, you turn just before the Sweetwater restaurant (very good food and wine list).

I've stayed here several times and have had a fabulous experience each and every time! The setting is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and quaint, and the coffee and breakfast were great! Deb was very friendly and accomodating. Oh also, if you like wine, there is a winery on site, with a tasting room and a beer and wine bar. The wine bar has entertainment during the warmer months. And the winery..Idle Hour, spectacular!

Room Tip: Just ask about size, they are all a little different, each one I've been is has been great

Nice and quiet (although we don't know how it is when the wine bar/patio is operating). Lovely location, very accommodating staff, and clean, attractive rooms. Each room has a little patio looking out onto a pretty landscape. The beds were a little too soft for our taste, but everything else was great. We aren't wine drinkers, so we can't give an opinion on that part of the experience, but everyone we know in Oakhurst raves about that aspect, too. We recommend it!
