I was reminded of scenes from `Gone with the Wind` when staying in this old family homestead and wished we could postpone our sightseeing of the National parks to investigate further the treasures that fill the home and garden.
Monica and Jack were warm friendly and welcoming and we felt totally spoiled throughout our 2 night stay. Our every wish was anticipated and catered for, the bed luxurious, the breakfasts a round of treats and our departure reluctant!

Room Tip: Have dinner at Monets in Exeter if you can!

Good morning, dear Guests. We have just re-read your beautiful, appreciative review from way back ion 2013, and we'd like to extend an invitation to you to visit us again. There are so many interesting things to do, new things to see and, of course, all the things you enjoyed to do again. We hope that 2017 will be the year that you will come back.
Warm regards,
Monica and Jack

Whimsy, relaxing walks and conversation, excellent food. Four friends stepped back in time to enjoy the ambience of working orange groves and grazing cattle. Monica and Jack are gracious hosts. Jack's sculptures are quite remarkable, sprinkled about the grounds and inside the house. Monica is the curator, well versed in the history of her family and the 100 year-old house in which she was raised. Amenities of the modern world were never very far away, but the sensation of isolation on a turn-of-the-century farm was real. Top it all off with walks, scenic drives, and morning breakfasts of uniquely prepared foods and drinks. When you do go for a walk, take Sweet Pea. She does not bark and is a great companion.

Room Tip: Only two rooms. Take your pick.

Arriving at Wicky-Up Ranch is like stepping into a slower more gracious era where your needs and wants are indulged with great warmth and skillful attention. The turn-of-the century Craftsman house is comfy and beautiful at the same time, with interesting family keepsakes adding to the pleasing ambiance. The bed was divine and we woke to the sound of mourning doves. This was followed by some of the best breakfasts we've ever had in our travels. Monica and Jack were friendly and helpful with planning our days in Sequoia and Kings Canyon and knew just the right places to have dinner in the surrounding areas. But, it was the little things as well. We appreciated sitting out under the veranda and enjoying refreshments after our drive to the ranch. And, it was nice to find a card acknowledging our anniversary on the pillow that night. This is a rare find and we totally enjoyed our three-day stay. We'll definitely be back!

Our innkeepers were not only welcoming, but warm and gracious. We had great conversations with Monica and Jack about the local history and orange growing. They provide concierge service to make sure we saw all the most important sights in the area. The beds were dreamy and comfortable and the food was beautifully presented and tasty as well; all served in the cedar paneled dining room with high end china from Villeroy and Boch. The close proximity to Sequoia National Park made it a perfect choice of lodging.

Room Tip: For complete privacy chose the Sunset Room upstairs. The Lucy Harding room downstairs with the cedar paneling makes it warm, cozy and romantic.

We were greeted by a whimsical, sculpted, marching band in the driveway which set a delightful tone for our visit. Our hosts graciously took as much time as necessary to help us get from the B&B to both Sequoia and Kings Canyon. Their directions and suggested plans were most helpful. The breakfasts were fantastic and were made with the freshest of ingredients. Both Monica and Jack are great cooks! Our sleeping accommodations were terrific (and quiet) - the mattress was firm and felt like new. We enjoyed walking the grounds through orange groves and viewing the lowing cattle in the nearby hills. The "ranch" is beautifully appointed with collectables and antiques and has a comfortable screened in porch. Definitely 5 stars! Wish we lived closer by so that we could visit more often.
