We stayed at the Bellevue Guesthouse for 2 nights in the low season of mid-February. After a long stressful week, everything instantly changed when we arrived at the Bellevue. Ozzy and Eva warmly welcomed us into their home, and made us a delicious breakfast (we arrived in the early morning). We immediately felt like we were home and among close, old friends. While Eva prepared our breakfast Ozzy told us everything we wanted to know about Sequoia national park, including maps and a newsletter. This benefited us and we were able to snowshoe among the sequoias in the Giant Forest on a guided ranger tour - for free!
The room was cozy and clean, and we took advantage of the hot tub after a long day of hiking. Every day Eva made a different breakfast, each one delicious and unique (freshly squeezed juices, coffee, tea, danish, ham and eggs, bagels, etc. etc.). One night we enjoyed some wine around their fireplace and Eva treated us to fine German chocolate.
The pictures of the house don't do a justice to where it is located. To get to the house you climb part of a mountain and the house is situated on the hillside. The view from the porch is spectacular, and at night even with the windows closed you can still hear the river flowing at the base of the mountain.
We truly felt like we were home at the Bellevue, and Ozzy and Eva were wonderful hosts. My only regret was not staying longer. We will definitely be back on our next trip!
