"Very nice surronding, very calm."
Joy and clay aré extrememy friendly and the Joy breakfast is fabulous and extremely well and delicately presented.Genuine Expedia guest review
Bless their hearts! These are two of the nicest people you will ever encounter. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is excellent. They make you feel at home. It's a little off the beaten path but well worth it. 5 stars!Genuine Expedia guest review
The couple that runs the bed and breakfast are very amiable and helpful, and whip up some great breakfast! An observation deck on one side of the house offers views of deer, wild turkey, and humming birds galore. It's a bit of a drive to get out to the B&B, but it's quite relaxing once you're there. Highly recommend!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Don't be put off that this relaxing, hospitable, friendly b&b is off the main road. Believe me, it is well worth the extra few minutes drive to reach this warm, inviting home. Joy and Clay were so helpful and I was only there for one night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A cozy, beautiful place to stay"
Beautiful natural enviroenment, cozy and clean room, great breakfast, hopitable and super kind host and hotess. The place is a such a nice surprise with good price after a whole day exhausting hiking in the Yosemity national park.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

No complaints here. We had a great stay. It was very comfortable and relaxing. Breakfast was great too.Genuine Expedia guest review
This place is absolutely amazing... far exceeded my expectations. Great service, great people, great atmosphere, great room!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was the perfect place to spend our anniversary! Clay and Joy are a delight. The breakfast is amazing! The rooms are clean, comfortable and have wonderful added touches. The home is warm and inviting. Birds and deer are right there at the back deck. What a beautiful sight! We will definitely stay again. We highly recommend!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a great place to stay. The owners were informative about the area and provided a fantastic breakfast. Very quiet too. The rooms are laid out well with a beautiful view off the back deck with 5 hummingbird feeders.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One of the Best B&Bs I've ever stayed at."
This place is charming, spacious and an additional marvel to add to a Yosemite stay. Nestled in a beautiful valley, the place provides a long and wide deck out back for viewing and star-gazing. The owners have a group of hummingbird feeders that attract hundreds of the little fellows. Our room was very comfortable and roomy. Breakfast was delicious. […] The owners are warm and welcoming and love to help. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful nature, friendly owners, great breakfast"
We stayed at this B&B during a trip to the Yosemite National Park. This B&B is in the backcountry, in beautiful nature. It is essentially a (big) house converted into a B&B. A friendly senior couple (good people) supplementing their income by running a B&B. Very close to the town of Mariposa and about 40 minutes from the Yosemite park entrance. The […] room was not big, but it was clean and comfortable. I would recommend this place to a friend! I look forward to staying here again on a future trip to Yosemite.

Small but pleasant room. No complaints. Good value for the money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Not the B&B experience I'm used to or expected but, not bad. The B&B's location was rather remote-several miles out of town. My cell phone reception was spotty at the B&B. I had to drive back to Mariposa for decent reception and meals excluding breakfast. The B&B is an average sized single story ranch style house. My 1st impression was that I had just […] driven up to a total stranger's house to be put up for the night in their spare bedroom. The room I occupied was indeed a former spare bedroom modified to have a private entrance. An adjoining bathroom was turned into an en suite bath for the "guest" room. I noticed only two other "guest" rooms. The room was neat, clean, quiet and, furnished with all the essentials. Breakfast was substantial, well prepared, served on decent china at a table near a bay window in the eat-in kitchen but, offered limited choices. The owners provide food and water for the native wildlife so guests can enjoy them at close range on the deck at the back of the house. Although the owners mentioned that there were other guests, I didn't encounter any during my brief stay. There was a swimming pool outside my room but, I didn't use it or ask if it was available for use. I don't know whether I would use this B&B as a vacation destination but, it worked as a stop-over point on the way to somewhere else. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The setting is wonderfully peaceful"
When I booked the reservation, I didn't think that Mariposa was a very long drive to Yosemite Valley. It is quite a drive about an hour plus away to the entrance. We booked the cabin which is a two bedroom, two bath unit with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and nice living space - quite large. Double French Doors lead to a deck, with dining seating […] and BBQ. The view from the living space and deck are wonderful. We sat outside and enjoyed wine on the deck. Later other guests came to the deck further down and we all sat together in a covered area, enjoyed talking with them about their experiences in Yosemite. Clay and Joy are very warm host and hostess. The breakfast was delicious and abundant! They shared much about the area. There is a lovely museum in the town of Mariposa about 15 minutes away. If you like seclusion and privacy in a peaceful setting this is the place. It is a bit of a drive back into Yosemite, though something you may need to consider if you have lots of plans to see the Valley, Tioga pass and Glacier Point. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"It is perfectly calm and quite vacation"
Yosemite is breath taking so we did not start to drive to the hotel until close to 8PM. It was dark and we got lost with GPS giving us wrong directions. That was the only down side of our stay. Clay came and pick us up. From then on, it became the perfect vacation. It is a perfect house on the hill, with animals outside of the deck. The room is extremely […] clean, and believe me as I am very picky. The breakfast Joy cooked is perfect! Actually, my 10 years old beg me to give them a 5 star rating as he enjoyed it so much. We will definitely come back just to relax next time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"we had a great stay..."
rented the 2br apartment with 1.5 baths, balcony and 8.30am breakfast. all worked out perfect and the owners are really supportive and friendly. will go there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
This was great for a family. We had 2 full bedrooms each with its own bath and a large living room and kitchen. The breakfast was wonderful and filled everyone up enough that we didn't get hungry all day in the park and could play til dinner (unusual for my family that wants to eat every 2 hours). Clay and Joy were extremely nice. It is located about […] midway between the south and west gates. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Far from town"
We actually did not stay at this B&B because it was over 7 miles from Mariposa. The description failed to mention that it was secluded in a neighborhood away from restaurants and shopping. We were shown our room which looked nice but decided to return to town and stayed in a hotel chain. If we had known exactly where the B&B was located, we might have […] purchased items for dinner. IUnfortunately, we had prepaid for this facility...warning to all to make sure the location is where you want to stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for a family"
The site is exceptional. It's a hut surrounded by beautiful green hills with a stream. We had fun.Genuine Expedia guest review
This place was fantastic. Clay and Joy were fabulous hosts. We've stayed in several B&B's and very much appreciated the snacks provided in our room, which came in handy for hikes, and the addition of a Krupa to heat hot water very quickly. Those were just a few of the personal touches. Stay here, you will not regret it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Joy and Clay run a very comfortable B&B about 45 mins from Yosemite at their beautiful home in the foothills of the Sierra mountains. No hesitation in recommending them for couples. Humming birds and deer feeding from the verandah absolutely wonderful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great view from Bed and Breakfast patio"
The Sage room is attached to the main house but has its own entrance. The room was small and cozy. Not much room for luggage especially if you plan on hiking in Yosemite and need to bring backpacks and hiking cloths, etc. The room did have a small refrigerator and a few dresser drawers for storage along with a half closet for hanging cloths. If you […] plan on visiting Yosemite for hiking purposes and want to get up early because it is about a 1 hour drive to the Village, you will miss breakfast. They do not serve breakfast until 8:30 or 9:00 which is late for some people who want to get going on their vacation. The only day we did have breakfast was the day we were leaving and I will say the food was very good. Overall we would stay their again but maybe in a bigger room.

"Made For A Great Trip!"
With the aid of GPS, we were guided straight to this B&B less than 15 minutes outside the small town of Mariposa. We were welcomed into their home and due to a last minute cancellation, received a complimentary upgrade. The owners were very accommodating, helped us find a great place for dinner and fixed a great breakfast each morning. Overall, the […] stay was even better than I had hoped and will recommend to others open to staying less than an hour outside the Yosemite National Park entrance.

"Would stay again if needed!"
Breakfast was spectacular. The two bedroom apartment was roomy. The owners were extremly helpful with directions. Make sure you let them know where you are going so you dont get stuck on a dirt road for 9 miles. Lots of wildlife on the property with wonderful views. LOVED IT and I would recommend this B&B hands down.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Bed and Breakfast for Nature Lovers"
the best experience!! room, installation, and NATURE!!!(deers, hummingbirds..) Note: it is about 40 minutes from Yosemite, so I would not use it if the idea is to stay in the park longer than 3 days.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great, quiet property. Host very accomodating. Peaceful setting.Genuine Expedia guest review
Joy and Clay were just great, beautiful views, great food...... and wildlife come right up to the home.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Went to the B&B after a day of walking around Yosemite and thought the Yosemite B&B was an awesome experience. Owners were incredibly friendly and our room was perfect. Also, the breakfast (homemade cinnamon french toast (with three kinds of homemade syrup), eggs, two kinds of sausage, fruit salad, juice) was incredible.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Yosemite Bed and Breakfast A+"
Clay and Joy made our stay exceptionally pleasant. Our room was very private and stocked with bottled water and all the conveniences we needed. Breakfasts were superb, a different gourmet breakfast each morning. The views from their home was fantastic and the birds came right up to the porch. What a great experience! Less than an hour to Yosemite, with […] beautiful views on the way there. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Finding gold in Mariposa"
This is a true B&B experience of living in your hosts' home and being made to feel like one of the family. A good value when compared to expensive Yosemite area lodging. Mariposa is less than an hours drive from the south portal of the park. Montie and Ruth Ann cook up a hearty breakfast and get you on your way with excellent advice based on their many […] years in the area. Their hilltop property may seem out of the way at first but I quickly found myself at home walking their secluded ten acre lot and enjoying the best of country living. In town they recommended a first rate restaurant called Savory's which was as good as any Bay Area eatery #I had lunched at Chez Panisse.# Their local knowledge will save you time in the vast area of the park and get you to places you might have otherwise overlooked. Give them a shout and you'll be glad you visited. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Away from the crowds"
The owners of this bed and breakfast were so nice and very helpful. The breakfasts were fantastic and the view out the back is beautiful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cute & Comfy"
Joy and Clay were WONDERFUL. Breakfast every morning was delicious, they were extremely helpful with recommendations for dinner/directions to the park, and their B & B was warm and welcoming (especially after getting caught in a storm while hiking!). We would most definitely recommend people to stay here :)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good overnight stop over"
Very friendly welcoming owners. Breakfast excellent. Very comfortable room. Local wildlife in garden. Hummingbirds.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A great place"
We stayed here for 4 nights while we explored Yosemite NP. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and in a nice location, and Clay and Joy are both delightful and friendly people who take first class care of their guests. The property is located near the small historic and interesting mining frontier town of Mariposa, which has plentiful attractive […] shops and places to eat, as well as a good supermarket. Mariposa is Spanish for butterfly, and the Monarch butterflies make their astounding journey from Canada to California and Mexico each year - a story worth looking up on Google. The drive into Yosemite National Park takes about an hour, but it is a very scenic route through the foothills along the valley, and is reminiscent of the Scottish highlands. It is worth the journey to stay in such a pleasant place, and well worth escaping the tourist crowds in Yosemite Valley itself. Don't miss the classic viewpoint of the 'Half Dome' from Glacier Point, and if you want to hike the Half Dome you can (and I did), but you will need to enter a lottery in March, and find out in April if you have a permit for a specific day that season. It's how the numbers are managed, and you wonder if we are going to have to do the same thing in the UK on places like Snowden, Ben Nevis and Scafell Pike. The hike to the top of the Half Dome is tough, and the top is only accessible by hauling yourself up on the cables that are set up each summer - they are steeper than pictures show! Do stay here.

"Perfect for a home-stay style of accommodation"
We only stayed for one night, having visited Yosemite N/P, however we would happily have stayed longer if our itinerary had allowed. Joy & Clay are charming hosts, and the accommodation is very clean & comfortable. The breakfast that Joy prepares will satisfy the largest of appetites ! Overall this is perfect if you are looking for a short stop-over […] when visit the Parks. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This little gem of a b&b is like paradise. An hour outside Yosemite gates it is perfectly located for sightseeing but isolated enough to be totally relaxing. I won't spoil the surprise but there is a world of wildlife surrounding the house, it's like an enchanted forest. We can't rate the place and it's lovely owners highly enough. Desperate to return […] here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great little place to stay with friendly owners"
We chose this place as we wanted a stay near Yosemite national park without paying high prices nor staying in a bare tent/cabin. The location is slightly off the beaten tracks in a nearby town but what we found amazed us. Nice clean room, friendly owners and a wonderful view out of the backyard. If you have time, do stay for the breakfast. The female […] owner is an amazing cook :). The owners were extremely helpful as well. As we were rushing into Yosemite to catch sunrise, they helped prepared some sandwiches which we could heat up in the microwave in room (there is also fridge, coffee maker as well) before driving in. Its a short 45 min drive to the national park. In all, it was an extremely pleasant stay and highly recommended! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very welcoming and restful stay"
Clay and Joy made us feel very welcome in their home. The room was both comfortable and spacious, with lots of additional amenities. When we arrived in the evening they offered very helpful recommendations of where to go in town. Breakfast was great, using local produce.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is a lovely B&B in a beautiful rural setting (~45 min drive to Yosemite valley) with interesting wildlife. We stayed in the cottage and the bed was extremely comfy and the room was clean and spacious. Joy and Clay were lovely hosts who went out of their way to make us feel welcome and help us, for example they planned and printed us out a route […] for our day in Yosemite.

I had read all the reviews about the beautiful countryside and amazing wildlife and half expected it to be our luck that we would see no wildlife at all - couldn't be more wrong. The hotel is a little way from the entrance to the park but the property and its surroundings make it well worth the drive. The hummingbirds, deer and wild turkeys flocked […] around the veranda and made for a memorable and unique stay. Clay and Joy were wonderful hosts, cooking delicious breakfasts each morning - perfect for hikers! We stayed at quite a few hotels during our holiday, but this was by far the most amazing of our holiday if not of any we have stayed in. Would love to return! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Family of 5 at Yosemite B and B"
FABULOUS!! We are a family of 5 spending 2 weeks exploring California and our 2 nights here for Yosemite were a real highlight. We stayed in the 2 bedroomed cottage which had full cooking facilities, a large comfortable sofa bed and 2 bathrooms. The property has a lovely pool and huge deck for guests use with BBQs around. The views are spectacular, […] the breakfasts home made and delicious, and the welcome warm and friendly. Very helpful tips on the local area and exploring Yosemite valley (45 mins drive away). We are all determined to return. Thank you Joy and Clay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Amazing place ! Joy and Clay are very friendly, gave us great tips of the city and restaurants. Stayed in the sage room, small but has everything we needed and more. The bed was a little too soft at our taste. Had an incredible breakfast prepared by Joy. Would definitely stay there again ! :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely B&B with great hosts"
This B&B is great! You stay in an annex to the house and Joy & Clay make you breakfast in their house every morning. The Room itself had a kettle, fridge, microwave and selection of drinks etc. Which was great. A lovely drive into Yosemite NP - about an hour to get to the visitors centre. Mariposa town is amazing, looks very western still! - However, […] you cannot walk there, you will need a car (and a designated driver) a few lovely restaurants and great place altogether.

"Oasis of tranquillity"
A restful stay after a day driving through Yosemite. Able to relax in the pool, in a hammock or sitting on the deck at sunset watching the deer, turkeys and many varieties of birds, all within feet of the deck. The breakfast was excellent, the hosts very welcoming and we enjoyed mixing with other residents over breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A wonderful home and great hospitality."
If you are used to having a delcicious breakfast served to you each morning as humming hover outside the window and beautiful dear join you on the vernader, then the Yosemite B & B may not as magical as it was to us. The setting of the property is alson breathtaking - a number of guests subsequently do not bother venturing the Yosemite! The warmth and […] friendliness of Joy and Clay are second to none.
